Know of any news that deserves to grace the front page of the mighty Age of Kings Heaven? Post it here and we'll be sure to do it justice! And now, a quick Q/A so you can understand what we're looking for in this section:

Q) I don't have a forum account but I have some really interesting news! How do I get it to you?
A) If you cannot post here for whatever reason, feel free to e-mail your news to the webmaster at leif.ericson [at] heavengames.com.

Q) Why are there so many closed threads in this forum? Is someone drunk?!
A) Many news items already have threads dedicated to them and where discussion is underway, so closing is our way of redirecting the conversation elsewhere; we always provide a link. Remember, our news serves two purposes: bringing attention to a certain topic, and encouraging discussion.

Q) Could I request a news thread about something unrelated to Age of Kings?
A) Keep news requests related Age of Kings and the site, since they're both our specialization. If your news submission follows this criteria, but is off-site, please provide a link.

If you have news about anything else, feel free to post about it in our Town's Crier community forum. If it's particularly interesting, we may post about it.

Q) Could I have my project featured in the Work-In-Progress Spotlight (incomplete projects) or Blacksmith Features (complete projects)?
A) If you would like to recommend your project for either of these features, send an e-mail to the respective administrators in charge of each. Although the administrators generally pick themselves, there may be a thread for recommendations in the future. Alternatively you could post a showcase yourself in our Scenario Design & Modding forum.

Q) I made a great discussion thread, but nobody's posting in it! Could you wonderful people post about it in the news so it gets more attention?
A) We're always on the look out for any great discussion threads on the different aspects of the game, and we may post about it if we decide it's worthy of front page coverage. However, remember that it must be a well-made discussion; we wouldn't touch topics like "What civilization is the best?" or "Where can I find the gold in the editor?" with a ten-foot pole.

If you have any questions about existing news items or the News Discussion forum, feel free to ask in this thread.

Yeah, .txt is fine for sure. I'm not positive on WordPad. It could just be related to Word.

While playing the new expansion (african kingdoms).I discovered some small but annoying glitches that might ruin custom campaigns:
Versions: 4.6.919850
Summary: Custom campaign opening procedures do not function.
Reproduction: Attempt to play a scenario from a custom campaign.
Expected Results: The scenario instructions/history/hints/bitmap screen appears with content set by the custom scenario designer in the editor.
Actual Results: The scenario instructions/history/hints/bitmap screen does not open when starting a custom campaign scenario. Instead, the scenario starts immediately. This inhibits the player because it does not allow him to read background information provided by the scenario designer.

Versions: 4.6.919850
Summary: Movie files (.avi) do not play for custom campaigns
Reproduction: Attempt to play a custom campaign scenario with custom introductory, victory, and defeat cinematics.
Expected Results: Introductory cinematics open and play when a custom campaign scenario is started. Victory or defeat cinematics play appropriately at the conclusion of a scenario.
Actual Results: No cinematics play at all.

I've been waiting for a solution for an entire year and the oficial team hasn't fixed it yet.

To be fair you posted in the obscure part of AoKH, the one only the braves sometimes visit

But I agree with you I would welcome back some community spotlight, but I understand mods must be busy and don't necessarily have much time for it. Still, that's a nice feature, it's fun to learn more about people in the community.

This is pretty much the reason. Each feature usually takes 2-3 hours to complete, at least for me. We'd like to bring them back at some point.

That honestly looks really good. Hopefully they didn't demolish the core coding in some hack attempt at a remaster. Because I would totally buy that if it plays the same with some improvements.

I mean, that's exactly what I said about HD, and then they ripped the soul out of the game, so not holding my breath.

Just a suggestion, why not add the new total conversion mods to the main page with chivalry and tome?

Eg pcm/ sengoku mod/ aoe 1 conversion/ age of vampires.
