1. Get Stronghold Crusader,

2. search online for Stronghold Europe Mod

3. clean that Arab shit from your Game files with it

4. play with bots because multiplayer matches are littered with basement dwellers that will fuck your little boypussy

would be nice if someone recreates an open source variant,

i'm thinking about new Gamemodes for multiplayer, something like economic goals that you have to reach as a team: get a big amount of stone before the time runs out, or against others: Free for All wood collection, player with the most amount of wood wins, Free Building from Singleplayer but now in Multiplayer…

you don't, extreme is retarded. the only way to go is turtling yourway and holding out as much as possible until you get le epic materialise out of thin hair a rain of boulders to wipe out all those fucking barracks that spawn troops forever and ever, and then you can play a normal game for real human beings. just play original crusader.

I can only speak for crusader since I haven't played the hd version of the original. HD version has a new, additional campaign, it adds a bunch of characters (nearly doubling the original cast) and has native 1920x1080 resolution support, that's all.

Stockpiles in 1 and crusader can't get destroyed by anything. In 2 they replaced it with a building that can indeed burn and get destroyed by fire

Man, I love anand hate both Stronghold and crusader.. They all have pros and cons, but I hate how the cons usually makes me wish both of them could be one without all the cons.


>Looks far better than shit skin

My biggest clutch with crusader is that the mercenaries basically ruined the game and although gameplay wise the game was easier to identify shit like ledges, the original simply looks better with all the green and the castles. The original one is also a proper "siege/defend" simulation, fuck ninjas. All in all, I wish the first one had as much characters as the second one, and fucking single player skirmishes.


Does the HD version have the same problems to play in LAN as AoE2 HD had? I just want to play comfily with some friends.

At least when playing the Crusader skirmish trail, usually trash warfare. Lots of archers to defend, to park on enemy economy to starve them out or to siege with human wave tactics, some spears to fight other melee, demolish buildings and kill lords, and some siege, particularly Siege Towers if I can. Add more siege, defensive crossbows or heavy infantry as needed.

I'll just leave this here. https://github .com/Sh0wdown/UnofficialCrusaderPatch/releases

A quick rundown on the patches/features:


>Disable AI Oxen spam

>Smarter AI Trading

>AI buys enough wood so they can allways build bows

>Unlimited defensive siegeweapons on towers for AI

>AI doesnt switch target during an attack

>Improve AI repair (they didnt repair partially destroyed towers)

>Generally improve/fix AI castles (some didnt work at all)

AI Improvements

>Increase AI attack frequency

>Improve AI attack army size

>Choose which target the AI chooses (nearest, richest, weakest)

>Disable AI setting production on hold when its attacked

>Disable AI deleting lots of stuff to gain resources when its besieged

>Increase the rate at which the AI attacking force grows (so it gets bigger armies quicker)

>Increase recruiting speed


>Increase Laddermen HP to take more Arrows/Bolts (still weak to spears etc)

>Increase Arab Swordmen HP to tank more bolts (still "weak" to regular infantry)

>Increase Spearman HP to tank more Arrows (still weak …)


>Change Player color

>Make WASD work to scroll across map

>Pharmacy guy can now heal wounded (very slow tho) (position troops you want healed next to the pharmacy to make it quicker)

>Free marketplace

>No longer have to select which siege engine you want to build again and again, it stays selected

>Moads you want to build are allways visible

>Increased maximum game speed (up to 1000)

>Gates react quicker to enemies, detection range lowered though (so you cant shut down production just by having one soldier run around every so often)

>Increase overall maximum army size

>Added Spectator mode (buggy)

You can select what you want of those options and there's more detailed tooltips in the installer.

The early vids he has up are still /v/core and he still drops chan shit in every vid, it's just extremely subtle now so mongoloids and normalfags don't suspect.

Mandalore is a respectable /v/irgin who knows how to hide his power level, unlike you underaged faggots and your epic shillposting contests to see who's the most elite retard on this shitty little stale board run by a fat gay NEET kike.

I'm really bad about actually building castles, I just wall off a nice chunk of the map using rivers and rocks and defend it really well. If a river bisects the map I don't even build a wall, just gatehouses on the crossings.

Place single towers, no walls, in the general direction of where the enemy is coming from. The AI is too stupid to assack the towers and will just try to rush to your keep, but your archers will wipe them out

><Mercenaries makes makimaking weapons a waste of time

Yeah it is tempting to simply go for 80 gold archer but when you have limited economy you are much better off going with 100 gold fletcher's and regular archer costing only 12 gold. You are basically cutting your expenses 6 times after the initial payment.

It is important because 2000 starting gold won't usually defend you but it will get you 6-8 workshops as well as getting your economy going and after you start making bows you pretty much snowball with near free archers. After you have enough archers you will be able to sell bows as additional income.

Rest of the units are 100% your decision between more economy or just making weapons. Both are valid but more economy is just easier thing to do.

Also one strategy I found to be decent at defense is spending your money at fire ballista. They suck for cleaning archers but high single target damage is very cost effective way to make sure no armored units get close.

Just putting it out there to show that mercenaries are not everything.

Have you tried making a 3x3 square tower with nine ballistae? That's 315+7 stone, 180 gold for the engies and 450 for the artillery. It's also capable of halting anything other than over nine thousand horse archers but then again, what is?

Probably the one they warn that we are literally running out of internet. As in that there wasn't physically any way that wireless bandwidth could be expanded to allow enough mobile data/WLAN/WiFI in densely populated areas. It turned out to not be a problem because what they thought (and mentioned in the video) to be unthinkable happened and TV giants relinquished their old broadcasting frequencies for mobile data/WLAN/WiFI.

bfc753  No.16094272

I played this game when I was quite young, I got into the mission where you invade Pig's castle. I had to let fire trap kill half of my army, made it almost to the final Stronghold but then a hunter's lodge, that I couldn't destroy, started infinite respawn of hunter that whittled down what little remained of my army. So I couldn't kill the enemy Lord (Pig.)
