Well, we've been doing some excavations in some long lost parts of the site and unearthed the Crusader FAQ Ztolk had been working on months ago.

You can find it here.

If you think any information is missing...please add it to this post?

Thank you kindly.

Yes,there's something missing with the Crusader FAQ!

It's this:
What do the dots above the units(both Arab and European)mean?

I don't know the answer but I think you know it!Just add it to the FAQ!!

Yes,mi lord!!
And now I know what do those dots mean!!

The dots has 2 colors,red and green,those are the troop bonus which mean,the more green dots your troops above their heads,the more it will be more invulnerable against enemy attacks,but when your troops has more red dots above them,they are more vulnerable with enemy attacks.Confusing,isn't it?

Well,I think Jayhawk or Ztolk know how to rephrase my sentence but it's TRUE,I tell you!!

P.S.Does the forum has some new looks!!?

We already have an article on fear factor, but maybe we could have a question based on the coloured dots.

Jayhawk changed the colours because some people thought the old ones were too gloomy. I personally liked them.

Yes. If you have enough positive or negative fear factor, dots appear. You get fear factor by placing Good Things and Bad Things.

I have heard of this bug before at another website. Only happens in Crusdaer and is very rare. Happened with macemen in the case I remeber. It is a rare phenomenon....

And I don't think anything can be done

Hi all! I'm kinda new to this forum(registered today) but i've read a lot of topics that you guys have put up here. Very interesting. I'm half on my way to buy crusader but i've got a question.

Is "Crusader" an add-on where you need the regular version of stronghold to play or is it a stand-alone?

I hope you'll excuse my spelling, i'm from finland, you know.

Thanks!

Hi Benizio,


welcome to the Stronghold/Crusader Forum and have fun here!

To answer your question: Crusader is a stand-alone version, you don't need the original Stronghold for that.


Greetings

Hi, I'm new too and got Crusader recently (bought it just with the jewel case [new, but at a discount price], so no manual), and I have a really simple question.

In the original Stronghold, you could change the difficulty setting in the briefing screen...How do you change it in Crusader? I can't find a difficulty setting anywhere!!!

Unfortunately, Crusader missions don't have difficulty levels (unless my memory is mistaken).

I have noticed that in Stronghold Crusader, units won't climb ladders at all. I tested this in the editor, using a simple enemy stonewall and archers. The green arrows appeared above the wall, but upon clicking, did nothing.

This is a strange problem and I don't understand it.
It is version 1.1.

It sounds like you have a version of Crusader that doesn't need the patch. You might have to uninstall it and reinstall it (but save any custom maps you have). More info on the versions and patches can be found here.

I have a few, (rather n00bish ) questions.
  • I recently bought the crusader jewel case version, and decided to update it. Googled a bit and found update version 1.2. However, since I updated with that, all building icons appear as if they were the original stronghold ones. I think the cause is that I updated with a stronghold patch. Could you please tell me wether this is the case, and whether I need another patch or not?
  • How do I reinstall without losing my savegames, bonus AIs campaign progress and custom faces?
  • How do I rotate the engineer's guild when placing?
    Again, I am sorry to bother you with this.
    Many thanks in advance.

    well you make a save were you are in the campaign and then copy that save and all the others to some place else but not the stronghold/crusader folder. and copy the faces picture as well. and then reinstall and place the files in the saves map and in the crusader map

    I dont really know about this, but reinstalling and patch it with the crusader :P patch and it should work fine.

    Sorry there is no way to rotate buildings.

    You are more than welcome with this sort of questions.
    Cheers\

    You can uninstall and reinstall the program, Theris264 - I believe you're right in that you didn't need the patch.

    As for rescuing your saved games... what I would do is make a copy of your saves folder (C:\Program Files\FireFly Studios\Stronghold Crusader\saves) to your desktop and rename it, then move the saved files back to the new saves folder after reinstalling.

    Well, thank you very much, Arn_de_Gothia and Kester!
    I did exactly as you told me, and now everything works fine.
    Strange though that I could update Crusader with a Stronghold patch.

    I play Crusader with the 8 new opponents and was playing the Crusader Trail today in a match against 2 Emir and the Wazir with Longarm as an ally. When the game drew out and only the Wazir remained, terrible lag struck it.Animation and scrolling was jumpy and whacked. There's enough ram and there was only a few hundred units on the map. I've tried loading the save again and again but its the same. I don't want to play that level oncemore so does anyone know a cheat for more chickens or something like that? The slow down is very irritating and usually only occurs briefly following a long mouse drag. Any ideas?

    I want to hop between levels in both Crusader Trails.
    How is it that single AI opponents in Crusader Trail operate more constructively than in regular custom games?

    If you play on a map with alot of running water EG : Waterfalls this can cause alot of lag. Try closing down any other programs (Msn those kind of things), this would make the game run smoother.
