Another Crusader Modification ( Updated )

Author File Description
File Details
Used with: Crusader
Hi there,

( File updated )

I read AZ ViTrAzhAs also made a Crusader Modification and saw the problems he had. It had the common problems when copying the original Stronghold files to the Crusader folder.

I already had an Crusader MOD to look like the original Stronghold Game, made by someone else, but it only had to have a finishing touch.

So here it is without any bugs as far as i know. The problems with the gatehouses, towers diagonal walls, hovels, waterpots, outposttowers are all gone!

How to install:

Uncompress the zip file and then uncompress the .rar file using winrar or 7-zip.

Go to your folder where Crusader is installed ( Common: C:\Program Files\Firefly Studios\Stronghold Crusader )

Go to the GM folder and make a copy of this folder, because you will need it if you want to look Crusader as it should be. Then copy the files from the folder to the GM folder and replace them with the original files.

Now play and enjoy!

Don't thank me for fixing those bugs. That was already done in the other MOD i used. So i only switched some little files and the MOD was ready.
maxxlu You can also download Stronghold Crusader Expansion Pack. I think, it's the original mod that Hypernova90 used. It makes backup of all files. You can get it here:

lordnealius I`ve have also being doing some mods of my own by changing the Crusader arab units to english units, by using elfofires sronghold image toolbox, heres how:

for example if you wanted to change the arab swordsman for a english swordsman from Stronghold or Crusader you just overwrite the body_arab_swordsman.gm1 with the english swordsman by loading up the body_swordsman.gm1 and clicking save to overwrite the body_arab_swordsman.gm1 and your done, i have also done this with the arab archer and horse archer, but have have problems with the animation as the number of frames are different for each unit, as when i replaced the arab horse with the knight it would disappear whilst standing still, and when attacking would shoot a arrow from his sword, so the best thing to do is find a unit that has the same number of frames or a similar amount other than that i dont know unless there is some way of extracting each individual .bmp image and deleting it so that the frames match up or a way of changing the frame number of each unit somehow, but it would also be good if you could add new units builings to the game, but theres not a tool for this yet.

I have also been trying to figure out how to allow you to build wooden walls in Crusader but i`ve had no luck, the wooden walls are in the files tile_builings1.gm1, file_castle.gm1 and tile_walls.gm1 there are wodden walls, stone walls and towers from the original stonghold but have a different importance option of "DontLoad" so i changed them all to "Always", BUT IT STILL NEVER WORKED ! but i think the tile_data.gm1 may be the problem as you can`t change it as the game will crash. but i`ll have another go a changing the file around.

KnightsofValour Thanks Hypernova90 for posting this. One thing that i noticed was that the land on the modified version did not match when trying to blend scrub to oasis. There were random light and dark parts that did not match. I started changing up the files from the crusader gm to the modded crusader one. I found that if i switched the land_3 and land_8 files, the land changed so now scrub, thick scrub and oasis blended together but the rocks and vegetation. Is there anyway i could get the stronghold mecenerary characters??
aeg4k The anim_castle.gm1

crashes the game so i switched that one with my original Strongold1 anim_caslte and it works but the towers look really weird like the squaretower has the round towers upper parts etc

am i the only one with this problem?
Daniyal Shahid Can anyone help me i didn't back up my files and i need those folders such as maps, GM and Blinks.
maxxlu Hi all,

Seems like all RapidShare links are gone, so I have uploaded my mod to this site:

It makes backup, so it could be easily reverted.
