Armageddon - by Lord_of_Hell

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Impossible
Made with version: 1.1

A r m a g e d d o n


Are you ready? You can't be. In a game of 8 years length, it's your 900 men against 4000 enemy troops, 1800 of them coming right since in the first seconds. You will soon find out that even speed 20 is a bit too fast.
The ZIP also includes the full (fictional) story and detailed instructions. The folders "name_files" and the web documents should stay (extracted) in the same place especially the one related to instructions or you will not see the pictures in the document. The instructions and story documents are viewable by any of your browsers.

1. Due to the excess of pre-placed troops and their instant movement some players with less good computers may experience lag (game getting stuck every couple of seconds) during the beginning battle. For the game to run smoother in such circumstances, I suggest defragmenting the hard drive.

2. The map has a tough difficulty and may not be winnable by anyone. Actually, I've set the difficulty to impossible because it's my hardest map by now. However, unlike my style, I made 2 more (a bit easier) map versions trying keep the fun for everyone as the VH (original) version would have been considered too frustrating for its next-to-impossible difficulty. None of the playtesters could win it either yet. The current versions are VeryHard, Hard, and Medium and the differences between them are readable in the instruction document.


Thanks goes to:
- Peter2008 - Wintested an earlier version but had tech issues later on
- Adam the First - Suggested important improvements on gameplay and terrain
- Heroesflorian - Suggested important improvements on gameplay and terrain
- TwoDie - Tested some map issues

Author Notes

I'm happy to see this map finished, even if it's after almost 6 months and still has a couple of small improvable aspects in my opinion. It's a bit different than my very first concept but the basics are the same - a large battle followed by invasions. This is probably the largest battleground map made for SHC (followed by my other map Battle of Hattin).

Comments, reviews, opinions, all appreciated.
I wish you all good luck and have fun.

I don't know why, but WinRAR doesn't work for the ZIP archive downloaded even if I updated the file. The 7Zip archiver is able to open and extract the archive very well however.

Heroesflorian reported that the downloaded file works with WinRAR too, so I guess the problem was mine. Should there be any issues however, a post here is welcome.

Heroesflorian For me, however it worked both with winrar and 7zip.

That's a very special map you have made :) Looking forward to the day when I can win it lol...
Adam the First me too... ;)

Btw. Great Map, probably the best Battle in the Stronghold Crusader history I've ever seen. :)

wolfman4god Looks cool, can't wait to try it out, but you said, "map has a tough difficulty and may not be winnable by anyone." Does that mean you have never won it or it will be extremely hard to beat?

P.S. Let me know if I can playtest maps for you I'd love to help!

Heroesflorian @wolfman4god: He means that it is very hard to win it. But he has, of course won it already. Here a short quote of him...

"I always win my maps
what kind of noob mapmaker would I be then lol"

wolfman: yes, I won it by myself but it's very hard.. like Heroes said in the Skype chat too :D
Ofcourse, you can playtest one of my upcoming maps. Send me an e-mail so I can know yours (it's hidden) and I'll let you know when it's ready to be sent.

Thanks Peter, I hope you'll enjoy it :)
You are actually one of the players who have the skill & determination to win the VH version.
Hope you get out... alive :)
