New Custom Campaign - First Mission : Home is where the War is

Hello AOE2 community !

Here it is, the first mission of my custom campaign "Rise of Kukulkan" (sorry for the confusion, the first one I published was actually a prologue -however you need to play it to understand the story,you will find it in my other shared files ;) ). I'd like to thank you all very, very, very much for trying out the prologue and giving me such positive feedback. It has really encouraged me to carry on with my scenarios and I am now thinking about making this a 5 - 6 scenarios campaign, hoping that the quality will only increase throughout the missions. I am giving it my best, and it really is a pleasure to see so many people checking it out. So, thanks again, and don't forget to tell me if anything bothers you, or if there is something you'd like to see in the next missions ;)

In this scenario, you will be put in the shoes of the young general Malkin. 20 years after the revolution that took place in the prologue, Europe has lost all contact with South America and is torn apart by Civil War. Malkin is trying to unite the families in the North once again, by participating in tournaments and by leading his army through the country. But after discovering a trail of rotting corpses in the fields, he is about to find out, that the War is on a much higher scale than everyone suspects, and that maybe the Ancient World shouldn't have forgotten the New one...

/!\ PLEASE NOTE : This scenario DOES require "the Forgotten". I apologize if some of you do not possess this expansion ; however, I think the textures added in this expansion allow for more variety in the design of cities and units, and so allows me to make more diversified maps. Nevertheless, if you don't have it, I recommend you buy "the Forgotten" for example on a Steam summer sale when it is on 50% sale, because though it is very expensive, there are some really cool new textures and units !

/!\ BUG ALERT : For some reason, I have no idea why, you have to do something BEFORE playing the scenario : when on the menu, click on the banner above "play aoe2HD", and then RE-CLICK it ("play aoe2 the forgotten"). Now it should work, else the game will crash as soon as you exit the village. If it still crashes after the village, play again, 2 or 3 times. My brother tested it and it would only work after 3 times. Last but not least, please select "standard" difficulty mode. It won't actually affect the difficulty, but it'll prevent some triggers to go buggy.

I truly am sorry for these bugs ; I don't wan't you to think I have published something unfinished, I've put dozens of hours in this work and have tried to create something original and "big", I just really have no idea how to fix these problems. Maybe there are too many triggers ? If anyone has an idea about this, please tell me ! But then again, if you do this manipulation before playing, it should work, it does on my computer.

That's it, now enjoy, and as always feel free to comment and criticize on any matter you want !

Thank you for the support :)

Great !! And yes I am aware of it, I just love making scenarios where you don't really need to build a complete base, more adventure-like, but the next one will require that you build a complete camp and will be longer and more difficult, I promise ;)

This is bugged, game closes very early in (approximately by time get to the gate)
