[TX/Ares - Mission] - Westwood's The Avengers


Recommended Posts

My second large-scale YR mission, again on a detailed 200x200 map.

The mission itself is finished, but string-tables (ingame mission briefing) are not implemented, so follow the briefing in the readme file.
Play it by starting the soviet campaign. Playthrough time is roundabout 3-4 hrs.

I added some Ares tags. Although this mission works without Ares, but it adds some additional features.

Download link is below the pictures.

Einstein was captured and is now forced to work for the soviets.
We sent a special ops team to free him, but due bad weather the team was dropped at the wrong place. Go out and find your way back.
When you got Einstein, you have to destroy the research he has done for the soviets: Destroy the red tech centre.

There are a few AI bugs I didn't managed yet:

- AI sometimes places buildings somewhere in the map

- AI doesn't repair any newly placed buildings (both bugs apply only to buildings placed from the AutoBaseBuilding trigger action)



Einsteins prison is heavy guarded



Yuri made Boris angry


Soviet helicopter assault





Terrain expansion is not included and has to be downloaded separately, e.g. in the last two posts of this thread.

Without expandmd06.mix placed in your game folder, the missions will crash.

Ares can be downloaded here: https://launchpad.net/ares/2.0/2.0p1

It's problematic to play these missions from skirmish, as I would have to reset all houses etc and, if I remember right, cell triggers and NodeCounts don't work too.

Which game version do you use? Did you place the expandmd06.mix in your folder?

I find out how Cell tag or triggers work .. I convert a map but it take too much time, I will make video soon how cell triggers work, it's based on what country you choose to play if you choose america and the tag about russia it wont to load the trigger.

I have two version old one and new one.. but after I was try to make game work on win 10 something happened so after I load map I can't see anything of the game, I just hear sound.

expandmd06.mix is that file which I have linked here and in the post below, containing the art files which are used in the terrain expansion, e.g. new terrain surfaces like concrete cliffs in a winter map, etc. If this file is not placed whithin the game folder, my mission will crash upon start.

I reuploaded the terrain expansion file, because it is really hard to find in the www.

Due to file size limits, I had to split this up into two posts. see previous post for part 1. Use 7zip to extract.

Many thanks, is this TX expansion compatible with the original version from 2004? If so Ive two missions that I wrote way back then that have working tunnels ect, which I could upload in the forums.
