Can anyone help me find an old custom scenario?

ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

Back in the day when I had the CD version of AoM, there was a custom multiplayer scenario I used to play all the time. It was an escape map.

All the players had to be Kronos, and the area that the runners started in was surrounded by two gates of troy.

The chasers used that "move a unit onto a statue to spawn that type of unit" style that was common in custom maps, and then near the end I think they got titans.

I've looked everywhere and haven't been able to find it. It's not Kronos Escape, and it's not the "MAZE ESCAPE" that can be found on AoM Heaven, although the design of the map was quite similar, from my memory, using grass and cliff for the most part, and having a couple of big spirally areas.

Anyone able to help me track down this old favourite of mine?

    There is a mod of it on Steam for the Steam version.

    What's it called..?

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=680307204&searchtext=escape

    sometimes people like to play as RA as well btw, even tough you can't teleport your sky thingies anymore you ARE able to seed farms (which are quite rare and important on these maps)

    Unfortunately that's not it.

    Tried the workshop? Many scenarios can be found in bundles there.

  • ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

    I haven't tried everything on the workshop, but I've done some searches and haven't been able to find it anywhere on the Steam Workshop so far. It's made difficult by the lack of screenshots on most of them.

    think I found it

  • ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

    As I said in the OP, unfortunately, it's not the one called Kronos Escape.

    Maybe this is it? Kronos' Revenge - Krv_v1_0003.zip. See attached.

    Here's what the installer reveals:

  • smitskesmitske Member, Insider ✭✭✭

    He said it is not kronos his revenge.
    Also an installer for a scenario? Rather fishy if you ask me.

  • DiveDive3726DiveDive3726 Somewhere in the lower 48Member, Insider ✭✭✭

    He did not say it's not Kronos Revenge... He said, "It's not Kronos Escape, and it's not the "MAZE ESCAPE" "

  • ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

    The comments on AoM Heaven seem to indicate that Kronos' Revenge is not an escape map, but a full-blown single-player campaign.

    Apologies for the double double post. I guess comments with links in them get sent to a moderator for approval prior to being made visible.

    @MochaTester5091 no, the one I'm thinking of does have time-shifts and sky portals.

    Sorry, I can't help you with this one, but thanks for making me remember the custom maps of AoeRor I used to play, I also forgot which ones I have downloaded over the time, that I wish I could get them again :confounded: .

  • flip35flip35 NetherlandsMember, Insider ✭✭✭

    @ZagorathAus what about forest escape?

  • ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

    @flip35 if you're referring to LS Forest Escape, no, it's not that. This one used cliffs to separate areas, and I don't think it had any trees. If it did have any, they were not a significant part of it.

    Kronos Revenge?? I used to love that one, so much fun

  • ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

    No I don't think it's called Kronos Revenge. That one seems to be a full campaign someone made, not an escape map.

    Maybe suggest it to Microsoft to add it to Definitive Edition!

    Does anyone here have an AoE 1 Disc

    There are mods with old custom scenario in Steam. Do you have this game on Steam?

  • ZagorathAusZagorathAus BrissyMember, Insider ✭✭

    Yeah I do. I haven't been able to find it there.
