When we put a ZIP file of a custom campaign in the “local” folder in the “mods” folder, then it should show up in game in the “custom campaign” selection section. This is essential as I adjust the icons of scenarios and check if the campaign scenarios are well done.

However, I can’t make it this time.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create a custom campaign mod folder (A ZIP file)
  2. Put the ZIP folder in the “locals” folder in the “mods” folder.
  3. Enter the AOE2: DE and see if it shows up in the “Custom Campaign” section.

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

Then, the campaign is supposed to show up in the list of custom campaigns.

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.


Because of this bug, I can’t adjust my campaign icons and see whether the campaign works fine.

I pasted another custom campaign which was successful in the past, and of course, it failed this time. This is the reason why I judged it’s a new bug.

Maybe since the last update.

Please check this phenomenon.

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

Oh, wait. I was wrong.

I should’ve UNZIP the ZIP file… My god… Why do I always forget something I’ve always done?

it works now fortunately.

However, regardless of this, I found something strange: in the “local” folder, always a random “info” text file pops up. The file is of a random event mod. I don’t find if it causes a problem, but just there’s this. It seems since the last patch.
