Dark Fortress is our first map created with the EZ-Scar script, which makes multiplayer and single-player scar coding easy.
It is a 1-4 player against the computer map that adapts the difficulty of the map according to the number of players. You start outside a fortress with a base, and when you are ready to begin the attack, destroy the squad that is patrolling. Their demise will trigger the first wave of attackers. Then, march your way through the twisting path, through each progressively harder opposing force, until you destroy the final base.
Even though the opposing forces are auto-generated, your choice of "enemy" race will affect the race of the opposing forces. As your choice of attacking race will affect the buildings and defenses you are given as you progress. ~Gaffer
Dark Fortress is a multiplayer map for up to 4 players against the AI. The map uses EZScar, a script that automatically adjusts the difficulty for the number of players. Player 2 should be your "enemy" AI player of any race you desire to attack. This map is race-aware, in that, any races you choose will be used, even though most of the attacking and defending teams buildings are generated automatically. The map, while hard to lose, is still rather tough in spots. It is an excellent map for those desiring a multiplayer scenario map. To install it, unpack the contents of the zip file to your Dark Crusade/DXP2/Data/Scenarios/MP folder. It should create a "Data/Scenarios/MP/loading" directory with the loading image for Dark Fortress in it. Along with this map is the documentation for EZScar, and one version of the EZScar script. EZScar makes multiplayer or single-player scenario maps easy to create. Enjoy.
