Warcraft 2 Campaign Maps
The game featured two separate storylines, one ending with victory for the orcs, while the other ended with victory for the humans. For a discussion on which aspects of each storyline ultimately became part of the lore of the Warcraft universe, see the discussion of retcons. While the two stories interweave for the most part there is some divergence towards the end of each campaign.

Cho'gall reports that the Khaz Modan Refineries are well maintained and fulfilling their quotas. The Horde will now have more than enough Oil to mount a fierce campaign in the lands far to the north. Only the troublesome Human defenders of Stromgarde remain to be dealt with before sending the Horde on its next sojourn. The Human fleet has captured a group of our Transports just south of Stromgarde. Recapture these vessels and then lay waste to their capital.
The Northlands have fallen, and now only the western regions of Lordaeron stand defiant before the ultimate supremacy of the Horde. As the Orc clans prepare for their final, massive campaign against the weakening Alliance, the War Chief sends you ill tidings... Gul'dan and his Stormreaver clan have betrayed the Horde and coerced the Twilight's Hammer clan to set sail and search for an ancient tomb said to be buried beneath the waves. An infiltrator under the direction of Doomhammer reports that Gul'dan has indeed raised volcanic islands from the ocean floor and thus has opened a hidden vault. While it is unknown what the great Warlock has released from this tomb, the War Chief has issued this command - Destroy the renegade clans and return with the head of Gul'dan.
The maps in Tides of Darkness are far larger than those in Orcs and Humans. The largest are four times bigger than the original maps. It features SVGA graphics with an improved user interface. You can now group up to 9 units at a time, with 6 units being able to find on sea transports.
However i didnt find anyone talking about playing custom maps. The maps i cant seem to "find" are the ones that the program (warcraft II) loads from files that are outside of the game. Each of this maps is a diferent file, on a diferent folder.
I didn't try to play custom maps yet, but this looks like a mounting error. You're mounting "c:\juegos\warcraftii\war2" as c:\, which means the directory the game is installed to becomes c:\. But the game probably expects to be installed in a subdirectory of c:\, so you could try to mount "c:\juegos\warcraftii\" as c:\. This is just a guess, but trying the alternate mount may be worth a shot.
Im sorry but I have got exactly the same error as yourself. However I am less computer literate than you and am struggling to understand how this error was fixed. I have been trying despearatly for the last 2 days but cant my head round it. I mount only my c:dosgames and then click cd until I get my war 2 folder but then when the game loads it doesnt recognise the cd. To fix this I have to only mount the whole folder then it loads but doesnt load puds. Is there a way I can fix this or I am doing it incoerrectly. Please Please help I so despearatly want to use the custom maps and I am sure there is a solution.
Hello-this makes the 2nd time I've posted to a blog so please be patient with me in case there's some protocol I'm not following well. I've got a question about a PCGame (War Craft II Tides of Darkness ((or TOD)) & Beyond the Dark Portal ((or BTDP)) Expansion Set). I downloaded the TOD first and played it but soon encountered inconsistent program shut down to the desktop, no warning or the game still playing. The same thing happened when I downloaded and got 3-4 campaigns into the BTDP expansion set. For both games, I'm to the point at each respective scenario I can't proceed b/c the game shuts down within 10 seconds to a black screen and then the desktop appears. Can anybody help me out??? Thanks if you can! I'm willing to pay money if someone has a solution. My f-in-law told me to reduce/change the graphics, which I did but to no solution. Please help!
The chronicles of Azeroth include the remake of the three original Warcraft game (orcs and humans, Tides of Darkness+Beyond the Dark Portal, Reign of Chaos+Frozen Throne) and new ones based on wow lore (vanilla-Temple of Ahn'qiraj, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm + maybe future wow expansion) with campaign and multiplayer melee gameplay.
Thus, just as fans previously built their own online gameplay updates in the form of WC3Champions, so too has the game's remaining community stepped up to make the single-player campaign better resemble Blizzard's initial pitch for the project.
WarCraft III: Re-Reforged is a fan-made project apparently led by a single designer who goes by the handle InsaneMonster. It received its second substantial update on Saturday, following its original January 2021 launch as a downloadable pack of WC3R campaign files. The project is now up to 10 in-game chapters: the five chapters of WC3's Horde-specific prologue, which already launched last year, and the first five chapters of its human-focused first act. You can now access both parts of Re-Reforged as free downloads at Hive Workshop (part one, part two).
Like the prologue portion, this week's fan-made patch includes custom camera angles for cinematic in-game content, not only between missions but also for important mid-campaign conversations. These shots much better resemble the originally teased version of WC3R, and they include pauses and careful camera framing to better showcase Blizzard's original campaign content. Additionally, InsaneMonster has remixed the affected campaign maps without changing their primary objectives or flow. Some changes emphasize a cinematic moment, while others reflect lessons learned from the campaigns in Blizzard's StarCraft II and guide brand-new players more nimbly through how the game works.
The year is 2016, and despite the efforts of the United States Marine Corps and the Special Air Service, the Ultranationalists seize control of Russia and declare Imran Zakhaev a hero and martyr, erecting a statue of him in the heart of the Red Square. Meanwhile, Vladimir Makarov, one of Zakhaev's former lieutenants, begins a campaign against Europe by committing brutal acts of terrorism over the course of five years. In Afghanistan, U.S. Army Ranger PFC Joseph Allen assists his commanding officer Sgt. Foley in training the local soldiers until he is called to run a training course overseen by Lieutenant General Shepherd, who is recruiting one of the Rangers for a special operation. After completing the course, Allen and the rest of the 75th Ranger Regiment assists in the taking of a city from local OpFor soldiers. Impressed by Allen's abilities, General Shepherd recruits him into "Task Force 141", an elite, multi-national counter-terrorist unit under Shepherd's command. Meanwhile, two other members of 141, Cpt. 'Soap' MacTavish and Sgt. Gary 'Roach' Sanderson infiltrate a Russian airbase in the Tian Shan mountains to retrieve an ACS (Attack Characterization System) module from a downed satellite. During their infiltration, Soap orders Roach to plant explosives to cover their escape, but is compromised while retrieving the ACS. While they are pursued by enemy forces, both men manage to escape with the module.
A new Special Ops mode includes one and two player cooperative play. Special Ops mode includes several fast-paced action missions similar to "Mile High Club" which are more difficult than normal campaign missions and are not related to the main storyline. It picks out certain parts of the single-player campaign that "work well with co-op". Missions are unlocked by earning stars, which are acquired by playing levels at certain difficulties. Regular difficulty earns one star, hardened earns two, and veteran earns three. Missions are divided into five groups, named Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, and Echo - the last being the hardest. Within the groups, there are types of missions such as "Breach and Clear" and "Elimination". There are special enemy types, such as those using Riot Shields, even the Special Ops exclusive Juggernaut, wearing heavy bomb squad armor. There are a total of 23 Special Ops missions, two of which are only playable in two player co-op due to one player assisting the other in carrying out the mission's objective from air support.
Multiplayer is similar to the previous two titles on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. However, multiplayer on the PC is quite different from previous games. The PC version no longer includes dedicated server support. While previous Call of Duty titles allowed multiplayer matches with up to 64 people and user-made maps and mods, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on PC is almost identical to console versions.
Weapons attachments return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with a few changes. Firstly, new attachments were introduced, such as the Thermal Scope and Heartbeat Sensor. Secondly, some weapon attachments are now unlocked through the use of other attachments, such as getting 20 kills looking through the ACOG Scope to unlock the Thermal Scope or 60 kills looking down the RDS to unlock the Holographic Sight. Lastly, the Grip and Grenade Launcher no longer count as a tier one perk. There are a total of 14 weapon attachments, although not all attachments are available for all weapons. Enemies throughout the campaign will now carry weapons customized with a variety of attachments. When a player goes to pick up a weapon, it will actually tell them what attachments the gun has, except when the gun is using Bling or does not have any attachments.
