Journey to distant lands renowned for brave warriors and fearsome weaponry in FireFly Studios' Stronghold: Crusader. This highly anticipated successor to the bestselling Stronghold combines the finest aspects from a city builder and a real-time strategy game. Lead a determined group of crusaders, forged by centuries of barbaric conflicts, or wage war against a powerful foreign invader amidst the haze of the desert heat.

Within impenetrable walls beats the heart of a thriving society full of fletchers, brewers, and armorers, while outside stalk enemy assassins, mighty war engines, and the constant threat of fire. As European nobles or Arabian warriors, conquer this unforgiving wasteland, defend desert fortresses, and lay siege to fearless enemies during the legendary crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries.

sign up in this petition and lets get their attention!

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/firefly-must-release-gm1-code-or-add-skirmish-to/

the target of this petition is to force firefly to add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 or release the gm1 code so we can mod it. firefly must release also tools like AIV and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection and the ability to add new fully configurable AI opponents.
----
You me and the rest of the good customers of firefly we pay money and we continue
do that.

what firefly do in return?
releases stronghold crusader "extreme" a pathetic excuse of a game with no point what so ever. instead of adding skirmish in the existing one stronghold 1.

We sent massages but we get nothing in return. all we see its a faceless company!

they don't want to release gm1 code, and so we cant mod.
if they want to keep it secret ok but in return do what we want!
WE are buying and you sell it.

What we want is:
1)add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 OR release the gm1 code so we can mod it.
2)release also tools like AIV, and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection, and attack methods.
3)the ability to the user to add new fully configurable AI
opponents.(faces,voices,animation,army customization.ect..)

We will not buy any of your games if you don't proceed as we ordered.

agreed. firefly needs to update stronghold 1 or im not playing it anymore. i've been waiting 14 years, e-mailing firefly everyday demanding they include the new features i want (i cant tell you becaus someone could steal my ideas and then when firefly updates a new patch or announce someone will copt paste my ideas to them first before me.

im with you brother i can't believe firefly has the ***** to not respond to us when we demand old game from 14 years ago and that be updated with new features either stronghold firefly needs to program new features into game which likely would demand writing entire sections of code to accommodate new feature for old game from new game. but they should do that anyways because we are the one who bought the game. its not right. firefly docking and dodging i cant believe they even have made game with how they act like this they need to get their houses in order so all of us who want to play the original stronghold 1 (no not xbox 1 lol) but with features of new games so that we can be smiles. after they add in my secret features i am publicly now releasing news;

i am demanding stronghold 1 so the game changes with time. like after the middle ages they should make it like rise of nations so that people get guns and tanks and new walls from other fps games with special look. i say this now but if you try and steal this and send it to firefly i will find you. no reason why firefly cant do this, doesnt make sense. i like your idea of new AI in 2008 spore from EA made procedural generated ai that move forward annd change with game based on things. 2008 was only 7 years before ea did this so it's not excuse for firefly why they didn't do this or add it in. doesnt make sense. damn firefly to hell im not buying any new games and im boycott good luck brothers

Woah. That was weird. I bumped my head and I think I may have cached a case of retardation. I feel better now, though, thank heavens, was worried I may have had to live the rest of my life as a retard.
