Sep 15th 2016. V4D available. Contains small improvements.

Regarding Multiplayer

Aug 13th 2016. Successful Multiplayer gameplay video uploaded (below)

Aug 3rd 2016. I've been testing multiplayer via Hamachi in my home network, and it works smoothly. By solving the problems I've been experiencing with multiplayer maps, I can now announce the mod (V4C) is 100% multiplayer-capable and thoroughly tested. I even tested it with a high lag emulator.

However, when playing with some other remote machines, multiplayer games sometimes suffered from desync problems, which eventually led to crashes. The reason behind this has not been identified. Could be settings, could be wrong Wargus version, could be network connection problems.

Yet, even though I still do not know the cause of these problems, I know for sure the game and the mod are 100% stable in multiplayer when certain conditions are observed. Here's a video with a failed test:


Testing MP in V4C3. Success.

Intro to the old mod (V3)

Ponies in a classical strategy game... What a joke! And that's how it all started - ponies burning your villages and enslaving your kids, ponies rushing at your cannon towers. But MLP is a comedy show on it's own, so the first version of this mod was especially fun for those familiar with the show. Rarity being a peasant for the "evil side", forced to mine gold - I like that! This version of the mod is called V3, with V3A being multiplayer-capable. In V3, almost no aspect of the original game has been altered - every restriction has been observed, so the mod allowed to play anything Warcraft 2.

Intro to the new mod (V4)

But since MLP is not only about comedy and drugs, there've been folks who insisted a fantasy-themed MLP mod would be a better option, so I made the second version of this mod called Nightmoon, which is the secret kingdom of princess Luna that stood up against Canterlot. In this new version of the mod I used more opportunities offered by Wargus and Stratagus, and went a little beyond the limits of Warcraft 2, however trying to keep compatibility as much as possible. Nightmoon has several successful game modifications, which include:

  • Separate trees
  • Pegasi bombers
  • Habitable ships and towers

However, you can only use the new mod on maps that have old trees replaced.

V4 Nightmoon lacks the fun of V3, but has obtained a certain style and a fantasy feel. I like both versions.

All-team Organizer V3A

  • All units and buildings ponified, except the Runestone and such
  • Allows to play any Warcraft 2 game mode
  • Allows to play multiplayer

All-team Organizer V4B: Nightmoon

  • All units and buildings ponified
  • Standard Warcraft 2 campaign ponified
  • Includes several converted maps, and the map of Ponyville area to play custom games
  • Allows to play multiplayer
  • Other standard Warcraft 2 game modes or maps unusable unless converted

About Wargus

Stratagus is a game engine that runs as a background process.

Wargus is Warcraft 2 that installs using a Warcraft 2 CD or image, and relies on Stratagus to work. So technically, All-team Organizer is not a Warcraft 2 mod, but a Wargus mod.

Wargus used to have critical errors that prevented Multiplayer from working, but thanks to the good people, the fixed version of Wargus 2.4 had been released. Since it's easy to confuse with the standard 2.4, the right installer has been included in versions V3A and V4. These two use Stratagus 2.4 and Wargus 2.4. The older V3 uses Wargus 2.3 and Stratagus 2.3.

Balance changes to beware in V4:

  • "Rangers" are cloaked
  • Detectors are: Scout towers (only), Luna/Celestia, Rangers
  • "Knights" have been strengthened and made more expensive
  • Battleships and transports can transport units, allow them to fire on the move
  • Guard and cannon towers are habitable, allow the garrison to fire

Installation:

Ok, this part is oldschool and can sometimes get problematic.

1. Get a Warcraft 2 CD or its Image
2. Install Stratagus
3. Install Wargus using the CD, skip all errors

The versions must be 2.4 for V3A and V4.

4. For V3A: copy contents of the archive over the Wargus game dir.

4. For V4: extract the archive somewhere, copy wargus.exe to the game dir.
5. Run wargus.exe "as Administrator"

Multiplayer note: use VPN software like hamachi, enter IPs manually. Brace yourself - anything may be coming.

NEWS (V4 development)

June 17th. V4B released. Intro sequence added. Mission accomplished. All works on this mod temporarily halted.

May 12th. The forum has been launched for lengthy discussions. Article added on converting old maps to the V4.

May 3rd. Released All-Team Organizer V4A, which is: an alpha, a completely reworked version, pretty exciting to play. You can play Tides of Darkness for Luna or Celestia, up to campaign levels 11 - 12. Nothing else happened - no Apocalypse.

April 28th
Operation Mayday

April 22nd. Map 5 technology tested. Video uploaded. Everything else is basically tuning - the road is open to releasing the alpha.

April 18th. Map 4 technology fully tested. Habitable towers, units firing from transports - map4 technology tested! Tower upgrades will be disabled. UPD: no they won't. Only firing towers will be ponyable, only Watch Towers will have detectors.

April 17th. Hey guys! Check out the gameplay video. Almost all goes well up to map 3. Note: I'm using lots of art and music - every piece will be referred to ingame in credits.

April 11th. The hard part is done. Now I'm fixing stuff. Fixed guards sprites. Succeeded in replacing trees on an original campaign map. All units gained 2x visibility. Looks pretty cool!

April 7th. The hard part is officially over. Not only is the problem of ships solved, but hey guys! I got individual trees! Old wood will no longer be harvestable, so it has to be replaced with individual trees. It was a hard decision, but there's just no way to make 32x32 tiles look like solid trees. Now, every map has to be changed in order to provide this vital resource. I guess the alpha will be out soon enough.

Credits

Most of them go to Urimas and the Gameloft guys who develop their MLP farm game. Most credits are listed ingame.

Step by step installation Guide (forV4C)

Installers Tutorial

1. Insert the Warcraft 2 CD


The hard part is to obtain the original game CD. This mod is not even really a Warcraft 2 mod - it's a Wargus mod. Wargus is the improved version of WC2 made by enthusiasts. To ensure Blizzard is not going to send assassins to hunt them down, the creators of Wargus made their game require the Warcraft 2 CD or image to install. Since your first step is to install Wargus, you'll need a CD or image file of the CD of either Warcraft 2 Tides of Darkness, or Warcraft 2: Battle.net Edition. I only had experience using the latter.

So, how do you get the "Warcraft 2: Battle.Net Edition" image? I hope not via torrents, which is easy, but illegal. Take the legal path instead - respect Blizzard's property rights for this 1995 game.

If you have the image*, which is possibly an .iso file, you need to mount it For that I use DAEMON Tools Lite. Once you have both the image and the program installed, you'll be able to mount the .iso file, by either clicking or right-clicking on it (you'll need to choose a proper option from the menu).

You're now supposed to have the CD mounted. In my case - to drive K:\

* obtained by backing up your original game CD, not via torrents

2. Install Wargus, get the wargus.exe file

Download the mod - version V4C1. Run the Wargus-2.4.exe file found inside.

First time you're asked, enter the path of the mounted image. Like "K:\". The second time you're asked, just leave the field blank. You're now supposed to have Wargus installed to somewhere, like C:\Wargus. Go there and grab wargus.exe

3. Unpack the mod

Unpack the "Wargus + Nightmoon V4c" folder anywhere. Put wargus.exe inside, run it. If something, right-click and "run as Administrator". That's all there is.

4. Patches & Maps

The relevant patch currently is V4C3. It contains the "scripts" folder, so you need to replace the original "scripts" folder from where you installed the game with this one.

To install maps, put the individual files strictly to the maps\ folder.
