Hi there!

I would like to present You my mod for WarCraft II. It adds few new things including new units, graphics, sounds, music tracks, upgrades and even race. This project is quite big, and now I do not have time to do everything that I wanted to add, but I'd like to show You what I've been able to do :)
At last You have to know that this mod was made by one guy: me. I had to use some graphics that I found on the Internet or found in other games.

Changes at a glance:

- Elven Archers have been replaced by Crossbowmans.
- Unique unit: Lord
- Choosing between Light and Darkness

- Trolls can be upgraded on Berserkers or Axewarriors
- Choosing between Wolf Raiders and Ogres
- Unique units: demons; Netherfly (flyier transport unit) or Abyssal Demon (powerful, skilled, creature)

- Slooooow units but very strength
- Choosing between dwarven Gods: Chlijus or Nordrin
- Unique units: vary according to the chosen God

At News I'll write about Story, How to Install and Quick Start (race tutorial)

If You installed mod successfully and game works :P, click on "Play Demo" and then You will see "Prologue" or "Tutorial".

"Prologue" means normal campaign with missions and story.
This campaign can be played in two difficulty levels: Normal and Veteran. Normal mode isn't hard, but still You have to use Your skills to defeat the enemy. Veteran mode is much more harder and was made for the best RTS players.
Both levels are the same campaign, so if You play as Veteran, passed two missions and it started to be too hard, You can change difficulty and play the rest missions as Normal. To do it, You have to back to the main menu, click on "Play Demo", choose other difficulty and mission. All progress from previous difficulty will be incorporated.

And now something for Polish players:

Mod jest polskiego autorstwa, więc istnieje też polska wersja językowa kampanii oraz misji. Aby spolszczyć mod należy wejść do folderu z grą a następnie w campaigns->demo->pl, skopiować zawartość folderu "pl" i wkleić do folderu "demo" podmieniając odpowiednie pliki.

Mod version is playable. There is still some Stratagus bugs. The biggest problem is with Saving Games (better don't saving). Missions can be played one...

Dzięki za pozytywną opinię :)
Chciałbym ukończyć ten projekt, ale raczej małe są szanse bym zdołam wygospodarować tyle czasu, a tego czasu trzeba dużo by wszystko dopiąć na ostatni guzik. Wiele rzeczy trzeba poprawić (jak np.: zapisanie postępu gry), dopisać, przetestować.
Od daty wrzucenia wersji Demo nic w tym modzie nie robiłem i jeśli mam być szczery to nie będę robił jeśli nie znajdzie się jeden/dwóch chętnych do pomocy. Mam teraz na głowie studia, powinienem pisać pracę inżynierską, także nie narzekam na nudę ;)

I'm afraid that it will be only playable version. I really don't have time to finish it, fix bugs and make all campaigns and fourth race (yes, there was a plans for next race).
I would be really happy if someone would like to continue this mod :)
