'Isandlwana - The Thin Red Line' - A 19th century battle mod (ver 0.2)

Medieval goes Victorian. Well, sort of ... what started as a small attempt to just change some minor things became bigger and bigger and is now a mod around the disastrous Battle of Isandlwana, where an invading British force was annihilated by a Zulu army in 1879.

This mod was developed by Isandlwana, a member of TWC. It is no longer in development but there is a beta with 2 factions and custom battles, and it deserves to be here. Someone may want to continue and reboot the mod one day, who knows?

Hello everyone, I'd like to make a campaign for this mod but I'm having trouble (I made a map that loads in geomod but when I try to start the campaign I get a ctd, the last line in the log points to the descr_sounds_music_types.txt), if anyone has experience importing new custom maps please let me know
Thanks!
