SHCPlayer is a game launcher that inject plugins (mods) in Stronghold Crusader game. It works as a background service and automatically injects plugins when it finds a game process. It doens't modify game files so after you close SHCPlayer and restart the game, non modified game version will be launched.

List of plugins:

1) MultiPatch
This plugin patch game to 1.31 version. It fixes some bugs and exploits. Here is the list of fixes:
- detection of invisible units and structures
you can no longer detect invisible enemy units with building preview
- double workers
you can no longer use sleep trick to assign more that one worker to the production
- stone teleport
blocking path to stone quarry no longer teleports stone to ox tether
- baker disappearing
flour absence at the stockpile no longer destroy bakers
- fire watchers stay at 0 popularity
fire watchers no longer stay with you at 0 popularity
- apple orchard size
preview apple orchard size has been changed from 12x12 to 11x11, that is correspond to the size of orchard after you build it
- moat restoring under draw bridge
closing of the draw bridge no longer restores moat under it
- tunneler selection using bind keys
you can no longer select tunneler with bind keys after you send him to dig tunnel

Notice: version 1.31 isn't compatible with other game versions, even with 1.3. It means that you can't play mulptiplayer matches vs player who doesn't use SHCPlayer.

2) AIVEditor
This plugin was supporsed to be an ingame castle editor for AI, but I abandoned this idea and stoped just on AI castle viewer. Go to "Custom Scenarios/Vilalge Editor" to select AI castle to view. While in edit mode press Numpad+/Numpad- to increase/decrease AI build step

3) Replay
This plugin records every skirmish game you play as a replay and save it to path_to_documets\Stronghold Crusader\Replays directory. Then you can play those replay at "Custom Scenarios/Play Replay" menu. While in replay mode Numpad+/Numpad- changes game speed up to 1000. You can share your replays with each other, but for nonstandart maps you need to share map file as well, since replay doesn't store map information.
This plugins records only skirmish games, both singleplayer and multiplayer. History mission, custom scenarios and castle buildes aren't supported.

4) Hotkey
This plugin add configurable hotkeys in the game. Under [Hotkey] section in Config.ini file there is a list of all available game actions and correcponding hotkeys. Some actions may override another. Specific actions (i.e. buy unit) has more priority than global (i.e. select granary), so you can assign same key for them. This plugin works only in skirmish match.

5) AdvancedMap
This plugin makes minimap more convenient to use. Plugin disables minimap scrolling and downscales the image so it fit entire area. You can adjust landscape color and unit size and disable civilians on minimap in config file.


Requirements:
Stronghold Crusader HD v1.3 (Extreme isn't supported)
.NET Framework 4.5 - Microsoft.com
Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 - Microsoft.com

Wow! this is just what I was looking for, also does it fix the ox tether blocking the AI gatehouse problem? maybe by somehow tagging ox tether as a military building so it cannot be placed near enemy buildings?

No, patch doesn't fix this issue, but I thought about it. The thing is such blocking is intentional player action and if player don't want to ruin AI economy, he can just avoid this trick. Player don't need a patch to play fair game.

OK, i just tried to download again, it gave me an empty .zip folder once again, and a size of 0 bytes.
Any ideas why it does that for me? that is SHCPlayer v6. v5 comes as a .rar which seems to be fine.

Hello
Is there any chance to get the offsets/patterns for the multiplayer fixes to patch the exe file directly ? (Or to get the patched exe file)

Would like to use it without extra files/loader, if possible.

No. It mostly fixes exploits that may adversely affect multiplayer matches.
