Happy new year to everybody!
I'm proud to finally present the trailer video and screenshots of my first project for BFME2, Legends.

The story:

The Dread Shadowmage, Raselas, has gathered an army to destroy what remains of the ancient Three Wills, and conquer all who oppose him.
New heroes will rise and stand against the forces of darkness, to restore the sanctity of the old and ensure peace to the lands of good.


Play solo or with friends online using three Create-A-Heroes plus three completely new heroes that will join you as your journey progresses.
Complete the side quests you are given to obtain valuable experience and loot, which you can later spend at the shops to buy powerful magical items.
Face enemies you have never seen before and explore a completely new universe, far from the tales of middle earth.

I'm in need of testers! It's to make sure every bug has been squatted and everything flows as good as can be. The test run will consist in an online run (Online on EA's servers or via Hamachi) and a singleplayer run for every player who wants to participate in it.
If you want to help test too just post here :p

This looks really good. I'm looking forward to trying it, it's BFME2 without RotWK, right?

No fuel left for the pilgrims

This looks beautiful! I'd love to test, but I'm afraid I just don't have the time required. Eagerly looking forward to a release however!

I was allowed to test the map, and it's really cool. Everything has been redone to create a RPG style :umad:. And the particle effects in the map are also great. :mellow:
I could go on for another minute like this, but this is simply one of the best maps there is :p.

Yep, it's for BFME 2 :).

Looking into it further I see we have similar plans for the BFME games in creating RPGs using the game.
Map projects and Mapmods count for hosting if they are big enough look at Dre@mer's project for instance.
Looks impressive so far I guess I'll dust off my BFME2 and try this out whenever it's ready.

Thanks everyone for the replies :)
I hope to get the final part of the map ready by tomorrow, and then it's only testing until the final release ;)

Masterbadeend: And you've only tested Part I ;)

BPK: Sent you a PM ;). Hope we can do some good testing of a multiplayer run soon ;)

I clicked on the trailer even after reading your post and was still surprised.

I used to be {AE}Manveru, if that rings a bell.

Well I've got the game, and am used to it.

I really see now what everyone meant by "BFME's SO much better than 2". : (

Still, I guess I'm ready for testing now. Hope to catch you on MSN soon.

I haven't even played the map (it's loading!), but I already have a comment: ;)
The map is to big. I would create a 'mod' which has the data files and not a map ini that's is VERY big. :p
That's why it takes very long to load (I think)

---------------------------------------------------------

Don't know why but it won't load :(

Sure :p

Too bad nobody else can test so we are 3 players :S
(BPK get hamachi working? ;))

Don't know why but it won't load :(

It seems to work fine for everybody else :(
Besides, I wanted to make it map.ini so anyone can play it online without any downloading or installing :)
