Posted: April 1, 2011 by Kaemon in April's Fool, Special

EDIT: Some people are telling me they are getting an error link… Dropbox fails sometimes, and seems to fail more with big sized archives… Try again later, or wait to see if Hannibal manages to upload to Gamebanana.

EDIT2: I’m gonna try to upload it aswel to Fireserve and Megaupload. Will take a while…
Also… I love the explosive barrel! XD

EDIT3: APRIL’S FOOL! (Tomorrow some real info! Seriously! SORRY! XD)

Thats it folks! Hannibal made it! We had been really busy testing the map for the past two days and we think that its bug free so far and ready for the servers!
(At least we couldn’t find more bugs on Lan-Test, probably some will appear after playing it in the real online servers).

Minas Tirith's April Fool

On the picture, from left to right: us troling you, you getting troled.

The map itself it’s quite big (223 MBs!) but its full of models, customs textures, sounds, music; and its a really big map itself (in walkable size and details).
However, we are sure that the size its worth it, and Hannibal will try to make as few versions as possible (just fix the bugs) so people don’t have to download it many times…

Right now Hannibal is trying to upload it to Gamebanana, and I will edit this rant with the link as soon as possible; but you know that Gamebanana bugs sometimes, specially when uploading big files.
For the moment you can use our Dropbox download already!

Download from Dropbox: DROPBOX
Download from Gamebanana: Coming soon… (Not really, XD)

We hope you all enjoy the latest map from the creator of Mines of Moria, Mount Doom, Helm’s Deep, Paranoid and Mako Reactor!

Some words from Hannibal:

“Prepare for the end of the journey at the most exciting zombie escape map!”

  13. Luffaren says:

    Nah it’s good, only thing was that i spammed that dropbox link for an eternity >.<
    I also wondered why you and Hanni were offline "online 18 hours ago" xD

  14. Kaemon says:

    Sorry guys! We needed to do this! XD
    Maybe it will also help a little to low the hype about the map… XD

    It’s true that the map is almost done, and yesterday’s new was completly real. But no, Minas Tirith it’s not done yet… But it will be soon (can’t say a release date, and Hannibal is OFF). XD

  15. UNREA1 says:

    You just killed 4200 people desperately waiting for the release by heart attack, I hope you are happy now. XD

  16. We are evil!!!!!!!! Don’t kill us : D! Minas Tirith it’s not done yet, but I worked hard on it (now, i’m paying the hammer time with some university hardwork extra hours), I walked a lot of time in my compilable without leaks. Feels good to put triggers and fix easy things.

  28. Rob - i3D says:

    Not really, most still play there, albeit some of the older players have moved on. Still got one of the most popular ZE in the world, and other servers picking up. Should come back to the forums and say hello πŸ˜‰
