AoMH Boss Battle Competition 2008: HailToTheOboe

Author File Description
File Details
Version: AoM
by HailToTheOboe

December 13 2008: Updated version added that SHOULD be compatible with titans. Download and play the "Prime for Titans" scenario, which uses the TT trigger loader instead of vanilla.


You are in the shoes of Abramus Prime, a powerful shapeshifting hero on a crusade to save the world from evil. You are accompanied on your quest by four shapeshifting friends.

An evil shapeshifter by the name of Barmakkar has been plaguing the area. His lair is a massive cavern underneath a mountain where he mines materials and manufactures weaponry.

Will you lead Abramus Prime and his friends into the mines to defeat Barmakkar?

3 Cinematics (Introduction, Victory, Defeat) containing lots of special effects

Quoted from "Yeebagooon":

S**t, those effects were so awesome. AND it was made in Vanilla!

and choreographed fight scenes. It is highly recommended that you download the music to go with the cinematics.

The introduction Cinematic is abortable, so if you have to restart, you can abort it immediately by hitting Esc to save the time, unless you want to watch it again.

As a shapeshifter, naturally, you can change shape. During gameplay, you have access to 6 forms, all of them accessible via hotkeys.

Select Prime : 1
Anubite : 2
Manticore : 3
Battle Boar : 4
Colossus : 5
Valkyrie : 6
Frost Giant : 7

Of course, Barmakkar can shapeshift too, so he will be reacting to your changes by changing himself.
Every form has special attacks, advantages and disadvantages against other forms. As you play, you will have to try to figure out which unit counters which.

Here are some screenshots that are just a taste of what you will be experiencing.

Many thanks go to all of the AoM community, especially those whose custom triggers I made heavy use of (invent00r, nottud, Mythic_Freak, pftq, invent00r, Archaeopterix, invent00r, and others who have submitted to the Trigger Request Thread)

Installation instructions are in the readme.txt

CoS_Infurn4tr1x Oboe-anything that works on Vanilla works on the titans(coz the titans is just an expansion to the origional game, so, yeh)

That's what I would have assumed, but since I haven't tested it on TT I wouldn't know for sure.

I also have custom triggers that are "vanilla-ized" versions of AoT triggers under the same name but with different coding, and I don't know if there'd be some kind of conflict with using those in AoT.

It doesn't work on TT.
Shadcamper When i start the scenario up it says "game paused" why is this, and how do i change it.

That is because I'm a fool who forgot to fix the simplest of all things after the last playtest before submitting it. Just hit the Pause/Break key on your keyboard to unpause it.

Heavy Murmillo hey how do you make a shapeshifting unit?
