I haven't downloaded any of your scenarios, and I'll tell you why - your over-the-top, hyperbolic, badly-spelt descriptions are enough to put me off. Not to mention the fact that these 'huge, detailed scenarios' are churned out at an incredibly rate of knots, and seem to bear little or no resemblence to the actual history: for example, the British never occupied France during the Napoleonic Wars. It was, in fact, very nearly the other way around.

You do realize that Napoleon had the greatest army in all of Europe and it took the combined forces of Prussia, England, and Russia to bring him down at Waterloo. It was hardly the French who were in distress.
(Insert Playability analysis here)
Really envolving game ,you start your aventures with a few french units ,then you go village by village,in some the citizens enrole to your army,in others you have to release french prisoners ,all in upgrading scale,from less to more.
(Insert Balance analysis here)perfect or almost.the difficulty is gradually increased as well the size of the battles and complexity of the srategie
(Insert Creativity analysis here)really original it reminds me from some movie I saw.
Map Design: 4
(Insert Map Design analysis here)very original detailed small villages,farm villages,portcitys,imperial forts,the land, I did like it
(Insert Story/Instructions analysis here)
Are good .But just like they appear at the begining dont look so nice
Additional Comments:well a game really to play and enjoy realistic imperial battles in a fiction history of a invasion of france by the british.I am gonna become a fan of jorgias and his big scenarios.I don't mind his english spelling I understand he is not english speaker(neither I am) something some guys should respect ,but it is perfectly understandable so more than enough.

I e-mailed Park on Jorgias. Hopefully he'll do something.
After the way he commented his own scenario as great, I also asked for an IP address comparison.
To Jorgias: Please don't double-post files on top of everything else. Your blatant disrespect of any and all written and unwritten rules and guidelines at the Centre is annoying enough as it is.
This is a nice job for beginners. I was first confused, which units may be used or not, but after a short look around, i found some playable units in the south-west. The followup is a runaround in given line, collecting some more units, which are simply frozen before you arrive, no real surprises, but nice waste of time. If you like an easy game for half an hour, this one is okay.
The mix of units is well done. Historically a joke, but fair enough for a relaxed gaming. Maybe, if the author does some more scenarios like this, he can combine them to be a campaign, supporting different skill levels. Making it a bit harder and more tricky to play would be nice. The french troops outnumbers the british extremely. But as i mentioned, fair enough for beginners.
It is just a line to walk thru. Cliffs are used, to stop the french break thru the forests. No surprises, but solid work.
Map Design: 4
The author definetely spended some hours by creating this map. It really looks like hard work. The forest is a nice mix, the landscape uses lots of textures. But: Next time the author should use unpassable fields instead of cliffs to stop the french moving thru forests.
The 'full instructions' are a joke. Okay, i do have problems with my bad english, too. But these 'instructions' are really funny. Because of the extrem bad english, i assume, the author is an American ;-)
I do not know, why the author announced this as being the best game ever made. And i do not know, why the comments above are so extremly angry. This is just a solid beginners job, nice gameplay for other beginners. That's okay and enough.
This is simply another "fight your way down a winding path with an army big enough to defead the enemy"-style Fixed Force scenario that we've seen way too many of for Age of Empires II.
Napoleon has apparently somehow lost the war against the British, or maybe never made it to a commanding position in the first place. Either way, France is occupied by British forces and most French military assets have been captured by the British. What exactly is the reason for why France is occupied is not revealed to us, and in my opinion, it seems the author didn't know France was not occupied at that time in the first place.
So you start within a fortress with a group of citizens and a handfull of various military units. Several towns are revealed around the map, and your objective are to go to them, defeat the British forces overlooking them, and free your French comrades. The process is repeated through a long that winds in tight turns through the whole large map, before you're finally pitted against a British fort in the north. Anyone -including my grandmother (who is, with deep respect void of computer knowledge) and my 11-year old brother- could make a scenario like his.
The English in the scenario is horrible. For example, the English are reffered to as "engleses". There is hardly any *C*apitalization of the first letter in first words, and the spelling is incoherent at best.
The scenario works, I'll put it that simple. You have a variety of units, the English doesn't. Your armies, though, are about the same size. All in all, the scenario is too easy.
We've seen this before. Way too many times before. There's nothing new about this scenario at all.
The "alternate history" setting is interesting, but I suspect this is more of a cover-up for the author's faulty belief that France was occupied by the English at the time (Jorgias himself claims you are "living the history").
Map Design: 1
There is no eye-candy in this map at all. Sure, there are a few haypiles, but that's about it. Terrain is varied, but that doesn't make for a rating of 2. There are several areas in the map that are completely blank, such as outside the final English fortress. I don't see a single way this scenario map could score a "two".
Instructions in this scenario are sparse, but fills you in on the scenario. More background information, such as the names of the towns and characters would be nice, though.
As a side note, it doesn't have the mandatory disclaimer line required by the Empires License Agreement as part of its description.
Hardly any that haven't already been put into countless of reviews of countless of similar scenarios (go to Age of Kings Heaven and search for "FF"/"RPG" scenarios with a rating of ">3"). We don't need any more scenarios like this. Oh, and just to put things straight, we don't need scenarios with 2000 units versus 2000 units either. Just in case someone considered making one, that is.
PS: Big Ulrich, very funny. But Jorgias is Latin, Spanish, or Portugese;). And your English doesn't exactly rule either. I'll stop now, though, before you question my German and I make a fool of myself replying.. -Middie

To anybody who watch these comments,like they can see that they are very diferent.I recomend to just download the campaign and scenarios of Big Ulrich(Hans Muller) and the semiscenario Ship Deck Template of Midgard Eagle then they can see who really is worth to believe.
About my English sorry ,yes I am spanish,I make my scenarios for myself and enough that I translate them (badly ,but understandable) so other people can also play them.
It seems that some people confuse scenario with campaign.If i want to play a simple scenario,small i just play a random map of empires,where i can also adjust the difficulty to a very high one.
If i want to play one with lots of instructions and complicated history then i play a campaign.
So if i make an a scenario is to make something that empires doesn't give to me . a huge scenario with lots of details,and where i can have macrobattles.
About self rating Middgard was right so i will not do it anymore,so i hope that he does the same and avoids to rate my scenarios anymore(unless he rates leaving out personal feelings).
PD.there was a rate of a guy to my II world war scenario.The one who had to oveclock his graphic card.Well that's was a real one not of mine.SO i think that more than removing attending at rates coming from the same I.P.The administrator has just removed any high rate to my scenarios.WHat i find that breaks the neutrality that the administrator should have.
Also i think that some very offensive,(into the personal comments)i have received should also be removed to keep clean and healthy these forums or comments.Comment,rate,technically and always with respect.
I feel obliged to say something to my defense.
"To anybody who watch these comments,like they can see that they are very diferent.I recomend to just download the campaign and scenarios of Big Ulrich(Hans Muller) and the semi-scenario Ship Deck Template of Midgard Eagle then they can see who really is worth to believe."
Thank you. I really appreciate your detailed review of my template and the faults you found in it.
Oh, and just to underline: It's a 'template', not a semi-'scenario'. And I dare you to do a better job.
I'll leave it at that. I'll take any further issues with Jorgias to e-mail.
To Jorgias: Here's a hint on how to fix your English:
1) Go to the instructions window in the editor.
2) Type a file name and hit "Export".
3) The text file will be in your Scenarios folder. Open it with Word and do a spell check.
4)Repeat 1 and 2, but Import instead of Exporting.
There you go.

Or you can use a site like http://www.freetranslations.com and do all your translating directly from Spanish. Granted it wont be exact, but it'll be easier to understand when you are trying to translate it yourself.
