Update: Replaced the original PKZIP-compatible file (DOS 8.3 names) with WinRAR file (long filenames, XP-Compatible). Actual content remains the same.
Just like to comment that all the names were shortened by the zipping...

Yeah, seems you have used a really old zipping program...

Update zip file. Sorry, for maximum portability I used Info-Zip with a set of compatibility switches that were a tad too aggressive. Hopefully the 7-Zip format will not give anyone any problems. :)

At Magog's suggestion, updated (again) with a WinRAR created version. This one will work with XP's built-in (it does in a Virtual Machine).

Review of The Experiment.
I feel that this map is exceptionally limited by there being three usable cities on the map. There are only 5, but two are in the shadow, and without shadow walking, mana or the troops to get there, then these will not be used. Thus on the surface you have one town each and the tower in the middle. The one to take the tower and rebuild it surely gets the advantage. Either way, it is a one dimensional map (sorry Albaron!) - unless of course someone tells me what I am missing.
