CPNBUILD is a command-line utility for building MS Age Of Empires campaign files (.CPN) from scenario files (.SCN). It supports such actions as: adding/replacing scenarios in campaign files, deleting scenarios from campaign files, extracting scenarios from campaign files, listing scenarios contained in campaign files, and changing the versions of scenarios in campaign files. CPNBUILD command-line interface fully supports wildcards, which means that all actions can be performed on multiple campaign and scenario files and will affect only the files matching the specified wildcard arguments.
Compared to the built-in campaign editor, CPNBUILD has a much larger functionality. The campaign editor of the game requires that the scenario files you want to include reside in the SCENARIO folder, otherwise they can't be included or even listed. With the built-in campaign editor the extraction of scenarios from campaigns is not possible. This is especially frustrating if you play the final version and find a very tough or buggy scenario amidst an otherwise interesting campaign - you can't possibly win it and can't advance ahead! No, you can't even delete it from the campaign, since its scenarios are of course not in the SCENARIO folder! CPNBUILD provides a solution to this and similar problems by giving you the opportunity to add, replace, extract, delete and list scenarios to/from campaign files with a short command-line invocation.
