We all know that there is a command that removes the shroud and reveals the map (surface and underground) - OpenCircleFog with the necessary parameters.

Just like to ask if there is one that gives back the shroud?

Usually I reveal the map so as to look for certain map locations like prisons (to get free heroes), refugee camps or astrologer towers.  I don't intend to play revealed map throughout so I would want a command to "regenerate" the shroud, but there is no such thing as "CloseCircleFog".

Anyone who knows pls inform, thanks a lot.

Unfortunately I don't think there's a function for that.

However, with some cheats you can enable/disable the entire Fog of War on the map easily, and also Teleport your hero wherever you want. Of course, if you want to play and have fun you shouldn't use these cheats but they are very useful a lot of times when making tests and such (especially the Teleport one)

First you need to enable the console:
Go to the directory where you installed Heroes 5 TotE. Then enter the profiles folder, and open the autoexec_a2.cfg file with Notepad

Add the following line at the beginning of this file:
setvar dev_console_password = schwinge-des-todes

Now go to your My Documents directory (Documents and Settings\user name\My Documents), enter the My Games\Heroes of Might and Magic V - Tribes of the East\profiles folder. Now enter the folder with your profile name in the game. Open input_a2.cfg with Notepad.

Add the following lines at the beginning of this file:
bind show_console '`'
bind fog_of_war 'CTRL' + 'SHIFT' + 'F'
bind adventure_teleport 'CTRL' + 'SHIFT' + 'T'


Now you activated the console! (you never have to do this again - unless you change your game profile)


The following actions must be made each time you want to cheat:
Launch the game. Open the map or save, and press the key right to the left of your 1 key (the ` or ~ key). Write enable_cheats and press 'Enter'. Now you can use cheats. (hide the console any time by pressing the ~ key again)

Try holding your CTRL and SHIFT keys while pressing F, and you should deactivate the Fog of War on the map. Pressing it again will enable it back.
As for teleporting your hero: select the hero you want to teleport, move the cursor on the place you want him/her to be teleported and then press the T key while holding the CTRL and SHIFT keys. Note that you can't teleport your hero someplace where (s)he can't, e.g. in an unwalkable tile or near an enemy creature or hero.

According to the Cheat Guide the internal name for the hero Tieru is Linaas.  I have tried to use this and it doesn't work but it doesn't give an error either.  So is the above internal name correct?

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any cheat nor script function to modify the Dark Energy... so I think it's impossible.

Not sure if any1 really check this forum anymore, but would like to know what I have done wrong.

I entered the cheat to open the console in the autoexec.cfg - And binded a key to open the console.

When i've done this, and I try to open the game. It just close the game. Like I can't enter the game.

Hope someone got a answer to this question, if you don't understand it fully please reply anyway and I will try to make it clearer.

Thanks, Prick.

Major Problems

Before i explain this i want to let curio know how helpful these forums were when i was on my old computer, in which i didnt have problems, but i can not say the same for my new one. Look, i have read through the entire 24 pages of this, and have found similar problems to the one i am encountering. Each time I try to change the autoexc file it will not let me.It says i need to make sure the path and file name is correct. I am using vista, i tryed using admin powers, unchecked read only, and did the best i could to find the problem, but i had no avail. Please read this soon, as it is becoming frustrating. Oh, btw, i have an unpatched, unmodded version of the game. Thank you for any help i may get.

Edit: check page 23, i have figured out a way to get around the "path is not correct" saving problem and got the console commands working.

I have the same problem as Abowlarice.

I am using Vista, used Notepad, but in terms of differences with him/her, my copy is the Australian version of the game (although I don't think that really makes a difference) and I downloaded the latest 3.1 patch for TOTE.

I wonder why it's so easy for everyone else? lol!

When opening the input file from my documents, there are no problems concerning that. I can save the tilde procedure... but when trying to save into the autoexec_a2 file, it just won't let me. Help?

This is most probably something Vista related, maybe you don't have full access and modify rights in the folder you installed H5.

"swap teams" cheat?

Is there a cheat to switch to another (AI controlled) team?

I'm playing the comp and it's monstrous - I just want to see what it's setup is, whether or not it has the dragon suit, etc.

(The comp has 500 Titans, 1k Ghost Dragons, 1k Archlich, 600 Vampire Lords, 250 Crystal Dragons, and 4k(!) Wraiths!!!  How in the hell did it amass such an army???)

Open the console and write:

@SetPlayerTeam(player, team)

Obviously, replace player with the player ID (from 1 to 8), and team with the team ID. These vary from map to map so I can't tell you which numbers you'd need, you just have to experiment a bit.

Thanks, I never did see that bit of heat code on the main cheat page.  I'll experiment with it.

Saving after editing file

Hi, I'm new and I have read the page on activating the cheat console and Yes I do have the correct spellings, punctuation, FILES, and using notepad. (also read 12pgs of this help forum)(I do know some basic game editing stuff)


Here's the odd problem I've got. After I edited autoexec.cfg file, it does not allow me to save the file. (using just Save not Save As)
This is the error Im getting:

"Cannot create the C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Heroes of Might and Magic
V\profiles\autoexec.cfg file.

Make sure the path and file name are correct."

So I can go no further obviously if I can't enable the console. Oh and btw when I edited the other file in MyDocs, i edited and saved it with no problem.... I would love to know what is the problem, thank you for all your help.
