Heroes 3 - Editing heroes in memory

Heroes of Might & Magic 3 + Addons (Heroes 3 Complete) & Heroes Chronicles

Data for memory editing e.g. using Winhex (or for creating a trainer)

The list is incomplete, since I never tried to find the move points, the mana, luck or morale values.

Resources: Their values start exactly 3 lines above the player name
  (or "_omputer", "Player" or the current player colour,
          depending on the game version i.e. H3, expansion or
          Chronicles, can't remember which was which)

  1st entry: wood, after that 5 times 4 Bytes for the other
          resources, the 6th entry is gold

Charakter values (primary stats): 4 lines + 1 Byte above 1st letter of first hero's name
(1 Byte each)
The highest value that can be displayed is 99.

Spells: They're stored right in front of the character values.
00 = unknown, 01 = known
Note that some spells (all level 5 ones?) don't instantly
       appear after editing them as known, you'll see this when you
       try to edit the hero again, there'll be some 00 Bytes among
       the rows of 01 Bytes.

Experience: 3 lines minus 2 Bytes below 1st letter of the hero's name (4 Bytes)

Units: 7 times 4 Bytes beginning 4 lines below experience = Unit type
(for code list, see below)

      7 times 4 Bytes immediately after 7th unit type = amount of
        units (don't put in numbers that are too high, they'll turn
        into negative)

Skills: following right after unit numbers; 00 = not available, 03 = expert
(1 Byte = 1 skill)
Skills that weren't present before editing don't get an icon,
       but their effect will be there. I'm not sure whether this
       works with wisdom or artillery, so feel free to try it
       yourself.

The skills appear in the following order after the 4th Byte of the 7th unit number:

01 Pathfinding
02 Archery
03 Logistics
04 Scouting
05 Diplomacy
06 Navigation
07 Leadership
08 Wisdom
09 Mysticism
10 Luck
11 Ballistics
12 Eagle Eye
13 Necromancy
14 Estates
15 Fire Magic
16 Air Magic
17 Water Magic
18 Earth Magic
19 Scholar
20 Tactics
21 Artillery
22 Learning
23 Offense
24 Armourer
25 Intelligence
26 Sorcery
27 Resistance
28 First Aid

Artefacts can be added, too (for code list, see below):

A little bit below the skill values there is a large block of FFFF... The series is interrupted by a 03000000 value. That's the catapult which every hero has. Each artefact is stored in 8 Bytes, only the first 4 are used, though, the latter 4 must be FFFFFFFF. If you want to add an artefact, just count 8 F's after the 03000000 artefact, and you can add any artefact to your backpack. Don't forget to actually equip them after editing.
Of course you could also try to find the artefact slots on the paper doll, but IMO that's too much work and might lead to crashes in case you put the wrong artefact in the wrong slot. The slots are somewhere in front of the catapult.

Appendix:

There is a list of hex values for unit type and for artefacts somewhere (gamefaq.org most likely), so the following lists including the comments are copied from that document:

You're welcome.
It's been quite a while since I played HOMM 3, but I wanted to make sure the list doesn't get lost completely.

I don't know if you are still using this forum but this info is so freaken useful. For a long time, having been offered eagle eye and learning whenever my heroes level up frustrates me to no end, but with a memory editor and knowing what to look for, that is no more.

Being a player that loves their spells way too much, I can't bare to play the campaign "Birth of a barbarian" where freaken Yog just refuses to pick up a spellbook. Being frustrated again reminded me of this post and how you can play god with your heroes. Although I was very disappointed to find that you didn't include the value for a spellbook, I had to experiment a whole bunch because there is no way I can play without spells (to be fair the game is called Heroes of Might and MAGIC.) I was wondering what I would get if I put all zeros in for an artifact, and low and behold, I tabbed back into the game and found a spellbook in my backpack (which is kinda amusing since the thing is impossible to unequipe,) that had me laughing for a good few minutes. Just wanted to reply and let you know that 00000000 is spellbook, useful to know when you don't feel like paying for one, or when your hero's name is Yog (take that Yog, you WILL learn magic whether you like it or not.)

Yes, it's interesting that the Spellbook is indeed an artifact like any other. I actually add a spellbook temporarily as a very dirty hack to make the Hero Trade screen refresh after doing a Hero Swap (swapping all artifacts between two heroes) in HDE Mod: code.

On a related note you will notice if you play around editing heroes that all slots, including the Spellbook and Warmachine slots, can hold any artifact.

@joerginger. I'm using your list and use it on cheat engine, published on my blog. If you find it is annoying, then I'll delete it. Thank you.

I doubt joerginger will mind . His last post on these forums is from february 2007, so that has been a while .

The format detailed above is also the format used inside savegames, by the way, which may allow for easier editing. At least, I find it more convenient to do it offline instead of in memory.

The savegames are all simply zipped archives, so you can open them with something like WinRar and then unzip them. Edit them with a hex editor and you have the various parts as listed in joelgringer's post.

After making the changes you desire, be sure to zip them using 7zip, giving the file a proper extension (.cgm for campaign saves, .gm1 for single player games) instead of the .zip extension. Don't use WinRar for this, it uses a different compression method! Place it in the same folder as your other savegames. My advice would be to give the file a different name, too, so as to not overwrite your original savegame. If you somehow botched the hex editing (not that it ever happened to me *whistles* ), you at least still have the original.

Edit: For personal use, I made a mapping of the various parts of the savegame, especially the Hero section. I'll see about detailing it once I am home.

Hero of Order

Within Heroes savegames, each Hero will be listed, even Heroes that aren't even available on a given map. The number of bytes te describe each Hero is 1094 and most of these will be taken up by Artifacts.

If a savegame is of a campaign game with carryover Heroes from previous maps, the savegame will contain those carryover Heroes too in a separate section - this means it's possible to have two Hero descriptions within the savegame: the first one is as the Hero has developed up until the start of that particular map, the other as the Hero evolves during that map. The reason to retain those is for when you restart the map later on, or for Heroes that aren't used in that map but rather saved for a later map in the same campaign.

Since the Hero name is the most clearly visible and therefore most easily found within a savegame, I use the first character of a Hero's name as the offset from which to find all the other relevant values. In short (all values are in Little Endian, which means the least significant byte is the first one on the left, increasing in value by a factor of 256 for each next position):


Offsets from    Data type
first letter
of Hero name
-195 .. -194    X coordinate of hero (0 is topleft corner)
-193 .. -192    Y coordinate of hero (0 is topleft corner)
-191            Z coordinate of Hero (0 = surface, 1 = subterranean)
-190 .. -160    ? Unknown, Hero specifics? Portrait, angle, looks?
-159 .. -151    ? Seems to govern Hero specifics; 158 is the Class
-150 .. -147    X coordinate of destination marker)
-146 .. -143    Y coordinate of destination marker
-142 .. -139    ? Seems to depend on level, 0 at lvl 1, 6 at lvl 6 and 20 at lvl 23, all on 3rd byte
-138 .. -135    Maximum movement points
-134 .. -131    Current movement points remaining
-130 .. -127    Experience
-126 .. -123    Number of skill slots shown on the Hero sheet (value from 00 00 00 00 to 08 00 00 00)
-122 .. -121    Mana points
-120            Hero's level
-119 .. -57     ? Temporary buffs ?
-56  .. -29     Creature ID (see Creature ID table; see note 1)
-28  .. -1      Creature amounts (see note 2)
+0   .. +12     Hero name
+13  .. +40     Skill level (see Skill ID table, see note 3)
+41  .. +68     Skill slot on sheet (see note 4)
+69  .. +72     Primary skills (Attack, Defense, Spell Power, Knowledge, in that order - also includes Artifact boni)
+73  .. +212    Spells (see note 5)
+213 .. +876    Artifacts carried (see note 6)


Note 1: This is a range of 7x 4 bytes. Each set of 4 bytes holds the ID of the creature carried by the Hero, in the order as shown on the Hero sheet from left to right. Empty spots have a value of FF FF FF FF, while when there's a creature in the spot, it will show as XX 00 00 00, where XX is the Creature ID.

Note 2: This is a range of 7x 4 bytes as well, corresponding to the same list as under note 1. It holds the total number of creatures for the corresponding position.

Note 3: These 28 bytes each signify one particular skill, depending on the position. So the very first byte in the string is the first skill, the second byte is the second skill, etc ... all the way up to the 28th skill. The skill level has a range of 00 (unskilled) to 03 (Expert level). See the respective skills down below in the Skill table. Note that a Hero could potentially be skilled to Expert level in ALL 28 skills, by just setting these all to 03. They don't need to be shown on the Hero sheet in order to be effective.

Note 4: This string of 28 bytes has a value running from 00 through 08 and has the same follow up order for the skill positions mentioned under note 3. The value indicates where the skill is shown on the Hero sheet, which shows two columns of 4 skill rows each. The topleft position is 1, the top right is 2, etc ... with the bottom right being position 8. The values of 01 through 08 have to be unique within this 28 byte string, since each slot on the Hero sheet can only carry one skill. Keep in mind that the Hero also has an overall number governing how many skills will be shown on the Hero sheet, see the byte at offset -126 ... -123.

Note 5: The Spell listing consists of two strings of 70 bytes each. Each position details one specific spell, just as with the skills detailed under note 3 and 4. See the Spell Table for which spell is at which position. Both 70-byte strings have a value of either 00 or 01 at each byte. The first 70 byte string determines whether the Hero has the specific spell written in his spellbook. The second 70 byte string determines whether the Hero has the spell available in his spellbook - as a spell could be present due to carrying an Artifact (Tome of - Magic, Spell Scroll, Artifact). Logically, spells that are at 01 in the first 70 byte string also have a 01 at the second string .

Note 6: Artifacts carried are 83 strings of 8 bytes each. The first 4 of these 8 bytes are the Artifact ID. See the Artifact ID table for which one is which. The next 4 bytes of those 8 are only used for Spell Scrolls, in which case it lists the Spell ID of the scroll. Otherwise, these 4 bytes have the value FF FF FF FF. The order of these 8 bytes also determines where on the Hero the artifact is shown. Listing those here (and note that some slots are special in that they can only carry one specific artifact, namely the Catapult, First Aid Tent, Ammo Cart, Ballista and Spell Book slots) :

If you wish to know which spells are contained within the Mage Guild of a given Town but don't feel like building up the Town to the max, you can also find that information within the save game.

Locate the Town Name and taking the first letter as position 0, you can find the Mage Guild spells at these offsets:

+125 .. +148 Tier 1 Mage Guild spells
+149 .. +172 Tier 2 Mage Guild spells
+173 .. +196 Tier 3 Mage Guild spells
+197 .. +220 Tier 4 Mage Guild spells
+221 .. +228 Tier 5 Mage Guild spells


The first four Tiers consist of 6 strings of 4 bytes each, each holding a Spell ID (see the Spell ID table above). Although higher Tiers have ever fewer spells, in the save game they are all 6 slots in size, except Tier 5, which is only 8 bytes long and hence can only contain 2 spells.

Only Tower can benefit from 6 spells are Tier 1, with the Library, all the other Towns are restricted to 5 spells at most. Still, all Towns have the 6th spell listed. Note that the spell slots unavailable to any Town only contain garbage bytes (often 00 00 00 00, but I've also seen other garbage bytes). For instance, the 6th spell slot at Tier 2 and the 5th and 6th spell slot are unavailable for any Town and only contain garbage. They're still there within the savegame file, though. At the same time, even for Towns without a Library (i.e. other than Tower), a valid spell is listed in the slot that can only be accessed with a Library.

Also, for Towns that cap off at a Tier lower than 5 (Stronghold, Fortress and Castle), the unused Tiers contain FF FF FF FF for all spells at those unavailable Tiers.

Good posts, Maurice.

Regarding the hero struct, it is documented in a few places publically online, for example my own here and another more complete one here. It is the same one used in-memory when the game is running.

The spell IDs etc listed are the same in .h3m maps for anyone wondering.

Nice links. I've examined them a bit and I do notice similar elements - but also that their follow up order in memory seems different? For instance, I see the Hero name actually preceding destination coordinates. I must say I'm a bit surprised by that, I always assumed the savegames were just memory dumps, but it seems they're getting structured element by element before being written to disk.

I doubt joerginger will mind . His last post on these forums is from february 2007, so that has been a while .

The format detailed above is also the format used inside savegames, by the way, which may allow for easier editing. At least, I find it more convenient to do it offline instead of in memory.

The savegames are all simply zipped archives, so you can open them with something like WinRar and then unzip them. Edit them with a hex editor and you have the various parts as listed in joelgringer's post.

After making the changes you desire, be sure to zip them using 7zip, giving the file a proper extension (.cgm for campaign saves, .gm1 for single player games) instead of the .zip extension. Don't use WinRar for this, it uses a different compression method! Place it in the same folder as your other savegames. My advice would be to give the file a different name, too, so as to not overwrite your original savegame. If you somehow botched the hex editing (not that it ever happened to me *whistles* ), you at least still have the original.

Edit: For personal use, I made a mapping of the various parts of the savegame, especially the Hero section. I'll see about detailing it once I am home.


Well, thanks Maurice. And your lists is more awesome. I've tried gzip before. And then 7zip. But it needs save and reload. So I give it a try on cheat engine.

But this blog is the one that made me trying the same thing on heroes 3.
