i have guestion? how i can chance stats if i cant chance the text what belongs on the stats like

<creature dmg min>34
>creature dmg max>37

and i try chance it, then i hear that ding sound what you hear sometimes in windows word


This is not the thread to ask such question. Create a new thread (or maybe we could have a generic short questions thread...).

Anyway, the .xdb files are "read only" in the .pak archive. You should first remove the "read-only" attribute. A good text editor will allow you to do it, otherwise, do it on the file itself.

Here is a Tutorial for everyone who are wondering how to add full new Creatures without replacing:

Adding Creatures

It was ready for some time, but now I really present it and I tried to explain how to patch the exe file as simple as possible. Note: This is for HoF, it works a little different in TotE so I hope the patching in TotE will soon be uncovered.

By the way am I allowed to post an unprotected exe file that is used in the explaination?

Not really. Do you mean the one in your mod linked at the end? Let's say it's for research, and keep it there.

Explaining what to edit in the exe is not better, by the way, and I think you should remove it. It only works on russian HoF .exe v2.1 anyway, and it will be someplace else in other versions of the file. This edited .exe is in your mod already.
I suggest you explain the theory: that the total number of creatures is hard-coded in the exe, and the game crashes if there is a discrepancy with types.xml. This way, it applies to all versions, without risking being illegal. You can also add how many creatures there are by default in H5/HoF/ToE (it's 180 in ToE - actually 179 but you have to count CREATURE_UNKNOWN=0 in the total).

Well what you say is not 100% true, in HoF the game crashes less easy, it doesn't crash if there are more Creatures in the types.xml the Creature can ony apear on the adv map, in TotE however ifthere are more creatures the game crashes as soon as you load a Map that includes the Creature, but in TotE you also need to patch the editor or the editor will crash if you load a Map including the Creature, CrazyPill is good with a disansambler he can find the offsets this way I allready asked him for the TotE offsets, but you don't want me to post them?

Anyway I'll update the guide asap.

P.S. The exe wich is included in the MOD is Russian as well.

How do you make new textures?

Edit: How to edit building cost: First go into GameMechanics, so into TownBuildingSharedStats and then choose faction. So go into the building you want to change. And then you see thisdragon graveyard edited by me)?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<TownBuildingSharedStats ObjectRecordID="1000051">
<NameFileRef href="/Text/Game/TownBuildings/Necromancy/Dwelling_7/Name.txt"/>
<DescriptionFileRef href="/Text/Game/TownBuildings/Necromancy/Dwelling_7/Description.txt"/>
<Type>TB_DWELLING_7</Type>
<Upgrade>BLD_UPG_1</Upgrade>
<Cost>
<Wood>15</Wood>
<Ore>10</Ore>
<Mercury>10</Mercury>
<Crystal>0</Crystal>
<Sulfur>0</Sulfur>
<Gem>0</Gem>
<Gold>8000</Gold>

</Cost>
<ModObjectName>DragonGraveyrd</ModObjectName>
<dependencies>
<Item href="/GameMechanics/TownBuildingSharedStats/Necromancy/Fort/Castle.xdb#xpointer(/TownBuildingSharedStats)"/>
</dependencies>
<Creature>CREATURE_BONE_DRAGON</Creature>
<DevLevelNeeded>15</DevLevelNeeded>
<UIObjectName>Dwelling_7</UIObjectName>
<UIStackPosition>0</UIStackPosition>
<Icon href="/UI/TownHall/necropolis/128/d7.xdb#xpointer(/Texture)"/>
</TownBuildingSharedStats>

Copy game mechanics into data folder and take away read-only. You see the red writing over there. Change the numbers to get the building to cost like that. ex. [mercury]10[/mercury] to [mercury]1000[/mercury]




Edit spells:Go into game mechanics and ten into spells. Choose the spell class and click on the spell. <base>=starting strenght. <PerPower>=extra strenght per spellpower:
(My modified cotn)
<Item>
<Base>16</Base>
<PerPower>4</PerPower>
</Item>
<Item>
<Base>20</Base>
<PerPower>5</PerPower>
</Item>
<Item>
<Base>40</Base>
<PerPower>8</PerPower>
</Item>
<Item>
<Base>80</Base>
<PerPower>10</PerPower>
</Item>
ps. if it doesn't looks likes this, it's probably becouse you had taken a effect. Only take the name on the spell, not with effect

- Open WinRAR;
- Find the data.pak file using WinRAR;
- Click the "Extract to..." option (second one from the left side, the leftmost one is the book-icon, which is the "Add" option);
- Choose a destination and unpack the files;

When you go to edit a file, make sure to uncheck the "read-only" flag from the file (right-click the file name, select "Properties" from the menu that pops-up and uncheck the "read-only" bit that you can find in the screen that you see).

Come on, it's not rocket science

The new user wulfstan8182 is correctly registered. I received the new user notification, so the smtp server works correctly. Maybe the email is in your spam folder somewhere. Maybe the stored email address is incorrect (I'll send you an HCM to check that).
