~ QUESTIONS TOPIC AND FAQ - Temple Of Ashan ~

Well, as several of you have noticed, I have had the honor of being appointed the new member to help with Moderating this forum. My first official action here will be to make this Questions Topic.

All minor questions and calls for help with trouble-shooting should be posted here.

New threads with minor questions will be locked with refference to this topic.

More general questions and calls for discussions will of course be accepted in their own threads. I hope you will all accept this.




FAQ - Freequently Asked Questions - Temple of Ashan

Here is a list of questions freequently asked in the community. Feel free to message me if there are other simple questions, you feel should be added.


1. How do a split a group of creatures?
You do this by pressing and holding the SHIFT button on your keyboard, selecting the troop and then dragging it into an empty slot. Notice, that you can even use this option in the ATB bar during the tactics phase.

2. How do I get a group of archers to move and make a melee attack instead of a ranged attack?
You do this by pressing and holding the CONTROL button on your keyboard, and then target the desired stack. This approach also works for Blood Maidens and Furys, if you want them not to return to start position after striking.

3. Where do I find my save files?
Your save files are located in the follwing folder: Documents/My Games/Heroes of Might and Magic V/Profiles/[Your profile]/Saves.

4. Where can I download other save files, trainers, and other tweaks?
Check out this site, which according to Vlaad should have the desired contents.

5. Where do I find help with the different campaigns?
Currently, the best place to look for help with the campaigns would be  Campaign Walkthroughs. Each campaign has its own thread, and you will find them here: Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, Dungeon, Sylvan and Academy.

6. Why, sometimes during game, suddenly my income of gold is decreased - is this a bug?
No, this is not a bug, this would be because you are in a "week of the festivals" which reduces gold production of the towns.

7. How do I acquire the Ultimate level of the Racial skill with my hero?
The Ultimate level of the racial skills can only be obtained through equipment of the Pendant of Mastery, a Relic artifact that you might find on the map or buy at the sellers.

8. How do I get the Ultimate Ability of my class?
The Skill Wheels (courtesy of Aurelain at Celestial Heavens) is a great tool to easily find the path to the Ultimate Ability.

9. How does the Ranger abilities Imbue Arrow and Imbue Ballista work?
You can read about this in the usermade manual, but I have inserted a very memorable post by Vlaad on this topic below this FAQ.

10. What is "Creeping" and "Rushing" in Heroes 5?
Creeping refers to the early stage of the game where you kill neutrals to flag mines and collect resources. Rushing refers to a strategy, where you rush in to encounter your enemy (hopefully) before he is ready for a deciding battle.

11. How do I play online at ubi.com - what is the online key?
Look at the box your game came in, there should be a piece of paper within. There you'll find your registration code = online key.

12. Are there other places to play online, and how do I get started? How does hamachi work?
Many players play online through the Tournament Of Honor homepage. To get started, read this Guide to start playing TOH or visit the Tournament Of Honor forum of this community.
Where hamachi is concerned just install the version indicated in the above link, the rest is easy. You create a network and give your opponent the password to join, keep in mind that if you don't have the same version you may not be able to see the other's game or it may cause a desync.

13. Why does the game send encrypted data to Ubisoft.com?
This is a feature installed by Ubisoft to collect data on the game. This is not because your game or computer is corrupted. Read more here.

14. How do I make a screenshot from the game?
You press the Print Screen button at the moment you want to capture, and the game saves the image in the programs/Heroes of Might and Magic V/Screenshots folder. Note: If you press ctrl+I before taking the shot, the game will hide the interface. Same command brings it back again.

15. How do I add a picture to my post?
To add a picture, you need to have the picture available online on a server. If you haven't got your own server, upload it to a free picture hosting site like photobucket.com. To add a picture to the post, either: a) click on the picture icon in the kookabar to the left of the message box (the one that looks like this: ) and add the picture URL address into the box that pop's up; or b) copy the IMG code directly from the hosting site and add it into the post. It looks complicated, but once you've tried it one or two times, it's really simple. The result in the text code should look like this:
[ IMG ]http://picture.address[ /IMG ] (without spaces in brackets)

16. How do I make a hotlink to another page in my post?
To add a hotlink (a link, you can press and follow), either: a) click on the hotlink icon in the kookabar to the left of the message box (the one that looks like this: ) and then add the target page URL address (web address, copied from address line in top of browser) in the first pop up box and click OK, then in the second pop up box write the text you want to have displayed where the link is in the final post and then click OK; or b) simply insert the target page address surrounded by [ URL] brackets, like this: [ URL ]www.link.target[ /URL] (without spaces in brackets)

17. Where do I find H5 artwork?
You can check here, however some links are broken.

18. Where can I download H5 maps?
You could check maps4heroes and the ToH map map page.

19. What is atb value and what initiative? How do they work?
Atb is the place of the units in the atb(active time battle) bar. Initiative is how often the units will appear in that bar or if you prefer how often they act. When the unit reaches the leftmost side of the atb bar his atb value is reset and will move from right to left again until it gets to act again. Initiative determines how fast the bar will fill - a squire(8 init) will take double time than a fury(16) would.

20. I have some funny screenshots to share, where should I post them?
This would be the place.

21. What is the patch order and how many do we have so far?
There are 1.4->1.41->1.5->1.6 for the original and 2.1 for HoF. Nothing on tribes yet. List of patches here.

22. Can I play the maps or campaigns from H5 original and HoF in Tribes of the East?
Sure, it's all here.

23. Any multiplayer maps you would recommend?
Certainly not ubi's, try ToH. In no particular order: The Giants(!), MasterMind(!), Rat Race(!), The Abysmal(!), SideKick, Ability, Dragon Hill, School of Sorcery(!), Master of Disguise. People who like complicated epic maps may enjoy battlezone, hourglass, Twilight World(!) or genesis. For short games try Dragon's Cape, Heritage of Deleb(!).
Those with exclamation mark are favourites of mine

24. How do I watch replays?
They must be put in their respective Replays folder whose default path is My Documents\My Games\Heroes of Might and Magic V - Tribes of the East\Profiles\Username\Replays. If the folder does not exist then create one and name it accordingly. Then start H5 and select replays from the options.

25. Why does my game crash when I try to watch a replay?
That means that the one who recorded the replay was using Zenithale's arena mod. Get the plus version, place it in the UserMODs folder found in the game directory and the replay will play normally. Just a reminder, you have to restart the game for it to work.

26: Where can I download some replays?
Unfortunately hosting sites remove uploaded replays after some time so a lot of replays are lost. However many people are keeping a replay collection so you could simply ask, may also want to check this thread though it is not as active anymore. SKPRIMUS had immortalized some of his favourites here.

27. Where can I find an 3.1 version of the manual?
Here.

28. Can I alter the adventure map camera parameters?

It is possible to alter the camera and set it to parameters you prefer.

Open up the HMM5profilesautoexec.cfg in a text editor such as notepad.

Look up these lines:

//For transparanet interface
missioncameralimits 50 10 70 -55 -30 0 0
missioncamerasoftlimits 50 11 69 -53 -32 0 0

and replace them with these lines:

//For transparanet interface
mission_camera_limits 50 10 70 -55 -5 0 0
mission_camera_softlimits 50 11 69 -53 -5 0 0

Here is the page I found this at although the numbers above are mine since those on the page were way too much for me. Each user can tweak them to their own preference.

http://www.megagames.com/cheats/heroes-might-and-magic-5

As with all such tweaks make a backup of the original file before altering it.


As always, if you have comments, suggestions, or other feedback, use the feedback thread, or send an Instant Message to one of the Moderators.

Well, congrats with the duty as moderator Alcibiades

This is just what we need to make keep the less important threads from flooding the forum.

I had a small question myself regarding graphics:
When I upload my pictures to Photobucket (for instance), I'll get a webpage with the image on, but for uploading for instance a screenshot to a mail, what is the best way to approach?

Regards,

Thank you.

About the screenshots/images: I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are asking. If you are sending an image by e-mail, normally, you will have the option to attach the image directly form your harddrive to the e-mail, right? Or am I misunderstanding what you are asking?

Well, I mean just to insert a picture in a post. You get a link and have to put in the URL for the picture. That means you'll have to have uploaded it on a server before putting it out or?

I am used to be able to upload pictures directly from my hard-drive.

Or am I wrong here?

You are right. The HC server does not provide space for pictures of the users, so you can't upload it here. Instead you need to upload it at some other server and then use the link that you get there and insert it in your post with [ img ]link[ img ] (leave the whitespaces)

@alcibiades
Maybe you should add a question about uploading pictures to the FAQ (with a more detailed answer)

Hey Phinex, this thread is for members to place their questions and ask for help, not for me to give you questions, like the quiz. However, they were in fact excellent questions back then, and you could suggest TDL to use such ideas for the Weekly Quiz.

Add at the question or how do I get a group of Blood Maidens/Furies to not return to their starting place after striking the enemy?

It's the same stuff with CTRL

Alc, you can fight spam as much as you want, but it'll always be around... Just like cockroaches and republicans...
You remind me of those cops that go to the service all lightened up and ready to do their duty etc but in time realise it's way easier to just eat donuts...
You see, even this message is spam, and I'm not even a spammer... It's in all of us... You're a good mod and have a solid strategy but I really think there's no use in trying to fix this place. That's what makes it so fun

I know there will always be spam, and a bit of spam is fine to spice things up. However, you might have noticed that I'm doing forum cleaning at the moment, and I tell you that there are a lot of useless threads back there!

I know there will always be newcomers, that just make a thread for their question without using this, but I also know from other fora that you can make the questions topic a routine that will work for all the established members, which will still take a lot of pressure off the forum.

I know I've been very active with closing threads these last days, but I'm trying to be very visible about this right now, so that hopefully it will get through. In time, I hope this will change - otherwise, I might just abandon the project. But I think it's worth a try at least - after all, I'm the one who'll have to do the cleaning afterwards.

Quick question-

When playing sylvan and using imbued rain of arrows with a AoE spell (Meteor Shower), do creatures who overlap in the AoE area get double damage?  For example, say a stack of druids and a stack of master hunters are both on the favored enemy list and both standing right next to each other.  The imbued rain of arrow's would make the master hunter's meteor shower hit the druids and the druids meteor shower hit the master hunters.  So do they both receive damage from both spells?

You can only imbue an arrow with a single target spell, i.e. AoE spells like Meteor Shower won't work.

Wait a second, didn't you say...

Quote:
When you use Imbue Arrow, you can imbue only the spells that target a single stack or a limited area. Thus you can imbue Lightning or Meteor Shower, but not Mass Slow or Armageddon.

Now I'm confused.  Please explain.

Sorry, you are indeed right, my bad: You can use only spells that target single creatures or limited areas. I was a bit quick in my reply there, then.

I would assume that creatures in overlaping regions receive multiple damage, yes, but I don't know for sure. Sorry for the confusion.

EDIT > I would even go as far as saying that I'm positive they will take damage multiple times. From a game mechanical point of view, what Rain of Imbued Arrows does is target the chosen spell on each favored enemy. Spells are cast completely as normal, and I'm therefore positive that the units will take damage from each (unless they resist). Still, someone please comfirm this.

About multiplayer for HoF: I try to connect but get prompted for an online key which I can't find. I have registred, but can't find any code. Where can it be.

Also. I have never tried dual mode. How to play this?

Yes, it works like you said. Once I played a custom map and had a battle with 7 favoured enemies. I played both sides, so I put all 7 stacks close together and used Imbue Arrow with Meteor Shower... that was nice fireworks

@Darkeye
Your online key should be inside your HoF box that you bought...or what do you mean?
