Nice to see a familiar face from the old days

Anyway here's a little experiment with the Celestial Dragon Hero versus Crage and his almighty Cerulean Firebird:

Hello,I think you should use the Cerulean Firebird as a NCF Creature.So,players who like both Phoenix and Firebird in their army can have them both.Try to make it as the 2nd alternative upgrade for the Suzaku unit,it will be cool.

Yes,but is also called 2nd alternative upgrade so exept from the alternative one(thunderbird) is the second alternative(Cerulean Firebird).As for the Nexus as a new faction,I am trying to learn how can new towns be added and as soon as I learn it,I will notify the ToK team.

adding new towns will be always a nice idea.

I can give you some clues: in first seen, hex-editing of H5 executable is necessary and editing of types.xml file as well.

the best one?

In fact, the most important is finding the corresponding offset (bytes position) in the executable having the number of the town in the game. after that, we can take any program to modify bytes.

no need to trace the code step-by-step. just finding the offset.

Ex: number of creatures's offset are known (NCF) in the exe.
there are 2 offset to modify with same value. probably there are 2 offset for number of town too.

for my share, I don't know anymore a just-hex-edit program. When I want to enter in a exe, I use a dissambler. for NCF, I used Visual Studio .NET to hex-edited the exe.

In fact, I found offset and I created my-self a program that crushed it-self bytes into the offset.

about me, the best dissambler on the net is Immunity Debbuger

http://www.immunityinc.com/products-immdbg.shtml

but as I said you, I didn't use it to hex-edit exe for NCF.

you can use this program to create no-DVD crack for games.

All right I'll tell you the deal with creating new towns; in the case of creatures you can add as much as you like by increasing the number hard coded in the exe. Before Tote it was hardly useful since one couldn't add abilities. With towns all buildings', except for dwellings, marketplaces and blacksmiths, effects are hard coded in the exe file so in theory one could add a new town, but it'll miss the building effects. Unless someone can decompile the exe this cannot be done that's why we/I decided to use the TOWN_DUNGEON ID for Nexus so that it has the Dungeon town's effects, those are the only ones not specifically linked to creatures of that town (i.e. Bloodrage, Gating, Training etc.)

And I think the Cerulean Firebird would be a tad to powerful to be a NCF Creature.

@SimonaK: I used Hex workshop to edit the exe for ToK to add creatures, artifacts and Heroes.

It is so sad that nearly all these major projects that looked so good falls apart and dies...

It was like this with the Elemental Conflux and the New Fortress mods too... Not to mention Ghosts of the Past.

Indeed, and I strongly hope Kronos is okay in real life - haven't heard from him in months.

Not the first time and probably not the last, I must ask if this project is still alive.  As usual, I really hate seeing so much hard-work and dedication into something like this fall apart, as many of you have mention...  If it is alive I wish Kronos1000 and all his helpers good luck

*crawling through the forums* how is this project going? Is it alive?

Are there any of the modders still here? I see that you have made some nice HEX editing progress on the exe. It will be nice if I can ask you a few things.
