fulano,

Yes, I might be in the minority here, but I like the adventure part of the game better. I know a lot of people like the combat, but I'm not crazy about it. Do you use the manual combat for every battle, including against the monsters guarding the resources and mines? For me, it's a foregone conclusion that I will beat them, so why spend a minute or two fighting them?

In all these types of games, I like the empire building part better than the combat. Lords of the Realm, Caesar, Age of Empires, Total War, come to mind. Although I did sometimes use the manual combat in prior versions of HOMM, I find that with HOMM V, it takes way too long for my tastes.

As they say, different strokes for different folks.

Hi, Cepheus.

I can gather the data, but can you tell me how to go about doing that? Where do I get the info from? In the Map folder, the maps aren't listed by name.

Thanks.

It'll be more than enough if you simply write down which scenarios the forced battles occur in (i.e. map 2 of The Cultist or whatever) and, if possible, at what point during the map it took place. You should just need to play through the missions to find them. All I need to do then is find the map script and edit out this "feature", which is easy.

I could do that, Cepheus, but that would sort of be defeating the purpose. If I have to play through the missions to find where the forced battles occur, then I've already played them and it doesn't matter if you fix it, because I probably won't play it again. haha

Would you be able to tell me how to do it? Tell me where to find the scripts and what the code is and what to change it to. Then I can do a "Find" in my text editor for the code and change it to what you say.

If it's too much trouble, I understand, but I appreciate that you're trying to help me.

Basically, the forced battles occur in every major battle in all the missions in all of the TOE Campaigns and in all of the 5 standalone scenarios, included with the game. They don't occur against monsters guarding resources or mines, but basically occur whenever you fight the enemy and in all the battles that produce a cut scene, right after you defeat them. It also happens if winning the battle completes an objective.

It arrived on Athens a few hours ago Already finished Quroc's campaign very smooth though the battle animation seems a bit slower. Great initiative to have the skillwheel and fan manual in a fandocuments folder and I also see a folder for:
User mods
User campaigns

That seems like Ubi supports custom content
Seems great so far!

Edit: No, only orc animations seem slower. Maybe I'm just not used to them.


how do you edit someones campaign?

with expert trainer(35% cost reduction) and expert counterstrike(30%) the training of 10 footmans to priests costs 6299 gold, with expert trainer(35%) and ultimate counterstrike(45%) - 3599, how is that possible ?
I play tote 3.1 , btw the storm wind description is the same as in 3.0(-1 init, -1 speed), but this perk now decreses the init by 20% and the speed by 2

You should check the 3.1 changelog, there were many changes most of which were never documented within the game.

Actually not sure if there is a 3.1 skillwheel since short of a few descriptions nothing changed. Some mistakes you may find are gate master coming from diplomacy(should be recruitment) and remote control not requiring mark of the wizard(it does).

Hi, Beriadanwen.

Getting the cheat console to work can be a pain, but it does work if you do it properly. Tell me exactly what you did and then I can help you get it to work.

Also, did you ever beat Laszlo?

Well , I wrote the stuff i was supposed to in profiles , autoexec and input , but nothing. And then I read that i had to write those in the input and start at my profile in my documents ... i did that and now it works.
Thak you for all your help.

I played the Laszlo campaign a few times before I beat him ... he was a tough one 4 me .
I played HommV with cheats , so I didn't realize how important strategy and skills were ... I had a hard time with hammers of fate not having cheats at all ... Tribes of the east was a bit complicated as well for the first 2 campaigns , but i managed to pull them trough.
I tried several approaches , like conquering the hardest town first , when it had no important army, or block the way for an enemy and then attacking him with several hired heroes so I can lower his army numbers
This forum was ever so helpful.
I play 4 fun , I'm no game freak , but it still drives me crazy when I can't pull through
Thank you again and keep up the good work.

@ Beriadanwen:

I'm not an Administrator or Moderator here. I just signed up in April myself.

Some of those Campaigns were a nightmare, especially the ones where you have to build up your hero in one scenario so he's strong enough in the next scenario.

I'm glad you got the cheat console to work. Now entering the cheats is another matter. It can be very finicky, so you have to enter them exactly as written. The problem is that some people who wrote the cheat codes out made mistakes.

I think this link will come in handy. The link you were already given is the best one, but this one is good, too.

Click here for Cheat Codes

Good luck. If you're interested in music, look for the thread that says, "What Music Are You Listening To Now?"
