This thread could very easily get confusing...

@BJ: Put in a Ghost.  Press CTRL+SPACE and look to the left in a map editor.  You will see something called "Shared" with a box next to it.  Click that.  Then you will see two buttons apear at the far right of the box.  Click on the first one (not the one that says new) and the rest should be there.

It just doesn't work to me. I'm really newbie to the editor stuff. I better work with texts and textures from data.pak

It's a shame having lots of separate question threads clogs up the forum, because I can see people's questions slipping past those who might be able to help because they're lost amongst all the other bits...

Quote:
@GnollMage:
Q1: the map editor only loads .pak files in data/, that you've taken care of. But did you try putting it in dataa1/ for the HoF editor?

Q2: in H5/HoF, creatures and heroes had two models. The combat (arena) was better defined (bigger textures), while the advmap was lower quality (smaller textures with less details at times). I assume they first made the smaller ones, and added the more detailed ones later.
In ToE, they (finally) figured out that they could use the better model for advmap as well.
Same for icons, that now only come in 128x128 flavor, and are resized by the game as needed.

Q3: in the Crystal Dragon thread, page 2, start from the end.
CharacterView is an obsolete remnant that is not used anymore as far as I know (even in H5).


Thanks very much, trademark usefulness Didn't think of putting it in the HoF data folder, I'll give that a go now
Edit: darn, it didn't work, guess I'll just have to edit the pak permanently / use the game.

Quote:

* the .exe also has a built-in check that the list has 180 items. This should also be updated.
The issue of course is to find the correct places where something should be changed. Crazypill did that for HoF .exe, and that's what is explained in Kronos tutorial on the wiki.


You don't by any chance happen to understand why this particular edit works, i.e. how someone worked out that was what needed doing? And why does it need the Russian file?

Angel Wings stuff for DS if he still needs it (is this what you want?):

- Instance 0: ParticleInstance:Effects\_(Effect)\Characters\AngelWings_hero_move.(ParticleInstance)
- Model 0:
ModelInstance:Effects\_(Effect)\Characters\AngelWings_hero_move.(ModelInstance)
and then:
false, 1, 2.5



ParticleInstance:
- Light: L_NORMAL
- Particle: Particle:Effects\_(Effect)\Characters\AngelWings_hero_move.(Particle)
- EndCycle: 4
- Texture 0:
Texture:Textures\Effects\_Various\Glow05
- Texture 1:
Texture:Textures\Effects\_Various\SparkYellow01



ModelInstance:
Model:_(Model)\Effects\Characters\AngelWings_hero
BasicSkelAnim:_(BasicSkelAnim)\Effects\Characters\AngelWings_hero_move.(BasicSkelAnim)

More?

Possible to Change Skills?

Is it possible to modify skills, or are they hard coded? I'm trying to make the first aid tent heal 50% more per level, so it would cap out at 150 instead of 100, but I can't find anything from data.pak that seems to correlate to the current values. I found how to give it more shots, but I'd like to give it a little bump in power also.

Did I miss the file that lets me change it? I looked under the WarMachines in RefTables, and at spells and skills in GameMechanics.

Thanks for the help.


Here's a list of all files with the word "tent" in, might just be useful:

@Zeebo13: I don't remember seeing this parameter anywhere either.
For other such skill tweaking, the place to look at is:
/GameMechanics/RPGStats/DefaultStats.xdb

@Radar: yes I think 6 spells par page is doable, by editing the spellbook interface. Look at /UI/SpellBook/SpellBook.(SpellBookDesc).xdb

@Wulfstan8182: you should be able to open your HoF map in the ToE editor.

@Gnoll_Mage: to load your mod in the map editor, try unpacked in dataa1/ or data/.
About editing ToE .exe to allow more creatures, see my thread about it.

@BIGJOCKER: I'm afraid you can't change which creature growth is increased by the horde buildings.

When an orcish Executioner or Chieftain strikes at an enemy, the "hit"-animation of the enemy is delayed for about two seconds (same issue with the "blood-splash"). How do I synchronize their attacks with the enemy's hit animation (and "blood-splash")? Should I change their "attack00.xdb"-scripts, and give them the same script as Slayers (who doesen't seem to have the same problem)? Or should I do otherwise?

I love this thread, it is so helpful! anyway here is my question. Every time i change the texture of the creature, put it in the right folders in the right order, .h5u format, in the UserMODs folder AND in the data folder(so it works in the editor) and for some reason the textures are all screwed up, like this:

I was trying to make an Azure Dragon and for some reason it turned out to be golden, does anyone know what the problem could be?
EDIT: yes, the file in the data folder is a .PAK

Well the issue is probably your dds converter because I heard various people about a similar problem, I have never experienced this myself, but the answer is use a new dds converter I always use photoshop with its dds plugin.

@Wulfstan8182: is your map editor issue solved? (opening HoF map in ToE)

@BIGJOCKER: did Wulfstan's answer solve your building question?

@Brynjolfr: These files specify the OrcChief animation, not the target's reaction delay I'm afraid. Except maybe if you increase the anim SpeedFactor, but it may look weird.
If you test it, and let us know how it goes.
