I'm trying to change the appearance of a hero editing his properties; while the Archmagi LOD works fine, the Magi LOD (which I actually need) is all messed up (y'know, he looks like a gangly spider). Any ideas why...?

Off the top of my head, it sounds like skeleton / geometry issues, let me just open the editor...

Edit:
I don't get it, I try to change the model in the editor, nothing happens, I click reload map, still nothing, I close and reopen the editor, and ... the hero has vanished...

Okay it seems like it's impossible to edit hero models in the editor - yesno?

Could someone link me to the mod that adds details about dark energy and rage levels into the game?

Edit: nvm, found (the French version of) it here.

Of course it's possible - reread my previous post.

Can someone direct me to where all the music files are located? I'm guessing it's one of the two Sounds folders, but I have no idea where to start looking.

I know the feeling, I've discovered that the exe was in the bin directory only with the DM map

Well you didn't really specify that you were doing it via the `mod editor`
So how do you edit a hero's appearance from within the editor, rather than editing the data files more directly?

I am editing the files within the editor by customizing the "shared" properties.

what do you mean by "not working"? are you saying that it is a wrong colour or are you saying that it is not showing up?

@Vlaad: that's what I was trying to do! But it did nothing. Turns out you have to change the ColourModels. Both the Magi work fine for me, so I don't really know what to suggest, perhaps you only changed a selection of the settings by accident, or you accidentally changed one of the skeleton and geometry of the model (check they match each other).

@DS: checking. Edit: works fine in the editor. Does it work in the editor for you?

Heh, I just put the mod in and it worked. Perhaps you have a more recent version of the texture files accidentally loose in a data folder.

@Ceph: are you sure? I thought all the ghosts looked different.

Could someone confirm for me that HoMM does not load from user mods any files within the "bin" folder ? (I'm trying to replace the TotE Tome of Light Magic file with the HoF one, cos I'm convinced they're different...)

Edit: well although they are different sizes, they may not be different, so my test may not have shown that HoMM probably doesn't replace bin files. This is because I had accidentally changed a texture without realising it (I'd changed it for another fiddle and it happened, since it was a general texture, to be used for the Tome as well).
