Seems lack of a 'specability' animation causes the problem.

If you mean this graphical mod, it works simply if you installed it correctly. So what's the problem now?

is there an effect which looks like a laser going through everything (especially creatures)? it's for a melee attack, a kind of laser breath.

I think the Lich's shot would look the best. Use that god-awful pink laser to redeem itself .

I don't think either of those could work for a breath attack, though.

my 1st try was the fire elemental shooting effect, but it doesn't go through stacks (or maybe it can? I remember shooting effects can go through stacks, but only with the magic attack)

Hi there (again for a long time). I have some guestions concerning this new creature - making. First of all, I'm terribly sorry if I ask guestions that has already been answered, I just couldn't find them (yes, I'm aware there's a search function ).

In GameMechanics\Creature\Creatures\Neutrals I have this definition file for my new creature, and in that file I have a tag <MonsterShared>. Could someone point out what it actually is? Am I right if I say this refers to how this creature appears on the map (-editor)? And if I leave this tag blank, they're only usable as random creatures?

And another guestion, when I'm at, lets say _(BasicSkelAnim)/Creatures/Necropolis/Death_Knight, and I open attack00.(BasicSkelAnim) which, I suppose, is the definition file for skeletal animation when attacking (whoa, messy ), I find the following tags:

<SrcName href="/models/Creatures/Necropolis/DeathKnight.mb"/>
<ExpSrcClip href=".../Clip/DeathKnight.attack00.ma"/>
<ExpSettingsFile href=".../settings_character_anim.ges"/>

Could someone tell me what exactly are those .mb, .ma and .ges files?

The names of the source files that Nival created - they're not shipped with the game.

I don't even understand why the .xdbs use up memory to hold their names when they don't even exist Furthermore those lines even confuse modders at start (like Cougar)

they were too lazy to modify the source code. or maybe hundreds of xdb files.

Fiur: Have you seen the tutorial already?

http://www.heroesofmightandmagic.com/heroes5/modding_wiki/modding_tutorials:adding_effects_to_creatures

BTW. Is there any explanation of the files needed for a new creature? let's say GameMechanics\CreatureVisual\Creatures\Neutrals\X.xdb doesn't tell much about what the file actually does. Trying to figure out the meaning by browsing file's content doesn't always work. I'd also like to see which files are minimum required in order to have a new creature, since some modded creatures have more files (to make 'em look better etc.) than others.

fiur : open an anim file.
(for example T1_Gremlin_Saboteur-arena-idle00.xdb)
they are in Characters or in _(BasicSkelAnim) most of the time

find that line : <Effect/>

open an anim file of the water elemental, find the effect line, copy the link and paste it in the anim file of the creature you are making. do that for each anim file needed.
