Yeah, game freezes over pink player, I killed both of his heroes, still freezes so no solution I can think of, sorry. You have to kill all leaders much faster I think, with so many scripts in background, letting them run is risky. I always kill them all before second week of second month so I never experienced such bugs.

I have just destroyed only necro faction. With only henchman anh commander killing thing like hundreds of darkness dragons (guarding way to inferno town) seems impossible to me and depends too much on luck. And I think giving commander all skills is bad idea because he would become pretty much useless once he gets shooting, no more deathstare/ atk around/ atk twice. Next time i will avoid all the crystals which gives speed skill. Anyway seems I have to restart.

You can always sail on sea and get to the other parts of the map. (Instead of fighting you just get arround)

For your commander all skills are good,because he is not obliged to shoot,he can go melee.

BTW,in the Doctor version Haart can place obstacles on the battlefield.

You can switch between shoot and hand to hand attack, you know that, right (right click on defense icon)? Also, if you can handle scratching a bit erm, I can give you my scripts I use when playing, where I remove/add shoot WHEN I want, and death stare stays. Thats because I mostly play on quick combat once he is strong, and I don't want him to shoot all the time.

I have no ideas about this @_@

And I'm blind about scripting so lets just leave things as they are, I will try hulk this time for OP balista and free ignore def I think xD.

Yes I remembered just now that I can park my ship near inferno town without passing the bordergate with darkness dragon xD

A little bit tricky.
Try to move with the ship left,right,up or down until you reach the right sirens for you to get in.

when I first played as azrael, I was sent right into the small room with the orb, iirc.

Has u tried xarfax? the amount of 3rd - 7th lvl creatures around his town is significantly more than that of 1st and 2nd lvl ones. Idk what map makers thought, they put some resources mines around the inferno land, all are guarded with 3rd - 4th lvl creatures, at the shipyard, there is a 7th lvl creature guarding. At the border guard, there is a darkness dragon, both are throng in week 1. Do they hate inferno so they left inferno starving to death? What would you do to get out of this situation?

Also:
Quote:
Both of Xarfax's henchmen are assigned to him automatically, and are restored automatically after being killed in battle, unlike other henchmen.


what does this 'restored' mean? If the banshee dies in battle, status shows 'DEAD' after that.

if AI only (I suppose). But isn't banshee the commander?

For number of creatures on map, you have to choose first difficulty (5% artifact) if you want decent challenge. All above is much harder.

No banshee is the main henchman, xarfax's commander is the shaman like fortress's commander.
I dont know, if that bonus is for AI only then they dont need to explain it in the instruction, and xarfax would be the most mediorce leader, atleast much weaker than azrael, hulk and lord haart.

about difficulty I chose the 2nd line (x2 growth, 10% artifacts).

I mean I finished the map twice with azrael and hulk and had proceeded a bit with lord haart in the same difficulty, none of them are hard to begin with like xarfax. They have skely, pikeman, many 1st lvl creatures and resources around. While the inferno land is stacked with mostly 3rd lvl or above creatures, they are strong but more importantly they are scarce, so by the time a player have to get out of the land or even just take some mines, his lvl, spells and army shouldn't be enough.

With the other leaders there are always some ways to get out and explore the map without too hard fighting but with xarfax, there are only 2 ways, after killing everything possible I have to either go by a shipyard which is guarded by devils, or pass a red bordergate which is guarded by darkness dragon, by that time my main henchman is lvl 8 only.

I recall Xarfax being one of the easiest, doesn't the banshee clone itself upon attack? Also you can use cheat (hero screen) to give him all commanders artifacts from the start, then is easier.

Looks like you disabled its shooting ability by right clicking on defend icon. Re-enable it by doing same.

Wow I was going to tell you how it is unfair that there are 5 strongholds around the map but only 2 confluxs and 1 infernos and so on.

Still this map needs more works of balancing to be 'balanced'. currently it is almost impossible to process as orrin especially on 1st time (only one way to go, blocked by diamonds dragons). I had to reset many times until I got enough lvl to kill them with deathstare, retreated many times too. And that was only the start.

Also I want to ask you about those pics on 1st page. How did u get 7k mighty gorgons with just 1 fortress town and Where did u learn force field?

Forcefield is on an island in the southwest part of the map.
Reachable with waterwalk.

About towns-in the begining some of them are randomly chosen,so you can have more fortresses.
But the main part is intown growth-you pay and upgrade population.

to me towns are not randomly generated. Here there is always a stronghold, there there is always a tower. Never seen any fortress, except morass city. This is why I'm regretting choosing hidden race for orrin, army is scarce.

I know the intown growth, that was why I asked, it provides 2 more each upgrades for 5th lvl dwelling. so after each weak we have 14 more. It would take 9-10 months or so to have 7k, I think a veteran like him would finish it much sooner. And his hydra henchman in the same picture, lvl 92, my 7th-8th lvl creatures henchman never reach 70.

that island u said, is it the one with a windmill, or the quest guard which needs cloak of undead king and elixir of life?

emerald tower ALSO offers growth increase, and it is progressive. Also with the last version, you can choose that all neutrals towns on map be your faction, so you can  have up to 5 fortress if hidden race.
