More's the pity

For years, to make a creature shooter in WOG through ERM was somewhat of a lost cause. Then you found a way (it had some troubles with the Loaded games but they were fixed as well) and it was made possible. Now, we find out that it doesn't work on ERA...

I hope a way will be found for that as well.

Yep, I tested it on both WOG 3.58f and ERA and it seemed to have worked (even when I loaded the game, the shooters were OK).

I made a new link for ERA users HERE. If someone tries it on ERA and sees that Skeleton Magi shoot normally (along with Trebuchets, Arbalests and Succubi) please confirm.

I know that. I just thought of making a new instalation pack for ERA users. In the future update, I won't make that distinction

I hope someone tries it soon and confirms that it works.

Ofcourse it didn't do anything by itself

The file you download is a rar file. You have to use winrar to open it and extract all the files within to Heroes folder (replacing where necessary).

THEN you must run the update (H3wUpd.exe in Heroes folder) and install.  

THEN you most go to WOG options and Load the WoGSetupEx.dat (in order to have the obligatory options to run the game).

We need someone to teach us how to make an .exe and get rid of all those endless manipulations. Like the .exe from last ERA (transfer files in appropriate location and run automatically update).

Oh common now... It's not that dificult to install...

I mean, Avenger obviously didn't now what a zipped archive was...

Sure, a self extracting-installing exe would be better, but the way it is now is not that dificult either.

I have a bunch of computer geeks in my ICQ list, so it was not long after some good advices. The advantage is that it gives instructions on the WoGSetupEx.dat utilization while in install process.

Wonderful!

Hi, Hero_Of_Light,

just discovered your mod. What a great surprise!

I LOVED the new concept of the cities, specially Haven (hate Conflux!) and my beloved bad ones - Inferno, Dungeon and Necro. A few things I dislike:

1. the Halflings in the Dungeon. IMHO, they would fit better to Rampart or Haven... I miss the Troglodites An idea: in Haven, the 1st level creature could be Sprites OR Halflings (I think Pixies are almost useless). And if you want another shooting creature in Dungeon, maybe Troglodites could throw their spears, or you could make Rogues that throw their knives.

2. Werewolves in the Inferno. Actually, they fitted well beside the Cerberi (Hell Hounds are useless), but my concern here is that a game in which 2+ players choose Inferno become overcrowed of Werewolves, due to the Licantropy.

I just installed HoL and played for about one hour. Two small bugs I noticed (probably you already have knowledge of them):

- in the screen in which you choose which Commander abilities you want to upgrade, the image in the upper corner is that of the "old" commander, not that of the new one;

- in the map, when I fought with a Militia, as soon as my hero "touched" them to fight, they turned into Troglodites (just in the Map; in the battle, everything was normal)

Once again: THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I'm as excited to play HoL as I was when I first played WoG

Thank you Kathyx for your kind words and welcome to Heroes Community!

As I stated in the presentation I wanted a roguish theme town (I made Conflux into one in HoL v2.2) and I thought Dungeon was the one... That meant that troglodytes were out (I'll stage a comeback in the next update). As for halflings, in D&D they are mostly thief characters (and their colours match the ones of Rogues) so I thought it was appropriate.

Quote:
Werewolves in the Inferno.


yeah you're quite right about that. However, AI player always prefers Cerberi so it is up to you to decide If you want your army teaming with Werewolves. It won't be an issue while battling against the AI player (It can be however in a Multiplayer game).

I am aware of both those issues. Don't worry, they don't affect the game in the slightest.

I understand your point of view, but could it be that you're thinking about the original kenders?

On the Werevolves, I actually think that the most annoying problem is related to the way they were conceived, in WoG. IMO, Lycanthrophy should affect humans only. I guess it would limit the number of werewolves in the game, and also be more... hmm... "realistic"

Gotta admire a well read girl

About the halflings... I agree that in most cases they were in the side of good (in Lord of the Rings for instance) but mostly they would be neutral creatures. I always thought that Dungeon was the least "b@d@ss" of the Evil towns (I mean, Inferno uses the forces of Hell and the undead...well they're undead) and so I don't think it's too far fetched to associate them with Dungeon. In a future update I may place them in Haven (it was my second choice actually).

About the Werewolves... You're right, I also think they're kind of buggy, but I can't do anything about it. I don't think they are too buggy though as to be messing the game entirely. I for one when I am fighting against werewolves always attack them with archer or "no reatliation" creatures to avoid any nasty outcomes of the battle. I think they are a very nice addition to the Heroes III saga though (it was a pity that such a reknown mythological creature wasn't included in the first place). But as I said... I saw into it, that the AI player will always prefer Cerberi.

Hi i am new here, i love H3, but don't like WOG...
This mod looks very good, i like those changes in towns (Phoenix to Rampart, Werewolf to Inferno, Enchanters,Nightmares...). But i don't like all of them, so i would like to made my own towns, as i already wrote i don't have WOG, i read lots of threads about creatures changing, i tried for exam. move efreet to dungeon, i replaced defs, renamed and edited stats with txtedit, but i can't change abilities... is there a way to completly "trade" creatures between towns or neutrals without WoG or ERM skills?
Thanks and sorry for my english.

No. At least I don't know any other way. With the txt files found in Heroes III lods you can change some stats and names. But in truth, in order to have complete command over the changes you MUST use ERM.

As for WOG, I don't see what's not to like... You can disable all the options and have original Heroes SoD... No option is obligatory for plain WOG to function.
