Hello thank you for your quick answer:


Concerning this hota version i tried it, but it just adds ONE new town? Not possible to get more?


Concerning the changes, i just thought about balancing the different towns (from ten thousand games of experience).


I just have absolutly no idea how to do it . I read some tutorials and it was like chinese...



Concerning this script changes, would you mind doing it???? If you say it is not complicated? If you explain me how to do it, i would gladly help you analyse an adwords/analytics acc (im certified^^).

How does that sound? I am addicted to heroes, i played it when i was 7 and i will play it when i am 70 ^^.

No sorry. Sometimes I do mods on requests if I agree with and if I believe there will be some audience to, thus the work time is worth. But your requests, I agree with none (no offense, it's just a matter of opinion and game experience).

Fortress is strong town, behemots must be given early because that's the only stronghold advantage, castle archangels are already too strong so delays to them are good, rampart is already the 2nd best town, so upgrading elves to sharps will provoke nuclear blast all around. The only request I may agree is for pillars of eyes. But very few people play on impossible mode.

Great!

Also, I'd like to edit some of the colors of the level 8 units, but the h3sprite.lod file doesn't have the wog units, only the originals. With the era II, are the DEFs saved under a different file?

Suggestions for what folder should I put it in? I made a games folder but that causes the game to crash or misplace images like icons and battlefields.

They are in the WoG folder (yourErafolder/Mods/WoG/Data/hmm35wog.pac).
I have my game folder under my Desktop, but I guess any other place than program files should do.

Ps. There is also some modding-related threads where you can seek for help, personally I'd ask here.

this comes from wog sources. the fairy  power function probably sets the spellpower for monster. but what  exactly does function check4fairy? I want to fix the code from hardcoded caster behaviour (I guess it makes crash I ope to fix).

realized that this might belong in here:

ran into a weird issue:



as you can see by the pic, creature dwellings stops at 95. that is a problem, because i need to plug in creature dwelling 100(dracolich). running era 2, the latest version. using objtxteditor, ofc. this issue doesn't pop up using the era 1.8+wog that i run. that statement is wrong. it doesn't show up in the map editor, but still does in the objtxteditor. just had to set the view to "expert", which ungrayed the number drop-down list below the regular view.

There is no 100 in objt editor, just add it manually in text file then test to see if it works.

Era issues + map inquiry

EDIT: Morning light brought enlightement. I figured out an answer to a few questions here and removed them. Those left, I fear I cannot handle on my own.

Greetings everyone, I hope you're having a good day! I'm sorry if this thread is too general for these questions, but since my account is new I cannot open a new, clean one.

I've installed Era II this week, and I'm having a few issues/questions (first program issues, then map question #6). I wonder if someone could help me.

1) The hero movement is really stuttery - I tried Googling the issue, but the only thing I found are threads about a stuttery sound, nothing about movement. Can I remedy this?

2) All the maps seem to work nicely (WoG/WoG+Era), but Robinson Crusoe crashes the game when I try to pick "New Scenario" option - which makes me wonder since it's not even picking the map, just trying to open a map list. It's also bugged in the editor. Hm. Also, Thunk doesn't want to open in editor plus says it lacks .pcx portaits. Is this a problem with the package or are some WoG maps not meant to be played in Era?

3) I was trying to play the Chaser map, and I got to the part with a Brute minotaur. It was winnable only on quick-fight. In normal-fight he had impossible amount of HP (105k+), my troops were dealing around 100-200dmg to him, and the Titan Bolt spell was actually healing him. No kidding

4) When I start a game in some random map (that doesn't enforce WoG settings like Chaser) I'm getting syntax error message followed by alliances question (custom/default thing). Is this worrisome? Now I got something without the alliances, so probably not connected. Here's what it said:
-----------------------
ERM syntax Error.
File: erm
Line: 5212
Reason:
"VNCopy"-internal error (source=0). Possible reason is wrong macro syntax.

Save all ERM vars to WOGERMLOG.TXT (may take time)?
-----------------------
-----Context-----
P45/=1;
!#IF&1:V432/1; // enable v432, if script is enabled

!?PI&432; // post instruction (start of the map) - Init Vars v1600-v1984 (used to save which upgrades are built)
!!VRv1600:C0/0/0/0/0/0/0/0.....
-----------------

5) And speaking of such options - I assume I should be using the list.txt to enable maps like Chaser or Ice Arrow? And then remove those entries when I play something else? Or did I figure it out wrong?

6) Speaking of Chaser (and maps in general). I've roamed the forums and map banks for some interesting, scriptey maps to play, and I found some recommendation lists (and tried this and that from them), but I fear I might be too big of a noob for those So I'd like to ask if someone could recommend me some XL fun maps (no Painted the Mistfit, played it already, I remember I liked it a lot) that allow for a leisurely pace? I don't want to calculate every pixel of movement, because AI is getting free army every week and if I stall they'll be unbeatable

Speaking of unbeatable, I'd love to see a video of someone winning the Last Hope (Trunk prequel). Does it exist? I had issues surviving the 1st week AFAIR Been curious ever since.

I tried Dragon in my Heart, and it was all fine and dandy until at some point a wild necromancer rode out of his hellhole and I couldn't deal with him in any way possible (that was a while ago, before I tried Era, but I remember I cheated up a bajillion of archangels and still couldn't kill that ragcake. I lured him and blocked him with the cheat archangel hero when I had enough of them so that the necro didn't want a fight xD But that's no fun, I hate cheating. I did it so I could finish the storyline, but the fun was over...)

I tried Chaser, yea, and it seemed awesome at first, but then I hit the brute (and started wondering if it's bugged), and then the GOD fella (totally mashed my face, not even funny), and I went to see what internet says about it and it seems to require an actual grind - harvesting ghosts or making archers or similar. I don't like that. I like tactics, I like gathering armies, I love hero-focused maps/campaigns, but grind is a no-go for me

I also tried Baron's Drogba, but it got really tiresome after a while. The fights kinda forced me to blind/resurrect countless troops every fight and at one point [before the blue Necro heroes] I just gave up, it wasn't fun. Is there a smarter and less boring way to win the fights there bte? I'd love to read about it! The castles were so few and neutered it wouldn't even make sense to wait a month or two to gather some strength, but maybe I just missed something crucial . I also had to keep looking for paths/invisible gates in the map editor not to mouseover over every square, but this I think is simply a matter of preference.

I recall playing Thunk once upon a time, and I had fun, but it got bugged (don't remember how). I think I replayed and then got my ass handed back to me by Thunk who first took away my empire and then my last beloved army with skilled troops, which made me say thank you I'm outta here I'm not sure he's supposed to be beaten even? Or just ran from. Oh well.

Hm, yea, anyway, if someone would like to recommend me something fun, but more casual I'd appreciate it But Heroes style. No poker or total conversions. I saw some screenshots from Era maps (Empire of the World?). Damn people can do anything in this thing!

Thank you and goodnight!

Uf, that's a lot of things to address, let's try to do what we can.


;hero movement: try to tweak options in heroes3.ini file.
UseOnlyOneCpuCore=0 or 1, try both then test, one of them should do the job

;robinson crusoe: what makes you think it is a wog/era map. Read map specifications. This is Hota map.

;chaser: this map was redo for era, it no longer requires ghosts. Yet is a challenging map to play

;error messages: after reading around what you say, it looks like your install is wrong. It is simple. You need Heroes 3 sod or complete, and over it you install era by double clicking on exe then specify Heroes 3 path. Then mods you install same way, specify same path. Do not install mods manually, just double click on executables.

;once you install a mod, is activated by default. If you install this way two scenarios as Chaser and Ice Arrow, you must deactivate one in order to properly play the other. Map/mods are not compatible each other. But you can use interface mods along with scenarios. Use mod manager to put mods ON/OFF. Also get the last version, update it.

;xl fun maps. Well depends on taste. From what you say, you have a hard time to finish a map for various reasons. In general era maps are a bit more complicated and challenging than vanilla, there is no reason someone spends months on scripting a map that you finish in one afternoon. You can browse era scenarios or maps4heroes.com. But wog maps are not playable in era, must be converted first.

;is true that some map use a lot of invisible paths and hidden things. I used to do same in my first designs because when you are a mapmaker, it is interesting to cope with editor possibilities. Probably less interesting for some players, but that's what keeps mapmakers creative too. A town, then a road then a monster everyone can design.


Damn people can do anything in this thing!


yep.

Thank you for the reply!

Wow, some WoG-map list trolled me with Robinson haha. That explains it surely, sorry!

As for the error, I narrowed it down to something in WoG Revised causing it. With that turned off, no errors happen.

Oh map-liking absolutely does depend on a taste. That's why I hoped someone who knows more maps would have something to recommend I know that some people love to play maps super fast, rush, collect some army on the fly, then rush back etc, and some like karmic battles with zounds of troops and 50 casts of ressurrection per battle, it's all good, I'm just more casual than that, but still love the long, creative maps where strange things happen and it's not Town-mine-monster kind of thing I just don't know how to play this game like a pro so very difficult maps are... well, very difficult/impossible

I tried one more from the recommendations I found, so far twice (dead) - Ice Arrow. The Blue champ Aine comes really fast and my army is just no match for her and it's just the beginning of the map. I have no idea what path to take to win vs her, she knocks me down when I got only 1 week of full-range troops in my army Just an example of my noobishness

You have solmyr hero in prison near your starting town. he must be rescued as soon, he has tome of earth and great spell power, he will kill Aine without problems, especially after taking the utopia. But sure, is not beginner map.

More like not a blind people map. Guess who found no prison anywhere near? Man, I should just go play Tetris haha.

Oh, and when it comes to the errors, it's in WoG Revised bit called "78 wog - wogify.erm". Anything I can do about it? Should I put it in and ignore the errors, or leave it out, or is it a deeper issue? As far as I saw I get errors everytime I start a map or load any savegame. Also got one when enemy attacked me but I'm not sure it was the same thing or just a standard unpredictalbe WoG burp (the battle actually continued after some notifications).

Well, there are no blind good maps. If a map allows progressing, no matter where you go, how long you delay, then is clearly not a map for seasoned players. if you want blind map, where you just start game and play, then try random map, there are interesting generators today. But custom maps must be like a scenario, why anyone would spend months to test and design a map if the player can do other things on?

Wog revised: normally is the mod fixing. Show your list of enabled mods, please.
