I was wondering... I really like the idea of having the Era Scripts mod integrated into WoG like Igrik's version of Era. Is it possible that maybe we could do the same with the Eng version? It would be pretty convenient if we had those extra scripts in there by default. Like.. we could also do WoG Revised the same way. Doing that would be like genuinely updating the WoG mod itself to take care of bugs and adding new features. Is that something you would be interested in doing Bersy?


By doing that you would limit the possibility of mods that can be applied to ERA. After using ES you can roughly add only 500kb of .erm file which corresponds to 10000 lines of code, after that you get on Error saying Internal Memory over 30Mb. I tested it and it is a problem.
So while in principle okay with the idea it needs to be considered carefully.

Or in other words: by doing this you would render several mods incompatible with ERA by default.

Era should contain the less mods possible,  for compatibility purposes.
Mods then can be added manually

I completely agree
That's why I no longer build with many mods.

I will probably try to increase ERM memory limits in the next release (either to 60 MB or to infinity).

Sorry, Val, !?MP/!!MP will be fully rewritten in a thread-safe way, thus old code using old !?MP/!!MP will need adjusting. Currently music is played in one execution thread, while main code (including ERM, dialogs, actions) is executing is main thread. The issue is that !?MP event occurs in music thread, but calls ERM. So there is always possibility of random crash and data corruption even with UseSingleCpuCore=1, because 2 pieces of ERM code could be executed in a parallel. Try playing with

!?MP;
!!IF:M^^;

New approach will use Heroes 3 functions for music controlling:
Play Theme, Pause Theme, Resume Theme, OnPlay. All of them are executed in the main thread. The corresponding safe trigger and receivers will be added/replaced (!?MP, !!MP S D C).

Hi!
GoG Complete + Era 2.8.3 is enough. Run Era Start Menu -> Mod Manager and enable Fast Battle Animation for fast battle animation and Yona for kill/damage statistics in battle log.

Thank you.
But do you know a safe place from where I could download a working ERA setup?
Last time I had ERA 7.7 and when I was starting WoG it was giving me an error.
And also,does ERA works with HD mod?Can I open WoG from HD launcher?

Ok, but can I use some UN to restore them only for 300 spartans and Atlantis (as I do until now) because I don't feel like rewriting hundreds of lines of codes?

you gave me this:

;enable MP receiver
!#UN:C5876817/4/496825064;
!#UN:C5876821/1/0;

Will it work on new Era versions as well?

Nope. Maybe I can write some script, rewriting your code. Could you show how did you use !?MP/!!MP?

I have a bug that caused the game to completely freeze on the AI turn.

I have been trying to isolate it to try to understand whats going on, and it seems like the issue is that in the specific SOD map (with wogify) that I am playing (the fall of atlantis) there are a lot of prisons, the AI is getting too many heroes, and when this gets into a specific number, the game collapse.

The reason I am saying it, because if before I finish my turn, I am killing any enemy hero (no matter which color), the game don't get stuck.

I think this is also the reason why I am getting black squares instead of heroes in the tavern from time to time.

I am using GOG heroes 3 complete + ERA II 2.8.3 + better AI + WoG revised, so nothing fency.

Download this plugin (link), and put it in a folder "WoG"->"EraPlugins"
And try to continue the game. Perhaps help.

hey thanks for the answer!
I tried it, but it didn't seem to change anything at least on the saved game, do I need to start a new game to test this change?

No, you do not need to start a new game. So it will not help.

Usually after 12th month of playing, this bug has much bigger chances to occur. More you keep playing, more chances it has. The only solution is to finish maps in less than one year, and is not at all related to wog, but original game problems/.

hi Bersy, time ago I created a simple package with new creature icons, all they had to do was copy and rewrite the old ones in ModsWoGDatazvsLib1.res folder.

But in the new version, even after overwriting, the old icons appear. don't you know where the problem might be?
