I've redone battery.dll from delphi+asm to cpp+asm and then added some functionality and called it battery2.dll.

the plugin is on my plugin repo. the only new  functionality so far is ability to change non-dwelling building into battery-like dwelling. the battery2.dll is open source.

Hi guys.

I downloaded latest ERA update but since then my battle animations keep going slow, even on the maximum setting. I tried 2 mods - Fast battle animation and Turbo WOG (didn't use them together as advised) but the result is pretty much the same.

I didn't have same problems with the last version.
Any advices? Maybe to use some other mod?

I've encountered strange issue which I encounter only on this map called Argonia regardless of ERA version altough I haven't checked it on WoG 3.58f. After map is wogified, commander crystals can't be picked up, some WoG buildings can't be visited and crystal stacks spawned on new week also can't be picked up.

Map Argonia -> https://1drv.ms/u/s!Agkzb-Ndg2gFl0wpU7c1QAX7TOhT?e=zAhdVL

At first I thought my copy of ERA is bugged but other maps proved it wrong. Had anyone encountered this before?
Is this cause : ""Enter overlap at (86, 38, 1)."
Entrance of one object is overlapped by another object. This usually causes bugs and even crashes in the game."

Thanks.

Looks like some old map (but good quality design) where mapmaker is generous with wog structures and then he leaves to you the tedious task of enabling the right scripts for them to work. So far, from what I get after a short glance, try activating all wog structures, mithril, emissaries and such

@edit, I started game and I see what you mean. Go in editor, and assign yellow square to every commander crystal, now they can be picked. Maps where people disable objects by making them not visitable but keeping type/subtype risk going bugged. When using visitable objects for decoration only, their type should be changed to 40 - decoration.

They are enabled. But, try to collect crystal stacks (week spawn) near Asterot or visit School of Wizardry (object replaced during wogification) near Espengot. And it happens only on this map.

Maybe there was error during ERA upgrade but if so I would encounter those problems on other maps.

The wizard tower is a wogification error, it replaced a rally flag which had next square a monster, so it pushed the object a step down, then the yellow square got confounded with the monster. When you defeated the monster, the yellow square got off, thus the tower is now dead object. I would not use "replace" option on custom maps where the mapmaker stuffs everything like sardines. Such scripts are for random maps, where passability is generous

For the crystals, usually this kind of error occurs when there are too many objects/decorations on the map. is the plugin "game bug fixes" activated?

Plugin game bug fixes is active.
"Mods\WoG\EraPlugins\game bug fixes.dll"

Unless this location is wrong.

Sometimes maps, even if correctly designed, act strangely. I had such experiences, maybe 2-3 maps out of the thousand I tested. Hard to dig into the reasons, without spending weeks to investigate, so play another map, or don't replace and see how goes, or give a save from the first week resources are places on first day, so I can investigate the appropriate script and add check for square.

I think original save is playable so I will try to finish it. Nevertheless, here goes new save from first week:

No, you used replace objects. You can already see that the crystal replacing resource near your town screwed accessibility. Custom maps should NEVER use replace wogification.

Hi, z. You probably have WoG mod in the highest position. Run mod manager and try to change mods order.

Drake, I have bug report regarding wog campaigns and wog options. Maybe your map has the same issue.

hi guys,

I'm working on engineering for 5 years now and every single day, I play homm3 on my PC during lunch time. I mean every single day

couple of years ago I try HOTA with HD mods and I love it,

I heard that WOG is now quite optimal with HD mod but I cannot enjoy it  because there is not hotkeys with on Hota+HD mode.

Example :
CTRL SHIFT clic--= split unit on your army
be able to recruit without entering fort
and so on...

Those hotkeys make the gameplay way more attractive and I cannot enjoy playing WOG/ERA without it.

Are they any patch or something else where I can play WOG/ERA with the same kind of hotkeys?

Thank you for your help and long live homm !

HD hotkeys absolutely work with Era (at least until 5.0 beta 31,the latest I have) but you first have to play with the tweaks in HD settings, until everything works.

majaczek, thanks. I looked through battery2 code. Nice work, but anyway I'm changing API totally and both battery dlls will conflict with it. My task is to provide universal dwelling hiring event with configurable properties, options and behavior. It will be a tool. Library like battery2 can be implemented with new API in ERM or Lua (ERM has SN:M arrays for things like AdditionalBuildingsAvailible).
