Edited by Furiosu at 13:22, 01 Sep 2012.

Hello, I've got another list of bugs/suggestions/questions for you.
If you require further information about reproducing any of these, or save games where they occured let me know and I'll try to provide them where I can. Please keep in mind that some of these bugs were encountered during multiplayer LAN in case that matters. Also some may be on HD mod, so it's entirely possible to be caused by one of the settings from that, if you can't reproduce on your end.

**1. Converting towns (demolish town buildings script): If you demolish a stronghold/fortress/castle and then change it into a town that has a more powerful mage guild (for example tower), the mage guild lvl 3/4+ are disabled (depending on what you demolished)
At the same time, owning an external dwelling from the converted town will boost the creature growth for the town after conversion (the increase is insane, owning one building increases the growth by +3). It should be noted that those buildings were taken before the conversion time (before I took the town I think, not really sure since I wasn't paying attention to that at the time). Taking other buildings  after conversion completed didn't seem to influence any creature growth.

Reproduced again with Rampart converted to Stronghold to check what happens with the mage guild the other way around (this time it's correct), however external dwellings still behaves incredibly wrong Owned 5 Dragon Cliffs, received +8 Behemoths from external dwellings..)

**2. The ban spells scripts are working differently for the AI and Human players when it the conflux grail is involved. I have Dimension Door and Fly banned for example, and if the AI takes the grail to a conflux, any AI hero that enters it will enjoy all spells. On the other hand if I take that town or take the grail to a conflux of my own, I won't get the spells. I wouldn't mind it if it worked the same way for both AI and player, as in either both don't get, either both get the spells.

**3. Orb of Vulnerability on AI hero -> AI can cast on immune creatures, Player cannot.

**4. There are WoG artifacts with 1g sell value at Artifact Merchants (not all of them, for example Dragonheart has a price) -> Commander Artifacts, Gold Tower Arrow, Monster's Power (maybe others as well, I have some of them banned)

**5. Tavern option: Invite a hero is not available in multiplayer games. First of all, which script does it and is it intended to be disabled in multiplayer? Can it be enabled safely? I find this to be a pretty nice option, removing some of the randomness factor when you're trying to find some better hero.

**6. After a hero is defeated and its commander killed, any artifacts currently present on the commander will not be transferred to the winner.

**7. The transfer owner script can be used for exploiting in well, lots of ways. Not saying it should be changed, cause tbh I've also found it useful, but people should know the possibility exists. Some of the ways it can be used in:
- Town portal to the town you want without Adv/Exp Earth Magic -> Buy heroes in all towns, get the outside, remove ownership of towns, Town Portal, get your towns back same day.
- Level 8 external dwellings can only be recruited from one time however if you remove/change allegiance and take it again, you can basically recruit endlessly)
- I just had another blackout, I'm sure there was one more oh well..

**8. This one is not 100% and I don't know exactly how it happens. Game crashed 3 or 4 times by using Right click on Hero or Town in the right side list. (to be noted I was using HD mod at the time, could be from it since it brings changes to that part) I'm guessing there's some crashlog for it, but I don't know where, let me know if there's any files you'd need for it.

**9. Is there any way of seeing AI turns after ending turn on the client in a multiplayer game? I mean, the client sees everything that moves, however the host only sees them if he replays turn, which is lost time. Any way to make them both see it at the same time?

**10. Is it possible to have Load/Main Menu buttons available during combat the way HD mod implements them? They're pretty useful (not having to finish fight or press Alt-F4) and with them there'd be less reasons to install HD mod tbh.

I could not find a solution for this neither. Once Heroes has in memory data about growth in a town, whatever you convert this town to, will remain unchanged. Tried thousand tricks, did not find a way. Of course, is not related to Era.

When two, or more new object mods are enabled both, editor crashes at start.

Furiosu, crashes and problem with hiring heroes, same as load/save proposals are for/from HD. What concerns bugs of scripts by WoG Team, they are definitely WoG Team's responsibility. SoD bugs are usually fixed by enthusiasts. Most of them are fixed in HotA by Sav, but still no plugin for Era with fixes. Thanks for the list of problems still.

Rytelier, install Era 2.4.

"Tavern option: Invite a hero is not available in multiplayer games"

That is not a bug, it's designed that way deliberately. i remember i've read somebody calling the "invite a hero" mod like cheating and the creator of the HD mod replied it's only for single player and people kind of do it with reloading the game over and over anyways. You can disable it from HD menu, more options ini file, set TournamentExtensions to 0

Khadras, make sure that:
1) You installed the game on SoD/Complete, not WoG.
2) You installed it not on disk C in Program Files, or that you have administrative rights.
3) Turn off DEP

Looks like new objects patch is already applied to this version so i didnt install it. However the emissary building still crashes the editor and "fix editor" is no more in start menu.

Edit: it's still in the tools folder though and fixes it.

No, it was done just for you. Nobody else asks such a doubtful feature Download from old link.

No, NOP is not here. Seems that you installed Era on Era. Emissaries building are not described in text files perhaps, will have to investigate. "Fix Editor" still presents, on the second page.

I installed Era 2.4 on new, fresh, SOD complete version, and i put executables files in DEP but i got the same error. I restarted computer and then i got the same error. I turned off DEP, i restart the computer and ... again, the same error. With map editor is the same, the same error. SoD Complete works fine, WoG 3.58 works fine, campaign editor works fine. What can i do? I am a big fan of WOG and HoMM3 and now i see that era is what i want, like all HoMM3 fans. But this error drives me crazy!

i'm pretty sure i installed on clean h3 complete. i actually turned the old version into  a rar file before installing the new and deleted it. In 2.4, the map editor has some objects, like commanders for instance, already there. 2.3's map editor didnt have those, that's what led me to search for an objects patch and to the forum in the first place. So are you saying although the editor has the new objects we should still apply the new objects patch?


2- about plague month, especially thanks very mucn if it was just for me, but since it was optional i see no harm in keeping it, if it's trouble all you do is click a button. i kind  of felt happy about it because i felt like it was my contribution to the game: all wog players around the world were going to be able to choose to play with plague if they wanted, and i had a part in it. But this is your work (and great work indeed) of course and i respect the final decision if it's to keep it out.

What concerns the patch, I would have to update manuals (including Russian) and later support players who turned it on and found some scripts/maps not working. Sorry )

By the way, you have Windows 7, 64 bits, right?

Khadras, I need a screenshot of DEP settings, of h3era compatibility settings, and please write down path to game.

no, i normaly use OS X 10.8. there is a boot camp partition and windows xp proffesional is installed. i use windows only for games (mostly heroes 3) and torrents (much faster). i havent switched to windows 7 because wog classic displayed with wrong aspect ratio and there was no way to fix it. havent checked it with era 2 or hd mode though. my laptop has win7 installed, will try in a few days. still, xp is stable and simple, it's maybe better for a mac guy.
