Salamandre I think he meant to say it was accessible since it came along with the HD mod, so all you had to to was like turn on the features/mods and download from the HD mod platform? It's been a long time since I last played the hd mod so i'm not sure.

I thought mine wouldn't update because i ended up modifying the game stats with hex editor but apparently you guys are having the same problem too. Uninstalled 1.4.2 and installed the newest one, no problem.

I have a little problem with new map "with sword and fire"

how to defeat them without losing even 1 unit? their dmg is always 10-12 and 1 centaur dies but then you can not go through the mission guard, becouse you must have 40 centaurs, not 39 xD
so the map is not playable?

Aren't the enemies and your starting army randomized? I started with wood elves and had to fight cerebri and some other creatures...

I think you two should click on "post reply" rather than "quote", you know why

Now I see what you mean. I think you're right, there is no way to not lose 1 centaur in that fight. Perhaps someone of the HOTA staff could chime in?

Serious question to Sav, nik312 or someone else from HotA Crew lurking here.

Are you planning version 1.5.2 or 1.5.1 is final for now?

Strange question as 1.5.1 just released. I would imagine 1.5.2 would only be planned if there are some serious bugs found.

It's possible to pass if you take a defensive stance and raise your defense (enough?). I'm not sure if you need to do it only once or several times. I'm not sure it accumulates. However, after splitting the Centaurs into two stacks using one as bait I kept taking a defensive stance until I felt courageous enough to attack and when it retaliated I didn't lose a unit. So it's definitely possible. And probably in a smoother way than I managed to do it.

Now I have to beat lots of Nymphs and one Oceanid stack with 4 Energy Elementals. Haven't gotten past that yet.

I tried it for over an hour, even with 2 times defending with a stack of 39 centaurs I get a minimum of 10 damage... I must be dense or it may be a matter of luck? (lucking out and getting 9 damage?)

With Sword and Fire

Hi, Begrezen! This is my map. So unfortunate that this happen. I make about 40+ tests of this map but boars never get together in one stack (12), they was always 4 4 4... What difficulty do you start with? I'll solve this problem in next update, thx for information, sorry.
Actually, it's still possible to beat them, if you press "wait" 1 turn and let them come closer, but it depends of luck. You need to hope that centaurs will kill 8 of them, and 4 boars will not kill 1 centaur in return. You can also try to wait, then go to the corner, and wait again, to refresh random factor.
