I know it's normal, I just thought it would be different, but now I know. And yes, it occured in only one battle, today I'll check more. Maybe there's something wrong with Troglodytes?...

Some of the new artifacts are very good and creative. I especially like the Ring of Oblivion (disables resurrection and animate undead if I got it right) and the new diplomat set that enables to surrender to neutral creatures. Btw, in the description of the artifact neutral is spelled netral, just a small typo but I thought I'd mention it so it can get fixed.

Another small typo? 2.5% looks kinda like 25% because of the fronts. That's no front space between '.' and '5'.

Also, there's new options to in the map editor.

Monster/plague weeks on/off (nice!)

New victory conditions.

Survive for a specific time / eliminate all monsters

This is really cool.

Two campaign questions. Are you planing to add support for the original Heroes 3 campaigns, or maybe even the Heroes Chronicles campaigns (so that HotA detects when they’re installed and then shows them in the game menu)? It’d cool to play them with HotA bug fixes and improvements. Will the HotA campaign intros get a voice-over at some stage?

And one more thing. The Cove puzzle map looks really nice, but I think it could be improved to look even more like the original puzzle maps. It lacks the texture of original puzzles (e.g. the characters' clothes are just filled with patches of color) and this old-school dithering effect. Also, some lines connecting the puzzles could be more black and conspicuous. You can compare, for example, the Cove and Castle puzzle maps to see what I’m talking about.

Okay, this bug with Troglodytes and fireball doesn't want to work now. Maybe it was just me. I'll let you know if something similar happens again.

Thanks for your attention anyway, I hope map editor bug will be fixed soon!

And now it is out finally.
Good news, I didn't think it will go out so soon.
New resources for VCMI modding arrived
At least there are new stages of town looks on map. For me it's good feature.

Hell, it's about time.
Thanks for all the work you've done HotA team. I wish you great success in your next work (if there is more that is... then again if you stop here it's perfectly fine because all this work you've done until now is phenomenal )

Also, PLEASE someone sticky this and unsticky the other thread.

Crash report. Map editor, crash/error when generating random maps.

Crash log

Info:

When trying to generate any random map through the editor, the editor will either crash or give the error 'unable to generate map'. I tried with different settings size/template/underground, but it'll either crash or error every time.

But ogres have yellow eyes. Which creature (or otherwise) are you referring to?

I like the pig nose and teeth on the button one, but such things are tiny details and I'm not complaining about it. I have not much to say about the eyes, though.

Is there anywhere a changelog or an English discussion regarding the changes HotA brings?

I must confess I had my doubts about the quality of this project (mainly because of lack of info, communication and countless months of missing English translation). But the result is above expectations! It brings a long overdue breath of fresh air to H3.

So...

- How much damage you do with bad luck? 1/2 the damage?
- What was changed in Necropolis. (Amplifier is now at 5%, Ghaltran is gone).
- What was changed in Conflux?
- What was changed in Inferno?
- Are Cavaliers still upgradable at stables?
- Will we see cover of darkness in random maps?
- Diplomats suit, will neutrals flee 3x more readily?
- Why is Eagle Eye untouched?
- Is anyone straming HotA?

Most of other games come up with balance patches from time to time. Is this in the scope of HotA? Should we expect changes in the future?

Marvellous. Thank you so much!

Changelog can be found here:
http://forum.df2.ru/index.php?showtopic=27888&st=0&p=543379&

Google translation is pretty understandable.

Seems like team, that are so obsessed about "quality", simply hastened release. I see many reports of crashes and bugs here and there.
Seems it was better to do additional testing.
First HOTA beta release was not so buggy.

@Macron1 I've seen many of your posts in this forum (in other threads as well) and I disagree with you on any issues. There is an old Polish proverb (maybe its etymology is different and it is only translated into Polish, but I felt it inculcated from childhood): "do not make mistakes, only those who do nothing." Therefore you are always perfect!

I added my post with log to help authors and not that of even the slightest criticism.
