Anyone else having problems with the template files in Win10?

Weirdest thing, I save the rmg.txt in a new folder under templates. But it doesnt show up in windows explorer, at all. It's like it's not there. But when I then try to open it again through the RMG editor it's magically there again.

I tried check disk and reboot. But nothing. Anyone?

Maybe you placed it just in "HotA_RmgTemplates" folder, not in "HotA_RmgTemplates[Template name]"?


Nope, that's not it.

I tried uninstalling HotA completely now, and deleted the HotA folder.
After reinstalling all my settings are still there, and the template I made has reappeared! WTF!? I deleted everything!

Where else on the HDD does HotA hide stuff?

Are you sure you are not working on a different install folder than the one you launch heroes from ? (it happens to me all the time )

Thanks, but no I don't think so. I've uninstalled again and am searching the computer for anything HotA related but can't find anything. Until I reinstall "clean", and all the old stuff magically appear again. Must be hidden away somewhere.

Is the Hota team thinking to implement in the future measures against cheating?(editing or codes)

It seems to have become harder to score above 400. I hadn't played in a while but once 1.5.0 came out I started playing again and after finishing a couple of maps I haven't scored above 400 on any of them. I loaded up an old save which was made on the map Maelstrom right before finishing off the last hero (on which I got 442) but this time I only got 382. Obviously the scores are calculated differently but I haven't seen anything about it.

Perhaps I missed this in the documentation but I'll ask anyway what has been changed in the scoring calculation?

Yes, the score calculation was changed. Now it stronger depends on day count, it also depends on map difficulty and map size and weaker depends on grail. The formula is complex enough, but to win more score you should complete the map as fast as possible, and try to capture all the towns (like in original game, but slower game now penalized stronger, and in case of fast game each single day makes difference).

The main point was to make score more fair, and make it really hard to get the strongest creatures. For example, now it is impossible to get easy Archangel on the map like Good to Go.

Big thanks. That explains it.

Depending on what's your graphical toolkit this may not be esay to fix: RMG Template Editor and Mapeditor don't scale on HiDPI screens (icons and other UI elements).

Is it intended that Luck can be casted on Fangarms but Mirth cannot?

Fangarms are immune to mind, and Mith is mind spell (Fortune isn't).

You mean, icons and text menus are too small ?
I don't have a 4k screen, so I'd be interested if you can send me a screenshot.

Sure, will do. I will free up some space on my disk and install Win in order to be sure it's not a Wine thing.

Don't know anything about you, people but, HoTA is a masterpiece onto itself, so far.

Plus, the compatibility bonus we are having at this very moment is truly remarkable(making an HD file of HoTA is quite a pleasant experience).

Moreover, this mod. has a sustainable future at keeping Heroes 3 of Might and Magic completely relevant to any existing or even new TBS gaming afficionados.

Now, all we need is a bunch of excellent code tweakers that would accept to start at making all kinds of modifications to both Heroes 6 and, obviously, Heroes 7.

Good Work Team!

From what I can understand, this is a post about Heroes CCG idea of yours, it looks interesting, but I don't see how it has any relevancy to the Hota subject, so I'd rather recommend you to post this in a different subforum, presumably Other Games Exist Too

RMG template editor stores your settings in windows registry under
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Heroes 3 HotA\RMG Template Editor

It contains window geometry, window state (maximized or not), files history, grid options, and the address of last directories used to load/save templates.

I'll try again. Is it possible we'll get new creature in next patch, or 2019 is the soonest date?
