h3mtool: Convert AB/SoD maps to RoE, HD Edition space bar mod & RMG

h3mtool is deprecated and succeeded by h3mconvert and HDE Mod available here. (HC thread: http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=41548)

Thanks to everyone who has supported and contributed to the development of h3mtool. Everyone who has contributed is mentioned in the Credits of HDE Mod and listed in the source code repository:

Core Features:
* HD Edition Random Map Generator integration (if you specify path to a H3 Complete installation, you can get integration of the RMG into HD Edition when you start new game)
* AB/SoD/WoG->RoE map conversion, convert any maps to HD Edition compatible RoE format
* HD Edition Object Re-visit (re-visit objects with space bar like in AB/SoD)
* HD Edition Quick Combat Re-play (press Escape at Quick Combat battle result screen to re-play that battle without Quick Combat)
* HD Edition No Sound Delay (removes delay when e.g entering battles)
* HD Edition Extra Hotkeys (for swapping/moving all artifacts/creatures in hero trade screen)
* HD Edition FPS Increase (increases framerate)
* HD Edition System Cursor fix (completely replace game's cursor rendering with lag-free system cursor. Ubisoft integrated this fix in Patch 3)
* HD Edition XXL Maps fix. Ability to play non-standard sized maps, e.g XXL 252x252

Note that some of these maps have not yet been patched for balancing/other fixes and the ones that have can be tweaked further. This is an initial BETA release.

I'm ready to pay for a tool which converts WoG to SoD and classic versions to each other.

Well, the underlying code has been written with future support for WoG and other modifications in mind. This tool so far does AB->RoE and SoD->RoE. Further into the future it is also not impossible to achieve H2<->H3 conversion.

Dat's a serious deal.

We have a converter tool which transfers H2 terrains to h3m, but nothing farther than that.

Converting WoG to SoD and SoD to AB/RoE would be a huge assistance for the succession wars mod map list, since we are going to release v0.8 in this year.

I'll probably buy the game when this tool will allow WoG <-> RoE convert, or when they'll give support themselves for more versions. As it is now I don't think it's worth it.

We need it for graphical consistency and convenient maps sorting. H3SW features H1, H2, H3 and new H3SW maps at the same time (overall 4 formats). The trouble is that all our new maps were saved as WoG when we didn't plan such a graphic improvement.

Rough prototype:

Wonderful, I hope that in time you shall not be dissapointed.

Demonstration video for HD Edition features and tool download now available:

I expect this BETA version to perform poorly at converting non-standard set maps, however this can mostly be greatly improved without a lot of effort when debugging against any incompatible maps (this has been the process to get conversion of all standard maps working). Usually it currently commits seppuku by explicitly dereferencing some 0xDEADC0DE-style pointer when it encounters something unexpected.

I've downloaded converted map pack, tried to play multiplayer (hotseat) but most of the Allied maps teams are messed. E.g Most of the maps don't have enemies at all.

That's because you'll have to fix the players by yourself. The tool doesn't do that for you.

They decided to lock the game at 33 fps, if you guys somehow could unlock it to make the mouse actually perform as it's supposed to do, i'd gladly give you a tip.

What does it have to do with the map format converting utility or RMG?

It doesn't but since someone showed some interest in modding this steaming pile of snow they might aswell try to fix some other issues if possible.

New version and new converted AB/SoD maps set available now. The 26 maps that were missing from the last converted set upload have been fixed to be HD Edition compatible and are now included. Also, the Allies bug reported by Merkuri (thanks man) has been fixed. The tool aims to convert everything, so anything that is not/is incorrectly converted is a bug and so I appreciate any bug reports.

Download new h3mtool 0.2 BETA:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/bcp00l

Download new HD Edition compatible AB/SoD complete 113/113 maps set (last set had 87 maps):
https://www.sendspace.com/file/x6aq1z

Full Changelog:
BETA 0.2:
* Fixed conversion of team settings (thanks Merkuri for bug report!)
* Fixed map patches for Allies maps
* Added Selectable towns feature to HD RMG integration
* Fixed HD Edition compatibility for ALL AB/SoD maps. Pandora's Box.h3m works in-game in HD Edition but not in the Map Editor of HD Edition

New video and more details coming soon.

As Orzie has pointed out there are some issues with converting players. This is due to the fact that there are some pretty vast differences in how town types are represented between RoE and AB/SoD (even AB and SoD are not the same as each other, but closer). Right now it seems to me that for some configurations, the player structure simply cannot be converted to RoE using only information from there. Tomorrow I will look at making code that peers into the object section to solve this. Random Hero objects placed right outside of towns also come into play here.
