i have all the versions of Forge, myself. what i need isn't among any of them. what i need, exact replicas, have to be made from scratch. or at least, with a better understanding(or version) of photoshop than myself; because i need to fill in what needs to be cut out(over/underexposed areas of the town castles and town/city halls/capitol), with something that looks just like the rest of the walls and defs. i'm not going for a hack job here; but professional(ist) work. i can't mix and match things with a project that won't visually coalesce into one united graphical display.

era, the same platform i use. it doesn't matter which platform, though; because that's not going to make a difference when it comes to graphical quality.

i already made myself perfectly clear, man.

----
i've isolated the old Forge creature scripts, and am now currently working on fixing them(as the creature lineup is being rearranged to what was originally intended by NWC). once i am done, i'll make them their own erm file for the mod.

edit: done with the Forge creature scripts(barring what i asked in the erm thread, anyway). also made the erm file for them.

it makes no sense to make a city change, if you can make additions

@fred79 Have you thought about contacting Forge artists from Acid Cave? They probably still have the 3D models of the buildings. I understand their Fort doesn't look 100% same as the NWC's Forge, but it shouldn't need many tweaks to pass for the original thing.

Witchking, Nephretes, Hobbit and avatar browse HC.

I know that Don_Komandor shared some of his graphics with the MDT members, but I don't know which ones specifically.

i have don ko's expansive townscreen work already, along with some other stuff; and i stay in regular touch with neph and avatar. the vcmi townscreen(especially the castle) is vastly different from what i'm working on, tho. and besides, neph and avatar are doing a ton of their own project work. we're all three as busy as a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest, lol.

i don't have any contact with any members elsewhere, that aren't regulars here. hc is the only place i have an account, besides da.

I think Forge screen was made by witchking and Trith. I can show them your post but can't promise anything.

That's a classic of life, always everything at the same time. But imo it means all is right, real drama is when you have nothing to do.

currently reordering the creature sounds, while i wait for scripting help. if i don't get any, then i'll just do everything else i can with the mod before putting it on hold again.

i can't get era 2 to work without issue for the life of me; no matter what i do, i always have problems with it. i probably shouldn't have tried running anything new on it yet, because i had running problems with the original version, even before i tried adding anything else to it; which i had forgotten, until now.

added the fixed sounds to the heroes3.snd file. now i'll start on switching the creatures out for the correct order.

edit: i almost have all the creatures ready for the changeover. i have to create the projectile for the dreadnaught artillery, and then find where i put the avwattak frames for everything, and then all can be transferred. i will have to run tests on the projectiles(make sure they are angled correctly/script what needs to be scripted so that the game doesn't crash or have missing shot animations upon firing), and recolor the dreadnaught artillery after that. once that's done, i can fix the stats and names in the text files, and then move on to the dwelling swap-out.

well this scenario allowed me to install era 2 properly:
- prepare fresh copy of heroes 3 complete (i.e. one from gog.com)
- install era 2.7.3 into same path
- install matching version of HD-Mod (so the version of patcher_x86.dll is the same).
- in wog mod disable (rename) scripts folder (the one with lua scripts) so it doesn't conflict with HD mod

then to use properly:
- each mod have separate folder (or at least don't push it to same folder as wog mod)
- enable and disable mods only with era mod manager
- do not use save with other set of mods than it was saved
- do not use mod manager for setting wog options as it sometimes corrupt settings.dat

i'll do all that once i get the forge stuff updated. maybe i missed a step or something there; it's been forever since i installed era 2. thanks.

one issue i'm going to have with the era 2 changeover, is that my campaign maps i plan on releasing all work off of my era 1.8 game files(which doesn't have the fredobj patch installed; because i don't use the fredobj patch in my h3sprite.lod). so i guess, when i release my campaign maps, i'll have to release the contents of my h3sprite.lod in the pac folder, or everything will be screwed.
