Oh sorry, I found it now. I thought it would be indexed as a .dll file, but it was listed as a program extension.
Now to find that text string...

Edit: Found it and tested it and it works perfectly.
The string starts at 00152640.

You have your Windows set to hide known extensions?

No, but I sorted the files by type and it did'nt show any .dll files, but apparently it was listed as a program extension, so no problem.

That must be a Win10 feature. If my files are not shown as a detailed list, I start panting and have to lie down on the floor and count to 10 to settle me down. I pity you.

Dear Karyoplasma!

Thank you, thank you, I've found it since! I missed the extra hero of the conflux town. Now I've done an extra hero that gives the Phoenix an attacking and defensive point!

I think we have talked about it before, but is it possible to change Wizard's Well so it gives no bonus at all (only the saved space when assembled) or a lower bonus like +10% mana? (In addition to the 6 mana from the normal artifacts.)

=> I had in mind to make the Wizard's well

Procedure starts at C7F60h... you're gonna need a hook for this because the procedure does (essentially)
if (max_mp > current_mp)
{ current_mp = max_mp}


Disable:
C7F5E = EB

Now that I look at it again, it might be possible to edit it to some other value.

EDIT starting at C7F5Fh
0E DB 45 F8 D8 0D 48 83 67 00 50 DB 1C E4 58 0F BF 1E 01 C3 90
This is pointer to your %, one I used is 10% in SoD, didn't check HotA.

Hello everyone.

I have a few ideas that I don't know how to implement that I'd like some help with. I want to:

-Make it so that each hero type is limited to a certain number of magic schools. For example, Knight/Barbarian>1, Alchemist/Battle Mage>2, Wizard/Warlock>4.

-Duration of spells determined by school level Bas>1/Adv>3/Exp>5. Not by Power.

-Power increases effect of certain spells like Stone Skin, Haste, etc by half of itself. For example, Hero with 10 Power casts Stone Skin with its effect increased +5.

-Tent casts Cure. I thought of replacing the Water Elementals spell casting through hex editing so that Tent casts Cure, would that work?

-Knowledge increases mana regeneration by its number. Example, 10 Knowledge= +10 mana regen.

-Sorcery increases Hypnotize, Resurrection, Animate Dead, Sacrifice (Maybe?)

Thanks!

Thanks again RoseKavalier

I decided to disable the bonus, the only thing it does now is save space in the inventory, but that makes Intelligence and Mysticism more useful and interesting.

I nominate RoseKavalier for a QP for continued help and support.

Noted, but if I keep doing that, his QPs will approach his number of posts in the long run . I try to use QPs sparingly, not dispense them like candy during Halloween .

While I appreciate the nomination, I agree with Maurice on this, there really wasn't much quality to that post or even that much work - besides I've already gotten one QP for continued support in this very thread. Still, thanks for your message.

0) by "some help with" what exactly do you mean
1) is this HotA?
2) do you feel like using plugins? cos you gonna have a bad time if the answer is no.
RoseKavalier said:
re: HotA editing questions
Please specify if you are planning on using plugins (HDmod 5.19 or less) or hex edit.

If it's the latter, I can already tell you that the answer will be no, it's not possible 80+ % of the time.


Also...

I don't really understand what Water Eles have to do with Tents. Tents don't cast spells, they roll a dice to figure out how much hp is restored.

Opening those spells to Sorcery would also open them up to Orb of Silt/ ... / +50% bonus. That's the way the function is coded.

What about Haste at power level 99? Should a Peasant really be faster than Phoenix?
There was a "similar" take on balancing spells in that their duration was cut down instead.

Well RoseKavalier, by "some help" I mean that I want to know if any of this is possible. I only know how to edit txt files and hex editing the exe a little, although I can learn of course...I would just like to know if its very complicated. The changes that are most important to me are the first two:

-Each hero type is limited to a certain number of magic schools. For example, Knight/Barbarian>1, Alchemist/Battle Mage>2, Wizard/Warlock>4.

-Duration of spells determined by school level Bas>1/Adv>3/Exp>5. Not by Power.

RoseKavalier said:

I play single player random maps on HOTA and I usually just use the basic templates, so I don't think I'll ever get to 99 Power heh. Also this is part of a pretty thorough change to many things including creatures, spells, secondary skills, heroes...anything that can be changed by txt or hex. At least for now.

From what I've read in this thread, plugins don't work on the latest version of HD. So I guess I'd have to get the older version to use them. But I like the changes in HOTA, so I don't know.

And finally, about the Tents: I thought, since they're also creatures, I would be able to use the space allocated to the Ice Elementals spell in the exe and replace with the tent casting Cure. I got that idea from something I had read earlier about changing the creatures abilities, but now I realize it wasn't talking about hex editing. So I guess it's not  possible.

Thanks for the reply!
