Is it possible to make Eagle Eye learn spells from enemy creatures and to learn spells immediately after they are cast, not after the battle??

There is a plugin for that, except learning spells from creatures.

I know that post but I have a question. What is this address: 0063EC80 (0023ECC0 in .exe)? Isn't that building dependencies in HotA? I edited it, and it works:

Right, but sadly newer versions of HD Mod does'nt support Plug-ins anymore and I would like to have the newest version for stability and bug fixes, but perhaps there is a way to do it myself...

What exactly do you mean? Do you mean to replace one Town with another, in the .exe file?

Just straight up, 375 in decimals is 101110111 in binary and 0177h in hexadecimals.

But before you're going to search for those values, you will need to know what you're looking for. Most of the games' variables, for instance, are using Little Endian byte representation format, which means that a hexadecimal value of 0177h is actually written as 7701h in the executable.

In first post you have Polish tutorial that contains info about changing coordinates. You should be able to understand it via Google Translate.

Mass Slayer: (Only at expert Fire Magic) Find 2871E4 in the exe and change 15 -> 45
Mass Magic Mirror: (Only at expert Air Magic) Find 2867CC in the exe and change 15 -> 45

You can change description of both in the sptraits.txt file, located in HotA_Ing.lod if you want.

List of buildings from ERM help should be helpful.

Okay it's nice enough with this building dependency list and it makes pretty good sense. But where do we find it in the exe, for example Pit Lord building or Sprite building??

It starts from Castle buildings. First is Mage Guilds, later Shipyard, Tavern and Brotherhood of the Sword (Castle special building) - 16 00 00 00 05 00 00 00. 16 (22) is building number, 05 (Tavern) means requirments.

If you have enough patience, this should be enough for finding whatever building you want.

Hmm so Brotherhood Of The Sword is building 22, but somehow 22 gets turned in to 16, does that mean I should subtract 6 from the building number every time? The 5 (05) is the Tavern requirement correct?

Hexadecimal number 16 is decimal number 22.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexadecimal

You can use Windows calculator to convert numbers. Also I'm sorry for such short answers but as you can see, I'm not good at writing in English.
