Well I'm not really making a mod, just tweaking some things to make the game a bit more fun for me. Almost everything I know I've learned on this thread; it's all here...somewhere...

That's an interesting idea. I'll have to play a bit more and see how it is.

If you tell me what you would like to change I might be able to help.  


Well what i am doing is't a MOD per se either, i'm doing the same as you or phoenix4ever for example.

I hope that town portal change works for you aswell.

Right at this moment i am not doing anything on H3 but maybe soon i'll get to it again and i may ask your help, thank you

Greetings to everyone!

I would like to ask for some help. There are castle walls, towers, and gates during the siege of the castle. Where can the coordinates of the pieces of the castle wall be modified in the exe? I was thinking of the dungeon and the stronhold castle.

Is it possible to "merge" skills?
For example I think Ballistics is way too situational and First Aid is pretty bad, so I thought about merging the two. If it's possible how will it affect First Aid specialists for example?

How about merging Ballistics, First Aid and Artillery aswell?
The three items all in one skill doesnt't sound too bad, it would be a nice upgrade.

Nah, three skills in one is too much. But maybe another merge could be Artillery + Archery.

=> 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

This is pointer to your %, one I used is 10% in SoD, didn't check HotA.


It's been quite some time, but has anyone managed to change the percentage of Wizard's Well in HotA?
I tried the above, but I don't think it works with current version of HotA.
I would like to have WW recover 10% or 20% mana. (+6 mana from the indiviual artifacts)

Several of you have written why First Aid Tent is at the Necropolis Towns. I replaced it with Ballista. When I enter the blacksmith's shop, I still have First Aid Tent for 750 gold. Where can I change to have a Ballista in a blacksmith?

Check the discussion on page 5 of this very thread. It contains a lot of information about this very aspect.

As we also concluded back then, switching Castle's Blacksmith is impossible, as it's linked to Stronghold's Ballista Yard. I guess I could do Inferno/Dungeon, or perhaps Necropolis/Dungeon, but it seems like a big hassle.

I've shown how to condense the code for blacksmiths, you can do pretty much whatever you want, just keep track of the addresses of each town and you're golden.

If the Wizard's Well patch doesn't work, it means HotA has a patch there or maybe there is a transcription error in what you wrote; when I tested it under SoD all was fine.

Greetings guys!

I can replace the war machines. Although I modify the war machines, the blacksmith still has the original war machine. For example, in the conflux castle, I'm changing the ballist into a first aid tent. But in the blacksmith you can still buy the ballista for 2,500 gold. I buy the "ballista", but the hero already has a first aid tent. That is, to buy a first aid tent for 2500 gold! :-)

Could anybody do a modification to make magog's fireball just hurt enemies? That would make magog more useful I think.

"Has anyone managed to change the hero specialty icons in HotA?"

Graphically, or according to the program?

Dear Phoenix4ever!

The DATA folder contains the "HotA.lod" file. Open the "HotA.lod" file with mmarchive! Save the "un44" and "un32" DEF files.

Use DefPreview to extract the "un44" and "un32" DEF files. The icons will be in the "bmp" image format and can be changed.

You can use the "H3DefTool" program to repackage icons in DEF format. The modified "un44" and "un32" must be put back into the "HotA.lod" file using the "mmarchive" program.

Dear Peter.
Thanks, I tried this before, but I did'nt succeed. Guess I could try again, if I feel like it and have the time.
