Is it possible to always give heroes maximum number of initial troops?  I know I could set the min and max in HOTRAITS.txt, but is it doable via modifying exe or dll?

There are 70 loop wav names pointers stored between 25F794h and 25F8A8h inclusively.

e.g.
0x65F794 (25F794h) points to 0x65FCE4 (25FCE4h) where you have written 'LoopAnim.wav' and so on as listed below.

If I'm not commenting it's due to any of the following (not limited) :
* it's already been answered previously
* it's too complicated with hex editing
* I didn't look at previous pages
* I only look at heroes3.exe

Would it be possible to have Admiral's Hat require the two scouting artifacts as well? (I think it's too easy to assemble in it's current form.) Alternatively have it give no bonus at all.

Is it possible to make Gold Dragons immune to level 1-5 spells?

Also would it be possible to add the area effect of Fireball to Expert Disrupting Ray, Hypnotize and Fire Shield?

Finally would it be possible to improve Land Mine, either by adding "end turn effect" when someone steps on it, making it possible to place the mines manually and/or making them invisible even to creatures with native terrain? (If possible I don't want it to affect Tower's Land Mines.)

Dear RoseKavalier
Can you perhaps answer any of the questions in my last post?, I would really appreciate it.
Or perhaps tell me if any of it is possible with hex editing?

Hi.
1. Is there the way to edit building requirements? (Hydra pond: Wyvern nest, Basilisk pit -> only Wyvern nest)
2. How to modify HYPNOTIZE duration? (1 Round const)

Modding the Unmoddable

Edited by NimoStar at 16:32, 27 Nov 2019.

Why does HD Launcher still SUPRESS plugin adding for HotA which was present in previous versions?

I think HotA team said they "did not intend" make any modifications... to their MODification of the original game. If such why not disable modding altogether, includiong HotA, since NWC didn't "intend" people to modify the original game. Why does a mod, quality as it may be, with few new assets and code get more purism than the NWC makers who did all the original code and assets and which never complained? It makes no sense. Plus, plugins aren't really mods on their own, and there are several plugins that were made for HotA in Russian forums for example, and which can't be used now due to some incomprehensible remove-feature policy for HD launcher.

For example, any other non-HotA modded exe has the possibility to add plugins.

Also, the launcher deliberatelŮy Refuses to recognize any "Modded" exe version of hota.

This is practically nothing short of DRM, the oppossite of modding spirit.



They even went all the way to make versions of the HD launcher previous to HotA plugin features removal unavailable to the public to download.

I updated the post some time ago for a mistake on my end, check again.

If you're playing with HDmod, this is not worth looking into with hex edit.

1. Look in thread, 0xFEA posted the base requirement lists and I posted a header to modify requirements as a plugin.
2. plugin

I'm not here to discuss other peoples' decisions but you can always use an older HDmod version which allows plugins or make your own loader. It's not like you get groundbreaking changes since the modification a bit before 5RC20; ERA uses an even older version and they do just fine.

1. Check the thread
2. 4A568h 05
3. No
4. No

To paraphrase myself
"Trying to add something that doesn't already exist in game under some format through hex editing is not going to happen".

Thanks RK

Gotta see if I can figure something out about Admiral's Hat and I will test the Gold Dragon Hex Patch soon.
Too bad about the spells, oh well.

Edited by peter1985 at 14:53, 01 Dec 2019.

I looked at the background sounds of the objects (loop). The sound of the building of the neutral units cannot be modified. The same sound is present in all but 4 Elementals. Is this modified in a dll file? I would like to connect the "LoopDrag.wav" sound to the Faerie Dragon, Rust Dragon, Crystal Dragon, Azure Dragon building. I want to associate the "LoopHors.wav" sound with the Nomad building and the "LoopDead.wav" sound with the Mummy building. Can you help me with this?

In 0004a663, change the number from 03 to 04 and then the Golden Dragon will be like the Black Dragon, immune to level 1-5 spells.
