Sorry, I don't have those bytes anywhere in that order...

Any chance of finding it in the - I hate using this phrase - vanila .exe?

If you can't find that string in the vanilla .exe, then you're boned.

I have something that look very similar:

      Starting from 0

0B8770 - E8 8B 22 F9 FF
could this be it? I shall give it a try.

And here:

0B87A1: 89 - there must be other bytes near this 89...

Makes me curious where the GP/XP values are stored.

You can't change those values directly, because they are hardcoded in instructions. But you can rewrite those instructions, for example, this way:

Gold (A6262)
Write there the following instructions:
BA F4 01 00 00 F7 EA 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90,
where the blue part is the Gold multiplier (500 by default).

Experience (A60C5)
Write there the difference between Gold and Experience (4 bytes, -500 by default). For example, -400 = 70 FE FF FF. Of course, it also can be a positive number.

So in "vanila" the Creatures accumulate are at:

B8AA1 89 0F 8B 06 8B 1D B0 47 67 00 - changing the 89 to 01 does the trick.

Thanks BTB again, you are awesome!

Sadly I couldn't find the guards accumulate.

The treasure chest is in complete disarray.

Alex, are there any other bytes in

C1AEB at 5F
C1B02 at 02

Just curious.

And one more question for today...
Is there a way I can add 2 extra secondary skill slots?

Thank you all again for being so helpful. Respect!

Instructions are slightly different in SoD and Complete, so knowing more bytes can't always help you.

You require ERA/WOG for that. There is no such option in HotA.

Hi all,

Just wanted yo know if there's a possibility to edit the combo artifacts, for example by the Cloak of yhe undead king, the type of undead re-animated; or by the angellic alliance - increases angel/archangel weekly generation by +3/week.

That's something else where the address in my guide is going to be wrong if you're looking at the vanilla executable.

You're guide is 80% vanila correct. Tried it out last night. But as far as combo artifacts go, it's a no-go 🤣😂

Hopefuly we can find something. What bytes did you have say for Cloak of the undead king? For example...

I made CotUK always produce Skeleton Warriors.
With HotA and HD mod you need:
E3F1F: 40 -> 39
E3F2A: 3C -> 39
E3F33: 3A -> 39
I suggest always banning Galthran with this change.

For BTB:

the Artifacts for Statue of Legion are as follows in the vanila .exe:


Legs of Legion                                (Default String)
1BFA37 - 84 C0 74 06 83 C7 XX 90 90 90        All strings form your
1BFA53 - 84 C0 74 07 83 C7 XX 90 90 90 90     http://btb2.free.fr/misc/h3_hacking.txt are correct

Loins of Legoin
1BFA74 - 84 C0 74 06 83 C7 XX 90 90 90
1BFA90 - 84 C0 74 04 83 C7 XX 90

Torso of Legion
1BFAAE - 84 C0 74 06 83 C7 XX 90 90 90
1BFAC6 - 84 C0 74 07 83 C7 XX 90 90 90 90

Arms of Legion
1BFAE7 - 84 C0 74 05 83 C7 XX 90 90
1BFAFE - 84 C0 74 04 83 C7 XX 90

Head of Legion
1BFB1C - 84 C0 74 03 83 C7 XX
1BFB31 - 84 C0 74 03 83 C7 XX

Now what is the default string at the Statue of Legion?
1C0082
1BFC46

@PhoenixForever

E3F1F:

Hmm why do you ask for a 4-6 byte string when you only need to change 1 byte at three different places?
1F was liches. (Expert Necromancy)
2A was wights. (Advanced Necromancy)
33 was walking dead. (Basic Necromancy)
Don't you have what I mentioned at those addresses?
