[Research/Tutorial] Switching Adventure Object images

This is about how to switch an adventure object image for another.

In this "tutorial" we will see how to change the Death magic book for the Chaos Magic one.

Extract your Heroes 4 files (use h4Util or whatever... see the modding thread for more info)

Then, open adventure objects on an hex editing program (I use Hex Editor Neo)

You will see something like this:

Copy one of the files, then put the header (marked sections) of the other in it.
Preferrably, make it two files of the same type to avoid mistakes (in this case, two artifacts).

-Then, rename the new file (image) with the name of the other object, the one you want to represent. For example, the file with the image of the Tome of Death, and the name and header of the Tome of Chaos.
-Add the ".h4d" type to the file.
-Put it in your Heroes data folder.

Listo! Now you will have a Tome of Chaos which looks like a tome of Death.

Example only

If you do it wrong, this will happen when opening a map:

If so, delete the file. Start over again and check for any errors in your procedure. You may come here for questions.

You could change your Tree of Knowledge to a Learning Stone, for example... in theory.
