Hello Moritzbradtke,

Thanks for the reply but all I can find relates to the map editor. If I use that to change heroes portraits will they be updated for the game or just a specific map?

Cheers,

Hello Laz3456;

It probably depends on how exactly you do it in editor, but you should be able to it there for the whole game.

yes of course, only possible through map Editor... at last if ure no expert in such stuff but then u woudnt ask (: it is easier to do an own map and create own hereos, if u want to Change it for the whole game it is more difficult but also possible, there are several modding tutorials from People who are good at it and wrote it down, i'm still working on my own Scenario map because These can be really cool but it takes some time to create something good

@LizardWarrior, how do u do this?

"You're not ready yet, don't forget to replace the GameFolder/MMH7Game/CookedPc/Editor/Templates/H7Heroes.upk file with your new one!" after u've copied and changed something? do i Need extra Software like the UE Viewer for this or can i do it with the Standard H7 Editor Software? THX (:

You need to replace the original file with the one you just made.

Manually replace files, "hard" modding isn't officially supported.

I'm so sorry but how do i manually replace them D: I know this sounds stupid but i have to ask lol, i read ure hero edit tutorial and i can work with own maps but it sounds so easy in that tutorial but maybe it isnt, do i probably Need more Software to "hard mod" something like replacing hereos or enable campaign hereos in skirmish maps in General or just for changing game paramenters

Navigate to the folder where you made your file, rename it to whatever file you want to replace, then move that file inside the CookedPC/WhereTheOriginalFileIs and replace the original.

I don't know if Lizard said it but it's a good idea to backup original upk before replacing it, just in case.

If you can't see the archetypes then you messed up with some references. Perhaps you didn't copy all data from the old .upk.

Fully load the package before copying the old data, you may miss some configuration files, then copy it. The second upk stays there, it holds all your new data, save it inside CookedPc.

The upk with your hero data like portraits and model just needs to be in cooked pc and it will work
