This may sound like a dumb question, but what are we supposed to do with the sources download? is it necessary to put in the Typhon mod folder and if so, where?

Source is... source code written in one of the programmaning languages and it is for programmers who know this language enough to make changes.

haha ok, that's out of my league lol!  thank you!

I was asking because I'm having difficulty adding >5 units to the mod.   with 4, it can handle it no problem.  I've set the options.ini to 600 (just to be safe).  Once I add more than 5 the game cannot start and I get an error show up. Has anyone else had this issue too?

I'm using the HD mod 5.0 RC53

from top-bottom:

Typhon
My mod
xxl
wog

EDIT=====I could post the error log but its really long and i didn't want to fill up the page lol

update=====
So by coincidence, I left an empty space at the bottom of the Za/Ze/Zo objects files and now it works fine.  I don't have any understanding of how these programs work, but if that explanation makes sense to others who know more about programming than I do, then great.  hopefully problem solved

Hello it's me again. So I've added over 100 new creatures and tested them, they all seem to work with the exception of 4.  My next step is to make dwellings for them.  I'll probably group many together cause it took me a long time to add each creature in lol.  

How can I open the dwelling.dll file? I saw the english translation. I'm not too sure about the method.  I can add the image into mapmaker and sequence it like another dwelling except change the number but i don't know how to activate that dwelling number into a dwelling for each unit.  is there a video link showing this as well?

umm battery2 is here

if you wish to use it as plugin you need only battery2.dll
if you want source code it is also there

it has all functions of battery plus some more. 75% credits goes to Master of Puppets for original plugin, I just rewritten it to c++ and added possibility to use it  for  another buildings.

EDIT:  I would be happy if MoP would use my new version by default


Is this version of battery compatible with the new versions of ERA II?

I managed to insert a creature with typhon, it is not inserted on random maps, you have to insert it manually through the editor, how come you can't see it? I declared it in zaobjt, zeobjt, zobjts, cprsmall, twcrport, on typhon in pic, singular and plural name and set the status in Mcredit, did I forget something?

planetavril , for a creature to appear on the map, you must also record the number of objects in zaobjct, zeobjct, and zobjct. For example, here it indicates that I have 1504 lines of objects written, if I write another line for the creatures in the adventure map it will be 1505



Try using object editor to verify if it is spelled correctly zaobjct, zeobjct and zobjct, remember that the Creatures use two def, one for battles and one for the adventure map.

If you did everything correctly and it isn't generated then it's normal, if there are few dwellings or few creatures, they are never generated, it's recommended that you add more creatures and you will see that it works.

Hello I have 2 questions:

1) I'm trying to make another unit like Faerie Dragons, so i copied and pasted the Faerie stats into my new monster.  I changed the attack/defense, health, speed etc.  but kept all the spell related stats.  For some reason, the unit only casts the 000summonboat spell during combat instead of the random damage spell as it should.  Are Faerie dragons unique that they can't be replicated?

2) in the magic column, beneath there are mode 1-3 and mode 1-9.  Is there a legend somewhere I can find what each setting will do?

"Random spell" is the name of the method, or rather, the nickname of the code branch in exe. There is no real chance to set up random spells for a monster. You can only install one from the list.
So it is not possible to make an offensive spell caster like the Fairy Dragon. You can only make existing combinations in Typhon, here is an example:
Resurrection mode 1-mode 1: Resurrection Archangel Style.
Random Friendly Spells mode 2-mode 2: Random Friendly Spellcaster Genie style.
Resurrection mode 1-mode 3: Resurrection Pit Lord Style (you must specify the creature you want to summon from a deceased ally in "Demonology")
Friendly Spell mode 2-mode 4: Friendly Spellcaster Ogre Mage style
Random Damage Spell mode 3-mode 9: Offesive Spell Caster (you must specify whether or not the type of offensive spell, the innate ability of Dragon Faeries is hardcoded like that of Enchanters).

We have a channel specifically about Typhon on Discord if you want to know more.

Is there a way to fix the commander description issue?

Tested on both typhon and typhonz and got the same result.
