I have some questions related with the plugin:

What exactly fixes "AI fast Battle Bugs" check box?
And how exactly works "Quick Combat Overflow"?



Quick Combat Overflow
+ if a hero has a large army, damage can overflow to be negative. This caps it at 2^31 - 1 and prevents weird scenarios where a very strong hero would lose to random mobs.
+ similarly, negative damage could sometimes give creatures to a hero
+ it also breaks an infinite loop where ai thought it would get negative experience

AI fast Battle Bugs
+ fixes a bug where an ai hero could lose all of its creatures during combat without updating its army strength and therefore creating a ghost hero.

Originally, this was used to re-enable a bug introduced by a specific version of HDmod. Upon further reflection, I decided to remove it as it was against the spirit of the project.

Also a reminder and a favor to make a checkbox for Fairie Dragons infinite spell abuse.

Good thing you reminded me, it was not on any of my to-do lists
I'm still not certain when I will finish the editor api modifications which is the bottleneck into fully adding new options at the moment. I might just add it to the game and the editor can wait... we'll see.

v1.19.3.9


Version 1.19.3.9
[+] Player behaviour set in the Editor is now correctly set for the AI (thanks Kotcat92)
[-] Shortened [Lang][RUS][combat][resurrected_hit_points] entry which was often cut off (thanks aolshevskiy)
[-] Finished fix of random artifact sprites that ended up as Combination Artifacts (see 1.19.3.8)
[-] Temporarily removed fix that removed Faerie Dragon's spell button when inactive (see 1.19.3.4)
NOTE: this is only until I finish some work on the editor which currently prevents an update there


I will try to get the editor in a working state to fix the last issue on both the editor and game sides, which means making an option that can be toggled as this bug is used in some maps.

As always, thank you to the community for reporting these issues so that they may be fixed for everyone

Eeeek, seems I bundled the wrong DLL.

I've been testing 1.19.3.10 for a while so I did not notice this previously.

I'll downgrade the version on the server so the message popup goes away for now until the next version is ready.

v1.19.3.10


Version 1.19.3.10
[+] Introducing [other][Development] option to tryout some fixes/enhancements before they are added as regular options
NOTE: these cannot be toggled in-game; the default value is OFF.
[+] [Development] Remove Faerie Dragon's spell button when inactive (see 1.19.3.9, 1.19.3.4)
[+] [Development] Modified generation of heroes to reduce repetitive cycle odds
[+] [Development] Winning hero left with only alive creatures that are either: clones, summons or stacks resurrected
without appropriate magic level should have their rightmost resurrected stack get one creature revived.
NWC didn't exclude clones or summons so this condition is always be false
NOTE: recently implemented by HDmod but without an off switch which impedes legacy maps.
By turning this option off, original bug will persist ==> [other][Development] = 0
[+] Fixed a bug in tavern where right hero wouldn't have its portrait shown, potentially crashing (thanks Nikos)
[+] Fixed an ai-ai battle rounding error issue that could result in creature gain [FastBattleBugs] (thanks Nikos)
[+] Sound headers are now sorted at runtime. Samples are retrieved using binary search
[-] Fixed internal version error
[-] Fixed a bug in BattleQueue for Catapult
[-] Fixed some bugs introduced by refactor that resulted in incorrect spell information in the spellbook


So... I didn't have time to work on the editor. In the meantime, I've decided to implement the [Development] tag which is available in SoD_SP.ini under the [other] section. It cannot be toggled while in game, a reboot is required. If you encounter any issues with these, you're more than welcome to signal them.

Yes.

...

Kidding aside, it was poorly explained in the previous posts. I had modified the way versioning works to use a single version throughout the entire project (previously there were 2 for reasons) but I forgot one reference which was used to compare against the data read from the server.

OK, it looks like the *newest* version of the plugin actually doesn't have any new things in it except the name of the folder...

Rose, are you sure you didn't bundle the wrong DLL again?

Since you are doing bug fixes, can you include the fix of the armorer bug? So far, after every installation of the HD mod it needs to be fixed manually using a hex editor.

The Armorer Bug was discussed here: http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=35609

It wasn't. I just installed zhe game on my new PC, installed the HD mod and used a Hex Editor.

It is fixed in the GoG Version (which I installed), but the HD mod re-introduces the armorer bug.

Uhh .. this is my fault. I mistook the thread for the SoD_SP Plugin for the HD mod.

The bug is re-introduced by the HD mod, not the SoD_SP plugin. Sorry for the confusion.

fly bug

Some time ago I found that AI behavior with fly spell is incorrect. AI can't use this spell and even more, it freezes and stops exploring the map after getting fly. From what I discovered by myself it's HD+ problem. I wrote to Baratorch but unfortunately no answer from him. So maybe it's possible to fix the problem in SoD_SP.

Thanks for reporting this, there is a modification in HDmod where fly is supposed to be disabled on small maps, however it is clearly bugged and automatically fails when used by AI.

EDIT:


Version 1.19.3.11
[+] Fixed a bug where artifacts could be transferred between custom maps (thanks maddayman)
[+] Disabled hdmod bug (HWrulez) that prevented AI to cast Fly (thanks Marlo_Stanfield)
