That looks great. Have you also added or replaced spells with raise Gargantuan and Raise Dark Knights?

Yes, they will be put into use quickly.
Summon Gargantuan & Raise Dark Knight



Maybe there's something we'd like to see.

I hope all heroes have independent images. They are unique, rather than using creatures images.
Although it will be more complex.


omg that would be a huge project man! just check my robin hero. it was more than two days of hard work for only one stupid little hero sprite and there is 300+ more heroes in the game. screenshots

so did you just replace some spells with these or you managed to add new ones? that would be great to be able to do the latter.

Interesting work
Just replace.
All spells is divided into 24 areas.
There may be 4 vacant spaces left.
I haven't found how to add new spells for the time being

Well there are a few unused spells, Nemo enabled a few of them, like the hero freeze attack, but spell like Rock Growth isn't working, so those could be replaced.

The effects of any spells need to be defined
Freeze attack is in use.Refer to Potion of Cold.
This spell is only used in potion.We just let it appear in the magic tower.

Rock Growth can take effect.
Its effect is to create a stone on the battlefield.
It's actually an obstacle.


And some, such as Water walking,Bind flyer,Frozen,Mass Forget
They have already been designed.just not used

If you want to replace a spell, the effect must be the same.
For example, summon wolf,It can only be changed to summon other creatures instead of being bless.

afaik currently we can only make animations for heroes or we can replace some existing creatures with new ones. we need a programmer who can expanding the creature keyword table and can coding their abilities too to make more creatures. idk if its even possible or not, although the equilibris guys did expand the keyword list for creature banks and they coded new ones so i hope it will be possible. u r welcome

thx. the skeleton portraits on the screenshots are from radmutants portrait pack. theres a bunch of undead portraits in that file. i dont wanna making such gifs cause making of the animations was more than enough image editing for this week imo the screenshots are good enough to let you guys see what i made. anyone interested can test the hero on his own.

new hero

although I really like that animation,it gives more variety or dynamic to homm iv game.
1 question Mirage, what exactly must players do to play or use this skeleton hero?
We open skeleton file and then we extract the features or contents to homm iv main file ? Or player must use tools like res helper or hex editor...thanks in forward.

to play ityou will need a modified hero table so you must extract the table.heroes.txt from your text.h4r file with mh4win.

then open it in textedit and give the custom sprite to any hero you want:



and save it.

now just extract the skeleton hero.zip to some folder, paste the modified hero table into the same folder, and write its filename to the skeleton_hero.h4l file:



dont forget to change that 80 at the files top to 81



cause you just added +1 file to the list. and save it.

now build the h4l file with mh4win:



the result will be a skeleton_hero.h4r file in that folder. now if you dont play equilibris, just rename it as new.h4r and take it into your heroes4data folder. if you do play equilibris, you rename it new_mod.h4r instead.

and you can play it.

if you already have a new_mod.h4r for some reason, i recommend you to extract that file somewhere and paste there the files above and merge the text and numbers in their h4l files and build that new h4l file. then take it back to the data folder and you can play it again

i hope it will help you.

Mirage,you have my thanks for guidance and helping me,I will test that shortly,with little luck and knowledge I hope to succeed.
I am visiting and checking this lands of axeoth ever since Nimo succeded to make homm iv more interesting,also I really like this homm iv 3d graphic on combat map and overall,I hope and wish that someday players,fans or moder of homm iv like Karmakeld,Iliveinthebox,radmutant,and many others will find a way or a tool that will be able to change,add,replace,transfer objects,animations to homm iv game as in homm III...

When you put in the new action, you need to put in the appropriate boot file.

Battlefield action---combat_actor.XXX
Adventure Map action---adv_actor.XXX




such as might hero - Mongo
This boot file named combat_actor.hero.Mongo
So you can write Mongo in hero table and use the model named mongo.

The boot file defines all action files that need to be used.
The name of the file must be the same to be effective.



They are all h4d files and do not need to extend the name

kkfkkkfk, that would be great with an English version.

Mirage, the hero skin and portraits looks great, but really you should make it a habit to give the author/creator the proper credit right away (in this case Radmutants portraits).
Do you plan on making more skins?

I have a few ideas, mostly altered creature skins, but those are currently last in line, as there's still a heck of a lot of work with mirroring and adding new objects.

Nostradamus, iLiVe IS working on a tool that will allow us to easily add adventure objects as well as change their type. But as ypu probably know, we still face some limitations as we still don't know how to do dll extensions, thus there's still a lot of stuff we can't add as new.
kkfkkkfk already introduced some new modding posibilities/tools so who know what the future brings.

Mirage and kkfkkkfk, I would very much like to included your mod stuff like new spells, skins etc to Radmutants and my Objects Pack, if that is okay with you?

I wonder if any of those Genie came from either of these
.

Great, just keep sharing here. I did invite a bunch of people to share their work on my google drive, so that all relevant mod creations could be combined in one file, but there's been a general lack, but keep it up
