Is it an error or the cheats are automatically enabled ? I can build infinite buildings in a day and have infinite resources.

The bug with unlimited resources and broken Dragon Towers is currently fixed, so you will have to re-download the mod and reinstall the game+mod+hd chain once again. Sorry again.

Sorry for that HD Mod tweak story, guys, we will try to convince Baratorch to disable it by default for our executable. I was not able to reach him during previous weeks. It is not our fault, and there is nothing we could do.
You will have to write it there manually. Like I said, it is not our fault, it's just because HD Mod was not ready for our arrival.
I sincerely hope we can fix this soon.

Regarding the Mod Manager, it is intentional in future to remove it completely from the game as well as other instruments. The beta was built on ERA 2.46, but in future we might reconsider the whole structure of the mod and how it is organized within the framework of Era.

Why remove and by that negate the possibility to use some Era mods which are already compatible with SW? Because I already tried a few and they work fine. A few others also only need a little graphical fix to work with.

We cannot be responsible for third-party mods, because we have already enough problems with v0.8.0. It was a nightmare to see people trying to use WoG Commanders or Stack Experience with the mod which looked terrible, caused a lot of bugs and created a lot of bug reports and user hate towards the project.

In future, we might consider the creation of "officially approved" minimods with the list being posted somewhere. For now though, this feature remains only for experienced users, which are not many compared to casual users.

If you manage to get some Era minimods working fine with H3SW v0.8.0, this is a valuable information too.

When i go to the DL link for the beta i get told its not available via any mirrors. Not sure what that means? I downloaded the link to the first mirrors in drop box thinking that'd help but it seems not.

in HD Mod Launcher, and the problem with townscreens will be removed. It's an HD Mod issue.

Unfortunately, if all 3 mirrors don't work, we'll have to wait. There is a limit on downloads, and people are downloading all the day today.

Random thought, have you tried to disable the HD variable at attach?
Variable *Cosmetic = _P->VarFind("HD.Fix.Cosmetic");
if (Cosmetic)
    Costmetic->SetValue(FALSE);

Who in his right mind would hate you for his mods not working on your modification...
Anyway I would also appreciate to give/let us the possibility to use Mods.
Things like Quick Combat option or Resolve Battle for example

After my first game I can say you really did an excellent job! Some of the new artifacts are very cool and the creatures and animations in combat are outstanding

I am deeply sorry, but I am not proficient in programming. What does "attach" mean in this case?

What we're trying to do is to have a fix in the next HD Mod update, so that it applies a personal set of settings for our executable. This should also solve some unwanted Heretic appearances on random maps.

Do you have any DLL being loaded for H3SW?
If yes, you could try placing that code in the DLL Main function and it should turn off the cosmetic fix before any game files are loaded.
EDIT: if not it can be added as an EraPlugin (?)

Sorry, I can't test myself I don't have the necessary equipment for a few more days.

I packed myself a Mod Pack with all Quick Battle Options for H3TSW:

-Resolve Battle instantly
-Replay Battle Plugin
-Chose Quick Combat/play normally before combat

so far it works without problems. Such things could be considered in the next version.

In editor, we can't give more than one spell to hero, giving another spell disables the one given previously.

Also works:

Turbo wog
Daily quick save
Spells uncovered (shows precise data about spells like resurrect, fire shield etc)

The one I prefer the most, map advanced infos, works 95% but crashes on utopia display, I will look into when time (ok got it, thats because it is limited to 2 arts instead of 4).
