No more i can edit Heroes 4

Extended explanation for the people do not understand

Hello everyone. I am developing Heroes 4 mod for me and my friends. I was working on equilibris 3.51, then I have started to work on equilibris 3.55

I have the file that changes stats of buildings, artifacts, creatures and spells within 3.55 BUT when I try to export my files again, i cannot do that.
I have re-created my files again but this time I cannot import my files into it.
I have downloaded 3.55 installed rar file, and i cannot import my files into it
I have downloaded 3.55 installer and installed it, and i cannot import my files into it.

In another words, no more i cannot use my creatures, artifacts, buildings and spells files with 3.55

Hmmmm. Ok i will create new one but just realized i have a problems with Equilibris 3.55 but somehow i was succeeded. The problem is, 3.55 have their own items, so that means i need to export equilibris into my mod first but it seems my current version includes 3.55 items and i don't remember how i did this.

Here it is screenshot https://ibb.co/QfShXvh
And it is the file https://gofile.io/?c=CxALv7

I have 3 objectives (i need to do one of them)
1-) Import my files into 3.55 equi_text
2-) Export equi_text artifacts into my mod
3-) Export equi 3.55 artifacts and my text files into new mod

I know it looks easy but since 3 days i have tried many thing and i have failed. And most interesting part, my latest equi_text files includes both of the changes but it seems i cannot import or export files to this file.

Import my files into new_mod.h4r, this file also known as new.h4r for easy modding pack. Sorry, I did not quite understand your problem

Ok let me tell you what happens. Just download equilibris 3.55 and try to import anything into it (creatures, artifacts, buildings or spells txt) and tell me if you can succeed. It is the part i have stucked.

When i try to start, it asks for equi_text and equi_text file have their own data and somehow i cannot export and import it.

Update: I have installed equilibris 3.55 with proper way (installer and it is russian)
I have extracted table.creatures.txt and compared with my table.creatures.txt and only difference is russian vs english language and stat changes.

Then i have replaced my table.creature.txt with this file, but when i start to game, select the any map game crashes...

I am going crazy i am trying to solve this issue for 10 days. Bored too see same screens many times and i am totally confused and still don't understand...

Please i beg you. Tell me what am i missing. I have the working file for 3.55 but NO MORE i can put my new files into it and NO MORE i can extract files into it.

I will give you the all details if you ask.

I have only tried modding Equi 3.51 thus I'm not familiar with any import/export issues with 3.55 so forgive me if my answers might be insufficient.
But as I haven't much succes with ResEdit2 myself I wanna ask if you tried import/export with eg. MH4 or other programs? MH4 has worked for me both for import and export.
I'm not able to help with a deeper analysis atm.
As for reading the files, if you know you have a working mod file but the game doesn't read it, be sure to check you don't have a dublicate folder (if running windows) where the game (also) reads from. If so, this would be under your user name.

Hello Roman2211. I have 2 different problems actually

1-) It is the latest version of my mod. No more i cannot export it's files and import new files into it click for lost files

2-) After i decided to my mod "corrupt" i have started to create new files. And it is my new files. But it looks like somehow they've corrupted too...

3-) And it is the "installed folder" of 3.55. We are using this BUT i believe it's equi_text file is corrupted and i am uploading 3.55 original equi_text with it (the file created with installer)

Here it is the files Download
my_lost_file is the file works when you put in data folder BUT i cannot import new ones or export old files within

my_new_file is the new table files i have decided to create after my_old_files but i am trying (table.creatures.txt example) to pack to my 1 file but game crashes

EQUI_3.55_Installed is the file shared by radmutant69 in this topic http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=45849

equi_text 3.55 original is the equi_text file created by installer. I have uploaded this one too because i think the file shared by radmutant69 is not working well.

I can't extract 3 of your 4 files for some reason. Are you sure they were uploaded correctly? My 'installed' Equilibris should working properly though as I play with these exact files years ago.

First of all thanks to roman for helping me. But still my problem continues. How many times i have tried I don’t know. My brain started to melt. Started to headache. MINIMUM HUNDREDS OF TIMES I have tried to do in different ways. I have started to lose my hope. Is someone can tell me step by step how can I do that.

I just want to edit my files within this file, then repack it again.

Click for the file

If you can extract, make change on it, then succesfully repacked it please let me know how.

Update: Dear Roman still trying to help me but still we can't succeed it.

This is why i am asking for help. If you put this file into data folder, it affects the game. But no more i able to extact files again. In other words, no more i can update my mod.

But i have re-started to created my mod again but this time my file not affects the game

Is someone in there can told us step by step? Maybe we are missing something.
