Ok. Yhank you for your answers.
So far I managed to do so :
1. I solve the issue with the Death Stare and I deleted the  dlg_npc3.def folder but no change of icon happened. I also deleted the folder entry dlg_npc2.def but also this icon of poison did NOT change with the original Death stare icon.

2. I couldn't locate the option "Maximum Commander Skills". Where is that option ? How to activate "Maximum Commander Skills" and from where ?

3. Can you tell me how to post pictures ? I cannot find the button that allows a picture from the PC to be uploaded to the post ?

1.)
looks like this file is still present in the advanced classes mod.pac file. Please also delete from there, I will do the same for the next release.

2.)
If you are using the lastest update with H3 Launcher this option is located in the third tab: Skills, Monsters and Hereos...

3.)
You need a picture hoster and upload your files there, then post the link here. I use https://abload.de/ for example.

No such thing like the option "Maximum Commander Skills" appeares in the third tab. Look at what I have :





Is this screen supposed to show specificly text like "Maximum Commander Skills" or you meant ENHANCED COMMANDERS ? If you had in mind ENHANCED COMMANDERS, should I turn this option ON ? But if I turn it on, it would replace "Death Stare"...

If you hadn't in mind ENHANCED COMMANDERS, this means that the screen doesn't look like this and I DO NOT have the latest version of Heroes 3 Launcher.

But I update it regularly. So the launcher shows that my current version is 2.916 ( It is shown when I click on Game control, then on Update.)
Is my version the latest ? If not - what is the last version and where I can download it from ?

Edit : I tried to download the Era Launcher again, reinstall it v.2.58 from here (https://heroes3wog.net/era-3-launcher-edition-update-v2-58/) but it didn't work. It still shows me just the options that are on the picture posted above.I also tried to activate enhanced commanders again, but it changed Death Stare to Poison, then I turned it off as it was.

I opened the advanced classes mod.pak via the PAC Editor from the Era Launcher Tools menu,and deleted the file, also deleted it from the backup folder that was created by the computer. But still the POISON icon is shown in the commander screen and not the original Death Stare Icon.

Its strange.
Your WoG options are not up to date, despite latest assembly update 2.916
The only explanation I have is, that some old files remained in your installation. Please delete whole mod folder and patch again with "Update" button.

Aaahhh, FINALLY !
I did exactly what you told me to do - deleted the MOD folder, reinstalled it+patching and then followed your instructions from yesterday to make changes to scripts.
Now the WOG OPTIONS are shown correctly, Death Stare works, Death Stare's original icon is in place (as shown on the pictures above), Maximum commander skills are OK. I added my other mods and now everything is running OK.

THANK YOU !!! THANK YOU !!!  THANK YOU !!!



I am so happy !

Now, if you have a little more patience with me :
The only 2 issues now are :
1. The icon of the sharpshooter's bow that stands on the screen over the top of the square with Kingdom overview. It happens only when the Bounty Hunter mode is ON. You sais that I must delete it from the mod itself and delete the section of code in the erm file. You said that Sal had made some decent comments on how to locate it.
Can you help me locate it or find Sal's thread with this explanation (could you send a link?) And if I am successful in removing it, would this act make the artifact unusable or create a bug if the file for the icon is missing ?

2. As you can see on one of the pictures above, the Death Stare icon is back, but discription is still for Poison. Can this be changed back to the Death Stare explanation message dialogue ?

3. We are going to wait for the Upgrade Silos mode and Bounty Hunter mod without such a visual bug.

I am not aware of such bugs. Usually they occur when multiple mods replacing similar assets are used, but here from what I understand is new Era version who breaks compatibility. Starting with Era 3.0 previously done mods are unplayable, that's it.

@Azure_Dragon
about this visual bug, I don't know... maybe as Sal said and smt used a similar resource. I suggest you wait for the updates of these mods.

The description from Poison is stored in the znpc00.txt which can be found in the .pac file. Edit it and place it back in. It might make sense to make a separate mod of these files, so they won't get replaced when you use the assembly update.

What is your take on the commanders and com classes? Some say to me commanders are way too strong and for others, they are not powerful enough. I guess a good middle way as compromise has to be taken.

Sorry for the late response. Been busy for a while.  
Salamandre, I completely deleted ALL my files and directories of Heroes 3 Era and Reinstalled the game from scratch. To be sure that nothing causes problems. However, I am used to playing with some mods that I am not ready to abandon yet. I put the Mod directory of the newly installed game the following mods (some of them were made before Era 3):





Here is a look at the Era Mod Manager and the Additional game options that I use for you to see :





I also use maximum secondary skills (28) and made a change in the .ini.file and Maximum commander skills.
So far I hadn't experienced serious problems. The game crashes unexpectedly from time to time, and when it does, I use the report button to announce the issue. For the moment I am OK with this settings. Of course, if it starts to be very annoying, I'll remove the old mods. But I will definitely eagerly wait for the new revised and made compatible era 3 mods for Upgradeable silos and Bounty Hunter. Before deleting my whole H3 directory, I tested every single mod by removing and including the old mods shown in the pictures above ONE by ONE and it came out to be that the old Mithril Smelter mod causes the issues and because of it my setting were not properly updated !! The visual bug is caused by the Bounty Hunter mod.

I hope that you and your kindly friends will make changes to Mithril Smelter mode as well.

RerryR,for me the commanders are not too powerful without the Death Stare skill. I am not familiar with the SECRET COMMANDER SKILL-I haven't experienced it because I'd never advanced in the game so far. Commander classes are well balanced to me. It would be nice if you add a dialogue option to postpone the choosing of commander class such as it is for heroes classes. (At the moment, with all 28 secondary skills activated, I can develop every skill and the game gives me the option to choose between classes but I don't choose and delay the choice for 5 hero levels. I'll choose in the late stages of the game a hybrid class). The same may apply to the commander. It also be nice if there was an option that allows you if you play without hero classes, like I do, to use the original commanders' specifications and mastery that were disabled by the script that runs before everything else when ACM is being played.

Hello again !
Since my last post I have noticed some graphical differences in the ACM and TUM variants of the game mods. I do not know whether it is made intentionally or needs to be fixed, but I'd like to share them :
1. When playing with different races in the classic WOG version of Heroes 3 (v.3.58) when trying to recruit a creature from the Castle town screen and when clicking on the buildin picture, a new dialogue window opens and you are given a choice between the upgraded and non-upgraded version of the creature and back then by default the upgraded version of the creature was chosen by the cursor. Now, using this mods, I noticed that for some creatures the default cursor is on the upgraded version, while for others it is on the non-upgraded version. And I need to click manually every time when I want to purchase the upgraded versio first on its picture,then on the button for maximum number of creatures to be bought, then - on the purchase buttom. This graphical thing happens BEFORE building the special building in every town for the third upgrade creatures to appear.Example : If I play with Inferno, when I ant to recruit familiars and I open the castle screen, the picture for imps is marked in red and I need to switch manually to the picture with the familiar, in order to buy it. Can this be fixed so that the cursor marks always by default the upgraded version of the creature ?
2. I use the option "Fourth upgrades in town "ENABLED !!! AFTER I build the special building in every town for the third upgrade creatures to appear, when trying to buy creatures, opening the screen, the third upgrade creature has a picture as a backgroung always of the Conflux town behind the creature graphics, instead of the background of respective town. For example : Behind the Lord of Thunder there is a green background with a picture of a Conflux town. Behind the Guardian of Zeus, there is a white (snow) background with a picture of a Tower town. It happend ONLY for level 7 creatures. Can these backgrounds for all third upgrade level creatures be changed so that THE RESPECTIVE TOWN picture where this creature is from to appear ?
3. I do not like the current graphics for these 2 creatures (but I love playing with them) - Lord of Thunder and Guardian of Zeus. Is it possible the old graphic of the Heroes 3 WOG for the creature LORD of Thunder (it looked like the Titan, but the armor was in a colour between red and pink) to be brought back and replace the current purple graphic of the creature Guardian of Zeus. And for the current creature Lord of Thunder a red armor to be used instead of this bronze  colour that is now ? If the creators do not intend to do so, or if it requires a lot of work, is it possible for me to replace some files manually and bring the old picture back so that to make at least the Guardian of Zeus to look like the old Lord of Thunder?
4. Is it also possible to make this to appear by default : when trying to buy creatures maxumum quantity you could afford at the given time to be available automatically for purchase instead of needing to hit the "buy all creatures button" in order to set this to maximum ?

Hi Azure Dragon,

thanks for the input. To be honest I have not really an idea how to change any of what you suggested. It also has nothing to do with ACM.
You might want to check the HD-Mod settings in the HD Launcher under tweaks.
<UI.Ext.TownMgr> = 1 , 1
<UI.Ext.TownMgr.AvailableInsteadGrowth> = 1

this should set the creatures to recruit always to max instead of 1.

Edit: Point 3) is ofc possible for you. You must make yourself familiar with def files for creatures and where they are stored. You can replace them in TUM mod to have the old look for the Titans upgrade.

[url=https://discord.gg/SdPnxggp]Discord Server Support[/url]

Installation Tutorial:
This mod requires the latest ERA 3.9 version.
Download the assembly [url=http://wforum.heroes35.net/showthread.php?tid=5817]here at HC[/url] and the mod: [url=https://www.moddb.com/mods/advanced-classes-mod/downloads]ModDB Downloads[/url]
For HD Launcher settings I use the following settings:
(stretchable) 32-bit OpenGL by Verok
For resolution, I recommend 1180x664 or 1280x720
and any filter.

Activate the mod in the ERA Mod Manager.


All changes are very thoroughly described in .txt files in "Help and Readme files" folder. Here all changes are preserved to be as simple as possible.
All skills are divided between 3 groups: Adventurer skills, Mage skill and Warrior skills. Each skill gives class points which then will determine class
of the hero. Mastering skills earns you additional 2 class points in respective class. Neutral skills can get Master rank and GM rank from any master/GM class, but mastering them doesn't give any additional points.

Below all skill effects that are separated by "/" sign lists bonuses for all 5 ranks. For example, 4/6/10/12/15% means that basic rank will be 4%,
advanced 6%, expert 10%, master 12% and grandmaster 15%.

Does it matter how strong you're if you get stuck in the swamp? For adventurers, simple rules do not apply. Locate resources where other will not, gather soldiers when others are not wise enought to do so, change your rules as you go, bind adventure map to your cause. Smother enemies with your numerous army before they have a chance to call to arms.
Master:
- Lord ability
- Plunder Ability (like in H5, removes movement cost of picking up resources, artifacts, capturing mines, attacking CB)
Grandmaster:
- Landlord ability
- Coordinated Attack
- Plunder II
- +3% creature growth per Week
We will note here, that adventurer class heroes have their own skill system, meaning that they have secondary skill chances, primary skill gains and starting secondary/primary skills unique to their class and faction. They can't be distinguished by class name, but can easily be distinguished by their speciality their speciality is always associated with adventurer skill. Kyrre, classic logistics specialist, is now an adventurer. Fiona, that used to have cerberi speciality, now is a Scouting specialist and also an adventurer.


Battlemage. Those who can't ignore neither might nor magic will eventually learn how to use them both succefully. Decades of fighting made you realize how valuable it is to overwhelm your opponents and ways of doing so. Your magic will surprise, your warcry will make enemies falter.
- Warcry (reduce hp of enemies by 5-10%)
- Pre-Cast (casts 1 random damage ability when the fight starts)
- 1 extra cast
- Master Training


Hunter. Hunt down animals, hunt down enemies, everything is your prey. Long and numerous hunting sessions turned you into a quick and agile killer, merciless. You surrounded your prey, you negated any unusual moves, first strike is all that matters, wounded prey can't retaliate. And your results are surprising.
- First Shot Ability (your archers will act before everyone in first turn)
- Magic Block (prevents enemy spell casting at first turn)
- Plunder Ability
- 10% max Damage


Druid. You've used your wits, you've worked for brighter future, but you can't save them all. No amount of diplomacy can solve that, you were not quite stupid to believe that. Yet you always have searched for a way to protect everything what is precious to you. You were searching for years and found nothing; the answer always lied before you: Nature. It opened it's secrets to you, it taught you how to be as everlasting as it is, as durable, and it taught you magic. March with your immortal army to your dream: eternal peace.
- Natural Healer (resurrect 2 damage stacks after battles, First Aid skill is not required, but will increase the healing at Master and GM ranks)

I have confused these text, someone can please explain more!!!

Almost all spells, that didn't scale whatsoever, like buff and debuff spells, now scale with the new parameter called Magic Strength (MS). MS equals to Spellpower, but is also increased by all mage secondary skills and some specialties or artifacts. Moreover, all combat spells now gained a bonus effect that's unlocked by gaining Master rank at corresponding school of magic and most spells are further amplified by Grandmaster rank. To compensate for high values spells got mana costs got increased and starting effect got decreased.
Scalings. Every value here and in spells is rounded down.
Percentage: extra 3% per 10 MS.
Fire Shield: 2% per 10 MS.
Attack/Defence: 1 per 10 MS.
Damage: 1 per 33 MS.
Morale/Luck/Retals: 1 per 33 MS.
Haste/Prayer: 1 per 25 MS.
Summons: 1 per 20 MS.

Hi tutututu12345,

I will quote from the readme file found in the Help folder of the Advanced Classes mod. I hope this solves your confusion.

PS: Please Edit your post and remove the complete opening page. It's unnecessary. Thanks ;-)

Changes to the Magic System


Have you ever felt that it made no sense that a level 5 hero can cast Stoneskin with the same effect than a mighty level 50 wizard?
This Mod gives nearly all spells a scaling with spell power which hadn't one before! The effect of the spell is now based on your heroes total "Magic Strength" [MS]
MS is a combination of the hero spell power and his magic-based secondary skills!
Check your current value of Magic Strength by right-clicking the Experience icon in your hero screen. The value will be indicated in the top left corner.
If you now pick Sorcery as a secondary skill it will give you +10 MS at expert level. +10 to MS will most likely result in one extra level for most of your spells. So no more buffing damage spells only.
A lot of other magic skills as wisdom, scholar or the magic schools will give you a certain amount to you MS. This system prevents strong might heroes, which happen to have high spell power,
from gaining the same strong spells as a pure magic hero will get!

To keep balance all spells start at a lower level. At around 20 to 30 MS factor you will get the same values as original H3 spells. But after that value, your spells will become stronger the more spell power you have.
Most spells cost more spell points than before, this makes it more important for casting heroes to take care of their spell points.

How to calculate Magic Strength value:
MS=(Spell_Power+SecSkills_Bonus)*Map_Modifier*Spell_Trainer

Map coefficient
[+20% Bonus on S size map]
[+10% Bonus on M size map]
[0 penalty on L size map]
[-15% penalty on XL size map]
[-20% penalty on XXL size map]

If Spell Trainer Mod is active you get -25% Magic Strength value

Scalings. Every value here and in spells is rounded down.
Percentage: 15->3, 25->8, 50->15, 50->17, 85->20, 100->25, extra 3 per 10 MS after. (Shield27, Air Shield28, 4 Protections from Element30-33, Magic Mirror36, Slow54.)
Slow: 2% per 5MS
Attack/Defence: 25->1, 30->2, 35->3, 45->4, 55->5, 70->6, 90->7, 105->8, extra 1 per 10 MS after.
Bless Curse Damage: 25->1, 60->2, 100->3, 150->4 MS.
Morale/Luck/Retals: 40->1, 70->2, then 3 after 110 MS.
Haste/Prayer: 35->1, 45->2, 75->3, then 4 after 110 MS.
Summons: +20HP per Magic Strength.
Fire Shield: 10%-melee-damage +10*SP+(Level of Fire Magic) damage is returned

ACM Version 1.09
Nearly one year has passed since the last content update for this mod, you can view the full changelog in the mod folder. This update mostly revolves around an extended commander class and skill system, here is how it works: In addition to the 9 commander base classes, 18 new promotion classes have been introduced. Making a total of 27 commander classes available. Next to the level advancement of each commander, they can also collect {Kill Counts} during combat, giving access to the new classes and increased attributes. To collect a kill count, you must finish off a stack with your commander or use the commanders native cast. When reaching 30 kill counts you are offered a promotion during combat. You can select the promotion or stay in your base class. All base classes do scale with one of the eight primary attributes, while promotion classes get a different and unique scaling. Your job is to find a good hero and commander combination to make the best out of the new system.

Edit: When playing with the Third Upgrade mod, two new commander classes, the Arch Mage and the Warden won't function properly, we must wait for a TUM update.


Changelog 1.09
When updating please delete the old version before installing 1.09

Patch 1.09 requires an updated ERA 3.95 including the newest ERA ERM Framework mod! Otherwise, you will be presented with tons of ERM errors at map start.

New:
- added 18 additional commander classes, including a new secret class that must be unlocked with an in-game riddle
- transferred class pictures of heroes from pcx to png images, meaning no more half-transparent pictures in the advanced class screen
- changed hero secondary skills or spells will now show correctly when selecting a random map and viewing the hero (thanks to Daemon for the plugin)
- Heroes with commander speciality now the values will show in the commander bonus list
- Summoner Specialists (Alamar and Thunar) now have a new and more fitting icon (thanks to ???)
- Removed Eagle Eye skill ability to visit objects from a distance. Restored possibility to use Sorcery I WoG option. The remade version from Daemon is much better. Still, the option seems OP
- added extended artifact set descriptions (thanks to Kongsuni)
- Alternative Necro Option. Implemented native Necromancy mechanic, Alternative Necromancy option will now only raise the given value, ignoring all other sources like specializations, artifacts or skill. (thanks to Archer)
- When selecting a new commander class it will not give additional information about special perks in the info bar of that dialogue.
- changed code to apply additional damage during combat and how it is shown: for Sniper, Paladin, Dragonslayer commander. For Grandmaster Adventurer Stand united ability, Gnolls Fail, Drakshard sword and that Cherry Bow. Damage will now be indicated in mouse hover


Balance:
- Ignissa free Firebird starts from level 5 instead from level 1
- slightly lowered Heal Capacity
- Dragon Fire Set +1 att and +1 def set bonus
- Dif Mod: increased computer player starting units if the neutral stack size is enabled
- increased Fire Shield return damage to 20% (from 10%). Like with basic fire magic in SoD
- Druids Adv class Concentration perk now has increased duration of buffs taken to the next battle round
- balance changes to commander skills. Strikes All Enemies around reduces commander damage by 15%. Block ability changed to reduce damage by only 50% instead of 100%.
- Regeneration ability's regenerates 50+5% of max commander health
- slightly reduced commander specialist power (Pasis, Vey, Torosar)
- Scout com class now only generates res and no more gold, because that is Brute stuff
- Commanders can now gain kill count when casting buffs/debuffs, to not only rely on damage to advance
- reduced caster commander damage scaling in early and late-game


Fix:
- Bonus damage from the Improved Magic Arrow M/GM perk now not counted as extra damage
- spell trainer max level up now does not reset when replay battle
- Mystic/Intelligence specialists fix for dropping below zero mana
- Fire Mage cannot deal negative damage at level 1 (thanks to aldzzz)

- with Eagle Eye pre damage creatures cannot drop below zero health
- Emblem of Cognizance now protects from damage and makes battle log entry
- digging for Grail now works better with M/GM Logistics
- corrected HP bonus from Adv Ballistics skill (thanks to TymanDyrman)
- Hunter Magic Block perk corrected description (+50MR in First Battle Round)
- corrected Hunter First Shot ability not working for first unit
- ACM now checks for newest ERA 3 version
- Casting Fireball with commander only reduces spell points once, instead of for every target
- small fix for First Aid tent erm error (thanks to wafs)
- disabled Land Navigation option
- more multiplayer improvements
- selecting the commander class in MP matches now should work better (thx to Yosh for the hint)
- fixed Master Quicksand spell now is placed before two hex shooters also
- fixed wrong placement of mines from master teleport spell if more than 10 creatures are standing on the battlefield

My face when I no longer have Navigation:



Most of the changes are good, however I don't like no navigation or the Scouting bonuses.

My criticism of navigation is because I like water maps and not having a water-specific skill seems like fail, could have given more bonuses such as incleasing ATK and DEF of creatures in combat (like H4) and reducing the embark/disembark penalty.

Another thing that I dislike is the "WoG scouting". For some it may seem exciting, but to me the popups are annoying. They also break some maps that depend on resource scarcity, quests which force you to get some resources by getting a mine or defeating certain monster, etc. Also your scouting heroes are conditioned to run around endlessly for "bonuses"...

But on the rest, good work

Hi Nimo,

thanks for the feedback.
I guess I never played enough water maps, so the skill was useless for me, so was the feedback from other players. Technically when picking Nobility you should still get increased movement on water, because it's just a skill replacement.
As for Scouting it is like you say. Some find it very exciting to have the chance for a random bonus. In the current form the skill has a purpose in the late game by offering the hero the chance to make hughe fights for a reward and experience.
