H5.5 Q - Custom Portraits/Names

Hi there!

Back in TotE I used to change portraits and names of heroes in the game through popping .h5u files in the UserMods folder.

What I'd like to find out is if this is still possible in H5.5? Or would I have to physically edit the H5.5 mod files.

Secondly, where in the H5.5 mod files are the hero portraits and name files located?

Thank you!

Hi, magno. Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, not sure if it's against the Site's Rules but I'm at my wits end trying to change the Heroes' names, Bios and Specs all night.

Is it still possible to do it with the latest release of HOMM 5.5 (A New Beginning + patched)? And if so, how can I go about it? Thanks for your help and for this mod!

I'm busy right now, but you should know, there is no difference technically in how you can edit these items between TOE and MMH55.

@Lure_of_Lilith if things are the same basically the only hard thing will be to find which hero is actually which hero, because internal names are different from in-game hero names. Here you can find a list of internal hero classes and their in-game hero classes. It is not internal hero name to in-game hero name but I hope it helps a bit.
