It's possible in hex, but only if you are a masohext.

I don't know what masohext is. Anyway, there are many edits I want to do, but I don't know how, so I hope I can find the answer here.

1. I've said this before, but I don't know if it's properly expressed because my English is poor. That is, when using the resurrection magic, it works unconditionally regardless of the HP of creature so that it can recover HP at leaste.

2. If a hero learn eagle eye, it will learn all the magic that enemy have when they win a battle. Like acquiring an enemy's artifact.

3. Remove Wisdom and edit the conditions for learning magic by level as follows.

Magic power = x, knowledge = y
Level 1 --> x+y>=2
Level 2 --> x+y>=5
Level 3 --> x+y>=9
Level 4 --> x+y>=14
Level 5 --> x+y>=20
(* I hope x and y are values excluding the effects of artifacts)

BTB My friend had a fun idea that you could have 3 First Aid Tents per hero, one in the Ballista slot, one in the First Aid slot and one in the Ammo Cart slot.
You suppose something like that would be possible?
If it is, I guess it would also be possible to have 3 Ballistas or 3 Ammo Carts (pointless) or 2 Ballistas and 1 Ammo Cart, maybe also 3 of HotA's Cannons?

Possible? Probably. The game gets REAL finicky when you start trying to snow with reserved artifact slots, though.

Anyway, I updated the guide again with a LOT of corrections since I've been actively bugtesting my mod these last few weeks. Again, it's still a little messy near the end but the information is all there.

I edited the maximum value for morale and the maximum value for luck by referring to the Hacking Guide below. However Morale was applied properly, but Luck was applied only when ranged attack. I think maximum value for luck needs to be edited in two places like morale, but I can't find it. How can I completely edit the maximum value of Luck?

Hacking Guide said:
Off-hand, editing either Leadership or the Luck skill is inherently pointless since neither can exceed a total value of 3 (positive or negative), so before we do anything else we should address that issue. The maximum value for morale is specified at 064586 and 0645A0; the minimum value (FD, or -03) is located at 06458C and 064593; both addresses must be edited in either case. Each point of positive morale confers a 1/24 chance getting of an extra turn while each negative point is a 1/12 chance of losing a turn. These divisors are specified at 0645AA (positive) and 0645A3 (negative), respectively. Negative luck mechanics were never properly implemented in the game, so for that we only have the maximum value (03F65F) and the divisor (03F66C). Note that the menu is unable to graphically represent bonuses or penalties beyond the original caps of +/-3, but new values will be otherwise completely functional.

The game will never be able to visually display more than +3 morale or luck... I'm not quite sure how else you'd conclude that it's not being applied.

I edited it as below for the experiment.
maximum value for morale: 064586, 0645A0 - 03 -> 18
maximum value for luck: 03F65F - 03 -> 18

And, In the game, I gave the hero morale +24 and luck +24 and then fought. Then morale worked with a 100% probability. However, the luck did not work in melee attacks and only worked when ranged attacks. Edit the value only in 03F65F does not seem to completely change the maximum value of luck.

There are two places for Luck cap, melee and ranged attack.

Where is the other place? I'm very curious about this.

3F66C for shooting attack, 4154E for melee attack.

Quote:

4153A: 03 -> your value, 41541: 03 -> your value.

It's working properly now. Thank you so much!

I have one more question. As mentioned in the guide like below, it is difficult to edit because the value for the basic is INC commands. How can I change the expected value of basic to +2 ?

LEADERSHIP      LUCK
----------------- -----------------
BAS: 0DC9E9 (INC) BAS: 0DD1BA (INC)
ADV: 0DCA64 (02) ADV: 0DD235 (02)
EXP: 0DCADD (03) EXP: 0DD2AE (03)

I have a strange idea.
may need to modify the UI frame code of HD mod
I have searched the Internet for a long time, and there is little information in this regard.
The requirements are as follows:
Expand the proportion of town screen background pictures.As shown in the figure.



This may be crazy and impractical. People always ask: Why did you do this?
It's hard to answer. Maybe because I'm a graphics designer.
I  have many similar ideas, and I'm not sure they can be realized.
thank you.

Another request is to disable the shadow of the dialogue.
(all dialogue have similar shadows)
Because I want flat design style
In the figure below, I highlight this shadow to make it easier for you to understand my question.

This problem has been solved with the help of Berserker.

Thank you, Berserker.

Do you know if this is true for !!EA abilities too? I've noticed Double Damage, Berserk and Disrupting Ray seam not to work or work much rarely on shooters.

Can we link the movement consumed when using DIMENSION DOOR and TOWN PORTAL to the values written in the SPTRAITS.TXT? In particular, it would be very nice if the movement could be reduced by the value described at power in SPTRAITS.

And can ANIMATE DEAD be edited to resurrect not only undead units but also non-living things such as Golem and elemental?

This could be interesting, gargoyles would also apply here.
Animate Dead is also a little too hard to learn in HotA right now (without Spell Research) so instead Animate Dead (It could be renamed) could also appear in Tower and Conflux to make it a little easier to actually learn it.
Actually it would make sense if Crystal Dragons were also considered non-living and could be raised through Animate Dead. Maybe even the war machines could be considered non-living too.

Each unit has a flag that can be set, like living or undead. Changing that flag at the beginning of the fight or at the moment you cast the spell could do the trick.
