So what would you suggest, a static +5 attack and +5 defense for all creature specialists?
Well a +1 speed for one creature is not earth shattering, but I think it is interesting, like it can give you faster initiative (Dragonflies/Master Genies) or improve adventure movement (Zombies) or just mix up battle order a little bit and make you use creatures you normally would'nt use much.

My approach was +3 ATK/+3 Def for all creature specialists and then +(Tier) damage.

So, +1 damage for Galthran and +6 for Tamika.

Well that is also a pretty interesting approach and makes them all pretty balanced, still I miss the speed bonus a little.
I wonder how they did it in Xerons case.

If I had to guess, it's hardcoded, specifying both his ID and a speed bonus - meaning that you only get one.

As in you only get one creature specialist with a set bonus that includes speed.

Got another update for this thing upcoming. It's almost done, but there's still some things I need to test and I really need a break from the project before it stresses me out too much.

So... still need a few days.

Sure take a break if you need it mate, no need to get all stressed out.
You have already done a good job.

Hi again BTB.
I have looked in your guide, but could'nt find an answer to these two questions:
1) Do you know if it's possible to make the AI build buildings it normally can't build, like Mana Vortex, Lighthouse etc.?
2) What about the spells it can't cast, can we "flag them" so it can cast them? (I think we did a test a while ago, which sadly did'nt seem to work, but I don't know if we perhaps did something wrong or it needs to be changed some other place as well?)

No clue where building AI is located.

Well, we DO know where the two bytes containing the AI flags for Berserk are. We just have no clue what to set them to, so... have fun with that.

Updated it again with a few more things, most notably Alex's code to convert Eagle Eye artifacts into Learning artifacts

Updated with some information about creature AI, Intelligence, editing Fear and Death Stare, and the Elixir of Life.

Will probably be the last update for a little while short of adding the answers to the questions I just asked in the HotA thread (or unless someone comes along and answers some of the questions asked at the bottom of the guide)

Hello BTB
Do you have any idea how troglodytes immunity to Blind and Petrification is coded?, it does'nt seem to be in the data in the first two columns.

It's hardcoded within instructions by explicit mentioning of creatures' ID.

Immunity to Blind
for Troglodytes at 0x4A28C,
for Infernal Troglodytes at 0x4A295.

Immunity to Stone Gaze
for Troglodytes at 0x4A3CC,
for Infernal Troglodytes at 0x4A3D1.

Thank you Alex.
I have 46 for Troglodytes at those addresses and 47 for Infernal Troglodytes.
You think it would be possible to give those abilities to other creatures as well?, for example Gold and Black Dragons, if we assume they are not already immune to Blind and Petrify.
