Couple modding questions

Looking for a way to change back Stealth the way it was in vanilla when using Equilibris.  They raised it so it takes more stealth to sneak past enemies and steal resources / tag mines.  It's pretty frustrating and useless to try to go that route now instead of combat / other skills.  (I only do single player so multiplayer isn't an issue)

---------------

Also I would like to increase viewable range to buildings like mines / towns.  I dislike fog of war very much in Heroes 4 and get tired of sending out 1 man armies to mines to increase range a few squares.

Maybe some hex edit or something.  Was recently able to change berserker ability with Hiew so hopefully there is something similar to add view range.

Hello. First of all i am totally disagree with you about Stealth. Me and my friends always forbids stealth, removing scouting skills and shrines from the maps. Because Stealth = Imbalanced. WORST thing i have ever seen in Heroes of Might and Magic 4. It was more useful in vanilla game? Oh my god.

Second is, i was asked to increase sight range back in the days but we believe it is hardcoded and nobody knows

Final part is the HeX part. Do you want to edit based on original game or another mod? If the answer is original, here is your solution > Click

I think that the fog of war is use file "map_margin" in heroes4.h4r - Layers. Maybe change this file to transparent or etc. But I don't know, what make file to correct game format.

I saw that post but not really anything I'm looking for.  I'm always on the search whenever I play Heroes 4 to see if anyone has ever found the hex addresses for view range or some other fix.  

As far as stealth, I loved the way it was and I don't play multiplayer.  I could see it being unbalancing in multi.

I use Equilibris but would rather find some way to change these things.

Interesting.  That would be ideal to remove the fog totally.

How did you change Berserk and where?

I always thought stealth is better in equilibris because I care mostly about creatures and they raised it for Bandits, is that not correct?

You need an hex tool however to see most equi changes and even then some are in the DLL and its very hard to identify to which parts they replace since its all hex, so good luck :v

Please report any findings.

I just replaced Berserk with Charge in Berserkers and Frenzied Gnashers I replaced it with Toughness which does nothing.

I used Hiew and followed the guide "How to mod HommIV" for the addresses.

I wouldn't even know how to start finding where Stealth is and how to change it back to vanilla.
