BladeX, could you give some details? Do you mean HMM 3.5 ERM or Heroes IV scripts? I would like to learn some things about ERM - it's a great thing and I think Heroes 3.5 will never die (unless NWC make a similar scripting system ). But there are still several subjects I don't understand.

I don't understand what you mean. Do you want someone to script these events for you? And what do you mean you have planned them? And what requests are we to make? And what does just "shops" mean?

I'll try to help if I can understand what you need...

It's a waste to have such an excellent map editor and such a crappy game...

Edit well

Those all seem very, very simple.  Using just my Staredit knowledge, without ever making a H4 map of my own, I could do all of those.  Some you've already written -- how hard do you think it is to program 4 different ending conditions?  Why not some strage/advanced tutorials, like a way to completely change the gameplay?

Like me

I'm figuring it out as I go along, but I'm also sure I'm missing a heck of a lot as I do it.  I have no specific tutorial requests at the moment, but I do have a question.  Is it at all possible to link a win condition to an adventure location with no editable properties?  In specific, I'm trying to design a map with the win condition of finding a specific Tree of Knowledge, and I'm beginning to think it can't be done - at least in exactly the way I planned.

that CAN be done. just put event ballons all around the tree. than configure the event to make the player win. this is quite easy to do as long as you name the events surrounding the tree the SAME name.

Another way would be to use the same locations BladeX suggested, but instead set a variable equal to the hero's level.  When the hero's level is 1 greater than that variable, then declare victory.  That way, the player wins after using the tree, not just walking near it.

It's impossible to have victory for going up to a tree and then cancelling the dialog box without using it, however, unless you use BladeX's method.

Hey Blade, your 'comp owns town for 7 days and you lose' tutorial:

so what's the deal if the another human player captures the town, anything? if nothing, what if one human starts with the town, then another human gets it, then the computer gets it off the second human. Which human loses, the first or the second?

What if it's a neutral town and the computer gets it? Who loses? anyone?


What about kill monster to own town tute: Can you set it somehow so that current player (i.e. the monster killer) gets town, or must it always go to a specific player. That's pretty limiting as all my maps are designed for several humans and several computers to be playing (how I always play cos with friends).

Thanks a lot by the way Blade for your tutes. My first map was a buggy piece of crap due to numerous events not working as planned. Some of your tutes have shown me other things that I was doing wrong (or pointed me in right direction) even if not directly related, which has been very useful and appreciated.

I have a mammoth well detailed map nearly ready (100+ hours already into it). I'll submit it when the events are all working properly which is happening a lot easier thanks to peeps like you (my maps really kick arse if you dun mind playing a single scen for days...).

so what's the deal if the another human player captures the town, anything :
------------------
You can set it in the script for either a computer of human or both to capture town to trigger the event. in my tut i have just explained how to set it up for a computer to capture it.

What about kill monster to own town tute: Can you set it somehow so that current player (i.e. the monster killer) gets town, or must it always go to a specific player.
---------------------------------------------------
You have to tell it to make the town ownership revert to a colour. there might be someway to make the player who kills the monster own it but if there is i havn't got a clue how it would be done?

Hmm, interesting question.  Go into the monster (or whatever trigger you want), click the standard events tab, and choose "Defeated".  Only run if owner is "Human"; choose "Sequence" from the list box on the Script tab and add a new event.  Now, pick "Conditional Action": IF Player (Owner) is certain color (whatever) THEN do the 7 day thing for them; ELSE, do the 7 day thing for the other player.  If there's more than 2 players, just add more and more such sequence events within the ELSE section.
