Yes, all commanders of that type will receive new graphics, there is no way to use two graphics for same ID at same time (not that I'm aware of)

But there are ways to work around that, for example, check before battle if the opponent hero is same class, and if yes, change your hero commander type (CO#:T$) to other type (0-8) then change that one's graphics. Don't forget to switch back after battle.

Example: Crag meets Gurnisson. They both have commander type 6. Change Crag's commander to type 8 (or any) then change THIS commander's graphics.

But in general those def's switch not looking good, as the small portraits will still show previous.

I also thought of another way around it, if I went through all the heroes available and gave them their unique def (with many overlapping being the non-affected heroes) with the method you suggested in an earlier reply, will each remain true to their new def you think?

If you have 8 new defs for heroes and assign them to 8 unique hero classes, heroes will have new unique graphics. Again, afaik hero def is unique for given hero town and class.

voodoo, use hero ID only where the syntax allows it - check ERM manual when in doubt.

Hey guys, thanks again for all the help. I was trying to edit the Creature Banks (imp caches, dwarven treasury, naga bank, etc). I found the crbank.txt in the MMArchive and tried to edit it and put it back into the file, and put it into the WoGpac for good measure, and there it doesn't make any changes to the game. Is there something that I am missing?

Haha I know, its sketchy, I just thought it would be cool if each hero could have their own looking def commander while maintaining the class to the hero.  :P

Are you serious? That means 155 new creatures, with shooting frames and with similar quality in design. Where you gonna find that??

Well you could use any creature def from the lists of 100s out there.  edit a few of them and voila.  Plus you don't have to make a unique commander for all of the heroes, just the ones you like for your mod.  Maybe certain key heroes

Is there a plugin already made for this?

Ok, thanks for pointing out the zcrbank.txt file. I missed it. So I edited it and I can change some things about it like what the banks themselves are called and the rewards they give after beating them, but I can't seem to change or affect the creatures. I attempted to change the creature types by simply changing the name of the creature to what I am looking for. Also, the numbers do not seem to change anything. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Thank you all again.

I think you need ERM for that, there is a receiver CB which  allows you to customize every creature bank to your wishes.

Really? Huh, I'll look into it.

Ok I found the CB list of the banks, but I'm not sure what the code would be like to edit the creatures in it. Any idea what it would look like?

Well, I saw no one until now who would know how an ERM code looks without studying it before

So you should start looking into:

UN receiver, it will find how many CB are on a map then process each one
CB receiver, once UN located a bank, use CB to change values in (check CB column)

There are dozens of mods using this pattern, you can do a quick search, then try some code and post it here for fix if not working.

Hey everyone,

I am trying to change a few heroes around to different classes (Knight, cleric, ranger, etc).

For example here are a couple I am trying to make into the Knight class:

ZVSE
!#HE102:B2/0; crag hack
!#HE48:B2/0; fiona

These heroes classes are not changed in game, however there was not an ERM error. Is there a trigger I am missing?

My guess is that changing class in instructions is too early. Change the class in PI

!?PI;
!!HE102:B2/0; crag hack
!!HE48:B2/0; fiona
