Taro has made a new for H4 WoW/Equi which makes the immortality potions more expensive. Their cost will be 9900 gold, slightly reducing the player's chance to spam with them. One weakness of H4 was that these potions, in combinations with such skills as Grandmaster Combat with Magic Resistance, made you virtually impossible to kill.
Theree are two separate files for WoW and Equilibris and original files from the game (just in case). The mod was made for the US English version and it might not work with other languages.
Find the mod as a last link below.

It allows you to copy part of maps, make a dump file, create a script C-like file that may be edited and then processed again.You can write a script for your map in a regular text file and then process it, which is more useful than "writing" the script from the Map Editor.

A graphical user interface for this program is also available. On how to use H4Util, look here.

Download them on the Microsoft site.
- Shroud Registry Tweak by Slava Salnikov (WoG founder and author of ERM). A registry key has been tweaked to turn off the shroud in Heroes of Might and Magic IV, revealing the entire map. You only need to double-click the noshroud.reg file to automatically add the key to your registry. To bring back the shroud back, double-click shroud.reg.
- Extractor (v. 1.03) by DaMaGepy. This tool allows you to extract video, text and music files from the Heroes of Might and Magic IV game files.
- Heroes Minimapper by DaMaGepy. The program captures the minimap from the mapeditor's screen to bmp. Captures 2 pictures (because in the editor the gray rectangle covers the part of the map so it requires 2 independent screenshots) and saves the picture with a black frame as BMP. Easy to use...
