I'll also comment on condition priorities: their vanilla order makes more sense if you remember that only the "worst" condition is allowed to affect the stats. So poison/fear/insanity/etc. only took effect if it was displayed as the active condition. That's why all non-KO conditions were pushed behind poison and disease in priority -- otherwise becoming e.g. weak or cursed would also effectively "cure" the other effect.

Decoupling display priority from actual priority is, of course, an improvement; the only flaw is that now it's not always obvious why the PC's stats are reduced. On that topic, the game used to display all conditions on a right-click -- not sure if it was a vanilla thing or an early patch feature, but it doesn't seem to work anymore, which may be a bug.

Indeed, it's a bug I've introduced. It's supposed to be in right click menu in character screen. I'm gonna leave the condition in Stats screen the stats-effecting one, while in other places I'll have the more severe one.

Version 2.5.2
<< MM6 - MM8 >>
[*] Now character's Stats screen displays a condition that determines stats, in all other places the most severe one is displayed.
<< MM6, MM7 >>
[-] Now simple message dialog (e.g. obelisk message) isn't cancelled by any key press. In MM7 the message also doesn't stay on the screen after being cancelled anymore. Add DontSkipSimpleMessage=0 to INI to disable this fix.
<< MM7, MM8 >>
[-] "Nothing here" was shown on the screen after a dialog with a guard.
[-] My bug: List of all conditions wasn't displayed in right click menu for Condition in Stats screen.

Hey. Thanks as always for the good work!

I have some input on the patch (may add more later if I find something new)

The indoor fov option doesn't seem to do anything. Is the option correctly spelt in the readme? Is it case sensitive? Or simply bugged?

The fountains on Evenmorn island now display black "texture" instead of water (may be a bug due to my settings, I set my view distance to 16000 and I know setting it higher creates more and more glitches)

I'm not sure acid burst doing water damage makes sense/was intended. Now it works on oozes for example, which seems strange to me. There is no poison damage in 7 so I thought this was physical was the next logical element to pick.

Edit: FixMonstersBlockingShots option makes it so that ranged mobs fighting each other can't hit anything. Saw this in nighon tunnels where warlocks shots went right through the gogs.

Are you running in Software mode? I forgot to mention it's for D3D.

No, view distance shouldn't affect it. Try moving your mm7.ini somewhere temporary to see what would happen with default settings.

Poison is Body in MM7+, but all spells deal damage of their respective school's element, e.g. Poison Spray.

Tried with default ini and the bug is still there.

Both fire and water warlocks shot through the gogs.

Do you mean the entire game or you just want to see which files are there? It should be clean though, my installation is from GOG and I only install your patch pretty much.

My game is installed in C:\Games\Might and Magic7

The whole folder. I've tried with GoG version, and the bug with water wasn't reproduced. Maybe your folder would help reproduce it.
Do I undestand correctly that this is water that's black? https://www.dropbox.com/s/m38sjxf4xtvbi ... 8.png?dl=0
I've reproduced other bugs.

No, it's this well.

I'll pack the game and upload it later, will post when it's done. I could also try doing another clean install.

Here's my game. I didn't upload anims and music folder to make the size more manageable. Music folder has converted .wav files alongside the GOG's .mp3s, otherwise nothing was changed in them.

It's always been black, NWC made it so on purpose :)
P.S. I always confuse the 2 E* islands of MM7.

Wait, really? I could swear I remember there being a water texture in those wells, albeit different looking than a normal well.

Edit: Yeah, look at vanilla MM7 (GOG version, no patch/mod) https://ibb.co/9nwPBcQ

Edit2: I remembered another new bug or behaviour change since 2.5. When I try to shoot arrows at monsters and there's a body of water between my party and it, the party will aim at the monster's feet, resulting in all shots landing in the water. There was another situation where the party started aiming at the head, rather than the center of the monster, but I can't remember how I made that happen. I can post screenshots of what I mean if it's not clear.

Go to turn based (so they don't move away) and try shooting the gogling right in front of you.

Re: GrayFace MM7 Patch v2.5.4 [Dec 29, 2021]

Postby GrayFace » Dec 29 2021, 22:09

Version 2.5.4
<< MM6 - MM8 >>
[-] Now, when a location re-spawns, all artifacts generated in chests you've never opened get cleared from "obtained artifacts" list.
<< MM7, MM8 >>
[-] My bug: FixMonstersBlockingShots option didn't work right.
<< MM7 >>
[*] I've disabled FixUnmarkedArtifacts by default, because Titan's Stronghold had an unreachable chest with an artifact, still present in Rev4 mod or games started before this version of patch.
[-] My bug: IndoorFovMul option was only working in UILayout mode.
<< Fixes in maps >>
[-] The Titans' Stronghold (d09), Temple of the Dark (t02): Artifacts could be generated in inaccessible chests, reducing the number of artifacts the party can get.

None of the 2.5.4 patches show on your github homepage for some reason (they can still be downloaded from github releases)

Edit: I still cannot get IndoorFovMul to work. I've already been using UILayout. I think :D
