There was some problem registering Nomad at Castle Gobs back in 2007.

Man, is that possible for adding new feature such as everyone can hold almost anything rather than have skill for that.

Like Diablo game, an Sorcerer can hold an axe, an sword, an spear but they are just as not as effective as an paladin or amazon, barbarian.

It means everyone has their special skill in holding different weapon.

It odd when you have to need a skill to hold just a metal or wood stick.

We can make new game has different style (like a new enhance version of MM6 with new breath).

Maybe it would be fine to fix "Guardian Angel" issue, i.e. to make it return to the last visited temple, not to New Sorpigal.

There's no Guardian Angel in MM7 :)
My patches: MM6 MM7 MM8. MMExtension. Tools. Also, I love Knytt Stories and Knytt Underground. I'm also known as sergroj.

I think Energy magic should come back as a school and an elemental type in Might and Magic 6-8

Might and Magic 4 - 5 had...
Fire, Cold, Electricity, Poison, Energy and Magic Resistances

Energy is already in the game. You just can't resist it.

There are two people working on a project from this moment on!
Work now goes twice as fast :)

Good luck to you :) saw this on the castle gobs forum a while ago, I take my hat off to all developers and modders involved with the might and magic community.

I don't even pretend to understand all the tech talk in here, but am I correct in assuming that this project would make it possible to play MM6 with the skills, classes and so on introduced in MM7? (Obviously further modding would be needed to add trainers for the new skills, etc.) Rather like Infinity Engine modders have now made it possible to play the original Baldur's Gate in the BGII engine.

And, would some minor interface improvements be possible? Things like:
    Ability to go to a character's spellbook directly from their inventory (and vice versa)
    Ability to go directly from one character's spellbook to another's, provided both characters are currently able to take an action
    (In fact, ideally, the spellbook should be a sixth tab in the inventory.)
    Keyboard shortcuts for choosing options when interacting with NPCs
    A way to throw away an item in inventory that doesn't involve leaving the inventory screen
    When you right-click on an unidentified item, the character who is best at identifying things among those currently conscious (not necessarily the character currently selected) tries to identify it
    When you right-click on a broken item, the character who is best at repairing things among those currently conscious (not necessarily the character currently selected) tries to fix it

If these sorts of ease-of-use changes could be implemented, that alone would be enough to earn my eternal gratitude, let alone anything substantially new that comes out of this.

(I wish I could do more than make suggestions but I am useless at coding; tried to learn it and never had the patience. I could do things like write the needed extra dialogue, I suppose.)

Hello there.

am I correct in assuming that this project would make it possible to play MM6 with the skills, classes and so on introduced in MM7? (Obviously further modding would be needed to add trainers for the new skills, etc.) Rather like Infinity Engine modders have now made it possible to play the original Baldur's Gate in the BGII engine.

Yes, it will be possible to play MM6 with the skills, classes and so on introduced in both MM7 and MM8. It would be like Baldur's Gate 4-in-one-games, Might and Magic 6-7-8 all-in-one.

Ability to go to a character's spellbook directly from their inventory (and vice versa)

That can be quite easily done.

Ability to go directly from one character's spellbook to another's, provided both characters are currently able to take an action
(In fact, ideally, the spellbook should be a sixth tab in the inventory.)

Yes

Keyboard shortcuts for choosing options when interacting with NPCs

That one is easy to implement too.

A way to throw away an item in inventory that doesn't involve leaving the inventory screen

Yep

When you right-click on an unidentified item, the character who is best at identifying things among those currently conscious (not necessarily the character currently selected) tries to identify it
When you right-click on a broken item, the character who is best at repairing things among those currently conscious (not necessarily the character currently selected) tries to fix it

Yes and yes :)


If these sorts of ease-of-use changes could be implemented, that alone would be enough to earn my eternal gratitude, let alone anything substantially new that comes out of this.

Those are just the minor changes planned to gameplay. When it's done, any change to the game interface/logic/appearance that you can think of would be possible to implement.

(I wish I could do more than make suggestions but I am useless at coding; tried to learn it and never had the patience. I could do things like write the needed extra dialogue, I suppose.)

2D/3D artists, writers and all who can help are also wanted. maybe a little bit laters, on the next stage of the peoject developement, but I think each and every willing person will be able to help when time comes :)

Can you tell what program did you use to disassemble the executable?
