Website - Buy http://www.mmmerge.com domain (or net or something) and connect it to http://www.mmmerge.Templayer.cz


that could cause legal issues with the license owner of the game (ubisoft), imho rather not a good idea - at least not with english speaking domains.
and there would be the issue of who pays what ... traffic from downloading, hosting costs, etc.

Ok, can you add this one into GitLab as well? I cannot access it for some God-awful reason :(

It's basically a weird bolster (?) mechanic that makes Giant Rats weaker than Large Rats.

Well, b&&&&cks. Either way, I'll still send those stuff here, so that you know where to find those.

And speaking of wonky ways of writing, I think this is super wonky. ^^;

Hello all,

Just found this amazing work and immediately tried it out. :-D
Found a small glitch where the sky tile is also reproduced in the tile in front of you.
Image
It doesn't matter if you quit and reload the game, it is always present.
Only in D3d, though.

It is happening in Jadame and Ravenshore up to now as I started a new game from there.
I am sorry to post here and not on Gitlab,

Keep up the good work. :applause:

Couple issues I'm having on Enroth:

Bless spell shows the ankh on my characters' portraits but doesn't show up in active party spell list.

Dragon Tower keys don't seem to work.

Oops, it still works if you right click it and choose "open image new tab" or similar.

Hello.
Game files link in first post have been updated. It is mostly bugfixing update:
1. Pathfinder won't lead monsters to player if party is invisible.
2. Pathfinder now build ways to any kind of monster's target (party or other monster, previously - only party).
3. Fixed crash upon starting new game in software mode.
4. Increased view range is disabled by default now, because it causes ground tiles flickering in outdoor map (is not fixed yet), you still can enable it in controls menu.
5. Monsters with ranged attacks won't rush into melee range for no reason anymore.
6. Endurance attunement (Saving Goobers quest) fixed and does not trigger debug console anymore.
7. Sudden loss of mastery level in Leather skill should be fixed now.

Thank you for the bugfix update Rodril! Does the previous 17.03.2020 update include the Stunning overriding Paralysis fix? I haven't had the time to test it yet and I don't see it on your latest 29.03.20 patch notes.

Hi, long time lurker...decided to finally try the merge mod out, and I'm rather loving it so far.

Question - So I've unlocked classes so I could have some interesting party combos...nothing really silly like dragon wizard or vampire dark elf...and as such I've started in mm7 so I can have better class availability (like having a minotaur monk, or a vampire archer). My question is, are there racial skill trainers in mm7 land, or do I need to go to Jadame to train those?

If the latter, at what aproximate level will travel unlock? And will it screw up difficulty progression (I've read there's difficulty scaling as you beat each location, and I'm ok with that). I want to take advantage of my racial skills (vampire and dark elf particuarily) but I'd rather not wait a whole game for it.

There are plans to add them to each continent. But for now only in Jadame.

You can start travelling between continents as soon as you get town portal spell (I guess, it is not a big spoiler to say that). Actually, you can get gate master hireling at level 1 if you wish.

You will receive the letter with a meeting request around level 5-6 (not sure if it is level dependent). Once you meet the sender, she will tell you how to hop between continents.

Difficulty does add up, but not terribly. To give an idea: with default difficulty settings it is still perfectly possible to beat the game with a single character.

Also, you don't have to complete the game continent-by-continent. You can hop between continents as frequently as you wish.

Very much so, since when it comes to Enroth (MM6), if you ask me, the locations of Racial Trainers might very well be nicely set, just needing to code those and add appropriate NPC images. Here´s what I got from talks with others via Discord:

Dark Elf:
-> Expert: either Castle Ironfist or Bootleg Bay Inn (another option is the house where the Evil Crystal questgiver is)
-> Master + Grandmaster: one/two of the glitchy empty houses in Free Haven (aka ones you cannot enter in the base MM6)

Vampire:
-> Expert: Inn at the edge of the bog in Mire of the Damned (dunno its name, but I know it˙s besieged by Skeletons)
-> Master + Grandmaster: one of the houses in Darkmoor, potentially one where the Book of Liches questgiver appears for the second time due to a pretty amusing glitch in base MM6 game, efficiently "deglitching" it

Dragon:
->Expert: one of the houses/tents in Abdul˙s Desert Resort in Dragonsand (being with the one that swaps Lamps for Gems?)
-> Master + Grandmaster: Blaze the Circus Master in Circus of the Sun in either Bootleg Bay, Mire of the Damned or Blackshire

For MM7, only Vampire ones are being certain when it comes to placements. Others (especially Dragon), not so much. ^^;
Yes?
