I'm playing with modifying Lua scripts, but I don't know how to add additional scripts for more improvement(for example multiplayer mod, etc.).
I want to study more about this mod's architecture.

P.S. I'm still waiting the reply of my previous post.

Quest is doable with solo knight in both Base Merge and Revamp. Its implementation differs in them (so will be troubleshooting).

Sorry to bother your again,I used the master branch of 2022.12.29 patch for my games. After I added many monsters on the map of Alvar, I casted the magic Armageddon near the hive. Then I found that some of the dead wasp bodies were gone when the magic Armageddon was casted, leaving only their wings and stingers on the ground. Because there was a wasp with blue wasp jelly on its body, and once its body was gone, one quest could not be completed.Can you help me to confirm what caused it, or is it caused by the limitation of the number of monsters? If so, how to expand the limitation?

Thank you very much.

in mm6 you can do every promotion quest availiable, but only chars with the class fitting get the reward of a class-levelup
all of the party gets xp and maybe <classname honorable>, etc. (dont know for certain)
thank you,the quest isnt completing tho,i drank from the well adn got the 'something happened' graphic,but dude in the house doesnt recognize it is completed
To be clear:
  1. You spoke to Albert Newton first.
  2. You recovered SP when you drank.
I know in Vanilla you can't just drink-and-go, there's something specific about it, but I can't remember what so doing both of the above in that order should take care of the whatever-it-is.

I also found that when casted the Armageddon in Garrot Gorge, the body of Jeric Whistlebone(with a Two-hand sword) sometimes disappeared, which would led to the failure of the dragon promotion from Flight Leader to great wyrm when it occured. :canthear:

A temporary solution was found, when the issue occurs, executed following on the console:

Code: Select all

Map.Monsters[monster's index].AIState = const.AIState.Active
The monster's body appears, :) hoping to provide a permanent method, thank you.

Check WoMM (recently rebranded to World of Enroth).

For lua you need to understand basic programming, then tinker with existing scripts with Grayface's reference help, and finally try doing your own.

Multiplayer won't ever happen I'm afraid. Not only it would require rewriting basically whole executable (your best bet is WoMM, but as it's remake, it's also really difficult), but also gameplay is not suited for multiplayer.
Unfinished mod by me: MM7 Rev4 mod, MMMerge version.

In the afternoon, I tracked the value changes of Map.Monsters[Monster_Index].AIState in the game, according to the game sequence, the scene and corresponding values of Map.Monsters[Monster_Index].AIState are as follows:
a. See Monster before me--------------> 6
b. Attack with it (not dead) -----------> 0
c. The monster is killed, and the body can still be seen-----------> 5
d. I casted the Armageddon twice, body disappeared. Even if I save the game, the body will disappear before my eyes-----------> 19

After execute "Map.Monsters[monster's index].AIState = const.AIState.Active" on the console, the body appeared, for your reference.

Thank you for your reply!
I found Grayface's reference by your help.
Then I realized that scripts I modified are Grayface's lua scripts.
(However, I couldn't find any open source project about WoMM.)
I'm guessing too the multiplayer mod is very challenging.
Yeah, that was so extremely example.
Anyway, I'll attempt many things for more fun game.

I found in "Castle Kriegspire" , if you give money to the curator of kriegspire, he will also treat the party and remove a series of negative conditions, , no aging and the effect is the same as that of NPC healer master. Can its code replace the master healer's event? :tongue:
Reference Codes in cd3.lua as below:

Code: Select all

	evt.ForPlayer("All")
	evt.Set("MainCondition", 0)
	evt.Add("HasFullHP", 0)
	evt.Add("HasFullSP", 0)
Sorry to bother you again, any of your suggestions are very useful to me, thank you very much.

Hello!

I'm new to M&M modding, so I've wanted to add a new character/face to the mm8/merge, but I can't find a face.txt and faceanims.txt file.

I've read that that you need to generate it by lua console, but I don't really know what command should I use.

Hello friends,

Thank you very much for your great job with Merge Mod.

But I have very big request to you (sorry for my bad English). Maybe I am the only one player in the world, but the main benefit of Merge Mod was for me a totaly full journal. In Merge Mod I expected all the awards, bonuses, obelisks, wells and fountains, just everything in one big encyclopedy. And full list of Awards completed from all three games (MM6, MM7 and MM8). But after completing first three maps from MM8 (Dagger Islands, Ravenshore and Alvar) and Emerald Island from MM7 and completing absolutely all the quests in these regions, I have only 3 completing quests in Awards (Finding missing persons on Emerald Island, Stopping Yellow Fever and Finding Rothnax), 5 Arcomage Wins and Collecting 4.500 in Bounties.

There are some completing quests in Journal - Miscellaneous (Finding Power Stone for Frederick Talimere, Killing all the Ogres in Alvar and Arcomage Wins in concrete pubs, Guild memberships)

But most of the completing quests is not recorded at all. The Seer advices from MM8 are not recorded in Journal too, unfortunately.

So, could you fix it, as it was in originally game, please? I want to have all the completed quests in my Awards screen, it's the main reason to play Merge Mod for me. I like to look at full list of my awards, my completed quests. I know - Winning Arcomage in concrete pubs or Guild Memberships are OK in Journal - Miscellaneous, I think, it is good idea from you. Because it's not so important for conrete Arcomage Wins or Guild Memberships to be in Awards, but all completed main and side quests definitely yes. As it was in originally MM8.

So, could you fix Awards screen for completed quests, please?

I'm loving this mod, thanks to those who worked on making it.

That said, I notice that Artifacts that are supposed to give you Feather Fall, such as Lady's Escort and Hermes's Sandals don't actually give you Feather Fall. Is there a way to fix this so that those items give you Feather Fall like they're supposed to?

I know how to edit artifacts in ExtraArtifacts.lua, but whenever I try adding Feather Fall buffs to those items I just get error messages in the game.

I found some posts many pages ago in this thread (back from 2020 on page 293) where someone links to some code at gitlab to add to ExtraArtifacts.lua and ExtraEvents.lua to correct this, however their changes don't work for me. I think the problem is that the code they posted only works on older versions of the mod, as it was posted over 2 years ago.

Link to the outdated code in question: https://gitlab.com/cthscr/mmmerge/-/com ... 27fc651a39

It works a bit differently in the mod. You should see a message when clicking on the stable that you talked to them about the price fixing. It's not a clickable option in the Stable shop "dialog" like it was in MM6.
