No Icons within Equilibris Map Editor / Crashes

Postby QuentinT » Jun 11 2019, 4:48

Hi everyone!
I downloaded Equilibris yesterday, but sadly I am having trouble with its integration into the map editor.
For the game itself it is working fine.

Problem is, every category added by Equilibris is filled with a "blank" square. As soon as I click on one of the squares, the editor crashes (has stopped working...).
No item is found in any Equilibris category, just blank squares.
I was able to add some items (for example griffin helmet) manually, but I guess that is not how it is supposed to be done.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit with a Retail "Heroes of Might and Magic IV - Complete" Edition.
I have the main game, TGS and WoW installed in german language.
I used the camp_ed_sfx and heroes4_sfx to prevent checksum error.
I installed the standard (not tournament) edition of equilibris complete with campaign editor upgrade (not the russian one).
As a final step I replaced the equi.aop in the Data folder.

That's how it looks in the editor:

I tried full deinstallation and installation of the mod and the game but to no avail.

Do you have any ideas how to get this working?

Adding the items manually would be an option, but I managed only to find about 6-7 items manually, for the rest I would need a list of some sort (if it exists).

Greetings, Quentin

Karmakeld could help you, I think. You could PM him, if you are in a rush?

Hi Pol, I saw that post before but it didnt help with my problem.
Well, to be honest I am not sure how to "refresh" palettes.
I know how to reset them, but then all Equilibris stuff is gone - is there a way I am unaware of?

Yup, reset them. The point is in removing equi.aop and let the map editor create a new ones. Which will be correct.

Dunno, but you problems may come from 64bits windows, in case that you would like to reinstall the mode ensure yourself that no AV interfere and setup/programs have set up compatibility to WinXP.

Sorry, been absent lately. Well it appears you got all the additional files right, and as Pol suggested, you should try to delete the equi.aop which I believe you already did. As written already this resets the editor pallette. There aren't that many new objects in the Equi 3.51 release.
3 artifacts, Quest Hut Camp fixed and the Might walls are just about it for new objects. Most changes are within the game file itself.
If you're seeking additional objects I can recommand my H4 object package found here on CH.
