Thanks, Warmonger, for the link... It is not, however, something I was looking for, if only for the simple reason that the Lodman utility, which seems to be the one used for extracting .lod files, refuses to work correctly. So far, I've attempted to extract the contents of MM6 and MM7 .lod files. MM6 files open successfully but do not read any files, and MM7 files' contents are shown as sequences of gibberish text, similar to what one would see when opening non-text files in Notepad... Can anyone tell me, please, why does this happen?

Edit: The same result as MM7's files also comes with MM8. Also, MM7 and MM8 produce access violation errors or something like that.

I use MM7View/MM7Edit by St0rmCat for that, works good on both MM7 and MM6, not sure about MM8 yet. The only problem that it crashes really frequently when listening to audio.

The zip is called MM7Edit, the program is MM7View for some reason.

Thank you very much, this does indeed work for all three games. Don't know what I would have done without your help! :)

Will there be an English version of the website as well?
You can either agree with me, or be wrong...

I think the point of the website was to show all the fan made town projects and not just the HotA ones. That's why you can see the WoG 3.59 Bastion town in there as well.
Back from the dead? Maybe.

To be honest . I'm not to fond with the new towns...altho I would love to have more towns...it just something about the units...looks less better and more like toys...

the town Forge which is not in development anymore (good) contained many weird animations with guns...

I dunno...mythical units would be great...even maybe LOTR town altho many units appear in different towns...

I'm sure its possible to make another bad devilish town

It was necessary to create a new topic (as in the community).
I did not expect high activity...
