Editing Hero Biographies

Postby Willow » Oct 26 2007, 15:03

Does anyone know if there's a way to edit the properties of the heroes (ie, biographies and skills) globally instead of individually for each map? (Sort of like the Facetool for Heroes IV?)

I'm not aware of any tool, though hopefully one is in progress.

You may edit directly (in some TAB respectful editor) herobios.txt and other txt files from h3bitmap.lod. First you would need to extract them and then just place them in Data folder. Changes take into effect with game restart.

You can extract them with resedit, generally all files starting with hero.. :D , have something to do with them. You may take a look at my forgotten heroes portraits too. (Which will currently works best in Sod)

Thank you Pol! You are a genius :)

PS: Do you know what difference gender makes in the game? For instance, in the map editor you can change a character's gender (male or female), but what difference does it actually make inside the game?

Maybe but not for this ;)

I think that it's not making any difference. It's only quick way how to edit the preprepared bios.

Good Luck :tsup:

You can also write a script in ERM so that you wouldn`t need to extract/replace .txt files. Look at HE receiver (fe. HE:B1/$ changes hero bios) you`ll find there all you need. Such script won`t be hard to do - if you`ll have some problems there will be always someone to help :)
The gender makes no difference, it`s only needed in 'personalized' messages like "Caitlin gets cursed... She will loose half of spell points each day for a week." So in these script you simply place value of variable containing hero name and hero gender and this way you have personalized string for all heroes regardless of their names and genders.

You can also change things with the Rebalanced Heroes script. Just open up the ERT file and reword it how you like.
