Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

The aging effects make more sense in the context of unnatural ageing. MM6 is rife with it (mostly as an excuse to seek out the Fountain of Youth before tracking down the four memory crystals), MM7 and 8 not so much. I know the NWC-era games had "die from old age" but that's not a thing fr...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

Oh guys btw, in the meantime I replaced the flavor texts in Items.TXT with the same ones from the old Tracker - sent it to Rodril months ago but I'm not sure if he's incorporated it yet, feel free to use these in the community branch too. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yZMpqfYfGNLsU8Y8u5jo98e9U-sP...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

This would be the last entry on every priority list on what to do about MM. But I think it would be a really cool touch, if liches were the only ones who would actually get stronger as they age. As an undead they obviously won't die and they'll probably just keep on studying forbidden books about d...

Many Merge players too - we've had some discussions regarding it with them etc, would be nice if some more Merge contributors joined...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

Practically all of these are very reasonable suggestions and I really like them personally. Ohhh, if we're allowed to make suggestions, I have a few (modest) proposals, ranked in no special order: 1) Lizardman NPCs in Tatalia? I guess it's supposed to be the Erathia-occupied parts but still, did Cat...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

In MM7: - It went from -50 to +50 I suspect it's -10000..10000 like in MM8 actually. Well, you get the highest and lowest possible reputation categories at 25 and -25, and I remember having -40 in Stone City after killing all the Trogs - it made all prices extremely low already even despite the med...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

The reputation system was overall simplified between MM6 and MM7, while only the barest of basics of the MM7 system remained in MM8 (reputation only for donating to charity). The basic differences are that in MM6: - Reputation went from -1000 to +1000 - It decreased over time if you didn't do anythi...

https://i.postimg.cc/26kK7sNv/newflavortext.png I did some work today finally fixing the redundant item names/flavor texts that came with the merge due to stuff not being changed between MM6 and 7, or just general laziness. I'm running the file by Rodril at the moment, and if he likes it, it should...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

Sweet update! Some of these features were long awaited. Are there plans to co-opt the more obvious and basic commits of the community branch into the main project? EDIT: Nvm, I saw the merge request on Git. Also, found some interesting stuff on this website: https://tcrf.net/Might_and_Magic_VIII:_Da...

Not quite sure, but that might require the Unlocker, which is an optional extension. I do think some race/class combos are meant to be eventually accessible in the base merge, such as mino sorcerers etc.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 19.04.2020]

BTW, an unrelated question - think taht with all the heavy modding to the engine that's been done recently (and less recently) it would be possible to restore the functionality of instant targeting spells from monsters working on party members? Such spells have never worked - they were mostly featur...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 19.04.2020]

I asked Rodril for directions so I can help with updating the flavor text of different items who have it identical (mostly MM6 and MM7 variations of one item), we'll see if I can help there myself. As for stability - I haven't noticed any crashes other than the not yet ready hi-res MM6 interface.

I just thought that with so many quick spells it can be difficult to remember where is w...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 19.04.2020]

Hey - as far as the non-relic versions not having painted sprites while the painted versions do - I think it's nothing more than a pattern-matching error. The fact that the relic versions have indeed been repainted is probably the reason why the regular versions have been left in the game as pickups...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 22.09.2019]

As one of "just another modders" I'd say you should be able to try and compare before choose the final default. All the racial skill thing is far from perfect (well, I can call it broken as it is now - and I try to fix some things). Sure, this is quite an undertaking, so it requires lots ...
