Re: Working on an extensive MM7 mod... here's what I've got.

I didn't change spells. That's one of the things I'm waiting on.

Re: Working on an extensive MM7 mod... here's what I've got.

It's not yet made. I've made progress in getting some things done, but there's no build as I'm still waiting on being able to do certain things.

Heroes III spell hacking

I'm looking for some reference regarding editing spells (schools, damage, levels) in Heroes 3, which I have seen done in hacks but cannot find any information on doing myself. Assuming that it will require hex editing, and would appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Quick question... will the following check a character's base skill or will it factor in NPC/equipment bonuses:

if evt.Cmp("RepairSkill", 1)

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Thanks! I'm not entire sure about the "limits" verbiage... what exactly do you mean by removing them? Means you'll be able to edit existing houses, but not add new ones or only add a few. Gotcha. I've been coming around and actually managing to figure out how to use use MME lately (would ...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Well, damn, that makes life a lot easier.

On a similar note... how much of the contents of 2dEvents.txt controls the wares (types and treasure levels) of a shop and how much of that is hard-coded? It's one of the few text files I can't really make much sense of.

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Code: Select all

function events.CalcStatBonusByItems(t)
   if t.Stat > 50 then
      for it in t.Player:EnumActiveItems() do
         t.Result = 50
      end
   end
end


Is this what I'm after, then?

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

You can use this event for that task: https://grayface.github.io/mm/ext/ref/#events.CalcStatBonusByItems It gets table as parameter, you can analyze "Result" filed and cap it. I see the pieces... sort of. But I don't see how they fit together. My best guess is: evt.CalcStatBonusByItems (R...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Also curious... what are the odds that +Stat bonuses could be flagged by the system as unstackable like +Skill bonuses are? Would let me balance around higher (i.e. much more useful) boosts earlier on without things going completely off the rails later on. I suppose the alternative would be to have ...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Thank you! For right now, I'm really just wanting to look at it and see if I can figure out what it's doing since I'm still learning .lua. (I'm ALSO holding out the hope that the potion structure is similar enough in MM7/MM8 that editing potion effects in MM7 should be a simple matter of isolating t...

NPCText, damn, I looked RIGHT past that! Am I able to add strings to this as necessary, or am I limited to only the blank spots that I have? And ok, that's what you meant by sprite events not working... fair enough, I can use option one with little difficulty. And now that I have an understanding of...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

So..... basically, I have two options. It looks like the simpler one is just to do this: evt.Global[389] = function() local CurrentPlayer = math.max(Game.CurrentPlayer, 0) if Party[CurrentPlayer]:GetRace() == const.Race.Goblin then evt.Add{"BaseSpeed", 1} -- (if Goblin, +3 Speed) elseif Pa...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

I take it "merge mod" is that other major thread I see up there? I guess... starting just with the potion effects as an example, how much of it is really just taking that code you provided and looking for a different offset? It really doesn't seem like much actually CHANGED in MM8 otherwis...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

I've been talking about Might & Magic VII this whole time... have you not been?

(Oh, i just saw the bit where you mentioned that this only works with MM8... not sure how I missed that)

So... how much of what we've been talking about is invalid now?

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

To make example work, all actions you have to do are: 1. Put "RemoveItemsLimits.lua" into "...Scripts\Structs" folder. 2. Create "Example.lua" in "...Scripts\Global", open it with any text editor and paste code there. So, I place the RemoveItemsLimits.lua int...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Ok, so possibly stupid follow-up question, then... is the Potions.lua file in the structs folder required beyond that point, or does it exist solely to generate the text table?

...ok, yeah, that is a stupid question. There's no way that Potions.lua isn't required.

Re: How exactly does Disarm Trap skill work? (MM6)

So, here's a question I'm actually not sure of the answer to off-hand... do bonuses from equipment or NPCs factor in before or after skill mastery bonus (i.e. double/triple level of skill)?

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Something you may be able to tell me, though... artifacts and relics. I see examples on GitHub of how to ADD effects to them, but how would I go about removing them do you know? These effects are hardcoded, only way to remove them is editing .exe file. If you familiar with disassembly, you can use ...

Re: MMExtension v2.1 + MMEditor v2.1 Level Editor [Apr 22, 2016]

Editing skill bonuses is definitely possible - at least if you're using existing bonuses. I just recall Greyface telling me awhile back that he hadn't added hooks yet. Guess I'll have to defer to him. Something you may be able to tell me, though... artifacts and relics. I see examples on GitHub of h...
