Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Ah! Thanks for the tip. I'll check that out. Edit: Found a 4gb patch at Ntcore.com. I applied it to mm7.exe. I loaded a spare save at the area where the crashing occurred, and the CTDs persisted. On the plus side, I was able to easily approach the Arbiter from the west instead of through the pass, s...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Got a couple of bugs to report, both involving CTDs -- one minor and one more significant. The minor: As part of the "Find a Herondale's Lost Shield" quest in Harmondale, there's an NPC who wants amulets in exchange for plate armor. Before you get told to seek plate armor, that part of tha...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Thanks! It was essentially a 3 step process in Gimp. Move image 7 pixels over, Layer>Layer to Image Size, Export. Took just a few minutes to do the female versions of all the armors. Now time to go and enjoy the game and your mod :D Edit: Turns out, just a couple armors had no room to the left. Most...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Great news! I figured out how to get Gimp to simply move the image over within the background. It was the "Fit Layer to Image" option. There still isn't room to move the image to the left, but I figure a little missing leg or shoulder strap is a small price to pay for the rest of it mostly...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

I played with Gimp a little more, messing with Layers and Transparencies, getting in way over my head, and discovered that the armors really are shaped just right. I was moving the armor as a layer on top of a paper doll, trying (and failing) to figure out how to get Gimp to remove the blue backgrou...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

That would make sense. I was wondering how the position of the box within the paper doll was determined. If it's a fixed positioning, then you have a fixed area within which to move the image. That's the part of the problem -- at least with the Plain Clothes (probably others, too). There's no more r...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Yeah, no dice. Changing the canvas size (adding those columns of pixels) didn't change anything -- at least not with Gimp. Maybe you have better luck with Corel Draw? I'm beginning wonder if it might be a flat out mismatch between Maestro's female armors and your new paper dolls. His paper dolls and...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Hmm... Okay, so I've been playing with Gimp. There's definitely an inverse ratio between the power of software and its user/beginner-friendliness. Got it to save in a format that MMArchive would actually open (Gimp is too smart for poor 20 year old MM7 :P ) I tried increasing the side of the canvas....

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

I gave that a try. I'm becoming more adept with Paint, so if it's a simple resize and fill or something, I could just do that to the hand full of armors I'll actually be using in game. Yeah, so when I open up the bmp in Paint3d, then do anything at all to it, then save and re-inject, the blue backgr...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

I tested it with plate and chain. Same offset. Going to try adding the paper doll icons from a fresh download of Maestro's mod to see what that does. Edit: No change. I'm eager to hear what Anubis says. I used a fresh download of the 3 files from Nexus Mods, on top of a fresh Gog install. I tried re...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Well, I don't really play dwarves either. I mainly mentioned them to help troubleshooting, in case it helped point to a root cause. Don't worry about the dwarf/drake armor on my behalf :D If nobody else experienced it, I may just try a reinstall. Very odd. I placed the items.txt file in the Datafile...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Hmm .. I wonder if I did something wrong. I followed the instructions precisely, as far as I can tell. Everything seemed to install correctly. What I'm finding is that the armor is displaced several pixels to the right of the paper dolls. I have seen this with the Plain Clothes you start with as wel...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Awesome! That fix was what I was waiting for. Downloading now, then firing 'er up. Thinking ... Are there any decent artifact staves in Rev4 (Redone)? I love the potential of the monk, but I remember there being a dearth of staves. Not a problem in the MM678 Merge (Staves of the Swamp and Elements f...

Re: The Chaos Conspiracy Redone

Indeed. I've had the same crash. It occurred in Bog of Tuonela as well as Kriegspire. It seems to occur when the weather is in "super-fog" mode. The only fix you can do for it at this point is to go to the Inn in either Tuonela or Kriegspire and sleep it off for a day or so until the weat...

Re: The Chaos Conspiracy Redone

I'm probably a quarter of the way in, exploring the Bog of Tuonela. I've run into a pretty serious crash. First, a quick comment on the Morgana quest from above: I remember having that issue when going through the original Chaos Conspiracy. I think it was because the quest required both killing Morg...

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

Kinda figured, so not likely. Well, I can still dream.

Meanwhile, once you get the spawn situation settled, I'll have the Rev4 redone to check out. I've been trying your CCR today, and I'm quite impressed!

Re: MM7Rev4modR1 Redone

See, now this is what I get for being gone for a while. Last time I checked in, your CCR mod was still in development. You've also up and redone the great MM7Rev4?? Fantastic!

Now, for the ultimate dream of mine ....
... What might it take to integrate Rev4 into the Merge? 8|

Dude, you are like my spirit animal or something. This CCR looks amazing. Downloading now. Then I hear that you've redone BDJ's other great work, the MM7Rev4? Next on the list. Then I see that you've also fully patched Echo's awesome monstrosity into the MM678 merge? And fixed the graphical glitches...

Re: Echo's MM8 Monstrosity Modling v1.0

I have simply dropped replaced the Merge's map files with Echo's and it worked. The only bug was that the volcanic looking grey soil in Shadowspire looked like normal healthy brown earth. If you can overlook that one visual oddity, then everything else was fantastic. I will add though, that, of the ...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 2.02.2019]

I've noticed another oddity. I'm wrapping up Jadame (after starting on Enroth for 15 levels, and jotting over to Antagarich for Unarmed and Dodge training). I altered mapstats.txt to cause all maps except the dragon caves to respawn every 6 months -- except ones that are set to not respawn, etc. I'...
