Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Yeah, I second the incorporation of MM7 Staff + Unarmed mechanics into MM8 for the public release. It might be a bit tricky to do, and perhaps overpowered if we still keep the Staff's MM8 GM bonus of skill increasing damage. But oh well, gotta have it! Personally, I'm not concerned about being over...

Given the mighty sorcery that he creates with the Might and Magic games, I think we can safely say:

Yes. Yes he does.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Should I install BOTH patches, one on top of the other? No, only MM8 one. Some issues does not present in mm8, other were already fixed, i think. In particular, I am interested in the fix to the interaction between Armsmaster and GM Staff. As it is, when Staff reaches GM -- and it works with unarme...

Re: GrayFace MM7 Patch v2.1 [July 7, 2018]

Hi Greyface. Thanks for all your great work for these games. I've been following both this and Rodril's merge. I'm very excited to see the Unarmed/Staff/Armsmaster fixes. If I understand this correctly, fixing the Armsmaster and GM Staff interaction should also fix the fact "of the Fist" d...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Got a question about upgrading to the Greyface 2.1 patch. The Merge comes with the Greyface MM8 patch. Therefore I upgraded to the MM8 2.1 patch. However, I looked at the patch notes and saw that his MM7 patch fixes things that his MM8 patch does not, because of the difference in the games. However,...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

@Mortis
You must have taken the dark path, that was quite the Ninja move :D

@linux
Mortis is absolutely right. In my own version, I adjusted the values on rings and amulets up, as well as changing some of them to 40 -- mirroring BDJ's mods. I think I added in another body slot too, forget which one.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Something I noticed: In MM7 it's possible for GM Enchant Item to create items of up to +17 Unarmed or +17 Dodging. After extensive testing, it looks like GM Enchant Item in the merged project is no longer capable of creating these items since Unarmed and Dodging were removed from MM8. I'm guessing ...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

It looks like the issues with Monk, Staves, and Armsmaster involve Greyface's patch and are resolved with the latest 2.1 patch. Time for me to update! :D

@Stormy @Majaczek Regarding "High Magic Presence" not working right... An issue I've run into is wholly of my own doing. The stonehenge location in the Murmurwoods doesn't work for me. I suspect it's because I swapped the games.lod maps for MM8 from the Merge for the ones that Echo created...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

@Rodril I ran into an odd issue with Bolstering. It has all been working well (really enjoying it, btw) in Jadame and Antagarich. When I hopped back to Enroth -- my starting continent -- no monsters were bolstered. I am level 36, and goblins still had standard hp. I tried leaving the map (New Sorpig...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

In case anyone else runs into the weird "trillions of xp" issue, the command to set a new xp value is: Party[0].Experience = 000000 (substitute 000000 with your actual desired exp value, and 0 in brackets for 1, 2, 3, 4 for the other party members) There are no asterisks around the new xp ...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

@Rodril
Hey, thanks for the info. I had wondered exactly how Bolstering works. Still don't know why the Coatl make my current/needed XP soar into the quadrillions.

I'll try the patch idea for my edits to the .lod files. Better to keep originals intact.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Also, does anyone know of a way to edit the "of Carnage" spell effect to not damage party members? I've seen it in another mod, but I don't remember which one (maybe one of BDJ's?). I'd love to make it so for my Merge concoction.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Found an oddity. When I slay any Coatl with Bolstering on, I receive the "Trillions of XP needed to Level" bug that Xfing found earlier with cacti. There are a few interesting caveats: I started in Enroth, and ran to Jadame early (I'm only level 11). Bolstering affects Coatl class monsters...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

One quick note in case anyone else has this issue. In New Sorpigal, I wasn't initially able to get the Cobra Eggs buyer to buy my Cobra Eggs. I discovered this was because I stored them in the 5th character's inventory. I suspect there's something hardcoded, as there was no 5th character in vanilla ...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

Quick followup that I don't have a solution for at the moment: Echo did some cool retexture work in Ironsand and Shadowspire. I haven't figured out how to add those textures -- simply adding them in to bitmaps.lod or 00 patch bitmaps.lod doesn't work, and replacing bitmaps.lod entirely is a disaster...

Continuing my Echo Monstrosity and Merge tests. I just did a fly around of the outdoor maps with my existing lvl48 Jadame party after swapping in Echo's Games.lod files. HOLY COW I forgot how epic her map repopulations are! Apparently the new Games.lod caused all of the maps to respawn. Incidentally...

So I just downloaded MMArchive and I'm exploring pulling apart LOD files and putting them back together. I'm going to see if I can take some of the things I really liked from Echo's mod and splice them into what Rodril's merge. @Rodril In your Tables folder, I see a lot of .txt files that would othe...
