I believe MMPatch v2.5.6 has finally fixed it. The fix can be toggled off (see patch changelog) if that's what you're wondering about.

Re: Elemental Mod for MM7 -- v3.1 holiday release!

IIRC GrayFace mentioned somewhere that you can get full speed on strafe if using in combination with some other key. Maybe not in MM7. None of the modifier keys work for this, and looking at the code there's nothing that suggests variable strafe speed, apart from a single (presumably) debug float t...

Re: Chaos Conspiracy Redone Enhanced

In vanilla MM6, unlike MM7-8, many locations indeed have several possible music tracks. E.g. New Sorpigal/Suttervile has three.

Re: Elemental Mod for MM7 -- v3.1 holiday release!

Fun MM7 fact I just discovered: apparently you can use [] keys to strafe. You can't remap these ingame, only through regedit (resp. KEY_STEPLEFT and KEY_STEPRIGHT) or MMExt. I think NWC just gave up on them when they didn't fit into the two key config pages. (I stumbled upon this while adding the sa...

I actually though it was in German, the first time I saw that link. You can't confirm otherwise until you download, which takes like 15 minutes. So I'd advise explicitly mentioning it's English, somewhere.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 05.11.2023]

out-of-game, there's a code snippet you can put into the Shift+F1 debug console to give yourself GM 10 identify item (which identifies everything) but I don't know it off the top of my head. This should work (with recent enough MMExt): Party:GetCurrentPlayer().Skills[const.Skills.IdentifyItem] = Jo...

Oh damn, I meant "elseif", not "else if". As to why it doesn't work anyway, it's just an example for vanilla MM8, I don't have a Merge install but I'm guessing NameId's there might be different? About the map editor: naturally, you also need to add the changed map to the .lod arc...

Re: Maestro's Augmentation mod for MM7 - continues! v0.2a is here

Try running mm7setup.exe to make sure it's set to hardware 3D? Widescreen won't work with software video, and the textures are probably linked to it, too.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge redone

Must it be a script? That's what the map editor is for. But you imagine you could try something like this: for _, m in Map.Monsters do if m.NameId == 4 then -- Admiral Nelson m.FullHP = 1000 else if m.NameId == 5 then -- Captain Zyrain m.FullHP = 2000 else if m.NameId == 6 then -- Admiral Clausewitz...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge redone

The thing about guards and other pre-placed monsters is that just updating monsters.txt will not change their stats, you do need the map editor (unless MMExt did something about it recently). Experience for monster kills is just about the only thing that always checks monsters.txt, at the moment of ...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 05.11.2023]

I think it would be a pretty big improvement for lategame if blasters were made into just ranged weapons like bows. That would let us use them in conjuction with melee weapons and staffs like Staff of the Elements / Ethric's Staff. And it would look better having them attached to the characters' ba...

Re: Might & Magic 6 mod: MAW; Monsters, Arts & Wonders [30/7/23 update]

In vanilla MM7 at least, you can only notice the cap with e.g. a teacher, an instructor, the Scholar's Cap, and Learning skill above 20. Even then, you will still get additional benefit from advancing Learning further, if it's at Expert or above, just 1% per skill level less than normal.

Re: Might & Magic 6 mod: MAW; Monsters, Arts & Wonders [30/7/23 update]

60% cap is in MM7 and MM8, but not in MM6, I think, and even then it doesn't apply to the 9% bonus you get at Normal or additional x1/x2/x4 base skill at E/M/GM. At least this is the case for vanilla.

Oh, I actually noticed the lack of party buff check when I checked that code the other day. So the Shield spell doesn't work at all? Typically when Grayface refuses to fix bugs, it's because the fix would make the game harder, not easier, so this is unusual! Although it IS a strong buff, it only bec...

Not a bug. You can but feathers from the Circus only (that aren't reagents).
No, in vanilla MM6 you can sell all circus items in Free Haven. It's not really worth it, but the option is there.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 05.11.2023]

The only good reason for restricting stuff is balanced gameplay, which is important even in single-player games because gradual progression keeps the player engaged and makes the effort rewarding. But Merge is already notorious for its lack of balance, so you may as well own it! Trying to limit spec...
