Re: Harmondale lore: HoMM3 Contested lands vs. MM7

As for the fights, I guess they happen off-map? You can cross any outdoor map in a couple of hours, and then it's a five day travel to the next one. Plenty of space to fight it out. Travel time is irrelevant here. Just like we presume that Erathia is bigger than MM7 map of "Erathia" that ...

Harmondale lore: HoMM3 Contested lands vs. MM7

Lorebeards, I summon thee. Please help me get things right, because it's driving me nuts, the more I think about it the less sense in makes. So during the course of Contested Lands campaign in HoMM3, Harmondale basically gets independence and a grail installed in Welnin. And from what I understood f...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [beta 23.07.2023/15]

1. ((null)) items will now often spawn instead of duplicated items, but sometimes items would still duplicate normally. still getting a lot of crashes trying to pickup items from the ground at random. overall it seems the update have made it worse. 2. placeholder text on thunderfist mountain entranc...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [beta 23.07.2023/13]

MM7, last version + MAW: 1. stoned dwarves (hehe) were duplicated for some players in medusa mines - one player would cure a dwarf, dwarf disappears for them, but other players found exact same dwarves still standing there later 2. also in several different dungeons, gold and items would be duplicat...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [beta 23.07.2023/13]

One minor inconvenience I have when healing is that, personally, I'd love to use 1,2,3,4,5 after a keybind for heals, where 1 is my own character (just like in single player). And with one of the latest updates, I can actually keybind these buttons now and it works, but 2-5 are always different play...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [beta 23.07.2023/11]

Single target projectiles are really weird vs party members. At some points I tested Firebolt on other players and they were never hit by it. At other times, literally everyone I attacked were hit by firebolt, or the projectile would actually pass through them, yet they would still receive damage. I...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [beta 23.07.2023/7]

I'd argue showing eradicated players as a pile of ash (fire elemental death sprite) is a better way. I know that's not exactly what eradication IS, but still. A scenario of a player dying somewhere alone and other players having to look for their invisible corpse using UI as a proximity tool is yike...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [beta 23.07.2023]

I'd say instead of "MMO" think of Diablo 2 MP implementation (early battle.net). There will never be a lot of people in a single game server, can even limit 5 artificially. People have characters of various levels that persist through games. The characters enter a lobby w/ chat and a serve...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [alpha 07.07.2023/2]

Oh, another thing I always forget to report: Maybe look into how time works in multiplayer. First of all, I think player travelling to a different location at least used to (I havent tested it in a long time) pretty much end up in a different timeline (like some players stay in Ironfist on 22 dec, a...

MM6, [alpha 28.06.2023/3] 1. noticed in castle Darkmoor, that often the new potion sprite will kinda flash in the corner of the screen when moving around, jumping, etc. looks like another of those "support object sprites" issue. 2. when putting Memory Crystals into their sockets in Free Ha...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [alpha 22.06.2023]

I just tested and Friendly Fire factor definitely does affect damage done by character to self with Fireball, even in single player (since that's how I tested it).

Not sure what version is this from, but I just noticed that when I cast Fireballs, they show as MM8 ugly spherical animation on my screen, yet what other players (or at least host) sees on their end is beautiful MM7 sprite explosion. I wanna have beautiful explosion too (: Monster fireballs also sho...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [alpha 16.06.2023/2]

No it is not. You sure? 0.1 factor completely negates most damage to barely visible changes. Never "sure", but I am able to fire Fireballs at point blank and deal almost no damage to self, I don't remember it being so in single player or before friendly fire factor update. I mean I do app...

Re: Multiplayer for MMMerge [alpha 13.06.2023/4]

This is big :) Maybe too big. I'd argue it's a bit too complicated and too much of a stray into custom mechanics territory for a mod that is centered around a feature (multiplayer) instead of gameplay changes. I'd like to reiterate on my previous suggestions if you don't mind, to show how they can f...
