Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

The modified data itself (and probably the map definition files as well) can be distributed as part of the mod package as they're relatively small after compression. I'm mostly thinking of pulling assets (Anims and Music and other graphical stuff) specifically from already-installed MM6/7 to save on...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

What would need to be done to create an installer script that pulls from already-installed MM6/MM7? We'd be able to make a "small download" option for easier sharing, plus it'd be a lot friendlier for mod sharing sites (since we'd no longer be including the original assets from MM6/7 in th...

Probably the most important buff Blasters could receive is making the Hive Core immune to anything that isn't a Blaster (as it should be).

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

Yeah, if you're concerned about reputation effects, the MM6 quests will have the widest swings - Candelabra is -200, Exposing the Traitor is something like +5000 (enough to go from Neutral to Saintly in one go, I think? I almost always have to do this right before I go get Master Light in vanilla), ...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

I don't have an exhaustive list of what sounds work and what sounds don't, but in general the MM6 and MM7 characters will be missing a lot of their sound events simply due to the engine change. The MM8 engine is looking to fire sounds for events that didn't exist in MM7, and MM7 has sounds for event...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 12.07.2020]

And to quote myself from the thread you quoted: It's comparable to using Baldur's Gate voice sets in Icewind Dale - MM7 and 8 have more voice clips than 6 did, so there are situations where the MM6 heads say nothing when they logically should. MM8 (the basis for the merge) has different conditions f...

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 19.04.2020]

Is it possible to change which music plays in a given dungeon? Could I have a unique music for every dungeon in the game if I wanted to? I'd like to know.. Depends on which game you're in. MM6 has a rotating soundtrack (one location can pull more than one song), MM7 and 8 have a static soundtrack (...

In fairness, you can completely customize the racial skills by modifying Race Skills.txt - at one point I gave dwarves all the armor skills.

Skills are still restricted by class. Knights don't get Regeneration so a Troll Knight will have no meaningful Regeneration.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 19.04.2020]

sounds like your install is corrupt (this problem happened to me and several others).

Reinstall Might and Magic 8 to a new folder, then install the Merge onto that folder, then test the game before trying to further update the game with patches.

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 19.04.2020]

certain skills were moved to different locations, to account for MM7/8 not having "general skill" guilds.

For Merchant in particular, check the local temple.

You're not the first person to be utterly confused by The Tower In The Breach, and you won't be the last. That button in your screenshot is the correct thing to push (trying to reach them from the outside triggers the warp effect), there's one in each "spoke" of the tower. You should be ab...

You need to go through the mine.

There's a handful of switches you need to hit in the tower. You'll know when you've hit them because your party will be moved upwards.
