That was my thought as well, but I have yet to try it.

Re: Heroes IV 'skin pack'

We are now hosting it. The link is https://www.celestialheavens.com/homm4/Homm4Skins.zip . The user should be warned in the readme.txt file that using the name new_mod.h4r will overwrite that file if it currently exists. For example, playing Lamentia's Story, that file holds the custom portraits. So...

Too bad CH didn't host the original pack.
Kalah, how about hosting this new one, so the link doesn't expire?


I have asked admin if we can host it.

Re: H4 changing objects/wish list of new objects

The Barrel is infact the Wine Keg, Satyr Dwelling not a Quest Hut :) Just shows you how long I have been away to mis-ID that. :rofl: I think the Heroes player base is small and especially Heroes IV, so for right now on my campaign I am restricting myself to only WoW level items. Players will need E...

Re: H4 changing objects/wish list of new objects

Ok, thanks. Since most of the objects are rectangles; it's not surprising that they fit slightly different.

Re: H4 changing objects/wish list of new objects

Good work; is the barrel quest hut new; it looks familiar but it is not in the standard equilibris, only the wagon hut was added in it.

Re: Add mirrored map objects

I don't understand how to activate them. I tried renaming them in editor and then launched the game, but the same old portraits and bios remained. Are there specific heroes you must use or some other procedure you must follow.

Re: Unfinished map I originally made a year ago for the collab. campaign (HIV)

One his last posts he mentioned serious health problems. So we can hope for the best. Robehagen sent me a PM, several years ago, he was considering putting a group together to finish the map. But nothing came of it. I think he had .96.

Re: Unfinished map I originally made a year ago for the collab. campaign (HIV)

That's a shame but there are many maps out that suffer the same fate. Old timers may remember GhostWriter, the second map I ever playtested was his the City version .92. Health issues intervened and it was never finished. It was a great piece of work but just not done.

Re: Add mirrored map objects

Actually the one thing that would be nice is if additional heroes could be packed into a file and added to the data folder like the new_mod.h4r file. My biggest issue is I am running out of heroes to customize. Since all three campaigns (assuming I finish the third) are a continuing story; I am care...

Re: Add mirrored map objects

Well I will try to continue to monitor the developments; I'm hoping that all the mods will be as compatible as possible. As far as my campaign goes; it has been tough just trying to unwind where I was going and at the same time deciding how to get there. Most of my time has just been staring at the ...

Re: Add mirrored map objects

Good news indeed; I've started to dabble again on my unfinished campaign. Once I relearn why I scripted things the way I did, I can move forward. Then I will have to wade through the different mods out there and see what's compatible with what. That is equilibris, the HD mod and the Heroes IV greate...

Re: I have issues with my h4

I am sure there are those who can give you some help. To aid them they will need to know is it the standard Heroes IV, or is it Gathering Storm or Winds of War. Before applying any patches you need to know that. At https://www.celestialheavens.com/homam-iv you can find a complete list of patches inc...

Re: Map Editing from Scratch in MM6-8 Engine?

I do not know the answer, but it has been done. The Chaos Conspiracy being one. One of the more knowledgeable individuals is GrayFace; he has published patches and has aided several people who have tinkered with those 3 games. You might PM him or just continue to wait here.

This may be a very interesting topic; let's however, keep any political vitriol out and maintain civility. I am thinking about a lot of my own country citizens; who have extreme views.

Re: Might and Magic E3?

One reason the MM communities are barely hanging on is the fact UBI tells us nothing in advance. So if nothing is heard from company sources; there is little chance we know anything.

Many sad losses already this year; now Sir Roger Moore as well. A different but enjoyable 007; and the Saint.

Nice to see you pop in now and then HP.
