Re: Current state of MoM IME

actually to me this makes perfect sense. Without some kind of QC guidance, the project could end up going in like, 5 different directions and that really can't help the project at all. If anybody really wants to help, I think it's totally fair, considering that this is implode's project, for him to...

Re: Master of Magic Re-revisited

There is a MOMhack program that will allow you to make many changes to the game through a GUI. I don't have this anymore, but I'm sure someone here can help you dig it up. You can also find some of the hex editing info (as it pertains to what address means what) somewhere on the web, or even on thi...

Re: Master of Magic Re-revisited

It's an edited version of MOM 1.31 put together through hex editing. Off the top of my head, files that were changed are magic.exe, wizards, help, desc, itempow, itemmake, spelldat.. might be a few others. If you replace your 1.31 version with these files, the game will work with the changes. <*bow...

Re: MoM IME Expanded

[...] Potentially botches up the game unless the game has the items/spells/units stored in separate files... and indexes, evaluates and devises strategy (for use and also against) them as part of the boot/loading/end-of-turn sequences. If there is no AI, it becomes a hell of a lot easier, mind... T...

Re: Master of Magic Re-revisited

Quite a few here were interested in the version of MOM that I run. Sorry I've been away for a month so I haven't gotten to it until now. You are welcome to use my copy of the game (or at least pending recommended changes) if it strikes your fancy. I'm not sure how many "special" files there will be...

12069 - but it was not worth it ...

I have the game somewhere as a savegame, but I don't bother. It was *the* perfect game - you need exactly that: Perfect luck, and patience without end. And I used the save-reload cheat, of course. I started with three life, one nature, one sorc, and one chaos as spellbooks, and myrran, alchemy and n...

Re: nike shoes

how much about a nike shoes ??every one know?? It's not that this is the only place this is happening to. But spammers are one pain in the a** (and THIS version is not the worst that can take place). I visited the phpBB forums - the answer to this problem is not easy. @implode: Do you have any idea...

Re: Autodumping Units/Buildings - no good idea, and here is why

I think at this point we're mostly agreed that it's not a bad idea in principle. However, in light of Dyslexic Q-Thief's comments, to really be worthwhile and make resource disruption a truly viable tactic any automated conversion amongst resources should be done at the end of the players turn, rat...

Re: Undead heroes

Just a question... its not possible to get undead heroes is it? By throwing life drain at them? If you did, I wonder if they'd count towards your limit of 6 heroes ... Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that one wizard you get as a super-hero when choosing dark spells a Vampire, and, thereby, undead?

Re: Autodumping Units/Buildings - no good idea, and here is why

Another issue with the game fixing any resource problems is balance. When all is said and done, I see the final multiplayer of MoM IME as having resource disruption as a legitimate and worthwhile strategy. I support this idea, yes. If a wizards have no food surplus at all and a Call the Void nukes ...

Re: Autodumping Units/Buildings - no good idea, and here is why

Going back to your comparing against real life for a moment: If we considder that the only real powers in the world are yourself and the other wizards, and every wizard is trying to be on top, who are you expecting to be able to buy rations from? Your enemies aren't likely to help you from yourself...

Re: Autodumping Units/Buildings - no good idea, and here is why

Thank you for your extensive and thoughtful answer. That's a lot of game mechanics to be throwing in, and some of it still wouldn't make any sense from a player standpoint. It may be a very personal POV, but what I suggested, is an automatisation, of what I - and many others - would do anyway: Micro...

Autodumping Units/Buildings - no good idea, and here is why

Hi, I found this in the accompanying "differences"-doc: # If you were producing insufficient rations or gold to support your army, the original Master of Magic would kill off your units. However, even if you were producing negative gold and had no gold stored so had no gold to pay for maintenance on...

Localisation issue with german MoM

Hi, some of you might have noticed their game (0.9.3.1) crashing. Using the *_debug.exe I found out, "SPELLS.LBX" wasn't found, as is the fact. The simple reason: There is no such file. Is probably only exists in US- (or perhaps canadian? :D ) versions. :idea: As a temporary workaround, You can stil...
