Game Mechanics

Some unobvious aspects of game mechanics are described here.


MMExtension v2.2 + MMEditor v2.1

MMExtension is a rich modding environment for MM6-8. It features a complete level editor, uses Lua scripting language, lets you use all commands of internal M&M scripts language (evt commands) and lets you do a lot of other things. Must have for modders! After the first run of an MM game you can also edit some tables in Data\Tables folder. For example, you can change stats and available skills of classes.


MMArchive v1.2.1(Mirror)

Fully-featured M&M and Heroes 3 archives editor. Supports all archive types except ".hwl".


LodCompare v1.3.1

Obsolete, fully incorporated into MMArchive. Lets you compare two lod/vid/snd archives and see which files have changed. Lets you create a new archive containing only those files. Thus you can minimize size of a mod by distributing only this archive as a custom LOD to be loaded by my patch or by merging it with user's archive using LodMerge. Source code (Delphi 2006)


LodMerge v1.1.1

Lets you merge two lod/vid/snd archives together. Source code (Delphi 2006)


Txt Edit v1.3.1(Mirror)

Txt tables editor for Heroes 3 and M&M.

The Chaos Conspiracy mod for MM6

The Chaos Conspiracy (TCC) is a huge mod for MM6 in two parts. It has its own new story, monsters and even outdoor maps (in part 2). Made by BDJ, Vladimir-Maestro, Jeff and Hodge Podge. I also took a small part.

MM7Rev4Mod

MM7Rev4Mod is a big mod for MM7 made by BDJ before TCC. It changes characteristics of monsters and items, adds a lot of new quests, but still keeps many old ones. Pascal aka Asterix15 contributed graphics of some items. To install, extract the contents of this archive into your Data folder and delete new.lod file. This version requires my patch.

Maestro Mod for MM7

Based on Rev4 Mod. The game is rebalanced, there are many changes in graphics and a few in quests.

Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on MM8 engine

Start on any continent with a party of corresponding classes, travel to other continents and face monsters with boosted strenght on them. In particular, it's a great way to play through MM6 story with HD resolution. I only briefly tried it out though.

Files from BDJ's site

Since Big Daddy Jim's site no longer exists, here are some files that I've saved from it.

Modding Tools

Classic M&M editing tools are mm8leveleditor and MM7View. With MM Map Viewer you can view M&M maps and properties of their elements.

Sites

The most important English site about classic M&M is Celestial Heavens. telp.org is also good, but there's a bug in the forums configuration – if you post a link, you're likely to be banned by spam-filter, so be careful. You can find links to many other MM projects on Celestial Heavens forum .
