Thread: Hero Party Limit

    Default Hero Party Limit

    I have created 24 hero parties and I believe I've reached the limit. Is there any way around it? Can I extend the limit with some unconventional editor?

    I suppose I never tried specifically increasing the hero party count via hex editor, but as far as I know, it is the limit unless you want to hex editor.

    There are workarounds. You can use the same Hero Party for different things, for example changing the objective of the party leader upon creation, although you will need to use the RC3 editor to add actions to hero party triggers as otherwise the normal editor crashes.

    And an advanced trick you can do is use the "Remove from Map" action to create customizable Hero Parties, with a When Created trigger. In other words, you have a party of a full 16 units, and then when they're created, certain members of the party get removed. So you could have 2 8-party groups within a 16-unit party, and then you change a flag or something before spawning the Hero Party to decide which half of the hero party you want to spawn, and the other half gets removed.

    I don't know your skill level or familiarity with the editor, so this may not be a good idea to try out if you're just getting started. But thought I'd throw it out there. If you're early learning then no, practically no way unless you are more efficient with your hero parties.

    Okay, so I don't see myself finishing this map really. But if anyone wants to finish it or make their own version, feel free.
    In the spoiler there's info about the map and the problems to fix.

    (Don't click or download if you have any intention to play it, it's really not finished)
