New Year Offline Tournament 2015 by HandBookHMM.ru!



Russian Warlock ссылка
Poland Necro łącze
French Sorceress Archangel Castle


FOREWORD: In order to refresh the homm2 gaming experience and deatomize the community of Heroes 2 players, a team of enthusiasts created this New Year mod! This development allows to change the game atmosphere towards the New Year theme, i.e. modifies several creatures (Goblin, Orc, Sprite, both Dwarves, Halfling, Boar, Mage, Ghost) featured in the tournament and transforms the Tree of Knowledge to a beautiful Christmas Tree!



The New Year mod is a graphical mod which does not affect the classic gameplay and is not obligatory. However, we still recommend to install it to have more fun on the holidays Smile

TOURNAMENT RULES

I General Info
1. Everyone can participate. To do that, a player should read the rules, download the starting savegame, fulfill the tournament task and send the final savegame file to VDV_forever@bk.ru. The preferred name of the savegame is after the participant nickname, for example AlexSpl.GX1.
2. Required game version: PoL 2.1. This means that your game executable file should have the v2.1 indicator (right-click on the file -> Properties -> Version). So that you can use either GoG-version of Heroes 2 or any other official release of the game. ATTENTION! Changing the game version in the process of the tournament game is restricted.
3. During the tournament process it is strictly recommended to make savegames for each day which will serve as a proof of your walkthrough.

Victory Condition: collect the largest amount of the new year icicles in 15 days (artifact named "Evercold Icicle", final savegame should be made on Day 1, Week 3, Month 1).

II Restrictions
1. Use of the cheat codes and special programs allowing to change savegame data in the fair copy of the tournament savegame is strictly forbidden.
2. Making a move by a hero which fled/surrendered in the same day of fleeing/surrender is forbidden. Buying such hero is allowed in any day.
2.1. Buying and moving the player's own hero which was dismissed/defeated in battle is allowed only on the next day of his dismissal/defeat.
2.2. It is restricted to rehire your dismissed hero with the army different from the starting one.
2.3. If a hero fled/surrendered/was defeated in battle during the enemy's turn, it is allowed to buy and move him immediately.
2.4. AI heroes are allowed to be bought/moved only on the next day after their defeat.
3. Using the Haunt spell and the trick to "feed" the Ghosts is restricted. It is allowed to make only one fight with a certain Ghost neutral army camp, with savegames before and after the fight.

It is allowed to use some programs and utilities for the faster development of the savegame playing strategy. See Programs - English-speaking users should press the British flag icon and enter the Programs and Utilities section.

Discussing the tournament in the Internet is allowed!
Also it is allowed to dig the Ultimate Artifact without collecting the Obelisks.
DIG HERE:
 

III  Instructions for the participants
- Download the tournament savegame and place it to the GAMES folder of the original Heroes of Might and Magic 2 directory.
- Launch the game and load the tournament savegame.
- Send the final savegame (named after the participant's nickname, for example AlexSPl.GX1) to VDV_forever@bk.ru
The final save must be made on the 15th day of the game, i.e. the day 1.3.1.

IV Determination of the winner.
The players who are able to collect the largest amount of the Evercold Icicle artifacts in 15 days will be considered winners. The secondary criterion (for those who collected the same amount of the icicles) is a sum of primary parameters for the hero with the largest one. The third criterion is the amount of Gold resource the player has.

V Virtual Awards
The winners who have an account on http://handbookhmm.ru/ will gain the following virtual awards (in the info profile and under the avatar):

1st place - "Grandmaster of Heroes of Might and Magic II 2014 offline tournaments"
2nd place - "Master of Heroes of Might and Magic II 2014 offline tournaments"
3rd place - "Expert of Heroes of Might and Magic II 2014 offline tournaments"
Those who will be able to collect all Evercold Icicles on the map regardless of the game time will also get this bonus helmet:
In this case both savegames will be counted - the primary one and the one with all icicles collected.

The winners who have an account on http://heroesportal.net/ will also gain the local virtual awards according to the rules of the portal.

VI Real awards
The winners will get these awards regardless if they are registered on any websites (http://handbookhmm.ru/ and http://heroesportal.net) or not:

That ghost is made and animated by me.
However, that's true, your idea of the ghost with a new year hat was one of the things that motivated us to launch this tournament, so you can be also credited for it for sure Smile

You did an important job of polishing the forum design Smile I wouldn't have time to explain the tips and tricks of making the graphics fitting to Heroes 2 anyway. I had a lot of technical problems in the beginning since there are some special things which should have been considered.


By the way, it would be good to have this tournament also announced on the main Archangel Castle newsfeed. Do you have an ability to translate all info and make a short info for the newsfeed? This might interest many old and new French users to participate, and visit the Forums of Enroth too Smile

Yes I am the H2 manager in ArchangelCastle, you can be sure I will make something to promote this new year H2 mod on AC! Very Happy

If a day you have some spare time, it may good that you post something about what specificities are needed to make an H2 sprite. Smile (in some month or so, when we are less busy ^^)

I speak read and write english daily but still there is english sentences that I really didn't understood at all. :s

I also replaced the "AlexSpl.GX1" by "GodRage.GX1" because on Archangelcastle nobody (but you and me) knows who is AlexSpl, so it will be much less confusing. Smile
