Hello,

I use homm2 GOG version in dosbox.  (SP or MP on one pc.. no network play)
The main reason is the built-in graphic upscaler, which can create (up-converting) sharp and  relatively 'good quality' picture for 1080p or 2k monitors.  Original 640x480 is too blurry ..

I would like to modify some creature 'value' for balanced gameplay, so
I tried to use the excellent UBP tool, but as I see, it just works with HEROES2W.EXE. Sad (windows executable)

Q: Is there any -easy- way to edit HEROES2.EXE values? (dos executable)

Plz help. Thx in advance.

Hello! Unfortunately I don't seem to remember any user-friendly tool for editing the DOS executable. Yet, you can register on Handbookhmm.ru and leave a reply in this topic, in case AlexSpl could write a special release of UBP for the DOS version of the game.

Also, see Modding Questions, top post by GodRage.

Hello mantra Smile
Sadly you must edit it by hand, with an hexadecimal Editor. Smile
But, it's quite easy once you open the Heroes2w.exe into your hex-editor. Wink
And share with us your final work !! Smile

A few months ago I had dug into the GoG .EXE and compiled all my findings into an Excel spreadsheet.  I just updated the sheet , link can be found in the Modding Questions thread mentioned by Orzie.

I have listed all relevant offsets  for the GoG edition.  The data bytes should be super easy to find and modify with a hex editor.
