Thanks for the update!
I'm curious what was the problem with AI buying knight units out of nowhere. Is there some interesting nerd story about that bug?

There is, but in Russian.

In short, it is harder to implement 2 Dragon upgrades than it seems.

Basically, when you mod a game, you have to interfere with some procedures occuring in the EXE file. When you touch the wrong procedure, it becomes broken, and many wonderful things can happen.

Earlier implementation of Dragons was tickling the AI in the wrong way, so there was a handful of problems in v0.8.0.
Some people reported the Knight stacks appearing from nowhere a nice challenge, but this is not how we meant the game to be played for sure.

Yeah, I've got the same when trying to be lazy and installed 0.8.1 over already installed 0.8.0 Smile

Then I just installed everything from scratch (H3 SoD > SW mod 0.8.1 > HD mod) and it's fine now.

So in your case - make sure you install the mod according to the latest instructions.

You were not supposed to install v0.8.1 over v0.8.0.

But, you can fix the situation easily. Change the contents of list.txt which is located in the Mods folder:
Code:
WoG
The Succession Wars 0.8.1

Or, you can simply delete the Mods folder and uninstall HD Mod. After that, you can install H3SW v0.8.1 with no problems. HD Mod is no longer required for playing the game, but still recommended to get rid of some crashes related to old Heroes 3 sound library.

Nothing so interesting.

"There are 2 hard problems in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-1 errors"(c) Leon Bambrick.

That was the third case. Third upgrade was made by merging some old alterbranches code (basically, when Black Tower is built, town just switches to Red Dragon - Black Dragon pair of 7 lvl units instead of Green Dragon - Red Dragon one).
And in one of its numerous routines I used wrong stack offset, something like [ebp+16] instead of [ebp+12], so, when AI looks into dwellings, in some cases he can see not valid creature id, but town type id (0 - Knights but also peasants, 2 - Wizard but also archers etc).

PostSubject: 8.1 works on Android Exagear   2019-02-15, 19:05

First thing, Congrats to Orzie and the whole dev team for the 8.0 release and fast 8.1 bugfixes release Smile

I was off for some time but I've managed to install latest 8.1 version and WITHOUT HD Mod (just H3 Complete + 8.1 mod) it is working
on Exagear Strategies on my Samsung J7 Android phone Smile

So hopefully I will have some time now to test the new version more thoroughly Smile
