[MOD] Call Of House Hardabar

Post by bongobeat »

Hello there,
House Hardabar is finished and ready to play.

You received an invitation to castle Hardabar in the Malanian Empire. Despite the risk of war between the Malanian Empire and the Theareonan Empire, you decided to accept the invitation. Gather your stuff and call your companions.

It has been designed for a four character party, do not try it with less than four characters.
Also, do not try to import a party from another mod that use custom skills, or you certainly will have a game crash.
Please, read mod description file first or the description within the game.

Dropbox link:

Nexus link:

The following link is only for the mod description and credits:
Note that the nexus link contains already these files.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rry8k4cmydux4 ... 3.txt?dl=0

New version is up. V204R. List of changes is in nexus website.

Features:
-A long mod with bossfight that can be challenging, depending of your "combat" skills.
-Healing crystals are not on every level.
-Shop system, with item to buy or to sold.
-Most epic items can be sacrified for additional xp or rewards.
-There is some new skills.
-Firearms (and cannons) damage have been increased to be more usefull.
-Spells should be learned before to be casted.
-Champions need to be fed not only with food, but with water too.
-There is some of Zimberzimber's conditions (and others), bleeding, burning, etc... that can make your play experience rude. 8-)
-Tons of secrets.
-Main quests and some side quests.
-Different environnments and various custom assets.
-Possibility to forge some items
-Possibility to upgrade some items with power gems or superior gems.

Known Issues:
1°)This mod is really, really, really insanely big, unfotunately it is also long to load.
Due to that, the mod cannot be loaded in full graphic details or simply crashes during the save. This is the most serious issue for big mods.
To avoid that, It is strongly recommended that you patche your grimrock executable with the 4Gb patch, which can be found at:

Code: Select all

http://www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php
Otherwise the mod should only be launched with texture quality set to medium or low.

Nevertheless, in the very late part of the mod, I got report of save game crash, in that case the texture has to be set to medium or low.

2°)You will encounter some cinematics: do NOT GO to the game menu while in a cinematic, it will desynchronise the music and the cinematic.

A few words:
I have started it since 6 years, of course not at 100 % on it all the time and hopefully it is now playable.
Many modifications were made, test - retest.
All dialogues, story, item description, etc... are in english. I did my best to write everything correct (but my english is very bad in case you didn't already notice), and other people have helped me to fix most faults, nevertheless, it is always possible that you find some mistakes.
I made the mod big, simply because I like long adventures.

Thanks/Credits:

You're just in time :)

I was hoping for some more openworld mods out there with shops :)

4 years of development!
That's insane!


I'd be happy to test out your mod and meanwhile enjoy it :)

And I would be happy to help you with all the English content in your mod.
My 2nd language is french btw ;)

I don't know wizardry, but yes, I'm a fan of Might and Magic ;)
But more the turn based strategy games.

Thank you. The world what I wanted to do is not so big compared at what I have done. I had to restrain myself. But it is big enough as you need something like 40-50 hour, to finish all the mod. Note that you don't need to do all the mod to finish the main quest.
It's not exactly 4 years. I have taken long pause between that. I think that 2 years is a correct estimation. Give me time to finish my test, and I'll upload a new version.

I will finish my personnal testing, then I will upload a new version. I've not full time to play actually, so it may take a while.

Hey Bongobeat,

can it be that your private message inbox is full so that you don't receive new private messages? If yes you need to delete some old messages in your inbox folder.

Hello Banaora,
no I just have trouble while connecting me on the forum. I often come on the main page, all is ok, then when I clink on a sub forum or my private messages, the browser said that the connection with the website is lost or something.

Do you mean a video with all the screenshots? Or an ingame video?

If it's the ingame video, I don't know how to do that, I have no program for that.
