Oh I forgot the special ability file. Uh yeah, it's just a copy paste of Eowyn's Shield Maiden with a new name, haha.

Does the ability SpecialAbilityImrahilSwanKnight exist?
A commandbutton has it but other than that i can't find it?


Edit: Okay, didn’t mean to highlight this as an answer but, I did manage to locate the error. I had accidentally swapped two fields somewhere. Ah, proofreading. Thanks for your help! Go to the full post

So, to be real frank, this is my first time modding BFME2.

 

I'm working on a ROTWK mod which until recently was chiefly a balance overhaul that moved around a lot of the gameplay dynamics in favor of siege-oriented gameplay. Think super tough buildings and such. I like it when walls come crashing down in vast, knock-down drag-out fights. There are like 30 orcs to every Elf, and every Elf machine guns out bullets like they're bored. It's neato.

 

Lately, I decided it would be neat if each faction had a relatively equal number of units and sufficient equipment for a game style in which you desperately require Siege damage in order to actually win anything.

 

So, I think to myself "Imrahil would be a good addition to MoW. Solidifies cavalry superiority by buffing and supporting their mini-hero, all is well in the world. You can just copy-pasta Theoden and swap him into a Knights of Dol Amroth skin. Sweet, useful for gameplay, and mega lazy because I don't wanna dive into custom Asset stuff on my first go."

 

He's in the hero list, he's in-game, the AI even builds the fella.

 

Just one problem.

 

If you click him, Eru instantly disintegrates the entirety of Arda with nary an error message.

 

After some research, I have concluded that I have absolutely no idea why that is.

 

In addition, I believe that SOMETHING in my SkirmishAIData file is causing a crash but I have nooooo idea what.

 

Anyway imrahil is attached below, and runs with Rotwk 2.02 v7 (because I didn't realize 8 was a thing).
