i used these 2 tutorials.

//createaheropowers.inc -first block from scratch using template of other powers
//the first block of code was enough to make the game not crash at startup
//middle block from system.ini
//the third block i copied most of it from the earthshaker power. i added it hoping that it wouldn't crash at all :(
//still crashes after i summon the CAH :(

deleted lines from specialpower.ini

i'm 80% sure that the game is crashing because the code in createaheropowers.inc is incomplete/incorrect

Try changing the specialpower enumerator, and are you sure that the:

AvailableAtStart = Yes

should be yes? If im not mistaken it should be No, because the CaH doesnt start with it enabled :p

what would i change the enum to? i tried something like SPECIAL_CAH_SUN_FLARE and it crashed at startup

 

also i put it as the 5th power my hero has. however when he loads it's just blank. then the game crashes. there's no icon even though i selected the power

Choose an existing enumerator, that is not used for a spellbook power, which works similarly to what the sunflare does :p
