Evil Cavalry, until 2.3.2
« on: July 18, 2007, 07:07:37 PM »
Alright, someone mentioned a "cripple exploit" for mounts...

Does that imply that you can get your swaybacked mount crippled, and then let it heal to get rid of the swaybacked modifier? If so, awesome - and:

1. Is there an "easy" way to get this done?

2. Is there any seperate mod/cheat out there that could somehow be used to obtain a warg on the evil side?

Edit: Something else that "works" at the expense of one cavalryman is telling everyone to dismount right at the start, grab one of their wolves, and then tell everyone to mount again, eh heh heh.  :D

I can give you an easy way to get a warg, but it will involve starting a new game... and it will take some work on your part... okay maybe not that easy, but pretty damn easy in my opinion...

Edit the troop file.  Give an NPC that you will definitely get early on a warg.

The troop file controls what items units get.  So just copy all the items from a troop that you know has a warg into the file that you want to have the item.

It will take you 20 minutes to figure out how this works, maybe a bit longer.  But once you figure it out you can start a new game with nearly every item you want.  You will have to buy the items from the NPC, so it will be like they are traveling store.

Kind of a pain, but it will work....

Ah ha, great idea Liv, thank you! I was just looking at a mod that adds a horse merchant, and digging around in the scripts, but this will be much simpler. :D

In case anyone else wants to do this, this is a good work-around if you want to play Isengard and still have the option of getting wolves:

1. Find your troops.txt file and back it up. For me, it was in C:\Program Files\Mount&Blade\Modules\TLD

2. Next, in troops.txt, find the section that reads:

trp_gulm Gulm Gulm 18 131240 0 34
  89 0 226 0 100 0 408 0 610 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0

3. Change the section I've bolded to make it look like so:

trp_gulm Gulm Gulm 18 131240 0 34
  89 0 226 0 100 0 408 0 610 0 72 0 72 0 73 0 73 0 74 0 74 0 75 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1 0 -1

This will add 7 wolves to Gulm's inventory, think it's 4 great wolves, 2 lesser wargs, and 1 great warg. Should be more than plenty for a game. You can pick him up in Isengard any time - of course you'll still have to buy the wolves off of him. Enjoy!  :D

I love playing around with the troops file.

Lots of fun.

Glad the idea worked for you...

I'm glad too, all I ever play anymore is a warg rider...  :P

Oh, for anyone else using this "fix," remember you have to start a new game for it to take effect. (And the "75" is the Great Warg in case you want to make more of those.)

Look in item_kinds1.txt. The numbers are the order, in other words the first item listed will be 1, the next 2, etc. The index numbers aren't actually in the file. You'll have to count, and it may occasionally skip a number, so you'll have to check and possibly adjust as you go.

just copy/paste all the text in item_kinds1 into an excel sheet. this will make every line into a new row. then all you need to do is delete the first for lines so that itm_horse_meat is on row 3. now every item # is placed every 3 lines, so item #1 (horse meat) is on row 3, while item #75 (greater warg) is on row 225. so when you find an interesting item, just divide the row # by 3.

of course, this assumes that there aren't any skips in the numbering system, so if you do get a different item, just compare its position on the list.

is it possible to do this trick to get warg mounts for the "Good" Faction /yourself?

Saw a topic with pics of a player and 1 of his companions riding them, and been wondering how to do it for future playththroughs.

Do you realize this is a necro of a thread about the 0.808 version? Why would you play that?

ya, just was hoping for a response to my exact question as I would find it neat to have a "friendly" warg. I am just to tired of horses in general, and am a big fan of wargs so ya.. Nothing to do with the patch he is talking about, just wanting wargs on "good" faction which he clearly did some how.

Have posted other questions in the corect area with no response so was hoping by chance he would come back and notice the reply in it and tell me how he did it :).

This shit will get you banned, don't do it. No, you can't have a friendly warg.

 :o

Why would this shit get him banned?

1) he's posting OT in a necro thread.
2) it's annoying.

it's not exactly off topic as I am asking if you can do what he said of adding wargs to a shop only adding it to a good faction shop instead.
I know this post been dead, but since you 2 responded it shows that it possible someone will come and tell me.

But if it true that some reason I could get banned ?_? even though on another post, as pointed out/reminded that there is a guy that posted a picture of his hero and companion, good faction are riding them. -> and all that was said to him is that he cheated to get it and haha.
But ya I don't plan to release a mod or say I came up with it or anything, just wanted to add more fun for me in this already fun mod.
