The download link on Dream is broken right now, please use the download link at the end of this post.
I started a thread asking for people ideas for a custom map not long ago. The map project I picked up is to make an HoN version of Bejeweled.
So here it is, BeHoNeled (yea nice name I know).
If you don't know what Bejeweled is you can look it up on the wiki page.
You con download the map here: mediafire
How to play
Put the beHoNeled.s2z file into your "game/maps" folder of Heroes of Newerth.
Using swap try to align 3 or more "jewel" of the same color.
Its important to know that this is slow, I need to change the current way I detect a line of jewel but I think it can be enjoyed like it is right now.
This is an alpha version, there is still a lot to do on it, but I wanted to get the impression of everyone first.
Please give out constrictive feedback and also please vote if you think its worth for me to continue working on this.
though for me its a bit too flashy,
or i'm just awake for too long again
i'm excited to see some 'big' maps coming from you when multiplayer custm maps are supported
Sounds nice, I'll download it and try it out later when I have more time.
Really cool! I hope we can see a lot more from you once the sdk is released!
how do you load the map?
Custom Zombie Survival Map for HoN
Okay so a bit of critique if you like:
- colors are imo a tad too bright
- the models idle anim is a bit much movement. I recommend something less wiggly
- You can't really see what "blocks" are disappearing as they just change color instead of vanishing
I'd say those dudes should explode and you can see these guys "drop" from the down. Atm it looks like they randomly change their color.
So much to v1
Yes the color and the model are a must do for a next version if there is one.
I would also like to change the way the jewels "explode" to have some kind of animation and like you said, to make the other "drop" to replace them.
Right now I replace the current color from the one on the top or I randomize a color if there is not on top. But yea, it looks like their color just randomly change.
Keep the feedback coming please, its too soon to know if there will be a next version, but I'm certainly thinking about ways to change it.

HI! Love this map but i have some questions for you about my own maps. When i start HoN choose practise game and my map 1. It is named untitled instead of real name. 2. When i start it it loads alittle bit but then HoN just stops working.. did you have these problems?, what did you do to solve it?! Please answer
Open your map with an archiver like winrar.
Open worldconfig with a text editor like notepad++.
Where you see '<world name="untitled" ...', change untitled to your map name.
Save the file.
Overwrite the worldconfig file inside your map with the one you just saved.
About your map crashing, make sure first that you don't have spaces in your map filename, if its not that, you can upload your map somewhere and PM me, I'll take a look at it if you want.
