Tried it and failed ^^ (/modifier, again). I could send a PM to S2 and ask for some advise. I'm really interested in this. We could make a huge alt_model mod including all the wonderful custom_heroes, with the permission of the authors, ofc.
Including hero models is an easy task, I can put the Hydraslik in if you guys want it. Gotta ask BlacRyu first
Flint and Dampeer are already in "All Alternative Avatars".
I "rewrote" Srs Bsns with <editfile> instead of <copyfile> so that changing values in the entity doesn't bother me anymore .
I'll do the same with the rest of the stuff when I got time.
+ It's easier for you guys to edit the file(s) yourself.
The issue with SOTM remains, I didn't find a way to solve this (yet).
One strange thing though. Deadwood has a walking animation, KotF doesn't.
If you look at the hero.entity they both have a -> passiveeffect="effects/body.effect" <- but there is no file anywhere with that name. Pyro as an example has one.
It's a bit odd
Oh, by the way... is Arachna supposed to be THAT big? This model is really ugly.
It's dead easy to make one for a hero that includes alternate textures only.
I made a .s2z for you (place it in "Heroes of Newerth\game" folder). Just delete it when Awan' includes it in his next mod update. http://www.mediafire.com/?sdh0att032ba8pa
Btw the sound for pirate flint's ministun proc is so annoying that i had to remove/replace it.
Also good idea with the new xml way to mod the files Awan`Afuqya.
Edit: the clown devourer is so boring. we got used to it from halloween. Hybrid Zerg Devourer is so much better!

Ok, I'm done. Check out "All Alternative Avatars" if you want Devourer and Slither.
I don't want to add the models in Srs Bsns because as beautiful as they are... they are not "serious" .
Yes of course all those skins go to the "all alt" mod and not the main one.
Btw do you happen to know if i can i decrease the occurrence of a sound by editing the following line?
"<frameevent frame="9" cmd="PlaySoundLinear ability_02/sounds/cast.wav 400 2500 .75"/>"
I want to reduce the spam from flint's 2nd ability (ministun proc), and maybe make it play only on a minimum 10 secs space between. (you can always replace the sound all together, but i want to keep the new one)
I believe this is a "bug". -> cast.ogg <- should be -> cast2.ogg. <-
The sound file should only play if you finish off an enemy, not every time you land a "special" hit.
I'll open a bug report.
Edit1: Done. This sound will work correctly after the next patch (If I'm right).
Edit2: I believe found the SOTM effect. It's called modifier key="ult_boost" (modifier key="Frost" is Frostwolf Skull) which can be found in ability_04/ability.entity.
The funny thing is that it should work without editing anything.
I opened a couple of practice games and the only SOTM effect I could see (note: tested with a fresh install, no mods) was Thunderbringer and Magmus (default).
Either all SOTM effects don't work in practice mode or I'm blind. Well, I'll pay attention in a real game then ;>.
