The Modifications forum has undergone an overhaul

Mods, Apps, Textures and FAQs

-----------------

There are currently two methods for using mods.

The first is the original method of using .s2z format files referred to as "s2z mods". Downloads for s2z mods are located in the first post.

The second method is a third party application called the HoN Mod Manager which uses .honmod format mods. Downloads for honmods are located in the second post.

It is recommended that you do not mix mod types and only use one type.

Note: The s2z mods below have a 'Files Edited' field below their descriptions in this color. This is important to pay attention to as two s2z mods can not edit the same file. If you use two s2z mods that edit the same file, one or the other will not work.

You can not mix any s2z mods that have the same file listed under their description.

If you wish to use mods that edit the same files, check for combination mods or use the HoN Mod Manager.

Combinations
Since you can't use two mods that edit the same file. MaxGhost has been working to circumvent the problem by merging the mods into a number of 'combo' mods. Check out his thread here

MaxGhost has also written a guide if you feel like combining mods yourself

Q:
How do I type in color in-game?

A: You use ^XXX where the Xs are three numbers representing Red, Green and Blue ranging from 0 to 9.

For example ^900 would be red, ^090 would be green and ^009 would be blue.
You can also use ^r ^b ^c ^y ^m ^v ^w

Q: How do I install mods?

A: There is a miniguide at the top of this thread

Q: What's all this stuff about s2z and honmod files?

A: .s2z files are renamed zip files. The original method of creating mods was to edit the game files and then repack them into a new s2z file. The game loads through the s2z files starting with the base game files and then adding on.

As a result of this method, two s2z mods cannot edit the same file as the changes will conflict and only one mod or the other would work.

The only way multiple s2z mods that edit the same file could work together was if they were manually combined.

The HoN Mod Manager is a new program to automate the combining process through the use of an instruction xml file.

Q: What mod shows hero respawn times?

A: Barter's Improved UI

4. Updated the filter mod .honmod. Should be fixed now.

No, because Notausgang has to update the mod itself first... he lives in europe, he won't be on for a while.

It doesn't? Hmm... I'll check it out.

Edit: I tested it and it worked perfectly. I did a small change to the 'y' positions though so it doesn't overlap with the scoreboard, but it works fine here.
