  1. Like I said, I wasn't planning on taking money. It was more like, Buy Me a Coffee?, as an example. My issue isn't whether "the mod" is allowed. It is about mods in general. As I have stated above, my interpretation of the EULA is that it is strictly disallowed to make mods. Yet, HoN seem to embrace it. So @ElementUser said modifying XML and Lua is fine. That's a nice affirmation, but doesn't clear all the fog. I.e. there use to be a mod called Portrait Enhancement, which made the center UI look slightly different. I was able to find this reddit post that has a image
  2. I see your points, but I wouldn't trust it in a court of law. Just like you mention, there is a reason there is judges and lawyers. They may have a different interpretation of things, disassemble could be interpreted as more general word, or they may think decompressing could be seen as a "translation". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I wholehardedly disagree. Adding .s2z files does alter the behavior of the game, thus changing it. Just because there is an interface does not give you the right to use as you wish. It's like saying just because I leave my door unlocked, you're allowed to use it. It may b
  3. I know how the honmods work, and I would say, it's a very gray area and matter of interpretation. Extracting the zip files may be interpreted as decompiling, or disassembling, or translating somehow. I am not a lawyer, so I do not know. But I could see one argue the case. I have been working on a mod, and in order to get it to work. As I have yet to find good documentation on things, I have been forced to run a lot of analysis on various triggers to figure out what they trigger on, and what data they send. This could be argued to be some sort of analysis and/or "reverse eng
  4. Unfortunately, the EULA does not distinguish the two things, but rather just classifies everything as disallowed. But I assume what you are saying, look the other way when people modify the former. Additionally, some cool UI mods have modified some of the original UI textures. Distributing the derived work in any way would be a breach of copyright and the EULA. Like before, paragraph 2: Furthermore, there is some cool stat websites, honstats.com and hon-stats.herokuapp.com, which make the use of icons and textures of the game. This redistribution of the copyrighted material
  5. What's the legal status of modding the game? Forgive me if I am opening a thread unnecessarily but I couldn't find any topic on the matter. From the EULA, I take it is not allowed. From the paragraph 2: Furthermore from paragraph 6, kinda says the same or similar things: My only conclusion of this is that it is not allowed. You are not allowed to modify it, and in the process of making a mod, you often look into the resources files, which you are not allowed. As any analysis or even decompiling is disallowed. Yet, modding seems to be encouraged by t
  6. Nice, I've been wanting to make something similar but time has never allowed. Awesome job!
  7. Why is this issue rejected? It still occurs in patch 4.9.4. Perhaps this was not the "next patch", if so, then which is?
  8. Don't know, all I know is: If it is a recent replay, you can enter the replay through the match history.
  9. So, I can conclude... If you know you'll get banned. You may do whatever, you can grief as much as you please. Because regardless, you'll only be banned for one violation, and all other accusations will be droppped. Personally, I'd say that's a flawed system.
  10. Ban could be extended? The bans are not permanent are they?
  11. What do you mean? I thought this message, "Not corroborated - Another ticket was used to take action on this offender" meant, the person you reported was punished by another report in the same game. But If I understand you correctly, that may not necessarily be the case. Then why is the ticket disregarded? Let's say we have an offender, who intentionally feeds one game, he is reported by someone/severals, and another game later he griefs by buying all wards and placing in the well. Again, he is reported. Now you mean that if he is banned/or action is taken for the first
  12. Could be that, because I think once when it happened, I was spam clicking purchase because I was just about to get the gold, and in the middle of a battle. But I remember dying, and after respawning I could still not purchase. If you would to trigger this short time period prevention, how long is the cooldown to be able to purchase again?
  13. This has happened to me as well at 2-3 occurrences. Disconnecting and reconnecting did not resolve the problem. I also had to restart the client in order to be able to purchase items. Sadly, I don't know how to reproduce it.
  14. The cursor is suppose to be locked when ingame (to the corners of the game), so to navigate the map. Sometimes when tabbing back into the game, the game does not lock the cursor into the game and when trying to navigate the camera, the cursor surpasses the edge of the game and continues out on the other monitor. Similarly sometimes when tabbing out of the game, sometimes the cursor is still locked in the game. That is the cursor cannot move out of the monitor which the game runs on (trying to do so will only get it to the edge, and in doing so will actually move the came
