  1. Eeeh... where can I download it again?
  2. I sent a pm to that profile. Also- the description has a pretty outdated video + not many people will know anything about it from a profile description. There's no Steam link as well.
  3. One damage can't be stronger/weaker than another in Battle Realms, unless we talk about resistances and weaknesses. You can't compare like that. Piercing is unique because most of the game units don't have a resistance to it. Shinja's damage: 25 (cutting) [No poison] Crossbowman: 8 (piercing) [No poison upgrade] Bandit: 13 (piercing) [No poison upgrade] UPD: Utara's basic damage: 25 (piercing) and Gaihla's: 20 (cutting). Both of them deal as little damage as Shinja. All 3 of them have poison value on true. All 3 of them deal their 25/25/20 damage with poison value on false. Although Diseased One deals 22 magical damage. And it works fine with poison value set on true. After this, I can only conclude that poison overrides any type of damage but magical. The question with "Poisoned Weapons" remains unanswered and the mystery- unsolved. I've also discovered some poison related parameters in Data_WorldVariables: DefaultPoisonDamageTime (3) and PoisonInitialDamage (0,5) I assume these are not related to the "Poisoned Weapons" upgrade. Poison is supposed to only reduce health overtime, nothing else. It works as it should with X-bow and Bandit, and we, most likely, have to investigate the "Poisoned Weapons" upgrade. I'll contact one of my long time buddies, a skilled BR modder, and ask him if he knows anything. My another programmer friend is working on an easier way to edit battlerealms.dat file!
  4. Reading old BR related topics, dated 2006-2010 is so weird.. People used to actively discuss the game and were friends with each other and then just... everyone left.

  5. What's the basic damage of your unit, besides the poison effect? Diseased One has the same poison damage, if I'm not mistaken, but his damage is strong. That's probably because his basic damage is magic. I'm not sure, I'll dig further into that. I also need to see Utara and Gaihla, because their damage didn't seem strong in the game too, and they both have poison. The poison works properly in Bandit's and Crossbowman's cases. But it appears only for 0,5 seconds and then dissapears. I'll run some tests and then post an update.
  6. Yeah... that's a profile of BRJokerz, I see that. But... there's no information like the one I've posted. Actually they should've already posted it. Or wait... Is that KoMiKoZa?
  7. Hey! I see this Komi guy quite a lot in almost every BR related place, but can only wonder why isn't he registered on here. He posts a lot of useful information and I've stumbled upon something very interesting: It's the "Complete Battle Realms F.A.Q." which has some detailed information about BR on Steam, BR on GoG, BR 2, Lair Of The Lotus and BR Legends. It has recently been updated! For some reason, it's not on here and I've decided to take some of the information from his Steam topic and post it in the forums. Can you pin this, if possible? Battle Realms- Complete F.A.Q. [steam, GOG, BR2, Lair Of The Lotus, BRLegends] by KoMiKoZa (Last updated: April 9, 2016) Topic Source -> http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/311702665/405692758725727656 [] Trustworthy sources you can get the information about Steam BR from (aside from the "Announcements" on BR Steam Greenlight): Liquid Entertainment Official Twitter -> https://twitter.com/goliquid BR on SteamDB -> https://steamdb.info/sub/53565/apps Battle Realms Jokerz YouTube Channel -> https://youtube.com/brjokerz [] F.A.Q. - Beta and BR on Steam: The first part is dedicated to the beta that I've never seen and Komi saying he's the only beta- tester. Doesn't sound trustworthy, but the screenshots of his game library (closed beta- testing) look legit + I really don't see any sense to lie. So we'll skip it, you can find the full version in the source link. Here come the principal questions: Why the hell is it taking so long? Ed Del Castillo: Komi: There have already been cases when some programmers left Liquid in the middle of this all. Financial problems included. Many people left Liquid after the BRLegends kickstarter fail. The lack of people here influences on the project. What's the current progress? Ed Del Castillo: What should be updated in this BR? Komi: Basically "new and improved" as said by Liquid in the project description. I'm pretty sure, at the first release, we'll see the original BR:Wotw with the principal improvements (such as bugfixes, screen resolutions/widescreen/multimonitor and Steam multiplayer). Ed said future BR updates depend on how well it'll sell on Steam. So if BR is successful- something will definitely be added. I personally think some of the units need rebalancing so I'll try talking to Liquid about that as I send them the complete-BR-bugs- report. Why Liquid doesn't update us on here? The page looks abandonned. Ed Del Castillo: Komi: I've also suggested my help in moderating the greenlight page- no response. Well, no outsiders I guess? []Battle Realms 2/Lair Of The Lotus/Battle Realms Legends I want to play BR2:Lair Of The Lotus! Where can I get it? Ed Del Castillo (October 15, 2014): Komi: Source- Battle Realms Legends Kickstarter. Update #11 -> https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/840772947/ What's up with Battle Realms Legends then? Komi: BRLegends had been in works since.. around 2012. And was discontinued in 2014 due to the lack of fans' support (KickStarter fail: 50k$/100k$). This was a huge blow to Liquid. So it's only BR on Steam? Komi: Yep, BR on Steam and GOG. Trust me, Liquid is working on it. (My beta doesn't just get updated for nothing, right?) Why is there no KickStarter for SteamGOG_BR? Komi: That's what Ed answered about me questioning him why there's no KickStarter for BR on Steam: That's basically the end of the topic. Some information looks weird to me and I don't quite understand Ed's point. But hey, let's hope BR's gonna blow Steam up one day!
  8. You don't understand the point of my questions! I didn't even mention the piercing damage, where did you get that from? I'm telling you that poison effect on Shinja's blades is the only damage, that gets read by the game! His 25 of cutting damage, which is his default (strong) attack, doesn't get read. All of his attacks are weak. If you still don't understand, compare it yourself: 1. Use default battlerealms.dat and test Shinja's damage on the units, weak to cutting. 2. Remove the poison from Shinja's blades via SITUVN's Editor (Data_Weapons-> WEAPON_SHINJA_POISONSWORD-> Poison (True->False) + Poison Time (10->0), and test in on the same units! See the difference! @MrFish, please, respond!
  9. I was so happy reading this topic, thought I'd see a fresh and big BR community, active discussions and players, until I opened the advertised forums page. I've visited the forums - completely no BR related activity. So many people discuss other, totally not related to Battle Realms stuff, but nobody discusses the exact BR related stuff. This (Lotus Clan) forum is more active in terms of "BR stuff". I'll agree with BRJokerz here: I don't see any lack of moderation, considering the fact that I'm a new member on here and my posts will need approval from a moderator before they're shown. And I get the approval around 5 minutes later. This means that the moderators are here! And the main focus... It's not really important, the site has it's own Battle Realms focused section, and that's great! After all, the "Lotus Clan" name comes after the Lotus from Battle Realms + the forum was originally created long ago because of Battle Realms. Tell the "expert players' community" to be active on this new forum then! Because I don't see any activity on there, and that just repulses me from joining the forum. Such a great point! 8 months have passed since this message and neither the categories, nor the people were moved. "The Science Behind The Law Of Attraction And A Specific Person" is not what I want to see, going on that forum! Hey, I don't mean to sound harsh or anything, but I'd rather stick to this forum. It's got active people who discuss BR stuff almost everyday!
  10. Hello! I was very surprised to find (alive) looks- like skilled modders! I'm relatively new to this whole BR modding thing and I use (and patiently wait for a new version of) SITUVN's Battle Realms Data Editor, instead of any HEX editor that's been suggested. I know it doesn't have all the options, and not too many opportunities to mod, but hey, I have to start from something easy and... user- friendly. So after deeply studying battlerealms.dat with that editor, I was really sad that a lot of game features don't properly work, or don't work at all. This game really needs a new patch! But I'm here not to rant about it, I'm here to ask questions and I hope you guys can answer them. So my first question will be about Shinja. We all know he deals weak damage. But do we truly know the cause of that? I do! (And probably some of you have already known that for a long time): Shinja is supposed to have the same cutting damage as Ronin= 25. Knowing his attack speed, his damage in combat should be significantly different from the one we face now, once (if ever) Shinja enters the battlefield under our command. I've figured that the poison effect overrides Shinja's basic damage, instead of being an additional-to-cutting damage. That's why Shinja's current damage is so weak! Using the mentioned editor, I've disabled the poison effect on Shinja's weapon and witnessed him now dealing his normal 25 cutting damage, which makes him much more useful than before. Does it mean Shinja's damage is magic if the posion effect overrides it? (I mean it's a logical idea, I know we hear sounds, but it's easily set in the editor (The same with Wildeye, he does cutting damage instead of blunt, though we hear blunt sound+ on- screen effects) And is there a stable poison damage value? How does the poison work? I'm sure it works differently with Crossbowman and Bandit's poison. Why is it bugged in Shinja's case? Thanks in advance!
