View Full Version : no gorguanas??? :S

12-16-2009, 01:04 PM
I am playing a normal mage and have come upon the part of game where only thing I can do is kill whether k'tahu or gremlion, I would really appreciate to have Gorguanas in my army but I can't find them ANYWHERE to recruit, anyone got any idea why, is it a bug? :S

game is random .. it cant be plenty or no at all .. check save scanner in mod section of forum maybe you missed it.

I am too dumb to do this, I scanned the files and can't open savedata file, is it of any help if I mail you my save game?

Open it with notepad.

can't do, the hourglass icon is there like forever :confused::rolleyes:

You need to right click on the savedata.rpt, then select open with and then select wordpad.

Yes because there's so much text in that file it'll work just wait some time ;)

Try Excel then. It may speed up the process :)

I believe she clicked on the savedata text file and not on the savedata rpt file - I did the same thing first time, notepad doesn't like loading 8megs of text ;-)

The rpt file is usually very small (sort by size)

here's a screen of my fight with k'tahu. armageddon spam at the end ftw...

is gremlion much harder? :)

If you play on normal, Gremlion is a snap. Get 2 tanks up close to his left and right arm and have your other troops destroy the towers he summons. Use stone skin on both tanks next to his hands and equip some stuff with magic resistance to reduce the damage of his mass attack.

That should take quick work of him - provided you have enough money to replenish your lost troops against K'Tahu... That fight must have hurt :)

zilgadis is muuuch easier

12-17-2009, 05:24 AM
Woah, those are some heavy losses. Yikes.

12-17-2009, 10:51 AM
lol yea it took me many tries :)
but, I mostly play only adventure games, this is the only strategy except HoMM III, IV and V I played so its not that bad I guess :)
I didn't use stone skin here, but I will on the gremlin!
does the game end there? :(

12-17-2009, 11:47 AM
There stil baal to beat yet ;p

12-19-2009, 09:01 AM
here is gremlion... with my dream team... ok, maybe cannonneers weren't such a happy solution but siege ability wasn't bad except they died too easy and fast.
Massive losses as expected lol, thankfully didn't get so many spawns as in last tries.
Any tips on baal? So little money left :(

How u lost 50 paladins?? no stoneskin on them or what? :P

12-19-2009, 09:19 PM
I used spellbook mostly to resurrect and to eliminate spawning towers faster :/ Horsemen had stone skin one or two rounds but then I had to use spellbook for previously named purposes and boy, did he hit hard sometimes!

12-19-2009, 10:25 PM
anyways... Baal second try :confused:

wish I knew he would let chunk of earth fall, my mages, archers and ents fell down lol :rolleyes:

I guess I'll reroll another char now... care to help me to check if I'll have wanted troops in new game? :)

12-20-2009, 06:59 AM
Well, the save game scanner can do that for you, but I guess I can help if you have any problems with it...

Congrats on your victory!

12-20-2009, 11:01 AM
I'll get my boyfriend to try and decipher the process for me, if he will be as dumb as me, I'll bother you then ;)
And thank you, I wish the game lasted longer... :(
