List of bugs (HotA)
Name Type Description Fix Tested
Mechanic and Engineer's Breath attack against 2-hex units Bug When attacking a 2-hex unit from the middle hex above or below it, the fire breath follows the direction of the Mechanic's or Engineer's movement rather than the direction of the sword-arrow. The issue remains unsolved. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 18:06, 25 January 2024 (UTC)
Whirlpool limit Bug The Whirlpool does not engulf creatures if the only stacks available have a Fight Value over 99,999,999. The issue remains unsolved. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 11:48, 30 January 2024 (UTC).
Starting experience Bug Heroes with default level 1 start actually having some random amount of experience in the double digits. The issue remains unsolved. 1.7.0, --Csaros (talk) 20:45, 25 January 2024 (UTC)
Rally flag bonus Bug Visiting a Rally flag correctly applies the standard +1 Morale +1 Luck bonus, but also erroneously applies a +1 Morale -1 Luck or -1 Morale +1 Luck bonus (apparently, it seems to be random changing weekly, but not necessarily every week, as confirmed by Turnam (talk).). The morale part of the bug is related to the gain stated in 0x4210 as the fec0. Replacing it with 4040 will double the bug; replacing it with 00 00, or f.e. fec1 or 4141 removes the morale part of the bug (morale +1) The Luck part, despite Rally Flag's luck function increment being in theory located at 0xa4212 seems to be activated by something else, either a different code in that file or HotA.dll. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 13:38, 29 January 2024 (UTC),
Disassembling combination artifacts in the hero exchange screen in allied multiplayer Bug If you're playing a game with another allied human player and go to the hero exchange screen you can disassemble an artifact like the armor of the damned from their hero's equipment thus crashing the game for yourself. I imagine that disassembling a combination artifact in another players backpack when it is full would also cause a game crash The issue remains unsolved. 1.7.0, guest273 (talk)
Fire Shield - Bad Luck interaction Bug Fire shield damage ignores Bad Luck effects.
This issue is potentially intended, as it favours the Inferno town, who decrease enemy luck and have the only unit with permanent Fire Shield - Efreeti Sultans.
The issue remains unsolved. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 13:56, 24 February 2024 (UTC)
Launcher notification Bug At times, the launcher notifies players that 1.7.0 is out and attempts to update, even when the game is updated. The issue remains unsolved. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk)
Cornucopia's pick-up message. Text The message says "Town" instead of "Horn" Editing HotA_lng.lod / artevent.txt solves it, as this is where the issue originates. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 18:06, 25 January 2024 (UTC)
Jeddite's biography. Text The biography says "Zenofex" instead of "Xenofex" Editing HotA_lng.lod / HeroBios.txt solves it, as this is where the issue originates. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 16:46, 13 February 2024 (UTC)
English Localization issues Text In the English version, some things are still appearing in Russian.
* World on Fire: The "Laboratory" Tower town.
* Beyond the Horizon: Tan hero east of Burton.
* The Sacredcove town in the campaign now appears as a Russian name in Cyrillic script.
* Province: Map name, description and timed events haven't been translated.
* Tomb Raiders: Olgoi-Khorkhoi at 104, 91, 1 have a description in Cyrillic script.
The H4Fact.h4c in HotA_lng.lod can be edited to fix translation issues with the campaign.
The Sacredcove can be edited by altering the H2Terror.h3c in HotA_lng.lod.
Province map exists as "[HotA] Province.h3m",
1.7.0, Legate (talk) 03:25, 3 February 2024 (UTC), Csaros (talk), → Phasma 21:21, 25 February 2024 (UTC)
Beware of Demons! map players Map issue It seems the new update replaced this map, and now the human player is no longer teal, but red instead. As a result the player is forced to play as demons, when that's the opposite of the map concept. Editing "[HotA] Beware of Demons!.h3m" fixes the issue. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 17:39, 19 February 2024 (UTC)
Battle of the Sexes and Battle of the Sexes (Allies) map heroes Map issue The Map has not been updated for the new HotA heroes. Editing "Battle of the Sexes.h3m" and "Battle of the Sexes (Allies).h3m" fixes the issue. 1.7.0, Csaros (talk) 10:09, 23 February 2024 (UTC)
