About Hera

I'm sorta new on the boards so please forgive my ignorance.
I'm just wondering what I need to do in order to download the semi-public beta version of Hera. Also is it possible to edit the game entirely in Res Edit without using Hera?
Thanks in advance.

Just because I spend a
lot of time thinking
doesn't mean that I'm

check out the semi0public beta topic- Hera's grea, it's also user friendly-except for the random and important ID's for stuff never expl.ained.

I believe that it is possible to edit it completely in ResEdit, but is is EXTREMELY hard and I only know of one person who can do it, Slug.

The truth is that you can't edit Ares' data files in ResEdit only any more than you could mow the lawn with a pair of fingernail clippers. Sure, you might be able a change that you can notice, but it's not just hard -- it's impractical.

Ares' data formats can't be described with RedEdit templates. Therefore, you need a tool like Hera to alter Ares' data.

Exactly. Slug was skilled with ResEdit, so he could effect some cosmetic changes- Swapping things around, and such. But even he couldn't edit the statistics, and sprites. Until now...

Ahh yes....
Good ol' Slug...

From what I hear he was quite the brain.

Well, if no one noticed, I did upload the Race Templates file to the guides (by the way, that is mine). What the Admiral is probably talking about are those fields I couldn't figure out.
