About Cain's position in Act 5 (Harrogath)

Post by Darion » Mon Jan 14, 2019 2:30 am

So in Single Player games, Cain in Act 5 wanders near Qual-Kehk (the hireling NPC), at a place so far which almost makes him obsolete there.
But on BN games, Cain in Act 5 is relocated to a place between player stash and WP, which makes him quite handy for identifying things again.

So I wonder where his location data is stored, hard coded or edit-able from txt files?

This is a matter of map editing and so I will move your thread to proper place.

Scroll to the very bottom, this will teach you how to do it with Paul Siramy's map editor:

So what you mean is, on BN they use a different map (on which Cain has a different location)?
Isn't this "new" map already in our game file, so I can just toggle it on in SP?

No, it's not. They use different map indeed.

Well thanks mate, good to know that this change is actually did on the server. :o
I suppose there are no means to retrive the exact pathing of the BN version then, if it's not avaliable here.
Guess I'd let it go, feel like not much point in mimicking this myself.
