The Ssrathi can no longer produce most of their units at a Snake Temple. The Daemons can no longer do the same with an Infernal Temple. Archons and Daemons are no longer producible by the Celestial/Infernal temples. Instead they get premature access to upgrades for the temple of their opposite alignment. At the temple of their same alignment, Races are able to produce units which help reduce their flaws. Neutral Races access differs between the two temples as if they were good/evil.

What Races get at their unit production temple:

  • Knight - Runelord, Mystic
  • Dwarf - Knight Champion, Mercenary (140 gold cost, Build Time: 42 secs)
  • Undead - Troll, Imp
  • Barbarian - Catapult, Druid
  • Minotaur - War Dog, Kobold Sniper
  • Orc - Wyvern, Dark Rider
  • High Elf - Treant, Dancing Sword
  • Wood Elf - Pegasus, Lightning Hawk
  • Dark Elf - Ogre, Salamander
  • Fey - Treant, Manticore
  • Dark Dwarf - Spider Priestess, Goblin Chieftain
  • Daemon - Bone Catapult, Husk
  • Empire - Warlord, Khazrimi Guard
  • Plaguelord - Kobold Sniper, Imp
  • Ssrathi - Griffon, Nightmare
  • Swarm - Wraith, Imp

The Help info should now reveal the strengths, ranges and whether a unit has Poison, Fear, Terror, Disease, Chaos and Awe. Help text also incorporates all changes and any abilities which were previously hidden to other players (such as Peasants costing 0.25 army points or the Assassin's fast attack speed).

1.03.24Edit

Download 1.03.23 to 1.03.24

1.03.24 is GOG's version of 1.03.23. The only difference between the two is that the memory issue has been fixed and so the game can be run properly without XP Compatibility Mode.

See Full Changelog
1.03.24 changes:
  • Fixed problem with invisible units on 3GB+ systems


1.03.23Edit

Download any to 1.03.23

Download 1.03.2 to 1.03.23

1.03.23 is the last in the line of Unofficial Patches created by Jodwin's team. It fixes issues caused by previous unofficial patches (except Vampirism), nerfs Pyromancy when it's raining and fixed a couple of unit spells such as Earthpower.

See Full Changelog
1.03.23 changes:
  • Fixed broken spelldamage code caused by 1.03.22
  • Changed pyromancy reductions under rain as follows:
 20% reduction for Hand of Fire.
 30% reduction for Circle of Fire.
 40% reduction for Pillar of Fire.
 50% reduction for Armageddon.
 (instead of the previous division per 90!)
  • Fixed the "Earthpower bug" (or at least I couldn't reproduce it anymore).
  • Fixed free "Call the dead" for liches (again, at least I couldn't reproduce it anymore).
  • Like 1.03.22, it carries a fixed System.xcr file, in case you screwed up your previous one with the "any version to 1.03.21" patches.

1.03.22Edit

1.03.22 makes Undead and Construction units take less damage from Criticals and Deathblows. It also tweaks the Whispers of Time spell and allows spells, area of effect attacks and projectiles to cause Criticals.

See Full Changelog
1.03.22 changes:
  • Includes all missing 1.03.2 quickfixes.
  • Whispers of time: Duration now is 1 minute regardless of mastery.
  • Mechanical units suffer 1.5x damage from criticals, 2x damage from deathblows, and are immune to (most) critical effects.
  • Spells, multi-target/area damage and projectyles may still get critical effects.
  • Undead units suffer 1.5x damage from criticals, 2x damage from deathblows, but suffer critical effects.


1.03.21Edit

Download any to 1.03.21 1.03.21 hosts a massive amount of changes to Spells, Skills and unit abilities in particular.

See Full Changelog
1.03.21 changes carried over in 1.03.23:

Daemongate  : 90 seconds + 60 sec. /mastery Skellies/Wights/Wasps/Succubi: 2 minutes + 2 min./mastery Imps: 3 minutes+ 2 per mastery Quasits  : 2 min. + 2 min./mastery

Summoning related spells:

  • Summoned succubi gain 20 extra XP per mastery level, and last 2 minutes +1 per mastery.
  • Banish now works at least on level 5 creatures (so a level 1 summoner can banish a 50 XP Daemon)
  • Daemongate summons +1 Daemon each 3 levels of mastery (starting from 4)
  • Summon imps summons +1 imp per mastery, + 20 XP per mastery.
  • Eyes of Oros now last two minutes + 2 per mastery (they used to be 30 seconds, LOL), they now gain XP from Circle Of Power.

Misc changes:

Patch 1.03B Edit

1.03B is a creation designed to bring new, modern features to the last official release of the game. It does not change races, tinker with hero classes or alter units from the latest official patch. The new features it includes are extra portrait slots which can be used to insert custom portraits and an extended tile limit which allows users to play with all tilesets available without having to 'juggle' the files around. Please note you'll still need a working version of 1.03 to run this. It also contains the original game.txt , patchdata.xcr as well was just updated to remove cheat detection that prevented Ironman heroes from saving.

Patch 1.4 from wbc3-de Edit

This patch is a spellcasting and Undead patch. It changes the mana cost of spells, the starting mana of spellcasting units and allows and tweaks the production of the Undead at their buildings.
