Now it's time to see our hero, but first let's change his commandset. The commandset is what shows in the palantir in the wheel of powers when you choose your hero, in case you didn't know. As it is, our hero has the exact same one as Boromir, we want to change that. First open data>ini>commandset.ini and look for Boromir's commandset. You'll see that is like this:

              
Code

CommandSet BoromirCommandSet
    1    = Command_ToggleStance
    2     = Command_SpecialAbilityHornOfGondor
    3     = Command_SpecialAbilityBoromirForGondor
    4     = Command_SpecialAbilityCaptainOfGondorBoromir    
    12     = Command_CaptureBuilding
    13     = Command_AttackMove
    14     = Command_Stop
    16     = Command_SetStanceBattle
    17     = Command_SetStanceAggressive
    18     = Command_SetStanceHoldGround
End


Copy it and paste it somewhere in the file (I usually like to paste it at the bottom just above #include... but that's just personal taste) and delete all the abilities of Boromir, also change its name, basically like this:

              
Code

CommandSet AngmarMalvackCommandSet
    1    = Command_ToggleStance
;    2     =
;    3     =
;    4     =
;    5     =
;    6     =
    12     = Command_CaptureBuilding
    13     = Command_AttackMove
    14     = Command_Stop
    16     = Command_SetStanceBattle
    17     = Command_SetStanceAggressive
    18     = Command_SetStanceHoldGround
End


Remember that a hero can only have up to 5 abilities (or can he? I'll talk more about that later). I commented the unused powers because otherwise it would crash for not having anything specified.

Now copy the name of your new commandset and paste it in youhero.ini (make sure that in yourhero.ini the boromircommandset is deleted). Now you should have something like this in yourhero.ini

              
Code

    CommandSet = AngmarMalvackCommandSet


While you're at it, change his/her cost and buildtime, just for testing porpouses.

              
Code

    BuildCost = 1 ;BOROMIR_BUILDCOST                
    BuildTime = 1 ;BOROMIR_BUILDTIME    


And now, the time has come, we will put our powerless, Boromir-sound-like hero in the game. First copy his OBJECT name, in this case is AngmarMalvack, and now open data>ini>playertemplate.ini

Once is open, seek for the faction you want your hero to be recruited, I will choose Angmar, and look for the RecruitableHeroesMP part and paste the name of your hero. Now it should look like this:

              
Code

    BuildableHeroesMP            = CreateAHero AngmarMalvack AngmarHwaldar AngmarKarsh AngmarMorgramir AngmarRogash AngmarWitchking


And that's it, open your mod, cross your fingers (I do it every time I open mine), select Angmar (or the faction you chose) and test if your hero appears as you expected. May the odds be ever in your favor.
