Allows a player to summon NPC party companions in multiplayer. The stats and inventory of these companions are saved to file periodically so that they can carry over to new games.

This is the ReadMe file for MHIMPsV0_90 (Multiple Heros In Multi-Player)
The MHIMPs IS NOT SUPPORTED IN DS 1.0. In other words, does not work with DS 1.0.
This mod works in DS w beta patch up to DS 1.11.
Thanks to Icemage, Xaa, Wolf, Major Hostility, iRoNiC, Stargazer, Assembler of Redux; they and others have contributed greatly.
12 17 02 Fixed a bug causing game to crash upon summoning a Hero. Also cleaned up code a bit.
How The Mod Currently Works
MHIMPs is a work in progress. Currently, the various hero's are summoned by their corresponding summon spell. After the hero is summoned, he/she starts with what the hero had last time he/she played, or a the basics if this is the first time.
Every 60 seconds, the summoned heros stats and inventory are exported via dsdll so that it may be retrieved upon startup next time.
How To Install The Mod
In the same folder as the DugeonSiege.exe file, remove any previous versions of the StrGthrDyns DSDLL if applicable and place the new StrGthrDynIV.dsdll in the executible folder.
In the resource folder, remove any previous versions of MHIMPs, and place the new MHIMPs.dsres in the DS resources folder.
Place septarian.dsparty in the Dungeon Siegesave folder, usually found in the my documents folder. She holds the summon spells/scrolls.
Start up DS and choose Septarian to play and test away.
The heroes are geered to start at farmhouse level 0.
The biggest issue is that of difficulty scaling (mp scaling). In other words the more heroes are on screen the 'easier' taking down monsters will be. MP scaling only affects actual Multi-Player games on Lan Internet, etc not multiple characters on screen. Therefore it is advisable to change the formulas.gas MP scaling settings to change the difficulty to your liking. In the future, I may include a set of Formulas files for those that dont have time/ability to change the file manually.
Portrait icon is not correct with more than one player playing.
Exported information is stored on server...the hosting computer.
The shield export doesn't work. If you want to keep your sheild between restarts, put it in the main inventory. This is more a DS bug rather than a mod bug.
I haven't tested the packmule.
Septarian starts of with most of the summonable spells/scrolls. Others summon scrolls/spells will be dropped randomly etc..
