Forums  /  Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven  /  NPC / follower glitch

Started from here I guess:
The similiar things can be achieved in 6:



Hover glitch

In VI there is no "0" follower. So to get the hover bug to happen you need 2 NPCs instead of 1 otherwise the game crashes.

Right clicking on the portraits of the followers gives them focus, even when the portrait is not visible it still gets the input.


Duplicating followers

Duplicating followers outdoors

After duplicating the game treats new followers as normal, even if the original ones were of quest type. Dying (as party) makes them to become of quest type, they do not disappear.

For some reason to make the first copy you need to hire twice, the third copy will be added right away. It's almost like adding 2 followers instead of 1, although it shows only 1.

Swapping followers (no way to do it yet)

In VII there is a way to get new followers by dismissing the existing ones, you will be getting -2 to follower id you dismissed last.
Right now dismissing quest followers in VI crashes the game.
That is why the only new follower it is possible to get is a follower made of 2 normal ones (not of quest type):
99 Helen Teal

Why does it give us NPC with the ID 99 is yet unknown. (It is 11 in VII)
