What exactly is this mod and what happened to the WPU project?

Shadows Over Ashan (TSoA) is a so-called "global modification", meaning that it works like any official DLC. It will add new things to the original game, specifically a new nation/town and units which you can play in both single player skirmish maps and multiplayer maps on one PC (hot seat).
The original Wryn Pendragon: Umbramancer (WPU) project was canceled, but its strong foundations gave rise to this DLC. Except for campaigns and a script-based systems, everything has been preserved.

How do I install TSoA mod and which game version do I need?

First, download the entire package (1,6 GB) and unzip it to your disk. Then move/copy the files listed below to the specific folders - if those folders does not exist, create them. That's all and you can start playing!

  • WPU.upk to: ...\Documents\My Games\Might & Magic Heroes VII\MMH7Game\CookedPC
  • WPU_2.upk to: ...\Documents\My Games\Might & Magic Heroes VII\MMH7Game\CookedPC
  • H7Config.upk to: ...\Documents\My Games\Might & Magic Heroes VII\MMH7Game\CookedPC\Data
  • WPU.INT to: ...\Documents\My Games\Might & Magic Heroes VII\MMH7Game\Localization\Content\INT

This modification works for the base game Heroes VII with the latest patch installed (Steam/Ubisoft Connect), or the base game with expansion pack Heroes VII: Trial by Fire.

Version 1.2: + added English translation for Rift Cloak buff description (from Rift Gate town building).
Version 1.1: + fixed ranged units (correctly placed starting projectile positions).


Important notice

When choosing options of the skirmish map, be sure you always select Xel town from the drop-down menu AND you also choose a Xel hero by clicking on the portrait. Otherwise your starting town will be reverted back to the one of the original towns.
You can watch our quick guide here: TSoA quick guide (skirmish setup)

Known issues

Unfortunately, not everything can be edited in the H7 editor, so these problems may occur while playing:

  • There is no Xel town music.
  • There is no Xel town siege map (Dungeon one is used instead).
  • You cannot choose Xel town for scenario maps.
  • We do not recommend playing in windowed mode (game may crash).
