    Subject: Super Hero Hack. (Need Help)
     I wanted to try out this "Super Hero Hack" but when I went to do it I couldn't because I couldn't find my Hero's name in it.
    Has anybody else done this and actually been successful? 
    My Civilization is Russia and I custom-named my Hero.  
     [Here is the process that the site says to do.]
    Not really a big fan of cheating or hacking, but I wanted to check this out because of a youtube video that made it look pretty cool.
     
    This is similar to the "Edit resources" trick, except only your side benefits 
    not the CPU as well. This trick will enable your hero character to move very 
    fast on the map; have lots of hit points; destroy any enemy unit/building in 
    one click; etc. Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a 
    backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the 
    "proto.xml" file in the "data" directory in the game folder. Search for your 
    hero's first name plus "SPC". For example, for "Amelia", it is "SPCAmelia". 
    
    You should find something that looks like the following: 
    [/Unit] 
    [Unit id ='458' name ='SPCAmelia'] 
    The XML tags of interests are as follows: 
    [MaxVelocity]5.0000[/MaxVelocity] 
    [MaxRunVelocity]7.0000[/MaxRunVelocity] 
    [TurnRate]18.0000[/TurnRate] 
    [InitialHitpoints]850.0000[/InitialHitpoints]

    [ROF]3.000000[/ROF] 
    [/ProtoAction] 
    [ProtoAction]

    [Damage]750.000000[/Damage] 
    [DamageType]Ranged[/DamageType] 
    [MaxRange]16.000000[/MaxRange] 
    [ROF]3.000000[/ROF] 
    [DamageArea]1.000000[/DamageArea] 
    [DamageFlags]GAIAEnemy[/DamageFlags] 
    [/ProtoAction] 
    [ProtoAction] 
    [Name]HandAttack[/Name] 
    [Damage]14.000000[/Damage] 
    [DamageType]Hand[/DamageType] 
    [ROF]1.500000[/ROF] 
    [/ProtoAction] 
    [ProtoAction]

    [MaxRange]16.000000[/MaxRange] 
    [ROF]3.000000[/ROF] 
    [/ProtoAction] 
    
    Change the above values to create a super hero, as follows. 
    
    [MaxVelocity]50.0000[/MaxVelocity] 
    [MaxRunVelocity]70.0000[/MaxRunVelocity]

    Your hero will probably just be called an explorer, not his custom name. I'd go find the name that explorers are specifically found under, but I'm too lazy

    That's the wrong stats to be editing to change for skirmish, those instructions will boost stats for a campaign game with the edited hero. To change it for skirmish, you can edit the stats for "Explorer" to those given, though that will boost them for the CPU as well. I don't know of a way to boost stats for just yourself unless you have at least one expansion, then you can edit either the explorer, or the unique unit of the same type for any of the other civs (don't know the exact names) then make sure the CPU doesn't have the same unit.
