Are you a bad enough dude to
Might and Magic III: Isles of Terra is the third entry in the Might and Magic series.
"It's a Secret"
Map 105 is not a map that most players would see during the course of their journey through Terra. This is because it seems to be a developer map, or possibly a "joke" map, full of strange and interesting things.
The map is arranged in a haphazard way, forming a maze ripe with guillotine blades, Bubble Men, Carnage Hands, and a few Phase Skulls. There are also two levers which don't seem to do anything, several doors and portcullises, breakable walls, and several endless piles of treasure which randomly give your party some of the best equipment in the game. The most interesting area, however, is the room to the north which houses several golden thrones… one for each member of the game's development team at New World Computing, who each have words of encouragement, interest, or something completely random to say. Also of note: You cannot use Lloyd's Beacon (a waypoint warp spell), Time Distortion (a warp-to-exit spell), or save the game, here.
To access the map, load a save file in a hex editor and change the following values:
$2B2E - 01 01 ; Player coordinates value Changes the player's X/Y coordinate to X01 Y01 (near the Mirror) SUGGESTED, but not always necessary $2B30 - 69 ; Maze ID value Places the player on map 105 ($69)
To leave the map, either use the Magic Mirror to teleport to another location or open the menu and ask Mr. Wizard for help (at the cost of all of the party's gems).
Z Item 23
The item 97 is called "Z Item 23" which is not used. Probably a test item.
