Euhm, can't say anything about that. Vector is waiting for Corlagon, and then he will put up a big update:). Still working on it. I'm currently writing a questline (it's probably going to contain 4/5 quests) for a special item, and IIRC, there has not been anything like that in a MM game :)...

Sorry, again, for the lack of dialogue sending- university is taking up a lot of time and I keep forgetting about it. I'll TRY to send Vector it sometime this week.
And there was much rejoicing...

Just to clarify, Corlagon is actually waiting on me for a bit of info... then I'll be waiting on him. lol

I'm quite excited about this game, I'm actually going to study the mm6-mm8 engine :D no really I'm interested in it now, and I hope that the big update will be here soon :beg: And another thing, is there going to be a sneek peak into the game(something like a demo) so that we can get a fresh sniff into the game mechanics, or maybe something like a tech demo like the one MM tribute had

To answer your question. There wil lbe no demoor something like that. Reason: it takes time, and we want to use the time we got to work on the full game. Perhaps when there is a beta playable version, or an early game code, I will try and record it, and maybe adding some comments on it.

ah good thanks for the info so fast then. If you'll be making a motion picture about it (that is what you meant with recording it right?), than I'm more than satisfied. Now off you go and back to work on a simply smashing project :creative:

Hello everyone, I wanted to tell that I joined the design team recently, and looks like I'm in charge of advertising and a few other stuff.
I also wanted to tell, that after a few pm-ing with Vector, I can confirm that as soon as it's possible I (and darknessfood if he wants) will make videos of the fresh new Might and Magic X gameplay!
I can also tell you that the next big update (made by Vector of course) will have really a LOT of new information for you (and for me as a matter of fact) to chow down :)

Now I can't tell you anything more so you better get ready B-)

Greetings and salutations!

First of, I would like to thank everyone who's into this at the very beginning. I was reading this thread last night from the very first page up to here and I'm quite overwhelmed by all the people who want to support this project and the I'm feeling the power you guys have. Just like you cast a Day of the Gods+Hour of Power in GM level with a 100 skill points in Light magic (I know that's ridiculous).

I'm an avid fan of the Might and Magic series since I was 10 and my personal favorites are MM3 and MM6 (now I'm playing it again since I never finished this game). I have defeated MM7&8 with all the time I need to give in order to have all my characters in their supreme state (meaning in 80+levels equipping the finest artifacts/relics/magic items) but still in the very least amount of gameplay time. I really took time enjoying all of it until I stumbled upon mm9..and I don't want to discuss about it. Sorry.

I'm also into the HOMM series 2&3, so that also gives me background of exploring Enroth in a different scale.

With all that mention above I can say I'm an experienced MM player, know quite a history of its world.

Having heard of this and noticing that only a few people tried to work into the Music Department of this promising project, I would therefore volunteer myself into helping you guys composing the music that will fit to 'our world'.

I'm studying at a College of Music here in the Philippines, majoring in Piano. Even if I'm not into the composition field, I already composed several classical/contemporay pieces just for my own interest. I'm also currently studying Band & Orchestration so creating a work for a string quartet or other music group can be work out.

Frankly, Rob King, Paul Romero et al were my inspiration in creating my compositions. I love their work; I love the New Sorpigal Theme: listening to the gentle harpsicord accompanied by strings, the piano that reminds you of the medieval/renaissance times and the energy of the orchestra (even if some are MIDIed they worked out perfectly). Their music really fits into the lands of peasants, flowers and dragons.

If you want to ask how the recording will do, well I have my synthesizer if a MIDI file will do. Or I'll just send you my work (the music sheets) and have it played then record there, or just let me record it with my musician friends in a small room and voila.


So these are just my 2-3 cents, hope I can be of help.


P.S. It's just disappointing to know that blasters (and maybe robots) are still in the game. Why would you end the world of Might and Magic (to some who love blasters) in a Star Wars way? That will now be Might and Magic and the Spaceship Troopers if you ask me. IMO I would have my respect to the ancient fantasy monsters and just deal with them in an ancient battle way.

Create a more powerful mythical creatures, like, maybe, gods of elementals (different form the elemental lords) where they look like humans with a different color, but very powerful and challenging. Or maybe get more godly creatures you see in Greek myths like Athena, Zeus, Hades < Their not just artifacts, they should be monsters, too. Also maybe an interesting creature would be other heroes like us flying and also 'traveling exploring' the world. (I know this sucks really bad sorry)


Don't use 'techno' monsters for goodness sake. Though Crystal monsters are acceptable.


Last thing, if possible, more skins of peasants please, It's really boring if you see guys with 3 only different shirts and faces. Hello, like do you have the same 3 parents?


haha, I just made a little porfolio of myself. Dangm.

Hi theroyalbard! I have to say, I actually didn't hear a thing about music making for the game, heck I don't even know if we have somebody that makes music (Darkness? do we have somebody? :) ), so I think, that you'll have to wait for vector to see the status. And thanks for volunteering theroyalbard :) .

Darknessfood, I may perhaps make audio commentary, but first I'll need a microphone :rolleyes:
Anyway, I'll see if I will make audio commentary, but in all the cases I'll make a extensive showoff possibly divided into chapters.....Just like the proffesionals do it :right: :proud:

P.S How many members are signing up with the forums to post here...just like I did

Yay! It seems that this game will also have decent music too :) Now it really should bring the name Might and Magic back to glory. Can't wait guys!

P.S. The techno monster are unavoidable due to the presence of the ancients. They are a part of the M&M universe, just as much as everything else. At least that's what i believe. When making a game like this, I dont think it's wise to overlook them as they had a HUGE impact on the history of the world...to me it would be fun to acctually visit the world of the ancients, alongside the medival world of course. Although i think thats not possible and it would be a very easy way to ruin the entire series since 3DO never really gave us so much a glimpse of their world...

Thats my 2 cents :D

Well hey... Might and Magic I, II, III, V, VI, VII and VIII all had "Star Wars" endings, so... :D
