The sprinkle sound effect and animation seem to be weirdly separated; for example, the sprinkle animation appears anwyays when you go talk/retalk to the NPC, but with no sound (or it is after closing the chat?); eventually, if you click on the chat for the Pearl of Purity, THEN you'll find the sprinkle sound, but now without the sprinkle animation.

I can't reproduce. Can you record it?

Yes, that's feasible. I'll need some days though; technical issues.


There it is. Struggled a bit and couldn't help with the loss of video quality. However it should be good enough for this particular issue.

I couldn't believe this game still has an active following. I just dusted it off on an old windows XP machine to teach my sons! I'd lost the disks, but found a downloadable version through Amazon.

I can't for the life of me get the patch to work though. When I try to run the official updates to go from 1.0 - 1.2, it hangs up and won't run. And I've tried to run the grayface english and the local versions...

Any ideas what' s going wrong for me?

You don't need to bother running the official updates. GrayFace's patch already includes that.

You just need to install MM6 and then install GrayFace's patch on top of that. Do you have Discord, by any chance? It would be an easier form of communication to help troubleshoot your issue.

If not, please tell me what you've done, step-by-step.

I do not have Discord, sorry.

I downloaded the game installer from Amazon games, ran the installer with no trouble. Have been playing the game fine - it shows up as Version 1.0.0.1

I got a copy of the 2.4 patch, and ran it. I get an error message that says "Exception EAssertionFailed in module PatchTxt.exe at 0002A459. File missing" and then it list the full registry of where the game files are loaded ... "\data\icons.lod."

If I try to re-run the patch, but uncheck the box for running large add ons, it will say that it completes the install, but nothing changes.


When I tried to run the official 1.0 to 1.2 patch and update, I get the error message "Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match.

I have also tried to do a full reload of the game files and get the same messages/errors.

I've never heard of that error before. You'll have to wait for GrayFace to respond. Sorry I couldn't be of further help.

Hey, I have a follow-up question. What localization is your Might and Magic 6 game? (e.g. is it English, Russian, etc.)?

I assume english as all the language is in english. But if there are other options, I guess I'd need to know how to find that information.

Install the game somewhere outside Program Files, e.g. c:\Games\. That may be the cause of such problems. I should add a warning for it in the installer.
Also, you've used patch edition for unknown localizations. You should use the one for English version instead.

I did an uninstall, reinstalled to C:\games\ - the full location is C:\Games\Might and Magic VI Limited Edition\. Amazon sells it as part of a package that has all the first 6 games. The exe for MM6 is in that folder, and there are folders (mm1, mm2, mm6, etc) for the other games. There is also an exe for MM6 in the mm6 folder.

I got the English version of the patch downloaded and it ran fine. But the version is still not updated. Might that different folder structure be part of the problem?

I am unable to run the game full screen with the 2.4 patch. I can resize it and make it take up the whole screen, but it's still windowed.

Maybe. Install the patch into the folder that has subfolders Anims, Data, Sounds.

What happens when you press F4?
