Patch 1.5 and Pirates Launched

Postby Kalah » Jul 12 2012, 22:04

<img src="/images/news/newshorn.jpg" align=left vspace=5 hspace=5>Patch 1.5 was released today, as announced on <a href="http://might-and-magic.ubi.com/heroes-6/en-GB/news/details.aspx?c=tcm:21-57177&ct=tcm:6-231-32">the official site</a>. To install it, you need to connect to the game and run the updater. Alternatively, you can download single .EXE files by using the same URL as the other patches, but change the number to 1.5:

<ul><li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_1.5_cze_hun.exe">Czech/Hungarian</a>
<li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_1.5_efigs.exe">Western Europe</a>
<li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_digital_1.5_efigs.exe">Same - digital</a>
<li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_1.5_kor.exe">Korean</a>
<li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_1.5_pol.exe">Polish</a>
<li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_1.5_rus.exe">Russian</a>
<li><a href="http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/HOMM6/hmm6_digital_1.5_rus.exe">Same - digital</a></ul>

Along with online/offline savegame compatibility (which <a href="http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/295256-BUGLIST-Please-report-bugs-here?p=8464829&viewfull=1#post8464829">doesn't seem to work properly</a>), town screens (which are beautiful) and the DLC <i>Pirates of the Savage Sea</i> if you bought it (you need version 1.5 for it to work), the patch contains a whole bunch of bugfixes.

The full list of contents can be found <a href="http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/690497-Patch-1-5-and-the-Adventure-Pack">here</a>.

Poland gets their own patch?? :|

Such a small country and language and they get their own friggin patch?! :??

They should either learn English or Russian. Join the east or the west or you're *****! like it was in the old days :tongue:

The Nordic countries should get their own version then as well.

A bit offtopic i guess but it just struck out to me.

No I haven't tested it, I'm waiting for a Gold version when it's kinda done.
I read that the balance is still quite weak.

ps. The language filter is f**ed up. it takes sixletter words and puts four asterisks instead.

Profanities removed by Kalah. Behave.

After Installing Patch 1.5:-
The game only works for me if I restart any of the Campaigns from the very beginning. If I try to load a Saved Game I get the "Thank you for Playing Might and Magic VI" screen.

I guess this is one more reason to wait for the expansions; or will there be compatibility issues like those between H-V basic and HOF. ;|

Haven't played since before 1.4, but lots of things have been fixed since then. Had to start a map over, but not a campaign thank god, because I wouldn't have started Haven over from the beginning. Bought the Pirates DLC, haven't started it yet. Wonder if there are actual recruitable Thunderbirds. Always liked those units.

@Campaigner:

You are racist, and I hope one day you will have to play Heroes yourself in an language you do not know.

It's not that. I'd be happy to see a Lithuanian localisation, for instance, even though I know English quite well. It's just that it's nice to have something in your native language for a change.

That said, different patches for different languages is stupid. That's not how you're supposed to do things. Look at the Unreal series for a good example - it includes all the supported languages in a single place, and you can switch between them on the fly; it also allows you to edit every localised line in the game or create new languages (you could even create an Elmer Fudd language or so).

Not to offend anyone, but English works better than most languages which have complicated grammatical rules. At least for games such as Heroes, which most of its text is in the form of labels.

Someone really messed up. I have been ignoring all comments about gameplay because really i haven't cared that maybe i don't get a 1.5 bonus when the moon is in pisces. Game has been quite fun. But this last patch destroyed all cred. Before this patch the "cloud" was messing up my saved games, now they are gone and i basically either start back from the beginning or wait for UBI to patch, and we know how that has been working out for them. Game - awesome. UBIsoft, complete and total failure for their ability to test, test and re-test. Pathetic.
**after posting this i read more on the official forums. I guess i should thank UBI. because if my saved games were there, they were under 1.4. Turns out that they would not be compatable with 1.5 that just go released. Wow. And better, those that start new games with 1.5, when the release their hotfix, it won't work with those saved games. So they recommend players stop playing till they release the hotfix. I kid you not.

If you're talking about the issue with save game synchronization, lots of people had the same problem and you can fix it by simply turning it off in the UPlay options. Once you do, all of your save games will appear as if nothing ever happened.

@hellegennes
You're right, english doesn't have complex grammatical rules, because it doesn't have any grammatical rules to begin with lol.

EDIT: Patch 1.5.1 just went live. There shouldn't be an issue with save game compatibility now.

What is this I don't even.....

Different languages = racism? I always thought that racism is about you know, different races. Or the accusation of racism is normal internet insult used when you don't agree with somebody?

Ah, Campaigner..


Poland is a big and great country, one of the bigger ones in the Europe. UK could envy. And you can get here games extremely cheaply - there are many reasons why they have their own language mutation.

As for the foul words filter it's working good. Exactly as intended. :P

Well, the plural of fish, people, music, concrete, only refer to types of, not actual plural. So, fishes refers to species of fish, musics refers to music genres, concretes refer to types of concrete, etc.

However, I don't know of any such plural form of sheep or moose.
