I did.

There were two betas one newer, for which Panda was helping with images and one older. For some reason the newer beta was abandoned and he continues with the older one. Max indeed responds but it's question of months. So I expect getting my reply (or thereof part of it) till Christmas.

Well this thread has been quite a for a few months so I figured I'd point out that it's now in a seemly fully playable state! I found the convo over at HeroesCommunity:
http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=42713

Saw the link in that thread to their latest 1.50 release from the website here:
https://verokster.blogspot.com/2020/11/ ... n-mod.html

Downloaded it, tested it and it looks great!! I didn't need Equilibris or to mess with any config files or anything, I just extracted the files over the top of a fresh install of Heroes 4 complete and it ran right away. Started in a window so I needed to go into the in-game settings and select 1920x1080 and tick full screen but that was it. When windowed I can see lots of graphical options (similar to the HoMM3 HD patch) to apply various custom renderers and sizes etc.

But yeah.. wow! HoMM4 in 1080P HD.. my life is complete lol!

looking at Blake's last screenshot reminds me of the things I liked least about H4. That insane diagonal/ isometric/ or whatever they call it battlefield layout.

This is an awesome game, and the modders have done an awesome job. Incredibly professional. Better than some toilet paper companies. With stuff like Win10 and 1920x1080, this game has been given a new lease of life for another decade.

And really, we need that.

If you don't optimize for 1920x1080 now, you can't get new players hooked. Then you won't get new maps and campaigns.

Let's see what happens in a year or two? New campaigns from new gamers?
