This is awesome! The manual is as good, maybe even better, than other HoMM manuals. ( I mean the old good HoMM I - IV manuals.)

Good job guys!

It is possible that an updated version will be done, but that wont happen very soon. Haven't really discussed it.

Although a bit late, I would like to thank all the people who have discussed and given valuable feedback on some game mechanics elements. Particularly Nebs, Sfidanza and Ghasteater.

Yet another comment. The only non-destructive spell with an element is decay. Although the combat UI promises a bonus damage against air aligned creatures, I have never seen it triggered. IMO either decay has an element due to a bug, or there is a bug and the bonus damage is not triggered.

This really is awesome. I think it's an understatement that Nival/Ubisoft lost some of the goodwill with their instruction manual, because it's far too small! Now, thanks to you guys, strategical decisions can be made with much more finesse

Fantastic effort!! Thank you very much :tsup:

I noticed that Hard and Heroic gives half normal income and creature growth for the AI. Is that right? Would have thought this should be double? Or is the AI really gimped on higher difficulty levels??

The process that considers whether an AI stack should move all the way or consider whether your stacks can reach them or not is a bit odd as well. In certain cases I would have thought moving the full length would have been best.

We will publish an updated version, but not for the first week or two. That will give us enough time to spot all the small errors that still remains. I'll try to keep a log file of which pages are changed to reduce the amount of pages that needs to be printed. Under no circumstances will I insert pages in the middle of the manual now - any additional pages will be inserted after page 133.
I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin’ back at me to see me lookin’ back at you.

I have probably offended you in this post. if you take it too harshly, it's your own responsability. I, for my part, never intended to.

If it is not pages long you can post it here. Some misprints have already been discovered and reported by others.

Err. No. Sorry. It should be the same as on normal.

Amazing, this is what a proper manual should look like!

Now i'm waiting impatiently for the official patched manual from Nival, let's see if it can compete with this one...... errr, guess no ;-)
