Patch 1.6 is Out

Postby Angelspit » Oct 18 2007, 16:40

Ubisoft has just released patch 1.6 for Heroes of Might and Magic V. In addition to a series of fixes, the update includes interesting features, some of which I think already appear in the Tribes of the East expansion:
<li>Kingdom Overview
<li>Extended Number of Turns on Cursor
<li>Wait Button
<li>Sleep Mode for Heroes
<li>Threat Indicator for Enemy Stacks
<li>Autocombat Without Magic
You can download the file from the <a href="http://patches.ubi.com/heroes_might_magic_5/">Ubisoft FTP</a>, or look for a list of mirrors on the <a href="http://mightandmagic.uk.ubi.com/">official site</a>. According to <a href="http://www.celestialheavens.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=189847#189847">Jolly Joker</a> at the Round Table, patch 3.1 (for the Tribes expansion) will be released soon as well, but you will have to wait a little more for Hammers of Fate's patch 2.2: <i>"[I] can't imagine 2.2 being released earlier than at least a month after 1.6 and 3.1."</i>

I didnt find this : "Ability to set time for creature turn in combat
(Allows customizing creatures' turn time in dynamic battles both in single and multiplayers modes)."

I see this whole Nival and Ubisoft thing like, when a new boss arives, and he wants to show, that he's the leader. I mean it took them more then a year to make a wait and a sleep button. For god sake, what took them so long. I was a commonly liked and loved thing, in previous games. And one could say, that's only a merchendaising trick, but, I honestly doubt that.
I rather think, that beyond hurry it's just an 'we'll show them' thing, they think so smart.

So, is this installed directly on top of the game, or are the previous patches needed...?

You can just run the patch updater. The notes say to "Make sure you have already installed patch 1.5 before trying to install Patch 1.6."

So it's been what... about a year and a half now, give or take, since the game came out, and they JUST NOW added a Wait button?!

I'm sorry, but...that's pathetic. :\

@Falsted: It's a classic button. :)

Kind of like the End Turn button in 99% of TBS games. It doesn't feel the same to have to hit Enter or the Space Bar to end a turn either. :)


Anyway...they're patching EACH individual version of the game separately?
Isn't that a bit...inefficient, to say the least? :S

This is just a clear example how fare quality standards are between a company like Nival, and Blizzard.

Among Blizzards titles it's expected that that an expantion upgrades the original game and for future updates, you only need 1 update.

What Nival has going here with three seperate updates among 3 games, that does not automaticly update eachother, is clearly a lack of either skills og low quality standards which either way is unexceptable.

i just don't see why they have to make this so inefficiently. 1.6 should apply all the changes 1.5, 1.41, 1.4 and others applied.

also, they could just make one intelligent patch that patches everything the user has installed, instead of having him/her download 3 different patches...

Did anyone have problem with Kingdom Overview, Sleep or Mana Indicator? I (and not only I) can't enable this functions in my patch (1.6 PL CE).
Is this situation appear only with some version of patch or it is something else? Or maybe readme is wrong?

'Pathetic' - that's the word I was searching for (Thanks KI). Even though an intelligen upgrade would be too big(about 500MB) they could make 3 normal patches not 3 for each. (like agni77 wrote)

I am seriously hoping this is not the last patch for HoMM V. I am displeased by many of the changes to basic units that took place in ToE...
