What I call a steal deal is KB: Dark Side Premium Edition - for less than 2€ from GoG

And there are mods too - play as female Vampire

Not tested, I should add. More exists in russian, linked from 1C forum. If they are still possible to find.

Edit1
Not everything is gold when it glitters. I did some exploration and for those who bought the KB:Dark Side from Steam, they got also KB: Dark Side Cookies which is in fact Premium Edition.

Also the link above is just for upgrade and require to have the base KB: Dark Side from GoG.

My son gave me H3 Complete, H2 Gold and M&M 1 thru 6 for Christmas from GoG. Nice Gift. Deleted H3 Complete due to file according to my Anti Virus. One of the 2 files was a BIN file. One day I played H3, the next day the application file was gone. Forget H3. It's a game for XP only. Any OS afterwards is a waste of time. Take it from an ex WoG Team Member.

Welcome back Steve!

How old he is? What a cool Christmas present! :D

Original H3C is a very old game, so is H1-H4. From the point of today youngsters, there's not a big difference.

H3 - is still most favorized, with H2 and H4 being close. But no one of these gems should go to the trash. As for H3

* It's in no way infected, same for Equilibris or Project Ironfist - you have bad AV which just shouts false positive. When having really simplistic heuristic analysis.

For H3 there are three possible ways, as that code is really old, you need to use it along with something better.

Pure H3:

* use HDmod by baratorch or/and SP Plugin by RoseKavalier

Enhanced H3:

* ERA II. or Horn of the Abyss. Whereas ERA is having implemented WoG scripts as optional, HotA is aimed against better balance, new experience and MP. (Deep game mechanic changes inside.)

H2 in H3:
* There is where is striking Succession Wars. But if you are not their tester, it's just theoretical. Build 0.8 was not made public yet - they are still polisihing. It's out, here.

BTW What antivirus do you have? That's not a bad question either.

Edit1 - SW was released!

Really Nice to be back Pol. Great to see you again.
Got Rid of AVG Free because it reads emulators as Malware or something like it. I did this because it blew out my H2 Gold from Gog as Malware, and my PS1 game emulator as malware. I need a good AV program that will allow my games to play. Any suggestions? I'm a tightwad. It must be free. I heard Avast! may be the ticket, but I don't know much about it. Sorry if this is off topic, I apologize.

Avast should be better indeed but I have no recent personal experience with any of them. So it's, they say so.

But both should be able to grant an exception over files or folders. So, if you decide to install all old games/mods/emulators in one folder, like "C:/games" and give this folder an exception, you should be safe. Alias, keep it the old way ;)

Dunno, I don't use any AV, only FW and that's paid.

I'm not online as much as before, so I just use Windows Defender as my Av. It's okay for me to do that as I don't buy anything online or go to unsecure sites. I can play WoG again!! Yeay!! And I can play my PlayStation 1 emulator again. (NHL 2001 in particular) yeay!

* new key bindings
* ultimate classic from 1994, FPS RPG
* good old times memories :D

Anyway, wonderful remixes can be get here at ttlg.com.

Also, Humble is having Ubisoft games up to 90% off. Some interesting choices at 50%, and the awful ones at 70% ... you know of whom I speak. :D

OxygenFree + Tacoma

OxygenFREE is free at Epic Store till 14th April. OxygenFREE is story driven adventure, well appreaciated, f or example on GameSpot it received 8/10. Main protagonist is teenage girl Alex, who get stuck on her trip on island. ;)

TACOMA is free as well for a limited time on humblebundle. For a change this is sci-fi adventure game, it could a little remind System Shock. In this case you need to download it right to your drive - it won't become part of your Steam Libarry ever. Also well appreciated.

WARCRAFT 1 AND 2 available at GOG!

I was, just yesterday, wondering if I would be able to play W2 again, because it was always so amusing to play.
