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!

Kudos, ByteBandit! Very long time! Hope you and your Family are doing well! :wave: I also got my emulator at the ready whenever I feel nostalgic enought to play Final Fantasy Tactics, Star Ocean Second Story, Chrono Cross and whatnot. :D
