Death Knights are hardcore in this game. Very tough.

I've been a fan of heroes since 1998. This is the FIRST time I've ever posted a message in this forum. I felt I just had to respond. As far as the pirates go, they are not worth the air that they breathe. Anyone who is too cheap and is dishonest enough to steal isn't worth a reply, or the space they take up on the Net. That aside, I like every single guy (and girl) on this forum have been waiting ever so long for the new game. Thanks to you guys for undertaking it. As far as what is included or not in the first release, you guys have been upfront about what is and isn't included. I too want certain things, the most of which is a RMG - but if I have to wait, so be it - the choice to buy this game is mine alone and I have chosen to do so. My game is already paid for in full at Electronics Boutique, and I'll be holding it in my hand next Wednesday night. KUDOS to you for undertaking this product, and hurry up on that firsr update. By the way, I'm a 55 year old man that is as anxious to play this game as that 16 year old that is prototypical of the gaming industry.

I wonder one thing though:Some people(read hardcore fanatical fans)managed to finish the game in a week.How can 16 additional maps satisfy them until the editor comes out?This shouldnt have been postponed for an updated :disagree:

The post in question served no good purpose in this thread, pointless spam is best kept in the campfire. And unfortunately, pointless spam has become so prevalent that an individual explanation for each deletion is very impractical.

Don't use this thread to complain how terrible you think it was though, if you feel the need you could always start a thread about moderation-practices in the campfire to vent any misgivings.

Actually I like it more this way. The Death Knights are so damn awesome that they don't need a faction to own the world. They can do it alone!

Well said, altough it's a pity their numbers were reduced. It seems that only Dread Lords survived, the masters, but their subordinates, the Black Knights, have disapeared...

But this man is speaking in the name of an official company, and maybe, he should be more careful of what he said in an official topic.

Forgive me for the poor english, you know, I'm french, so I'm not really fond of other language...;)
You do know that Fabrice is French too, right?

LOL! If only Fabrice's English would be as "bad" in written texts as it is in live speaches. :) At least it would serve to prevent these kind of confussions. :D

[A bit off-topic]
Does anyone have a link for the dungeon and necropolis themes? I will not buy this game for another few months, by when most bugs will be steamrolled.

I am curious on what they are and would like to hear them.

Good question. Does the game have a map file with the mp3 files of the music themes like in H3? Shouldnt we be able to listen to the music any time without playing the game to hear them? I think so because the music is something of the best I have heard in any Homm game :-D

There is a music folder with all the ogg music files in the demo version of HoMMV presumably the retail version is installed the same way. ogg files can be played in Winamp.

If you don't like the HoMMV music you can always convert your old HoMM tracks to ogg format and replace the HoMMV files in the music folder. The music is actually very good though.

The folder is still there, with ogg files. And I agree about the music- it's really fantastic. I'm glad they got Rob King to work with them.

Agree music is very good. I only know the scores from the demo, but I presume the rest is also very good :-D

Death animations are,mostly,really good.I especially like the undeads dying(vampires,ghosts,liches and wights) and the colossi(is this the correct plural?)

But the fighting animations are really bad.The colossi kicking is just...well,dumb.Would it really be so hard to have a few different attack animations for each creature?I mean the game does take up an entire DVD.The technology used is pretty advanced.So a little variety would be a nice addition(instead of those awful glows).
