Heroes for windows vista

Postby milel » Nov 6 2007, 15:32

I suspect this will have been asked before, but I can't find it anywhere.
Is HOMM V compatible with windows vista and if not any plans to make it?
I changed laptops and cannot imagine not having my favorite game installed...

Yep I ran it on Vista 64bit, and it worked fine.
But for other reasons I went back to XP on the same machine. I didn't notice any improvement or drop in performance.

Even in XP I got 500MB of RAM cahsed... 8|

Bah, whiners. Vista is best OS atm, unless you have computer older than a year, only then XP takes its place.

Vista all the way - Providing we are speaking about IBM PC-s :P, not Mac-s :P

In Mac case, leopard/tiger/whatever animal is the latest version is the pick to go :)

Dont plan to play Heroes TotE, or many other games on it tho.

I mentioned this in another thread it seems several people running the 32-bit version of Vista (this is the version usually installed at least by Dell) are able to run Heroes 3 - 5 (maybe the earlier ones) and the MMs 6 - 9 without any tinkering with their computer. The compatibility problems occur when running the 64-bit Vista, but H-V should run fine on that version. The fact UBI did not go that extra mile with Tribes and declare it compatible is just another example of their not being in touch with the current market, with their resources they could have taken a couple of days to confirm the campatibility and put it on the box. This is especially true, as I said, since many people are already it running under Vista.

Are you so sure that Vista IS the current market for gamers?? As it was only released earlier this year and a lot of people are hanging on to XP, I reckon that you'd be lucky to find more then 1% with Vista..

Of course it isn't, never said it was. It is the future like it or not, and I don't buy games to play today and toss tomorrow. It is the OS that will dominate (like it or not) in a couple of years. The point was with Heroes V pretty much Vista capable already, UBI could have tested it and fixed what needed to be fixed to claim Vista as a supported platform. Did they HAVE to do this, again of course not, but something that seems to be a small investment would improve marketing albeit a little, but cruising the forum shows a growing number of people with this concern. I myself will be buying a new computer soon and it will run Vista, I would like the company's assurance my investment in their product won't be wasted when I change to this new computer.
