Re: Placebo Effect in Games

Interesting study, but wondering if the conclusions may be flawed. They didn't say if players had ever played the game before (guessing probably not), so the fact that they enjoyed it and found it more immersive the second time they played could simply be that they were over the learning curve and a...

H3 HD Launched

Looks like there's a beta mod already for converting and playing SoD maps plus a way to access the random map generator (if you have H3 Complete). http://steamcommunity.com/app/297000/di ... 472210055/

Hey, I'm neither pink nor sticky! But uh...yeah, well, you know...if I *had* agreed to do ERM for you, you'd have been regretting it. After all these years of forgetting what everything does, I'd probably code it so the map implodes and eats the user's computer (and then there would be screaming and...

Well darn! But could be worse. I don't have a decent job or any kids and I still don't have enough time for games! ;)

Uhh...not much. Just trying to avoid going totally broke in the present economy. :) (I never did play Heroes 6 but I read enough about it to get the general idea.)

How about you?

What is Limbic working on?

I have no idea, but it seems to me that it would be smart to develop the next Heroes game with an absolute focus on the map editor, an easy-to-use yet powerful random map generator, and (if possible), some decent modding capability. Of course, you can't create a random map editor until the other par...

Map Locations

Hi CloudRiderX, Here are some corrections and suggestions for additional information. Corrections: 1. The Naga Bank actually gives Sulfur rather than Gems. Although this appears to be a bug (logically it should give Gems), it was never fixed by any official patches (it may have been fixed in WoG but...

Good work, CloudRiderX. And I'm sure it took a long time to do all the screen shots. I found a few small errors and have a few suggestions: Corrections: 1. In the news entry you wrote "WoG 6.38" -- it should be "WoG 3.58". 2. As far as I can see you missed one dwelling: the Elemental Conflux (the on...

Quicksilver for WoG in Beta

WoG has always been about options and choice--letting the player choose what he or she likes about the game, which options to use and which ones to turn off. New mods simply provide more choice. Not everyone will like these changes for sure, but it's a player's choice to install and use the mod if t...

Re: Placed vs Timed Events / Troop Losses

I'm making a WoG map with a necromancer hero. I want her to lose forces occasionally when she hits the sunlight, but there is no way of knowing exactly when this will happen in gameplay. Is there a way of placing an event with a troop loss script? And of course, the hard part, as I don't do anythin...

Thanks Fnord. :) I have some more questions though. :S Does the "pierce shot" script for the marksman really work? It says it deals half damage to the unit behind the target, but I dealt 600 damage to some dragon flies and then I hit the mighty gorgons behind it, but not a single gorgon was killed....

Re: changing starting troops?

I need help with changing the starting troops for heroes. I've managed change it so the heroes starting troops change on day 1 and any new heroes hired during that first week will also have the changes apply. However, after week 1, the troop changes to newly hired heroes doesn't take effect. Here's...

No, I didn't. I have tried again with my h3 complete cd in the drive and now the movie appears, along with music, but no voices. Okay. Which campaign are you playing? If it's a WoG campaign, I think they don't include voices. If it's one of the original ones (RoE or AB), then probably the voices sh...
