Re: Which campaign first

They changed how it worked completely, and the spells feel more even and more powerful as a result. And yes, the website is not really forthcoming with game mechanics in a lot of places. Metamagic used to work (or was supposed to anyway, but I could never really tell if it did which said to me it wa...

Re: Bug reports

The bug where you enter an underground gate/portal/etc yet don't move to said area, forcing you to move away and reenter it wasting movement points still remains.

Re: Which campaign first

Started with Academy as well. Don't know if it's the reworked metamagic skill or the fact you start with so many skills right out the gate but magic is feeling SO much better than it was in the beta.

Re: The Beta: Impressions

There were a few others I thought questionable, like the week where you couldn't get flanking bonuses, or the one where there were no retaliations. That last one kind of pissed me off... I did enjoy the week of the Frenzied Gnasher, where it was explained this was the week they got extra growth befo...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Yes, unfortunately this is the current situation for me as well. I never even got to try out the Sylvan faction.

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Many optimizations since the last, it runs much better. Is there to be a separate thread for the second beta?

Re: Map Editor

I too surmised it shared similarites with the H4 editor, to my delight. That was bar none my favorite editor of the series.

Finished up the bigger map, playing Haven with a Main hero Tyris (Paragon/Diplomacy/Righteousness), later hiring secondary heroes Melisande (Exploration/Economy), and Minalsi(pure Water magic). Hearing that Might had a huge advantage over Magic, I decided to go what I imagined was a weaker route by ...

Academy's is my favorite, and Haven and Necropolis are passable (which is excellent by relative standards) but I surprisingly do not like Sylvan and Stronghold themes.

The patch improved many of the issues I had, including the resolution ones so that now I can enjoy a much improved (read smoother) experience at 640x480 though I can still hardly read any text. Artifacts show their bonuses properly too when equipped. AI turns even seem shorter.

Okay, finished the game I was playing. Again, went with Academy Theodorus GM Air and Metamagic, even got some Destiny in. 1. AI didn't put up any challenge at all. Couldn't break out of it's area, didn't even pick up the loose resources or artifacts, reached all of level FOUR on it's best hero. Majo...

Supposedly that's a known memory leak that is supposed to correct when you save and load... though that has not usually shown any noticeable improvement in my experience.

Though given options to set the game at lower resolutions, text is indecipherable at less than 1280x720 and there is inexplicable letterboxing. Even so, I've managed to get to midgame on singleplayer skirmish map. My observations: 1.AI on normal is slow. I'm only now starting to see it on the outski...

I'm running it on i3 2.13Ghz laptop with integrated Intel HD graphics, (I know, it's way below specs) and it chugs but it runs which is to this day more than I can say for H6 most days... leaves me hope with further optimizations I can play more smoothly. Still playing with gfx options. In any case ...

I could run H6 once in a blue moon on my laptop... and I don't have a desktop anymore. :( Things do not look good for me playing H7.

MMX DLC Announced

Yay! I haven't finished my first playthrough because I started on Warrior and going maximum exploration, leaving main quests till last. This will extend my playtime even more!
