Re: I want you [map testers needed]

Look at the average response time. It's days here. On discord you can have an answer in a minute and actually have a real text chat without any delay.

Re: I want you [map testers needed]

Just one questions, what do you mean with core gameplay? Everything the game has without scripts. The new AI is much smarter with water maps and islands. Try it out, if you haven't already. Sharing the maps here on CH is impractical as I would have to manually transport these back and forth to make...

Re: I want you [map testers needed]

Can't promise you much. But I am building a pool of maps for testing the advanced AI. If you have interesting maps with core gameplay only, i.e. no game altering scripts, we could give it a try. If a map is a good fit, we can get people to test it. We use discord.

Re: Heroes V Legends of the Ancients

Thank you kindly Marzhin. This means a lot to me, and I suppose to anyone who worked on LotA.

Maybe one day we see LotA completed, with this great story arc of yours coming to a close, to be experienced in the best possible form, in a strategy game that requires you to use your wits.

Re: Heroes V Legends of the Ancients

The remaster of LotA book 1 and 2 is done! It's ready for you to play. You find an overview of the improvements here: https://www.quantomas.de/lota/ . It also says a bit about what is ahead, if there is enough support for it, i.e. people who care enough to help it make happen. The remastered books a...

Re: Heroes V Legends of the Ancients

Please help! I am stuck on the mission "Trials of Nikolai". I have activated the first two pillars but the third one requiring me to defeat the fire dragons has me stumped. I have found the fire dragons on their little secluded island thing but the game will not let me pass through the ga...

Re: Talk about the weather

Well, that is something! I wished we had it here as well. But as the climate change continues, here in Hamburg we only get muddled weather. Would like to move northwards!

Re: Heroes V Legends of the Ancients

Book 1 is now available for playing from start to finish with the enhanced AI. It comes with improvements that upgrade the later maps, additiional polishing, fixes for script errors that prevented winning, and the game in general graduates more nicely with the time you need to finish the missions. Y...

Re: Happy New Year 2021

There are of course other AI mods like SCS ( https://www.gibberlings3.net/ ) or the TB mod for Pathfinder: Kingmaker that led to the game be overhauled by the devs themselves, but there is nothing on the scale of what I am attempting. It is simply too much work, and the fundamental innovations reall...

Re: Happy New Year 2021

Have a happy new year! Be safe, I wish you good fortune and health. I don't think 2020 had only negative aspects. In fact, it made many more people aware of what matters in life. Somehow I am optimistic about HoMM in 2021. PS @Pol Who dares to call my AI dreadful? I know it still needs work, but dre...

Re: Heroes V Legends of the Ancients

LotA book 1 mission 5, The Succubus, is now available with some tweaks. Particularly stage 2 has been made more challenging, while the difficulty grades more nicely with the time you need. There were also bug fixes. Details are in the change log of the download of v3138. I also discovered a bug that...

Hello everyone, mctronic withdrew himself from all HoMM 5 projects. I respect the work he did on LotA book 3, and wish him all the best on his future endeavours. A few of you may know that I work on finalizing my AI for H5, and that I had begun the testing of LotA for it. I still admire what Marzhin...

In the end it is up to you what standards you choose for yourself. Note though that the way people perceive you, does not only depend on your choice of interviews, but also how you present yourself.

Re: News Tip - Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars (HoMM like game)

Blake, thanks for posting this here. In principle the game has a ton going for it, for me the most important thing is that it aims to be a grand strategy game like the best of HoMM. But implementation-wise, I just don't believe anymore that you can build a great grand strategy game without an AI tha...

book 4 in progress? In principle we can do it. But there is a lot of work that needs doing first: the AI upgrade, which I am currently working on, then the plan is to upgrade the vanilla campaigns in a way that each map offers strategically interesting gameplay. This work is going to be organized i...
