Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine. [upd. 10.06.2019]

I do hope people here are familiar with Morroblivion and its chequered history. Don't want Ubisoft to do the same to this project that Bethesda did with them.

Re: Help me with a Might & Magic RPG!

If you're dealing with Enroth/Colony, then M&M 6/7/8 are the ones you'd need to take a look at. The 6-7-8 merge mod for 8 is a good way to play them, too.

Re: New Sorpigal Unreal Engine 4

Even if the original project is dead, its source code is available (as it has been declared "public domain" by the original author). Which means a new project can be forked from this one.

Re: New Sorpigal Unreal Engine 4

Yeah, over-ambition kills a lot of projects, fan or otherwise. But keeping it small, like this, does pay off.

Re: New Sorpigal Unreal Engine 4

Dunno if the guys doing the MM6/7/8 engine recreation are still working on it, but you may want to try talking to them? https://github.com/pjasicek/OpenMM8 - not been touched since August though.

Re: Doom WAD based on M&M VII

Heh, someone was doing a remake of another RPG classic (Fallout) using the (GZ)Doom engine, and it turned into "Shadows of the Apocalypse". https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=50205

Nice to see projects out there paying tribute to games like these.

Elemental Guardians - iOS and Android?

Received an email this morning for a mobile M&M "strategy RPG" for Android and iOS called Elemental Guardians. Not heard of this one before - anyone else know anything?

Re: Might and Magic 6, 7, 8 merge based on mm8 engine.

The only way you are going to get a reliably working save game editor for the combined 6-7-8 games is to write one. And there isn't much point at the moment because things are still in flux.

Re: Might and Magic E3?

M&M has clearly been sliding down the corporate importance pole for a while now, but with the failures of VII and Showdown, I would be astonished if they want to revive (or otherwise use) the franchise at this point.

At this point, I'd say M&M is (all but) dead.

Re: Might and Magic in other games?

http://www.moddb.com/mods/chronicles-of-might-and-magic - found this for Mount and Blade. Interesting. I think a M&B-styled M&M game could have the potential to be really good indeed.

Re: Shutdown of Might & Magic: Showdown

That little disclaimer on Crag Hack's entry does at least indicate the possibility that some of the whole lack of "lore" thing was intentional.

Re: Heroes Returns to China

The original Might and Magic Heroes Online in China was also in the NWC setting. Hmmm.

Also, as a tangent: could Tencent become a white-knight style bidder for Ubisoft versus Vivendi? I note Tencent owns about half of Epic Games.
