Re: Might and Magic VI's 20th anniversary (30 Apr 98-18) (MM7: 8 Jun 99-19)

As far as the Dwarf Maps go, I thought that was deliberate -- "Hey, look! Dwarves are dwarves, hostile or not!" :)

Re: Might and Magic VI and VII's 20th anniversary (30 Apr 98-18 / 2 Jan 99-19)

There's no shame in reusing an engine if the engine works. Baldur's Gate 2 didn't suffer for essentially being the Baldur's Gate engine with tweaks. :)

This, at least, is shown in MM8. Dragons are both party members and quest givers.

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

I'm against that. HoMM is a spinoff series, and the creatures transforming upon upgrade never made sense to me, and as far as non-humans go, it was also never explained (or mentioned) lore-wise. Sure, you can train a pikeman to become a halberdier, and replace his pike with a halberd, but the drago...

A few google searches indicate that the game can have problems if you're trying to display it on HDMI connections.

Another Look At Heroes 4

I've picked up Heroes 4 again and have been replaying the campaigns. To my surprise, I find myself both enjoying it more and having an easier time. After wondering why, I've come to the conclusion that it's too easy to go Combat-heavy in the campaigns without even meaning to. This is especially true...

Re: [H4] What Determines Offered Skills On Level Up?

This table from Heroes Corner is all I ever seen about this matter. It doesn't show the pictures properly (at least for me) but you can see the "weights" of each skill depending on the hero class on the crossing of primary skills. Can't say how reliable the numbers are nor how they were c...

Re: [H4] What Determines Offered Skills On Level Up?

And doing the Bohb campaign of Gathering Storm, upon leveling him up for the first time, my choices were: Herbalism/Healing/Conjuration In other words, all three were the spell point skills from basic skills I already had. I don't think that's a coincidence. And I'll attribute the lack of being offe...

Re: [H4] What Determines Offered Skills On Level Up?

There's more to it than probability; doing the first mission of the Elwin campaign, my level up choices for the first ~15 levels were:

Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

Yes, but MM6 has many, many issues regarding class and skill balance anyway. :)

MM7 & MM8 are indeed what I was referring to, with the GM levels.

Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

I think you're forgetting the big picture. Plate and Chain both reduce damage from physical attacks. That's a pretty valid reason to use them, with the added AC making the wearer a bit more survivable in the long run. I do agree, though, that it would be nice to see games where heavy armor was actua...

Re: Was the Wait button in HoMM III a mistake?

That's a well-presented argument. I've become pretty convinced that most of the game mechanics changes between HoMM II and HoMM III were mistakes. I have a couple pages of notes on this. I know there are many who disagree with this, and I would love to discuss it more over a metaphorical tea on a su...
