Anybody here, who owns the GOG version of Heroes 5?

I already have the Gold edition and I'd like to know whether the GOG version adds any new goodies. If so, I'll probably purchase it during this weekend's promo.

The comments are not specific to you. Some of the things however do apply to you, specifically, and I don't think it's my imagination. Have you or have you not stated that "They* killed the Heroes franchise", which is "they ruined the series"? Yes, I said they "killed the f...

hellegennes, I won't comment everything you wrote but I think I'll have to say something about (what I perceive as) the core of your issue: I'm tired of people saying how much they hate Ubisoft for ruining their game, like it was their property or as if they had a contract with an invisible force of...

Does that mean that even the game itself cannot play them? Because, as I said, changing the "video quality" option (yes, in the original RoE edition) doesn't seem to have any effect.

According to the OP, only in RoE the high quality cutscenes can be seen. Either way you can check that by browsing through your disc files with MMArchive. Yes, I've tried RoE with the different settings, but I can't see any difference. It's not the music that is preferable. Like you said, they are ...

- RoE has 2 sets of cutscene movie files: Smack (low quality) and Bink (high quality). In every later version of H3, all such movies except intros and endings are only in Smack format, making the option of "video quality" rather meaningless. Thanks for the excellent edition guide, cuc! It...

Re: So, which Heroes 2 is the best version for newer systems

I found a "Complete" edition of Heroes 2and went about installing that. Immediately I ran into the no-cd-audio problem so I switched my drive letters around, and the CD music worked. Problem is, this version had some Heroes 3 tracks plus the 3rd Sorceress music track and some tracks were ...

Any Heroes Mini players here?

I just noticed Heroes Mini has been closed down. So I'm curious:

When did they close it? What was it like in the end?

Let us play your games the way we want, and we'll be happy to buy them from you. In the best of possible worlds, that would work that way. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Remember when Ubi dropped Starforce in 2006 ? They did it to please the players. Do you think there was an increase in their sales ? ...

Rip-off

This is just one more proof that the gaming industry is doomed. As is the music and movie industry. And the sooner those companies go out of business the better.

Re: More Good Old Games

I've been in touch with GOG about the music issues discussed here (these six missing tracks and audio faults in others), and I'm hopeful that there may possibly be an update to address these issues. Watch this space... So can you give us an update about those issues? I'm really curious what they mi...
