Re: MMX: Legacy Info

I hope somebody like GoG just buys out the rights to both M&M and Heroes. It's pretty clear Ubisoft itself is a very shady company and not interested in providing long or short term support(look at HoMM7 as proof).

Re: History of Might & Magic (includes Heroes and spinoffs)

A history of Might & Magic Might & Magic as a series began in 1986, and ended in 2002. During the 16 year span, a number of spinoff products were produced. Multiple re-releases of the series occurred with the more memorable relesase editions called: Limited Edition(MM1 thru MM6), Interplay's...

Re: History of Might & Magic (includes Heroes and spinoffs)

Once I post the updated version of the history article, that is it for me. You won't see me post again in this or any other forum. I am well past "expiration date" and it is far more important for others to make contributions where they can. I know when I'm not needed any more.

Re: History of Might & Magic (includes Heroes and spinoffs)

I'm running into impasses documenting the bugs. I know of some in MM6 and MM8, but again I really want the article to be top notch. With the delays I'm going to push for July 4th update with of course editors checking and confirming things.

Re: History of Might & Magic (includes Heroes and spinoffs)

That's fine with me. The ideal situation would be a professional edit along with my input and what I wrote. With Memorial Day coming up and me having plenty of time due to being out of work at the moment, I'll dedicate that time to a re-edit on my part. In fact, I'm going to cover the bugs in Swords...

If anyone wants to clean up what I submitted, that is fine with me. I don't see an opportunity on my end to perhaps do the initial article a bit better but that may change.

Re: History of Might & Magic (includes Heroes and spinoffs)

Hey folks! I hope you all still remember me. I'm STILL supporting MM6 through MM8 on https://sorcerers.net/Games2/DaveO/. Now I do know that MMX with an expansion was released so I do respect the attempt to revive M&M. My understanding is that Heroes of M&M is doing a lot better in terms of ...

If you're playing more than one character in MM8, I don't think you'll run into money problems. A solo character could have challenges with leveling, inventory, and other issues. I've done a few solo characters though and I recall still having enough money to continue training(up to level 100 or 125).

From what I understood, a Druid was playtested and could solo the game. Given enough luck and good items, many classes could probably also solo the game.

The MM8 box is larger than the MM9 box. Around the time between MM8 and MM9 most places were transitioning to the smaller form boxes for games.

The UPC from MM8 is 5055-01-005(top number), 90561 50551(bottom).
The UPC from MM9 is 5304-01-005(top number), 90561 53041(bottom).

Cox shuts down Personal Webspace

Cox Communications has decided to discontinue providing Personal WebSpace for its customers effective December 6, 2011. Fortunately, I still have a copy of my site but I was wondering if I should bother to rebuild it. I had patches for MM6 thru MM9 on the site along with other data and information.

For the most part, you are correct in regards to mixed classes. However, Dark Elf/Minotaur is very useful for the many chests and in my opinion the Vampire has more to offer in terms of offense versus the Cleric. In MM8, the Cleric promotion is very simple to get and they get fairly useful items(Ecl...

I got a copy of Limited Edition for $20. Good Old Games now also has the same content for half the price(with the exception of the cloth map). I can't advise paying three to five times the cost of the GoG M&M pack just for the map.

If you want a minimal party without going solo, then the best mix is Knight with Cleric/Vampire and Dark Elf.
