With the release of HoMM6, I'll leave it up to the best of you on how to ammend or rewrite this history piece.

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).

members.cox.net/dave.caspermeyer was the old URL. I decided to go with Dropbox for future patch support. Anybody needing MM6 thru MM9 patches can send me a PM and I'll share the Dropbox link.

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...

There would likely be music on somebody's YouTube channel. I've seen music for a number of games posted.

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.

I have no issues on a Windows 7 64 bit machine for MM6. I don't have to run in compatibility mode or run the game as Administrator. I am using Mok's patch, which won't work for the Good Old Games version.

Thanks for the nomination! I do realize that the Heroes games and the spinoffs are the biggest areas I don't have much knowledge about. If anybody wants to add in additional information, it would make the post more likely to get stickied.

Updated my Might and Magic Web page

I was thinking of adding the patches thru Media Store and Share, but I found out that the personal Webspace has 20 megabytes of storage. I went ahead and added the Mok and GreyFace patches along with 3DO's MM9 1.0 to 1.2 patch. I added the TELP unofficial MM9 1.2 to 1.3 patch as well. My Web page is...

Before the Mok's and GreyFace patches, I briefly filled a need with the 1.1 executable file for MM6. While this forum is focused on M&M, I can honestly say that many of the other forums might have a handful of questions each year. I see very limited use or need for my Web page, there are already...

I checked on Zivage, but it seems that he shut down his YouTube channel. I'll definitely finish MM8, but for the other games it may take a long time due to a personal resolution to focus on obtaining a job.

I prefer the Mok patches for MM6 and MM7. If you have any need to go in the Wasp Nest for MM8, you'll need GrayFace's patch. I'd revert back to Mok's for MM8 after doing the Wasp Nest due to bugs in the MM8 GrayFace patch.

I just hope that he goes with not picking any dragons to recruit into his party, or using Cauri since she's easily recruitable well before any of the other characters are close to level 50.
