This test is pretty badly tought off. What would any text editor have to do with Starforce. AFAIK Starforce doesn't make all programs execute with escalated privileges. Start the game with a limited account and try to save into a restricted folder may be a more indicative test, which is still pretty...

There is no need to unpack the data.pak, just copy the MainMenu2 folder into the data folder. The game will load the moded files and everything will work fine. BTW the hotseat works great, I've had no crashes or problems whatsoever. On my comp the peak memory usage (whole system, not just H5) after ...

Summon Creatures is in the beta, but is not functional (i.e. nothing happens on cast)

Re: Heroes V Impressions: Post yours here

My imps and familiars were relentlessly slaughtered, but I exepct L1s to die out and lose usefulness. H3's the only game I've seen where L1s could potentially be a factor by the time you got to your upper dwellings. On a solo (hot-seat) game where I levelled my hero to 20+, I got the skills that im...

Unbalance is something that is solved exactly by betas. You shouldn't worry too much about it as long as the game is functional. The problem I have and which the original question was aimed at is - How do we test balance when the game is not functional... Anyway, I got the unofficial hot-seat mod an...

I won't quote cause this is getting long enough, so just quick comments: 1) They were beta testing (only) multiplayer for months in the closed beta. Am I wrong for having expected mutiplayer to be far more polished? 2) I never asked why ghost mode is not in. I'm asking why the turn based classical m...

Re: What's the point of this beta?

Call me crazy, but I don't think the point of any test of an unfinished product is intended to show off a finalized product. That's what a demo is for. This is a beta. I never said I was expecting a finalized or finished product. I'm just saying I was expecting the portion they are beta testing (i....

What's the point of this beta?

Has anyone even suceeded in finishing a game? All my games and everyone elses I have talked to disconnected rather early into the game. Whats the point of having a open multiplayer only beta when nothing can be tested (and it is already painfull enough to test it in multiplayer). It's quite weird th...

Well even before seeing any comments about this, my first reaction with the homm5 intro screen last night was: "WTH, Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War????"... weird coincidence, don't you think P.S. Not that there is anything bad in beeing inspired by warhammer, it is one of the reachest universes creat...

Re: Heroes V Impressions: Post yours here

The town layout wasn't as good as I would have hoped for. It seems that I have to scroll amongst the many structures at my disposal instead of having the giant screen of building that was in all the others. ... Similiar experience here to yours, had trouble getting a game started, then got disconne...
