Re: Heroes 3 Ballista Build

The problem with ballista is that it is a single unit and once craeture stacks grow, the single unit loses its relative strength. Therefore, as Pol said, it can be a major force only in small maps / rush strategy or maps specifically designed for it. Hence from the heroes mentioned in opening post O...

Re: HoMM3 Town Tips?

Against neutrals and AI Inferno is a very efficent town. Devils, especially with force field and high mana can take on pretty much everything. If armageddon is available, a second main hero does efretogeddon and map clearing goes really fast and no lower level units are needed. Demon farming is IMO ...

Re: H3 Mechanics Questions

The amount of data available in thieves guild depends on number of taverns controlled. I guess that 2 tiers count as two ordinary taverns? I do not have Hota running at the moment. Personality says whether the player is human or AI and the latter can have explorer, builder and fighter personalities ...

Re: Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

A general rule is that the higher the difficulty, the faster one needs to strike. Armies are collected as you press forward. In specific maps, like in campaigns a different strategy may be needed though. Unfortunately I do not remember the SoD campaigns that well. However, many people have completed...

Re: Good...Bye... Round Table - Here is the Record Score & INCOGNITO Start

The score is certainly impressive. Whether it is some kind of world record or not remains unknown since many people have achieved great scores, but most of these playthroughs were over 20 years back. Who play MM6 today, probably play some kind of modified version. Also, AFAIK most people do not cons...

Re: MM6 All Team Lvl 1 Ends - Beyond The Border

Abusing turn base and real time in battle is kind of heartless and reloading for loot is quite obviously a cheat strategy. If you want good gear safe and fair, better go to circus. If you want a challenge in the game then a classic test was solo peasant (lvl 0) knight. Dunno if the lvl 0 character s...

Re: Favourite Films of All time

From the abovementioned movies I'd cast my support for the Matrix, Kill Bill, the original Star Wars trilogy. There are others (a.g. Seven samurai and Avatar), which I do like, but would probably not call as favourites. From the darker side The Crow has certainly left an imprint into my mind in diff...

Re: Heroes I: Masquerade Mod v0.1

Amazing progress! I found only windows H1 on my harddrive, and although the mod installed without errors, not all new graphics appear. But I'll try to find a DOS version to test it out.

Re: Heroes I: Masquerade Mod v0.1

From the images one could see that the sorceress has been replaced by Kreegans. Town lineups are somewhat altered and certain graphics got recoloured and a few redrawn. Considering the original style of campaigns, I guess there are no changes in those maps. Downloaded the mod, but have not had time ...

Re: The Absence Thread II

Don't worry Panda, the next nice and round number with no sharp edges is 80 000 for him. For a perfectly round post count he could reset the count to 0, but that would be cheating, so 80 000 it is!

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

For me the main reason not to be a fan of the wait button is that it allows significantly more abusive battletactics. It can make PvP more interesting, but at the same time it greatly reduces the challenge from PvE. A much improved AI and/or changes in battle system are required to "fix" i...

Re: The Call of Liriel (MM678-like game) live on Indiegogo

This is not "similar" to Might and Magic VII, this is literally the same engine, same character portrait, same inventory and items... At least the video shows stuff that looks exactly like M&M7. Maybe it explains: https://www.celestialheavens.com/forum/10/10622?p=369372#p369372
