To the people that voted Great: you don't get any problems while zooming? Not even a small slow down?


I zoom in and out all the time (both in tactical, and strategic), but haven't noticed any slow down.

Incorporeal on a level 7 (or even level 6) is an overkill. That's why they got rid of them on Spectrals and Wraiths. Besides, I hate random events in games, so I'd like it better if that ability didn't even exist, or just implemented differently. I hate random events too. It really screws up your s...

Re: The Demo Won't Run

[snip] Note: I am able to run Age of Empires 3 on my comp on 1280x1024 reso on highest detail setting perfectly. i dont think the problem is that my comp cant handle the graphics.

Try changing the environment variable. You can do this by right clicking on "My Computer" icon, and select "properties". When the system properties dialog comes up, select the "advanced" tab and set the TEMP and TMP value in the User variables to the drive/directory with more space. Reboot, and rein...

voted heroes 4, i just love how one megadragon can kill 500+ peasants, yeah i know one azure dragon can do the same but the peasants in heroes 3 are so weak it's rediculous :s if only heores 4 had a proper combat grid... I voted HoMM3. HoMM4 was superior to previous series in adventure maps. But it...

Quick combat in H4 is awful. But is it really possible for a single vampire to beat 100 ice demons? I suppose by waiting/flying away? Is it possible that at one point of the battle the demons gained on the vampires? IIRC, the speed and movement of the vampires in Equilibris has been taken down a no...

Don't know... I think its on par with AoE3. In 1280x1024 at highest quality settings, it doesn't look too bad all. But then again, I only have 19" LCD, so things do look kinda smallish.

So far, my feelings on demo are mixed: Pro: 1) Great graphics 2) Great sound effects 3) Good campaign music 4) Integer number grid system is back (combat)! 5) No more line of sight (combat) Con: 1) Now you have to visit resource providers everyweek 2) No more caravan 3) Limited camera angle/zoom 4) ...

Whatever kept making the game crash yesterday wasn't happening for me today. The only changes I made were turning the resolution down, texture quality down, and turning off anti-aliasing. Sounds like your hardware doesn't support certain 3D features. [snip]I really hope that scripted events like we...

Re: Ubisoft to Drop Starforce

I need a text editor with a spell checker. Any suggestion? :) You could try a program that has a convenient build-in spell check and text editor called Microsoft Word. Word isn't a text editor; it's a word processor with half-ass type setting feature. If you need to spell checker incorporated into ...

Play the demo offcorse... Playing a GOOD demo off a game never stoped me from buying it... That's just it. I've played many good games that had crappy demo. I almost didn't buy heros 3 because the demo was rather poor; I had no idea how things worked. Oddly, many of my favorite games had really poo...

Walk thru?

I remember seeing the H4 campaign walk thru here (some where in feature section), but I don't see it anymore. Googling shows the link, but it's not accessible from the front page. I'm curious, any reason for this?
