Hi Ed, The most likely reason is that you have downloaded a modded map into your "maps" folder which has these (and maybe other) mods in it. Sometimes mods in fan made maps "cross over" into maps that weren't designed for them. I solve this by creating a new folder in the same tr...

It is logical that sometimes when we see a enemy Hero move away and leave something behind, that it could be that another enemy is getting close to his town and then town-defense overrides all choices and becomes the most important, just like it would be for us. i.e. The Tome would not be worth muc...

Black Dragons aren't immune to magic! I had a whack of enemies, with no friendly units other than my blackies anywhere near them, and set off Chain Lightning expecting it to ignore the dragons as it would have in HoMM3, but it zapped them just fine. Killed a couple, too 8| . This took place in 1.6,...

Well thanks guys for the replies. I suspected as much which is why for the first time I asked here whether to get a HoMM game or not. Such a shame because it does promise so much and looks good. Almost too good to be true, which usually means.... Jeff - There are quite few H6 scenario maps at Maps4H...

Hi Markkur, Thanks for the offer of a 2 player map for hot seat, but no. I have tried it once with my son on a tiny map, and even then it just takes too many years (real time) if we meet for couple of hours a week. My first experience in turn based strategy like this was a game called Laser Squad (m...

Well....Should I?

Hi All, New to H6 forum, (lurked a lot though), but played a LOT of H2 - H5. Question is should I get H6? I probably have more limted and specific requirements from HoMM than most so if I explain them here, I would welcome any opinions on whether to get the H6 Complete hard copy (not steam). 1)I pla...

Hey Markkur, We have clicked here once or twice before, and thanks again for the help with my friend on finding the maps folder on Win7.

Hi Markkur Thanks for the quick response. I will pass this on, though not having Win7 myself I wouldn't know how you install under x86 or how to turn down user account control settings.

Help Reqd with Win7 finding Custom Maps

Hi everyone, I have a good friend who has H5 running well on Win7, except he is unable to locate any maps downloaded and unzipped to his Maps folder. We have gone down the route of opening the editor, create and save a map (which creates the correct MAPS folder) and dragging unzipped custom maps to ...

Hi DayTripper, I can tell you what this is. You have probably downloaded some fan made maps and left them in your "Maps" folder with all the others. "Of course", you say, "what else would you do?" (If you are young enough you'd probably add, "like.....Duuh!")....

cj, I may be wrong, it's been a while, but I think you have to "Instant travel" into the statue to get the moonblade. If there is no open path into the space adjacent to the moonblade then mousing over the statue won't show anything. If you have a savegame near there (and if you have I.T.)...

Additions to the above....

It may be an idea to start a new sticky with Modded maps so those who don't check the docs will know. Perhaps if some more modded maps are listed here?

I believe the answert to this is as follows: The first time you open the map editor it creates a folder called "maps". This is the one to move your downloaded and unpacked maps to. Just creating your own "maps" folder won't work, even if it is in the right place. It has to be cre...
