Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

@Bandobras, are you sure about that? All the sources I can find say that armor provides no damage reduction at all, only a reduction in enemy chance to hit, and the damage I see in the game seems to bear that out. Where are you getting your information? Mine came from here: https://grayface.github.i...

Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

Quick addendum - It occurred to me that the very complicated monster to hit formula works out to being reduceable to rolling a d4 to hit. Interesting.

Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

So, I was really curious about game behavior I've been observing in MM 6, 7, and 8 about enemy hit rate versus armor class. So, I looked up the formula. It's (Monster Level * 2 + 5) divided by (Monster Level * 2 + 10 + Player Armor Class) That alone didn't tell me much. What exactly does, for exampl...

Re: MM6che, MM7che, and MM8che Character Editors Where?

@Avonu, Thank you! You just saved me a whole day's worth of play. I won't have to restart to fix some things that I changed my mind about.

Hello, does anyone know of a safe, currently active link to download the MMche character editors? All the links I can find through searching are dead as of May 26, 2018.

Re: M&M 6-8 grayface patch mp3 music not working

I stopped using Grayface's patch for this very reason. Setting the .ini file according to advice doesn't work. The music will not loop, no matter what I do. The patch also cuts off footstep sounds. All the sound works perfectly on GoG's default version, so I just use that now. There's nothing in the...

MM7 Walls of Mist Question

Hi, I was considering replaying MM7, but thinking about the Walls of Mist light side quest is almost making me not want to. I don't want to feel forced to have a sorcerer in my party for the grandmaster invisibility, and it's too hard to keep trying to beat the timer with only master invisibility. M...

Re: Paul A Romero & Rob King. What exactly is the job distribution between the 2?

Paul A Romero composes the music on the piano. You can give him full credit as the composer of the music. Rob King does everything else, including the electronic orchestrations of Romero's piano scores, mixing, programming tracks into the game design, and adding any sound effects. You can give Rob K...

MM Duel of Champions? Any love here for it?

Hey, I was looking for info on story lore about Masfar, "Father of Titans" from MMDoC, and I can't find any. Usually, I can find any answer imaginable about the MM universe from the experts here. However, I wonder, can anybody tell me whether there's a reference to Masfar in Homm 5, 6, or ...

I bought it and spent over 60 hours replaying Restoration of Erathia. It looked really good on my big screen TV, better than the HD Mod. I knew what it was when I got it, and I got my money's worth out of it. Now that it got me in a HoMM 3 mood, I'm continuing to play Armageddon's Blade and other ex...

MM9 was the game I made the "not speak of it" comment about. It's a pretty standard reaction to it, since it was released in an unfinished state. A few people seem to appreciate it for its Nicolai references, but I never played it long enough to see those. It was just too no-fun as a game ...

Yes, I came to like HoMM IV quite a bit, and I spent a lot of time playing it. I've always defended it when other fans complained about all the changes to gameplay. I just didn't like that they destroyed Enroth in the story arc after all those years I'd invested in playing in it and trying to save i...

Land of the Giants is from MM7. You get there by the teleporter outside of Harmondale, very late in the game. It is populated by mobs of titans.

I found this interesting link through a search for more information about the Contested Lands and Harmondale as related to the bonus campaign in Restoration of Erathia that sets up MM7. The information there implies that the creatures in the Land of the Giants are native to Antagarich and Enroth, an...

@Tress, good points. There are no blacks in MM. However, green and red are the prerequisites for blacks in HoMM 2, and both greens and the golds appear to have sided with the elves in HoMM3, while the reds and blacks appear to have sided with the warlocks. So, it's not like all the dragon colors are...

Thanks, @Pitsu, that sheds some light on the topic. I hadn't noticed that the titan bonus was only against black dragons specifically, and I didn't know about the fan history influencing that particular game mechanic.

Count me as one of the minority who is playing and enjoying HoMM 3 HD.

Thanks for all the answers. The thing is, don't forget what happened with HoMM 3 vis a vis Might and Magic 6 and 7. It was supposed to be directly linked, and the conflux town was originally going to be a technology-based Forge town straight from MM7, until NWC got a backlash from fans who had only ...
