Re: Chess

I played it occasionally, but I find it a bit bland. I'd rather play MArcomage instead.

Re: Tech Corner

Yea, I'm thinking about either LG or Sony myself. But the summer is still some time away.

Re: Mass Effect

I just started an LP of it! Woo! I'm quite excited about that. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLg9qEDl4K8NhriEjMlWjtqrwfFUUbItXR Meanwhile, I don't know what to think about the upcoming Andromeda. EA has been real terrible so far, and I don't feel like going through games that are DRM'd and n...

Re: Tech Corner

Hm, I'll need to look for a new phone for my mother this summer. Her old one's screen got shattered, and now it's hardly possible to press much of anything on it. She never liked it (HTC Desire 500), though. Apparently it's too easy for her to accidentally press things she didn't intend to press, an...

Re: Contents Wanted

"and that's turned into the new Geocities by now" - I take it you mean that they steal credit for all the content? No, I'm referring to how obtuse the advertising there is (including popups with a misleading looks for how to close them!), how slow it works (you have to wait for all the ad...

Re: Contents Wanted

About the contents, so that people are aware of how it works now: a user can be assigned to an "article writer" group, and then be able to post content on the website using a nice WYSIWYG text editor on the website itself. It's really simple to submit content, what's missing is simply the ...

Re: Your favourite non-original M&M music

I never get tired of it. Ever.

Heck, on my YouTube channel I looped HoMM1 tracks for 30 minutes and it's still too short for me :D

Thanks. I have HoMM2 and HoMM3:SoD to go through, but at this rate I'll still finish MM6 before MaxKnight ;)

Re: Adding new creatures to MM8?

There is only one sprite per creature. The colours are just different palettes.

Re: Adding new creatures to MM8?

It's not in the text files, it's not even in the regular package files. They're some supplementary DirectDraw-specific files that are loaded separately, with a different extension.

Re: Adding new creatures to MM8?

There's a separate file where all the sprites are compiled to for use in hardware accelerated mode. Grayface did manage to fix a bug in it (palette swapping not working), so it's probably possible to edit too, though I wouldn't know how.

Re: H4 window mode 1280x1024

Perhaps the window decoration is still higher than 56 pixels in size? Or maybe that's a bug in Windows. You can run it in windowed mode without issues on Linux through Wine.

Re: H4 window mode 1280x1024

Depends on your monitor's native resolution and your graphics card. If it's 1920x1080, then you can run it in windowed mode if you set the taskbar to auto-hide (that will allow the window to fit the screen). As for fullscreen, whether the image should retain the aspect ratio or not (and whether it s...

Re: Heroes II Soundtrack

So I made the LRC files. They are supposed to work like subtitle files: as long as the .lrc filename matches the filename of your audio file, you should be able to see the lyrics. The problem being that you need a media player or a daemon that actually supports that. In any case, here are the LRC fi...

Re: Heroes II Soundtrack

Well, this is quite a bit of a bump, but hey, this is a real nice thread! I was just looking at the same, and perhaps lyrics files (LRC) for the tracks could be made, so they're synchronised. One thing I noticed is that the lyrics for the PoL Warlock theme are repeated in a peculiar way. In particul...

Re: error when saving or loading MM8

Maybe it's because your DirectX version is too new? Try installing the DX9 files: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... px?id=8109

Re: error when saving or loading MM8

Yea, it might be a different problem that you're encountering, then. Reinstallation by itself may very well solve it.

Re: error when saving or loading MM8

Yea, installing Linux is fairly complicated the first few times, until you get the hang of it, but it's funny that it can run old Windows games better than Windows itself. UAC is a discretionary access control system that Microsoft implemented from Vista and up (7, 8, 8.1, 10 all have it). What DACs...
