A friend of mine made a map where heroes visiting an obolisk caused a crash. The solution to that would be to make a small region around each obolisk and make it only accessible by a human player. Oh, there is also a bug with the "tomb of the warrior" that can cause the game to crash. So y...

Downloading those patches may be painful if you have dial up but you can use a download manager to ease the pain. Just start the download when you go to sleep.

I played the AOW series. Yep AOW 2 :Shadow Magic is a stand alone expansion. Lots of different spells and creatures. And there are heroes. :) I like having both overland and combat spells and being able to design my own wizard. My favorite creatureis the leprechaun. I't just so funny watching him da...

In "The Dancing Crusader" I put gates where both main heroes (Elkron and Worm) had to be together to pass. Sometimes they even had to have a third heroe or a specific artifact. I also gave certain perks for keeping the heroes together. You can do this with scripts placed on each heroe you ...

Mine is Program Files --> Ubisoft--> HOMM5-TOE --> Maps If you are trying to play a multiplayer map in single player mode then make sure you have the box checked that says to show multiplayer maps. If you don't have a maps folder you'll need to start up the editor once or create a maps folder. Oh ye...

I don't have a DS so I'll have to pass.

But maybe it will bring more fans to the PC HOMM series.

With units :) Best scenario would be to start developing other skills and then find a memory mentor somewhere. Being able to switch between high damage destructive magic, tactical summoning spells and high level dark magic is a lot better than having mass spells. And again, you have a bonus non-mag...

No, you can't go through it but it is possible for map makers to make use it as more than decorations. I used it in Shadow Dreams and Seize the Throne as more than decoration. You can add functinoality to pretty much anything in the editor. Additionally, you could make a staris have the appearance o...

Part of Arcane Omniscience's charm is that you don't need a magic skill to get it, leaving you 1 extra skill slot for non-magic skills. Prerequisites are pretty good imo, with the exception of tremors. A wizard will want Sorcery anyway and Mentoring is probably the most overpowered ability in the g...

It varies a bit by faction but in general: Dark Light Destruction Summoning The mass spells and disabling/controlling spells give Dark a clear advantage. As in the previous thread summoning could be significantly improved with better perks. It is also insane that might heroes can cast mass spells ju...

I like to switch classes a lot like Caradoc was saying. But you need to make sure you plan your attribues to be able to do that. It gives your party a lot of flexibility. I like fairy ninjas. There's just something about a fairy kicking butt with just her hands and feet. Well, the alchemy spells are...

I would be nice to have a MOM sequel. If you haven't played Age of Wonders 2:Shadow Magic I recommend you try it. I've always considered it to be the successor to MOM. Shadow Magic is a stand alone expansion of AOW2. Aditionally, there is a fan made patch (unoficial version 1.4) that I recommend. ht...

You are going to have to do some scripting to do this. There may be another way to do this but this is the only way I caon think of. 1) First, for the non scripting part. Keep only 4 of the towns chosable as starting locations. Change the 4 others to neutral. 2) Now you need to make a region in fron...
