Press and hold down the F key (assuming you didn't change the default controls) and then you can rotate the camera with the mouse.

Your best bet is probably to uninstall and reinstall Tribes and then patch it.

There is also a scripting tutorial available for download and ther are various map editor manuals installed when you install the game. Look under Ubisoft in your start menue to a...

Do you mean you get different ammo for different firearms, or different ammo for the same firearms? Like AP, FMJ, and so on, like there is in previous games. Oh, yeah. If you were talking about the armor piercing, ect versions of ammo they didn't include that sadly. I was saying as you level up the...

Look in Pip boy/girl for a description of your items, perks, and skills. As you gain levels you will find better ammo. My sniper uses a number of different firearms to conserve ammo. I wouldn't say you can get better hits with scoped weapons outside of VATS. You do seem to be able to shoot furthur w...

It is nice to see another turn based fantasy strategy game coming out. I like the Galactic Civ games so I'm sure they'll do a good job on the game.

There was no pun intended.

No, I play in first person. I think it would be hard to shoot a moving target (outside of VATS) in third person. I just shifted to third person so you could see my character.

My grumpy old sniper is now level 6. Here he has taken town a super mutant and is preparing to loot him. He doesn't have a sniper rifle yet, he is using a hunter's rifle in the picture. He wears leather armor because heavy armor hinders sneaking. I'm not building him exactly like I had planned to st...

It sounds to me like your video card is overheating since this is happening with all of your games after you play a while. Do you have stuff sitting on top of your computer or your computer sitting close to the wall? The back of your computer needs to be at least 6 inches from the wall so the fan co...

Yeah I played through up to where you escape from the vault tonight so I'm not very far along. The "early years" were funny. Hopefully I'll have more time this weekend.

Re: Issues with heroes 5

I'm not sure what ou mean by the screen shutting off. It just goes blank? Is your hard drive light blinking? Does it happen with any other game or just HOMM5? Did you install something else, like another game before it started happening? Have you done a virus scan (I hope your anti virus definitions...

Yeah, 6 unique factions is a good number for the initial release. I'm hoping for more neutral creatures next time around though.

Yes. The fallout games are "free roaming" games that let you explore and go wherever you want to. Of course you can get yourself way in over your head too. :) There are lots of quests. If you don't spoil the game with walkthroughs you'll have lots of game play in each game. Plus with all t...

I don't think those are from a game. Those look like they are illustrations of a DnD story. You remember the series with Tasselhoff Burfoot, Raistlain, Caramon, Flint, and Caitlan? There were 3 trilogies. Margaret Weis was the author. I think it was Time of the Twins, War of the Twins, and Test of t...

The last I heard HOMM5 + expansions made money. So that is a success.

While there are balance issues I would like addressed the game overall is quite good.

1) Agreed. When Raise Dead was given to the necormancers it should have been removed frm the mage guild and replaced with something else. 2) Well, phantom forces is probably the best summoning spell once you get a good army. Summon Elemntals has had little use since the stacking was taken away. Summ...

I haven't downloaded the demo but I saw it is 1.7Gig. I might download it later but I read the character you play in the demo can't be transfered to the actual game. I also read that there is a shared stash in Sacred2 so you can transfer items to your other single player characters which ais a welco...
