Check out Zoltan's special ability. There is a chance every time you cast a spell that Zoltan will prevent you from casting that spell again during that battle. Okay - these answers explain everything. Thanks so much! It's a loser map. Unfortunately, there aren't a whole lot of the extra-large (my ...

#Why can't I learn/cast...

Okay, so my hero has expert level in 4 different magic types, and I can't learn Town Gate from my mage guild?? Also, with two different heroes I've been unable to cast particular spells in battle. Both times, I had cast the spell at least once (Resurrection/Raise Dead) and then, with plenty of spell...

Sylvian camp map 1: bug?

This is Freelance, Bethel's son. I've been trying to get through Findan's first map, the one with the garissons. The first time I played through, the demons showed up. since I spent my army on filling up the garissons, I had none to fight her when she broke through. so I changed tactics and been hol...

Of all the things I miss, I miss the caravan the most. The best thing to come out of H4, and they left it out of H5. Now I have to hire a hero to do nothing but run around collecting creatures on a weekly basis. The least they could have been done was to have creatures accumulate until you could get...

Also, if you can get him to attack you in a town, take out his catapult and then start working on anything that can shoot/fly.

I have Resurrection - couldn' t have won without it, I think.

Does the game need to be registered before applying the patch? It won't let me register the game without logging in, and when I put in my e-mail address and birthdate, it says it doesn't match what they have in my system. Don't have my old password and it doesn't recognize the one I normally use. Do...

I'm having the same problem. I have 9.0c from Oblivion and can't load it from the H5 DVD.

I just find it sad that I *just* bought this laptop, and it is supposed to be made for decent gaming, yet it cannot support this game. I left the support team a message, but I am most likely going to return the game. It is not worth the frustration, and the limited support in video cards for the ga...

Haven't tried calling them, as in my experience that turns into about 3 hours of wasted time. Plus, I don't have a number to reach them at. I did try leaving them an e-mail: "I've tried sending the support staff an email, but although they make note that my e-mail is on record they don't recognize m...

So what do I do now? Obviously, I've installed 9.0c (see DX Diag above) and have had no problem running Oblivion. And even if H5 didn't recognize it as already being on the drive, why wouldn't it load from the DVD?

I'm so confused...

What's SP2? But I'm pretty sure I don't have it. Service Pack 2 for Windows XP. Right click on My Computer/Proprieties. It should tell you what SP you have. No, it just gives me options for my Task Bar and Start Menu. However, my husband keeps things pretty up-to-date, and I've only had this comput...

Is the 'Week of...' decided at the turn of the day, or earlier? (In H3, if you reloaded you might get a new selection, in WoG it was decided by day 2 of the week.) If the former, this would allow for reloading if you were getting a terrible choice.

And I'm still trying to find out why the DirectDX 9.0c won't load off the H5 disk. For a game I'm not all that impressed by from playing the demo, I'm going through an awful lot of expense and irritation to get it to be playable.

Do you have SP2 instaled? I had to format to get DX 9.0c on the PC.



What's SP2? But I'm pretty sure I don't have it.
