I'm not a fan of piggy orcs so I went with the basic H3 orc as that's closer to what I think an orc should be.

Heroes Complete Edition Details

Are there guarantees that the games will all work with Win XP and/or Win Vista??



If so [even though I don't want to pay for H5 + expansions out of principle] this is something that I'd like to buy.



I'd like Chronicles too but beggars can't be choosers.

You could take it that way, yes.
JJ: Do you know if the H5 1.6 patch is the patch you're referring to or is there a patch 1.61 [or 1.7] in the works?

Should you mean HDTV support with this question... err, didn't you say you don't want to buy ToE? Anyway, so should you mean this, well... :) I may not be buying TotE BUT I would still like to know if HDTV resolutions are supported. I wonder if the H5 core version of this patch would get a similar ...

Here's my widescreen support tip for the day. Check patch 3.1 when it's out. :) Thanks for the update man!! I doubt that I'll get any Hi-Def lovin' with H5 but it's still good news to hear that general wide screen support may be around for H5. This gives me some additional hope for H6!! Edit: Is th...

I seriously doubt that a developer is reading the post because most of them don't even speak English. That aside I would second the request for wide screen support and I'd like to one-up that request by requesting "proper" support for things like 1080i ; 1080p ; 720p ; etc. support. [I.E. ...

I started the series with M&M3 so I never had a problem with mechanical constructs per se. On the other hand the art that was released with the Minotaurs in Jet Packs, Naga Tanks, Something with a Zombie, etc. just seemed a little too over the top for HoMM. It may have been good but the executio...

The numbers for luck & morale shouldn't have been capped BEFORE negative modifiers took effect in the first place. This seems fair & natural to me. Now capping the numbers at +/- 5 once all modifiers have been applied seems like a good idea to me. I don't think that it was "too easy&quo...

A superior player with many of the races will often give the Necros a hard time. Of course if the Necro player is as skilled [or more skilled] than the other human player then you have a problem. The game wasn't made for XXL maps on heroic difficulty with the Necro being guaranteed that he won't be ...

Re: Luck system

Do you like more when luck increases the attack of the units in battle (H1-3&5) or when it decreases the damage dealt to the unit (H4)? I like H4 version more because you are feeling luckiest when you survive, not when you kill one more. But, IMO, it should affect both. I lean towards doing mor...

I'm not sure that's what I would call a controlled study. Esp. considering that it's a forum for H1-H4. If H5 wasn't well behind those titles I'd be astonished :) As to whether H5 is a real heroes game it seems "realish" to me. This doesn't mean the game is as great as H1-H3 but it still ...

On one end of the spectrum you have teams that are in it ONLY for the $ and don't care about anything past profits for the next 5 years or so.
