Oh my. Ivan's unfortunate armor design.

Pay attention...for it proudly points to his peepee but that dagger-end will make him a woman the first time in battle. <L>

Heheee nice, reminds me of the interviews we did back in the day. :) yeah, lots of good stuff there. I found the comics a few years back.

Where are you seeing that statement and what version of the game? Also, what do you mean by RE-upgrade? When you have an already upgraded unit and try to re-upgrade to the other version (for example : goblin trapper to witch doctor or the other way around) that is the message you get at the Hill-Fo...

H5 maps, a helping hand?

I have a lot of custom maps I've made for H5 and want to upload them here at CH but I cannot take a screenshot of the maps to give to Kalah with the maps. A long time back something captured my screenshot-function and it has not worked since. All I'm looking for is the typical up and down like you s...

Wouldn't it matter where stats were at the time of getting Enlightenment and also the following level-ups? One time I did the same thing and I forgot the starting stats but even accounting for those I think my first comment figures into the equation. Don't know if I'm correct, just a maybe.

@ Panda Tar About AoC, I doubt it will be "in" w/o something like the 7 days and no take a town = you lose feature . If that limit is unchecked by the map maker surely he will have the smarts to give you what you need in that isolated place. @ All The one area I'm not very excited is Z of ...

Re: The Gold Mine

If anything, the adventure map has become more realistic in terms of relative proportions. Agreed and glad of it. Now if someone could wrap their minds around "Scale." <imo> a magical world could be much closer to a realistic look, even with fantasy structures etc. After all there is Zoom...

Not so much, I've just grown more tired of it. Especially when the Hero stands next to something that looks like ants would have to push.

Ok... One "spike" (it's pointy) and one "spire"

And things don't have to be realistic but they shouldn't look silly either; like that very tiny tram in front of immense pillars.

Goodness. Even mines have to have spikes now. <g> And come-now, make that dang gold tram larger; say half the size of that "majestic-pillared entrance."

Well, I'm sure I am biased but I hope H7 is like H5 because with the H5 Editor everything (landscape and all lighting) could be changed, you just had to know how and it's easy to learn. I made many maps with significant differences in what a player encountered going down. I laughed at the small brid...

Re: Heroes VII Announced

iirc in HoF the music themes played correctly but when Tribes was released it also brought some glitch/bug that messed up how the music cycles So I believe until someone fixes the looping-problem in the music system, whatever music files are inserted, only a few will ever play. TotE is a great game ...
