Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

OK, just to update my progress with this game... (sharing my experiences which are different from Maltz's) Human/ Ivan campaign, map 2. just beat Svea, that level 43 Stormcaller with that mighty chain lightning. I couldn't help fighting her as she rushed me. Maltz recommends in his walkthrough that ...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Wimfrits, your skill with the HOMM game is well known. If a very average player like me can find Heroes 7 boring on heroic, I don't think you're going to get any challenge out of this game unless you play it a certain way. I suggested that way of playing this game several years ago, and I still endo...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Oh well, I restarted this damn map (Human campaign after Dwarven campaign, map 1) twice. Once I explored the NE, the other time the SE. It turns out that Bart is to be found in a random place in the mid-East. There's no particular reason why anybody would go to that place, but he's standing there an...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Okayyyyy Here I am, finally getting to play the last map of the Dwarven campaign. This is surprisingly hard. It's not as if the AI offers any real challenge on heroic - but that the timing is quite tight. You can't wander around and explore. I failed twice simply because of the timer. The instructio...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Panda Tar, Ubisoft's Products are not exactly addictive. That said, I just happily did some checking up other games. Randomly looking at 3 of the top rated games in 2020: Witcher 3, Control and Ghostrunner. Hard disk requirements are 40Gb, 43GB and 22GB respectively. Moreover they are first person s...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Okaaaaay Here I am on map 6 of the Dwarven campaign. Following Maltz's advice, I waited until day 7 of week 4 before freeing Kari. You'd think that now I have plenty of time in the middle phase of this map to do other things? Nope. Day 1 Week 5, Red AI player's top heroes Hangvul and Tolgar were at ...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Okay... just documenting a few things (this post will be changed in future when I make a walkthrough) Dwarven campaign mission 3, Greed is Good (or something like that). You're supposed to accumulate lots of wealth while defeating your four opponents allied against you. This is nowhere as tough as a...

Re: Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Amazing, Pol! Your link led to so many other mods! What this tells me, is that it is not that difficult to mod this game. If it's not so hard to mod to get rid of bugs, can't the original guys who did it patch it properly? Pathetic Ubisoft quality. BTW Antalyan's mod almost led to a minor disaster f...

Re: Unoffical Community Patch (UCP)

Antalyan, I was looking at the documentation for your mod. It says the game has to be at v 2.2.1, and must have both the original and trial by fire. I recall 2.2.1 was the last ever patch before they stopped all game support. Basically 1.8 jumped to 2.2.1. Am I right to understand that your mod will...

Ubisoft's Latest Disaster for Me

Dear Fellow Forummers As you know, I've had great contempt for Ubisoft for a long time. My current experiences have continued to sustain my feelings of contempt for this company. A few months ago I posted an appeal for Uplay logins. I have finally found my Uplay account and password while spring-cle...

In Memory of Docent Picolan

Hi, I'm posting this here because I couldn't comment on the news article posted on 15 Nov. Very sorry to hear that Docent Picolan, the leader of the HOTA project, is dead. The article did not say how he died. I do hope to know. Was it Covid? Was it a car accident? Was it crime? Or some private reaso...

Re: Appeal for Uplay Game Logins and a Win10 rant

Has anyone in the community come up with a crack that allows you to play a LEGIT version of H7 OFFLINE yet? I have seen some references on ubisxxt's site about not needing to go online to play H7, but I remember I had to do that to play H7 all the same. I have come across a Malaysian site that sells...

Re: Appeal for Uplay Game Logins and a Win10 rant

Ubisoft doesn't even seem to understand that they are so bad that they are now in competition with software pirates. Software Pirates: Unethical, socially irresponsible. Free No need to rely on Uplay. let you play offline. Ubisxxt: Unethical company that never delivers, irresponsible to its fans and...

Re: Appeal for Uplay Game Logins and a Win10 rant

Hi Panda Tar, darn, there was a clickable link that showed all that info! The Kinguin full pack seems pretty good. There is no mention of Heroes III HD, so maybe it is a regional thing where they package H3 also for Brazil (and charge more money) because it's really cheap, around 10 Euros, for my re...

I need some advice

Dear Friends and Forum members As I've said before, I paid for H7 vanilla. I never paid for extra content or expansion. Since I've lost my account, it would seem that I could either pay for H7 again (repulsive, but acceptable if there is a good deal that includes the expansion), or I should try hunt...

Re: Appeal for Uplay Game Logins and a Win10 rant

Thanks for your recommendations; both Age of Wonders and Endless Legend seem very up my alley actually. But I've decided not to get new games. Too much real world life to worry about to risk getting addicted. Seriously, my gaming skills are so bad now. I suspect my desire to play H6 and H7 is really...

Re: Appeal for Uplay Game Logins and a Win10 rant

I should admit here, that I did consider pirating the game. Torrents are still available online. But sad to say, I don't like H6 that much. I don't like it enough to want to pirate it, because any pirated version still requires me to scan using my Norton Antivirus, then install, then patch, then hac...
