@espen15: Well, it's a long story. Here goes:

3DO created this game when they were already in their decline (they were nearly bankrupt). They released the game half-finished and horribly buggy to attempt to get another source of revenue. But...that just explains why 3DO did it.

The main reason H4 is so unpopular is that it's different. Heroes fight in the battlefield alongside troops being the main difference. Troops in the adventure map can also move around without being in a hero's army (but, cannot claim towns or mines). Also, the whole "hero in battlefield" concept was good, but horribly unbalanced. High level heroes could massacre huge stacks of neutral units on their own.

I'll admit that I preferred the simultaneous retaliation system (you attack, I retaliate at the same time.) in H4 to the classic system of H3 (which is the same retaliation system used in H5), but in the end, I ended up just returning to Heroes 3...that is, until Heroes 5 was released.

To its defense, it had quite a few innovative things, like advanced hero classes (classes you could unlock by taking certain skills) for example, but in the end all H4 managed to do was divide the fanbase between people who prefer H3 and those who prefer H4.

Hope that answers your question.

If you're familiar with the H3 luck/morale system, then all you really need to know is that luck effects defense instead of attack, and morale no longer is effected by creature allignments within an army. Otherwise, yeah, a guide would be nice for teh n00bs.


I know this was from a long time ago, but I thought morale is precisely affected by alignment of creatures within the army?

Going to have to ask:  what is the differance between speed, movement, and Adventure movement?  I'm guessing that the AdvMov is how far the unit will walk on the adventure map, but what about speed and movement?  Is Speed equivilant to initiative, and movement the number of spaces a unit can walk on the battlefield?  Or has something gone horribly, horribly wrong and I have no idea about what is going on?

Asking for the purposes of the ICTC competition; I always preferred the way HOMM4 handled its unit ladder over other entries'.

Town Gate Spell

I'm just curious if anyone else has tried using the Town Gate spell in combat. It may be a major glitch in the game, or a massive understated combat option. Typically, when you are in combat, your Adventure Map spells don't appear in your spellbook. I can't test this currently because my computer refuses to play HOMM4 (and as of this morning, HOMM 3! ) but I recall a battle years ago that I stumbled across this.

I had bitten off more than I could chew with a neutral army guarding an artifact and risked losing my army I'd worked so hard to procure. I was going through my spell options and Town Gate was on the page. I assumed if I clicked it a little message box would appear saying that it was an "Adventure Map Only" spell or something to that effect. What DID happen? A little gate appeared above each of my army members' heads (similar to the sanctuary spell) and my screen changed to the adventure map, with my hero and army intact in my nearest town.

Has anyone else tried this? I should mention that I have the original version with no expansions. But man, what a pleasant surprise and option preferable to retreating!

You just now know?

YEs, in vanilla H4 Town Gate works in combat.

I was going to do a whole map based on this mechanic, but it is disabled for Equilibris, and thus for my mod that copies it's programming...

That is to say, this only works on Vainilla H4 and it's expansions, not on Equilibris or Greatest Mod

Sadly that, because, as you noticed it, it has a nice special FX
