Hammers of Fate missing Kingdom Overview Tab

Hello.

I read this entire thread and didn't see my problem reported.

Background Information: I have Homm V, and both expansions. I updated all of them. For the original game, I have version 1.6. I played that and finished all the campaigns. Now I just started playing Hammers of Fate. I have version 2.1

The game works fine and doesn't crash, but there are 2 changes that aren't mentioned in the HOF manual; one small and one big.

The small change is that when right-clicking on a stack of creatures, in HOMM V, it would tell you the level of danger, which I liked. For instance, Very Low, Low, Normal, No Chance, etc. In HOF, it's back to the number of creatures, such as Few, Several, Pack, etc. Is it possible to have the creature stacks display the way they did in the original HOMM V?

The BIG CHANGE is that the Kingdom Overview Tab is missing from the Scenario Information in HOF. In HOMM V, when you clicked on the Scenario Information button, it would open a display with 3 Tabs: Mission Objectives, Mission Log, and Kingdom Overview. In my HOF, there is no Kingdom Overview Tab. That lets you see info about all your Heroes, Towns, and Resources.

I can't believe they would just omit that information and no one else has mentioned it, so I figure it's just a problem with my game.

Does anyone know how I can get the Kingdom Overview Tab back in HOF?

Thanks for any help.

Hello!

They released Hammers of Fate based off of Homm 5 v1.3, then they went back and continued improving Homm 5 to v1.6 and left Hammers of Fate out hanging.  Hammers of Fate only includes the features added in patch 1.3 and below.  There are actually tons of differences in addition to the missing kingdom overview and the missing dangometer like no mana button, no sleep button, no dark energy bar, different skill wheels, no wait button... just to mention a few.

There isn't a way that I found to get those features back because they are hard coded in the different EXE files.  No mod can add such features.

Maybe you can find a place to download the Hammers of Fate scenarios and play them in Tribes of the East to gain such features.  I personally haven't tried that though.

Thanks, fulano.

That's crazy that they left all those features out of HOF. I will try your idea and try to see if I can play the HOF scenarios in Tribes of the East.

Thanks, again.

Ya, I found that Tribes of the East works a lot better and is only a few dollars more so I got rid of my copy of Hammers of Fate.

Hey guys,

I recently finished the Heroes5 Campaign and I moved to hammers of fate. I noticed that in combat after being attacked creatures are standing idle for a while before retaliating. I downloaded the latest patch (2.1) and it seems to still occur. Have you faced anything similar?

Hey excalibur!

The game is huge mess before version 3.1
I would advise you to install Tribes of the east explansion (it patches up to 3.0) and then use the official patch for 3.1.

I would also advise you to straight install Heroes 5.5 mod and start the campaign from start.

Here is a guide on how to install the mod. It also provides knowledge on how to upgrade up to game patch 3.1 if you mind using the mod.

Cheers

Hey, I installed the mod you suggested. So far so good!
One question. The AI turn bar is barely visible. Is there any option to make it clear?

As far as I know this is by design so it does not obscure adventure map view. Why is that a problem for you?

It's not a problem it would be ust easier to check AI's turn. When I first installed the mod I couldn't really understand what was going on when I was ending my turn since I didn't notice it was at the bottom.

Hey,

I am facing an issue with the Town portal management spell. It seems like it allows me to travel to any castle but it never works. It drains all my movement point but never teleports me to the castle. Am I doing something wrong here?

As far as I've noticed,this game has some serious problems.

Heroes V - good game,but few maps and a lot of minor bugs.

Hammer of fate 2.0 - Instant travel spell needs remove,otherwise your in for a very very slow game.And even then,sometimes it takes forever to load.

On RMG : this one needs more work,since it's a lot of times imbalanced,and it repeats the same factions many times.

Gameplay on rmg : after you selected the right ones,some games are very boring (AI rarely attacks),and on some you get attacked with a level 15 hero in 1 week or 2.What were they thinking?.Did they purposely try to ruin the game?.

Scenario 3 on rmg : you get attacked soon by a powerfull enemy and you stay in defensive mood (around town),or you engage in a risky fight with random armies and you loose almost all of them.

Once your short on troops,the AI attacks you like a deranged psychopath.Sometimes it's playable,but sometimes there's no way to win the fight,unless you resort to cheating (via cheat console before the fight begins).

Also,when your engaged in a necropolis town siege,the game sometimes crashes.

Hammer of fate 2.1 - this once is almost done right,but with one major flow - the game crashes after entering in a fortress fight.

Tribes of the east - this one I haven't played too much,since the town music always reapeats itself like a broken record.

In conclusion : it's a amazing game (good 3d raphics,good music and strategy),but with a lot of bugs,problems and imbalances that almost ruins the experience.

The AI takes way too long to complete a turn that it's nearly impossible to enjoy a single game.
