ATI Catalyst 10.4 are said to fix some 2d slowness under Windows 7. Can anyone confirm that it applies to Heroes IV as well?

re Equilibris

I have HOMM4 complete and I am wondering about the equilibris mod.
Does it make a significant difference to a beginner; I have not played any of the campaigns yet.
thanks

Since you're starting, you should play the campaigns in the regular mode. But you'll find you that Equilibrus allows you to play the game without the CD. A plus in my book.

Thanks ByteBandit (great moniker)
Will Equilibris alter or interfer with the campaigns; or will it just make the balancing changes to the skills & creatures etc?
Would be handy not havint to use the cd.

I own the original homm4 CDs (first and two expansions) and the CD is required for the game to be played .. I think (I haven't used them in a long long time). I ended up buying a DVD off of ebay that both homm3 and homm4 plus all expansions. Once you've installed the homm4 games, you don't need the disk to play but you do need the disk the drive if you play any of the homm3 games (bummer that but I use MagicISO to get around that issue).

Here's what I'm referring to:
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Heroes-Might-and-Magic-III-3-IV-4-COMPLETE-PC-/200496155726?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item2eae808c4e#ht_1596wt_1137

I don't expect that link to last too long since it's an ebay sale.

However, if the Equilibrus will make the disk needed issue go away without having to re-buy the game, then that's a good option. I couldn't get Equilibrus running myself and gave up after an hour or so of frustration.

I had a problem at first with Equilibris but once I downloaded the exe file for WoW it installed fine...I hope!

You are right; I have the 3&4 complete dvd too and can play 4 but not 3 without the dvd.

Have you played 4 and do you like it?

Athis,

I've played HOMM4 since it was released and it is my favorite of the five. I think the direction they went in with 4 was a great step with crisp, beautiful artwork and excellent skill paths. I do miss the individual skills of the characters but I guess that's what the skill path was supposed to make up for (ie: Solmyr having chain lightening as his specialty in homm3 but not having it in 4). Altogether though, I think 4 is superior to the previous incarnations. They paid close attention to detail (I once mentioned previously on this board somewhere how lightening strikes have different sounds if there's more than one in succession (the echo effect sounding different perhaps)). If you pay attention, you'll notice a great number of little things they added in for effect that you wouldn't typically expect.

Another question about Equilibris?

I installed Eq and then mistakenly used the original H4 icon instead of the Eq icon to begin a campaign. Now if I load Eq I can see my save game - but will it be ok? are they compatible? If I play my H4 save game through Eq will I run into problems?

Thanks

Edited by Athis at 19:27, 03 Aug 2010.

Is it correct that Heroes with nobility and estates do not generate gold if garrisoned in a town - that they have to be out in the world?

edit: I notice that some peasants I hired do not contribute to income if garrisoned - according to the kingdom overview - only if either outside town or visiting.

Is this correct?
I am using Equilibris.

Hopefully, this is where I should be asking. So, does anyone know exactly how the Behemoth's Strength ability works? I get it increases the damage he deals, but by how much, to be precise?

Missing 'Show' in Combat

Hello!

Suddenly in Combat had disappeared marker (pointer/indicator) for ‘Damage Numbers’. In Combat Options I have checked (confirm) all ‘Shows’ but in Combat field shows just ‘Death Numbers’, ‘Other Numbers’ ‘Movement Shadow’ and ‘Combat Grid’.
Sometimes (just for a moment) shows the ‘Damage numbers’ but this is very rarely.
What is wrong? In the past this was working perfect.
Thanks for your answers.

First of all you must give names to those 5 computer towns.
Then (in the 'Map Properties') choose 'Continuous Event' and the 'Script' have to be like this:

CONDITIONAL ACTION
  IF Current Player is human AND
     Current Player owns the town named "XXX" AND
     Current Player owns the town named "YYY" AND ...
  THEN
     Current Player Wins

Hello all, I'm currently going through the HoM&MIV campaigns, and I'm facing an annoying bug.

Namely, in some maps, my heroes don't appear.

In the last mission of the Life campaign, I've read that I'm supposed to have 6 heroes : Lysander, Protheo, Worton's mother and father, plus my two highest level heroes. Yet, I only start with Lysander and Protheo.

I restarted the campaign, cheated my way through the first missions, and started this one again, this time with Protheo, and Worton's parents. No Lysander whatsoever.

Same thing happened in the Order campaign. After the 4th mission (playing the Genie against some necromancer), I'm supposed to switch back to Emilia and Tharj. Except that when the mission starts, there's no Emilia or Tharj. Which, you will admit, kind of suck.

I'm patched up to 2.0 (can't patch the french version to 3.0). Am I doomed ?

Not sure. What operating system are you using. My first instincts would suggest a permissions issue to the location that heroes saves to. Makes sure the folder used for autosave (the default heroes folder?) has write permissions for your user account. In windows7 (and vista probably) the permissions for program files are locked up pretty tight. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\3DO\Heroes of Might and Magic IV (which is the location where my HOMM4 game is installed), right click the folder (the Heroes of Might and Magic IV folder) and check permissions. Users aren't allowed write permissions but administrators are. Does your account have admin rights? If not, make sure your specific account has rights to write to that directory (and all child directories just to be safe).

Im using Windows7. And yeah, the location my HOMM4 is installed is the same as yours. And Ive done the thing with the permissions, but its still not working I still get the same "Autosave failed" message. The funny thing is that when I installed it in the first place, it worked fine. And only few days later the message started to pop up for me
