Any news of this? My lucky coin says this will a big success.


Hehe, hopefully Atm, Im not really sure when the next version of the beta will come. Not sure if mister_kalu knows, but he probably has a better idea Not many know about the mod so thats why I decided to make a website and later I will possibly spread it around some more forums. Also I might do some gameplay videos

Right now Im trying to improve the website on which I will post more news of the mod, you can check it out from time to time, and register to see whats new going on. Also Im doing the Fortress buildings but I dont really have time to do much in that aspect :/ I did some animations for some of the creatures but they are still not done yet either.
However the Serpent Fly's upgraded version is done and the lizardman is nearly finished too.
There are also new cursors and some buildings which are put into homm2 style. Also new improved small icons of the creatures.
Improved animations of Heavy Crossbowman and also some new iterfaces ( garrison and the small icons of attack, defense,shots and so on.More balanced statistics of the creatures.  
For now its all I can remeber. Probably mister_kalu has done something as well.

Hello, just joined today. This mod is fantastic! Have you got a webpage or something where we can see the progress? Also, any news in general? It seems like its dead or are you busy lately? I wish there would be some people who could help you with this mod because its one of the best that I have played!

Hello Zenal and welcome! At the moment I dont have much time but I will try to post some upcomings or maybe mister_kalu will. The mod is not dead, but it takes time to do everything. Im working on the Fortress buildings and and on the fortress townscreen. Also on the Breeder and some other creatures.

I just wanted to share something and I would like to know your opinion.. is this creature interface better? Its more to the style of Homm2, but what do you think? Better than the picture behind them? I personally think with the picture is a bit of a mess..

HI!

The mod looks funny although a few suggestions:
-do not use commmander creature numbers for non-commander creatures - they have more than medium amount of hardcoded differences to any other creature
-if you made all H2 units replace only regular units, I would be proud of you if you allow using your mod with commander feature. That would of course need to recreate Commander Defs in H2 style. They may use same hardcoded settings as original commanders, but you may want to modify they some. Most of settings can be changed with regular scripting, but if you want more I may share with you my dirty tricks (which enable me to disable some medium amount of parts of commander feature, and replace those which I don't want to be entirely disabled) and some UN:C codes (not tested yet, but acquired from Bersy, they consist of changing creature number range of hardcoded features intended for commander, including possibility to change to empty range = disable, there already about 50 adresses already found with constants with such profile).
-if you are sure that you don't want commanders in your mod, you still can use most of UN:C codes from the list to use commander creature slots as more regular creatures (it will fix some bugs in your mod resulting from ERM commands working different on them), but if the only reason for disabling commanders is creature count limit - I suggest to consider to depend on ERA and Amethyst (to increase creature slot limits, although it may add some more bugs to be polished or accepted).
- did you consider replacing some new artifacts with ones from H2? (including their functionality). If you want to add H2 artifacts independently of the H3 ones I suggest considering to dpend on ERA and Emerald (to allow you use up to 5000 of new blank artifacts which could be scripted, plugin is really stable)
- have you considered to make some more use of WoG to include some features you were missing in H2? It could change the project from "move to WoG everything you loved in H2" to "make WoG like H2 you dreamed of". Of course new features to choose is up to you, and it will need much of scripting. If scripting is not enough for you I suggest considering to use some of new cool modding features from ERA (including ability to prepare dll plugin which talks with game engine, ERA core and ERM interpreter/compiler).

Hello, unfortunately mister_kalu doesn't have much time to spend on the mod. I also dont have much time to do the graphics which means that everything goes really slow. I tried to look for some people which could help us, but no luck. I would really like to find another graphics to help me with the animations for the creatures and other things. Im sure mister_kalu would also really like a programmer who could help him too. For now, we both cannot do much but if few people would join us everything would go much quicker.

hey man, ive got all the time in the world, but i have to have the know-how, and the programs to use to work on the stuff. im downloading the game as-is now. im very excited to be a part of something ive wanted for awhile.

heroes 1 was my intro into the heroes universe, when heroes 2 came out, i loved it. when heroes 3 came out, i loved it more. i hated the way they changed the game in 4 tho, so i never played that one or any one after. i like the old-school look much better. sounds too. then when wog came out, i was like a little girl getting a pony, lol. i squealed.

Excellent work, waiting for beta.
P.S. I personally think the gate tunnel of the garrison is a bit small compared to such massive towers and walls.

Wait

A little question-if I see corectly,the wait button is missing from the screen 5-does this mean that it is removed from the mod?
And nobody except me sees its not there anymore?
