DarkLord it should have no problem running the game, but maybe not with the highest resolution. Your graphics card will be the bottle neck, so you'll just have to test it to see on what settings it runs smoothly.

there was an entire page in FAQ thread discussing a graphic card and no one found it pointless, but when i asked the question it suddenly became "pointless".. i thought everyone is equal here!

@ Brukernavn

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think in your case you can directly compare to the minimum requirements no? The graphics card question was in no way clear from the official info and more for technical experts to answer.

Also not long after it comes out you can most likely go to "Can you run it" (do a search engine search for it)..it checks your computer against the minimum and recommended stats of a game.  Takes awhile before games get added to 'the list' however.

I would wait with buying a new laptop until you actually try the game. Your card is just as (or more) powerful as the recommended HD 3870. Considering it's a laptop you'll use you can't play on 19xx X 12xx resolutions anyway, so I don't think it'll be a problem.
It's just that recommended cards for games doesn't mean cards that can max everything out. To know that you'll simply have to try the game (or the beta or the demo).

Hi, I would really like the Collector's edition, but I notice there's only one link from the German Amazon site. I can't navigate it because I can't read a word of German.

Are there any other sites out there that offer the Collector's edition yet that allow shipping overseas? (Not the deluxe edition mind you)

I am fully determined to get it but I just don't know from where. I can also speak French btw, not fluently, but well enough to place an order from a French site. Thanks!

Question: How will the extra material that the collectors edition and preorders get (like extra ingame heroes and items)work in multiplayer? How will it work on regular maps and campaigns? (Will CE buyers/users have an advantadge or will it simply be unavalible in multiplayer or...?)

(me speculating)
The artifacts I'd say are a straight "not in multiplayer" business unless every starting hero has a decent to good quality artifact to start with, which I consider unlikely.

The heroes on the other hand... probably, but they most likely won't have specializations that are more powerful then those of other heroes.

As for single player I can't speculate.

The most important is the Shader Model 3.without it you can't run the game.So you can give me a list with video cards with shader 3 and 512 MB VideoRam or more?(because I have to buy a new one.my FX 5500 has only 2 shader model and 256 MB Vram).

I hope my machine can get it work really mid-well good. AMD Phenom X4 BE 9950, 4 GB Kingston Ram, Ati HD 4850 Sapphire Vapor-X 512 ram. May be not at 1600*1200 but maybe at 1024-1280 resolution.

I could run H5 with my HD4870 at 1920x1200 and everything maxed with no problem. So I believe you might be able run H6 at 1600x1200 with HD4850.

If i think about it the only requests are 3.0 Shader so any card below it won't work, now the thing is the memory it asks 1 GB video memory that means the game has High rez textures and not so much precessing effects, so for all 512Mb video cards myself included might be in a bit of tight spot because it will have processing power but no memory to load all the textures but how it will be reflected in game ... guess will have to reduce texture details don't know hope they optimize it better so it won't be such a memory hungry game ... or if we opt for high details probably will have have a lot of hiccups an hangings or memory load during gameplay ... not sure I should investigate the mater ...

hmmm, I think the difference between 512 MB and 1 GB isnt that much, AFAIK it only noticeable when you activate AntiAliasing mode, using high resolution > 1080p or using multimonitors.

I believe this is correct too.  Also, with a set size town window you won't have to worry about loading a more complex full screen (sorry.. I had to!).

Takes time for a new one to adjust and dig through the workload



ag.ru community Q&A with Marzhin


Will members of known factions, which are not playable, have some spotlight in the story?

Yes. To say more would be spoiling the story, wouldn˘t it?

Will the Tear of Asha digging be essentially the same? Will there be any more ToA type artifacts, similar to H1, H2 (Ultimate artifact) and H4?

The Tear of Asha mechanics are actually a bit different. This time you have to collect several pieces of an artifact to find the Tear (we're still working on the details).

Another way to find the Tear of Asha is by defeating some of the Bosses, and also it can be awarded through quests.

As usual you can bring the Tear to your town and build a monument that gives you a huge bonus and enhances your faction abilities.

While the Tear is the only artifact that can be obtained that way, there are other powerful artifacts in the game that are not “generic” artifacts – but we˘ll tell you more about those later.

Are heroes' primary stats still given out randomly, considering that the skills are now being chosen by player?

It is mostly pre-determined, but there is still a little randomness. There is a ratio among the stats and when the Hero levels up, if one of his stats is really behind this ratio, this stat will gain an increase.

Will town conversion be an optimal solution most of the time or leaving an orginal town type will give some interesting benefits to the player?

It depends on the player. There are some cool combos that can be obtained by mixing creatures from different factions. So either you want to exploit your faction˘s strategy at its maximum potential, by converting all the cities, or you look for unexpected tactics by mixing creatures from different factions. It˘s really up to you.

Will the adventure map have any dwellings for neutral creatures? How big is the role of neutrals this time?

There is no dwellings for the neutral creatures, but some of them can be summoned with abilities.

Will different spells and abilities affect each other?

There are of course abilities that are more effective when used together, and abilities that reduce the power of the enemy˘s abilities, and so on. One cool thing in Heroes VI is you can really build different Heroes with different types of abilities. The player will be able to find his own combos that fit his play style.

A concrete example: several Water spells cause a "Soak" debuff on the target creatures. Soaked creatures suffer 20% more damage from Lightning spells.

Will the town building plan be unique to every faction like in H5? Are town levels still in the game?

In H6 the town building plans are much more similar to each other compared to H5. We˘re using an idea similar to the town levels: you have to upgrade your town to a certain Tier before you can build certain buildings. There are Tier 1 buildings, Tier 2 buildings, and so on. So you cannot build the Champion dwelling in a mere Village for instance, you need a Tier 3 town (City Hall).

Are "weeks of" still in the game? Any improvements done to them?

The week system is still in, but this time the weeks are not fully random, there˘s a pre-determined calendar. For instance the Week of Festival always happens at the same time of the year. So you can adapt your strategy accordingly. The only weeks that are random are the “unusual creature production” weeks (like the Week of Plague) that can happen in place of any of the standard creature weeks.
On the other hand, the week on which the game begins is random.

Can you mention any well-known and loved buildings we'll be able to visit on the global map and describe some of the new ones?

For instance, there˘s the Arena - you still can get a bonus to your Attack or Defense by visiting it, but you have to fight an army first. But the fight is non-lethal, so creatures lost return to the hero˘s army after the combat. The Shrine of the Seventh Dragon replaces Sylanna˘s Ancient/Tree of Knowledge, it˘s the building where you have to spend resources to gain a free level. And there are several kinds of “battle sites”, for instance the Pyramid haunted by Necropolis creatures. The Crematorium/Cover of Darkness is also back.

For the new ones, there˘s for instance the Hellforge that increases your Might and Magic powers until the end of the week, or the Mother Earth Shrine that gives 10% more Health to your creatures for the next combat…

If you could compare the storyline of H6 to some other work of fiction, what would it be?

The writers of Heroes VI took a lot of inspiration from the “family tragedies” like George R. R. Martin˘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” or Maurice Druon˘s “Les Rois Maudits” (The Cursed Kings, a famous French book series about Philip IV of France and his successors). TV shows like Rome or The Tudors were also a big inspiration.
