Please make the pyramids higher btw, their might must not be minimized!


Heroes 3 has 254x128 size limits but I bypassed it by creating composite objects = multiple parts. So We can now make pyramids as big as the map itself. For example, my Atlantis city, from 12 objects.






For me, Heroes 5 should have combined the simplicity and fluidity of H3 game play (dont change to 3D!!), H4 graphics and alpha features, transparency etc, simply because they are the best, then wog modability, 100% access to the core code, being able to mod everything, add anything, safe and friendly.

Good Evening heroescommunity,


I saw a great deal from Good Old Games dot com where I could buy the whole Heroes-series (I-V) for 15 bucks. However after reading some system requirements they say that Heroes IV is compatible with XP or Vista. I wonder if that is old information so I would like to know if the game could run on Windows 10?

Without having Win 10 myself, I've read both yes and no. I believe some have had issues while others haven't. And some only being related to the editor. It seems Equilibris editor is currently unable to open in Win10, but you can find treads about troubleshooting regarding Win 10 in this forum and on Celestialheavens.com, in case you should run into issues when trying to run the game.

Heroes IV is the only heroes I can't force myself playing and that means something.

It's for me, the worst Heroes tied with 1 & 7.

I think Heroes2 will always be my favourite but its mainly for sentimental reasons, H4 is a very close second and having played all the games apart from 6 and 7 it's the only Heroes game I play now, so I suppose that means it's the one that I enjoy the most and has kept me interested after all this time

I have Hero's 1-6. 3 & 4 are my favorites and wog rules them all.That being said,H4 would have been my favorite if it had a random map generator. I really loved the campaigns and I absolutely loved the heroes as a unit on the battlefield. I thought it was innovated and I get no greater pleasure than taking 7 heroes and annihilating hundreds black dragons with legions of Medusa's,orcs, hundreds bone dragons,hundreds of crusaders ,hundreds of death nights and hundreds of efreet all at he same time and suffering no casualties. It reminds me of dungeons & dragons, 7 dudes on a adventure. I loved the skills u can have in H4.There's a wide selection of skills and magic 2 choose from.Things I didn't like was no random map generator,ugly heroes and the fact u couldn't choose your starting hero. Hero's 5 was my least favorite,it took the AI entirely 2 long 2 take its turn

3d graphic

I agree,I also like 3D battle map,a single combat(I prefer barbarian)hero fighting legions of creatures and even other mighty combat heroes,but they have to be strong enough,I usually give them dragon strength,giant strength,potion of strenght,bless,potion of toughness or hydra health(equilibris),both health rings(artifacts),soul stealer for life creatures,fizbin of misfortune or amulet of fear,halberd of the swiftwatch comes in handy when fighting DRAGON GOLEM.In equilibris 3.55 campaign editor you can add new artifacts, like
griffin helm(that one I most prefer),shoes that levitate you across the battlefield,and many other new quest huts and new prisons,banks,walls that were in tournament,if you are looking for mods,recently nimo star has made 2 of them,already, worth of playing.

You can join our online league and try game with real opponents.

But for RMG we must be sure that created map is playable and balanced - also checked in editor before the game.

@Salamandre. It seems Namerutan might be on to something that could enable you to add new objects to H4. http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=37350&pagenumber=3
Also NimoStar's mod revealed alot of exciting stuff, like the ability to change the function of objects or make heroes look like creatures. Seems the dream of a H4.5 could indeed come true.

Modding the Unmoddable
posted October 23, 2016 01:18 AM

I think indeed we are making great advances, we may not have 100% "WOG-like" moddability but we have new objects, object types change, soon we will be able to change all graphics hopefully, AND we have fighting heroes and scripts...

Something bad is that we cannot contact many of the oldest Equilibris members that had most of the .exe editing prowess, but well.

To me the main limit is the little amount of people that care about the game after over 10 years of no updates/upgrades, and not being much popular to begin with...

My mod took me perhaps hundreds of hours, and however the last version was only ever downloaded by 7 (!) people... and have gotten not much feedback from them :/

Yeah, you play a version so moded I can't almost recognize the game. True Resurrection spell for 12 points? So angel's resurrection is more expensive, they have reserve points or less spellpoints?
What is this? Regular Equilibris mod?

@NimoStar, have you considered making a tread on Celestialheavens.com as well? 7 ppl. ain't much indeed, but I think you need to spread the word on more H4 fan sites. And how about the modding fansite?
Oh, and I don't think you can expect much feedback. When my campaign passed the first 1000 downloads I only heard from 1 couple who contacted me by mail. A few posted on the forum, but there just seem to be low rate on feedback.

Well, we are playing regular Equilibris mod in our league. I never studied statistics but Im sure it is more balanced version than normal H4.

Putting new adventure objects,a hero creatures and more is like a new version of equilibris to me,Nimo.You really put a lot of work,time,struggle,devotion and love into this version of heroes,as far the equilibris exists,I believe.I think that we all must thank you for that.
