While I feel like the cutscene looks a bit out of place for H3, I will most likely change my opinion when I will get to play the game.

Thank you for keeping up the work!


I'm quite glad it looks out of place because I think the cutscenes are where HoMM3 shows its age in the worst way.

I wonder if it would be possible to replace the old cut-scenes with new, more detailed ones.

That was what Heroes III HD was supposed to do. Ofc in a universe in which Ubisoft actually cared...

Assuming an acceptance of AI upscaling and a competent handling, it would almost certainly be possible for fans to spiff up the cinematics (after all, it's been done by fans to full-motion video in games to successful result). Of course, that wouldn't add any new details.

But they care... about making a quick buck.

(Without actually having played the HD edition, just judging from screenshots) I can say that inn general I really like what they did w.r.t. graphics assets.
There are some spots though where the HDfication was done quite slouchy. The Rampart town screen for instance is troubled with major glitches/blurry items.

It is the RoE-base and the Steam obligation which make the HD remake a no-no.

@everyone

You're lucky you never actually played the HD Scam/Cashgrab Edition. It's actually so much worse than the screenshots show it to be, graphically speaking (as if changing the visual style wasn't enough to begin with). Someone should make the spasmatic Magi from there a meme or smt, he's animated worse than many frankensteined H3 creatures, poor guy.

Hi all!

In order to keep you entertain i thought i'd share you some past work from Romero that i found while investigating after the announcement of his contribution to the work of HotA.

Here is the link to the video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPvLDfu4Irs

I really enjoyed it myself and i thought i'd share!

12:42 (Homm2 sorceress castle) and 57:13 (Homm4 floating across water) really are two great passage i really liked. I knew about Homm2 but the Homm4 soundtrack is a discovery!

But the absolute best track is at 1:06:39​ for the Homm3 tower theme. Absolutely wonderful, even better than the in game version!

I hope you enjoy these as much as i do.

I highly doubt that. AfaIk, you can get H3 and presumably HotA running on android devices using exagear.
