i find it fishy that you only need 64 signatures. since when did 64 fans ever change the mind of a company? seems to me like a phishing scheme, giving the information required to fill this out.

that said, i wouldn't sign this petition anyway. i like modding HoMM3. if i have to wait for someone to reverse engineer a new HoMM3, i will have lost a lot of time. and chances are, it wouldn't live up to the old series anyway.

don't get me wrong, i used to want the same thing. but i really don't see the point now. continuing the series is a better idea, only in the same vein as HoMM3. they could have come out with a billion different expansions for HoMM3, and i would have been perfectly satisfied with that.

About the phishing, it's also what i was afraid of, but which website doesn't collect E-mails nowadays. Fact is, it will really get send to Ubisoft, so i did sign it because i just love HoMM3.
I always dreamed of a remake for my Xbox 360, having new oponents to play against, online, everyday easily would be so wunderfull for me.
Ubisoft surely has the source files, and so could probably fast make such a project. Hardest part would probably be to redoo the 2D graphics so they look great in Full HD.

I really beleive in 2D graphics,much more than in what they did in 3D in HoMM 5 and 6

Well, not really. In H3HDMOD the screen just gets smaller to fits to the resolution, and if you go too high, it looks like a postcard. I play slightly above original res because well, it is so beautiful when it takes all the screen ! A full reskin would be a real HD remake.

what I don't really get, isn't it easier to play the existing game now, rather than to wait for a remake that may never happen?

there is a timesplitters remake being made right now. I'm a big fan of timesplitters, and yet, contrary to other fans, I'm not really excited. I actually still play the original games, whereas I doubt it's the case of most other so called fans.

They will not do HMM3 (both in terms of gameplay and file formats) exactly. And this will be closed source.
I don't see reason in this.
As HMM3 fan, i don't play HMM4-6, so i will be ignoring this hypotetic game also.
We have VCMI/WOG already.

Even if they'd ever consider going back to HoMM 3 and do a remake of the game, they'll end up changing so much beyond just the graphics to make it a sell, that you probably wouldn't recognize it anymore.

If someone ever is going to make a HD remake of HoMM 3 by just doing a graphics overhaul, Ubisoft wont be the ones to do it.

Golden words. There is no reason for Ubisoft to develop an old storyline further. They do have a lot of their own Ashan fanboys.

So, what exactly do you think Unisoft could do about this? As HMM3 is a pixel game, you either need (to my understanding) to add more terrain to the battle fields/towns to fill out any empty space at any given resolution higher than 800x600. You couldn't possibly do a 'a full reskin' for every resolution.

Or, alternatively - and better yet - the 4:3 aspect town/battle screens could be scaled up instead of just getting smaller when you increase the resolution. This is the best 'HD' scenario that I can imagine. Maybe this is something beyond what 'HD mod' will be able to achieve. The black borders at non-aspect could then be filled with some kind of art (like interface art).

But the advantage when these screens (battle/town) is getting smaller is that they'll also look sharper. I think that 'HD mod' works great up to 1920x1080.
