Poll Question:
HotA Old Sprites' Faith

Phoenix4Ever, and maybe some other peoples really enjoyed the old sprites from Heroes 3, but I am fine with it. So I though that your opinions could be great, if someone says that NOONE enjoyed the old sprites, or if EVERYONE enjoyed the old sprites, you could react.

So, the question is:
What shall be the faith of the Old Sprites ?



Again, changing the sprites for a noob of modding, or someone could be hard. Please, don't post thinks like:
Everyone enjoys them

So a think must be made clearly, it isn't a topic about what shall really be happening, but what your opinion is. Anyways, HotA made those new textures with a reason, but let's PLEASE clarify this problem once and forever.


Responses:
The Old Sprites could be putt back
The New Sprites are great, noone needs the old ones :P
There shall be an option to choose between them.

I am not so sure, TWcrport.def and CPRsmall.def aren't in hota.lod or I am blind. Without those defs you can't revert portraits.

IMHO is out of the question anyway, if one wants to mod there is WoG/ERA for that purpose.

Creatures portraits can be in form of separate PCX in HOTA bitmap lod.

I don't want to change them, I enjoy the new textures, theyr awsome, and Wog/ERA simply couldn't apply to HotA.
I mean HotA does have Cove for example, and Wog/ERA doesn't have.
Well, and sure, it shall be pretty sure, but let's say some kids of 9 years couldn't do it that way

Actually both HotA and original ones are there, except that the orignal was renamed to TWCRPORD.def so it won't be used

Maybe you use filter for files (not "Interface") in MMA?

Well no, from slider bar we can see that my hota.lod is much bigger, I have more files (see fonts under un44.def) but not those twcrport.

Look at my second screenshot, it's the same as yours. I can see your TwCr***.pcx portraits. My first one must be from an older version then

Then it means creature portraits are used as TwCrNN.pcx. Try to replace PCX file for pikeman and see what happens in game.

husham123, I think that a word "fate" would be more proper for this topic than "faith", if you talk about the future of those old sprites.

Same goes with the poll: having an oppinion that it'd be great to have a choice whether you want to play with old or new sprites is something different than saying "it shall be".  Saying "it should" would be okay, as for having an oppinion is not equal (at least in many cases, including this one) to having powers to make your oppinion and/or project real.

I know that you didn't mean to act bossy, cheeky or such and I believe over 90% people who read your post actually understood your point of view (like me).

Personally I'd opt for having an option to choose between old and new sprites, but as I have already said in different thread: I'm completely alright with the new appearances and it was easy for me to get use to them.

I don't really HATE them, I just like the old ones better, so I think it would be nice having a choice between new and old/classic creatures and heroes. (Including sound of orcs)
So far I have'nt bothered changing them back and I've also heard they revert back to their HotA-state with every update and I don't wanna change this all the time, so I'm trying to accept the new ones, but I think I will always like the classics better.
