Lost book of Ekelbreth scrap:
Quote:
"A tyme of stryfe and woe shall follow the 'Aege of Shefar' and in this Aege, all shall fall to naught as the gates of chaos are opened unto Enroth. And this shall be a sygn unto ye- when the elemental forces of the Earth, the Wind, and Fyre, and the Water shall freely roam your lands to usher death and destruction upon theyr wings, ye shall have entered the fynale Aege, 'the Aege of Purification.' Once this Aege hath begun, there shalt be no recourse. For lo' the lords of the Earth, the Wind, the Fyre, and the Water both giveth lyfe unto thee and stryketh lyfe from thee. In tymes of stryfe the cycle of destruction cannot be avoided and thyne only repose shall be death. However, in tymes of harmony those that gather in allyance shall stand the possibility of surviving the purification and warding off the end of the 'Aege of Shefar' to enjoy a prolonged era of peace."

It's absolutely fantastic that you managed to put all rendered pictures in one post. I'll use it for reference, I'm gonna design each MM place from scratch as it would be great to do MM 7 and 8 overhaul and make the world more alive, more detailed.

I bought the 'might and magic humble bundle' a long time ago, but barely touched any of the games

After seing this, I really want to try and play the game......You'll be hearing from me again soon, either thanking you for a great time, cursing you for making me addicted for something again or coming to hunt you down for reasons unknown. .

P.S. I found M&M X amusing (not great) but this game seems better to me, is it?

Replace your topic to Dimension gates. Here is about Jadame stuff.
I found that one animation is lost. Dragon cave animation is not here.

Sounds intriguing, please keep us updated?

Well, one is made by NWC and the other by Ubilol, of course this one is leagues better, duh.

And what is wrong with Jadame being in the Library?
Mad Lab too is missing as well as a few others, as I mention in the OP:

I decided to extract each and everyone of them and convert them to gif (aside a few that couldn't convert properly) because I genuinely think they deserve it


If you can do it I'll add it.

Oh yeah I joined people that want to redo MM8, I don't know how it's gonna end but I'll go crazy with concept art regardless.

I try to start to model 3D stuff, - some really basic ones like this lamp :

http://i.imgur.com/2ggt5Ov.png

I also did long time ago concept art for how imo Tatalia should look like:

http://i.imgur.com/JbDaTTK.jpg  (<- it's just a quick sketch which I made to show what I mean how Tatalia should look and feel like)

I'll do some more detailed one later.

But the team wants to start with MM8 and I'll start with Blood Dagger Islands, but the problem is that in game many buildings don't match rendered picture, like Alchemist lab - it's clearly stone made picture on the render, but in game it's wooden hut.

So wut now?

definitely the ingame world requires a fair amount of redesign to fit with the high quality animated scenes lol

in any remake or upgrade I would personally prioritise doing what's necessary to be faithful to the animations over what is in the ingame wherever applicable, after all it would be so immensely cool to explore those scenes in real time lol

Thanks a lot! There's such an immense beauty in the artwork and animations from the NWC era. It's painful. Comparing those to the post-NWC stuff feels like comparing Michelangelo to Justin Bieber or Oscar Wilde with Fifty Shades of Grey.

Personally, MM7 was my absolute favourite, but a remastered MM8 would be fantastic as well.

No I don't, I'm complete Nooby with modding. I just got involved but I'm very enthusiastic about it since I adored HoMM world and I believe MM could be a mindblowing game with updated graphics.

I also would like to update MM7, actually I believe the remake is meant to have all 3 games combined. MM6-8.

Each continent is beautiful and holds plenty of nostalgia. Although admittedly I quit playing MM6 after insufferable controls and super slow pace :<

So I don't know much about story in MM6 however graphical challenge for Enroth is still worth trying as I did campaigns in HoMM2.

Echo MM7 mod:

MM8 mod and download:

MM8Echomod

I like too all three games but Jadame is the best graphic and storyline. And modded has good ballance too. Best ballanced is MMVII but graphic is some poor and storyline cutted. No real Tatalia, Krewlod, Eofull and Deyia. Enroth is beauty but storyline not so rich and game options too. Eg. only 3 lvl skills and only 30 skills. First is Jadame but I like all.
So we should open new topic about modding MM.

In case of MM8 it does look slightly better, but I'd like to implement new 3D models and sculpt the terrain to be less squary.

In MM7 tho well the portraits looks worse, specially that blondie looks very uncanny, tho I'd love to have a genie (I really dislike elves for some reason, however the Dark elves are somehow interesting).

I also wanted to ask if anyone has a ready save so I could roam through each zone and make some reference pictures. I recently finished MM8 but I don't have yet the patience to go through entire mm7 yet.

Times have changed much.. while the old games are still very much gems in their own right, the market seemed to have completely disappeared. Without new games to sustain interest, it is just preservation of nostalgia, or perhaps the living out of a slow death.

Btw, I played Legacy, which was "okay", all things considered, but it died pretty quickly too
