Has the idea of heroes 3 hd edition + AB + SOD + HOTA in HD graphics. So it was meant. I would like to modify heroes 3 with outdated graphics.




Ok its your idea. But who want work? Easiest way is I think using highest res graphic to VCMI... From HD ed we need only graphic engine is in VCMI, rest graphic must be done... But who has time to do it? My idea is more castles, options and masteristaion classic Heroes III. Ive played 600x800 all the time and still enjoy graphic...

Just because the hd edition is a completely redrawed graphics - which is completely different from the outdated heroes 3 graphics. Definitely doing AB + SOD, it would make a lot of revival.

Really? Ubi griffin is till so bad? Dont play it. HIII resolution is good. If I give higher res computer stretch look and I see the same :-) How is sense? My monitor is still 20 inch :-) I understand really old games 200x320, maybe 480x640 but 600x800 is good quality.

Ubi's HD Edition looks quite good on my 42" tv. I understand flood at that version, but playing at large monitors is quite enjoyable.

Yes 42' and higher... rectangles are visible. I play 20' and classic is enough :-) For laptops 14'  600x800 is to much pixels :-)

The lads over at Microsoft Studios showed us how you remaster a game of this age. Age of Empires 2 HD Edition improved on the orginal UI, the graphics and they brought a LOT of NEW content.

Ubi gave us some "improved" graphics that don't even seem to fit the old style.
And they gave us LESS content than the original game. Even the UI is clumsier since it's only RoE without space bar usability.

Fix for this was released the same day as this video, which is 2 weeks after HD Edition's launch:

HD Edition gets and has always gotten a lot of flak for things that were fixed from day 0 or the following immediate period rather than the actual flaws and shortcomings that remain, of which there are plenty.

All the shortcomings that the HD edition has is that they do not include AB + SOD. It would be very good to get there.

I pray this never happen again. Fortunately the probability is very small. We will certainly be doomed otherwise. However, if New World Computing will be restored to full glory and ubisoft ceases to exist then this will be a quite different story.

No, if this wasn't enough there is more which spoils it. The redesign was executed poorly. The bluriness aside there are many spots where they actually botched and introduced new visual glitches. What is more, being compulsed to use Steam is a no-no for many people.

And I just don't want to live without the gameplay+usability enhancements HD mod + HotA broght along or the customability you can achieve via ERA.

Steams shackles of slavery is not my dream but my horror :-) For few pixels more? Never! But it will never happen. Market brand MM is destructed. And UBI dont have source code AB and SoD! Reverse enginering is bigger work than new game. Only way is VCMI :-):-):-) Here you have all full code. This discusion is only theoretical...

My days at Heroes 3 have ended. The game is still the same and no more than 2000 modes will save it, and the future is at Heroes 7, which is better than repair.
† The HD version was an opportunity to do something about heroes 3 and do not turn away from graphics today.

I like Ubi. They made a great deal of work on Heroes!
This guy is paid by Ubi for sure.
