View Full Version : Old HoMMs: general advice and direction

15-01-2003, 13:51:05
Found a "bargain" old HoMMs six-pack and decided to get it.
It includes
HoMM II + addon
HoMM III + 2 addons

I never saw even a demo, only knew it by name and fame, it's TBS and Fantasy (and for how I still enjoy from time to time the lovely MoM that really shows its age).

Should I just start from the beginning and climb up the ladder, or is there anything that I should know to look for/avoid?
Wasn't there here a HoMM addict/guru poster?

Yeah. IIRC, it's Shining1.

I'd suggest you start at 1 and work your way up. They build on each other, and change some balances of old and whatnot, so I think it's best to learn in order they were published. Otherwise, you might be a bit disappointed, going backward.

But it's been a very long time since I did most of that HoMM line.
