I’ve been trying and retrying the final level forever now. It’s incredibly hard, because all of the other 3 players are attacking only you, not each other.
I’m not saying I’m giving up, but… I’m feeling quite hopeless about this.
So rnlf and I played a multiplayer game yesterday. We had planned for more people to join, but we soon learned… HOMM only supports 2 people playing over IPX 🙁 😀
It went quite well: no real technical issues and I won the game, haha. It took ages though. Even on the smallest map, we easily burnt through the entire evening like it was nothing.
Now apparently HOMM does support 4 people in hot seat mode. Maybe we can set up a VM which we can get into using VNC, like we did with Scorched Earth. The cool benefit of this would be that we could stream that game to Twitch. That could be fun!
Oooh, nice! Level 3 can actually be quite tricky, depending on how it unfolds. You might think you’re doing well and then one of the AIs suddenly finds the treasure and it’s game over. Good job on beating it!
Yeah, the different objectives are nice, but I think it’s just fighting to the death from here on out though, haha.
I believe there are 8 levels in total, in case you were wondering.
It’s definitely one of those “just one more turn” games where it’s suddenly 4 am and you don’t know what happened 😀
Did you manage to beat level 2?
I did beat level 5 yesterday and I’ve played a little bit of level 6. It’s tough as nails though, so I’ll probably have to restart it a few times to get a good one going. So far I’m just exploring the map, but I’m already getting beaten up quite badly by the other guy, who seems to send strong heroes to my home town right from the start 🙁
By the way – there really is only 1 campaign in the game. The only difference is your starting hero/town, but the maps & goals are the same between all the different lords you choose from the beginning.
I’m trying to beat the campaign using Lord Alamar (the warlock). I’m currently on mission 5 and it’s getting really quite challenging, so I’m not sure I’m actually able to finish the game. But I’m giving it my all!
