    Heh didn't know there was a 3, own 2 on disk, not a bad game on paper, but massive balance issues. Many entire class, and quite a few of the class/race combos are just pure garbage.
    I don't know what i'm talking about, ignore me.

    Thousands of years ago, Egyptians worshipped what would become our ordinary housecat. The cats have never forgotten this.

    Yeah I have it on GOG. I'm gonna re-install it and try the unofficial patch, which apparently adds a shit load of balance changes.

    There's a change log here: http://etheria.wikia.com/wiki/Patch_Downloads

    Anyone know how to get 2 working, (win8), couldn't resist grabbing my disks but it really did not want to work . I can get into a skirmish match or campaign. Into an actual battle basically, but after a few minutes it just crashes and compatibility doesn't fix it . Might have to look into that emulator thing i heard microsoft provides which lets you emulate older windows OS's. can;t remember what it's called to properly look for it...

    Try the GOG forums, then the Warlords Battlecry series sub-forum. There are numerous fixes listed.

    If by numerous you mean "use compatibility mode and mess with resolution" sure. None of that's work though as i'd allready tried it.

    Aren't the GOG versions of the games, in general, supposed to work out of the box on modern systems?

    You'd hope but apparently it's just a copy of the old disked version. Sadfaace .

    It's infuriating too. Sure it had some serious balance issues to the point of annoyance but it also had a whole bunch of really cool idea's too. In fact it's morale/command system was a strong inspiraition for a component of a tabletop system i've been working on, on and off for a number of year's. It's basically GW leadership done right.

    GoG generally patches things to work, though there are a few which have defeated them. Conquest Frontier Wars even has its source code on GOG up for download due to the fact it defeated them on windows 8.

    Your going to laugh at me. I decided to take one last stab at it and picked a different map for variety. And bam works. Best guess is the first map like the heroes is a self made import, (it found all my vista era data but i started a new hero), and it's been broken by the re-install somehow. So yay and nay all in one .

    I wasn't trying to turn it into a discussion, but when i hit a snag this seemed the best place to post my issue, and once i figured it out it made sense to let everyone know what went wrong.

    Fair warning on getting Warlords Battlecry 3 off Steam instead of GoG.

    The Steam version comes with a fan made patch that breaks game modes and adds the word 'bitch' to various tool tips, such as the warning that pops up when your buildings are being attacked.

    LOL as if that got through Steam... adds bitch randomly? That is pro.

    I only have the GoG version. Honestly, having played both, if you enjoy 2 you may as well get 3. It's just bigger and better, and some of the new races are really good - for example, dividing the Humans into Knights and Empire - whereas the original races have had some balance changes and new stuff.

    For the price it is, you're getting a really solid RTS.

    For those that like Homeworld - may have seen this in 2005 ;-) Real Time Small Fleet Tactics with Pause mode, all weapons on each ship can be targeted seperately etc...
    Used to have some issues with Win10 and Full HD resolutions, but Nordic Games (who bought the rights to the IP a few months ago) just put out a major patch that fixed most of the modern system issues and long standing bugs.

    Cannot go wrong with 2,50 bucks.
    Good god, it's been ages...

    Jupiter incident is fantastic and an utter steal at that price!

    The newest Humble Bundle features Homeworld Remastered at the top tier ($12).

    The Humble Store has a reprise weekend for their recent Spring Sale.

    For the games they have (on sale), I don't expect much difference in pricing compared to whatever is going to happen on Steam for their summer sale.

    The Witcher franchise is on a 50ish % off sale until the end of month on Steam. Good deal for any of them, especially if you go for the franchise which is all three games for like 30€

    Humble is repeating their excellent Ubisoft bundle from earlier in the year: https://www.humblebundle.com/ubisoft-bundle-encore

    Everything through the 15$ tier is a nice chunk of good gaming (save The Crew which is mediocre)

    The Paradox Summer Sale is on as well. If there's any Crusaders Kings 2, Europa Universalis 4 or other content you're missing, well, it's very cheap.

    Ubisoft is giving away Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time for free, the occasion being their 30th anniversary.
    Yes, you need UPlay... Still, it's one of those preciously rare videogames that actually succeeds in its attempt at storytelling, and it comes with decent gameplay as well! One of my all time favourites.

    The Humble Store is doing a Quakecon sale with some 50% off titles like Fallout 4, Doom and Skyrim.

    If you haven't played any of them and were waiting for a sale to pick them up... 50% isn't bad.
    It takes a lot of argument
    to convince most people
    that they are lying.

    HUGE Company of Heroes 1 and 2 bundles on Humble
    https://www.humblebundle.com/company...th-anniversary

    I always feel that one of Coh2's failings was going with so many stand alone and MP upgrade options that by the end of it the casual outsider is left very confused what to buy - least with this bundle you can't go wrong!

    https://www.humblebundle.com/books/t...ic-book-bundle
    They've also a huge bundle on IDW Transformers and GI Joe comics
