MMH5.5 is an unofficial expansion pack for HOMM5 Tribes of the East or HOMM5 Complete and a spiritual successor to the popular WOG modification for HOMM3. The pack will include many new adventure objects, new larger battlefields, new heroes, new classes, new specializations, new skills, new artifacts, new adventure spells, new HD textures and a greatly improved RMG with more than 60 'visualized' Templates. The AI is much more intelligent and calculated much faster. Balance is also greatly improved both for small competitive multiplayer maps as well as crazy XXXL maps with countless epic battles vs Neutrals and AI.

  7. Considerations

    • Unless your native language is English, you can download appropriate language and campaign dialog pak files from here.
    • Owners of Steam game version should use EXEs provided by the mod - MMH55_64.exe MMH55_Utility_64.exe instead of running the Steam launcher
    • ARMG editor requires administrator privileges to save map files on the Windows System Drive (C:). To go around the issue start the game as Administrator (Right click -> “Run As Administrator”) or just install the game on a non-system drive.

Upgrade instructions

  1. Uninstall the current version of the mod by starting Unintal.exe in <game directory>
  2. Do a fresh install by following the guide above.
  3. Considerations:
    • After upgrade start a new game as saved games will not have new changes applied

If the mod does not run or game experience issues check the F.A.Q. 99% of existing problems are already solved.
