Post news RSS MMH5.5: Release Notes (RC16b)

A new release is ready for download with many bugfixes for the full campaign release.

Posted by on

Today we release RC16b, a bugfix update for both multiplayer and the campaigns. Unfortunately RC16 was not as bugfree as we had hoped, so we uploaded a complete re-release, apologies for the inconvenience. If you already have RC16 installed you can install RC16b over it, but take very good care to point it to the right folder during installation procedure! If you are updating from an older version then use the mod's uninstaller first!

Is it just me or a bug: C1M1 (the Queen) cannot be complete although all objectives are done? My excitement has to stop just in a few minutes of gameplay :)

many have already passed that mission, did you use the right exe? install patch 3.1 before h55?, did you collect enough troops?

Thanks for your reminder! I've checked and indeed I used the wrong .exe (from a wrong shortcut). Passed the mission, mate :)

Is it possible to make the campaign more hardcore by adding heroes to neutral stacks?

no, but there are other ways, at least in theory

Man, I can't stop playing the campaigns, at this rate I'm gonna lose my job D:
I have a couple of questions/suggestions:

1.Is it possible to get a quick heads up at the start of a mission whether or not artifacts are going to transfer to the next mission ? Sometimes they don't (Mage mission 4, The alliance, Zehir starts without any artifacts) and it would be nice to know beforehand and not waste time trying to get the best gear.

2. If you enjoy grinding, your heroes get ridiculously strong, my Findan for example had around 60 attack, 40 def, 30 spellpower, 40 knowledge at the end of the elf campaign. When he appeared later in the mage campaign he got even stronger with over 70 attack and 50 def. It feels good to start with a weak hero and turn them into a killing machine, but the later missions feel anticlimactic if the enemy is weak even on impossible difficulty. For example the mage campaign, mission 4, Zehir is already buffed up, you also get super strong Findan and Raelag from previous campaigns, (Godric too, but mine was a useless secondary), capture 7 nearly unprotected towns and a ton of resource buildings, but Isabel is sitting there with 1 town and a small army, you don't need much preparation to attack her. I imagine balancing is a painful task, but is there anything that can be done about this ?

Btw the last mission of the mage campaign was so good, the battles were so satisfying. The only downside was my god awful Godric, I had to give him the best stacks and artifacts from other heroes so he could stand a chance :D

1. is a bug, but cause is hard to find because the code is there and not triggering the debugger
2. may also be a few cases of too many skills carrying over, but even without them I estimate most of it is original map design

I think there's a bug in mission 2 of Wulfsten campaign. After liberating all the dwellings a quest appears saying repulse the imperial attack, but the imperial attack never comes. I've tried waiting till month 4, nothing happens. It's worth mentioning that I've explored the entire map before liberating the last dwelling. On the lower left of the map upstairs there's a road that leads to the end of the map. It looks like the place for spawning the enemy hero, but maybe I broke something by being there first.

Also the rune recycling ability doesn't work, at least in the campaign. I'm using exactly one rune on one stack once per battle, but the resources don't come back after battle

i was just fixing this today, but it looks like this mission 2 bug only happens on impossible level?

Hey and thank you for your awesome work!
Is there any official way of sending in bug reports, so it can be easier for you to review them?
