Heroes of Might and Magic V Patch

The Might and Magic Website now offers downloads of new patches for Heroes of Might and Magic V, updating various editions of the latest installment in the turn-based strategy series to version 1.1. Word is: "The patch fixes certain interface issues, balances game play in both singleplayer and multiplayer modes, fixes video card errors/conflicts, and addresses other minor issues in the game. Additionally, the patch adds new features to the game: an auto-patcher and 'easy' mode that will help newbies to enter the game smoothly."

Patience?

If I don't finish a game there's usually someone I can give it to who'll get something from it. With HOMM5 I just can't see the point. If I was trawling around the map in anticipation of some deep complex battle then it would be forgivable. But I'm not. In the campaign 99.9% of the battles (in the first campaign anyway) are against neutrals so Hero vs Hero is irrelevent. Not that I'm convinced the hero makes much of a difference compared to, say, a huge stack of marksmen.

On the plus side I went back to Spellforce 2 and am having a lot of fun with it (ironically because it's gotten harder as I progressed).

EDIT: oh oh oh and let's not forget that HOMM5 has brought my PC to its knees at normal detail at 1024x768 with a Athlon64 3600 2Gb ram and a 7800GS - not exactly cutting edge but I'd expect more than a slideshow.

our daily interactions with 'real' people are far more scripted than any game. Your behavior at work... every aspect of your life conforms to a social script we all agree to play by.
