Remeber how when you first started in Clouds you went into the tavern, the people there would have hints on the warehouse, the rats there, etc. On the CD the voice over only said: go away I'm drinking or some such nonsense. Needless to say I sent it back with a few choice words.
That was a great game!!!
I still have the orinigal HOMM 2 with all expansions, I should probably load it a play, if I can tear myself away fro CotN.
I had the original cds of MM4 and MM5 and combined them to become world of Xeen.. later I bought the millenium edition which also had 'remastered' mm4-5 disks
yes they remastered it alright.. even in the taverns when you drank they wouldn't give you hints.. all it would say is "drink some more".. this is because the hints caused a strange crash freeze bug for a lot of people and rather than fixing it they removed it entirely!
they also changed spell names like "Divine Intervention" to "mystic intervention"
it was BS!
I also found an original HOMM2 expansion disk
it turns out that the town music in the expansion is different from the original and to be honest I like them a lot more
