Hi looney4labs and Barb smile

Oh, yes !! I too enjoyed coming back, when stronger, to cause pandemonium against those who once terrorised me in M&M 6 lol

Well, I've played a little further into M&M 8 now and found a few more shops and waded to another island. So some progress at least !!

But wading across the water can bring my party close to death !! scared

I definitely think I'm going to be much slower at "improving" in this game.
In fact, as real time "passes as you play", after a fashion, I could very well end up a rather creaky old Hero snicker


Cheers.

Mad wave

You don't have to go in the water, Mad. There are teleporters that will take you to the next island with the temple. Find frederick Talimere in one of the houses & he will have the artifact necessary to use the teleporters.

If you played M&M 6, you must be a pretty good fighter! I thought that game was hard! I've been playing it, & got all the way to doing VARN, but have a glitch that won't let me enter the place. So I can't finish it.I couldn't find a patch to fix it I thought getting it from GOG would solve the problem, but it didn't. Maybe I'll play M&M 8 too!

I found Frederick Talimere some time ago, Barb, but the only teleporters I've tried so far have just taken me to differents spots on the original island. That's why I tried "wading".
I guess I'd better try some more !! woozy

And, oh !! [Now here's another laugh for you, looney4labs grin]
Although, yes, I love playing M&M 6, I've never actually made it to the end. It gets way too difficult for me in the last chapters. But I do always enjoy playing through as far as I can.

Indeed .... I can probably count on one hand the RPGs I've managed to totally complete but that doesn't bother me if I'm having a good time !!
And I won't even mention how often I decide to re-start one because I've suddenly fathomed better what I ought to be doing !! lol

I can't stand to not complete a game once I've gotten into it. I've finished M&M6 3 or 4 times before I ran into the bug & it is VERY hard. It wasn't until M&M7 that you could use Invisibility. As long as you're having fun, that's what counts!

The teleporter you should use is one of the 2 right in town. It does take you to a different place on the same island, but then you should take another teleporter to the island with the temple.

Mad, most of those games do get much harder near the end. I always want to know how the story ends, but really, I just have fun building up my character and learning new stuff, so I'm ok with not finishing as long as I'm having fun. wave

Thanks Barb...glad you are able to help.

Hi Mad,
You guys talking about Might and Magic 8 have got me looking for my CD. lol Did you have any trouble getting it to play of Windows 7, 64 bit? I have 6 & 7 installed, but I had to find some patches for them.
Loved the Might & Magic games. Going to try to install it.

Hi Kay,

I haven't tried to install MM8 on 7, but it did run on XP. I've had a problem just recently. I tried to install it this morning & it won't run. Mad has me wanting to play it, too, so I'll probably try it again. Hope you can find your disks, it'll be fun to play it together. I love all the M&Ms, too, except I and II.

Barb

I'm playing mine on my old Win98SE computer laugh
[It plays beautifully on that so I haven't bothered with either WinXP or Win7.]

Anyway, thanks for more help and encouragement.
And I'm certainly going to try the teleporting as it should be done, later lol

Hi Barb and Mad, happydance
Yay! I got it to run on my windows 7, 64 bit.
First I installed it, then set it to run using software. It wouldn't work using the hardware.
I also, set the compatibility mode for windows 98, put a check mark in disable visual themes, disable desktop composition, disable display scaling on high DPI settings, and I put a check mark to run this program as administrator.
Then I went to the internet and found a patch and installed it.
Then when it started, under options (where the save and load game is), I set the turn to smooth. It was already set to 16X. That was too fast. It was going to far when I would turn. It's working great now! Hope you have good luck with it too!
Kay smile
Thanks Looney4labs!

Way to go, Kay! I got mine going too, but with my husband's help. He's the real "techie" in our house. Have you started the game yet? I'm going to start this morning. How's it coming, Mad?

Hi Barb, I'm in the abandoned temple now. Made it through to the outside once, but had to rest. Came back to finish the job. lol What town is the dragon cave in to hire the dragon. I remember it but forgot how to get to it.
