POLE7645: The 1.9.3 version of the patch is now released.

Change Log


New in version 1.9.3:
[-] When you move between locations sound buffers were freed while the sounds are playing. Also some resources weren't freed.
[-] My bug: There was a crash in the load screen if Saves folder is empty.

New in version 1.9.1:
[-] Version 1.9 was hanging in Free Haven.

New in version 1.9:
[+] Now Delphi memory manager is used. The limit on amount of allocated memory is removed.
[+] Door state switching command extended. Now modders can pass 3 instead of 2 to switch door state even if it's moving.
[-] Now Starburst and Meteor Shower can't be used on monsters that are beyond the reach of arrows.
[-] Party generation screen animation speed is now limited.
[-] Fixed a couple of index-out-of-bounds errors.

Someone update the first post.
How do I invert Y axis for the mouse?
I can't play with mouselook unless I can do that.. thank you.

I tried windowed mode.. it brought me back to a really low resolution of my desktop, unable to see much.. and can't see the game window. Win7 64bit 28" monitor 1900x res.

ArgentStar: Version naming convention means 1.10 is MORE recent than 1.7. It's one-point-ten, not one-point-one-zero. You don't clip the trailing zero. :)
When you use math, 1.1 appears older than 1.7.
Zeros can be assumed on 1.1 or 1.7, making them 1.10 or 1.70.


UPDATE: Thank you JMich.. if you put a negative value into the Y axis sensitivity, it goes inverted! Yay!

Yeah. Programmers like to make things as awkward as possible for anyone who isn't a programmer. :D
Version 1.12 in Linux Mint Cinnamon and works fine :)

Where did you get 1.12 from? I could only find 1.11.2.

Sorry, (in bold) is what I meant.
Thanks for clarifying. As I bought the game recently, I wanted to have the most up to date patch for it.
Having a bit of an issue. Before GoG existed, I downloaded a pirated version of MM6 which I played every now and then over the years.

I've now bought the GoG version and patched it, and I want to import my save files. Does anyone know how I'd go about doing that?

waltc: and I am absolutely certainly that you are the only person on the Internet to call it "horrible advice"...;) That's a definite first. My advice on this point is actually excellent.

JMich: Actually, it is horrible advice. Most programs don't require elevated privileges, they require write permission on the folder they are installed at. For older software it's acceptable since that was always the case (for example Dos programs), for any program developed from 2000 onwards it's shitty programming practices (there is a reason for the documents folder, use it).
So far, only programs I've seen that truly require admin privileges are programs that modify Operating System files, mess with memory, or need specific access to hardware. No game should have to be run in Admin mode, and any game that requires it is almost certainly a sign of a shitty programmer.
You would never expect a linux program to require SU privileges, why do you expect all Windows programs to require it?
LoL...have it your way...;) This will be my final response on this strange subject.

I'm not talking about administering a network, I'm talking to people running their own private systems at home. RaggieRags in this very thread found that his game wouldn't run outside of admin mode--or did you forget who I was responding to, in your haste to tell him how stupid he was to actually run his game with elevated privileges as it wouldn't run without them. I guess you'd rather people not run their games at all than to run them elevated, just so you can feel better about your own bad advice? The practice has never caused me any trouble. Yet, ironically, rarely a day goes by when I don't read in some forum somewhere that someone has just discovered how to run his program or game: by simply running it as admin. I guess you miss those posts, just like you missed RaggieRags in this thread. Try and be more observant. Some people actually call publisher tech support about the issue, believe it or not.

I'm sorry but, really, nobody gives a damn who is a "shitty programmer" and who isn't...;) They just want their software/games to run. I don't blame them at all. Sorry that you find running games in elevation to be so bothersome. I've never had a problem with it--not since I started the practice after having trouble running some of my extant programs in Vista x64, several years ago. Someone gave me that excellent advice way back then and I've never had reason to regret it and I run *a lot* of stuff. Trust me--if it was "horrible advice" then I wouldn't have given it and I certainly wouldn't be taking it. It's fine with me if you are so opposed to running in elevation that you'd rather not run your games if they require it. But don't jump all over people who prefer to run their software, even if it does require elevated privileges. Sure, you don't want to give viruses and Trojans elevated privileges, but no one is talking about that. Are they? (Or maybe you are, I dunno what you're afraid of here.)

waltc: snip
Sweet mother of god, that's a late reply...

I never said don't run Might and Magic 6 as an administrator, if that's what is required. I said that running everything elevated is a horrible advice.

waltc: It's surprising how many people seem not to know that in Win7 you should run run *every single program you run* in Admin mode
You do know that it is possible to completely mess up a system by doing this, right? And not with a virus, a simple batch file.

Let me put it this way. Quite a few of the Antivirus Suites there block the GOG installers, due to the popularity filters (This file isn't downloaded often, and may be dangerous). The usual advice is to turn of the AV and run the installer. Do you consider that sane/good advice?

And just to ponder a bit more, why does a game need write access to system folders, registry, or hardware calls? Because that is the usual problem with games not running if not run as admin.
Is there any way we can use this patch but have it _not_ fix the meteor shower and starburst distance bugs? I remember when I played this game over 10 years ago, I used to run around dragonsands nuking everything, and it was a lot o fun! For nostalgic reasons I'd still like to do that, but I still want to be able to remap keyboard keys. It'd be great if there was a mm6.ini flag that toggled the fix.
Did I get this correctly - GrayFace MM6 Patch is not installed by default when using GOG version of the game?
And it is recommended to use it, am I right?

Thank you, will use it then :)
So i installed the patch, and i still get a crash every time I open the game. Any suggestions?
