    If you need an objective review of the nintendo version of M&MII, don't forget this classic.

    Those look very nice! Kind of bad they are still basically for grey and brown dungeons maybe they could be touched up to have more contrast? Are these only for environment or also mobs?
    Is there a version for M&M6?

    Are there HD textures for MM6? I don't care much for MM7 due to the skill exploit.

    I'm going to do the Merge mod since I'm moving the other MM6 stuff to be Patreon exclusive. Again, my solo dragon will look to start in MM7.

    I feel like doing another M&M VII run, is Cleric / Sorc / Sorc / Sorc as overpowered as it is in VI where it completely breaks the balance in later game?

    Don't expect many levels in MM7. I struggled with the game and I truly hated the skill exploit.

    I really wish they would have built more on Arcomage. That thing is so fun even tho it's too easy. I remember there's a standalone version somewhere I think

    It's got a hump but you eventually get there. Except vs Minotaurs IIRC.

    Annoying part of MM6-9 is how good the RT is vs the TB.

    There is a stand alone version as I have it on one of my hard drives. I install it every once in awhile to play.

    edit: It's an Arcromage "tribute" but it's identical to the game found in M&M.

    They’re both decent games. MtG was around then IIRC but the CCG aspect wasn’t as widely appreciated as it was when Gwent came along.

    Ironically Gwent is closer to Garfield’s original vision than MtG itself turned out to be.

    I dunno, I never got into Gwent for some reason. I would need to give it another try I guess.

    Ah, but MM6-8 aren't real 3D games, they're 2.5D, and thus exempt to those complaints. :positive:

    Unfortunately I have to put MM1 on hold for a little while. Who knew that moving across the US would be so time-consuming.

    Anyone tried to reach upper hive floors in Alvar from M&M 6-8? I don't remember much issues in the original M&M8 but now - can't reach more than one floor because they're like few pixels too high to climb with Jump spell. Can't reach remining honey jars :(
    Also - it stutter like hell there when you walk under larger floor hole, so you can only lure bees here. If you can reach them with limited camera control (feels like Build engine camera limits), that's it...
