    The English box releases of Clouds of Xeen and Darkside of Xeen have freakish huge boxes, wasn't aware of that because on images you can't really see it. Damn I love them

    (for comparison the small goldbox type boxes and normal sized one for ID)

    Mike Winterbauer's art was for NWC was fantastic and totally deserves that oversized box. IIRC he also drew the cloth maps for both Xeen games, the Spaceward Ho box art, and one of the Wing Commanders.

    He drew Sheltem for the Darkside box too <3

    Spaceward Ho, the great project eater. The only game on the Mac Lab Macs, and the only one you needed. Later came Warlords to add insult to injury.

    I was briefly contemplating getting the Larry Elmore art for MM6, but the prints are too small for my taste to justify $30.

    Given the good results from posting about the Merge mod on my YouTube channel, I'm going to dedicate time to Merge on my LP sessions. There are good mods out now that truly change the game enough to warrant investigation. I'll be focusing on a number of those mods on my YouTube channel.

    Can't wait to see what moronic things he has to say about Might and Magic

    Will he actually play the games or just stock up on Research knowledge

    I have yet to see any "professional" site bother doing research especially for games. I have my history of M&M on Celestial Heavens. I originally wrote it for Gamebanshee, but they never contacted me back. Right now, I am more likely to have my upcoming novella surpass both my post count and YouTube subscribers.

    I did that and game crashed when you try to pick different classes. Some new ones can be picked but clicking arrows ~10? times in the Class section leads to crash.

    I have used this install procedure https://youtu.be/OTdIZC7HoeU
    This mod install is really confusing. And I do not know exactly what the community version is.

    I have made a mistake in mm678merge mod. I started 1 character in mm8 jadame and then recruited npc characters. They were lvl5 and I lost the very interesting beginning to power up my characters.
    When you are only fighting in pants and using a rusty sword to reach Level2.

    mm6-7-8 merge mod
    There is so much shiny loot.
    I have to open the chests two times because not all treasure can fit in the chest.
    Identify them all, sort them, take home for sale, what a chore! I do not like it at all.

    That's the essence of M&M, what are you doing here?
    Don't you have tiny, greedy inner goblin inside you to feed with phat l00t?

    Yes, I have that greedy inner goblin. That is the problem.
    I remember when played Arcanum and I found the first trash bin. It was full of trash. But I looted all the trash and could not move because I became over encumbered.
    I have been playing M&M for the 100th time. And this merge mod looks too easy and uninteresting.
    I played this merge mod years before but I cannot remember anything about it. I suspect it was so dull.
    Never mind, I have started a solo necromancer "party".

    Necromancer solo game
    Can I use mules? Recruitable characters dead.
    This constant inventory management gets on my nerves.
    I have to bring a lot of HP potion because I have no heal spells.

    Merge can be too easy if you get to MM8. Now given that the engine starts you in MM6, you have to find your way to MM7 and MM8. I suspect the only way to do that is using Town Portal or Gate Master NPCs.

    Merge is not the only mod out there. There have been a few, and Merge is the most recent one. I don't see how you could have played Merge for years. Maybe you're thinking of Chaos Conspiracy or just vanilla.
