Free Heroes 2 or fheroes2 is an open source engine remake of Heroes of Might and Magic II which allows to play the game on tablets and PCs in various resolutions.



To see max resolution, copy the image URL in a new browser inlet.



Although the current version does not provide a strong AI, the game is still pretty playable in multiplayer, and can be also pretty much fun for people who don't consider them gurus of Heroes 2. The archive should be unpacked in the original Heroes II folder, because it uses the original game resources. To run properly, you will also have to download SDL driver, put it in your Windows folder and restart computer (link below).

Visit the project links:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fheroes2 (Download link there)
http://www.libsdl.org/download-2.0.php (Download SDL)
http://translations.launchpad.net/fheroes2 (Download available translations from English)

Playing this on a tablet sounds pretty interesting.

Being under the impression that you've taken the game's code and rewritten it in Android, I have to ask, why were you unable to convert the game's AI as well? Was that particular area of the code encrypted?

It was not me who created this Smile

The major problem in FreeHeroes is of course the AI. Currently this project is pretty useful only for multiplayer - standard computer AI is weak.
Any project with a rewritten engine meets this kind of problems. It's not the code conversion, it is the complete overhaul so AI is also written from scratch.

Thank you for clarifying that. I'd seen the word 'Overhaul' used when this project was mentioned, but I didn't have any idea what it had meant.

Wonderful job to those who've worked hard to make this, and thank you for posting it~!

I've been contributing to it, via playing, testing, feature suggesting and some optional stat changes, on and off for a number of years.  Andrey Afletdinov is in the process of creating a new editor, but recently RL has got in the way.  Anyone who is interested who can help pay for a dedicated programmer would be well appreciated, note I am taking the initiative in saying this based on my interactions with him.  If I come up with some money sometime I will be definitely helping. =)  Anyway, he'll soldier on at a pace he can manage around RL duties.

By the way, we must invite him here. I am ready to create a separate subforum for this project if he supports the initiative. Since we both seem to know Russian, I guess I will be able to get a special level of understanding with him.

I keep attracting all Enrothians here to provide the most universal and unified community. We also must have the maximum number of ongoing H2 projects so they all will be able to get centralized help and maximum feedback.

Yeah! That's sure it would be good that fheroes2 also join Forums of Enroth. Smile
