fheroes2 is an open source recreation of the original game engine, built to be cross-platform and without the limitations of original engine. The project roadmap is defined in milestones, each having its own goals. 1.0 version will be a full faithful remake with modern multiplayer, high resolution support and improved AI. Fheroes2 was originally hosted on SourceForge back in the day. The original developer stopped project development around 2016 leaving it in a half-finished state. That's why it is a "continuation", picking up where the project was left, fixing and upgrading what is needed.

In the past months our team released few updates:
- 0.9.2 version adds every Spell implementation View World, instant battle replay, even more smarter AI in battles and more than 100 bugs were fixed.
- 0.9.1 version adds View World, instant battles, enhanced AI and contains fixes for more than 50 bugs.
- 0.9 version introduces new AI, mass spell highglighted areas, further game optimizations and over 100 fixed bugs.
- 0.8.4 version improves game performance, fixes many game logics, adds extended support of keyboard and fixes full screen mode for SDL 2 with more than 100 bugs fixed.
- 0.8.3 version upgrades AI to the next level, improves rendering speed, adds proper rendering of original sprites with more than 100 bugs fixed.
- 0.8.2 version adds a brand new AI implementation with reworked version of map information structure and with more than 100 bugs fixed.
- 0.8.1 version contains a new rendering engine to address many issues with graphics and more than 50 bugs fixed.
- 0.8 version is a major release where we fixed most of UI issues in the game with more than 200 bugs fixed.
- 0.7 version where we resurrected the project, setup compilation on all major OSes, fixed most of game's crashes and a bunch of bugs. Here we established our future priorities and strategy in developing.

We're pleased to announce a new release of fheroes2 - 0.8.1 version.

Greeting, players and fans of Heroes of Might and Magic II!

We're happy to announce a fresh release of fheroes2 - 0.8.2 version. This is an intermediate release towards 0.9 version which contains some not very noticeable but very important changes: we finally released a brand new AI, polished many-many UI issues, change the structure of maps, added deeper support of campaign and made user friendly interface for external music which is present in full version of the game.   Positive moral

Now movement of heroes of the map is delightfully smooth as in the original game. Also take a look of fixed UI elements in the battle (take a look at extra surrounding shadows of monsters and truncated shadow of Phoenix in 0.8.1 version):

0.8.1:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 0_8_110

0.8.2:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 0_8_210

We also fixed more than 100 bugs for this release. Fireblast

We hope that you'd like our project even more! Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 1090364995

Dear fans and players of Heroes of Might and Magic II!

We're excited to announce a new release of fheroes2 - 0.8.3 version. This is an intermediate release just before 0.9 version with many interesting changes. One of them is that AI became even smarter: it properly manipulates castle construction, monster and hero recruitment, creates a complex and optimized routes over map to visit needed objects, fights monsters and collect items on the way. Also we improved rendering speed of the world map by more than 20%, fixed drawings in castles (the original game draws them improperly), fixed well-known War Troll's stone and Cavalry sprites (also incorrect in the original game) and made many other changes.

Have a look at screenshots from the original game and our project (notice how Tavern or Hut for example are rendered):

original:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Barbar11

0.8.3:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Barbar10

and here's a comparison of Cavalry sprite and War Troll's stone (note that we didn't modify the original resources):

original:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Cavalr11

0.8.3:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Cavalr10

original:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Troll_11

0.8.3:
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Troll_10

As usual we also fixed more than 100 bugs for this release. Haste

Enjoy it! Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 2674570714

Good day/evening/morning, fans of Heroes of Might and Magic 2

We're very excited to reveal a new release of fheroes2 - 0.8.4 version just before Christmas and New Year holidays! The team decided to split 0.9 release and give you an opportunity to enjoy the better game once we polish few more things before major 0.9 release. For this release we made main focus on game's logic and mechanics and fixed many places in the game: scrollbars, unit stack separation by keyboard, UI dialog elements and interaction with objects on maps. More importantly, we improve game's performance on low-profile devices and fixed the issue with full screen for SDL 2 builds. As usual here is a set of screenshots for visual changes of the game:
- Freeman's Foundry (notice that the original game does not show the third monster)

Greetings, Heroes of Might and Magic 2 fans!

Just recently we released previous update and now we're presenting a new version of fheroes2 project! Every month the game engine becomes better, faster and higher quality!
You can have a chance to try 0.9.1 release where our unstoppable team fixed a lot of issues and added something new to the game:

- we added an option of instant battle where you can finally skip boring and extremely easy battles saving your time

You can choose between manual and instant battle with or without spellcasting
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Auto_b10

- window resizing on SDL 2 was included in the release allowing users to choose any resolution and still play in a windowed mode
- AI has become even more craftier and smarter! Be ready to face it on the map and during battles!
- finally we added "View World" feature which was demanded by many players. There are some polish actions required but you can fully use the feature without issues

(Related spells will be implemented soon)
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements View_w10

- the team completed implementation of fast unit splitting with mouse: now you can master a new way and immediately sort all your troops with just few clicks

(With the help of fast split buttons you can easily divide a troop into several or even redistribute both selected stacks)
Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Unit_s10

- A partial continuation of campaign was also added into the release where you can test your skills in first few scenarios of the original campaigns. Please keep in mind that the project is still in active development so the full campaign support will be surely added upon 1.0 release.

In this month our squad fixed more than 50 bugs and rewrote a lot of source code to optimize the game and fix any potential issues.Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 2234040487

Greetings, dear Heroes of Might and Magic II fans!

The first month of spring was marked by the enormous enthusiasm of our heroic team. And here's 0.9.2 release!

The team finally added support of view type spells - View Heroes/Towns/Artifacts/Resources/Mines/All. From now on all spells from the original game are fully supported by fheroes2! On top of this we fixed many issues with other spells such as Hypnotize, Blind or Berserk. Wizard's Hat

Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Spells11

In the newest version you could encounter large obstacles in battles which were missing before due to incorrect implementation. Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 492241716

Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Obstac10

Also a huge work was done for AI. Now your opponent won't hesitate to use some powerful mass spells, blind your monsters or just destroy everything with a single lightning shot or with annihilating Armageddon! Moreover, AI takes an advantage of 2-hex attacking creatures and it will make sure to hit as many foes as possible. Attack

In previous release we added an option of instant battle. We decided to improve it, as a result the team added a Restart button. A player who is unhappy with instant battle results can hit the button and replay the battle manually.

Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements Restar10

On top of all this we fixed more than 100 bugs.  Free Heroes of Might and Magic II (fheroes2) General Announcements 2219019649
