When I bought Tribes of the East as a stand alone game, I figured it would have all the campaigns. sadly it didn't and I can't find the original Heroes 5 anywhere now... Is there a place to download the older campaigns?

Afraid not, the only way you can get them is either by buying a gold edition or some other pack that collects them all.. perhaps you can still find the silver edition..

That sucks, had I known I was getting screwed out of the campaigns I would have bought them when they were available... I decided to wait cause it sounded like Tribes of the East included everything. Didn't find out until after I bought it that none of the campaigns and scenerio's were included. Sucks to be me.

We all make mistakes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Worry not, you might be able to secure the other games somehow.

Yep. I also made a big fuss about it, how I got "gypped" for having bought the earlier games...

but Sfidanza wouldn't release it until he got approval from Ubisoft...I think he mentions in the thread somewhere...

Anyway, I still have some perks for having bought the originals, like LOTA which can only be played with HoF.

Uh, no dialogue scenes? That kinda defeats the purprose doesn't it. aren't the diualogue/cut scenes the things that explain the story and objectives?

I see dialog scenes here:

Anyway, within a mission you can press 'o' to pull up the objectives screen and read the objectives at any time.

This doesn't seem to work, I downloaded all 3 files and extracted them into the usermod folder, I start up the game but I can't find any of the campaigns... The campaign screen just shows the normal 4 Tribes of the East and the the User Campaigns shows nothing.

I will investigate and get back to this topic when I have more time.

Yah, looking at the top above the campaign selection, in the screen shot it looks like there should be 3 icons there, but I've extracted ALL the files into the user mod folder and these icons are not there in game. I can only play Tribes of the East campaigns
