Known issues =============== Switching off the 'V-Sync' option in your video driver options may cause twitchy animation in Towns if you rotate the camera manually. Loading a save from a version in another language may cause font and textual interface problems. Yahoo Messenger may conflict with multiplayer. Please make sure it is inactive when playing the game on ubi.com Any changes made in replay via Movie Maker are not present in the save loaded with the Combat Replay. Movie maker should be used to view edited replays now. A number of maps created in the Map Editor via the Save As command from the single map will have the same names in the User Campaigns Editor and in the Custom Game Menu irrespective of the names that were entered during the save procedure. To correct it you will need to change the names of these maps via the Map Editor in the ordinary way (View menu -> Map Properties, General Map Properties tab, a Map Name field). To use new hotkeys in moviemaker, add the following lines to the input.cfg file located in your current profiles folder (My Documents\My Games\Heroes of Might and Magic V\Profiles folder). bindsection replay_battle_screen bind skip_scene 'ESC' bind set_pause 'SPACE' bind step_forward 'RIGHT' bind step_backward 'LEFT' bind step_to_start 'CTRL' + 'LEFT' bind step_to_end 'CTRL' + 'RIGHT' bind speed_up 'UP' bind speed_down 'DOWN'
