This release brings improvements for performance as the team speeded up multiple places including Adventure Map rendering, animations in battle and various windows. This might not be noticeable by most of users but significant for those playing on portable devices by reducing the amount of energy needed to run the game.

Regarding the portable devices: Android release got a huge boost! Team added a special application called “fh2 toolset“. The application will run for players who are installing the APK for the first time. The app helps with installation of the game. It also contains save file manager if you want to delete certain saves from your device.

Based on demand team implemented scaled resolutions support. Now you can choose resolutions which have an integer scaling factor applied to the original resolution. This helps to scale up the game but maintain the resolution in an acceptable way, especially in windowed mode.

    Thanks for the news, I didn’t know fheroes2, tested it with my ancient backup of heroes2 (french version !), and it worked wonderfully ! It really feels like an amazing 1.0 version, contrary to a certain vcmi, which looks more like a pre-1.0 version. Amazing work for sure, the only thing I am not sure about is how good their AI is, it was ridiculous in the 1st misson of the campaign, but it was only the 1st mission so maybe it’s normal… but anyway thanks for the info, it’s nice to be able to play this in a native resolution, even though titans are less impressive in such a high resolution ! 😉
