That's a fan-made patch that re-balanced the units/spells/buildings by altering the LBX files.
For instance, magically summoned creatures were not just "meh" but you got some firepower for your trouble.

All download sites have since gone the way of the dodo.

 

I found the 1.4 patch on Petrell's Domain. That's a hack to the executeables to fix a lot of UI and AI bugs in those.

 

I'm still looking for MoM 2.0 but so far without success.

Like I said in the first post.

Completely different concepts and approaches. They might even be compatible.

Install DosBox in order to get a shell where old games will work, either 32 or 64 bits.

 

¿Is it better to use patch 1.40f or 2.0? Both modify some files simultaneously and I didn't mix them as it seemed like a corrupt choice.

I was playing with these a couple months ago, I would recommend 1.40f.  2.0 is a completely different fan patch by a different person and is mostly just rebalancing.   I liked the changes in 1.40f much better, and it also had some bug fixes and new options.

 

You used to be able to find these at DragonsWord.com  but it seems like the site went down sometime in August??  Might want to keep an eye on that site in the future in the hopes that the host will bring it back up sometime.  They were working on some rebalancing and bug fixes, but maybe the host didn't have time or money to keep the site up?

Thanks, only dl of 2.0 I've been able to find as well.   Found an emulator that works well other than dosbox, just seems simpler.  Aeon056, or google just aeon emulator.

May I ask for some help please?  I haven't played MoM in MANY MANY years.  Have no idea where my old floppy with MoM is.    MY PC doesn't take floppys, anyway.  How can i get MoM "base/ original"  game, and how do i modify my PC (Wine XP) so it will run MoM?  I just download several patches for MoM.  Hoping... thank you all....

If they show up in your account already, you won't be charged for them.  I think they gave away a few games awhile back - under a steel sky also shows up for me and I did not purchase it.

Kinda late reply, but for anyone's information, there are three games that are completely free to download on GoG, beneath a steel sky, lure of the temptress, and teen agent.  All three are classic adventure games.  GoG too offered another free game recently, Jagged Alliance Deadly Games.  I suppose ElanaAhova figured how to run master of magic and is having fun playing it by now. I tried playing Master of Magic, but couldn't get to play it.  I'm a noob.
