If we had a developer using win98, VCMI would run on this platform. I think that win98 is not very popular among C++ developers so probably VCMI will never support it.

You guys rock!! My entire family and relatives play WoG .. we are at least 10 people with different backgrounds aged 7-67. When we meet for family get-togethers, there is always a WoG game or two running .. we look very much forward to help out testing your excellent work!! Way to go!!
This looks like a really great project. It will be really great to be able to play on a map with 12 different alignments (and I really hope one of those will be an alignment of Sea creatures :p). I'm not sure if I'll have time to help with the testing in the near future, but good luck with the project!
Would it run under wine in *nix systems as easily as original heroes?
Would it be open-source?
It runs natively on Linux withot wine, & it is OpenSource (GNU GPL)!

Keeping it closed source is selfish and won't benefit the comunity in any significant way more than WoG can. I encourage the h3 players community to distrust these people and boycott VCMI until they open up the source and show that they really care about keeping H3 alive.
I agree w/ you absolutely!
Nothing goods comes from the slave software (people of the Earth will get few from it). We need not any another HMM3 just developped by some code selfmining little group. They just go the way of other stupid fanatic coders dreaming they can get some money on their work. But this is illusiion no matter what they say/dream/do. Fututre always will be after will of all (whole Earth) the people and their determination on what to do, rather than a small quantity of people. VCMI is just another project that today is and tomorrow abandoned. While the free project will live forever as new generaions of Earth will carry it on. It the destiny: look on Linux for example.
And i guess free people (programmers, designers, players) have to gather together and write their own free code for HMM3+WoG altogether to make this great game free (well working) and even greater (more new features)!
May be you could open sources? There many licences for that, why not?
Because just idiots! Let's forsake about 'em.
There are more extended brain people attempts to do the same.
I here also came thinking it is free software, now i leave the dreamers.
MOD EDIT: Merged two ranting posts. @Sthu.Deus: When visiting the website/forum of a project you're not familiar with, it's basic courtesy to take 5-10 minutes to read either the homepage, or a fairly recent project description post, so that you're a bit up to date with where the project stands. At the time of your posts, our homepage says in 5 different places that we're open source. Any discussion on this subject in the past couple of years, in various forum topics, is mentioning the same. So finding a 5-year old discussion and reacting on that, looks pretty much like out of place trolling.
