Heroes 4 Patch - Some People LIVE outside US!!!!

I'm going nuts about this stupid patch policy of 3do.

I'm in australia and I certainly don't have US version!

PEOPLE LIVE IN OTHER PLACES TOO!

Since the only difference is the heroes4.exe file which is not too big packed (I just tried.. comes down to less then 2 megs), I want it now and I DON't want to wait for OTHER vesion patches fo AGES. I've been waiting for this game for too long, so now I have to wait for this patch (5 weeks already!) then I have to wait for MP patch, then the AI patch... then.......

Now, will someone who has the Heroes4.exe 1.0 US, pack it (RAR od ACE) and send it to my email: merove@softhome.net

Thank you.

That doesn't work.  Once you patch it you will then need the Heroes 4 US cd to play the game and your old cd will no longer work.

Hmmm, you might be right there, but I want to try anyway.

Better then this anyway. Non patched game is unplayable.

Arghhhhh! */hates 3do even more/*

I'm posting "It doesn't work" because it doesn't.  I've already helped someone in your situation try that, and that's what happens.  Unless you own the US CD the patch won't do you any good.  And if you have the US CD then you wouldn't be asking for that file, so you're outta luck.

Ok, thanx.

I 'm just reading this on another board:

http://www.forumplanet.com/strategyplanet/homm/topic.asp?fid=3653&tid=633941

This guy has found an no-cd patch so if applied on an updated version it does not ask for a cd at all?

Wonder if this could be done toany verson then?

When its patched and with that no-cd patch too, then you don't need a cd so the game doesn't care which version you have?

Well it looks like you are correct, thanks for bringing that up to my attention.  I'll add back the unpatched US 1.0 heroes4.exe to my ftp for those that would like to try the patch.  The process of freshly installing Heroes 4, then replacing it with the US .exe, then patching it to 1.2, then using the other patch works as far as I can tell.  You can find the link in the thread "HoMM 1.2 Patch is Out" thread or something like that.  Enjoy.

They shouldn't make patches for US only, what they should do is make a patch for 'english version' only, which should cover overseas copies that run in english. There wouldn't need to be any difference between the two versions (the game is not violent so censorship doesn't apply).

I don't even know if the US version will be compatible with the Aust or UK version in multiplayer when it is available.

Ok, I just downloaded the US version exe 1.0 and patched the game with 1.0->1.2 patch and then with nocd patch.

I just tried it and it works like a charm!!!

@ a100pieces, big thanx for the file!

@ Jenova, I agree with you, hope some people from 3do are reading this. Now I think this is even more stupid, as the fact is, the only difference between versions is the exe file?

Couldn't they just put languages in some .ini file or something like that?

It's interesting isn't it? I'm an Australian, Our goverment  is collapsing (at least Natasha Spot Destroyer is having difficulties), issues with refugees, murder murder murder (I'm in Adelaide) So I try to take solace in a simple game of heroes 4. It eats up the virtual memory, bug bug bug bug AND I CAN'T YET GET THE PATCH! Sorry, frustrated person with a small hardrive, thankyou to all who read my babble.

Er ... your post is dated August 2nd; the non-US patch has been out for a long time (came out with 1.3).  You can get a copy from fileplanet via Celestial Heavens, from MapHaven at http://heroes.mycomport.com/maphaven/heroes4/bugs/patches.html, or (recommended) direct from 3D0 at http://www.3do.com/support/pc_support.shtml?PAGE=pc/heroes/h4/h4_nonUS_patch.htm

Hope that helps.

(And I hope the next patch is out soon!  Gee, it's pretty late already!)

<i> some people live outside the US</i>...

3do's policy changes a lot on the other side of the ocean. Europeans have the final chronicles, while North-Americans just got them. On the other hand there was the patch 1.2, only american version. Add to it that Heroes 3 complete isn't available in Europe. 3do is planning to release a 'full'package of HOMM1,2,3+Exp. in Europe. North America? maybe, in a few months. And, finally, the free downloadable chronicles were only for US users.

Seemingly 3do leadership suffers from schizophrenzy or from xenofoby. Either way, there is an unexplainable difference between the 2 continents. And don't blame the language. English is English, and no one is scared because of  a minor spelling difference.

Good day


Have you patch your H4 to v1.3 yet? I think we are all facing some comman problems with the patch which is only US and it can patch those with no cd patch. I still haven't found a patch for v1.0->v1.3 yet, those downloaded from 3do are hopeless. Hope you can help me out.

Thank you.
