OK im haveing troubles with the tutorial on the first page. I put in the ports tcp, udp the port triggers into my router the whole shabang and it still wont let me join a game on gamespy... not even a tcp/ip game. in fact when i go to join some ones game, a gmae shows up that says im hosting, even tho im not, but it wont let me join that anyway. that and when i type there ip its not found.

I did have a game going with someone on Hamachi if any of y'all herd of it but not on gamespy whats with that?


Oh and last night i tried setting my router to DMZ and all that did was make my internet not work so i had to reset my router and forward all the ports i used to have back on(warcraft 3 and several others).

Im getting extremly annoyed by this so i hope someone can help me out and relieve a little of my stress heh.

here are the port configurations on my router if i put it in wrong id like to know how to fix it. BTW the WC3 one works so...





did these pics show up?

Now Angelito, this problem is going to bend you down 3 times and tie you.

I have installed a weird version of HOMM (never trust when Polish guy says "Heroes III Complete").

The interface is from SoD (Main menu shows the sandro's face and those undeads)
The intro is from RoE (Catherine)
Creatures are unpatched, nothing helps I tried all patches.
I can't play through the internet (dunno what the problem is )
The files in DATA directory are:
[code]
H3_ab_bmp.lod
H3ab_spr.lod
H3abp_bm.lod
H3abd_sp.lod
H3bitmap.lod
H3pbitma.lod
H3psprit.lod
H3sprite.lod
H3ab_ahd.snd
Heroes3.snd
H3ab_ahd.vid
VIDEO.VID
[/code]

The files in main directory are:
[code]
MP3DEC.ASI
H3Blade.cnt
H3bmaped.cnt
H3camped.cnt
H3ccmped.cnt
H3maped.cnt
Heroes3.cnt
(SOME .DLL NOT IMPORTANT FILES)
...
clokspl.exe
GAMEUP.EXE
h3blade.exe
h3bmaped.exe
h3camped.exe
h3ccmped.exe
h3maped.exe
Heroes3.exe
mplaynow.exe
(.HLP files)
...
MPLAYNOW.INI
[/code]

This is weird. I don't have H3SOD.exe file and no patches seem to work. It seems that I have unpatched H3 platinum (if thats possible ). What should I do?

Very funny william, hahaha, man, LMAO completely dude what a refined taste of humor.

I have noticed a weird thing. When I run the AB upgrade 2.0 to 2.2, then AB works fine, but when I run SoD creatures are still unpatched. Please help me, I want to play all three heroes, not just RoE and AB.

@ Wicked_Joker
Gamespy has some own ports it needs to be forwarded. Here u can look up which of them are needed.

@ Supersonic
U have some more file than normal in Data directory. But i guess this has to do with the polish version. Coz all files with an additional "p" in its name are not "normal" (eg: H3abp_bm.lod)
You missing a "Bin" file in your DATA directory. This file doesn´t have the same name on all versions i recognized some months ago. In my directory, it is named: RMTH8URC.bin
There doesn´t exist a H3sod.exe file. Heroes 3 SoD is an ADD-On, which "overwrites" the old (RoE) H3.exe, while AB is an OWN version and therefor uses an OWN .exe file.
For me, it looks u are using a "cracked / pirated" version. The patch doesn´t work on the .exe file of a cracked version. All other files will be updated when u ran the patch though. All u need now is to find an upgraded "not normal" () H3.exe file.

No, my version is not cracked, I bought it for equivalent of 5 Euros () . What exactly do you mean by the correct version of H3.exe ? I tried downloading some from that russian page (dun remember), but it was exactly the same as mine heroes3.exe

HOMM 3 Complete doesn't have 2 different EXE-files for AB and SoD. They are both in same EXE-file. Trust me I know I have complete edition. And it also comes with all patches it doesn't have to be upgraded.

Coclusion: Angelito is correct you have bought a pirated version and the  Polish salesmen has cheated you.

Guys, I haven't bought a pirated version. It was a standard H3 platinum edition box (It looked like it). The CD was original, everything was fine, even the box was sealed by the corporation.
This is the box:


The blue frame is just the frame of the publisher, the thing inside is important. It basically shows all three logos (RoE, AB, SoD)

Now this is what I would call a mystery.I quess that you have tried re-install and different places for patches and auto-patch.?

The different intros mainframes and so on... are not strange (I have those too), but I have not yet seen a complete with those two different EXEs and I have seen 3 different complete editions.

Maybe you have all three games not complete and SoD has a flaw?

Can you play AB on-line as it patches correctly?

This might not help much but at least I tried to help, 'cause this is all I have

These are the ports "heroes3" needs:
2300 to 2400 UDP (trigger port = 6073), 28800 to 29100 TCP (trigger port = 6667), and 47624 TCP and UDP


i found a critical error in this info. heroes listens on TCP port 2300 as well... heroes 3 complete does v4.0 does, at least. so both TCP and UDP ports need to be forwarded for 2300 to 2400. until i corrected this, i was unable to host games behind my router.

download tcpview from http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/TcpView.html and you will see the details, or use netstat -a from the command prompt.

Did you apply all patches to the A.B. Expansion? You should. They're available at Fileplanet.com. Strategy kind, turn-based and, Heroes of Might and Magic Series.

Are you connected to the internet and, is your Firewall set to allow this kind of open port continuous multiplayer connections? It looks like you are but it seems not to allow you to make direct address hook-ups and, only to www.internet.servers such as GameSpy.com.

I also suggest that you continue upgrading your version of Heroes3-A.B. to S.o.D.+ more patches(1 or 2). Then, try to install and play W.o.G., so you can have the last version possible(2004)of 3.5.8f.

Good Luck at reconnecting!!

He obviously has a router, just take a look on his IP.
Looks like either your router settings don´t allow any other connections, or your game is not "multiplayer ready". This sometimes happens when your game is new installed. You need to watch the intro movie and then play some turns in singleplayer mode to have at least 1 autosave. After that, your multiplayer works. We had those problems sometimes on the zone.
Btw....Zone doesn´t support heroes3 anymore since january this year. Gamespy does.

Fixed my previous post, thx Angelito.

Seems to me that everyone goes and gets a damn router instead of the real thing: Cable modem for Hi-Speed Broadband Internet Connection.

The router can still do so but, you have to disconnect the other PCs from the router physically(unplug their cables to it). Then, in the Internet Connection function within the Control Panel, re-initiate a direct connection via the same router(now acting as regular cable modem).

Re-start HoMM3:AB and do the rest at connecting with your playing(joining)buddy. And, yes, you have to enter your name twice(exact same typings correctly) in order to achieve the Hosting of the desired map to play online multiplayer.

S.o.D.'s second patch has addressed that issue a few years back(upto version 3.2)and, once more within the Mod. of W.o.G.(version 3.5.8f).

Enjoy playing HoMM3:AB!!

What about hamachi?
Most of games i can play through it, but with HoMM3 my opponent cant see server or find it with ip adress. With hamachi, there should always be 1 IP, because in different games i have allways one and the same...

(sry if this is written somwhere in this 11page topic)

ok here's what I've done. I've opened the ports that you said to open and I can join games fine. But people still can't join my hosted games. I have a Gnet Broadband Router and have already tried DMZ (once, not sure if the user could join games in the first place).

Any suggestions?

Then try through TCP/IP and see if it works. That way u know if Gamespy is the troublemaker, or your router is.
