Ok, now we know that you can join other games, did it work all the time or just sometimes? Could your friend join those games?

It think now that the problem is somehow related to your friend's computer or router. Could you ask him to do all the steps that you have done?

Have you been able to join HOMM3 games in Tunngle like before? Can you join HOMM4 games there?

Because if you can join other peoples games or host games that other people can join, I bet the problem is with your friends system. Could be a router that works inconsistently.

Now both Heroes 3 and heroes 4 suddenly worked again.
My friend had a triangle symbol on me in hamachi and he checked "change setting for networkadapter" and saw that the hamachi adapter suddenly wasnt there, so he reinstalled and we made a new network and it worked.

Yeah we have tried tunngle and i could join others but not him.

But hamachi is more stable,better and easier so since its working now its all good

Thanks for the help
But what you told me didnt solve the problem but after some random tries i did this

I have solved this problem now, playing heroes 4 workes.
I also got heroes 3 to work, i first tried to find the game my friend hosted but without sucess, after that i tried something random, when we play heroes 4 you have to connect via the "tcp\ip direct" and enter his hamachi ip adress to find the game, and then i thought about trying to do the same with Heroes 3 just via heroes 4.

So what i do is first i go into heroes 3 -> multiplayer->tcp\ip
And then i go into heroes 4->multiplayer->join game->tcp\ip direct and then enter his hamachi ip adress (which is saved there) and click "ok", and after that i go into heroes 3 and search after the same hamachi ip adress via "search for a game" and then i find the game.
I have tried this many times and it always works as long as i go into heroes 4 first and do what i said above.

Hope this helps others with the same issue

So, maybe I should try harder. Having this workaround is nice for you but I'd still like solve this problem for good.

The workaround you described sounds like your friend has a firewall issue. Either in the router or Windows firewall. Launching HOMM4 could switch on some trigger port functionality which would effectively open those ports which are normally closed preventing the game from working. Based on quick googling HOMM3 and HOMM4 share the 2300-2400 port range.

I'd like to know which router model your friend is using. Also a screenshot of the router's firewall rules would be nice. (You have made the rules, haven't you?)

Also your friend could try to put his/her computer on DMZ zone (no firewall) in the router firewall settings and turn off the windows firewall (only for short period of testing of course). This way you could find you whether it is router firewall that is causing the problems.

Hey Im new to the forum and cant make a topic yet, so im asking if anyone could help me get multiplayer working on HOMM2 gold. We've only gotten as far as the 3 of us were in the character and map selection screen, then as we start the game i get the "error sending data" problem. Please pm me how to workaround this issue.

AND are there any ports for HOMM2GOLD that need to be forwarded? i did research and couldn't find any sites that shows which ports should be forwarded.

Edit: We are using the GOG version of HOMM2GOLD

we tried:
compat mode: XP service pack 2

Using VPN for online HoMM

I'd like to tell you about our new way of playing HoMM 3 online. We are very excited about this. We have tried many different alternative configuration but finally this one worked.

We don't use any service like Hamachi, Tunngle or Gameranger. We are very tired of their connection problems, ads and other annoyance. Instead we managed to find how to use OpenVPN for this purpose.

OpenVPN is an open source VPN software. Anyone can use it free of charge.

Moreover, I am using Mac and my friend is using Arch Linux. But we can play Heroes 3 without any issue.

For our configuration details here I'll quote my answer to my own question here. I hope it will be useful for some of you.

Quote:

We have finally solved this issue after days passed by looking for solution, researching and trying our alternatives. Finally it works now. I will give details about our working configuration. Actually it is simple.

We both use official OpenVPN clients to connect to VPN. This is necessary. Windows let you connect directly to VPN without using third party software, but don't use that for this purpose. Use OpenVPN clients.

Games and OpenVPN clients run on Windows XP SP3 as guest OS in VirtualBox. Host computers' OS are Mac OS X 10.9 and Arch Linux.

Arch Linux uses default network settings in VirtualBox. However Mac's Virtualbox needed to be configured: PCnet-FAST III adapter should be selected in NAT mode to let the guest OS connect to the internet.

Now we can play these games without using any third party software. It is really great. I know many people are looking for a way to have a smooth gaming experience over internet with old games. Maybe this can be an alternative solution for gamers like us.



To use OpenVPN clients you have two options. One of the players can act as OpenVPN server and other one will connect him. Or you will need a separate VPN server which is OpenVPN compatible or runs OpenVPN. Both players should connect to the server. We use this option. I have a Softether VPN server, which is another open source and OpenVPN compatible VPN software, on a VPS rented on digitalocean.com. They have simple tutorials about how to do that.

If you have any question you can possibly find me here or on irc.freenode.net ##homm.

Note
We have a Windows crash problem on HoMM 2 Gold (error sending data error) but that is another topic. We can successfully establish connection throughout the steps to map selection screen.

I so wish someone can save me because I'm going crazy.

I'm trying to play Heroes 3 HotA (But equally true for Complete etc) in matches of more than 2 players, such as 3-5 player free for alls. However, whenever the player hosting is eliminated, the game will end for everyone. I use hamachi and tcp/ip to play it online.

Is there any way around this, or am I stuck playing 1v1?...

Figured it out... It's due to HD+. Can be played with HD mod but not with HD+ settings due to the disconnect feature ensuring that a game cannot be carried on vs disconnected opponents - which kicks in also when a player is eliminated.

I'd like to tell you about our new way of playing HoMM 3 online. We are very excited about this. We have tried many different alternative configuration but finally this one worked.

We don't use any service like Hamachi, Tunngle or Gameranger. We are very tired of their connection problems, ads and other annoyance. Instead we managed to find how to use OpenVPN for this purpose.

If you have any question you can possibly find me here or on irc.freenode.net ##homm.




Trying to make this work now after having tried everything else with friend who has some kinda nat router issue with everything (we think).
However I only took one very basic programming course at my University and someone should really write a proper newbie's guide to how to make this work. Also I don't want to pay for something so few will use so I'm trying to be the server and let my friend connect.

I tried following the basic example:

http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/miscellaneous/78-static-key-mini-howto.html

creating a key, which I put in the config folder, also putting server and client there (in case both were needed).

Now I dont have a clue what to do, trying to connect to server (my public ip) and client, all fails.

Hello,

I post here because I'm French and French forum are dead ^^ (sorry for my bad english).

I would like to play HOTA online but I can't. I load Gameranger (software) but it diidn't work. I think gameranger accept only "Legal" game because we can't chose the launcher of HOTA to start a multiplayer game in oline. So I try to rename the HOTA laucher in Heroes3.exe and it work !!! But i want to try it with HD mod and the problem is that didn't work !!!

Then I load Tuungle but when I want to create a profile, there is a message that explain I can't creat a profile.

So I want to know if someone know if it is possible to play with HD mod HOTA online and How ?

Thanks
