Now that IS curious, because the game has always kept going for me when the program isn't in focus.  Sometimes games have a pause option when you alt-tab but I don't see one in Heroes...  I've no idea why it would pause...

I thought if you make sure "Stay Active" is ticked while in windowed mode that the computer will progress the AI turns.

I also support Icharus getting a qp for posting a hard-to-find fix

I don't suppose anyone has any utilities that allow background processing? I'd like to Alt+tab out while waiting for it to process AI turns but there's no check-box to enable or disable background processing. Are there any settings in an .INI (or other) files that people are aware of?

I guess you should try change this settings (setvar app_always_active = 1/0) in user_a2.cfg or add in autoexec.cfg

Oh what the hell? I don't know how I didn't notice that when I checked the options a couple of times!
Well duh, that's exactly the sort of thing I expected!! :Ž
Thanks! >_<

Not so curious after, fulano, teehee!

Thanks, I could mess around with that out of curiosity, but obviously it turns out that won't be necessary!

I recently reinstalled Homam V complete, v 3.1 on my new laptop, and I have a bad camera bug. Every time I run a new game, I start with my camera fully tilted flat, and neither ctrl+arrow keys, or the right mouse button is working! Simply put, camera control is not working at all. Other than that, the game works fine and keys work too. I have Windows 8.1. Anyone knows how to fix this, or what is likely to be the cause?

That's a curious problem.

As far as I know, there were to files that contained info on the camera, one called HMM5profilesautoexec.cfg and one called autoexec_a2.cfg.

But I thought Nival hard coded the camera settings in the latest versions of the game to keep people from editing those settings. Maybe something is messed up with those files?

Just trying to guess and offer some help.

Thanks for the reply. I looked and searched for the 2 files you mentioned, but didn't found either. I also contacted Ubi soft support about this, and only got response that Homam V does not support either notebooks or windows 8..
to mention my problem again: I start with camera on closest zoom to ground, tilted into the map panorama, which is unplayable and also very laggy. No camera controls works, except I can move the screen with the RMB around the minimap. I can't zoom out or tilt the camera at all. Rest of the game works fine.

My guess is it must be related to the damn windows 8, the game worked like a charm on my previous windows 7 pc. Anyone has experience running this game on win 8?

Windows 8 has plenty of weird issues with, basically, everything that is gaming.

First of all: Is your previous windows 7 PC a Desktop machine or, just another, laptop? Because, MMH5 of any edition and version is not made for miniaturized chipsets. As it was mentioned countless number of times since Spring of 2006(8 years ago).

Second: Did you know that, Win 8.1 is not just an update-upgrade of the previous version-edition of Windows? Because, it is the equivalent of Win. 98 to Win. 98-Second Edition(SE)when it comes to major improvements in both computing uses and, O.S. friendliness to the user. Then, knowing this, I simply did the next step in the ladder of logical implementations. Which was, to download my free copy of Win. 8.1 Pro. Edition straight from the Microsoft.com's downloads page.

Third: Win. 8.1 Full Edition has been bought at an affordable price at my closest retail store for a much quicker installation on a totally new HDD of a self assembled 6 core Desktop PC. Re-installed MMH5:TotE 3.0 and applied the auto. chosen update-patch to bring the game to its 3.1 version. Re-copy and re-pasted all of my very useful .H5u files in its UserMods folder and, voilą. Launched it and, worked as it is expected to work before having to re-adjust the proper settings for video resolution to the one I get to use all the time on my Desktop window.

Fourth: Forcing the HoMM Classic View of the Camera and, choosing Dynamic battles is, quite recommended by myself. Try using High Quality graphics setting. Moreover, the latest AMD CCC package that includes the latest driver for your video chipset is officially at 14.4(driver should be in the late January of 2014). Direct X SDK(June 2010) must be installed separately to the main folder of Program Files (x86) before installing the game. Which in turn will self configure itself while the installation process happens(installs its own old files of Direct X 9.0c).

Good Luck at running HHM5:TotE 3.1!

I also have a strange issue with screen. I have Windows 7 Home Premium. I have just installed ToE and set the resolution to highest possible (1366x768) and there is a strange bug causing all interface elements and introductory screenshots for maps to be the same size as they would be for lower resolutions. This problem has never occured with basic HoMM 5 and HoF, everything looked normal.

@Pawek 13: Go to the main page's Options menu and, enter these.

Screen Resolution @ 1280x768 = No matter how big is the Display Screen.

Image Quality @ Normal

Check the Full Screen box.

Camera Mode @ Classic HOMM view.

Gamma Correction Slider at middle position

Anti-Aliasing @ OFF

Anisotropic Filtering @ OFF

Check the Use HW cursor

Check the Fly by Town Camera if you like it to do so. Do not recommend on LapTops of any kind. Cause=miniaturized chipset can not handle the stress of such complex video processing.

Audio Options: Slide both Music and Sound FX bars to your preferences. I, personally prefer the music a little lower than the effects sounds. Battle arena is affected the most by these two.

I, myself, use the full edition of Win. 8.1 and, it still works like a charm. Do not skip your chance at modding your game with plenty of useful mods from the Modders' Forum. It will enhance your gaming experience a lot. Even the version of the main program of the game will be increased. So, it turns out that the game became upgraded in version also, as the result of including all of these .H5u files into your UserMods Folder.

Here is a mere sample of what I get to use to seriously enhance my game:
background.h5u
ActivateMapScriptsOnDefaultMaps.h5u
ReanimationMod.h5u
rea_config1.h5u
rea_config2.h5u
rea_config3.h5u
New_Arenas_plus.h5u
Maps_ToE_UnlockAllHeroes.h5u

I am sure that there are some .pak files that goes in your Data folder in order to make some of these packaged game update mods work properly.

Enjoy your properly configured game, from now on!

I'm stuck on 'To Honor Our Fathers M4: Mother Earth's Wisdom' campaign scenario from TotE

After going through the whole map. Alastor is not showing up right at the end.
The game just freezes. (but can still click buttons or close the game)

See the save file please.
https://app.box.com/s/3s6vmoyir8y3gduuiyp3lv4bhas09l3o

Does anyone know a fix for this bug?

If you manage to spawn Alastor, please share the save file.

Not a real solution, but if you are permanently stuck you can always continue to next mission with console command: @Win();

I've been looking for help on various places, hopefully someone here knows what is going on.

The mod that allows you to play the original campaigns in ToTE;

http://www.heroes-fr.com/pages_en/original_campaigns.php

I've followed all the steps and put the files in the UserMODs folder, but when I click on the game to play, it wont start. No error message or anything, it simply doesn't want to start. If I remove the files from the mods folder it works again just fine, but when they're in the folder the game wont start up. Anyone else had this problem/ is there a fix?

I have Tribes of the East on Steam, patch 3.1, if that makes a difference.

Any help appreciated.

After adding the files
All_campaigns.data.h5u
and
All_campaigns.texts_en.h5u

in ..>Steam>steamapps>common>Heroes of Might and Magic 5 Tribes of the East>UserMODs>

I was able to open the game and see all campaigns in the menu.
Not sure why it does not work for you.

Maybe the files were not downloaded properly.
One should be 23.1 MB, while the other 1.0 MB.

Here are CRC32 hashes if you need them
All_campaigns.data.h5u 0D0B3327
All_campaigns.texts_en.h5u 97A4F3E4

Good luck.

As for my previous issue where the game would get stuck.
I enabled the console and this is the message I get:

(Script) ERROR: Hero "Efion" is not belong to any player

Any way to fix this?

Otherwise, the @Win(); command works (as long as you have completed the previous maps in the campaign).


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


And another issue (can't make a third post).

On the 5th scenario of the original sylvan campaign, I am getting a strange graphical bug.
From what I've seen from a gameplay session on youtube, it is supposed to be nighttime in this scenario. In my game however it is bright daylight.
And the real problem is that during combat the whole screen gets a green tint.

Here is the link to the youtube video and my screenshots showing the issue.

No, I have a clean steam install of the game. Version 1.6.
I even deleted the settings folder in my documents.

Could you please confirm that it is nighttime in your game?

Here is a save file if you don't have that scenario unlocked.
