Add Campaign Heroes to Multiplayer?

Hi everyone! Long time reader, first time poster here!

I've been an HOMM player for more than 10 years now, mainly playing HOMM3 because it's the best in the west!

In fact, my friend and me have been playing in HOMM3 multiplayer games against each others for a long time, we need something new!

S o I was wondering if there's a way to add campaign heroes (Dracon, etc.) to the multiplayer games?

Thanks!

Join online community at Gamespy 20-40 players online each day 15.00-20.00 GMT.
Normally, if someone plays vs 1 opponent - he can't get all tactics, strategies, so (normally) he is easily defeated by experienced online players.

Yes. However, if you wish something new and better in HoMM3 - just install HoMM 3TE version

We'll give the Gamespy community another try, but we got our butts whooped many times a couple years ago...

As for your patch, I will gladly give it a shot, but does it allow Campaign Heroes? If not, can you tell me how to do it? Please?

Skill is gained from experience. I would prefer to lose 10 times to skilled player than win 10 times over a noob. Best fun is to win at strong player

Currently it doesn't allow campaign heroes, however i think it's a good idea to add few new heroes into the game. Perhaps developers will add into new revision

The only way I know how to enter campaign heroes in multiplayer works like this:

You create a random map through your MAP EDITOR (and not through the random map generator in the game!). In the map editor, you ´have the possibility to setup which heroes may occur in the game. Also which 2ndary skills and which spells. Also size of the map, and if u want 1 or 2 level map. You can NOT setup your starting towns though!
Let the editor create the map now. In the map options, you give it a name, define 2 human players and save the map in your MAP folder.

Now you start a new game, multiplayer, hotseat (or whateveer connection u use), and then chose the map u just created from the list. if u r lucky, u will find the campaign heores on the map now. In a prison, from tavern, or because the comp has it and attacks you

Thanks for the explanation on this Angelito,
Would you by any chance know if a co-op campaign exist/is in project?
I've tried looking here on the forum for more info but couldn't find any (maybe I'm not looking correctly)

Ps: thanks for the awesome thread about online gaming problems (which made it possible for me to play from abroad with my childhood friends)

Probably there are no co-op campaigns (at least that I know of) for H3. Howevern, with my mod you can play the Winds of War H4 campaigns with a multiplayer free-for-all ending.

(link should be in my signature, but for some reason not appearing)
