HOMM3: Complete - Multiplayer custom map problem

Hello! I have a problem, I don't know what is going on but when I try to play over TCP/IP with a friend on any map that's been edited, for some reason the additional players (everyone but the host) is unable to choose a hero to start with. Any ideas?

Are u sure you didn't forget to enable "human player" for the other colors in map editor? (map specifications, properties of other colors)
If you forgot that, other colors will be played by computer player.

Yes it's enabled. Here's the thing, actually: I just did some edits on one of the pre-existing maps, the Reclamation (Allied) map. I only added a few new items on the map and I didn't alter anything else in the map specs. The original map lets all players choose their hero, but the edited one does not. Am I missing something?

Yeah, absolutely. Sent it right over to the other guy when I was done.

It's odd because it works fine in the original, everyone can choose the hero and what not, but only the edited map for some reason it is disabled for the other players. The host can still choose a hero, but not anyone else. We even switched turns hosting the game to see if that was true, and it is.

By choosing heroes I imply mean being able to select which hero you start with, all players can play on the map, but we still want to be able to pick which hero we start with.

Alright, this is it:

It's just the Reclamation (Allied) map that I edited to add random starting artifacts and a well outside of each castle.

I've chosen the map on hotseat mode with 3 human players, and didn't had any problems chosing the townsand heroes for all 3 human players:





I will try to setup a game on that map on Gamespy today to see if it works through tcp/ip swell.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I am revisiting trying to play this game with some friends and I haven't really found a solution to the problem yet. Is there no chance at all for this to be fixed, or at least identified?

Do brand new maps from scratch work?

Hello,

Sorry for my english and for this up of space.

I had the exact same problem that the author and I solved by checking that my friend and I had the same version of the game.

And actually we had not exactly the same and with an update (or if the update does not work, copy and paste the latest version replacing the oldest), we had exactly the same version of the game and second player (who do not host) was able to select his hero again.
