I've been away for sometime now, got a new laptop and downloaded VCMI.  It's not running and an error is prompted.  I can't remember how I did this last time, can it run with Gog version of heroes complete or disk? I have both.  

Thank you

Not sure about the latter, but I've never had problems with GOG's Complete edition. First, install it and then install VCMI in the same folder.

Ok so i've downloaded it to the folder here:

Windows (C: ) > GOG Games > HoMM 3 Complete > vcmi_099

I tried the VCMI_launcher.exe and the same error ensued. Sorry but I'm more of a gamer not a programmer, so this stuff gets me stumped easily.

@fanofheroes Install VCMI IN THE SAME FOLDER. Not in HoMM 3 Complete > vcmi_099, in HoMM 3 Complete. The launcher and client should be in the same place as Heroes3.exe.

And next time post a screenshot of the error message. It will be easier to determine the cause of error.

Thank you

I uploaded the contents of the VCMI folder into Heroes 3 complete folder and it runs with no errors.  

My next obstacle is that it's in Russian and the resolution is 800x600.  I uploaded an image, there's a Wog Russian translation mod, is that what I need to activate? If so, when i update it, it doesn't work.

If you don't want VCMI to be Russian, the best thing would be to disable it. You may also want to read this thread: https://forum.vcmi.eu/t/language/916 . If I see correctly, it contains the solution to your problem.

Resolution and other options are in the settings tab. You access it by clicking the tools icon in the launcher.

Hello,

I'm having an issue when using VCMI - every time I try to play any map (random or scenario) the game crashes. I tried disabling almost everything and still no success.

I downloaded and installed the latest .exe from the "VCMI Project BuildsPR456Windows" and had "VCMI crashed" error. Then I downloaded VCMI v0.99 from the first post, overwrote everything in the game folder and had the same error again.

The game crashes right before creating/loading any map with any of the following mods enabled or disabled. The "WOG Options" button doesn't do anything when clicked. Also, I cannot change my name when choosing a color.

So what am I doing wrong?

PS: the "Man at arms - Castle" mod cannot be installed and crashes the launcher.

Latest VCMI builds are available here: https://builds.vcmi.download/branch/develop/Windows/

Please, install it over 0.99 version and don't click Update button in the launcher. Latest mods version are available here:
https://wiki.vcmi.eu/Mod_list

Mods version downloadable via launcher are old and causes crashes.

Some of the mods from the wiki don't have a download link. Should I get them from the launcher or just not at all?

I don't remember which mod from launcher causes crashes and which is fine. There are many mods from site, so better check them first.
And some mods are incompatible with each other so it's good not to enable many mods at once.

Thank you! Now the game works and random maps are generated
Is it normal that the Wog Options button does nothing? If not, could you please direct me to the latest WoG build (if the one from the VCMI launcher is wrong)?

Thanks again!

WoG's VCMI port is very limited. Only WoG monsters, few WoG artifacts, Commanders, Banks, and Stack Experience is ported. No scripts. So, there's no WoG Options, this button is non-clickable. You can download WoG mod via launcher but you must uncheck WoG's russian translation (WoG submod) in launcher before playing.

So I installed the unzipped folder to:

Windows (C: ) > GOG Games > HoMM 3 Complete

correct?

(thank you for the resolution solution!)

now the main menu opens up, and I'm able to select parameters for a game, but when I press the button "begin" for the scenario to start, the games closes abruptly.  It took me a couple of attempts to screenshot the error that is produced, because the screen closes, but this is what it says:

when I go to server_log.txt ^^  it is blank

Two questions:

(1)Is it possible to generate random map using VCMI client?  The random map generation always fails.

(2)Is it possible to generate XXL map (252X252)?

Thanks.
