Just found out something WOG lovers are gonna like a lot i think. After I renamed h3wog.exe_HD.exe to heroes3.exe. I then downloaded AlexSpl's XXL.zip and followed his instructions, patched the heroes3.exe, did the rest of the xxl install without change. And now I can run WOG in high resolution with RMG for XXL maps and a working MINIMAP You gotta love it!!!

I could, but it'll be using 1600x900 resolution. Its the resolution I use. Not that many people can run this resolution or want to. Just follow my instructions in my previous post and u'll be alright. I don't think there's anything difficult or confusing to do it yourself. Oh and by the way I drink Heineken

Are you sure about this? As I know, xxl patch simply should break your h3wog.exe and if you use it over baratorch's patch you should face incorrect minimap frames...

Guys I just tried it on my work computer and it works too. I don't think u even gave it a try. It's for real. Here this is a patched HD with XXL using 1024x768 resolution heroes3_HD_XXL.exe U can create a 252x252 random map when u select XL size. Save and Load works too. Haha I surprised u didn't I I didn't even believe at first.

OK so to clear things up baratorch and Alexspl. U get a file called h3wog.exe_HD.exe after u run Heroes3HDsetup.exe. After that rename h3wog.exe_HD.exe to heroes3.exe. From here on download the XXL.zip and follow the intructions inside. At the end u get a file called heroes3_XXL.exe. This is it. U're done. Now u have the HD mod and the XXL patch all in one and working.

unbelievable but it works at least installed over pure WoG 3.58f
though I don't know how stable such a hybrid is

just tried to WoGify 252 x 252 map... works fine although it takes time to WoGify such a big map.

1. Install WoG 3.58f (h3wog.exe must be of 3440640 bytes)
2. Rename h3wog.exe to heroes3.exe (backup your original heroes3.exe if needed)
3. Copy XXL.exe and diffs.txt to your H3 folder and run XXL.exe
4. Then run heroes3_XXL.exe (must be of the same size as h3wog.exe)

you can install baratorch's patch as well before applying xxl patch.

Oh... be accurate renaming h3wog.exe_HD.exe to heroes3.exe under Windows Explorer try to avoid such cases as heroes3.exe.exe etc.

Ok ... I did exactly as u instructed but i still cant get it to work. I use total commander so i dont get those hidden fileextensionissues.

I got a Sod based installation . dont know if that matters .

Cant you just please reupload a prepatched exe?

EDIT : ok nevermind , I managed to get the first link to work. Your prepatched exe works like a charm.

Heres an ingame pic h3wog1024x768_XXL.JPG. Minimap's fine the only thing about it thats not ok is the pink border line. Its supposed to represent your worldmap window but in this case on a xxl map its way bigger. It'll be really nice if u could somehow fix it AlexSpl

I fixed it long ago. For that purpose you need modified RADAR.DEF that is in the xxl installation zip. But it seems baratorch uses somewhat hook that overloads basic mechanism of drawing those pink rectangles. I'm not sure if his patch is capable to recognize map sizes larger than 144 and draw correct frames.

Can't play RMG with the XXL executable the message "could not create a random map that fits it's current choices" appears., only islands maps can be created. Someone has a working rmg.txt?

And back to the HD patch, the new folder thing works, but the program still looks for the HD def files inside the lods after I run H3wUpd.exe in WOG, I'm receiving the same def file missing messages, maybe I need to reinstall the game??
