I am lost, placed everything as told, but crash. I emailed Baratorch for a possible ERA XXL bin, but he is very busy, no answer


@EDIT: I found where was the problem: xxl.bin in plugins. I have to deactivate it before using your patch. Probably they conflict. Now ok!

Alex, which ERA executable you uploaded? 1.??

Thank you very much, all okay now. Simple question: when releasing package of map + custom lod, what do I have to add except the patched executable in? New radar def and diffs.txt? is there anything else I must think of? For instance, I still have the regular radar.def and no problems, do we need new?

I just found out that applying patchmaps.exe to ERA editor is perfectly straightforward and gives acess to both xxl maps and new features of editor

You should have tried the editor before applying the patch, because it is already patched and opens all sizes of maps. Now is probably messed.

IMO, XXL issue was solved with the first custom map released, and this was the biggest part of work. Now everyone can use codes from and be able to design more functional XXL maps, if he has the time and will.

does the actual patch allow you to generate and play randoms on WOG? or are there still issues with making that work?

Download both h3wog_XXL.zip and __XXL_patch.zip from here. Unzip files into a temporary folder. Then just copy: h3wog_XXL.exe to your H3 game folder, rmg.txt to your H3\DATA folder. Run the game and enjoy!

Hello everyone! First, I would like to thank you for this amazing patch. It's fantastic! Thank you Alex!
I almost read the whole topic, because I didn't want to bother you with stupid questions. I was able to install patch and make it work. So, if somebody doesn't believe, it's working.. just read few pages and it's gonna work for 100%.
Ok, but I would like to ask I noticed that salamander was trying to make his own XXL map and it wasn't possible because of stability of the game. I saw some link for XXLmap editor but I wasn't able to download it even with "save as" metod. could someone tell me where to find it? And is it working? Let's say, for smaller changes in random map? Thanks

Hello everyone Thanks again for this amazing patch. I wanted to contribute somehow, so I created a XXL map of Tolkien's world The Middle-earth. It took hours and hours to create it, so I want to spread it, maybe somebody will like it too. here is link: http://uloz.to/xxb4DXW4/thelordoftheringsv10-h3m
enjoy
