Unzip __XXL_heroes3.exe to where your original game is. Then put rmg.txt (not from the archive) to DATA folder. To save the archive right click on the link and choose 'Save As...'


But isn't that what I already have been doing, or maybe I misunderstand the term, archive?

Would it be to much to ask for screenshots to demonstrate?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my nooobiness.

Does this still work??
Because I've followed the steps and now the game doesn't even show the random map button anymore when I start it through the __XXL_heroes3 executable.

Edit: Hmm I think I know what was wrong, this doesn't work with homm3 complete does it?

I doubt it since it's modified TSOD executable.

So you are making a homm complete version too? As far as I know homm3 complete is pretty much the same as sod with the random map generator right? Or am I way off here?

XXL patch v1.0 for Heroes of Might and Magic III The Shadow of Death v3.2 EN/RU

1. Extract __XXL_heroes3.exe to your %HoMM% folder
2. Extract patch.bat, h3sprite.exe, RADAR.DEF, rmg.txt to %HoMM%\DATA folder
3. Run patch.bat
4. Run __XXL_heroes3.exe

The original h3sprite.lod will be placed to __backup folder, so you can restore it later if needed.

After patching you will be able to play not only standard maps (36x36, 72x72, 108x108, 144x144)
but also three new XXL maps: 180x180, 216x216, 252x252.

Now instead of S random maps the game produces XL, M - 180x180, L - 216x216, XL - 252x252.
108x108 maps are generated by default.

Also you can use any RMG template (not only that in the archive) to play XXL maps.
Just open rmg.txt with any appropriate editor and set Maximum Size to 98.

Download (right-click on the link and choose 'Save As...')

can't you use SOD 3.2 executable instead of 4.0? I think it should work fine as everything else is the same...

You can run heroes SoD exe with 4.0 resources but you will get permanent game crushes during fights, on the adventure map and so on.
