HD mod. Play in high resolutions.

HoMM3 HD - a non-official fan made addon (multifunction patch) for Heroes of Might and Magic 3.
Initially, the addon was created to change the original game resolution 800x600 to a bigger but now it has even more features.

HoMM 3 HD does not affect the original gameplay and improves the interface functionality, makes it more comfortable to play and fixes a some original game bugs.

All the tiny graphical improvements preserve the original game style.

Features:
Graphics (documentation under construction)
UI and game settings extended functionality
HD+ (original gameplay fixes and other essential features for online multiplayer gaming)
Original Game bug fixing
Sound

Latest version: 4.100 RC6

Download page

Changelog page

800x600 original game still works as it should after HD mod installation (no need to make any copy for backup)

Sorry for my English!

He mostly corrected the bugs reported by people. Report a bug and you will be the trigger for next version

Btw, if battle could be in full screen, it would be much better. Not sure if can be done. Also install instructions (unpack in...)

Awesome work, definitely an essential mod for me.

And the extra buttons on the Trade screen are a nice touch.

It changes a lot of icons, thus making it incompatible with mods doing the same. First version was better (for me), being neutral. More you add, less modders can use it. But other features are nice.

It is very nice tool but I need to agree with Salamandre.
IMO, it shouldn't go to far with moding the game. It shouldn't be another mod it should be only HD tool with few new solutions (i.e. splitting/trading army) and compatible with other mods.

New solutions shouldn't replace old one, i.e. SHIFT is not working anymore in the hero trade screen, you need to push split creatures button. Not good.

But ofc thanks anyway. If it is stable in MP and GameRanger, I will use it for sure.

How many icons 2.24f changes compared with the first version? I think it's quite not a lot.
All of the PCXes, that HD mod changes, are need to be changed for High Rez. This can not be otherwise. You can easily edit these PCXes (BMPs) in \HiRezData\BMP

And You can turn off most of the HD mod features (including features, that require new PCXes & DEFs)  using Options file \HiRezData\HiRez2.ini

Here is HiRez2.ini description on russian:

I'll make description  in english later

Thanks. What we must change in .ini to enable original icons and enable also custom portraits? I noticed that the HD last version force the original portraits while ignoring the ERM scripts.

I also installed it in a folder where GF 32 bit patch was enabled and it does not work. I get black screen. I guess I have to remove the GrayFace patch but not sure what files.

SHIFT is still working by this way: First click on army (without pressing SHIFT), then press SHIFT and click empty slot.
You can change Extended army managemen = 1 to Extended army managemen = 0 in HiRez2.ini and use original hero trade screen.

If you don't like a feature in HD mod, offer an alternative.

It's very strange. I have not done anything specifically for this. I'll try to fix it.

If you are completely satisfied with the work of GF 32 bit patch, change Color mode = 1 to Color mode = 0 in HiRez2.ini

I've installed it on H3 Complete and SHIFT is not working the way you described. And I like new interface in Hero trade screen.
But I want both

SHIFT really is not working by the old way in swap manager.
It will be fixed in the next version of HD mod.

Maybe offer two versions, one which does not change anything but High resolution, and one which the new icons, usable for those who play original versions of the game?

And of course the last could be improved even more, while the first is used as a base. It makes me sad that now Atlantis-mod for example, needs a lot of further modifications to be played on HD, while on previous version I only had to modify res bar (HD patch is included with the mod).

Great work.
I like the fact hat most changes are optional, please keep it that way. Many people liked this mod because it changed resolution and nothing more, keeping gameplay intact.

I would suggest addition of installer (at some point of development) that would ask you  about version of your game, and installed additional files if necessary.

Also I have noticed a bug, "credits" button in main menu does not work. I know it is minor thing but still a space for improvement in this great mod.

Again great patch, and cool to see the kingdom overview bug has been fixed!

I want to report another thing though:

the team alignments box appears later only, in the scenario information window entered while playing. When starting a map from the main menu, the box doesn't work and clicking on the flags shows "this is your color" - "this color is your enemy".

Also, I notice the mouse cursor is less fluid than it used to be with the 2.20 patch.

Very nice project, congrats man. But one thing i missing here - Exchange of artefacts between Heroes. Its important thing to save time. We can use ofc H3Lite with F11, but would be nice to have all in one way

Unfortunately H3_lighter is not working with H3_HD. (probably not recognize as H3).
So it is important to implement one more button for switching the artifacts.
BTW> Would be nice if these buttons could have assigned shortcuts with possibility to be modified in .ini file, so that everyone could have his own configuration.
