I first thought HD mod goal was to allow to play in higher resolutions. Now I see it starts to come with a lot of changes/options in the game play. While they are very good, IMHO they should come separately from HD, to preserve backward compatibility. Or all maps and campaigns created until now will be screwed more or less. To think about.


Almost all features are things that preserve backwards compatibility. For example, you can already split stacks or count hexes in vanilla H3 - the HD mod just makes it more convenient. Although admittedly, the Invite Hero feature is pushing it... I would turn the Tournament Extensions off, yeah.

I am able to play all the maps created throughout the years without problem.

In the tavern where you hire heroes, there is an additional interface that lets you scroll through not hired heroes. You choose the one you want and hire the already enlisted hero. The next one that pops up in Tavern is the one you choose. Of course it's 2500 + 2500 gold like this and 2500 more for each hero. But for example, if your turn is first you can start with all the resource giving heroes, or gold giving ones or resurrection specialists etc etc..

You could already restart scenarios over and over until you get the heroes you want to start with. The invite hero feature allows people to avoid this and simply pick the heroes they want to level up. Most of the H3 maps seem to have a crapload of heroes available, it's like they didn't even bother to trim the number of heroes even when most are useless (for instance who needs necromancers when you're playing a castle campaign?) I used to restart scenarios over and over until I got the right heroes to start with (oh, there you are Dessa! Been looking all over for you!) so I'm very happy with the invite hero feature.

It shouldn't be a problem in multiplayer maps if the maker or host simply makes heroes unavailable if they are too powerful (resource or gold producing) Or they can make certain heroes only available to certain players (player who plays with inferno faction only gets inferno heroes) If the feature upsets game balance then it's the map makers fault imo.

Yes, i use it too most of the time, i  always pick Aine as my secondary Hero (scholar plus gold) i am not asking for it to be removed. All i said was it is easy to exploit it. you can reload for one or two heroes max, then your chances are really slim, but with this feature as long as you have the gold you can pick 10 heroes too.

Does anyone know if it's possible to see battles and town in full screen with this mod? If so, how?

I quess this mod makes the spell Dimensional door even more useful, because the adventure map is bigger with the mod. Am I right?

No, the maximum distance you can teleport is kept.

4 extra random map templates. Place them in HD3_Data\Templates:
Download

Nostalgia XXL: Nostalgia for Era 2's XXL maps mod.

Match Terrain: The standard rmg file except all towns are now set to match their natural terrain. This is not 100 percent efficient but getting an Inferno on snow terrain or a Stronghold in a forest is much much less likely. It works 90 percent of the time.

Headquarters: Large map template for 7 players, each starting in an area of two towns of same fraction. Lots of resources and artifacts.

Dwarf Tunnels: Dwarven Tunnels extracted as a single template from standard rmg file. I shortened the name for better display in HD mod map list.

Edit: Updated the link, the additional templates are now:
4sm0d
8MM0b
Coldshadow's Fantasy
Dwarf Tunnels
Fear
Guerilla
Headquarters
Hypercube
Long Run
Nostalgia XXL
Match Terrain (updated, Ring template excluded since terrain never matches towns)

I've just tried to dig the grail in a game. Noticed it's quite difficult to locate the exact position because the windows are not full screen with different resolutions etc. with the HD mod.

How does the strategy change here? Or is grail digging doomed, because different resolutions=too hard to measure?

I used to dig it in a couple of turns, now I can't even do it through the whole game. Crap!

Click anywhere with your scroll wheel, then click on the square option, and then the original resolution will be highlighted (try it out if you don't understand what I mean).

Currently my hd version says on starting, that there is a new version available. Answering yes to install now gives an error saying HD3_Update can't be executed. Trying this manually says: not exe file format. So i assume it is corrupted.

Installing the latest patch crashes with stack overflow.
Is there any downaload link for HD3_Update.exe?

I have 3.28 and when I click update it says it's the latest version. The link in the main page also directs you to v3.28 so I dont see what the problem is. Remove HD mod and reload 7MB from scratch.
