majaczek, try HoMM3 HD 4.203 RC4
with new patcher_x86.dll ver. 4.2.1


updated HD-mod to 4.202 RC4 by update button
then trying to update again but get this
Quote:
---------------------------
HoMM3 HD - Update
---------------------------
Error #241: Failed to download https://sites.google.com/site/heroes3hd/files/Update.ini
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------


my patcher_x86.dll is version 3.0 so it's why it crashes.
it seems you forgot to update/upload the newest file


EDIT: I finally successfully updated to version you prescribed! I will check it soon!

EDIT: Sadly it crashes on WoG multi-choice dialogue box. Do you prescribe any tweaking? what should I do?
EDIT: it is somewhat better, it doesn't crash all the time - only about 25% on the condition could you fix that please?
EDIT: It seems also it crashes on other dialogue boxes
Baratorch, thanks for your great work, but please fix it soon?

Due to compatibility that's only displayed for random generated maps, because other maps could have restrictions and mods on heroes.
Make sure the HD+ checkbox is activated.

So I wanted to do a multiplayer session with a friend. We haven't played since spring and we had no problem connecting back then. Now it says that there's an error connecting and the connection timeouted.

Both versions are up to date. We are using hamachi (firewalls are off). It seems there's a problem connecting H3HD with the hamachi. We didn't have this problem during our last sessions in early spring. I dunno what updates came since then, but everything else is unchanged. Any ideas?

Try to remove DPWSOCKX.DLL from your heroes folder or rename it.

Hi baratorch,

Would it be possible to add the movsx -> movzx fix that allows 65,535 objects to HDmod for SoD?
It's available for HotA and WoG and only missing for SoD

Thank you so ever much for your contributions!

The past updates including some fixes for HoTA HD simultanoues turns with GameRanger.

But how to play HoTA HD with GameRanger?
Only Heroes 3 and Heroes 3 Armageddons Blade are listed at GameRanger.
And when I try to assing the hotaHD.exe to heroes 3, GameRanger says I have to choose the heroes3 exe.

The HD mod is really great! I wish I'd found it sooner.

I have some minor tweak suggestions. Most of them are from the original. Sometimes you get so used to doing repetitive things that we forget to question why we have to do them, hence these suggestions.

----------------------------------

Option to default to Gold or Experience when picking up a chest. Maybe [Alt] for choice of the two to open.

Make it so when clicking Gold or Experience, it automatically applies the selection (eliminate click to confirm choice). Same for Skill Selection when

Hero gains a level. Think how many needless clicks could be saved.

Eliminate confirmation notification (ie. 14 Centaurs join your army) by making the initial notification say 'Would you like to recruit 14 Centaurs?' (Yes/No). The notification that they've joined your army after you agreed to have them join is unnecessary.

The 'M' key doesn't completely use movement points but the left click does. That is, if a hero is on rough terrain and has just a little bit of movement points left, pressing 'M' does nothing to use up those movement points but if you click the mouse to move it will use up those last movement points.

Enable the arrow keys to move the selected save game (up and down scrolling through saved games). Right now only the mouse will change one saved game to another. Here's another notification that could be removed, that the game has been saved.

Make the cursor disappear during enemy turns (against computer opponents).

Make 'Invite a Hero' selectable via backpack type display (all available heroes on screen at once). And/or make 'Invite a Hero' scrollable via arrow keys. Have 'Invite a Hero' keep track of where you are on your scroll through instead of resetting back to random if you make any other clicks (like right-clicking on one of the currently available heroes to hire after you've scrolled some through 'Invite a Hero' will reset it back to random).

On your new Recruit window (which is awesome by the way), it would be helpful to see what creatures are available. It's not always clear if you're being shown the maximum available or just what you can afford. It would make tweaking what to buy and what to leave behind much easier.

Include a skill shop or enhance the Universities to allow you to purchase any skill you want. This may be a controversial move for multi-player. Maybe have this as an option you can turn on/off and maybe only for single player. I've played this game since Heroes I came out. I'd rather play my heroes exactly the way I want them and to not have some skill I despise forced on me.

Make it an option to have Creature dwellings sell/give the upgraded version instead of the basic.

Rename heroes3.exe to something else, then rename h3hota HD.exe to heroes3.exe.

@MoonBeam

First of all: HD Mod is not meant to change the gameplay in any way, just the graphics and handling.
So for some of your last suggestions it would be better to use HotA or WoG, where some of your thoughts are already realised (if I remember right).

And what difference does it make? You can't go a field further any way. And the next day you won't have more than full movement points.

Eliminate confirmation notification

Many have already been removed or moved to the infobox on the bottom right!
Btw for skills and chest choices you can just double click the choice you want, which is much more convenient. That is just one thumb-click with my mouse.

If you got it from 'https://sites.google.com/site/heroes3hd/' then it's a false positive, unless the website was hacked, but I just checked and it's definitely seems clean (scanned with ESET).

Sometimes anti-virus software is just bad and deletes perfectly legitimate files, which is kinda ironic.

Hello

thx for the last update witch enables the Town/Heroes menu to select very easily the desired objects.

Unfortunately the selection menu for the hero is restricted to 16.
As a result, all other magic heroes slide out of the menu, as soon as the additional heroes from AB / SOD / HOTA are in the user-map available.
Similarly, for example Ranloo displaced Nagash.

Can you enlarge the hero table?

Edit: Since the last update you also can't select this disappeared heroes in the original selection menu.

It is not a bug, it is just the way original game works. It have never been possible to have more than 16 heroes from certain town being available to select as start hero.

It is actually possible to have more than 16 heroes for a town. The campaign heroes can be added, try for example enabling Adrienne in the map editor, you won't be able to select her as starting hero, but she can appear if you choose random starting hero or she might appear in your tavern.
I wish it was possible to select them as starting heroes too, some of them are overpowered like Gelu and Dracon, but not all of them.
