Turn of CPU player doesn't come to end

I have a problem during online game through HD+mods:
Everytime when we play multiplayer via hamachi/gameranger, with Hdmod, once for some days/weeks, CPU enemy player has unending turn. When one of human players ends his turn, CPU starts his turns, and normally it takes one to two seconds, but from time to time CPU player freezes himself and doesn't end. Game doesn't crash, also gameranger/hamachi doestn't. Processor is overheated and process of "heroes3.exe" is still working and using more and more memory.
Do You know what and how to fix it? It seems to be independent of which version of HD mod we have (older or the newest), we play polish Gold Edition with HD+mod, original scenarios and random generated maps, the same problem. What can we do? For now, we can only load "autosave" and hope, that the problem doesn't repeat, but it repeats for next week or couple of weeks.
(I dodn't found answers in any threads so forgive me if it is solved in other topic)

@baratorch:

Maybe this is something for your HD+ bugfixes?

Sav has since replied to my findings and he doesn't fully seem to agree with me - so it's still open for debate on whether that's truly a bug or not . It's weird clunkiness in the calculations in my book, anyway.

And as Sav indicated, the HotA team has apparently also fixed the Elemental Level bug in their version of the game; not sure how that would pan out with compatibility, if the HD mod would also try to fix that issue?

baratorch could you please enable optional witch huts and scholars as a tweak for HD mod, I think a lot of us would appreciate it.

Damn, this still doesn't support Heroes Chronicles. It would be so cool to play those campaigns in HD with all the bells and whistles.

Just copy the Chronicles files into your HoMM3/HotA map directory and you can play them as custom campaign with HD mod enabled.

Yeah, I know, I already did that but it's not the same:

- You have to mess around with portrait files - a minor hassle but it still means that you can't have a "fully installed" package of everything H3 because you have to fiddle around with rewriting files.

- No intros - again, it's a minor thing but I honestly have no idea why the HD mod ignores even the H3 intro that should play at every startup in H3 Complete if you don't skip it. Overall the mod improves the gameplay experience a lot so by following that logic I should be able to not only view the original intro but also the one for Armageddon's Blade. Just add a button to them somewhere on the campaign select screen!

Anyway back to the point: to watch the intros you have to install all the GOG versions of the Chronicles games and start them up.

- No voice acting - now this is the one that makes playing Chronicles as a custom campaign a bad idea to me. In the original Chronicles all the missions had voiced intros just like in the case of all the other H3 campaigns. You can't have those if you play Chronicles as custom campaigns.

- I never saw the 9th campaign (the one that was originally a free mini campaign) uploaded anywhere so basically you can't play that one.

Overall the thing that bugs me is that it would be lovely to play Chronicles in its original presentation in HD. You know: the menus, the nice artworks, the original mission select screens, all the bells and whistles.

The spell book animation does not work in either the "HD" or the "HD+" mode. Do you know about it or is it just me?

There is no animation for the increased spellbook the HD mod provides.

baratorch answered that a page ago here:

so the best solution is:
someone creates the animation for it

Problem with HD MOD

I was trying to update game, but I get that error

Whenever I run game, I don't have any window with update to game

I even tried to download manually from dropbox.. but file isn't existing

To get things much worse... HD Mod original site supports only 4.207 RC2

Do we really need that though? Honestly fancy animations like that kinda vent out of fashion a long time ago, I think that the instant, slick functionality and the larger pages help the game a lot more though of course offering the option for those who want the animation would be better. I mean I just ranted a bit about the missing intro and I think most people couldn't care less about that.

Still rooting for Heroes Chronicles support though. Maybe one day? Tarnum wants to go HD!

Ohh, thank you!

An another question:

Can the resolution 1066x600 (which is the widescreen version of 800x600 res.) be used with "original 16-bit" or "16-bit autoswitch" or "32-bit true" in fullscreen?

The 1066x600 resolution has Heroes 3 HD Edition Style, and I prefer it better as the reduced objects.

Can i play in 1066x600 resolution without any stretch filtering or can i play in any 16:9 resoulitons with 1066x600 (HD Edition Style)?

Sorry for my bad english, guys!

Yes, you can but only if you set up a custom resolution of 1066x600 in the control panel settings of your video card. It will also look terrible because that resolution is very far from the native resolution of any 16:9 monitor in existence so I don't recommend doing it.

As for playing without stretch filters you're basically doing just that if you select "nearest" as the filter but that setting will drastically reduce the image quality. In my opinion "bilinear sharper" is the one that is closest to how the original game is supposed to look like but you should really go with some form of xBRZ: that's the highest quality of upscaling you can get these days and it really does wonders to the game.

I suggest looking at this if you wanna know more:

Thanks for your fast answering!

And can i play in 1280x720 (this resoultion works clearly with all graphics mode) resolution with HD Edition Style?

HD Edition style (only works with 1066x600) /better prefer/


... and the reduced style /not prefer/


I hope that my problem is understandable for all of you!

Judging by the screenshots you'll understand this :

Meg tudod csinálni, csak nem értem egészen pontosan, hogy mit és miért akarsz csinálni. Ha mode-nak 32-bit True Stretchable GDI-t állítasz be, akkor a source size sosem a monitor felbontását fogja jelenteni, hanem azt a renderfelbontást, amit a játék szépen használ magának, szóval ha pl. 1920x1080 a monitorod natív felbontása, akkor abban a felbontásban fog futni a játék, viszont közben pont úgy fog kinézni, mintha 1066x600-ban futtatnád, ha 1066x600-at adtál meg source size-nak. Ha tehát azért akarod 720p-ben tolni, mert attól félsz, hogy nagyobb felbontáson minden túl kicsi lesz, akkor fölösleges, mert a 32-bit True (stretchable) GDI ezt úgyis megoldja magának a source size-zal.

Nem tudom, hogy mennyire érthető ez így, de próbálkozz, és tutira le fog esni végül.
