Hello there!

First of all, please let me forward you my most sincere congrats on the evident success of your ongoing project, and the same goes for the whole HotA team!

Now, my question is: is it even possible to get rid of the new big spellbook and use the original one instead? I've been trying to set < UI.Ext.SpellBook > = 0 on sod.ini to no avail, both on v5 RC5 and RC9. I won't say it's a bug yet, but it seems the engine won't pay attention to that particular setting while many of the rest I've played with work as expected.

Thanks for your attention.

Hey! Baratorch! Are you still working on this mod?!

The updater of the launcher mod's window is not working, again.

So...are you at version 5 RC10 yet or, what is going on?

Haven't been able to make my weekly updates for quite some time, now.

Am at RC9 since the last time the update function worked properly.

I just installed heroes 3 again (new pc) and installed an old HD version. When I try to update it, I get this error:

Error #10: Failed to download _HD3_DataCompatibility#erahota maps.bin

How to solve this? Should I switch the download link in a file? which file was it that contains the source of updates?

(sry can not edit post)

I solved it by installing the latest version at website (RC5) and then updating it. Now I got no error.

Don't know how to fix it, but 99% problems with HD mod can be fixed by running in Administrator mode.

Another bug report:
1) I did not install heroes in C/programs. but when choosing "Full Screen" the game crashes direclty at the start.
Fullscreen works, if I set "Graphics Mode" to "32 bit (stretchable)", instead of the GDI version. Maybe you could filter this kind of eror and instead of crash, you could tell the user to change graphic mode?

2) After it crashed a errorreport-window opened. The mouse is invisible (or below) when hovering over this window. After filling it, it says "sending report failed" so I guess this feuture does not work?

3) After I succesfully updated to 5.0 RC9: When I hit again the update button, I get "failed to download [...].Update.ini"

HD mod Installation issue

Hello,

I'm totaly new to the HoMM3 modding scene and I just bought the Complete edition from GOG. First of all I wanted to install the HD mod but I can't get past the point where the mod installations asks me to select a folder. Every time it says " HoMM3 HD must be installed on Heroes of Might and Magic III SoD or Complete. Selected folder does not contain required Heroes of might and Magic files, so installation of HoMM3 HD is impossible."

I'm very sorry if the problem has already been posted and answered but I just couldn't find it.

Thanks a lot!

It seems there's no bug at all only your broken installation.

are you trolling?
Can't be trolling, because your hint about admin is ccorect (if installed in C/Programs).

My installation is fine and the bugs mentinoed above have nothing to do with "broken installation" it will happen on every system. The fullscreen thing might only happen on special resolution like 4k, I don't know. But the bug-report window thing will happen to everyone.

And the "update.ini" thing was already mentioned in the past within this thread, but it is very difficult to find even with search... changing the source of the update work at that time, but i do not remeber where.

GoG releases are updated 5-10 times per year, so it is impossible to predict what will be in the game folder after installation from next random distribution update. Try using a more predictable original CD release from year 2000. And there will be no problems anymore.

Will heroes HD ever support simultanoues turns for more than 2 players?
Just tried it again with 4 players (red, blue, brown, green) but before end of first week it crashed (random map without water).

Several versions ago it was quite stable if played without water, but since some months it is unplayable =(

Last time I complaint about constant game crashes I was told here in the forum that it officially only supports 2 players.

And baratorch himself told me that it works for 2 players (which is true, no/very few crashes with 2) but "should also work for more, at least if all players are in order (so for 3 players, host must be red, second must be blue and third must be brown)". But he gave no guarantee and indeed even with this constellation it is not possible to play more than ~1 week. =/

(and yes, also these crashes no trigger the "send error report" window, but sending always fails... I guess I won't write an email, cause I bothered him already alot about sim turns =/ )

Nearly perfect but...

Hello,
Here I come again with another question.

Every thing works perfectly fine just when I set the resolution to 1920x1080 (my screen resolution) and press play I have to play on a tiny little "screen" with big borders. I tried changing the graphics setting but it seems I didn't found the right ones! XD

PS: I play on a 28" screen with windows 10.

Thanks for your help

Better use 1280x720 because game was written for 800x600 CRT Monitors.

1024x768 runs fine for me where in which my old 17" CRT Monitor used to run the game.

So...I am resuming the same resolution for the HD type of gaming of the modded game.

But, if I want to keep my real full resolution of 1366 x 768 of my 31" TV/Monitor, I have to use the original .exe of The Horn of the Abyss at version 1.5.3 and, voila, true full screen interface of the game it is.

First of all, I did not even know of the existence of such advanced in Computer monitor technology.

Second, you might want to wait until MS Visual C++ game files are made for such an advanced graphical decoding interface. If not 2018, quite possibly by early Summer of 2019(VC 2019 distributable x86 & x64).

Third, the standard for consumers' usage, as this very moment I am writing this post, is 4K for both TVs and Monitors and, most of them are already Smart TV/Monitor type of display screens; All the way to 85 inches in size.

Fourth, 6K and 8K TV/Monitor Display units are in still in full development and testing at this very same time as of this post is being written down.

Anymore questions regarding the present and near future of Display units' progress?
