understandably, Online Lobby functions are considered as is, and there is a regulation agreement before registering

however not everyone reads the rules there. not to mention that you cannot go back there

since there are so many people getting banned, who are not 'admitting defeat' properly, or even leaving games abruptly, maybe a seperate link to the "main" rules, or a warning would suffice ?

at least then a warning would be issued for the possible consequences, before they happen

not very optimistic about it, but at least a fraction of leavers would be deterred in behaving the way they are now

Heroes 3 HD + mod

Hi guys,
I've recently downloaded the latest version of the HD+ mod. The game is working fine but when I quit the game I get this annoying sound it is like the game has not shut down properly and I have to restart my computer for the sound to go away, If I dont restart my computer I cannot run the HD mod again as it freezes so forced to restart.
Has anyone encountered this problem? any solutions?

Thanks

Hello (sorry for my bad english), I had the same problem (windows 10). Try this to stop the annoying sound :
- right-click on 'h3hota HD.exe' and choose Properties
- select the 'Compatibility'-tab
- activate the option 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:'
   select 'Windows XP SP3'.
- save this setting by clicking the [OK]-button
It should work fine.

By the way, is there a way to fix the cracking/popping sound whenever I take any action (click on a building, move stacks, etc) ? this happens in vanilla and in HD.

You can do it manually. You must find appropiate wav file inside heroes3.snd file and replace it with "mute" wav file.

Thank you for that, that worked!!! Now I need to fix another problem, when I quit the game back to the desktop and relaunch the HD mod I get a black screen with the game music but I cannot click on anything and have to do a force restart of my pc before I can launch the game again. I guess what Im trying to say is that the game crashes as soon as I try to launch it after I quit the game.
If there is a solution for that, that would be great.

thanks

actually, I think it was something with the launcher/hd mod? When I changed "32 bit GDI" to "32 bit true", all problems disappeared. Weird, why does graphic render affect sound?

Hi guys

I've been trying to patch my GoG version (Heroes 3 Complete French) without success. It seems that the patch only works with the English version, which is not that annoying but it keep to trigger me ^^

I manage to launch the game, go to the main menu screen, but when I try to start a map, the game crash and here is what I got :

[HOMM3 HD CRASH LOG]



Log

{

start logging

compability_dir = C:Program Files (x86)HoMM 3 Complete FR_HD3_DataCompability#sod_en30r

EXE_VERSION & SOD

No Files.ini for 'C:Program Files (x86)HoMM 3 Complete FR_HD3_DataCompability#sod_en30r'

got sulfur in nagabank. replace it to gems.

EXCEPTION IN N_Delete from before 4B6988



}







HOMM3 HD version: 4.205 RC4

I tried with the latest version of the HD patch, and also with previous versions as linked in the previous pages (here it's 4.205 RC4). Sometimes the error message change but it's mostly the same : Compability folder.

Anyone have a clue ?

You should uninstall the game completely, clear registry entries and remove unneeded folders, then reinstall the game outside 'Program Files' (for example, use C:\Games\Heroes3\ folder when installing). Is is a best practive for Windows Vista and later OS. 'Program Files' folder can be safely used on Windows XP SP3 or earlier OS (Windows 2000 SP4, Windows NT 4.0 SP6, Windows ME, Windows 98SE, Windows 98 or Windows 95 OSR2).

Is it possible to make the HD mod run in the background? Currently, only by pressing F4 (therefore making the game run in a window) can I alt-tab and let the AI take its turn while I browse the web

Greetings Heroes lovers!

Really sorry for the off-topic, but at this time I am really desperate. I've searched everywhere and didn't find a solution to my problem.

Furthermore, I did not find a topic associated with my problem, so here it goes:

All in all, I have a problem with my color selection in the Advanced Options of a Random Map. I cannot pick any color, besides red or blue, if I'm using the HD Mod. However, if I go with the original game, all is where it supposed to be and there isn't a problem.

Screenshot: https://postimg.cc/dLY63RFg
(selected map template is 8XM12a with the HD Mod)

Can you please help a player out with this one?

Many thanks in advance!

P.S. I have recently bought a copy of the updated, original game and still no luck.

@johnthegnoll:
It is not choosing a colour, it is choosing a player==starting position. And the chosen map template only allows human players to start at first or second starting position, therefore you can only select red or blue. Choose another template that allows more positions for human players, if you want another colour.

Just set "human or computer players" to 8 instead of 2.

The last Hota lobby update changed chat timestamp from local time to Moscow time. Is this intended?

dunno if this is the right place to ask about this but...
How do I enable the ST (Simultaneous Turn) feature? I tried to host a LAN game with my friend but the ST option stays red and I could not enable it. In addition, I've already updated my HD mod to the latest version. My friend and I really wanna try out the feature, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hi wch,
iirc, simultaneous turns only work in the online lobby. If you want to play simultaneously with your friend, you both have to connect to the lobby and create a game in there.
