Picked up HoMM3 Complete a couple of days ago and want to DL the highly recommended HD patch, however, the official links seem to be dead. Does anybody happen to have a mirror for the latest version?

When you run the HD mod, make sure you click "No CD/DVD", that way, when you load, you won't be surprised to only find an option to play multiplayer. It took me a while to figure that out yesterday.

Can anyone explain the scale filters to me? On the website, that part has been under construction forever.

@baratorch:
Could HD mod incoorperate some more visual/features stuff from Hota?

I would like to play some old maps designed without hota rebalance in mind, but if I start HD mod with the default H3 exe, some features, like hero meeting within town and other non-game-changing things are not active.

So I guess it would be best if all features that are just visuals or comfort and do not change the game in any way, should be added by HD mod, not (only) by hota.

Feature idea if possible:
Allow allied players to switch to a "watch" state, to watch what the ally is currently doing, be it fights or moving heroes. This would make especially non-simultanous games a bit less pain, but of course it would also be great for simultanous games (to watch an epic battle your ally is doing).

Hello


I have crashes every time I pick up Golden Goose or Horn of the Abyss.


If I run the game without HD mod, everything works as it should.

Is there a way to permanently disable the "Tournament Rules" question? I find it annoying to always have to answer the same No.

yes, at least in older version that I use, but I forgot which particular option is responsible for it... or maybe never knew if it was added recently

Hello everyone, I have a question, in my family we are 6 that we played since this game came out (heroes III) we usually play until today, I would like to know if there is any application to be able to share (in game) the battles that are they are having for the enjoyment of the other players, a kind of spectator of the battle.
of course, thank you very much and sorry for the translation

How do you play? Hotseat, LAN, HotA Online Lobby, other internet ways?

Are you all allied? Vs whom? AI or human players?

Did anybody realized that The Orb of Fire doesn't work properly in HD Mod? It doesn't increase the dmg done by Armageddon.
Well, after a quick test I found out that there's a bug that writes improper dmg done by Geddon. it deals 50% more with the Orb, but it writes that it dealt the Orbless dmg. I can live with this glitch.

New *optional* formula for skills calculation mostly for more balance (anti pure static skills).
Simple example:

Skills calculation:
I. Hero 1 LVL base skills: 2/2/1/1
II. Hero 20 LVL base skills: 10/10/3/3

Units at battlefield (every round or every battle calculation):
I. Hero LVL 1 & 2 base skills: no change

II. Hero 20 LVL base skills:
creatures attack +x (not +10 like hero above): random(current - base) = random(10-2) = random(8)
creatures defense +y (not +10 like hero above): random(current - base) = random(10-2) = random(8)

hero spell power: no change (more powerful magic skills)
hero knowledge skill: no change

Pros:
- more balance in the game (tactics at battlefield really matter now)
- heroes with 30/30/30/30 will not be sure about winning the game (tactics at battlefield really matter now)

Cons:
- new random calculation system (optional)

Example - who will win this battle with the same units:
Hero 20 (warrior) LVL base skills: 10/10/3/3 or Hero 20 (mage/wizard) LVL base skills: 3/3/10/10 ?

What do you think ?
