The minimum fully supported screen resolution height is 664 (and it is recommended to use). Some HD-mod interface enchancements require more than 600 pixels and cannot be enabled when the heigt is less than 664. Combat queue is just one more feature of such sort; 600-resoultions never were actually supported (except the very beginning of the project).

At least I hope the creature queue can be disabled. I'm also starting to wonder if Factory will be available in this real resolution.

It can be disabled.

Also I see zero reason why Factory's town screen wouldn't be available in the original resolution.

But I despise it (the 664). So do my friends. And that battle queue, unlike dig and other options, can be possibly put there in the battle screen, even if it would look somewhat ugly (not like the actual BQ is looking very nice).

I was totally sarcastic, with a deep meaning on this world.

This. I think it's wrong to claim the original resolution is not supported, since you can still be play both SOD and Hota with that resolution. It's just not an option in HD mod.

I use the lowest resolution, but changing it to a higher one doesn't change anything either.
Maybe I didn't update correctly, even though I installed the update mutliple times. When I press update and I finish the installation process, the install window goes up again immediatley, as if it didn't realise that it's already installed.

I really don't know. A while ago I couldn't update correctly because the game or editor was still running.

That's so sh*tty. If I want to play the game in full HD (not that fake HD with the battle and town screen at lower resolution), why can't I get the battle queue too? Because they (the devs) didn't bother and only play the fake HD resolution?
.


Do the maths and learn what pixels, "resolution", DPI/PPI and image size are.
That "real FHD" is not possible without new bigger game assests redrawn from scratch.

I actually had the map editor open all the time. But when I closed it, it still didn't work - same Situation.
But today, as I wanted to enter the online lobby, the game forced me to install it and then it worked just fine from there.

Congratulations with the combat queue feature.
I have'nt tested it yet, but it seems like a very nice feature.

native resolution for heroes 3 without HDmod is 800x600 so combat screen was designed for that resolution - and to fit on the screen without scrolling (unlike main map) so there is (almost) nothing for HDmod to add on the sides to make it fill any larger resolution.

you can set HDmod to run heroes 3 in 800x600 but on wide screen it will still have unused/unfilled borders on the sides

No, resolution will be always 800x600. It not only matter of graphics, also game engine. 800x600 battlescreen is divided for hexes. Every hex has hardcoded coordinates, also cursor moves are calculated using this resolution.

So just fyi, the crash with view air/view earth still exists in RC87...

And sending the error report still doesn't work, it just says unable to send report error 406.

Here's the crash report again:
on maps with no underground layer, there is still a button to switch surface/underground on the view air/view earth screen. clicking the button twice crashes the game.

First of all, is HD version RC88 and HotA 1.6.1? Or just regular HoMM3? Also, don't forget, the PvP server is under DDoS attack right now.

Edit: Ah, you meant offline MP. Still same questions.
