Like the above post, cant send the report so i've emailed you.
I can't play the game in MP at all after the last update, singleplayer is working fine. All the time in new map one of 2 pc get critical error crash. With the previous update i was able to play the game bot with constant crashing after a perioud.


First of all, is HD version RC88 and HotA 1.6.1? Or just regular HoMM3?.


It doesn't matter, because hd mod is affected on both h3hota.exe and heroes3.exe. They are placed in the same directory. You can't have diffirent version of hd-mod for HotA and vanilla H3.

I know that, unless you have more HoMM3 directories, like me . But that's not what I meant. Some HD versions have problems with, let's say, older/newer HotA versions from what I've heard.

This appears to be a bug: The Up or Down Arrow keys for Town Screen is supposed to change the current town to previous town or next town respectively. This is described on Page 134 of the RoE English manual. I tried on the base game, which shows both keys work. The two keys shows no actions at all on HoMM3 HD.


I just tried out "[H3] SoD_SP: a HDmod plugin" for the very first time on HoMM3 HD, and found the plugin fixes this keyboard shortcut issue for HD. Both Up and Down keys work as expected.

Guys, where do I find an older version of HD mod compatible with HotA 1.3.2 (31 December 2013)? I'm asking this for a guy on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/heroes3/comments/fvwglh/is_there_a_way_to_play_older_hota_versions/

Here: http://mmgames.ru/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=130&Itemid=217&lang=en

But you can play older HotA versions with newest HD-mod version. Overall, there are separate applications. But of course, playing older HotA or/and Hd-mod version you won't login to online lobby.

The guy said 1.3.2 doesn't work with newer HD+.

Edit: Thanks for the link.

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.


I'm talking about the Online MP, all update made ofcorse, after the last update of HD mode RC88 game continuing to crash on some point, it's not about the DDOS atack it's or online servers.

I've tried to reproduce the crash succesfully with RC88 and is from the game HD patch, if i load the map in offline MP still geting crash, if i uninstall the latest patch and put RC87 i can't reproduce the same crash but on some point the game still crash. Usually my problem with the game is if i get a crash i cant load it again with the autosave or last save because after the next turn i get the crash again and again, so i need to load 2-3 turns before to be able to play the map again otherwise is broken totaly, usuali occure only after the turn end or begin. Today i saw that sometimes if i go to a specific map location game crash again and again only if i take that road, probably the problem could be with the HOTA somehow and HD mode... i dont know.

I'll try to reinstall on both machine to se if is still present.

All update made ofcorse, after the last update of HD mode game continuing to crash randomly, it's not about the DDOS atack it;s about the patch, i was talking about MP online logicaly.

I've tried to reproduce the crash and is from the game HD patch, with the latest patch if i load the map in offline MP still geting crash, if i uninstall the latest patch and tried to reproduce the crash it;s missing. Usually  if i get a crash i cant load it again because after the next turn i get the crash again, so i need to load 2-3 turns before to be able to play again. Sometimes if i go to a specific map location game crash again.

It should be some kind of bug that's usually fixed next update.

Edit: Then a bug that's fixed a few updates later. RC88 appeared the next day after RC87, if I remember correctly, so it only fixed several more frequent stuff.

I've updated the post to be a little clear, you can reedit you post to be updated. English is my second language.

I hope that this will be fixed but somehow it was present in RC87, and with this isolations in home from Covid19 without heroes to fill my time is kinda bad )

i've sended him some crashlog because the sending button dosent work either.

That's really intriguing. I myself, almost never got crashes on HoMM3. No, I don't think I've seen baratorch.

You can share the crash log here too, I guess. Maybe we find out what's the problem, but I can't guarantee anything.

Edit: I edited it too.

I've found few players with similar crash like mine on [HotA] Bugreports. Critical bugs.

I'll try to make some advance troubleshoot to see exactly the problem.
Fresh instal dosent give me a fix.

PS: this error is from my wife laptop which is the second player in MP online because we are plaing simultaneus turns, and i am the host. On the log on what i need to look to see the error ? I need to understand how to troubleshoot the problem somehow, at least minimal, i'm a admin tech guy so i can catch up fast.

Thanks!

Yeah, that's it. If you want it to be like the original game, just launch it at lowest resolution (for real). What you're using is just a down-scaled version (playable by launching with a higher resolution than the lowest) with a few minor stuff added like the battle queue.

A small critique of the battle queue feature:
While the battle queue is cool, you miss some of the combat log, with only 1 line in the log, instead of 2.
Then you have to click or scroll the log to see what happened. The last event even disappear, unless you hover over the combat log.
I would actually like 3-5 lines always visible in the combat log or at least 2. So I'm probably gonna turn combat queue off for now, I know the order by heart any way.

Good addon indeed... it made my H3Complete run on Win10!

However it isn't perfect. It cannot show any cutscenes! when a cutscene is about to be shown, it gives an error message like:

ResourceManager::GetSample could not find the "sfx" resource h3x2Spc

Where the last word (h3x2spc) depends on the cutscene to be shown. then, it shows the text scrolling under the video, but the video itself is missing, as well as the speech.

Any solution, please?

HoMM3 HD - a non-official fan made addon (multifunction patch) for Heroes of Might and Magic 3.
Initially, the addon was created to change the original game resolution 800x600 to a bigger but now it has even more features.

HoMM 3 HD does not affect the original gameplay and improves the interface functionality, makes it more comfortable to play and fixes a some original game bugs.

All the tiny graphical improvements preserve the original game style.

Features:
Graphics (documentation under construction)
UI and game settings extended functionality
HD+ (original gameplay fixes and other essential features for online multiplayer gaming)
Original Game bug fixing
Sound

Latest version: 4.100 RC6

Download page

Changelog page

800x600 original game still works as it should after HD mod installation (no need to make any copy for backup)

Sorry for my English!

Did you update HD+ mod to RC90, or is it still at RC6, as shwon in your quote?

P.S. Are you a fan of nagas? I won't be offended if you don't answer this, though.

It's... logical. Obvioulsy you have cd version. All cutscenes are played from your CD in cd-drive. Hd-mod bypasses cd check, so game forgets than cd must be inserted in drive and start game without it.
They are two sulutions:
- insert cd  and disable No CD option in hd launcher.
- buy gog.com version. It's full digital version and all cutscenes are installed in your hd drive so they can be played.

Thank you so much! indeed the no-cd option did it. Now it works perfectly!

(and yes, I am indeed a fan of nagas. Kinda hard to explain why, though. The no-retaliation thing has a lot to do with it, but it's not all).
