Suddenly can't play multi-player

Thanks for the suggestion.
My partner downloaded three files and copied them to me on a memory stick and we both removed all traces of the old installations and re-installed just now.
The files were:
setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe
patch_heroes_of_might_and_magic_3_complete_2.0.1.17.exe
HoMM3_HD_latest_setup.exe

Again, we tried with all firewalls turned off for the best chance but it still hangs at 'receiving map headers'.

The odd thing is that when she installed, they created a folder called GOG Games and when I installed the same setup file it created a folder called Heroes!

Sorry - duplicate. No way to remove a post?

We both cleared out everything from previous installations and installed  identical files on both machines:
setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe
patch_heroes_of_might_and_magic_3_complete_2.0.1.17.exe
HoMM3_HD_Latest_setup.exe

But still no luck - hangs at the same place .

Any other ideas?

Background
My partner and I have been playing HD+ multip-player recently with an ethernet cable.
After a week's break we came back to it last night and can't make it work.
As far as we know we haven't changed anything in that week.
The only thing that has happened is that my partner's FB account was hacked multiple times in a few days. That's now resolved but maybe a virus altered something we don't know about?
It's also the same whether it's a new game or calling up a saved one.
We can see when a game has been hosted by the other but after the second player joins we get the 'sending map headers' message and it hangs (at least 15 mins which is the longest we've waited).

Specs
We're both on Windows 7.
Both have the same version of HoMM3, HD+, HD5.0 RC94

What we've tried
We have tried everything on each machine (either of us hosting, etc.) and it's the same whoever is doing what.
We have tried with all firewalls turned off (Windows Firewall, Windows Advanced Firewall) and checked sharing options in the Network Centre/Adapter Settings/LAN/Sharing are set to 'allow'.
My partner has re-installed the mod and re-booted her machine but I haven't (re-booting mine is a nuisance on mine as I have many work programmes open all the time).
And to complicate things today my HoMM3 has stopped working solo - I get to 'Start' and then it hangs.
We've run out of things to try.

We'd really appreciate any ideas.


You should check if H3 is the only program that behaves weird. Who knows, maybe the virus affected more programs, in which case I would advise to back up your data, reinstall Windows and install all your programs back.

Try webarchive on the current download page to download older versions.

Didn't work, only 3.58f is available. Even all the links on the old strategyplanet.com are dead. Anyway, it doesn't matter, I was just trying to see how it looks for fun.

You can try using SOD_SP plugin for HD mod. It shows spell duration and does a lot of other interesting stuff but it only works for singleplayer

Good afternoon! The reason some programs and apps do not work could be any kind of virus on your computer. Do you have an antivirus? Try to scan a computer and check its safety. You can also read here https://antivirus-review.com/avast-antivirus-review is Avast good for malware. I usually use only this antivirus but maybe you could find the other one which is also good.

What is the average time for the Quick Combat calculations (from clicking on an enemy till the appearance of the battle result window)? Is it normal on a modern computer to wait 3-4 seconds when fighting against 30 peasants?

I am using the latest HotA and HD mod versions installed on HoMM III from GOG, Windows 10 64-bit.

Hi there. Baratorch, I'd like your attention for a moment. Please read this very carefully.

I am a map maker that built 3 maps for the Succession Wars mod. One small, one medium, one large. My fourth and latest map was an Extra Large, 1-player map that I spent a considerable amount of time working on. It was called Left to His Own Devices, and it was a tribute to Lord Kilburn after his death in Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven. I liked the character and wanted to give him his own map to explore and adventure in, and a story to go with it.

At the time I installed the Succession Wars mod, it needed the HD Launcher for Heroes 3 in order to run properly, which I promptly installed as well. Some time after playing the mod, I decided to make maps for it, as Heroes 2 was my favorite game in the series. During this time, the HD Launcher kept wanting to update (which I was okay with and let it do its thing).

No major issues.

Time passed, and the launcher slowly began to inject things into the actual game, including a garbled resource display bar at the bottom of the game screen. Still not a huge deal. I don't think the HD Launcher was designed specifically to be compatible with the Succession Wars mod, which is fine, as long as I can play the game. The fact is, I still needed the HD Launcher in order to play the game properly.

Fast forward to today and every time I start the game up, it wants to update. I get as far as an update for 5.2 RC15. I get stuck in an infinite update loop that reverts me back to RC14. If I ignore the update and keep on playing, the game crashes upon starting a new map or loading a save game. So now we have a huge problem.

I try everything I can to update to the new version and still no dice. So I decide to uninstall the game in order to have a fresh, clean install and hopefully iron out any future issues with the HD launcher.

I forgot to back up my files that I had in that installation, among which is the map I spent nearly a year working on (about 7-8 months approx.) It's now gone and lost to the ether forever. All because a small update from the HD Launcher wouldn't function properly, breaking my entire installation.

You could say it was partly my fault for forgetting to back up my files, but that doesn't change the fact I just lost a small piece of my life to a buggy piece of software.

UPDATE: Btw, I also lost my third map, The Beauty of Winter, which I also spent several months working on because while it was finished, it was never released online yet. I can only hope that my beta tester still has the last updated version on his computer.

It's sad to lose work that way, but looks like it was entirely your fault. Mods and maps, all this stuff needs regular backup, otherwise crap happens.

@SuperGoober

If you still have the HDD/SSD and the map files were not overwritten, I'm almost sure you can get them back with a file recovery program.

Guys why is battle screen mouse cursor laggy in low resolution? When I move it onto a unit to attack order there is a 1s lag. When playing in native resolution 1920x1080 there is no problem. So it seems the scaling makes battlefield cursor laggy. Is there way to fix it?

Hello ,

@baratorch

I have important question. It's possible add option in HDMOD -> change path folder "save all days" for SoD? Or best get path with file *.exe (It's work correctly in first option "save before each battle")?

Are there any plugins that copy the HotA change where if you have an external dwelling flagged, it accumulates its creatures through the weeks, rather than having to get them each week?

Also plugins for banning specific factions from appearing as town on maps? Or limiting the number of heroes that a player/AI can hire (reducing the max of 8)?

As a whole is there a list of existing plugins?

Thank you.

Guys, my main pc is dead and I am playing the game with a desktop that has a bad intel integrated graphics.

Unfortunately, the game seems to lag and tear whenever heroes move, using the 1920x1080 resolution.
I tried most settings with no success.

Also, updated drivers.
How can I solve this?

It's for WoG but it's hd-mod thing, so it should work at your PC.

Thanks, it made me discover the tweaks menu and I discovered that all was needed was to disable V-Sync. Works fine now.

also, discovered that I could set the recruits numbers automatically to max default, it was very useful!
Are there any other useful "hidden" tweaks?

Also, I find that the hero speed "3" is a little too slow, but the hero speed "4" moves like lightning, it's too fast. Is it possible to choose a middle ground?

No matter, the new update solved everything and it even made scrolling so smooth, thanks Verok!!

By the way, does this mod have some "Upgrade all creatures Button" hotkey or interface command?
