Hello

Just found this forum early today and im so thrilled that so many others love the game aswell, me and my family has payed this game since the first heroes and played heroes 3 for about 10 years and still do.

However installing and doing more advanced stuff like this isen't my strongest side so perhaps someone can help me answer these noob quesions
I have read the guide and tried for a few hours aswell btw.

1. Does it work with a downloaded game, have several real copies but not here atm and wanted to get started.

2. Lets say i download the latest HOL version 3.2 do i get all the content from the earlier HOL aswell or do i have to download all files?

3. I downloaded WOG patch 1.9, the game and installed it in a folder i created in the heroes map called update i can't find were to change the settings nor the H3Updater exe, only got for maps. Got wogsetupex but can't open it with any program

4.The ERA II is that just more mods? can't see any specific download for a program with that name.

Thanks in beforehand and me and my family salute all of you especially Hero_Of_Light.

Could someone please give a quick run through of the steps in ERM required to change the dwelling of Ra Messengers to accumulate creatures? Right now the dwelling does not accumulate when I turn accumulate creatures in wog options. And also how to change the Tower Enchanter and Artillery growth so that it is cumulative in the towns? What tools are used to pack and unpack the ERM where this data is and which file is it?

Thanks!

It's been a while since I posted any replies to your questions so here they are now:

@kemott11

There is no problem with installing WoG revised as far as I know. You can try and see If it works. Note that you can't have two of my mod versions work together in the same installation. Only one version of my mod should be active at a time.

@brink99

The accumulate creatures script doesn't work properly with the dwellings of the original WoG 8th level creatures. This bug is not my doing, it's a WoG problem. I think the WoG option "8th level dwellings work normally" fixes this problem but I am not sure.

@trigger

All the versions of my mod work separately and have different features. HoLv3.22 is the latest version (and the richer in features in my opinion).


What you need to do is to install ERA II (found in these forums) on a clean Heroes III installation. In ERA you don't need the H3Updater exe. Just follow the download instructions mentioned in the first page of this thread. If you're using ERA II make sure you open the Mod Manager (found in the Tools folder) enable my mod and set it top priority in the list. This isn't always required (it may happen automatically) but I am reminding it just in case.

Thanks alot for the answers but im still having some issues.

I downloaded and extracted wog from http://www.maps4heroes.com/heroes3/in_the_wake_of_gods.php

And HoLv332 from http://www.4shared.com/rar/FgvHAPYS/HoLv322.html

The problem is i can't enter settings for WoG options nor mod options.
I have the Hol 3.2v that seems to be a program but it's a DAT file i can't open.

The ERAII i take it as it's included from the 1.9 patch i get from the WoG download and from the HoL you made i should get the new content anything i missed here?

Also if i wan't all content you've done before the 3.2v can i add that aswell?

Thank you sir.

The ERA you need can be downloaded in this topic:
http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=37208

There you find the latest ERA II (2.46) + WOG 3.58f (Latest version avaible of WOG)

Sorry to bother again but i need some help again if possible.

I downloaded the program you linked Roadwarrior and everything seems good. But im wondering this:

1. When i download HoL 3.22 i just extract it in the mod folder?

2. Is the modsmann were i can use the WOG settings? I also downloaded a test file a change of rampart and used modsmann to load but it found no files in that folder.

Any suggestion what im missing?

Thanks in beforehand.

Once you successfully installed ERA II, the instructions are pretty easy and clear. I'll just quote the first post of this thread:

Extract all files to "Mods" folder
(If ERA II is installed you will find it in your Heroes III folder).
Load the appropriate WOG Options (found in the readme file).
Play the Game!


Now since you seem new to WoG and ERA let me elaborate some more. What you should do is to extract the HoLv322.rar file as is in the Mods folder. Then, by starting the game you'll notice that the main menu is changed. That means that you did OK.

However, this is not the end. You'll need to check/uncheck the appropriate WoG options. When you start a new game there is a button in the up-right corner called "WoG Options". By clicking it, you get a list of all the new features found in WoG. In order for my mod to work properly there are a few WoG options that are obligatory. The list of these options is found either to the readme file or in the first page of this thread.

Once you've done these two steps you'll be ready to go. There are two more things you might need to consider:

Sometimes the mod manager must be set up right manually. That means that you must find the Mod Manager in the Tools folder and enable my mod to work manually.

Furthermore, in order to play the campaigns, you need the New Objects patch.

If you read the instructions in the first page carefully you won't have a problem.

Thanks once again for the help got a few steps further now. I also wanna point out i've read the instructions around 30 times so im really trying. Hope you can bare with me.

Now when i open H3era it works good i can see the Wog options, however i extraced teh Hol.v322 in the mod folder and i can see it it the mod manager. When i try to enable it this shows:

Please ensure that you have enough rights for creation, deletion or editing "Mods\list.txt" file. The file should not have "read only" attribute. The last unsuccessful call:
FileDelete(C:\Program Files (x86)\Heroes of Might and Magic III Complete\Tools\Mod Manager\..\..\Mods\list.txt)

Also i have the era files installed to my heroes 3 complete, but i don't have anything era related in the specific folder heroes 3 with the vlc file, not sure if it's intended tho.

Move the whole game out from program files folder and will work. In windows versions > XP, you can not modify anything in this folder, because it was not designed to hold games. Move in something simple as C:\Heroes.

a) Install Heroes 3 in C folder. Complete edition or SoD ONLY.
b) Install Era 2.46
c) Download mods.

The mods coming as exe file will be enabled automatically.
The mods coming as rar file will not be enabled after install, to do this you must do it through the mod manager. WoG mod is obligatory to run any other mods. Don't install any other patches from mapsforheroes or whatever. All those patches were converted to era as mods and can be downloaded in era mods thread.  Installing them in their wog 3.58 form will screw your install.

Okey my game is workingn now and i have enabled the Hol v322 and i can see it on the start menu.
The issue i have now is nothing has changed. I played with castle and rampart and it was the same creatures. Also i can't found were to change the wog options for my specific mod wich should be

)Neutral Town must be ON
3)Rampart/Faerie Dragon option must be OFF
3)Troop stack experience must be ON

etc.

Do i need to download and put in the older Hol versions aswell for the older changes?

Appriciate your help and patiance.

You need to turn on "WOGify" option to play with the changes

I don't see that option in the WoG option in game nor mod manager. The HoL is enabled and all options for the WoG is for items, map etc.

I saw the Wogify option and picked it to work with all maps, and tried with random maps aswell but it's still not working,

And for the obligatory settings for the holb32 it says to load the dat file but i can't open that with any program and if i try to load it with mod manager it won't show up.

Thanks again for the patiance and help.

You need to open the dat in the WOG options, there's a button in the bottom of the screen, in the right side.
There you can load a dat with preset WOG options turned on and off. In this case, the options you need to best play HoL

The early mods are probably incompatible.

You'll need to install them as mods, like you did for the latest version, chose one to enable and then disable all the other versions.

And you must load the .dat specific to the version you're playing

Thanks again for all the help i really enjoy the mod!

But i have a question regarding the combat system. When im in combat against creatures i attack the battlefield is always black. Also i always pick settings wich should give me no shadow movement but it never goes away so the battlefield always get rather messy, is there any other setting or fix for this?
