Request for help with the Era 1.8 Installer

Hello.

I recently discovered the Era executable and I though I'd give it a try. So I downloaded the English version, and ran the _INSTALL_ENG file. It told me 1 file had been copied, but that was all it did. My HOMM3 installation was seemingly unaffected. I see there is something called an ExeBuilder in one of the folders, but I'm not quite sure how it works.

Could anyone help me get it working, or point me towards some solid documentation in English?

Thank you for your time.

If it says that one file was copied then it's all right. There should be a file named Era 1.8.exe (or something similar) in Heroes 3 root directory and this is the new executable.
It doesn't add any visual changes or something - the changes are in the code: mostly ERM handling and some performance tweaks.

So if I want WoG I'll have to install that separately? I understood Era as a repackaging of WoG, with some updates thrown in.

What does era change, then?

first you need to install WoG and then instal Era. I recall something about one missing file but i can't remember the name and maybe it's fixed by now.

list of changes (i am not sure if this list is complete)

fixed some incompatibilities with old scripts
improved colored dialogs functionality
some new programs were added into package
some new triggers were added
fixed CPU usage bug
if a script error occurs it doesn't break saved game
crc checks in exe file have been disabled
removed limit of function numbers

The main change - ERA allows to use external dll-libraries, such as plugins for enlarging number of monsters, dwellings and artifacts.
Also, ERA based on the TE exe, so it allows using some great ERM-commands such as IF:L, DL and TM.

You should unpack the archive to the game root folder and then run bat-file. No need to copy the generated exe. It will be generated in the right folder.

So - do I need the 3.58f script update? I've heard it's buggy.

You don't need the scripts update, it's really buggy.
