Decrease complexity level of Phoenix or turn off Capitals options if there is any in wog settings.

Hi,

sorry if this came up somewhere else already, but i coudnt find any faq, troubleshooting or forumposting about this for 3 days, so i decided i just ask.

so i tried to run Phoenix Mod with the HiRez Mod together and it wont work. As soon, as i go into the Cityscreen and leave again, it crashes.

I Installed HOMM3 complete.

After that i installed WOG + Era II from here http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=37208

At this point i install Phoenix mod 3.61 from this thread: http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=37495

Works perfect (but looks awful on a 24" screen ...).


If i start it now per HD3Launch.exe of the HiRez Mod it just crashes after the Cityscreen. If you want, i can post Errors from the Logs of ERA and HiRez-mod.

I know that there are .bat files for installing Hirez compability. The problem here is, first it says something about invalid numbers of parameters. Ok, its probaly because the Heroes folder got blank characters in it. So i renamed it and now it cant find btntable.txt.
If i use the btntable.txt from the download of this thread, it runs through withhout errors, but the crash still occurs.

If i use that old 32 bit patch for HoMM3 it works fine in window mode, but 800x600 is a bit too small. Also iam missing the features of the highrez mod then.

Well, looking forward for some help and sorry for the grammar, english isnt my nativ language.

Hi. Seems that you try running Russian beta version of HD. 3.10 has bugs if I remember correctly, could you try 3.11 beta rus? Delete the old HD first.
If it does not work, I'll install mod myself and will find the appropriate solution. Thanks for understanding.

I tried HD 3.11 and it worked ok. So far I'm reposting your problem on wog forum so that baratorch could suggest something. Meantime it would be nice if you upload HD_CRASH_INFO.txt.

Thanks for looking into it.

(wasnt there a upload function, btw?)

Edit: Just a minor thing, but i get sometimes a random ERA error and crash of the game. It happens always after i finish a turn (at the moment, i take over after the computer players). After i start and reload the autosave, it works normally. Its not really bothersome, but, well.

Sorry, but debugging of 3.61 version is not performed. I hope some day we will release 3.63 or 3.64 in English.

Wow, what a mod. Came back to heroes again to find huge developments.

It's dauntingly complex from reading the manual, but once I booted up the game I did pretty well. Just played a single-player scenario and got my ass handed to me (shouldn't have picked "Veteran" difficulty...)

I'm going to have to forget everything I've known about the original/WoG HoMM3 to learn to play this -- but it's worth it. Battles are tactically much more interesting, and the gameplay feels a lot less luck-based.

Question. When you use mithril to double a mine's production for a week... does it run out more quickly?

*EDIT* another question: Should I use Rebalanced Creates from WoG with Phoenix Mod? Or is it not a good idea? What about Enhanced Monsters?

Hi. Thanks for review.

You can use it safely. Days remain the same.
What's about other options enhancing creatures, I would not recommend to turn them on.

Thanks Bersy, I'll do so.

I found 3 pretty serious bugs, by the way.

The "dismiss all creatures in town" button is the same one WoG uses for enhancing the town hall using mithril. It took my money, but also empties all my dwellings.

When selling artifacts from my backpack, it gives me money, but after that I have minus several 100k/mil.

Arrow towers actually heal enemy troops (or mine). Dunno what this is all about, but it's really really common.

Use mouse to close the dialog, not "enter" key.

Turn off armory skill in wog settings.

Thank you.
I have to say that the AI is a lot better than in original HoMM3 or WoG. I can win, on beginner (map settings = hard), but not often. Then again I've only been playing this mod of the game for a few days.

Well, I've played some more and it seems I just can't win on medium-sized maps with multiple opponents, specifically maps where I can't reach the AI early (because there are monoliths, garrisons, quest guards or oceans blocking the way).

I'm not bad at HoMM3, but this is getting frustrating. Having bought most my creatures and having a good supply of artifacts, and I still get my ass beaten by an AI hero with twice the army and 50% better stats. Game after game. If I don't beat them down early on, I'll never catch up. What to do, what to do...

It could be something in my WoG settings, though?

I'm playing at map difficulty hard, Phoenix difficulty beginner. Without henchmen, without creature stack experience. Rebalanced creatures, but not the enhanced ones. Any other settings that could be relevant here? Am I making my life harder by accident?

If you play with Warrior class, use several rules:
1) Improve only Attack primary skill. Always, until it reaches 99.
2) Learn Healing and Artillery skills as soon as possible. First Aid Tent resurrects creatures, ballista is a a powerful shooter.
3) Choose specialty in 1-2 level creature, select Attack or Speed bonus according to your current needs.
4) Learn Inspiration skill and use it every time in battle.
5) Buy Death Hand, killing 7-8 level creatures will become handy.
6) Get secondary hero, preferably mage with Earth specialty. Anti-magic/Dead troops + Death ripple kill everything if wisely used.
7) Train economist (CTRL+LMB on specialty icon to turn hero into an economist). Even with learning skill + visiting stones of knowledge you'll be able to make a 15-20 level hero, who will increase income of the capital at least by 4000 when staying in garrison.

How to turn off these interface changes? I really don't like fast battle creature moving, no new day sounds and other changes.
