igrik, the wog dialogue mod made my game crash after memory leak, so about every 2 hours of gameplay, when trying to display the dialogue. That was 4 months ago, dunno if a new version was released between?

Hi! Replaying battle is not possible in non-SoD/Hota, because scripts change a lot of global variables (data in memory, map objects meta data), which cannot be universally restored.

Bug with DebugEra folder creation is fixed, sorry for that. It was a mistake.
Bug with scripts not found error is complex. I'm fixing it, rewriting virtual file system implementation. Trying to make it compatible with XP, Win7-10 and Wine.

Latest HD Mod stopped supporting Era. Currently I can advice to use igrik's WoG Native Dialogs plugin. Perhaps, we will be able to cooperate with HD Mod's creator in the future.

Salamandre. I fixed the memory leak errors a long time ago. By this time, the mod was already updated 5-6 times and refined. To date, almost all dialogs have been rewritten (screenshots here)

I see multiple back-to-back posts are discouraged here so I'm combining several followups into one post. If I should have done something else please let me know.

There is still a big problem though: New windows dawn by WoG only don't show up.

Maybe this mod will help you (link)

WoG Native Dialogs mod
(WoG dialogues in native performance)
Main goal: support for high-resolution scaling when playing with an HD mod



Thanks, but as I said, it seems that all I needed to do was change that ERA setting "<Graphics.Mode>" to 5, and everything works. All that really should be changed here is that the "_HD3_DataSettings#default#era.ini" file installed by the HD Mod should have <Graphics.Mode> = 5 instead of 3, and therefore the era.ini in the same dir will have that setting when you first set up HD+Era.

Of course, if that gets changed, some other defaults should also be updated:
<UI.Ext.AdvMgr> = 1,1,1
<UI.Ext.HeroDlg> = 1
<UI.Ext.LvlUpDlg> = 1
<UI.Ext.SwapMgr> = 2
<UI.Ext.TownMgr> = 1,1
<UI.MsgBox.DblClickSelect> = 1

Note that all of the above is working stably for me, but I wouldn't consider it well-tested yet.

Go to ERA: 100+ mods page 61, there is plugin for era replay battle, made by Igrik and he needs ppl to test it, so go ahead and use it


Awesome! Thanks, I didn't think to check in later pages of that thread for new stuff. I see that RerryR noted on Dec. 5 that there was one small possible issue (with end-of-battle scripts). Has anyone noticed that being a real problem with real maps? I imagine that if I don't want to break my game (or cheat) I could just not use the replay feature in such cases, which I expect will be extremely rare.

I'm not totally clear on what this does. (But then again I'm already a bit unclear on scaling in the HD mod.) If my fix (graphics mode 5) works, what is the benefit of your mod?

More generally, about scaling: In the "old days" back in 2012 or so, HD+Era2.4, I ran it on a 1920x1200 27" monitor, and everything looked/worked great. With current HD+Era, things were not so good until I changed the resolution to 1440x900, again running full-screen on the 27". This seems to be OK, and pretty cimilar to what I used to get. Should I have done something else though?

I was going to ask what could possibly require a VFS, but thinking about it now, that does seem an obvious way to deal with clean dir structures for mods, etc.

What do you mean "Latest HD Mod stopped supporting Era"??? It seems to be working fine. Or are you talking about the sort of out-of-date ini file issues I already mentioned, and things like that?

Thanks to all of you for the quick replies!

The purpose of the mod is to support high resolutions from HD (the dialogues are made by standard tools HoMM3) and as a consequence the speed of run this WoG dialogs:

The benefits of my mod can be seen here (screens)
Monitor resolution               1920x1080
Game resolution (in HD mod)   1180x664

Right you are. It's for Mods directory. I was using high level API earlier (FindFirstFileA, LoadLibraryA), now almost moved to the lowest possible level of ntdll.dll (NtOpenFile, NtQueryDirectoryFile, NtQueryInformationFile, etc).

Afair, newest HD mod didn't launch with Era in 32-bits graphics mode. I didn't test the last version with some bug fix, mentioned in changelog though.

Ah... That must be what I ran into, where HDmod defaults to using Graphics.Mode=3 (32-bit MMX) with Era. Changing that to Graphics.Mode=5 has produced a perfect result. I don't know why HDMod has this bad default for Era (along with a few other undesirable ones, which I posted about above), but it's all easily fixed. I'm using the latest HDMod with ERA 2.7.7, and as far as I can see, with these minor tweaks, it runs great!

Edit: I don't see a way to contact the HDMod authoer on his web site. Is he around here? Or somewhere else? HDMod is up to 5.0RC43, and it would be great to get these defaults fixed before the final release of 5.0.
