Laptop...
Laptops, aren't for gaming... Thier structure is so archaic and everything there can go wrong:/

If you can, try install ERA2 on a stacionary PC if there is everything ok.. Then the laptop is main reason..

Probably antivirus could delete some necessary DLL. Try to set compatibility with Windows XP SP 3 for h3era.exe file.

Sorry but it would be nice if you could not copy hardware rumors that do not have any logical reasoning behind them. I use "gaming laptops" exclusively for 7 years already and there are no differences in how things work except integrated/dedicated GPU related stuff and some advanced details (such as print screen button by default giving black images when trying to capture image while running dedicated GPU game, limited capabilities for advanced virtual machines due to how typical laptop hardware supports some features, for example GPU passthrough).

Hello guys, I have a question about the language of ERA2. Is it possible to have it in Polish and with Polish characters?
Right now I have a mix, part of the game (vanilla part) is in Polish but without Polish characters as ź,ł etc.
The part that was modded is in English and it makes gameplay confusing and not pleasant. Even though I do have quite a good level of English.

Do you have any solution for this? Is there a way to patch this?

There was for WOG 3.58f but idk if there is for ERA II.

In Acidcave's Skarbiec you can also find polish fonts as well.

There is a little chance that I am retarded or just inexperienced in modding of Heroes, but I am not able to update Polish Fonts. Can you guide me?

Ah, I forgot. Polish fonts ware never converted from WoG mod to ERA mod.

But, rename czcionki.wog into czcionki.rar extension.
Next, unpack renamed file.
Using MM Archive tool, replace these fonts in h3bitmap.lod file (located in Data folder in your h3era directory).

Or maybe placing all .fnt files into Data folder will work?

MMArchive - tool for browsing HoMM resources.
https://grayface.github.io/wog/#MMArchive

After opening MMArchive.
1. Open button - open h3bitmap.lod
2. From <belka rozwijalna> choose .fnt filter
3. Click at any fnt file.
4. Click Add... button
5. Browse and choose all 9 fnt files you want to replace.

That's all.

I did it in the meanwhile but thanks for the explanation. I was about to say that it doesn't work because in WOG Options there were no Polish Fonts, but in the game they are active. Big thanks to you!
After all those years I am able to enjoy Heroes 3 again! <3

By the way, it is possible to have Polish fonts in WoG Options? (I can live with those missing there but... you know)

No, it's not possible, because WoG options are scripts, not resources. But it's possible to make ERA mod separatelly or update polish translation mod with polish fonts.

there is a bug:
if caster is flagged as war machine, it casts spell with 0 spellpower and doesn't trigger erm action "monster spell"... what could be done to fix it? probably I  could find a workaround, but I prefer having it fixed in era II

edit: it does trigger on !?BG0 but not on !?BG1

Complete modding noob here. I've jumped in quickly and I'm not sure how all this works.

So I have HOMM3 complete version from GOG installed. I installed ERAII and now I have installed the HOMM3 HD. How do I get this all to work together?

What I think I understand: ERAII is a "mod manager"

Is the HOMM3 HD a "mod"?

I can launch the game from the HOMM3 HD "launcher", but when I do that is that enabling the mods to work?

Obviously, my intent is to play the game with the HD upgrade as well as possibly some mods as well.  I'm just not sure how to get it all to work together and then where I'm supposed to launch it all from.  

I'm very confused. Thanks for any help.

ERA is an engine. People make mod for ERA. So one of ERA tools is Mod Manager, where you can enable/disable mods for era.

HD mod is mod/tool/bash for original heroes3, heroes 3 hota and heroes 3 era addons. The aim of hd mod is improving playability and adds some etxra functions to the game. HD mod patches .exe files, so HD mod works with era. So, in ERA mod manager you can enable era mods, and launching h3era.exe via hd mod launcher brings you some extras for era gameplaying.

HD mod is patch-mod which works with ERA/HoTA/SoD/Complete and what it does is allowing to play in greater resolution and in 32bit color mode.

ERA mod manager allows switching contents-mods. there are some of them in the wild. Just installing mod for ERA2 don't need you to have backup to go back (like with original WoG 3.58f) - you can just disable mod, or even to have some of them on and some off, moreover you can set the mod priority. You should go for mods page on the forum. Platform mods are generally not cross-compatible, and map-mods are working only on special map, rest should be more or less compatible.

And if you are asking just that: yes you can play modded ERA wih HD-mod.

Thank you so much for the reply!

I do see that in the HOMM3 HD launcher I can select "h3era.exe" as well as "Heroes3.exe".  I can launch the latter (heroes3.exe) but I get an error message when trying to launch h3era.exe.
