Ah actually Bersy, I'm still having the .pcx issues here. Crashes each time.
I installed it from a fresh copy. In order to get it past the first error, I copied the Buttons.dll file from the EraPlugins folder to the WoG folder. To fix the next issue, I needed to hit the "Fix Campaign Editor" option.
Now, I'm not sure what else can be done.
It did successfully create debug info in the debug folder though on each crash if you can take a look at it to understand it better.

Debug.zip

Sorry to rain this in right after your update, I just really want to be able to play it again lol

Everything is fine in the following log, but installation is not clean, many third-party files are present. Please, delete at least the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete\buttons.dll
C:\Program Files (x86\)GOG.com\Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete\WoG\buttons.dll

But better install over clean H3.

What concerns the second long, please delete:
D:\Games\HoMM 3 Complete ERA 2.81\buttons.dll

And try again or reupload log.

I had these tries:

1. Run only wog mod. Random maps can be created. Game runs well. BUT crashes when clicking show random maps in the scenario manager.

2. Add fast animation mod above wog. Game cannot be initialized.

3. Add another mod below wog. Game runs ok. BUT the script in the mod is not loaded. For example, it is supposed to pop a dialogue box when clicking x key. But it does not happen.

The 3 logs:

Thank you.

Ah, I see. In your reports there is no NtQueryDirectoryFile call.
Maybe it's related to this report.

Do you all have Windows 10 installed?

Bersy, on my side it can load only one mod properly (and it have to be wog).
if I enable more than one, lodmanager is confused (it says some of files from WoG are missing).
also there is a problem with buttons dll. the game wants it in wogbuttons.dll but it's located in wogeraplugnsbuttons.dll
(you probably forgot changing path one or other side)

I Hope it helps.

EDIT: I have win10 but not the  latest update.

Seems the same problem. NtQueryDirectoryFile interceptor is not called. Can I connect to you using TeamViewer and check a few things in debugger?

Hi guys!
If you have difficulty installing the ERA version 2.8.1, try this installer Full Setup ERA 2.8.1 Eng (on GOG).
Attention!!! Specify the installation path (only in an empty folder).

Please let the report start the game or not!!!

Ok, you will need Olly Debugger 2.0 from official site. Run h3era.exe
CTRL+G NtQueryDirectoryFile, set here hardware breakpoint.
CTRL+G FindNextFileW. Set here normal breakpoint.

What should be checked:
1) After Era's library is loaded and code is run (press F8 two times), or after exception/assertion error, CTRL+G ntdll.NtQueryDirectoryFile and check the first opcodes of function. There should be JMP some stub, if you follow it, there will be
Image 1
Image 2
Image 3
Code should lead to vfs.dll, then it's ok.

Besides, NtQueryDirectoryFile should be triggered multiple times.
Also, kernelbase.FindNextFileW must call NtQueryDirectoryFile
FindNextFileW start
FindNextFileW middle

By unknown reason on quite a few Win 10 installations (not mine on virtual pc) NtQueryDirectoryHook is either not installed, installed on some stub, installed on some shadow dll copy or never called.

FWIW, this worked perfectly on Win10 for me, although I only ran an unmodded game and started a random map...

Oh yeah, I forgot I put those extra files in with every clean installation. I removed them and the buttons.dll located in C:Program Files (x86)GOG.comHeroes of Might and Magic 3 CompleteWoG
There was no buttons.dll located in C:Program Files (x86)GOG.comHeroes of Might and Magic 3 Completebuttons.dll.

I originally copied buttons.dll from C:Program Files (x86)GOG.comHeroes of Might and Magic 3 CompleteModsWoGEraPlugins to C:Program Files (x86)GOG.comHeroes of Might and Magic 3 CompleteWoG so it would start. For whatever reason it wouldn't launch without buttons.dll in that location.

So here is my log.txt with a fresh copy of Heroes 3 Complete from GoG and Era 2.8.1 with the default mods, minus Quick Savings because I don't really like it much, plus a collection of other mods. I have all of my personal stuff put aside.

log.txt

Again, sorry for taking so long. Work sucks

XEricSin, Drake, thank you. Delay is not a big deal )
I see the problem (one system function is not intercepted correctly many Win 10 systems only). I will improve VFS tester and will ask to run it again, unless majaczek gives some screens from olly debugger, at least NtQueryDirectoryFile contents.
