Chronic Peripetia H4 help!

I recently started playing H4 again saw this map recommended on that forum. However I am stuck. The AI has ridiculously large armies that I cannot touch. I cannot reach my underground dwelling and I don't know what to do. I am in month 5 with a level 28 archmage, 2 level 27 lords and my main army has 42 Dragon Golems 247 genies and a little more.

The orange player has a secondary army with 240+ Archangels(I berserked the army down to that) and a main with a legion each of AA's and champions + multiple level 36-37 heroes.

I could really use some help.

What are you going to do with Dragon Golems? They have no interesting abilities that could help you creep.
First of all, month 5 is probably too late, second, you should be farming hidden underground area by now, including Barbarian artifact set. On this map it gives huge boost and some garrisons can be taken with hero only.

Well I could build the dragon factory much easier so I did even though I prefer Titans. And I haven't been able to find a way underground that isn't blocked by quest gates when I get there. Like the area the green tower leads to and just tells me to find another way underground.

You know, at first day there's a dialog box that can give you a secret tip I noticed it only on second try, though.

If it about taking their starting town for 20 days will kill them, I haven't been able to reach anyone else.

Could you give me some tips? I had a death in my family last month and my frustration level is up and memory down.

There's a secret (hidden) portal near your main castle that leads to rich underground area with many bonuses. And strong guards.

Could you be more specific? If I haven't found it by now, I probably never will. The only secret with portals I have seen is that all of the one way portals go to the same useless place no matter which gate I choose.

I don't have H4 now to try it, but it was possible to view hidden teleports with "Kingdom overwiev" or some other way.

Ok, I finally found it. I am furious that it didn't show on the editor where I spent over an hour looking for it. I guess I will start over in a while. Thanks.

Are you playing at maximum difficulty?

Ok I restarted took most of the stuff from the underground(couldn't handle 400k goblin nights) and eliminated the surface AI by taking their starting towns and they were too stupid to retake them.(actually being able to defeat enemy armies would be much more fun)

However when I try the same thing with green armies of 9k megagdragons, Black Dragons, catapults and more show up. WTH? How am I supposed to win this map?

At the time I tried this map on impossible I noticed the enemy had some very big army near my castle,while my army was insignificant.
Now with some tips from this thread I can try again.

What you do is spell, Artifacts, heroes and armies? Writes to all. Potion of Mana? Example for random lvl 1 monsters min 46000 PEONs ja max 46500 PEONs, you need slow and teleport (I'm old strenght of homm3) (( Yes true it's 1 lvl, when sometimes appears medusa )) Ok Army Properties 1250 orge magi, General 38lvl, 750 Thunderbirds, 1000 cyclopes and 500 behemoths (you need morale, speed then what you want to spell). Army Properties 3x17345 efreeti (you need Potion of Mana and teleport). Army Properties 205 black dragons (you need 2 heroes and 3lvl '205' = black dragons vs 3lvl. Spells Animate Dead, Cat Reflexes, Create Illusion, Dragon Strenght, Guardian Angel, Martyr, Summon Mantis, Teleport and Vampiric Tour. Let's hope it will benefit from something and others can to help you. I must download it and try to play.
