Hey. Ive been looking for a mod like this to make HOMM3 work without random crashes on Win7.

But i tried the Mod and it wont start from the launcher. I just get an error that it cant start from there, and thats it.


This is your post in original thread. Can you write the error message that you receive? Also, try running launcher as administrator (if you are using win 7 or win 8).

Yes im sorry. It was a lousy post to start with.


I have a Win7, 64-bit system, home edition proffesional. And I downloaded the HD Mod then tried to run it as admin.

All I get is an error "You should run HD3_Launcher.exe first after homm3 hd install, but if you ran it with no effect then run it as admin"


Which I did, and no effect. so im abit lost

Well... I didnt want to. It was alittle embarrasing


I thought being the admin on my computer automaticly ran every program as admin too. But it doesnt.
So I had to install it correctly, then right-click the program and select "run as admin"


So yeah... a small mistake from my side. What seemed as such a hard fix, was not.


-----

But im having another weird problem. Is it normal that you cant use map editor after the install of this mod?

I can run the map editor now, but if I try to do anything on a map or even make a new one I just get this message that I cant save it. Doesnt say why either.

Do you have that problem?

no, i don't have that problem but you may be unable to save the map if you didn't run it as admin cause of priviliges.

Okey. then I must just ask this retarded question to eliminate some problems..

- Can I use map editor from the meny that pops up when you use the game in the cd-room?

- If no, from where can I find the "real" map editor? Cant seem to find it in the files..

don't thank me, it's my job to help people, and by the way, feel free to post any problems you encounter, and here is a tip about making maps: make the scene sound as natural and random as possible.
and here are some tips i gave, take a look if you haven't already see it:
Quote:
TIP N1: there is a common mistake for a beginner to avoid: when you have a hero that doesn't have a spell book, inside a town with a mage guild in it(the level of the guild does NOT matter.) be sure to buy a spell book before you get out, cause if you didn't it's gonna cost you precious time later.

TIP N2: if you are fighting a huge army, and are unsure of you winning, or just want to explore different ways to beat the army, just save and go test, simple!

TIP N3: there is an object on the map called the "pyramid" which if you visit and defeat the golems guarding it, you are awarded a high level spell(most times if not all of them), but if you don't have the wisdom skill with the level required you will LOSE the spell. and another mistake to avoid, don't revisit the pyramid as it will decrease your luck greatly(i will explain about luck/morale lately if you don't know about it.)

TIP N4: if you have visited the pyramid and the spell got lost or you got it, there is a useful but simple tactic: greatly reducing your opponents luck if he visits it. you have to use map objects to your own advantage.

TIP N5: there are secondary skills that the hero can get, the list is too long for me to put here but here is a fact: there are 3 levels of secondary skills: basic, advanced and expert. once you get a secondary skill, level up then select the same skill again it will rise to a higher level. basic --> advanced --> expert.

TIP N6: there are 2 things that can be usefull for your hero:
Morale and Luck.

morale can have a minimum level of -3 and a maximum one of 3.

Morale: morale of level -1 or less will result in some of your troops freezing in battle, not always through it just depends on the chance.
the lesser the number than -1, the more the chance to freeze in battle. but morale can also have a positive effect: it can give your troops another move if it's level is 1 or more, the chance is higher the higher the value than 1. and morale can also be 0: no positive or negative effects.

Luck: if luck is 1 or more it can make some of your troops inflict DOUBLE damage in combat, the higher the value than 1, the higher the chance. it also can be 0 where it doesn't have a positive effect.

TIP 7: right-clicking on a spell or generally a thing from the game will show you information about it, can be quite useful for beginners.

TIP 8: you can place guards inside mines to prepare a trap for the opponent. this is how it is done: visit a flagged mine again and put some troops inside it, or if you just flagged your mine and do not wish to waste movement, press space.

TIP 9: if you have gone through a 2-way monolith and found an unpleasant surprise, press SPACE to go back.

TIP 10: if you are unsure of wish town you should play since you are a beginner, play stronghold, it has good units, and they are the CHEAPEST! but i wish to tell you something: playing towns depends on the type of the map(not large or small, rich or poor) through i don't have the exact details of this, ask someone with knowledge of the topic if you wish to know.

NOTICE: i'm not a pro, but i'm just helping out fellow beginners, hope the tips helped

and you're welcome.
