DosBox remade Heroes IV: Complete has been bought through GoG.

Installed it + had to put it to 800 x 600 in screen resolution so that it runs nice and smooth on my Windows 10 Home x64 O.S. @ version 1703.

Finished the tutorial quite easily by reminding myself that sometimes, in this edition, there are no roads what-so-ever in order to reach the enemy to be defeated in order to finish that tutorial.

So...Does the Equilibris mod. work for this remake and, do I need to put it in its installed game folder before running the mod's installer?

WHAT?! It is clearly impossible because latest HoMM title with DOS support was Heroes of Might and Magic II: The Price of Loyalty (and Heroes of Might and Magic Compendium compilation with HoMM I and HoMM II including expansion pack released 1997). Beginning from Heroes of Might and Magic II: Gold (1998) HoMM games did not have DOS support (only Windows).

Another option is that is something else. Dosbox is not only for dos. Can read img file. If you made img from windows xp and from HIV, you can play on tablet. Maybe its it.

To answer my own question about the installation of the Equilibris Mod.

I did the download of both necessary .exe files through the Celestial Heavens web-site that contains a direct link to the mod's main page.

It is through the Downloads page that I successfully downloaded the installer file of version 3.5.1(3.51) of this mod. + the original .exe of the Expansion edition of Winds of War dating back 2002.

What I did to do a successful patching of the game is: Go to the main GoG.com folder, Games folder, Heroes of Might and Magic 4 folder and, then, locate the proper executable/application file of the game. Did a Cut and Paste that very same executable to my Downloads folder and, from there, Copy and Paste the unpacked much older file of Winds of War back in the game's main folder. From there, launched the unpacker/installer of the file right where it already is(in the game's main folder).

Once the proper main game file(.exe/application)is in place, Copy and Paste the unpacked mod's main file at the very same place as the main game file is(main folder of the game). Then, launch the unpacker/installer right-a-way. Choose the already determined pathway to locate the place of installation of the mod.(click the install button).

Now, you will get the last installation window that offers you launch the game right after you click on the Finish button. Uncheck that box.
Do not forget to check the box that you wanted the Icon of the game be put on the main Desktop Window of your Windows O.S.

Locate the old Heroes 4:Complete Icon and Delete it. Since, you should have the Blue Shield with a yellow colored Balance like symbol into it as an Icon. Double click on that Icon and, watch the magic happen.

Do not worry about the screen flickering a bit by showing a white box in the middle of the screen for a second or so(it is considered completely normal as it is performing its very first configuration phases). The resolution I got is 1024 x 768 instead of 800 x 600 in automatic Full Screen Mode. Even the sound(voice and music) is playing with pitch perfect effects.

In the lower left corner of the main page of the game, you should see the Equilibris Mod. at version 3.51, Modders: Equilibris Team and, when it was originally completed/released.

All maps of the three versions of the game are fully present and, campaigns also.

Enjoy the renaissance of Heroes of Might & Magic 4 onto the latest of an O.S.= Windows 10 Home/Pro Edition @ version 1703 or earlier.

You just described the installation procedure of the Equilibris mod, nothing more. I'm still not sure that this 'exe' is original, one thing is known, it was taken from HEROES.OF.MIGHT.AND.MAGIC.IV.WINDS.OF.WAR-DEViANCE scene release.

Again: how it can be related with DosBox?

...after installing the Equilibris Mod., no signs of the DosBox window popups.

As proof, here is the link to the Equilibris Mod.'s web-page:Equilibris Modification's web link
Used the Winds of War expansion modification file.

On this note: My IObit Anti-Malware Fighter utility program detected a false positive of a threat on the H4_mod.exe of this Equilibris Mod. Just Cancel the removal of such threat. This aging programming of a binary language might no longer be seen as a recognized standard game coding. Dalai might have to look into this a.s.a.p.

I guess that's the case. But I still don't have original CD with English release (neither US nor UK) of Winds of War expansion except German one (which is protected with Safedisc v2.51.021). Moreover, I am almost 100% sure that UK release of Winds of War is also copy-protected. Only US release is questionable.

I would rather make the HD mod by myself, equ. team might never finish it. Also I would prefer to use hd mod without the equlibris gameplay changes.

So how did they manage to show adventure map in different aspect ratio?
I dont really care about widescreen towns or battlefields, I only want the widescreen adventure map like in HoMaM 3 HD
