Troubleshooting & new possible ideas/suggestions for the masters out there

Hello everyone

I created this thread to basically help me with my Heroes 3 experiences.  Sometimes finding answers in these threads takes forever cause there have been so many replies.  This thread to me specifically was made,

1) to help me with questions and difficulties that I may come by from time to time. My basic understanding of programming or troubleshooting is virtually zero (for all intensive purposes)  

and

2) I have some ideas on game concepts that i can illustrate with graphics to put out there that others can use to make heroes better for everyone.  Ideas I'm good at, implementation not so much.  

Usually I don't have that many questions, so I hope its no burden for those passing by  

I'll start this thread off with a question:

I've recently downloaded Heroes 3 complete from GOG and I'm using windows 10.  After installation, an error prompts reading that "Heroes of might and magic 3 has stopped working." This occurs after I try to launch the game.

Here's the list of things I've tried to remedy the solution and have failed:

June2010 DIrectX
adjusted various compatibility versions
imagecfg


I can't figure out what else the problem could be

Run as admin? Now I have very little experience with Windows 10, so I don't know if it's possible. Also, I know GOG has forums, did you check and see if other people reported the issue you're seeing? Maybe those threads hold a solution that works for you.

Yes I checked their forums and the advice from their site plus the feedback from others was not fruitful.  

..and yes windows 10 is what I have, so I'm guessing there's some related issue there.  I tried running the game as administrator and changing the compatibility of the game to windows 7, but still no luck.  

Someone suggested on Gog to download heroes 3 HD mod.  the game works with that mod, but I can't play random maps, ROE or AB.

what's the link? I tried to look, but Gog doesn't have a specific heroes 3 patch or "universal update" on my order screen of the game

This idea has been going through my head...can anyone make an artifact custom menu like this in the map editor screen?  Primarily for all those not so tech savy people like me who have a hard time getting the programming codes to work.  Again, a talent beyond my scope, but the notion isn't

Provided you did find someone to do this for the mapeditor, it would still do nothing because this has to be coded in heroes3.exe.

Yes of course.  That was an implied given

This would work for VCMI and ERA. But SOD and HOTA are hardcored in their exes.

Just for my understanding, that means for SOD and HOTA, they cannot receive input from a map editor that's outside their exes?
