Heroes 3 Sleep/Wake Bug?!

Hi everyone,

I've just run into an issue with the sleep/wake feature in HOMM 3 for the first time ever. I rarely use this feature, but somehow started a new map with my starting hero set to "sleep" as default. I continued to play anyways, although it was slightly annoying having to select my hero at the beginning of each turn instead of it just starting there. I also noticed that once I ended my turn, my hero's movement bar was replenished before it came back to my turn, which typically remains empty until it comes full circle back to my turn.

Anyways... The real problem came about 2 months (game time) into the map, where I had drained my hero's movement fully, and ended my turn. As the other AI players' turns cycled through, I saw my movement bar replenish. THEN, after the last AI player's turn, MY hero walked to shore (he was about 5 tiles away), summoned a boat (he was skilled and equipped to do so), and GOT IN!

A lovely little message popped up saying "Gelare is already in a boat", and even though the text box had a check mark, I could not click it and there was no way for me to bypass it. I had no other choice after repeated attempts at reloading but to abandon the map.

Anyone have any idea how this happened or is this just a weird rare glitch in the game?

The real problem is you continuing to play for two months with an inactive hero instead of pressing "W" once and get everything as normal. I think the game just avenged itself.

I don't know any human who did such a weird experiment.

Hi Salamandre,

I suppose I should have clarified. Although I never tried pressing "W", I did click the tent/trumpet toggle repeatedly, and it continually reset to sleep each time I ended my turn. I was enjoying the map and my hero/stats/artifacts too much to just start over so I just played...

A true sleepwalking hero!

Apparently the AI thought the hero was theirs to control. And the thing that happened was that it controlled it, but since it was still technically "your" hero, the message popped for you - while on Autopilot. And since there is no way for you to click an AI's message, nor for the game to continue without a dialog being closed, it's just stuck there.

Also these kind of bugs (and many others) are common if you auto-play your turns on Heroes IV (a debug feature)

Hi, Jerbear89.
1) You may try to use some older savegame and continue from it.
2)I dont know what is the version of the map you play. But if it is an often used map in Heroes 3, without changes from your current Heroes3 version, you may try to copy a savegame from the Folder in that Heroes 3 and paste it in other version of Heroes 3. For Example- copy a savegame from Heroses 3 Armageddons blade to Heroes 3 Complete. You may try several turns until you manage to continue after the day of appearing of the bug. After that you may copy the last savegame, and continue to play at your first version of Heroes 3.
Sometimes in some big battle appears a  bug that crush the game. So the second option is the ONLY option to continue the game.
