Well you are the only one that can't install it from all the people here, so I would recomend you to improve your computer-using capabilities, seeing as you complain too in your signature that this is not the first time it happens for you to be unable to run a game in win10...

The executable of my game is just a heavily modified Equilibris version, which itself is just a modified H4 winds of war, so there is no way this wasn't your error,
not mine

So please don't complain idly and discourage people by saying "it doesn't work". This works exactly the same as Equilibris. In fact, both can be installed at the same time, and run separately with no problems, as in my computer -_-

I'm pretty sure he has something wrong with his system. I installed it just fine and it works as it should without any additional effort.

Luc. If old H4 works and Equilibris too this mod works too. Nimo didnt edited dlls, game runnig alghoritms etc. Its only graphic, music and gameplay changing. And only replacing. All game works completly the same way. So first install H4 next Equlibris.

Maybe to clarify one little thing: You do NOT need Equilibris for this mod. Only H4 with the official addons of Gathering Storm and Winds of War


Edit: Only if I had time to play

Maybe wrong words. Install second copy H4 and check work or not. Next instal Equlibris. If all of it works this mod work too, Because is the same. I dont thought he must have Eq only to check.

Thanks a lot for your concerns and, did all that already.

Sent a PM to Nimostar a good 3 days ago and, he did not reply to it.

Since, your posts have been greatly appreciated, people. So...it is only aesthetic fancying he did on the original Equilibris Mod then. Well...OK.

Note: Though you believe that the Equilibris Mod. works the same way, I must disagree. You still have to replace the year 2004 Winds of War's .exe with the old 2002 Winds of War's .exe in order to properly install the original Equilibris Mod.(v.3.5.1).

Once again, thank-you very much for these extra pointers based on Nimostars mod.

Have a great time playing Heroes 4: Equilibris everyone.

I believe the term is 'modmod' - these are quite common in many genres, legendary Civ4: Fall from Heaven has a bunch.

Gonna try this out... definitely looks promising. H4 really had the most promising formula imho... its mix of rpg and tbs is outstanding as is the story/music... Only sad that it was rushed the way it was...

Luc ITS STILL THE SAME GAME!!! NIMO DIDINT EDIT NOTHING IN GAME LAUNCHER! Only txt graphic and gameplay! If game run Nimo mod too. As you see in other people. Only maybe if you have gog version they maybe edited something to prepare game to win 7 and higher. In this case may be error.

It is a Gog configured and set-upped game. The only way it can be done from here is: using a Windows Installer program in order to force the game to be self installed into that folder of Heroes 4: Complete. Windows, as of right now, requires an installation key to use as a registry entry in order to bypass the Gog installation into the registry of Windows. In other words, to literally replace the previous installation key with your new installation key.

The mod's .exe does not overwrite the Winds of War's .exe main file. It is a completely new .exe file that wants permission to use the whole content of files of the same game.

Could be a new safe-guard coming straight from Microsoft onto the added security now, imposed onto the Windows O.S. I noticed such changes when Windows Defender started to moderate whatever web protection apps you want to use instead of their own.

Glad that you got the part about my Heroes4: Complete installation from GoG's Galaxy game client.

It's not only "aesthetic". First of all, I did contact original Equi team and collaborated in their forum. Secondly, the changes from Original H4 to equilibris are like 10 times less than the changes from Equilibris to Greatest mod. All factions have been changed, creatures have been changed, lineups have been changed, trasures have been changed, artigacts have been changed... magics have been changed, heroes have been changed, all of this influences gameplay greatly.

Equilibris aims to just balance a few details in the game and add some objects; while this was done masterfully, thus achieving a more balanced H4 gameplay, it is still just "vainilla" h4 with all the same towns, heroes, lineups, spells and creatures.

The Greatest Mod aims to completely change and enchance the gameplay experience as a whole, replacing all that existed for not just mere balance tweaks, but totally renewed and different new visions.

The community will judge whether this had succedeed or not, not the opinionated guy that can't even run the game and yet thinks entitled to say what it is or isn't despite never even having played it

So having explained that...

Well I think you agev stepped on your own foot. You have DRM measures in your OS that prevent the .exe of the game to access the necessary Windows files to run.

Run the damn .exe as Administrator (win 7 compatibility mode) and then you are set.

If not, than it is indeed te gog version. Install CD version and that's it. As you have already bought the game, you shoudn't feel any guilt at torreting it, should it be unavailable from other means. Not like the original creators can profit anyways since their company went nakrupt and the rights were long sold.

I do not normally reply to Pms soon, ask anyone here. I take my time. Sometimes months, and they did not complain like you...


Also, don't you think it's a bit hypocritical to insult my work, which I share for free with the community, then demand fast "customer service"?

Anyways, there's your solution.

Heroes 4 is still not worth playing just like Heroes 2.

To me only Heroes 3, 5, 6 and, 7 does the job at giving me a good time playing. Only Heroes 1, 2 and, 4 aren't really worth playing for me at this time.

As a full time gamer, I get to play up to 45 types of games that are both on the PC and the Xbox 360(renewed one from 2015).

Just thought of owning as much as I could and, prove that they could work on my aging 6 cores machine. The best part is: I'm not even an enthusiast of PC hardware and, top notch DX12 based real life emulating games.

Mod Note: no insulting of other members

Heroes 5 upto Heroes 7 are the only Windows 10 Home/Pro games playable without major Modding to make them playable to such awesome modern O.S.

Ok. So you don't like H4 and have no intention of playing the mod. Puzzles the mind why you are here, then.

Then, you are openly just trolling.

So please get out?

I'm not engaging with your PMs just to play your little insult games. Grow up, how old are you? Because you sound like thirteen. So go play Call of Duty or something and vent out your instincts on VoiP...

I am just here to answer questions and take suggestions on the mod, and as a hobbyst, not to fight with other netizens. There's more than enough of that on facebook and the like.

Nimo cant help you because he is not a Win 7 and higher creator. He is not Gog creator too... This mod didnt edit game runnig process. Try administrator mode, try Win xp compability. Close firewalls etc... Its OS problem. I cant help. I use Win xp only.

Works fine with GOG it seems. Thanks for all the amazing work!

Like I wrote above - having no problem with the GOG version, but the game is a bit slugish at time. Now I just reinstalled H4 and don't think I've played it before on W10 so perhaps this is just an issue with H4 in general. Might work better if running with compatibly mode.

Balance is.... interesting. Some line ups are very imaginative imho. As the old-school Warlock I am I kinda miss Medusae but oh well.. having trogs in Asylum is very nice though.

Again: thanks for all of your hard work! H4 has a fantastic formula... one can only dream of what it could have become if it had been designed in a way that's slightly better suited for moding (or if the source code was released...)...

I make it in win 7 64 bits now, no problem, games not even installed but rather use it portable in a separate disc most of the time, computer runs them fine. I cannot guarantee win 8 or 10 but other people say they run fine.

Also H6 and 7 are full of bugs...

Medusae in Necro was a quite hard decision for me; eventually I settled for that because otherwise the Necropolis town would have been completely out of archers, and Dungeon already had two (and both Slimes and Beholders fitted much better the color/theme scheme of Dungeon)

You are welcome, eventually we will try that (getting the source code) too.

I may do a mod with other new lineups and different towns eventually, but first I want to perfect stuff like UI, magic schools and more map object variations on this one.
