Patch is out

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned it yet since it's old news now.

Only very minor changes to the AI, but the music skipping has been fixed and they added a combat grid/shadow movement.  The combat grid consists of tiny squares, so I understand why they didn't include it in the first place, although they still should have at least included shadow movement.

I couldn't get it to load with GameUpdate, and many other people also seem to have the same problem.  But it loads fine from 3DO's site:

All I get right now is a page error when I click the link.

My game does not have an update program as far as I can tell.

I think they're getting bombed with traffic.  You will probably have to keep trying.  I got lucky and was able to download it a few hours ago.

Be warned, if you're one of us poor souls who still have to use a dialup connection that it's a 16 mb patch, and took me over an hour to DL. It also is supposed to fix some problems on some of the maps that are on the CD. I turned the grid back off, but the movement shadow is kinda nice ...

There should be an auto-update program in Start --> Program Files --> 3DO --> GameUpdate.  But its server is also busy  at this time...

I can host it but only for a little bit  

You guys can grab it off my ftp (for a limited amount of users... 500 megs worth) if you wish but if the above site is working (which it seems to be) please use that instead.

About it being just north american..

It should work if you've got an european version like me provided it's in english like it is in Norway. I can't download it either:'(.

Well since I am from Norway I have an english version of the game and tried to download the patch....tried long...
But when I tried from you a100pieces it worked thanks a lot !!
But it didn't work on my game,msg: "old file not found, however a file with the same name was found, no updates done, since file content does not match"...
I guess I just have to wait until someone tweaks the patch, or until 3DO gives out an Europeen patch.. ;(

Dam, didn't work

When it gets to campaign editor it gets to 100%, then it says "error, matching file not found". But the file on a100pieces was 15.7 mb not 16.5, I dunno... I don't have an american version though, but it is in english language and I would think it's identical to other versions....

My patch is byte for byte the exact same one from 3d0.

I got that same error at first... then I release maybe it was because i was running the no-cd version of the game.

So I switched the .exe's for the normal .exe, and tried again.  No luck.  Same error, file content does not match.  So I completely uninstalled HoMM4, then reinstalled from CDs without using no-cd patch, and ran the same update, and it worked fine.

I could throw up the campaign editor .exe after a fresh install if you think that's worth a shot...

Please do note that the patch I downloaded is most likely an american version patch.  I have no clue, and am of course making no garuntees it will work for other countries, but if there's a solution, I'm up for trying to figure it out.  

Edit: I added the unpatched heroes4.exe and campaign editor.exe from right after a fresh install if that might help those that are having problems.

For those who are enabled to d/l it, you should try fileplanet.

Apparently swapping with my heroes4.exe and campaign editor fixes patching problems.

However it then makes the game check for the US cd... so then you have loading problems.  So there's no reason to leave those two files up on my server (unless a 1.02 no-cd crack comes before int'l patches), so I'm removing them.
