It requires HD+ already, so... >.>

As for HotA, I think it... kinda works? There's, like, one change I make that, to my knowledge, won't work in HotA. But I'm really not sure.


The installer does not recognize the HotA .exe created with the HD mod


Oh, yeah...
What is the exact name of the executable? I'll write it into the patch.

Hmm... I'll have to test it out when I get home.

In any case, what it's trying to do is use FLIPS to patch your .exe file, which you should be able to do manually using the program itself (in the Tools folder).

FLIPS was created to work with ROMS, so you need to change the file type filter from ROMS to "all files"

Edited by BTB at 00:23, 20 Apr 2020.

Open FLIPS
Apply patch
Select AH3M.ips
When prompted to select the .exe, switch the file filter to "all files" and navigate up to find the HotA .exe
That's it

(EDIT: oh, snow me... I see why the installer didn't work for you. Typo on my part! I've updated the download link in the initial post, and it should work for you now)

As for what else is in the update...

Fixes Rissa's starting army
Slightly raised the HP of T1 units
Only Wraiths will have regeneration (necessary so I could give it back to Trolls)
Wights/Pixies are faster (Sprites/Wraiths are the same)
Updated/corrected the descriptions of several spells
Cure is no longer a multi-target spell
Master Genies now cast spells at master level with 10 power (was expert @ 6 power)
Buffed the Shield spell (75%/66%/50% -> 75%/50%/25%)
Changed the scaling for the Cure and Reanimate spells (buffing the former, slightly nerfing the latter)
Replaced the magic immunity on Green/Gold/Red dragons with fire immunity (mostly to allow buffs/Resurrection)
(Gold Dragons also get lightning immunity)
Increased the maximum(/minimum) Morale to +/-6

Fittingly, I live in Houston.

Anyway, assuming you ran HotA .exe... look into your Heroes 3 folder. Is there a Hota 3 .exe backup?

I ran h3hota HD to get the result above
A "clean" HotA can be played with h3hota (without the HD mod, though)

I don't know whether I answered your question or not.

Curiously, running your uninstall returns the message: "I don't know what you did, but you may want to reinstall Heroes 3."

The installer tries to make a backup of the .exe file it's patching. Ergo, if it does not successfully make a backup of the HotA executable, then it didn't patch it successfully, either.

As you can see in the picture I uploaded, Solmyr was half HotA 9specialty) and half AH3M (Air magic).

Yeah... the echo statements still haven't been updated to reflect a variable target .exe file.

At this point, I'm really just gonna have to play around with HotA myself because I don't know what to make of any of this.

Shield is Air shield, so ranged attack damage. 75% damage taken at None/Basic, 50% at Expert, 25% at master.
