Warfare change.

Hello, I recently downloaded ERA gaming build v1.36.037.
I noticed Warfare skill no longer saves secondary skill slots and also takes up space with First Aid and Artillery. Is there a way to make it take up one secondary skill slot like it used to like in a previous build?

Disable "Secondary Skills Scroll" mod - bug is because of that

Here's a question I would greatly appreciate help with.

Ever since ERA 3.2, I've been unable to generate maps larger than 144 X 144. I eagerly downloaded 3.3, which contains a variation of the same problem. When I open the map editor, I get an error message, "Exception EConvertError in module h3wmapedpatch.dll at 00008B6A. The map editor does open after that, but I don't have access to any of the larger sizes. (In 3.2, error messages vary more, and sometimes thee isn't one at all, but I still get the same result.

The in-game random map creator shows the larger sizes through G, but even if I select one and have a template that supports the larger sizes, the map created is always 144 X 144.

I thought I might be able to go back, use my 3.04 installation to create maps and then use them with the newer version. No luck there, either. Apparently, the map format has changed. The map editor can't open the older 252 X 252 maps, and the game opens them but with bizarre results.

To answer the obvious question, yes, I did enable the XXL mod. To answer the next most obvious question, I've been testing and getting these results in the newest gaming build with nothing else added yet. I install the newest build into a clean HoMM3 Complete folder.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

It's good to know I'm not completely alone. I worried it might be some unique issue on my system since nobody else was reporting it. But perhaps there aren't that many people playing huge random maps at the moment. Whatever the issue is, it doesn't seem to be affecting anything else.

UPDATE: the newest version of the gaming build, which includes ERA 3.3.4, is halfway to the solution of this problem. The in-game generator now creates 252 X 252 random maps (from the templates with the XXL prefix). That's a big improvement. However, the map editor is still stuck on 144 X 144 and rejects the larger maps created by the in-game generator. So somebody can now use 252 maps but has very limited customization.

ANOTHER UPDATE: It was a pleasant surprise to find that version of map editor that comes with the full version of the gaming build supports sizes up through 252 X 252, just as 3.0.4 and earlier used to do. I'm not sure of this is because the full version has an updated map editor, unleashed plugin, or something else--or whether since I download the light edition, both have been updated in some small way. Whatever the case, the fix is much appreciated. Edit: It appears the full version is v1.36.042 (12.02.2021). The light version was the slightly earlier v1.36.041 (09.02.2021). I assume that a .042 light version would also have the map fix.

I do have a suggestion for the future. I'm not sure why the team does the whole light version/full version split. The full version is always harder to find a link for (I understand why) but also has features the light version doesn't. Wouldn't it be good to have a generally available version that includes all the mods and features? Am I missing some reason that the current arrangement is better?

For some reason my ERA stutters a lot. I don't have this with Hota or Succession Wars mod or any other Heroes 3 + HD-Mod combinations. It happens when moving my hero over the adventure map. I tried different HD-Mod settings, but even with lesser quality graphics this still happens.

Send save+debug folder.
Did you try openGL in HD mod?
Start a game with only WoG core and test again, maybe it is caused by some mod.

I tried pretty much every option, including openGL. I use only the mods provided in this build plus Fred's objects patch. I'll try maybe deactive things. I remember I had this issue before when I installed this ERA build, but I didn't do anything about it back then and just uninstalled it.

I sent you a message with a save and the debug folder.

Hello,

I'm trying to run ERA but I'm getting the error message "ResourceManager::GetText could not find the "text" resource "campbttn.txt".

Any ideas what causes this?

I checked your save and I don't see any lags. Hero walks okay.
Judging from your Debug folder everything seems okay. You are using ERA 3.0.4.
The newest version is 3.3.4 (I use that), you can try to update to this version and update HD mod aswell. Maybe it makes a difference, I can't say.

Take the ENG full version and install it in a new folder.

@venko6h looks like some files are missing in your installation. Also try the link above and make a new installation.

Thank you! Seems that ERA was messed up somehow with the original version of HOMM3 which I installed separately.
Anyway, I uninstalled everything, installed the game from the link you gave and now it runs.
