[Project] Heroes Chronicles - Fully Compability HD mod

Hello everyone ,

I'am main author project Heroes Chronicles - Fully Compability HDMOD for SoD (installator, launcher chronicles, graphic, animation etc.), but in version polish (never last chapters fully release in polish) . Of course polish community in forum help me in example: hard version campaign, graphics too, etc. - Fully Description who did what in Main Topic: https://www.forum.acidcave.net/topic.php?TID=3892&page=1 Newest Version: https://www.vault.acidcave.net/file.php?id=619

So my question generally . Are many people interested in Heroes Chronicles in english version? Examples Fully compatible with HDMOD and SoD: Allison and Tarnum doesn't die, if loses: Time tree Month and Tarnum doesn't die, artifacts only you take when all bots die, etc.

Project had two version for all campaigns (Standard and Hard -> example Wasteland: Tarnum doesn't use magic - blocking ), intro, animations, lists, lectors, previews, trening, all pictures and very a lot of more.

I told actually project support only polish language (all texts), but you can install for english SoD, so H3 english working, but you must radio button "ANGIELSKI H3 Complete" . If you intersting maybe in futre help me add english version .


*** Project require Heroes Chronicles GOG or NWC (CD) version and Heroes 3 Complete. HDMOD is implement.


News: http://heroes.net.pl/nowina/3769, https://www.acidcave.net/newsitem1839.html#1839, https://www.heroes3.eu/aktualnosci/345-heroes-chronicles-w-pelni-po-polsku (look images )

Edit.: v.2.5.8 is here!
I fixed bugs and add features!
Changelog available is acidcave: https://www.forum.acidcave.net/topic.php?TID=3892&pid=161176&page=25#161176


Edit.: v.2.5.7
The project is about 2 years old.
Generaly It's first version english, so If you have bugs tell me. It's big project and I a lot of (cost time) working all embrace.

Hello there! Tarnum the Immortal hero has returned! Or maybe he never left for some, such as myself. Either way, there is a new reason to pick up Heroes Chronicles again, whether for the first time or the hundredth time!

I released Project Chronicles, which is a mod for Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete and Heroes Chronicles that brings all of the Chronicles chapters into one place!

There is a new user interface which allows the player to select and launch whichever chapter they wish to play, including the fan made Glory of War chapter.



Each chapter selection will first bring up a newly created introduction for the campaign before launching. These intros contain text from the box sets of the games, as well as the text from the 3DO website for World Tree and Fiery Moon.





Anything that was on the box sets of Heroes Chronicles can be found here. From the campaign descriptions, to the NWC promotions on the back of the boxes, to the previews and tutorials. Everything is there that you could find in the original, but all in one easy to find location. It’s a Tarnum delight!




Each chapter contains the tutorial just as it is in the original.




The preview selection screen has had a major facelift. The original versions just have buttons with the name of the Heroes Chronicles chapter for each preview. Here you now have these glorious images from the chapters to choose from.




Each chapter plays just like the original games, and did I mention this mod also uses the HD mod? It is packaged up with the installer so no need to go looking for it if haven’t messed around much with Heroes 3 mods.



There are lots of goodies to be found here. If you’ve never had the box sets with the player manuals, there are some nice little tidbits that you have likely missed, such as the letters from Tarnum for the majority of the Chronicles chapters. These have all been included with a completely new presentation like this one from The Sword of Frost below.



If you’ve been away from Heroes Chronicles for a while or just miss Tarnum, this is a great time to rekindle the friendship! This mod supports two languages: Polish and English, and they are selectable during installation.

So, what are the requirements to be able to use this mod? You’ll need to have purchased and installed Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete, either the GoG version or CD version, and all chapters of Heroes Chronicles (except for World Tree and Fiery Moon, as these were released for free), also either the GoG version or CD version.

As of the time of this writing, GoG.com is actually having their winter sale, and both Heroes 3 Complete and Heroes Chronicles All Chapters are 75% off. If for some reason you don’t have these already, head over to GoG and pick them up for super cheap (Totally worth the price!) and give Project Chronicles a try!

Below is a more comprehensive list of new resources:
* Introductions for each chapter of Heroes Chronicles
* Original advertisements and creation of missing ones for Revolt of the Beastmasters and Sword of Frost (both visual versions). The second visual version includes Authorings - enable the appropriate option in the Launcher to change 'Additional extensions' .
* Buttons for Chronicles with portraits of Tarnum (there were not officially all of them, only 4 pieces).
* Accurate and long reconstruction of Authoring 'THE FINAL CHAPTERS'.
* Tarnum's Training and Campaign images for each Chronicles chapter (including mini images) - can be swapped for default also with option in Launcher 'Additional extensions' .
* Tarnum letters for each Chronicle prepared on scroll, with recovered portraits from 3DO website for Revolt of the Beastmasters and Sword of Frost.
* Launcher with lots of options: SoD_SP project, Use modify mode, Additional extensions, generate shortcuts (tailstock button), and much more .
* Created Loading for Revolt of the Beastmasters - more fitting - you can restore 'Additional extensions'.
* Chronicles The Glory of War (campaign image resources, background, buttons, Tarnum icons for saves, etc.).
* Project Chronicles has a stylized high score screen.
* Vorr now has an original portrait.
* Project Chronicles has full support for GOG/CD game versions and Windows XP.
* Original background images for the campaign previews.
* and more!

A list of some fixes provided:
* Added ranges for number of units e.g.: Few (1-4), etc.
* The "NEW GAME" and "LOAD GAME" image no longer overlaps the animations - it has been moved and adjusted correctly for each Chronicles chapter.
* Added for each Chronicle ALL Chronicles features -> fixed victory and loss conditions: e.g. in Conquest of the Underworld the description states that Tarnum and Allison can’t die or you lose. The game, however, is not lost if you lose those heroes. In another map it was required to get an artifact to win, in yet another one Tarnum couldn't die along with not going over the time limit.
* Conquest of the Underworld didn't have the correct mini image in the campaign menu for scenario 7.
* Fixed texts e.g. bug in Fiery Moon regarding artifact defense by demons/devils, Tutorial Revolt of the Beastmasters with world sides (west, east, north, south), etc.
* Animations for each Chronicles chapter title screen.
* FULLY COMPATIBLE HDMOD, HAH! .
* Game saves are split so that there are no problems with collisions between saves from different Chronicles chapters.
* Also, the English and Polish versions are split up so that there are no problems with gameplay.
* Fixed Tarnum Revolt of the Beastmasters and Sword of Frost portraits.
* Fixed time scenarios in previews
* and more!


Installation instructions:



First Window;
First the installer will attempt to verify the installations for Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete and Heroes Chronicles. Confirm your selection below for the type of verification. One type is the “all chapters” installation of Heroes Chronicles, while the other is individual chapter installations..

Select “yes” if you have the individual chapters of Heroes Chronicles installed, as in they are each in their own folder. Select “no” if you have the all chapters version installed.

(Note. The appearance of the verification has been changed to support Windows XP)

Next window:
Verification of having the appropriate Heroes Chronicles installed. Select the type of check depending on which Heroes Chronicles you have installed. “Yes” for the GoG version, “No” for the NWC version.

(Note. The appearance of the verification has been changed to support Windows XP)

Next window:
(The installer has correctly verified the installation of the appropriate Heroes Chronicles)

Ok to continue..

Next to continue.. Accept the agreement.. Select your Heroes 3 Complete directory and next..

Select English or Polish version and next..

Project Chronicles installs.

Next the HD mod is installed if you don’t have it already. Select your H3 Complete folder if it’s not selected already and next.

Next is start menu folder, and finally install.

Finish and launch (or not launch).

It's a shame NWC didn't use the opportunity (ofc it wasn't their fault with 3D0's financial situation) to create new content. The expansions were basically only scenario packs with good story, but it could've been so much more.

I would be def interested in this, just to see how much you enhanced the experience (I'm Polish but I play English version)

An English version would totally be welcome. After all, more than 50% of HoMM3 players aren't Polish.

I know . Generally I wanted create fully polish version, because (I talk up) never we don't saw release 4 chapters in polish (only english) in Poland. If players/moders help me exactly create missing resources (english texts, graphics, animations, change text to english in campaigns etc.) I will add port english or others language (Launcher [message, buttons, (...)], installation) - best than me () translator to english. I must admit that I have been working on the modification for a long time to thoroughly fix all bugs.

Welcome on this friendly forum.

I havevan idea how to repair versions uncompability.
Try replace in exe file these values
16000000 1a000000 1d0000000 ==> 1d0000000 1d0000000 1d0000000

Its a code a 16 RoE 1a AB 1d SoD. Now we should have only SoD maps.
Adresses:
0x23ab20
0x23aa70

Maybe it will repair bugs?

You actually may solo test If open manually exe (no Mini Launcher) - RoE/AB doesn't have function. It's doesn't work. I left in AB (standard version camaping) for test - If open upgrade version.
