Problem with text boxes in ERA 3

Hi!
I used to play H3 at 800x600 resolution without problems
I updated recently to new Era 3, also updated HD mod and sometimes all the text doesn't fit inside text boxes.

This is what text boxes used to be in Era 2.9.14

Notice how even if the fonts are bigger all the text gets inside the box.

And this is how they appear in Era 3.

I tried also to revert back to old original fonts, but nothing change, apparently is a text box issue.

If I use a higher resolution the problem disappear.


I wonder if it is a ERA 3 issue or the culprit is the HD mod, can't solve the problem.

Oh sorry I forget to mention I installed the ERA 3 gaming build

this one:
http://heroes3wog.net/homm3-era-hd-era-scripts-gaming-build-download/
but nope I'm not using any Chinese plugin.

but I will do a new installation with the official ERA 3
and see if that solve the problem.

Edit: After many tests, I think I found the culprit, it was the new version of Advanced class mod for ERA 3, maybe that mod doesn't support anymore 800x600, so some skill descriptions or other stuff is cut at such resolution.

Try this English assembly by Panda: link

Disable mod 16-way monoliths first. All issues with dialogs were solved in Era 3.2-3.3.

I tried that version and still, the problem persists
I'm positive the issue come from Advanced Class Mod after all, since all the texts that don't fit the text windows come from that mod.
Still, I wonder why even if there is a scrolling sidebar it is not working, at least with the mouse, or is there a hotkey that lets you scroll?

Hi Tupaz,

ACM comes with a font similar to HotA because more information needs to fit in the skill and artifact description. Since HD mod is a thing I never used a resolution smaller than 1180x664. I would recommend using it because I don't see any drawback in doing so.
You can also try to delete the new fonts located in the .pac file.
Except for bringing the new font ACM changes nothing in regards to scroll or window size.

Fonts are cool, and anyway vertical resolution of new fonts seems the same as vanilla ones so it will make no difference at 800x600.

Anyway I have an old 19" monitor so using a resolution higher than 800x600 will make the game look....well too small, can't get used to that, and on long game sessions will disturb my eyesight, that's why I'm still using that low resolution, maybe I should buy a new monitor after all, so I can also activate the Battle queue.

Edit: For now I solved the problem creating my own fonts with fnt editor
https://grayface.github.io/mm/#Fnt-Editor

Need to modify medfont.fnt and use a font smaller than 8, just in case someone run in the same issue.
