try this site:
http://www.avault.com/pcrl/patches_temp.asp?patch=homm4
hope it works (tho the diff between 1.2 patch and the 1.3 isn't that great)
Cheers.

can you play HOMM4 v1.0 without the patch at the moment? If you are missing heroes4.exe i don't know how you are supposed to get into it.

Also, don't use the gameupdate that comes with the game. it automatically links with the 3do website and the patch there isn't working properly. Try using www.google.com to search up another mirror. Download that and then run the install program for the patch.

   hmm...
   i have got the right 1.3 patch.
   when i ran it,it said (when proceeded to 19%) "old file not found,however a file with the same name was found.no update found since file contents do not match." at that time,the update program was processing heroes4.exe.
   i know exactly the only wrong is the heroes4.exe file.
   my copy is not a cracked copy.it cost my 48 chinese dollors.
   i can play the 1.0 game with my own heroes4.exe,but i want to update.
   what i want to get here is a US unpatched heroes4.exe version1.0 which can be patched up.
   if someone have that file and would like to help me,please tell me where i can download it or send it to "qingshuiwujian@sina.com"(please zip the file to no more than 5 mb so i can recieve it).
   thank u

I think there is a way to get the language version of the game, it is explained in most sites dedicated to homm4...

1) Go to Start | Click on Run | Type "regedit"

2) Click on the plus next to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder

3) Click on the plus next to the "Software" folder

4) Click on the plus next to the "New World Computing" folder

5) Click on the plus next to the "Heroes of Might and Magic IV" folder

6) Click on the "1.0" folder

7) Look at "Language"

U.S. Version, it will read "409" in the Data Column
U.K. Version, it will read "809" in the data column

You should know that a price is only based on how much people think it worths... that's capitalism...

are you sure you got a genuine version? I've been to china and there is a lot of cheap pirated stuff there. When I went to china I bought two boxfuls of cheap pirated cds (not HOMM IV). It's probably not even worth it for 3do to export games to china 'cause there's so much competition form pirates.

All around world problem !

Hia all
Me, beeing fairly new to this also needs to get some info...or spread some of me cent's ( mostly 2 cent's )
You need ( in ANY part of the world ) to get 1.0 to 1.3  THEN you have to get 1.3 to 2.0 ( 2.0 recent update, as far as I know )
And those updates you can get from these links :
1-  http://www.hommb@st@rds.com/patches.html ( @=a's) US and UK versions
2- Http://www.Drachenwald.net ( German Help site )
3- http://www.weeflea.org  <-- An all around help site for new players. Hosted by a cool person called Greystole !
Well I just ran outta cents, I might be back later And i hope these links will help you players out.
Greetings Uncoatedtitan
