He has written that the mod does only work with the GOG-version which can be downloaded on google.

The mod definitely works, others have even shown it on youtube. However, redownload and reinstall because I have uploaded a version with troubleshooting now.

It's strongly reccommended that people with versions previous to H4_Ultimate_V3-BF2-R.rar (including 3.2 and BF1) to redownload the file, since now it has widescreen default support, bugfixing instructions and the updated creature abilities, which were previously incorrect (from the prerelease version).

Will try to look. Don't know what could cause that difference. In which version did it load? Also, try this new one.

In an "epic bruh moment", although the prevous fix did fix the launching issues, the JSON wasn't actually updated the last time.
Now it has been, to the last version of July 9 used in my internal game.
This is Fix 2, Update 1.

Great work, I'm really enjoying it so far

Just a couple of thoughts:
Rename Goblin Knights to Dark/Demon Knights, it will fit more the theme of death and will make more sense why devils can summon them.

There is an Life hero that looks like a farmer and although it makes sense with the lore he looks kinda funky in battle.

Nymphs blueish texture is funky, doesnt fit aswell as maybe some greenish tint.

Chaos border looks too simillar to undead

What I got from your comment: Youtube.com

Nah but really, you have some valid points, others are down to personal preference.

Chaos border is not so similar to undead, problem is chaos is too dark. In v4 I will see if I can change it/lighten it, but it's a lot of work.

Green sprites would have too much camo with green backgrounds which are the most common. Best I can do is change it for blue (instead of cyan) or yellow, but only when the image tool supports mass PNG import.

Problem with goblin knight is that it is still actually chaos. And I vowed not to change alignement of creatures for this mod. But I will consider if a name change should be done or not. The spell is named "Invoke Iron Knights".

How can I change it into spanish? I see in config file "Language=1033" but don't know how to change it to be in spanish.

THe mod only comes with ENglish text at this time. However it can be installed into a spanish install, and it comes with a folder of spanish language maps too.

Just a tip. You have to put the contents of the "MAIN" folder into your Heroes 4 folder. Installation instructions that come with the archive are misleading. Maybe that's why some people can't launch it.

That is not the reason, the reason is that they were downloading an old version before the fixes. However you are right I had forgotten to update the readme changing "this folder" for "the MAIN folder" (actually I had changed it, but forgot to save the file)

There is an easy way to fix it but not in the humor for instructions. Next patch will adress the issue as well as an anim crash.

It's inside the MAIN folder. That's what you need to copy-paste

I found one small bug probalby. Ward for life (death spell) can not be used during battle (like ward for nature from life for example) Or it was intended to use this spell from adventure map view?

I will take a look at that, in theory it should work in combat but maybe I made some mistake in the table file.

Saludos. Can't make it work unfortunately. I followed all steps carefully from a clean install with GOG. Followed your instructions. First I had an error saying binkw32.dll was missing. I copied the one in the original game folder, and pasted it in MAIN. Then error Mss32.dll was missing. Same, I copied the original to MAIN. Now when I execute [patched]H4_Ultimate_V3.exe the game doesn't start, but I get a H4MS debug file that says "adquiring patcher". I executed the H4Patcher.exe and patched [patched]H4_Ultimate_V3.exe. But I see no effect, still doesn't work and I still get this debug file.
