Hi, thank you for the mod. Maybe I am doing something wrong. It works fine without HD mod, but with the HD mod (version 5.0 RC81) I get the error window "You should run HD3_Launcher.exe first after HoMM3 HD installation" (which I of course did) and after pressing OK I get the H3SW window but with crash message about access violation: [HOMM3 HD CRASH LOG]

Log
{
compability_dir = C:\Games\HoMM 3 Complete\_HD3_Data\Compability\#era

EXE_VERSION & ERA

}

HOMM3 HD version: 5.0 RC81
Time { 03/23/2020 20:37:10 }

GUN: [H6I6MU9QY70014NHZNHFMT HHW 149 VEL 499TY]

Exception
{

Adress: [ DSOUND.DLL+0x4188 ]
Code: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION
Flags: 0x00000000
Information: write of address: 0x76A41B54
}

EDIT: the crash remains even after the uninstall of the HD mod.

The error is due to some changes in recent HD Mod updates. To fix the game, you can reinstall the mod in the same folder over all files. I am suspicious that the whole deal is about patcher_x86.dll file, which you can replace with the one coming with the native H3SW installation.

I also found out that the mod in fact CAN launch even with this error. Approximately 1 of 10 launches is fine and the mod otherwise behaves absolutely alright. So, you can try that roulette method if you wish to keep HD Mod installed, too.

We are working on the issue for v0.8.2 update.

Use an earlier version of HD Mod. I'm using RC 50 and when I recently tried to update to the latest version I also received the same errors as you.

Hi! Great mod! Will there be a vcmi port for this mod? It would be great if there is one :)

Hello. I suppose, not in the foreseeable future. There is no point in any kind of platform transfer until a new platform is more functional and reliable.

Is anyone in the community actively creating maps for this great mod, and if so, is there a related forum?

Recently, we opened a dedicated subforum on our official forums:
Heroes2.forumactif.com

I should note however, that mapmaking for the current version of the mod is somewhat risky because many aspects of the game may or may not change in future. Certainly, the changes will affect the magic system and creature stats/prices even in the next update. Some map objects might be removed/improved too.

Orzie why the **** is the installer asking to make changes on my computer? do i need any changes in my computer when im just installing the mod? whats going on man?

I revised the files. The installer is based on ERA 2.46 installer by Berserker and launches the same chain of programs required to place the files. It's safe if you get the installer from here.
To minimize risks, I recommend installing the game, and later, the mod to a non-system hard drive partition (i.e. not Disk C:/) so that the files will be installed correctly.

It's just a SFX WinRAR archive and you are the first to report such kind of problem. It might be useful to check if any of such kinds of archives does exactly that on your computer. This may depend on your operating system.

Ahh, I see. We will just have to wait a bit then. On another note, I accidentally created a framed box (things are dimmed outside of it) on the screen that I think is showing me the original resolution view range (dimension door distance limit maybe). Any idea how to turn that off? I am not even sure how I turned it on.

If you see a frame while casting the Dimension Door, this is an HD Mod feature. Do you have it all the time, or only while trying to cast the spell?

It was actually stuck on until I rebooted the game. Something got stuck in the code I suppose. All is well now.
