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.

unknown11

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.

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! :D.
* 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!

Hello . I immediately apologize for my bad English .
Chronicles are in fact my 3 heroes) I didn’t play the original, only the chronicles. The mod is wonderful, but I would like to ask - is it possible to somehow change the localization through files? In 2000, all parts with full voice acting and text were released in Russia except 5-6. In this mod, all the videos and cutscenes that do not work in the regular HD version finally work. Therefore I would be very grateful if you could give me an answer. Thank you .

Hello,
Cool! Thank you very much :).
I don't understand Russian - nothing. It's possible to add, but I need big help with all resources and texts. You can write in discord :). I received a similar query about the language on the project's discord: Discord.com

wow! Suddenly I decided to see if there was an hd mod for the chronicles of heroes. I was pleasantly surprised. But yes, I also would really like to play in my native language. Considering that a huge part of the heroic community speaks Russian, it would be very nice to localize this version. Apparently, I visited this forum on time!

Hi HC_VIP!

I really want to play the enhanced/fixed campaigns from this mod using h3hota.exe because of all the QoL and balance changes (I don't like or use SOD_SP).

I found a rip of each and every NWC Campaign (Chronicles + RoE + AB + SoD) which is a bunch of .h3c files, sadly they are missing the intermission videos, music, and voiceovers. They still work in HotA, though.

So how do I rip the modded campaigns from this mod as well as those from RoE + AB + SoD so that they are playable in HotA with all that stuff?

I really don't care about the campaign and mission selection screens or Chronicles intros for that matter, I just want to have a bunch of dismembered .h3c’s in my Maps folder that would let me play all the official campaigns with fully animated & voiced intermissions and outros.

I know how to use Grayface’s editing tools to rip stuff or insert it back into .lod’s but I have no idea which files I have to rip and whether I must repackage them as a .lod or simply leave them scattered under a specific path.

Ideally I want to make a patch for Heroes III Complete that bakes all the Chronicles stuff right into the base .lod’s, but exposes the .h3c files to h3hota.exe with all the intermission and outro stuff still correctly linked.

Campaign Editor apparently has the capability to edit the video/voiceover/music stuff and scans some specific .lod(s) for the available options... So I guess even orphaned .h3c’s can be (re)linked to the appropriate stuff as long as it’s added into some base .lod.

I’m using GOG Heroes III Complete and Chronicles Complete.

Thanks!

I already have that, but it’s just vanilla campaigns missing all the enhancements from this mod.

Could you tell me about this project? It's only export map? If you export maps you don't have too everyone resources and original Heroes 3 Complete/Heroes Chronicles functions.

Hello bak!

My project is based on the original game while maintaining nostalgia and originality (without any balance changes due to new cities and so on) and that's what I mainly focused on with full HDmod support. HotA is a separate mod based on Heroes 3 Complete, just like my project is also based on Heroes 3 Complete. If you want to play on HotA you can export my campaigns from the *.lod Chronicles files (or the original campaigns from Heroes 3 Complete), BUT I highly do not recommend this as it will not be compatible and there will be problems/crashes and therefore you will not have all graphic resources, reading dialogues, main menu and more - better not do it. At HotA we do not have support for the original features from Chronicles which I also worked on: Youtube.com . I fixed a lot of errors, which is why the project is already several years old. If you want to play on HotA without being nostalgic, you have to contact HotA about it and they have to add it, but they can contact me, I'll be happy to help :). I emphasize that doing the project independently on HotA makes no sense, because HotA will release another update and it will not be up to date.

P.S. Actually we have difficult version Chronicles for polish language.

Exported Chronicles & H3 Complete campaigns are perfectly playable & winnable in HotA: Moddb.com

I was looking for a way to play your fixed / modified campaigns with all HotA changes in a similar way.

I check, but It's only exported maps, without: images, sounds, intro, functions Chronicles (my video), functions Complete and very more.

I understand. As I wrote above, full support is possible if HotA works in this direction, contact me or themselves

But HotA need option in project: original with HotA or elements HotA, because It's changes original camp. If no add this option - camp not original

Nevermind, you aren't following me or simply don’t understand English. I'm still thankful for your attention, though.
