Heroes IV problems with Sounds and Windows 10

Postby Mareneusz002 » Mar 29 2019, 18:47

Hello,

Sadly i have 2 problems with Homm4:

1. I have installed Homm4 on my Windows 10. instalation was little delayed at start, but everything went good. The problem is game doesnt work, i was trying with many compatibilities but still doesnt work or theres black screen for few seconds and still nothing. Then i wanted to install any of expansions (Gathering storm / Winds of war), but in both cases it said that i need to install normal H4 first...

2. I have Windows XP SP3 on my Virtualbox and Homm4 works here but with no Sound. The only Sound is 3DO intro and after that there is no any sound / music. In options i have maxed sound (100%) in both sounds and music.

I have original CD's and everything was good when i played it few years ago on my computer with Windows XP

Im not specialist in computers, but maybe does someone have any ideas how to help me :| ?

Thanks!

I'm afraid that you need a GoG version or some wrapper like DxWND.

There should be a preset for Heroes IV, look into 'export' folder.

Yes, I have one. Install over it Equilibris mod :P

Mareneusz002, if you end up needing the GoG version, send me a pm. I usually buy gift copies from GoG whenever they have them on sale, so I might still have some extra gift codes.

hello again!

export folder didnt help :l i was trying to run h4 with it and with many other options but it does nothing. when i click import it and click "run" heroes 4 just do nothing.

i always was scared of Equilibris mod but downloaded it, had some problems, BUT IT WORKS!!!

i was trying to install Eq mod on normal H4 on Win10 but had some errors, so i installed h4 with wow & gs on virtual windows XP then transported it to Win10 and installed Eq mod, but it said that my heroes4.exe is bugged or something like that, but some answers was at FAQ Eq mod, to export some files and download new, and finally it works :D

Thanks for your advices and your time Pol =)

Glad that it worked!

Equilibris was created just for this purpose albeit DxWND should work for you. Myself I don't need it as I have localized version. And these from the ProjectCD CZ,SK,PL don't need it. Neither they require CD.
