Re: Was the Wait button in HoMM III a mistake?

Wait button was first introduced in HoMM II. It was fully implemented... but disabled just before HoMM II release in 1996. And it can be easily turned back on. Details in adjacent topic. :-)

Re: Heroes IV widescreen on Windows 10

You probably know it already... it is impossible without gaining game sources from ubi or reverse-engineering of game binaries for many years. Maximum supported resolution is 1280x1024. Stretching is the only possibility.

Re: I have issues with my h4

One time is enough, the value is remembered in the registry. But You should run the game as Administrator every time. Good luck!

Re: I have issues with my h4

1. Uninstall the game. 2. Reinstall the game in C:\Heroes4\ or similar folder outside 'Program Files' and 'Program Files (x86)' folders. 3. Start the Command Line Prompt as Administrator and run the following command (as Administrator): sc config secdrv start= demand (there should be a space ' ' bet...

Re: NEW campaigns in HoMM III

1. Stay away from ubisoft and any form of its 'HD Edition'. Ubisoft released a very first edition of HoMM III: RoE from February 1999 (Restoration of Erathia) only without Random Map Generator. You still need HoMM III: Complete (CD Version from 2000/CD version from HoMM Platinum Edition Compilation ...

Re: Heroes IV - Windows 10 - Crashes

Try setting affinity to a single CPU core. For example, try making a heroes4.bat file in game directory with following content:
start /affinity 1 heroes4.exe
(assuming that main game executable is called heroes4.exe). Then start the game (as administrator) using this heroes4.bat file.

Re: HoMM3:AB won't run

Try adding some dummy files (about 100-200Mb, sometimes more is needed) to the partition when the game was installed. The problem should go away.

P.S. If You really have 1Tb or more of free space then You should (ideally) decrease free space to 999.9Gb. :)

Re: Heroes IV won't start

So - The original HoMM IV is working on your system?? It is REALLY STRANGE because any edition of HoMM IV (and GS too, by the way) utilizes Safedisc v2 copy protection. The HoMM IV with GS expansion does not work, and it's expected. :yes: Then try installing second expansion pack (HoMM IV: WoW). If ...

Re: Heroes IV won't start

Some HoMM IV releases (GE,UK for example) utilize Safedisc v2 copy protection. Windows 10 can have problem with old copy ptotection (like Safedisc/Securom). Only US release of HoMM IV: Winds of War does not have any copy protection and therefore can work on Windows 10 without problems. In any way a ...

Stay away from GoG and other crappy so-called 'HoMM 3:Complete' editions. RoE campaigns are unplayable in such releases. First, You need to install HoMM3: Restoration of Erathia from original CD released in Feb. 1999.

It is illegal to demand fee for port of original game. Go home. Still I personally dont believe in cashing in on such applications so chance I will get it for myself are close to 0. This.
