Extract your Phoenix from bitmaplod, rename it the same as the WoG one is, replace, and there you go. You can replace any pcx/bmp you want. It's just too easy anymore. :) Same with the opening WoG music. If you want the original music, make a copy of the original, rename the copied file with the WoG...

I've never dealt with something like that. Is it possible they could be recognized in just the h3/data folder? I see that a lot of the Mods offered by many of the developers have placed .wav files in just the H3/data folder. It's all I can think of for now.

Moving the folder did'nt work for me. The path still goes to C/ program files x86/ H3 and you'll still experience the problems you had before. Do a clean install to My Documents. Reccommended.

I found I had the same problem. Evidently Microsoft did nothing to improve playability for Heroes. LAME!!!! Jim Vogan turned me on to this method instead: Install HoMM 3 and WoG in 'My Documents.' And by God that did the trick! All my files installed there unlike in the Win 7 OS Program Files x86. W...

I suppose they could be implemented by swapping out the originals with the new ones you found. I guess your answer lies in the source code why the're not used.

And I suppose with a little ERM scrtpting they could be used along with the originals.

I think DEFka backs up both lod files so that you can use the originals again.

Do not convert your files to pcx. Leave them as bmp and upload the bmp using MMArchive into bitmap.lod and they automatically turn into pcx. I know, I had the same problem. But it works.

To pack DEFs, simply take a .wog file, convert it to rar. Then you can extract what you want from there.

That's a pity. Going to your site was like waking up Christmas morning. Hope you get a comp soon so you can put more creatures up again. It's a good site.

No ..... Thank you for your great contributions! You keep making 'em and I'll put them up. :D

Same goes for anyone who improves H3 or WoG. Make your files bug free, crash free, and easy to use, and I'll post it on the page for everyone to use.

EDIT: Added the Mod "Heroes of Light."

HoMM3/WoG Files

I have put together a page of great Mods, Add ons and Utilities for HoMM 3 and WoG. You can access it from here or you can access it from the main page on Celestial Heavens in the Expansion section of the HoMM 3 page.

Wejcome to the CH forums sigil. I suppose you could play the games in series. That's one way to do it. A lot depends on your system. If it was me, I'd go heroes II then III and so on. Heroes I does'nt give a whole lot of story but introduces you to the mechanics of HoMM. HoMM II picks up the story p...

But Gnoll King is just getting started and he's off to a good start! His seems to be more current quicker.

Both highly recommended.

The translation does not affect the scripting. If it dtd, the map simply would'nt play.

All the Pride maps you're asking about can be found on the Map Archives. Just click my signature and it'll take you to the Map Achives index. All of them should be on Archives I, but getting II would also put you on the safe side. ;)
