Heroes of Might and Magic IV  → Patches

by Kalah

Patches for Heroes of Might & Magic IV

These patches are now available for download directly from our site. You no longer need to go to FilePlanet for them. Our server is quite fast, so download is fairly quick for broadband users, but please note that the files are large. If you use a dial-up connection, things could take a while, and you'd better grab a magazine and crack open a big pack of snacks.

Many people encounter a problem while patching, receiving an error message saying: "Old File not Found, but another file with the same name exists. No update was performed." If you encounter this error, the problem may be trying to patch with the incorrect language version. The list below shows the language version of your installed game in the Windows registry under the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/New World Computing/Heroes of Might and Magic IV/1.0/

Language Keys
409 = US
809 = UK English
??? = Czech
40c = French
40f = German
??? = Hungarian
410 = Italian
40a = Spanish
??? = Russian

If you still encounter this problem and you have the correct patches, the error may be caused by modified .exe files (cracks=bad), or altered maps. In this case the best solution is to reinstall the game before patching. If you are comfortable with editing the registry, then uninstall your game, and delete the entire New World Computing key and all subkeys before reinstalling. Also delete any remaining Heroes IV game folders, making sure you back up your savegames and custom maps first.

Hello there.

Regarding Equilibris , I don't know if you went here. This is a good guide throughout installation, and also states about WoW version of sorts. I think the Equilibris mod is pretty much the "patch" you need.

This place here has some FAQs.

Regarding UBI, I do not really know about their patches. Given the game was from 3DO, this changing of hands may had some issues. Better take a look on their forums.

Perhaps someone may answer these questions better than me. ;)

Help! I have all the versions of Heroes IV - Heroes IV, The Gathering Storm and Winds of War, so I know I need the US patches. Some questions:

Do I need to install each successive patch, e.g. first Heroes 4 ver 1.0 to 1.3 Std. US, then Heroes 4 ver 1.3 to 2.0 Std. US, thru Heroes 4 ver 2.2 to 3.0 Std. US?

Do I need to install both Std and GS (Gathering Storm) patches?
I don't see any Winds of War patches. Are there any?

I don't understand the purpose of the UbiSoft patches. Do they replace the other patches or are they in addition to the other patches?

If for some reason the patches don't work, can you still play standard
scenarios/campaigns or do you have to uninstall EVERYTHING and reinstall the original Heroes IV again?

Is there an "Equilibrious for Dummys" book out there somewhere? Or any step by step installation manual?

I apologize, but I am on very shaky ground when it comes to this kind of thing and would deeply appreciate any help.

Also a good option ;)!

Go to the main site, click the "Downloads" bar at the top, and then go to the "patches" pages. Click "Heroes III" and that will take you to the page linking directly to this page, with all Heroes 3 patches.

Go to the main site, and in the selection bar you must chose heroes 3. On the left you got a menu, click on the "patches" text and you are there!
