Heroes of Might and Magic IV – HD Resolution Mod by Verok

This mod allows play Heroes of Might and Magic IV on 16:9, 16:10 screens. It is based on HoMM IV GL Wrapper, so it requires it. But download package has already the last version of GL Wrapper, so you don’t need download it separately.

      Hi Maks, all thanks belong to the author of the modification – Verok. 🙂

    There is a visual glitch that appears of the left side of the “town screen” (I will add a picture for you to see). It appears as if the yellow window frame is of larger size than the actual image of the town screen, so the background underneath shines through. I am unsure if this happens on more windows, like the battle screen.
    I hope you are still fixing bugs so that this bug can be fixed.

    Amazing mod btw. It took this many years for someone to do this, we can finally play this game on a modern pc… Great work.


    If someone could please relay this to that guy at his blog. Since I dont own or want to own a google account. It would be good if he fixes this visual bug before he goes into a hibernation like most modders do after a while of release.

      Hi Beige, thanks for the information, I wrote it to the author on the blog, I hope he fixes it.

    Zdravím, je nějaká šance zahrát si Homm na tabletu? Mám iPad a stažené Homm3, ale bohužel bez datadisku. Šlo by Homm4 HD na android? Moc díky

      Nazdar, Heroes 4 sa veľmi nevenujem, ale bolo ju možné na Androide hrať cez exagear napr. na tomto videu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE6RClLXmY4 no aplikácia exagear už nie je vyvíjaná, možno ak by si našiel jej poslednú verziu, vedel by si H4 na androide spustiť.

    Ahoj , je to možne hrať aj na complete verzii od gog ?

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Ahoj, samozrejme, aj toto video bolo robené z pomocou GOG verzie Heroes 4.

    I really like the idea of the MOD and i love HoMM4 so goodjob!
    I am a bit hesitant to download it though, since i dont like the look of the transparent borders when in the townscreen and combat, compared to fullscreen on the adventure map. Is there any way you can make everything fullscreen? Then it is an instant download for me

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi Snabel, as with the HD modification of Heroes 3, this is unfortunately not possible.

      The author would have to make a new sprite, for all units and for all resolutions.

    Can anyone help me with the installation? I downloaded the file from this site and copied the extracted items into the game folder (I tried “Data” and no sub-folder). When I run the game in windowed mode, I only have the left option “file” in the top bar and none of the others so I can’t change any settings. Please excuse the question if it is dumb – it’s my first time modding anything like this.

  8. Steffen

    Edit: I can now see everything but the “mod” tab in the top bar. Still need help, though. Ty in advance

    1. Steffen

      Edit2: I fixed it! For anyone running into the same issues – simply uninstall and reinstall the mod and extract the file from the download directly into the game root of your game. The old “did you turn it off and on again?” kinda worked lol

      1. Joseph

        I tried that few times. I even deleted the names files from the folder and extracted inside again. I only have File showing.
        Can you or someone else help?

        1. VaclavC

          Same here. I’am trying to run it with Wine.
