Step 1. – Installation of Heroes 3 Complete
For the installation it is required to have Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete from GOG.COM installed on your computer. Do not use s*itty RIP versions from the internet!
An important step is choosing the right destination folder where Heroes 3 Complete is installed. Click on the “Browse” button and click your way to the Heroes 3 Complete folder. I have my game installed directly on the C drive c:\gog gamess\HoMM 3 ERA 3 Gaming Build v1.33. Do not install the game in a “Program Files” folder. Click “Install”.

Download and run installation package, then select Heroes 3 Complete folder. Do not install this build on already installed versions of WoG or HotA. Click “Install” button.
Step 3. – ERA Start Menu

Step 4. – Mod Manager
After the correct installation of version 1.33, Mod Manager will look exactly like this! You can enable XXL map modification to play huge maps. Close Mod manager.
