    Hi guys,

    I followed the tutorial for installation of ERA 3. But it doesn’t work for me.
    When I open ERA 3 start menu, there are no mods installed. What am I doing wrong?
    Thank you for your time.
    Have a great day.

      Hi

      I did not have that problem.
      1. I instaled HOMM3 on C/HOMM3 (I create that file and this is important to do that I think)
      2. Then I instal ERA on C/HOMM3
      3. Then WOG
      4. And last HOMM3 HD.
      I have no problem with that.
      But after playing around 30 minutes crash. I do not know why.

    Radmin,
    what do you mean with install WoG?The old 3.58f? -> NOO!
    All you need is the gaming build offered here at this homepage, it includes everything.
    If you want we can investigate your crash. Send the zipped Debug folder with Dropmefiles. It contains all information. Find it in your Heroes 3 main folder.

      Sorry guys, me again… I installed gaming build it works, but very frequently the game crashes when I enter a battle, not every time, but very often. I tried to disable some mods but that didn’t help. Any ideas ?

        There was a problem with Karmic Battle that could result in such behavior.You use it? If yes Try without that option or download the newest version from the Russian forum or our discord server.

    Hi.

    I installed era 3 but when I try opening a map with h3wmaped.exe it appears this error:
    “Exception EconvertError in module h3wmapedpatch.dll at 00008B6A”.

    The map opens but with lots of error.

    How could I fix it?

      Hi Zinja, install ERA Gaming build ( http://heroes3wog.net/era-gaming-build/ )and use WOG map editor from it. You won’t find a better editor.

        I installed the gaming build. When I open the map editor, I get the same “Exception EconvertError in module h3wmapedpatch.dll at 00008B6A” error (even the number 00008B6A is the same). Also, some functionalití seems to be missing (like loading a png as the terrain, or filling the whole map with the same terrain). Any ideas on how I could fix it?

    Hi, i new to the whole wog again loving it so far .When i pick some Neutral creep scripts then at some point in neutral fight a super stack appear with tons of hp(10k+) and very high stat. I want to know which scripts cause this to happen so i can en/disable it.

      It is caused by Mixed Neutral Mod. The bug was fixed and you can update the mod. After that it should not happen anymore. You can even save your current game if you update the Mod and press F12 ingame.

        may back up the bug since it pretty fun to fight those super imp/pikeman. Thank you!

          This bug can get out of control easily 😀
          Better use the Difficult Mod, where you can set creature stats in a controlled way and even during your current game by right-clicking the systems option button 🙂

      Hi, unfortunately I don’t have information yet when they will be part of ERA 3, but try this: https://youtu.be/yHFtEy7s5nA

    WoG scripts appear to be breaking the SoD campaigns’ scripts. Makes Elixir or Life (Gelu’s arc) particularly painful to break into, since Gelu is forced to fight the troops he is supposed to get as reinforcements.

      Hi, SoD campaigns are not recommended to play at all with any WoG scripts. Use Safe Sod mod: http://heroes3wog.net/safe-sod-download/

        Then why take WoG campaign out of WoG? That makes no sense. Nevemind, I’m going back to 3.58f.

    I encounter a severe problem when I try to play. I installed ERA 3 but when I try to play, I receive a message telling me that there is no mss32.dll on my system. I search the internet, find the dll, install it on c:\windows\system32, re-launch the game and I receive another message saying “Unable to find entry point _AIL_set_sample_volume@8 in dll.

    The game won’t launch at all.

    Can you help me ?

    Hello.

    I tried to install the mod “ERA 3” but it refuses to launch. I first received the message “mss32.dll is missing”. I found this dll on the net and installed it in the c: \ windows \ system32 directory then got another message saying that the _AIL_set_sample_volume @ 8 procedure entry point was not found in the dll. Please help me.

    Is there any way to install custom wog files, like you could with the classic WoG? Also, is there a way to turn back how the Pikemen look? I prefer the original.

      What exactly do you mean by custom WOG files?

      If you install the clean version of ERA 3, pikeman will have a classic look.

    Hello there! Can you help me about two things?

    First is, that if i start era III, and do and ALT+TAB, or WIN+D, when i going back to game for system, its crashed, can’t be close even in the task manager.

    Second thing is, if i want to play the original campaings (restoration of earthia, then armageddon’s blade, then SoD) its compatilible if i play this with era III mod, or just use hoom sod/complete? (with hd mod)
    Thanks foreward for you answer.

      Hi Shadow,

      why or why you need to use ALT+TAB? If you want to get to Windows, use F4.

      The original campaigns are not compatible, you must use the Safe SoD mod http://heroes3wog.net/safe-sod-download/

        I just often need to see other things when i play in the operation system, thats why i need to get to windows, maybe i try to run the game in window, because with F4, the game freeze exactly like before. :/ This safe sod mod did not work with the latest era 3.7, right? So first, i need to install the whole game again, then era 2.9.14, then the this Safe SoD, right? (or i just play with hoom3 complete, and its done…:) )
        Thanks foreward!
