Advanced Classes Mod v1.055 update (ERA 3)

The recent advancement in the ERA version made it necessary to update some files that are delivered with Advanced Classes Mod. Consider this more as an intermediate version. There are not many new things, just some polishment, and little balance changes.

This version requires the newest ERA version 3.2  (or use ERA Gaming Build) and the ERA ERM framework mod, but to compensate you no longer need the WoG scripts mod. That will allow you to play a very close to the vanilla Heroes 3 game, just with all ACM changes. As always, delete the old version before installing the new.

Installation Tutorial:

  • This mod requires the latest ERA 3.2 version.
  • Download the ERA Gaming Build
  • Go to the HD Launcher and make the following settings:
    For resolution, I recommend 1180×664 or 1280×720
    and any filter.

    Thanks to the ERA team and the creator of HD mod the HD mod can now be used in the newest version and you can choose any graphic mode. I recommend the: (stretchable) 32-bit OpenGL by Verok. Colors should now work regardless of the selected bit size.
