    Anyone knows, how to configure this Launcher to work with Wine in Linux? Currently i manage to launch it, but most of buttons stays grayed out.
    Even after install on windows machine and copying to Linux system i could launch the game only directly from HoMM HD launcher.exe file. Also, no matter what version of ERA i update in Windows OS, after copying to Linux OS it shows “assembly v2.69 (current 2.87)”. Not sure, how to check if it still has all 2.87 changes.

      Hi, check this video “How to make 3rd upgrades (and 4th for 7 lvl units) and build additional units”:

    The last several ERA 3 Launcher updates have not been cleaning up the patch files, and are leaving multiple double entries in the plugin manager, which is a problem with the number of patches that keep coming out. Only a clean install to the latest version (when it doesn’t perform cleanup) fixes this.
    Also, the Advanced Classes Mod has an issue in online multiplayer that causes it to not give 2 points when you gain master in a skill, and when you pass your turn and come back to your turn, the skill shows as expert again.
    Another thing that has been happening, with the Third Upgrade mod enabled in online multiplayer, everyone is dropped out of the game on Day One of Week 2.
    This was fixed in version 2.76, but after being tempted into applying another update, the problem is back once again.

      Hi Grant, critical multiplayer bugs was fixed, update ERA 3 Launcher to v 2.908.

    2. Perry

      I can confirm that this bug should be fixed.
