    What option is the 4th picture with Orrin gaining a level if i may ask? I’m unable to find that option. Thank you for the upload.

  2. Eoni Pinto

    Hi, thanks a lot for the hard work! It looks very neat. I have just one question… anywhere to find the description of the new scripts? Thanks!

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi Eoni, unfortunately, there is no description anywhere. Only in the game when you right-click on script. Some are hre: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fGVxktkux8&list=PLrE0bNniyC-xFpq7Y_u1RzRlYl0GazEqV

  3. Eoni Pinto

    That was good enough haaha, I didn’t tried that earlier before asking (silly me!). Now I’m trying to work around the points distribution (Custom primary skills) I can’t make it work 🙁 .

  4. chuff

    so how can I download the files? I cannot download anything at this “skadi” site and I cant register because i dont understand russian

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      So that’s weird, I have a page in English. But I uploaded them to Mega.nz, try now: https://heroes3wog.net/homm3-era-hd-era-scripts-gaming-build-download/

      1. chuff

        thanks, that link again leaves me only with this download option “Download v2.9.12 + HD-mod 5.0 RC80 + ERA Scripts (yadi.sk)” which just isn’t working .(

        1. Liso1 (Post author)

          Hi Chuff, the page was still loaded in the cache, now you should see the right links, if not, you have to empty cache of your browser.

          1. chuff

            Thank you very much, Sir

  5. razvan

    all i can see is the yandex links .. ( and it requires registration , phone number etc

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi Razvan, same as chuff, page was still loaded in the cache, now you should see the right links, if not, you have to empty cache of your browser.

  6. DejaVu

    Hello there! Is there a way to get the old commander models like for Astral Spirit and Succubi? I like the old ones so much better and they fit the game more. Also, why is Astral Spirit Efreet Rajah now? 😀

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      It probably doesn’t work in this ERA game build. You would have to download the pure version of ERA 2.9.12, which contains classic commanders.

  7. Tyty

    How do I play in fullscreen ? I installed all but HD launcher has no option for fullscreen

    1. Tyty

      Nevermind. All I had to do was press F4. Sorry

      1. Liso1 (Post author)

        Good 🙂

  8. Eoni Pinto

    Hello everyone. I just want to update you in case you face the same problem I did.
    With the new ERA options inside the WoG you have the possibility to use Custom Primary Skills so you can add points to tailor your heroes as you liking. Regretfully after checking it wasn’t working for me and it was a lenghty process of trial and error to find what was the problem. Basically if you activate it and also activate the “Landing navigation” it won’t let you assign points so in case you want to use the Custom skills, you need to deactivate Landing navigation option.
    Hope it helps you not to become insane as I was for a few days!

      Thank you Eoni!

    Hi, Liso1. I am gonna update assembly soon.
    I will change all the links on the 3 folders (google/yandex/dropbox), each of them will have 4 versions (eng/rus full/light). Is that okay for your site? i dont wanna have you or me any license issues. So i would to get answer. Here/discord/gmail.
    Thanks again for your works!)

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi daemon_n,
      great, I look forward to the new version, then I will create a complete installation guide. People are having trouble downloading a file from Yandex.

      It’s okay, I’ll just add links to the light version on the page without full Heroes 3 version.

      When will it be available?

      1. daemon_n

        now the google and dropbox are available without issues, if you will not use the yandex, but now it is also might work.

    Hello there, avast is saying that this file contains malware if its true don’t download!

    1. Cain Jacob

      In fact i bet theres is more than malware if you downloaded the file can you run it through this website? https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home

    2. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi Cain, please note – this mods (WOG,ERA, Master of Puppets, HD mod) are written in ASM, which is great for debugging, thus favored by hackers. That AV software doesn’t like for obvious reasons. False positives may occur, especially if you use free shit*y antivirus (which is always nothing but promotion of its paid version) such as Avast and AVG. You have been warned.

  11. Nikolas Savvanakis

    Hi. The 3rd upgrade of the units doesn’t work. The option is enabled in wog options.Is there a restriction or something similar?
    For example do i need to have a grail in the town or be a specific lvl?

  12. Perry

    You need the Third Upgade mod v1.7.0
    and read instructions given in the mod manager.

    Also some WoG options give you possibilities with more upgrades

  13. FreEz3

    Could someone please tell me why the Quick Combat option is not functional? I’ve enabled it in the Wogify Options, but when I click to fight a group of monsters, it doesn’t ask me if I would like to use Quick Combat, instead the manual fight starts right away.

  14. Kris

    Hi, so i bought heroes 3 from GoG website, i downloaded WOG but i have a problem. The thing why i want to play WOG the most is because before the fight you should get the popup window that let you pick Quick fight, normal fight , no spells with spells etc. But i dont have the window at all ! why is that, i did turn the right Option in WOG settings. I tried to press right mouse button on Options in game, because it might been off but it’s not. What do i do??

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi Kris (and FreEz3),

      unfortunately the author of this package has decided to remove this script so far (I really don’t know why). We will and try to persuade him to bring him back.

      The only option is to install a clean ERA 2 and Wog Scripts: https://heroes3wog.net/era-2-download/

      1. Kris

        ah that’s a big disappointment for me, is there any older version i could download that has this script?

        1. Kris

          oh sorry i did not read till the end, thanks I will try that, very much appreciated!

  15. Kris

    Great it works ! thanks alot, it’s a shame that there are no bigger maps than XL in ERA 2 🙁 me and my gf would love to play a bigger one but we need the quick combat option. I hope the person who did the script will change it in the future, not sure why was that deleted, really a shame 🙁

    Anyway thanks again !

  16. Perry

    I am sure the quick battle will come back.
    And if not here you go:

  17. FreEz3

    Hi Perry,
    thank you for the script! The only downside is that everytime when you use quick combat, the spell book of the hero disappears 😀

  18. Fotis

    Hello – ERA 2.9.14 (Era gaming build 1.31) experiencing lags on battles, and also I can’t see enemy movement on map when I end my turn. Any ideas why?

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      Hi Fotis, are you using HD mod?

      For the second problem, check System Options settings – Enemy Speed:

  19. Joe

    Hi and thanks for this wonderful mod!

    I have a question about Era 2.9.13

    I have used it before without any problems but one surfaced cause I recently changed computers..

    My avast antivirus (it came free with my new computer) detected a “FileRepMalware” in the “Era 2.9.13.exe”

    I don´t remember my other antivirus detecting such a thing so I was just wondering if this is something I really should worry about?

  20. ANCARY

    I have ERROR. I play random map (XL,G). I play 5 minutes and game crashed. Please help. (In normal map all is OK). 🙂

    (WOG, ERA III + new update + three upgrade monster mod)

    1. ANCARY

      All is OK.

      !!! IT IS -WOG OPTIONS- !!!
