How to install Heroes 3 Horn of the Abyss step-by-step
or try WoG Folderonline source of Heroes of Might and Magic mods (not only Heroes 3 mods, but not Heroes 6 😀 ) and various goodies (like “Did you know” series) that I have managed to collect over the last 10 years for everyone who contributes to the running of the Heroes 3.5 Portal.

Platform and installing:

Horno of the Abyss (HotA) is to be installed on top of the previous HotA version or the original game “Heroes of Might and Magic III: Shadow of Death” or “Complete”. Localization of the original game does not matter.

Attention: HotA is not to be installed on top of “Heroes of Might and Magic III — HD Edition” (from Ubisoft), or on top of “Restoration of Erathia” or “Armageddon’s Blade” HoMM III versions.

If there are issues when performing an automated update of the HD-Mod, you can download the up-to-date installer package from the developer’s website and install it over the old version in the same folder.

Core Horn of the Abyss features:

  • New fully playable town — Cove
  • New war machine — Cannon. Available at Cove’s Blacksmith
  • New artifacts and artifact sets
  • New banks and conservatories
  • New types of map objects
  • New heroes
  • New terrain for Conflux town — Highlands
  • Towns change their appearance, depending on Fort level
  • Map editor
  • RMG template editor as well as extended RMG template format
  • Support for bigger map sizes (Huge, XHuge and Giant)
  • A lot of balance fixes (like finally nerfing the necromancers or making life easier for Tower and Inferno)
  • A lot of RMG fixes (for example, removing all sea elements from non-sea random maps)
  • A lot of graphical fixes (like, really a lot… original game had plenty of graphical bugs)

      I don’t understand, what are you repeating 20 times already? You need to be more specific if you need help.

    I downloaded and installed the mod and everything works but I can’t load anything. As soon as I hit the Load button on Single Scenario or Campaign the game crashes. It is not installed in the C: and the OS is Windows 10.

      do you have any other mods installed in the folder?
      Are you using the Heroes 3 Complete GOG version?

      1. Evtimov

        No other mods, using the Heroes 3 Complete version. As I said – the mod itself works, I can play the game, it’s just that every time I try to load a game – it crashes. Happy to send you the log file over the e-mail if you get in touch with me.

          Found the issue, it was my fault

          1. Liso1 (Post author)

            Great that you fixed the error. Where was the problem?

            1. Evtimov

              I had a language pack mod. Strangely enough it was working whilst playing but it wasn’t working when trying to load. Tried a clean install and adding the mod and it worked.

    The computer is broken in HOTA sadly. :/
