How to install and setup ERA 3 Launcher (WoG)

What is ERA 3 Launcher?

ERA 3 Launcher contains the latest version of ERA 3, HD mod with Online Lobby, ERA Scrips, Unleashed Map Editor, Mixed Neutrals mod, XXL maps support, Game Enhancement mod, Advanced Classes mod, BattleQueue mod  and more in one installation package! And the best thing at last, the ERA 3 Launcher also includes an auto-update feature, so you don’t have to worry about searching for updates, everything will be done by itself.

ERA 3 is much more advanced, optimized, stable and includes Wake of Gods (WoG) as a modification. For me personally, this is the best way to discover a New Life of Heroes of Might and Magic!

14. If you have the mods selected, you can close the Mod manager and start the HD mod by clicking on the “HD MOD” button.

Feel free to experiment with resolution settings and different filters until you get the best result.

IMPORTANT: At the first launch, HD mod will also want to be updated, but it may happen that your antivirus program will not like it. The update will not take place at all and will end with an error message. I do it by turning off the AV for 10 minutes, updating the HD mod and continuing to work.

15. BONUS: Heroes 3 HD mod also includes an ERA Online Lobby, so you can easily play with your friends.
