How to install Wake of Gods (ERA 3) with latest WoG sripts and HD mod – Tutorial (outdated)
This tutorial is out of date, please install ERA 3 Launcher.
A new major version of Heroes of mIght and Magic III ERA was released. Currently Wake of Gods campaign are removed from the package (SoD campaigns became fully available with sound and prologue / epilogue). Once “alpha” tag is removed, they will be uploaded as standalone WoG Campaigns mod.
|GOG Heroes 3 Complete|
|ERA 3 Launcher|
I followed the tutorial for installation of ERA 3. But it doesn’t work for me.
When I open ERA 3 start menu, there are no mods installed. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you for your time.
Have a great day.
I did not have that problem.
1. I instaled HOMM3 on C/HOMM3 (I create that file and this is important to do that I think)
2. Then I instal ERA on C/HOMM3
3. Then WOG
4. And last HOMM3 HD.
I have no problem with that.
But after playing around 30 minutes crash. I do not know why.
what do you mean with install WoG?The old 3.58f? -> NOO!
All you need is the gaming build offered here at this homepage, it includes everything.
If you want we can investigate your crash. Send the zipped Debug folder with Dropmefiles. It contains all information. Find it in your Heroes 3 main folder.
Thanks man! <3
Sorry guys, me again… I installed gaming build it works, but very frequently the game crashes when I enter a battle, not every time, but very often. I tried to disable some mods but that didn’t help. Any ideas ?
There was a problem with Karmic Battle that could result in such behavior.You use it? If yes Try without that option or download the newest version from the Russian forum or our discord server.
I’m gonna turn it off, and try again ,thank you.
I wonder which mods and add-on can put together with ERA 3.2. May be some new monster, new town… I want more gaming experience
Hi Bieo, definitely try Thid Upgrades mod https://heroes3wog.net/third-upgrade-mod-v2-2-0-crystal-update/ and Advanced Classes mod: https://heroes3wog.net/advanced-classes-mod-1-05-final-era-3/ best mods for ERA 3 so far…
Hi! what a pleasent surprise, a new WOG
is “gaming build” just all these separate steps (video) combined?
I installed era 3 but when I try opening a map with h3wmaped.exe it appears this error:
“Exception EconvertError in module h3wmapedpatch.dll at 00008B6A”.
The map opens but with lots of error.
How could I fix it?
Hi Zinja, install ERA Gaming build ( https://heroes3wog.net/era-gaming-build/ )and use WOG map editor from it. You won’t find a better editor.
I installed the gaming build. When I open the map editor, I get the same “Exception EconvertError in module h3wmapedpatch.dll at 00008B6A” error (even the number 00008B6A is the same). Also, some functionalití seems to be missing (like loading a png as the terrain, or filling the whole map with the same terrain). Any ideas on how I could fix it?
Download this version of ERA Gaming build: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fILhiGMiI_mB9PSCpd–_TRoQ3FaiLs6/view?usp=sharing
Yes, man, this version works just fine. Thanks!
Hi, i new to the whole wog again loving it so far .When i pick some Neutral creep scripts then at some point in neutral fight a super stack appear with tons of hp(10k+) and very high stat. I want to know which scripts cause this to happen so i can en/disable it.
It is caused by Mixed Neutral Mod. The bug was fixed and you can update the mod. After that it should not happen anymore. You can even save your current game if you update the Mod and press F12 ingame.
may back up the bug since it pretty fun to fight those super imp/pikeman. Thank you!
This bug can get out of control easily 😀
Better use the Difficult Mod, where you can set creature stats in a controlled way and even during your current game by right-clicking the systems option button 🙂
I would like to play the WoG campaign. Any information when this will be added to the lastest version?
Hi, unfortunately I don’t have information yet when they will be part of ERA 3, but try this: https://youtu.be/yHFtEy7s5nA
WoG scripts appear to be breaking the SoD campaigns’ scripts. Makes Elixir or Life (Gelu’s arc) particularly painful to break into, since Gelu is forced to fight the troops he is supposed to get as reinforcements.
Hi, SoD campaigns are not recommended to play at all with any WoG scripts. Use Safe Sod mod: https://heroes3wog.net/safe-sod-download/
Then why take WoG campaign out of WoG? That makes no sense. Nevemind, I’m going back to 3.58f.
I encounter a severe problem when I try to play. I installed ERA 3 but when I try to play, I receive a message telling me that there is no mss32.dll on my system. I search the internet, find the dll, install it on c:\windows\system32, re-launch the game and I receive another message saying “Unable to find entry point _AIL_set_sample_volume@8 in dll.
The game won’t launch at all.
Can you help me ?
I tried to install the mod “ERA 3” but it refuses to launch. I first received the message “mss32.dll is missing”. I found this dll on the net and installed it in the c: \ windows \ system32 directory then got another message saying that the _AIL_set_sample_volume @ 8 procedure entry point was not found in the dll. Please help me.
Where is my first comment ?
Sorry for the late reply, but your comment has been marked as spam for some reason.
Try to install ERA Gaming Build: https://heroes3wog.net/how-to-install-era-3-gaming-build/ he should solve your problems quickly.
Is there any way to install custom wog files, like you could with the classic WoG? Also, is there a way to turn back how the Pikemen look? I prefer the original.
What exactly do you mean by custom WOG files?
If you install the clean version of ERA 3, pikeman will have a classic look.
Hello there! Can you help me about two things?
First is, that if i start era III, and do and ALT+TAB, or WIN+D, when i going back to game for system, its crashed, can’t be close even in the task manager.
Second thing is, if i want to play the original campaings (restoration of earthia, then armageddon’s blade, then SoD) its compatilible if i play this with era III mod, or just use hoom sod/complete? (with hd mod)
Thanks foreward for you answer.
why or why you need to use ALT+TAB? If you want to get to Windows, use F4.
The original campaigns are not compatible, you must use the Safe SoD mod https://heroes3wog.net/safe-sod-download/
I just often need to see other things when i play in the operation system, thats why i need to get to windows, maybe i try to run the game in window, because with F4, the game freeze exactly like before. :/ This safe sod mod did not work with the latest era 3.7, right? So first, i need to install the whole game again, then era 2.9.14, then the this Safe SoD, right? (or i just play with hoom3 complete, and its done…:) )
Hi, install ERA Gaming buil, then safe sod. What kind of Windows do you use?
how I can install Heroes 3 ERA Gaming Build ?
I download it but I don t see any exe, bat file..
is it OK to copy and paste it somewhere?
Nazdar Honzo, mal by to byť exe súbor, čo sa ti to podarilo stiahnuť? Vieš mi poslať názov súboru?
ERA Gaming build už ukončil vývojovú vetvu, ideálne prejsť na ERA 3 Launcher: https://heroes3wog.net/heroes-3-launcher-download/
Any one still play this ?
Any place for us to share the experience ?
Love you all.

I used my GOG version for HOMM 3 Complete
And I am getting far to many crashes (no matter if I run WoG in HD or non-HD mod)
I have reinstalled it few times but the crashes still persist.
Before I try anything else, could it be that the GOG version (latest) of HOMM is possibly different from the one provided here for download? (could that the the problem?
Ah, just now, after I test-wise clicked on the HOMM 3 link, I realized it is GOG link. Hence that is out of the question.
So I reinstalled it again, and now it works…
Hi, when we play multiplayer, a player attacks another player (both humans), and one can move and then should be the turn of the second player, and this cant move, and he continues seeing the other player turn, its so annoying this. Is there any solution to this issue?
We both have ERA Panda.
WoG insalled through the installer: all works as expected, but ONE single problem:
Henchmen die after every battle when enemy has a hero
– enemy AI army with hero (any battle, even castle siege)
– random hero encounter (with neutral units)
Basically my henchmen is set to DEAD after any such battle.
How to fix it?
Update Launcher, the problem should be fixed
Is there some utility for Chat history, or chat window for ERA3 or HotA?
Zdravim, da se nekde/nejak nastavit, aby specialni hrdinove byly videt ve vyberu pred zacatkem hry? Vim ze si je muzu hodit do hry v editoru, ale to nemyslim
