How to play Heroes 3 online with friend using HD mod
Heroes 3 is still very easy to play online with friends nowadays. Forget the crap version that can be purchased on STEAM (does not include the Armageddons Blade and Shadow of Death datadiscs).
I’m talking about the Heroes 3 Complete version, which you can buy via GOG.COM (it costs around €3 most of the year) to which, when you install the HoMM3 HD mod, you immediately have an Online Lobby available and you can play with your friends or just challenge someone.
How to play Heroes 3 online?
2. If you managed to install these two items correctly, run HD_Launcher (you should have a desktop shortcut)
3. Make sure that the HD+ option is checked in HD_Launcher, only then will the Online Lobby become available. If it is checked, click “Play”.
5. When logging in for the first time, you must create an account under which all your successes and failures will be recorded. Just enter a name and password (you can also enter an email, but it is not necessary).
8. But we are going to create a game with a friend. Click on NEW GAME and fill in the Game description, Password and Number of players. Then confirm.
9. The game is now created. You have to wait until your friend joins you. He must also install Heroes 3 Complete and HD mod. You must have the same versions of the HD mod (if you don’t, the game will notify you and you will update the HD mod).
11. Great, you’re both in the game now. Whoever created the game can also run it. Now choose the random map template or scenario you will play on, the towns you will play with, or leave everything to random. If everything is set, click on “BEGIN“.
12. You still have one settings screen in front of you, where you can BAN some objects from the map and mainly turn on Simultaneous Turns. Confirm the selection and you are in the game.
13. So it begins. And you already know the game, may the better one win. You can use the same online play process for Horn of the Abyss.
