Can GoG really look into this or even speak with Dege at vogons to let them patch the screen issues of this game.

ddwrapper patch made for this game "works" but it doesn't bring the game into higher resolutions and it is always iffy on fullscreen mode

Chaos Gate also suffers the same issues, and Shadow of the horned rat suffers the same since it is a mix of wing32.dll and ddraw and in need of a wing32 patch on the likes done to HOMM1 and 2.

what happened to the GoG that would send tech people to look at this and fix it?

If you like Dege's work then just use it. If GoG made a deal to distribute Dege's dgvoodoo2... they might still not be able to use it because of an unacceptable amount of friction with anti-virus heuristics.

I don't see any ddraw wrappers included with the game?

How do you expect to bring a 2D bitmap into a higher resolution?
That seems like a job for the display driver.
The best that could be done is a custom scaling algorithm...like Scale2X or HQX?

As I said on Vogons... I think you misunderstand the WinG situation with SOTHR and HOMM.

I ended up playing Chaos Gate in the BoxedWine emulator, though I don't remember why at this time.
