Hello. I Can't install any mod for HoMM3.

I have DL Complete eddition of HoMM3 on gog (4.0) but when I try to install in the same folder, the HD mod 5.0 beta 38
I have the following message:

"HoMM3 HD must be installed on Heroes of Magic and Magic III SoD or Complete. Selected folder does not contain required Heroes of Might and Magic III files, so installation of HoMM3 is impossible"

Same things for the Hota 1.5.1

I dont understand why because i've got the COMPLETE GOG EDDITION and i'm doing the installation on the right folder

I saw only one post on the forum about a simile topic , from TheSly03 , Posted December 06, 2017.

Any Help plz ? I want to play HD complete eddition...

You mean the mod for widescreen support, named as "HoMM3 HD". Did you read the instructions for it before downloading it? I'm pretty sure it says install inside the same directory as the game executable.

In other words, not in "GOG Games", but instead directly inside the "HoMM 3 Complete" folder.

I've just checked the website for it and it says "HoMM3 HD 5.0 beta 41":
the main page
the download page
See if this later version helps.

It seems to have installed two executables. Here's the path and names on my system:
GOG Games/HoMM 3 Complete/HD_Launcher.exe
GOG Games/HoMM 3 Complete/HD3_Launcher.exe

I've launched both and they seem to show the same thing. I don't know what the difference is. Ultimately, adjust the settings in the dialog that appears and then click the button near the top to "Create HD exe". That will show a save dialog. The default location and name seemed okay to me, but be sure it doesn't overwrite anything for you. Whatever you save will be the executable you need to use to start the game to experience the settings you chose. That means you can create multiple executables with different settings for different purposes.

Personally, I only unchecked the "HD+" setting and left everything else alone. You might want to uncheck that if you don't want the game play changes listed on their website for HD+ version. The plain "HD" version without the plus + is suppose to be just the widescreen support.

But definitely find the instructions for whatever other mods you actually have and read them thoroughly. Sometimes instructions are on more than one page.

I had the same problem when installing HoMM3 HD mod as well. Luckily, I backed up the content of Heroes 3 Complete (CD version) install directory, so I was able to install it there. I've zipped up the necessary files for the installation and uploaded to my dropbox. Try downloading it from the link below (copy and paste it into your browser) and unzip it to the HoMM3 install directory.

I have this issue as well. I tried using your dropbox files but it did not work : i was able to launch the "hd_launcher.exe" and create the "heroes3 HD.exe" file, but nothing happens when i launch the "heroes3 hd.exe". If i launch the initial exe, the HD mod is not taken into account.

Any help will be appreciated ! thanks

Further information :
- I tried installiong Hota and had the same issue.
- I'm using wineskin under a mac, but it doesn't seem to be an issue as it worked for other people...
