Hello guys,
Great stuff right there. Nice work with the guide and scripts, works fine for me. I am learning with linux, but far so good. I made my HOMM3 work somehow.
However, I do not know what to do now. When I start the game, it wants to put an original CD Shadow of Death in order to play single player (which I want to). Otherwise I can only play multi player mode.

I would be grateful for any advice.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the report, there is indeed an issue with the script when you use the installer "setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe". I’m going to fix it later today.

If you have access to the latest installer "setup_homm_3_complete_4.0_(10665).exe" you shouldn’t have this issue, the game won’t ask for a CD.
Update

Heroes of Might and Magic III

Fix issue with old installer where the game would ask for a CD when trying to play a singleplayer game.
Worked like a charm. Thank you!
Have a nice day.

Did you use the new installer, or the old installer with the updated script?
I do not have the old installer (+ patch) anymore, so I couldn’t test it before releasing the updated script, I can only hope it works as expected ;)

I used the new installer, and can confirm that everything works as expected.
Thanks for reporting back, and have fun ;)
When you get HOMM3 to appear in a window (which it does automatically after the install), how to you actually do anything with it? I move the cursor on to it, and it disappears until the cursor comes out the other side. No keypressing or mouse clicking can affect the intro of the game. Can't seem to interact with it in any way.

[SOLVED] Leaving this here instead of just deleting it: you have to wait for the WHOLE INTRO to finish before your cursor appears and you can do the game. Took about 20 min of searching before I found a post about it on the interwebs.

Carry on.

The first time you run the game, you can not skip the intro movie.
I’ll think of a way to allow to skip it even on first launch, and include it into the script.
