    Cannot install HoMM3 HD

    Hello,I have installed Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Complete using PlayOnLinux on my Mint environment, via GOG games.However, game is quite unstable.As the HD version fixes things, I tried to install it but this does not work. Here is how I am proceeding:
    • From PlayOnLinux: select GOG.com - Heroes of Might and Magic 3 HD mod
    • Then Launch from saved file "HoMM3 HD Latest.exe"
    • Select the C:\GOG Games\HoMM3 Complete directory to apply on

    Then I am getting the error that directory does not contain HoMM3?? (see here: http://upload.playonlinux.com/5ac31b65635a4.png )

    Same thing happens if I am installing directly with Wine.
    Can you please help?Thanks in advance, David

    You could try to use innoextract to extract the files from the HoMM3 HD Latest.exe and copy them manually to the HoMM3 folder.

    Re: Cannot install HoMM3 HD

    Hello,
    I managed to launch it finally.
    However even though I am setting Full screen mode in the launcher, the HoMM3 window is a 800x600 frame within the full screen... any idea?
    Options in the launcher are:
    - 32-bit True (stretchable) GDI
    - 1920x1080
    - UltraSaI + Bilinear SharperX2

    Thanks!
    David

    Can't help there I'm afraid. I only thought about extracting the files and copying after googling the HD patch and seeing that it doesn't overwrite and just adds to it, so figured you could try just extract and copy
    I don't own HoMM3 so can't test.

    Also, this might be of interest...not Wine, but an opensource engine for HoMM3 https://vcmi.eu/

    For me it worked perfectly.
    1. Launch heroses by typing: "wine HD_Launcher.exe"
    2. Click "Create HD exe"
    3. Set source size to: 1180x664
    4. Click play
