    loki patches are notorious for not working nowadays. sorry to say that, but your best bet is running the windows version under wine. the upside is that WoG will work as well.

    Have you tried the new LIFLG installer[1]? Feedback is appreciated.

    Re: Problem installing Heroes of Might and Magic III

    hello,

    i have encountered strange error trying to launch heroes3:
    when i launch it as simple user ( ./heroes3 ), it loads up and says that there is no free space on my disk, while there is way more free space than 5mb (minimum requirement).




    i thought that something is wrong with permissions, but i can not launch the executable as sudo:

    ard@ard:~/games/Heroes3$ sudo ./heroes3
    X Error: 137
    Request Major code 131 (XFree86-DGA)
    Request Minor code 1 ()
    Error Serial #17
    Current Serial #17
    how can i solve this problem?

    thanks.

    Problem solved.

    I just had to delete /home/$user$/.loki directory, because game could not write into it (it was created as sudo).
    Started the game again, and it worked.

    Re: Problem installing Heroes of Might and Magic III

    I can see this is an old thread, but it came up in a google search when I went to re-install Heroes of Might and Magic 3 recently. I succeeded in getting it working on a recent HP laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). Here is the procedure I used (for posterity):

    1. Insert HOMM3 CD, navigate to the setup.data/bin/x86/glibc-2.1 directory
    2. Copy the "setup" file to a temporary directory: /home/you/tmpsetup/setup
    3. Make sure the directory is executable: chmod 700 /home/you/tmpsetup/
    4. Now you need an old version of libgtk: libgtk1.2.
    4a. This personal package archive (PPA) had libgtk1.2 as of Nov. 2010:
    https://launchpad.net/~adamkoczur/+archive/gtk1.2
    4b. Add the above PPA to your software sources, in Software Sources-->Other software tab, add "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/adamkoczur/gtk1.2/ubuntu lucid main"
    4c. Reload sources (option given after trying to close software sources).
    4d. Open Synaptic Package Manager and install the libgtk1.2 package (will automatically include some others).
    5. Making sure you are in the HOMM3 CD top level directory, run the setup program as root: sudo /home/you/tmpsetup/setup
    6. Now download and decompress the patch:
    6a. Download the patch (as of Nov. 2010, it appears to be at ftp://mirrors.dotsrc.org/lokigames/updates/heroes3/heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86.run"
    Note: You may be able to use ksh to just run the patch (./update.sh). If you don't have ksh installed or wish to do this manually, follow the remaining steps:
    6b. Create a temporary directory: mkdir heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86
    6c. Enter that directory: cd heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86
    6d. Decompress the patch: tail -n +177 ../heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86.run | gzip -cd | tar xvf -
    7. Now patch the install:
    7a. sudo bin/Linux/x86/loki_patch patch.dat /usr/local/games/Heroes3/
    Note: this may return an error "loki_patch: dynamic-link.h:57: elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion `! "bad dynamic tag"' failed." However, the update should have correctly updated the heroes3 and heroes3.dynamic executables, and added 3 README files.
    8. Play Heroes3!
