Newest one should be the best one.

  • Please report about problems on forums: Help & Bugs
  • old 2016's year release (not reccomended, archive version): 0.99

Step 2: Installing Heroes III data files

  • Install Heroes III from disk or using GOG installer.
  • Copy "Data", "Maps" and "Mp3" from Heroes III to:
%USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\vcmi\

Create this folder if it doesnt exist yet

Step 3: (for daily builds) download and copy and enable Essential Package

  • For some technical reasons its not currently included in game installation package and needs to be downloaded and activated seperately
  • download "VCMI essential files mods" from here https://wiki.vcmi.eu/Mod_list#Utilities
  • After unpacking, copy folder Mods to your main VCMI directory
  • When launching game, please enable "VCMI essential files" as well as its sub-elements: Andruids Bonus Icons, Bonus Icons, Spell Immunity bonus icons, Extra resolutions and Default templates.
