I decided not to include the HD patch by default since the checksum was changing too often and it was too difficult to maintain the releases. I guess I forgot to update the title.

If you want to use the HD patch you can uncomment a few lines in the PKGBUILD file:

source=(... "http://h3hota.com/HD/HoMM3%20HD%20Latest.exe" ...)
sha256sums=(... 'SKIP' ...)
build() {
# msg "Installing HD patch"
# wine "${srcdir}/${_gamehdpatchname}" /verysilent
package() {
# Give group write access to HD3 launcher config
#for conf in _HD3_Data/HD3_Launcher.ini _HD3_Data/Settings/sod.ini
# touch ${pkgdir}/opt/gog/${_pkgname#gog-}/${conf}
# chown :games ${pkgdir}/opt/gog/${_pkgname#gog-}/${conf}
# chmod g+w ${pkgdir}/opt/gog/${_pkgname#gog-}/${conf}

(By "not working" I mean, I get the error "Files from Heroes III are missing. Please install Heroes III." when I run the game without sudo)

Thank you for this package.

Basic installation works great for me, but I have two issues: after installation, i have to run the game with sudo, even though I did add myself to the "games" group. The second is, the HD+ mod is not working for me. Is that a bug, or did you mean something different by "HD patch" in the title? If so, is there a way to make it work with this package?

@tea, I have moved the dotfiles to .local/share and removed the WINEDEBUG settings.

I don't know why Heroes3.exe isn't working for you. Do you have the whole error message?

I'm not too crazy on the script adding a hidden directory in the root of home. In general we want to be discouraging flooding home with tons of dotfiles; I recommend putting the wineprefix in .local/share/*something* instead.

I am also finding that it, er, doesn't work for me. Heroes3.exe is telling me some files are missing and I should reinstall it. I can't for the life of me see what those files might be though, the installation looks complete.

I would also discourage setting WINEDEBUG in the launcher script to silent since that makes it hard to diagnose any other potential issues.

@urukhigh That's lgogdownloader asking for your GOG username and password.

Try running lgogdownloader to setup your credentials so it doesn't ask again.

What mailbox and password?

bwrsandman commented on 2016-02-24 12:22

@qark That's a connection problem (HTTP ERROR: 403 FORBIDDEN).
Try running: lgogdownloader --download-file heroes_of_might_and_magic_3_complete_edition/en1installer1
If that command doesn't work, try and see why. Maybe you have the wrong credentials or you haven't purchased the game on gog.
