Help guide

Welcome to help & bugs forum.

  1. If you have a question regarding VCMI in general, this forum is the right place to ask.

  2. If you want to report a bug, visit our bugtracker. Please follow bug reporting guidelines.

  3. Do not ask questions that are in fact bug reports. An example of such question is "when I launch VCMI, my screen gets black and starts to burn. Is it normal?"
    It it up to you, the player, to tell us, the developers, what is wrong with the game and how it should work correctly in your opinion.

  4. A lot of info is available on Wiki. Many questions have already been answered on our board. Use of search function is strongly recommended.

The team is little and our time is limited. We cannot provide technical support to thousands of players. Take your time to read all info available. Think twice before you start a new topic.

Having trouble figuring out how to install this game.

I extract using 7-zip and there are a bunch of files resulting. I’ve tried double clicking a number of them but honestly cannot figure out how to install (including VCMI_Client and VCMI_Launcher).

Any help?

Just copy all extracted files into your heroes3 folder. Copy, not install. Then click VCMI_Client.exe or VCMI_Launcher. Of course, we are talking about Windows version.

version windows 0.99

is there any way to ask VCMI to store all its settings etc files inside its own folder instead of My Docments or other “standard” location?
in other words: how to make VCMI binary-portable (in or sense of the word “portable”)?
did I miss some command-line parameter mentioned on the wiki or these forums?
