ah o.k. no worries. The problem is I’m only on a GNU/Linux box and what works is I can play it in GNU/Linux via vmci otherwise I would have to either install wine or install MS-Windows both of which are unsuitable for me.
I am o.k. with waiting but would also like to help with playtesting or whatever is needed so that we get the tutorial implemented sooner than later.
It is great to see that still in 2013 Heroes 3 attracts new players!
Still, don’t think that VCMI is best way to get started with it. Our project is buggy, incomplete and rather meant for testing and initial mods development than just playing. Still, it can give you some fun.
As for the H3 tutorial, it is just another map (meant to be played while reading a totorial PDF). Go into maps directory and copy tutorial.tut into tutorial.h3m and it’ll show up in the scenario list.
However… at the moment VCMI crashes when loading it. The map contains hero wielding Shackles of War in the left hand, while it Misc artifact. Has the artifact slot been changed since Roe? I’m not sure how to fix it.
