Make sure to set 'user_allow_other' in /etc/fuse.conf

# echo user_allow_other >> /etc/fuse.conf"

After a long debug session I managed to find the culprit of LAN TCP/IP not working with this port (by LAN I mean internal network with no NAT, thus no forwarding or port opening is usually necessary): the unionfs trick blocks network connectivity.

The ugly temporary fix:

chown -R user:usergroup /opt/gog/heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition

And then

cd /opt/gog/heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition && wine Heroes3.exe

I do not know yet how to fix the unionfs bug. I tried mounting everything RW but that does no do the trick.

Fix of checksum error, while enable HotA or HD_mod


ERROR: Integrity checks (sha256) differ in size from the source array.


HotA_1.6.1_setup.exe ... FAILED

Fix: You need to add/replace sha256sum+=('SKIP' 'SKIP' 'SKIP') after adding source files in if statement of game add-on

My example of fix for HotA:

This is what I need to change in order to build with the HD patch:

#install: cannot stat '/mnt/magazyn/archlinux/gog-heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition/src/icons/HD_Launcher.exe*16x16x32.png': No such file or directory

I don't know, maybe something's wrong on my side, but otherwise it packages (I know that shortcuts are created in 'Programs Menu' from log.

BTW, do you plan to integrate "H3SW: The Succession Wars"?

adamruss commented on 2022-11-03 21:21 (UTC)

anyone got this working and can give a step by step guide? I finally got it downloaded, but no launch

After updating to unionfs-fuse 3.2-1, I get the following error:

fuse: unknown option(s): `-o use_ino,nonempty'
Failed to mount unionfs

Removing these options from /usr/bin/gog-heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition fixes the issue, but I'm not sure if this won't affect anything.

In order to get the HD patch installed (, thanks @rashkov from the link), I had to change

msg "Installing HD patch"
wine "${srcdir}/${_gamehdpatchname}" /verysilent


msg "Installing HD patch"
wine "${srcdir}/${_gamehdpatchname}" /Dir="${srcdir}/${pkgname#gog-}" /verysilent

@budRich icoutils is in the makedepends, is there a reason for it to be a full dependency? is wrestool used after installation?

edit: I see now, it was being overwritten on another line.

<deleted-account> commented on 2020-09-25 08:54 (UTC)

Missing dependency: wrestool, available in icoutils package.
