HOMM3 Multiplayer in-game crash/freeze

Post by arthell » Sat Dec 08, 2018 8:14 am

Hi all,

I have managed to get Heroes of Might and Magic 3 to work multiplayer via wine, which is fantastic. I'm playing against my cousin, and we are both on Macbook Airs. The problem is that the game sometimes crashes when when one of us gives up his turn. So far it has only happened after one of us has battled against an AI player, usually only if the battle lasts for more than a couple of minutes. When the person then gives up his turn, the load timer gets stuck at 67% or some other number, and doesn't move no matter how long we wait.

Another detail is that it's only possible to connect if he hosts the game. He is unable to connect to me if I host. Don't know if this is related but thought I'd mention it.

This is of course really annoying because the longer battles start after an hour or so of playing, and then we just can't continue playing because the battles themselves are inevitable. I think it has also happened once when the AI fought between them selves also but I'm not sure.

Anyone else experienced this or has any clue of how to fix it? Thanks!

Adding a screenshot of how it looks when it freezes:
