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

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

The game starts, but I have no mouse nor keyboard, seems it is not "focused". Tried on i3 and lxde, I tried to press "Alt+Tab". Any idea? Thanks

Edit: It now works but... no idea why! Edit2: Maybe I just waited the cinematic ends.

I had an issue with wrestool missing. I had to install icoutils for the build to complete.

Afterwards, I also had to install lib32-mpg123 and lib32-libpulse to have everything working.

lib32-mpg123 was necessary to have the mouse working properly lib32-libpulse was necessary to get the sound working.

Now, the game seems to be freezing my comp after some time, time to see what happens

@Martian I like the solution you proposed so I cherry-picked some of your changes.

Martian commented on 2019-02-23 23:17

@czert You most probably got this messages because you didn't add your username in "games" group and restarted your PC

I don't suggest anybody to run the game with sudo

P.S. I just got hit by the same issue and I was in a playful mood so I modified the version of bwrsandman with one using unionfs-fuse to make a 'rw' data branch of the game data in $HOME/.local/share/gog-heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition. This should not require the user to be in "games" group or to reboot. Also I updated the version to 4.0.25024 as this was the only available in my GOG account for some reason. Source location:

(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)

czert commented on 2017-01-23 13:30

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?

bwrsandman commented on 2016-12-28 23:53

@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?

tea commented on 2016-12-27 01:17

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.
