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

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

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.

budRich commented on 2020-09-25 08:54

Missing dependency: wrestool, available in icoutils package.

Make sure that you're using a recently built lgogdownloader-git. Regular lgogdownloader (the non-git package) is out of date and won't work anymore.

There's also a new URL for the HD patch:

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:
