So I downloaded PlayOnLinux (along with wine) and purchased the game on gog.com. Downloaded the setup file and tried to install with it via playonlinux. Towards the end of the installation I get an error at a memory address which throws everything off. Here is the log:

Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00001970 in 32-bit code (0x00001970).

I know that playonlinux works with gog because I did the same procedure with installing Alpha Centauri. Nothing online seems to tell me how I can get HoMMIII onto Ubuntu 16.04. LMK if I can provide any other details please.

Thanks ahead of time.

  • Sorry. I misinterpreted your comment saying there was no entry. I was also busy with tasks and didn't look it up myself. Sorry on my part. Also, I think the Wine AppDB isn't version or distro specific. It's Wine, so the instructions should be universal. – InitializeSahib Aug 5 '16 at 6:46
  • I also would like to welcome you to Ask Ubuntu, and hope you have better experiences than this one. :) – InitializeSahib Aug 5 '16 at 6:49
  • No problem. Also, to prevent this comments section from spiraling infinitely, can you delete your previous comments? It'll make room for future discussion. – InitializeSahib Aug 5 '16 at 6:53
  • "boss" hey i got promoted! :D – InitializeSahib Aug 5 '16 at 6:55

A lot of games from GOG give me the memory address error at the end of the install, but after pressing 3-4 times okay it just ends the install, and I am able to add the shortcut.

If the dialogue does not appear to add a shortcut, you can try adding it manually by going to Configure => Create new shortcut for this virtual drive

  • This was exactly what I needed to do. Thank you. – ASwiftPeregrine Aug 5 '16 at 6:36
  • UPDATE: For anyone trying to download HoMM3 mod for it just go to playonlinux, search the game and install HD. They will provide you a link to the latest HD version to download (sites.google.com/site/heroes3hd) and continue installation. You do not have to go into configure and create a new shortcut like the previous step. – ASwiftPeregrine Aug 6 '16 at 6:32
