Additional Comments

The game does start and works without the HD patch for a while, but randomly crashes with different errors, some of which do not get logged. HD patch fixes all the crashing problems. Make sure you create an HD executable for HotA, the launcher can't enable HD for HotA without it. The HD Patch can be obtained from https://sites.google.com/site/heroes3hd/eng/download
