What does not
Playing the game without the HD patch. See extra comments.
What was not tested
Multiplayer, which is known not to work out of the box, see footnotes to various versions to get that working.
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

Follow these steps to get traditional TCP/IP multiplayer working:
1. Install directplay dlls as described here.
1.1 Manual install is also possible. Steps are:
2. Remove DPWSOCKX.DLL from the core game folder (where the .exe files are located).
This workaround was suggested and is described in detail in the comment to a related bug report.
