lag fix
by mr smith on Saturday April 20th 2019, 12:25
i had bad lag but i found that if changed resolution to 800x600 then it stayed fixed even after i changed it back to 1920x1080
msvcp71.dll error
by Aliekezhi on Thursday January 9th 2014, 18:14
My Heroes 5 was always working, but suddenly, with no apparent reason I had those errors :

err:msvcp:mutex_ctor Out of memory
err:module:attach_process_dlls "msvcp71.dll" failed to initialize, aborting

A workaround is to go in winecfg, Dll overrides, and add msvcp71.dll to native
Low fps
by Per Johansson on Saturday August 20th 2011, 14:09
I can't seem to get this game to run well. FPS is constant around 5 or so, and everything is very slow. It's not my hardware, CPU is mostly idle (about 10 %) and GPU should handle it fine.

Tried various regedit settings to no avail.

well i used winecfg on h5-game.exe . set a resolution and thats it. now when i try to launch the game i get the screenshot and then dark window with a h5 ikon in the upper left corner. when i try map editor it opens the editor window and an error: program error
encountered a sereous problem and needs to close
may becaused by program or wine deficiancyif this problem is not present on windows and not reported yet report under bugs.

problem not present under windows in a copy of the game (copy paste folder into another hdd)
wine 1.2.2 ubuntu 11.04

What resolution did you set?
If I remember correctly anything higher than 1024x768 produces these symptoms. The only way to solve the problem is to reinstall the game. :-/

As for me, I'm totally satisfied with playing in 1024x768 windowed mode, but my screen is small (14" laptop).

Try to enable virtual desktop in wine configuration.
That worked for me.
Map Editor problem
by mavka13 on Tuesday August 17th 2010, 20:36
Now, the game starts perfectly. Just wonderful!

However, I have problems with using the map editor. It behaves similarly to what was described in the bug no.20190 - editing pane continually refreshes at smaller and smaller sizes until it disappears.

I have ASUS UL30Vt with Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 and active graphics adapter Nvidia G210 with 512MB memory (a driver from Nvidia is installed). OS is Ubuntu 10.04.

Initially, I had wine version 1.1.42. Then I decided to try with the new one. Unfortunately, with the versions 1.2 and 1.3 the behavior was the same, however after a while the program crashed with the message

fixme:d3d:query_init Unhandled query type 0x4.
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0xff00000c at address 0x7e181947 (thread 002c), starting debugger...

Is it possible to do something with this?
Peformance problems
by Joe on Saturday January 23rd 2010, 10:26
Running version 3.1 on Karmic 9.10 32bit.
My problem was that the game would load fine until you got to the Main Menu. There the background cinematics would stall and the mouse was hardly useable. (Took me 10 minutes just to get to the Audio and video settings).

Anyway the only way I could get it to work was to run Wine as a window and disable the pixel shading.

To disable the pixel shading I had to go to the Wine configuration and click on the graphics tab. There you'll see, "Allow Pixel Shader (if supported by hardware)" Uncheck that box

It isn't the most responsive and the details aren't as accentuated but it is playable.

I suspect that it will improve when I get my much needed hardware upgrade soon.
