  • Mount your Heroes V DVD with udf as filesystem type
  • mount -t udf /mnt/cdrom
  • Continue as usual in win2k mode

Installing Needed / Missing DLL Files

Heroes V complains that it can't find the dll file named d3dx9_25.dll, and won't start.

Install the DirectX 9 update found on the DVD.

Optional, Remove Videos

    mv video/intro.xml video/intro.xml.bak


  • Camera controls works best with keyboard.
  • Lots of graphics issues at "high details", set it to "low" (default)... not many issues with patch 1.4 and cedega 5.2.8. Some lighting issues at all detail levels.
  • If mounted with iso9660 filesystem type, installer will complain about missing manual (case sensitive problem), mount it with udf !
  • Any errors (cannot find CD, directx not installed) when starting may not appear and HOMM5 will simply quit.
  • crash with 1.0 NOCD solution


Various eyecandy looks best with Cedega 6.0.
