or, from your Java-enabled Internet browser, go to http://www.heat.net. If you aren't already a HEAT

member, register your account information. Note, that if you already installed the HEAT software

from your Heroes of Might and Magic III CD-ROM, you will not need to download the software.

setting options. As the moderator you can start a game at anytime by clicking the Launch button.
