It is the beta-version 3.6:

Equilibris_v3.60 HD beta (4:3 and 16:9 form factors) (113 Mb)
Equilibris_v3.60 beta (form factor 4:3) (23 Mb)

HD Version Resource File (Not required. See below.) (97 Mb)

To install, run the used installer and follow its instructions. The HD version, in addition to the "native" resolutions, supports screen resolutions of 1366x768, 1600x900 and 1920x1080. The mod includes a French translation. The original WOW files are no longer needed to install the mod.
For a description of the new functionality, see the equilibris.chm file in the root folder of the game.
Equilibris_v3.60 beta installer does not include HD version resources. But at any time, you can download the corresponding resource file, add it to the \data folder of the game and get the HD version of the mod (if your monitor supports this resolutions).

Q: Why beta, and not a full release?
A: The beta status is given for the following reasons:
• Lack of full testing. For example, the mod has not been tested online.
• This version of the mod contains some bugs (see the "Bugs" section in the file equilibris.chm) that do not seriously affect the gameplay.
• Some of the game objects (new treasures) are not balanced, translations into English and French are not corrected.
In general, in my testing, the mod showed stable operation, no critical bugs were identified.

Q: What is the performance in HD mode?
A: The mod was successfully launched in HD mode on AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual 4800 + / 2Gb / NVIDIA Geforce 6150SE nForce 430 int. Stress testing was carried out on a system Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz / 4Gb / NVIDIA Geforce GT 1030 on a two-level XL-map ANKARIA-RESSURECTION - 1Vs4 with many graphic objects. At a resolution of 1920x1080, the display of the strategic map is not very fast. The performance is good at 1600x900 resolution in full screen mode. For this, when armies move on the strategic map, this maximum speed has been increased from 6 to 14.

Q: Are there any other problems?
A: Yes, the some antiviruses (in particular, NOD32) conflict with the mod. Add files h4mod.exe and c_e_mod.exe (c_e_mod_buka.exe) to the antivirus exceptions or disable the antivirus while playing.

Q: What about the 16:10 form factor?
A: Currently no work is underway.
