now if you got black screen on start up or crashes to desktop, you can use the unofficial hot fix that released by znork on forums.ubi.com – official forum of might and magic :

“It was tested just a bit, and they encountered critical perfomances issues. However at the very same time was happening a server overload so those ingame perf issues may have been caused by those server issues and not the fix.

If some of you have a laptop with this issue, or even no issue at all and desktop it would be cool if you can DL the .exe, replace the old one with it (KEEP the OLD ONE and MOVE IT TO A BACKUP FOLDER) and tell me if you see any issue (perf, crash..).”

This also fixes the blinking / disappearing mouse problem

you can also try the registration file :
I found a solution that works for me:
Put this new key on the register
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\GraphicsDrivers]
“tdrLevel”=dword:00000000
then restart, the game’s launching

another way to fix heroes of might and magic 6 black screen by vaskoul:
1) Open the file “ProfileData” located in \Users\your_userame\Documents\Might & Magic Heroes VI\your_username folder.
2) Change the line:
<gfx_InvalidateShaderCache>true</gfx_InvalidateShaderCache>
to
<<gfx_InvalidateShaderCache>false</gfx_InvalidateShaderCache>

This solved the problem for me and works even with the original exe file.

fix heroes of might and magic 6 crashes when starting game :

<gfx_Resolution>1280×720</gfx_Resolution>
