v. 1.2

Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday is stand-alone expansion of Paradox Interactive’s definitive World War II simulation, Hearts of Iron II (HOI2). Doomsday expands upon HOI2 in terms of available tech, the automated production options (bravo again), and the new Intelligence options. Beyond that, the game is identical to its predecessor.

HOI2 covers the years of WWII up to 1947 and the “winner” of the game is determined at that point by which forces (Allied, Axis, Comintern) have the most victory points, determined by the number of valuable provinces controlled by each power. The game is played mainly on a global map, accurate for the time period. Military groups are given orders and moved around the map similar to a game of Risk beefed up on illegal steroids. The gamer controls all manner of military units (almost literally ALL possible units) present in that era. Units are named according to their nation and the gamer can control around 20 nations involved in the conflict. Gamers can try their hand with one of the major players, such as Germany or the U.K.; they can take a still important, but less resource heavy role like Canada, or they can be minimally involved as Argentina or Brazil.

Thanks for testing this, scott Praed. It is good that you found that new product codes were not needed for v 1.4 or v 1.5. That was not my experience with Mac OS X 10.6.8. I will modify the description accordingly.

I tested Hearts of Iron II Doomsday in both os x. two systems is Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 on Power mac G4 1.25 GHZ Mirror door 2003 with Radeon pro 9000 Pro with 128 MB and 2 GB of Ram. I tested the game and updaters in Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and the game works in Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8. The updater 1.2 works in Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and The updaters 1.4 works in Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and The updaters 1.5 works in Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 And you will not need new serial numbers. The serial will works in Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5.8. After you update the 1.5 the video will not play the beginning.
