v. 1.5.1

Heroes of Might & Magic V puts players in a fantasy world populated by creatures of light and darkness, and pits massive forces against each other. You find yourself in the Griffin Empire on the eve of the marriage of Emperor Nicolai and his sweetheart, Isabel. Demons emerge and Nicolai has no choice but to lead his forces to war. It’s a turn-based strategy game. HOMM V features a full 3D graphics engine, new Dynamic Battle System, a storyline that features numerous objects, quests and plot twists, six campaigns and more than 30 missions, and multiplayer gaming support. (Nov 29, 2007, Macworld)

The 1st & 2nd downloads are parts of the zipped toast image of the game DVD

The 3rd download contains a replacement FreeverseLib

The game out of the box cannot be played because it requires online registration when this is impossible now because Freeverse is no longer in business. To patch the game so that it can be played, do the following:

1) Install the game from the DVD
2) Control click on the game application and select Show Package Contents
3) Navigate to /Contents/Frameworks/FreeverseLib.framework/Versions/A/
4) Replace FreeverseLib with the copy contained in the third download

I obtained the replacement copy of FreeverseLib by extracting it from a cracked version 1.4 of the game, patched to version 1.5. The version on this page is 1.5.1 out of the box, so after following my steps 1-4 above, the game will contain a (cracked) version 1.4/1.5 of FreeverseLib with the remainder of the game being version 1.5.1. Any fixes particular to version 1.5.1 of the game, that rely on version 1.5.1 of FreeverseLib, will not be implemented. Do not attempt to rectify this by running the 1.5.1 updater (not uploaded here...on purpose) as it will remove the patch that allows the game to run. I do not know of any cracked version 1.5.1 of FreeverseLib.
