For Mac OS 8 - 8.1 - Mac OS 9
This game works with: SheepShaver,

Majesty is a fantasy real-time strategy game. At first, it may look like another Age of Empires clone with its different buildings and units but the game plays completely different. You don't have the chance to control your units directly. They have their own wills and do whatever they want to do. The player can indirectly control them by setting gathering points to various spots on the map. Units then try to reach these points and will automatically choose the right action to do at this spot once they're there, e.g. fighting monsters, harvest food or mine resources.

Compatibility field says: 'Plays perfectly under Mac OSX in "Classic" mode.'
Is this a Classic Mode-only game or runs it Mac OS X native?
If not native, please remove 'Mac OS X' from 'System' field.

This is such a good game, very high replay value.

This might be out of context but, about 4 days ago, I found a telephone HTC Hero
the phone is not activated to work in Mexico, so I cannot make phone calls but that can be fixed for $30bucks,
and as I was tinkering with it because it has a system I didn´t know,
I found this game already installed (Majesty,,,,,) So i was surprised by that
but it´s hard to read the screen since the letters are too small,
the phone has android system which is a total copy of the iPod/iPhone touch
(the iPod touch is much better and smoother)
anyway, if you (Apple unfaithful) are interested, I´ll upload it somewhere
the game is really small, about 12Mb.

Northern Expansion and Majesty 2 never made it to Mac.

If you have a reasonable Intel Mac, and Parallels or VMFusion, then this, NE and Majesty 2 will all run reasonably well under Windows emulaion. All the PC versions should be readily available in the 'old titles' section of any game store (that still carries PC titles - getting very rare now).

Love the game. Anyone know where to get the expansion (Northern Expansion) or like user made maps?

Thanks for the endorsement. This really is one of the more interesting strategy games. I hope many more make the effort to download it and try it.

This is to Age of Empires like Caesar III is to SimCity. Like Caesar III, great, interesting graphic sprites for the characters travelling the kingdom.

I was really quite surprised with this game. I expected Age of Empires but instead got something, that while resembling a clone of Age of Empires, was in fact different and unique in a countless number of waves. It would be wise to download this one and to give it a chance.

"I'm just keen to get hold of a copy by any means necessary ... "

That line reminded me of the Mafia Smile

After reading so many good things about this Game,
now Ya'all got me interested in it and I'd like to have it too.
and yes I second motion that line: " any means necessary"

@MacWise: OK. I agree that people are rubbish at seeding torrents. I'm just keen to get hold of a copy by any means necessary ... and more than prepared then to seed it, or upload it here, or whatever. Guess if TM doesn't upload a torrent I'll just wait until everything here comes back online. I quite agree with you in principle about the need for a permanent download, however.

@mudlark: Even if the file's not available here, it shouldbe avaliable from the people who already downloaded it. That's the whole point of BitTorrent. So if the file is not available at all is because nobody's seeding it. Creating mirror torrents is not going to change that, but it won't cause trouble either, so be my guest.

by mudlark - 2009, August 31 - 3:27pm

I understand, and I think you make a good point: but my impression is that the file's already been uploaded to MacGarden but is presently unavailable because of this bandwidth problem. This torrent suggestion is more of a short-term measure, to enable people who want the software to get it even while normal service is suspended, as I for one haven't been able to find the game elsewhere.

So: If TataMisia were to upload his/her bittorrent file, would it overwrite the hosted file, or just show up in addition? If the latter, I think TM should do it: and once everyone has it, we can all upload the file to MacGarden for when the server comes back online. Your thoughts?

MacWise's picture
by MacWise - 2009, August 31 - 12:23pm

That's not a good idea, because the torrent is just a reference and not the file itself. So once people stop seeding (and that happens all the time) the file will be lost. The idea is to upload the file to MacGarden so in case nobody's seeding, the file's still available. That's why I don't like what TataMisia is doing: posting link to torrents, because before you know it, they'll be obsolete. That's no way of preserving abandonware.

by mudlark - 2009, August 31 - 12:55am

I think you're confused about how to make a torrent file, is that right? If so, here are some instructions. I hope it works for you: I'm not very experienced with this myself, but I would love to download the game.

1. Make an image of the CD (use Toast or something)
2. Compress it, if you like, using 7zip or some other program
3. Download a bittorrent client, if you don't already have one. Transmission is good.
4. Select the "create torrent" option in your bittorrent client. In Transmission it's under File>Create Torrent. You'll be asked to select the file you want to share.
5. You'll now be prompted to enter some trackers. I don't know if Mac Garden has its own tracker -- anyone advise?? -- but I suspect not. NB: If anyone reading has any better ideas than the trackers I'm suggesting here, please do put them in comments. I am a total amateur with this stuff. Anyway, try entering these public trackers, just as written, in the spaces indicated:
6. Make sure you're creating a public torrent (do not check any boxes that say "use private tracker" or similar)
7. Create the torrent and save it. Then upload it here: use the "add game" link at the very top of this page, and navigate to this page to upload it. You can also post the torrent to any other bittorrent message board you like. Make sure you keep your bittorrent client running until you've seeded it at least once. Preferably for longer.

I hope this works! Good luck, and thanks in advance for the upload..

If I'd kept the original upload I could seed for you (think it was original cd image plus manual plus patch).

by gob66red - 2009, August 21 - 1:52pm

Could someone seed this torrent for me plz.
I have only the demo but I already find it's a great game.

I have this too, CD size.

But this is another great simulation game with an oiginal strategy. If this truly is abandonware, it's definitely worth the effort to get this onto the site.
