Guides on emulating older games

"As the fourth installment of the very popular HoMM game series, Heroes of Might and Magic 4 brings many new things to the game while retaining the good old interface design and gameplay."

"The game still is about exploring huge maps with your heroes and armies, collecting treasures, building up cities, fighting monsters and defeating your foes, so this part has not changed. There are six new and large campaigns and 24 single scenarios to play. 48 new hero classes and many new skills have been created so the game is even heavier on the strategic side as before. You now can lead multiple heroes to battle as well as separate troops from heroes (so you maybe move troops alone to another hero).

The new battle screen has now isometric view instead of side perspective. And now your heroes may fight side by side with your soldiers (yes, you now can use them for real battle, not only magic)."

Architecture: PPC

Minimum requirements: PPC 350 MHz, OS 8.6 or later, 800x600 resolution in thousands of colors, 750MB hard drive space.

I'm preparing a spreadsheet with all of the mac games I can find that can be played locally as LAN games. I have three kinds of LANs in mind: a group of B&W compact macs (running SSW 6.0.8), a group of LC475s (running Mac OS 8.1) and a group of Mac Mini G4s all running Mac OS 9.2.2. Almost all Mac Mini G4s have a 32MB ATi Radeon 9200 chipset but between a 1.25GHz and 1.42GHz G4 with a bus running at 167GHz. They are super Mac OS 9 games machines.

I have 6 games so far for the compact macs (Maze Wars+, NetTrek, ArmorAlley, Pararena 2.0, Spectre, Spectre Supreme, Bolo ), another 7 for the LC475 (Doom, Marathon I, Spectre VR, Command & Conquer, Doom II, Marathon 2: Durandal, WarCraft I ) and the rest are either PPC Mac OS 9 (or below) or Mac OS X (10.3 or below). I have, by no means, finished the list.

I'm up to 87 games so far and since I've only ever played about 10 of them as LAN games, I'm having to rely on what is written in the manual or in the games notes.

I should really send fogwraith a PM to let him know how far I've got.

I haven't tried this one but if I recall correctly even the first HOMM (or 2nd?) offered LAN games (human vs. human) via AppleTalk. Such an info would be cool to have with each game page. I think fogwraith is preparing something in this regard with the Mac Garden redesign ... Smile

This is a multiplayer game but can it be played on a LAN or only online?

This is an addicting game! It took me a while to get used to the music however, it's either wonderful or fairly excruciating. I grew to tolerate it, but some of the operatic in-town music took some adaptation.

Put them all in the same folder, and drag-and-drop the first one onto StuffIt Expander 5.5 or later. Mac or PC no difference.

What software do you use to join .1 .2 .3 .4 files with?

You're welcome. This one was actually quite a chore because the discs didn't work well with any of my CD-ROM drives--and the discs were previously unused. I guess they must have been one of the varieties that hasn't held up well over time. Took forever to image them, but it worked in the end. Now if only I had time to play...

I'd like to leave a "big thanks" for the uploader. Great game!
