I needed 3 hours to find out how, but it works on Sierra.
It is really simple.
You just need stuffit (for the .sit), then realize you need an emulator of old macs.
Discover sheepshaver and not understand at all how it works.
Read forum threads, search stuff, download stuff, try stuff, fail.
Find out about "redundant robot sheepshaver", but then fail again.
Read forum threads, search stuff, download stuff, try stuff, fail, cry a lot.
Find miraculously a Standalone Sheepshaver (thank you Emendelson, my hero)
Figure it out, then launch the emulator, not having a clue how to use the .toast file you have got.
Read forum threads, search stuff...
Use Disk Utility to create a DVD/CD master image of the toast file.
Add this .cdr in the volumes of the virtual machine settings.
Install and play the game.
Yeah, when you know what to do, it is really simple.
Good luck and have fun. =)
Hi, I know this game only works with mac OS Classic (7,8,9...)
I have installed the game on sheepshaver and everything but they still tell me I have to use a Playdisc to play the game with SheepShaver. And the problem is, I can′t use the .toast of the playdisc on sheepshaver so I can′t access to the game, the campaigns and stuff, only to the multiplayer mode... :( how can I do that ?
Installed everything on Sheepshaver with OS9, following LAERO′s steps. That part worked great.
I then tried to run the game with play disk 1 loaded into the ′volumes′ menu of Sheepshaver. The game opened, and then about 2 seconds later, stopped on a black screen. I could still move around the familiar-looking HOMM ′spear cursor,′ but nothing loaded, so I couldn′t click on anything or get to the actual game menu. Has anyone else run into this issue and know how to troubleshoot it?
As explained by LAERO, I have installed the game on the virtual machine OS9 with Sheepshaver. The trouble is that the installed version enable me only to access to multiplayer. When I launch the soft, a window tells me to introduce the play disc within the lector.. How do I bypass this?
works fine noobs.
unzip with default program.
open install disk with stuffit 2010.
install the game, it will be located in your applications section.
use stuffit to extract play disk 1 (forget about play disk 2, its corrupt)
mount play disk1. (just double click it)
run heroes from the install directory in your applications folder.
I use The Unarchiver (which is use for unpacking .sit file, u can download it on app store)
But when i try to install, the game said: "You can’t open the application “Install Heroes 3 Complete” because the Classic environment is no longer supported."
It appears to me no one got answers to their questions in this comment field, but i′ll try anyway. Im also new to mac and i get som kind of error message when trying to extract the sit files. Living in japan causes the message to appear in Japanese and i don′t fully understand it but it has something to do with the folder, so i presume its the same problem others have had. Would really appreciate any help!
When I download the file, all I get is an empty zipped file which I cannot extract.
I think this problem is caused because this is a mac version... but the real problem is that this mac version is the ONLY version.
I know beggars can′t be choosers, and also miracles never happen, but is there someone awesome, kind and epic enough to upload a PC version so PC gamers can enjoy this game too?
