Installing Heroes Of Might And Magic III (3) On Linux (Ubuntu)

…to remind myself because I always seem to forget how to. 1. Put the contents of the CD somewhere (e.g. /tmp/heroes). 2. Install: /tmp/heroes$ ./setup.sh 3. Download and run patch with --keep: /tmp/heroes$ wget ftp://mirrors.dotsrc.org/lokigames/updates/heroes3/heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86.run /tmp/heroes$ _POSIX2_VERSION=199209 ./heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86.run —keep 4.

Now update: /tmp/heroes$ ./heroes3-1.3.1a-unified-x86/update.sh 6. Get the compatibility libs: wget http://www.swanson.ukfsn.org/loki/loki_compat_libs-1.3.tar.bz2 Extract them to a directory you can remember (e.g. HEROES3_INSTALL_PATH/lib). 7.
