I am using a Macbook Air 1.7GHz Intel Core Processor, with 8GB RAM, & an Intel HD Graphics 5000.
I am running DOSBox-0.74-3-1.
I've looked through multiple guides on multiple sites, as well as watched multiple youtube videos. I am a DOSBOX beginner, which is the problem. I tried following the step by step instructions from this DOSBOX page:
"Create the game directory
Copy the complete game content to the game directory
Create a subfolder CD
Copy the complete game content also to this folder
Create a Profile
Start program: HEROES2.EXE
Setup program: INSTALL.EXE
Add a virtual CD-ROM drive
Mount the subfolder CD as the virtual CD-ROM folder
If you get a black screen on startup press a key
If you download "Heroes of Might and Magic II - The Succession Wars Deluxe Edition" from:
Copy the content of the zip file to your game folder and mount a CD image choosing this file from your game folder:
I've managed to mount the folder containing all three files, that I've placed in one file. My version of DOSBOX can find the directory, I don't fully understand some of the short hand there. I think my issue is that I don't know how to start a game that uses .cue files. I don't understand the "addition" of the author either. What does it mean to mount a cd image? The archive.org version I downloaded comes in 3 parts with 3 .cue files and no .exe files.
Huge thanks in advance. I never got to play this game when I was a kid.
