Installing Heroes III data files

  1. Find a way to unpack Windows Heroes III or GOG installer. For example, use vcmibuilder script inside app bundle or install the game with CrossOver / Wineskin.
  2. Copy (or symlink) Data, Maps and Mp3 directories from Heroes III to:
~/Library/Application\ Support/vcmi/

Connect to the mod repository (optional)

  • If that's your first installation, connection to the mod repository will be configured automatically, you'll see mods available to install from VCMI launcher
