PlayOnLinux Install Script for HOMM1

January 30, 2013 • English, PC Games, Programming

Yesterday I just played around with PlayOnLinux install scripts. Previously I have successfully installed Heroes of Might and Magic 1 bought from GOG.com to my Linux box using PlayOnLinux.

There’s no PlayOnLinux install script for this game at the moment and manual install is not that straightforward. I needed to tweak a bit on DOSBox configuration (yeah, GOG’s HOMM1 uses DOSBox). Therefore I decided to make a script and hope it can be submited to PlayOnLinux website 🙂 Still needs to adjust the script to follow their scripting standards but at least it works if you want to try:

Download the script here.

You can also track this script development at POL’s forum here.
