At last, one of my favorite games is coming to my computer. This is one of the games that I hated to leave behind when I migrated away from the Virus Operating System.

Have tested .sfs on Puppy 4.3 and Wary 5.5 - works .
It is 100% statically so should run on any Pup . Extracted into a full installs consumes 340MB space .

Problem I have with the QuestLog screen . First I could not figure out how to leave that , so killed the window . After that , the game was not able to figure out sound mode ( /dev/dsp or esd error ) .

Only 1 segmentation fault until now after playing for hours .
A second SegFault after hitting exit button Laughing .

I hadn't noticed this problem with the QuestLog, thanks for reporting it! Smile

About the sound, i think that the game can't use the audio card when another application requires audio output too. For example, i couldn't hear a thing when i had firefox with a youtube video loaded on a tab or mplayer with a paused movie.

It's 32bit only, I believe and if I recall correctly, it only ran on certain 32bit puppy's, too.

I've just solve the problem in Tahr like this:

It seemed did want to run under root. So:

Code:
su spot


than the game claimed for the disk space while creating /root/spot/.loki...

I change the owner to /root/spot from root to spot

Code:
chown spot:spot /root/spot


The game started softly! The only issue it's windowed and in small resolution. Wink

To run just in one line in terminal:

Code:
su spot -c heroes3



have fun!
