Free implementation of Heroes of the Might and Magic II engine. SDL is used.

  1. Install PIPS (at least 1.6.0)
  2. Install SISx file
  3. Put data files to the root on memorycard i.e e:\fheroes2
  4. Enjoy ! ;)

  • UPDATED [0.30(4) low memory version ]  18.12.11 
  • UPDATED [0.30(6) new standard version] 14.7.12 


  1. it doesn't start...

  2. Are you sure that you have installed PIPS 1.6.0 or newer ?

  3. yes i have installed PIPS 1.7.5

  4. Added new version of Free Heroes,
    now with lower memory heap.

  5. Wow, the pointer of the game became less brake! Thanks for the update)) Sorry for my English) ...

  6. Thanks a lot for porting this timeless gem to symbian!

    But I have a (little?) problem with it. It works pretty well on my 600 Mhz Nokia E5, but when I try to save the game, it either hangs the phone, or hangs for a while and then crashes. I have the latest 1.7.5 PIPS, non-jailbroken phone and the rest of the stuff works without a hitch. What could be the source of the problem?

    Thanks in advance.

  7. Hi!
    Try create a SAVE folder here
    Perhaps it will help.

  8. Thank you for reply, but just recently I discovered that it DOES save the game, it's just taking a minute or two, so long that it seemed like a hanging phone :) Turns out everything works and I can play Heroes2, thanks again :)

  9. Thank you!
    It's a great game. Unfortunately I have some problems with it. :(
    I can't install pips on nokia n8, because of some kind of error. I tried different versions, but it's always the same. Seprisingly gome still works without installing it.
    But there are problems with screen orientation.
    Wha i play it in "landscapemode" it looks as if it was i portrait, but upsidedown! :O

    Can you, please do something about it?!

  10. Hi, thanks for new update. Everything works ok on E65, with 8 MB free RAM and good speed :-). Good work AG

  11. At last a working Heroes of Might and Magic for my good old E61i... grabbed the low memory version, works slow but still works ! Scrolling the map and managing combats come to be pretty nasty at times, but I doubt we can get anything better... we already got lots here !
    However what I think should be urgently fixed/added is 1. The save game writing process that takes ages to complete when it doesn't simply crash the game (had to disable autosave in the options)
    2. The addition of the "hot seat" mode which is highly missing and that I think is pretty easy to implement.

    Keep up the good work !

  12. Hotseat is there, once in game choose to restart a new game and select multiplayer.

  13. No problem works on Symbian Belle
    Please new vers. Stratagus - crash on s^3

  14. Is this ok when game is saving about 3-15min on SE satio ?? Other apps are turned off

  15. PIPS installation "error update," what's wrong? : ( NOKIA N8

  16. Very nice playable on Nokia 808, I guess I didn't even need install PIPS as it always ended by error. but then Installed Heroes and maps/data and it worked all great :). Thank you!

  17. Editing fheroes.cfg seving it at ANSI; Unicode; Unicode big endian; UTF-8 or somthing alse?

  18. Heroes Of Might And Magic 5 Game Ever since I've been gaming I've been known to devote myself to games that I love. I go to bed wishing I could play longer, have vivid dreams as though I'm still playing and spend days in a row playing for as long as possible. This cycle appears endless as, in being asked to put together a list of my favourite games, it continued to appear and reappear the further my list grew, so much so that it has almost become the common denominator. Upon considering this pattern along with recent experiences, I've come to consider myself a 'Gaming Monogamist'.
