Game Details:

Welcome to the Hearts of Iron game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Hearts of Iron so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application. This page contains the game/port information, the “wrapper” and the instruction video how to get this game working on your Mac. All explained simple and step by step so every computer nerd can understand it. More info about porting in general check this section of the site.

Nice strategy game the first in the Hearts of Iron Series! You can find on this site Hearts of Iron 2 and Hearts of Iron 3 as well!

I recommend to buy the GOG.com version which is DRM free and works straight away out of the box. Used that version in the video. Click on the links mentioned here, create an account using the signup in the top bar on the GOG.com website and buy the game. You automatically get when creating an account 14 free GOG games (+ some dlc’s) added to your account so you have nothing to loose, only to receive!

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Hearts of Iron from GOG into your download folder.
3. Then in when you own Crossover use this CrossTie or when you use  Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!
