This is a Universal Client [ x86_64 / arm64 ] and runs natively on both Intel and m1 machines.

THIS IS A PUBLIC BETA, IT HAS BUGS, A-LOT OF BUGS, PLEASE Do not download this If you are looking for a premium experience, because you won't find it here.

DOWNLOAD (read below FIRST.)

*READ BELOW BEFORE DOWNLOADING
edit: No seriously, read below, the amount of times I've been contacted despite all the notices is astounding.

 

------------------------------

IMPORTANT NOTICE

This application is code signed, but it is *NOT* notarised by apple, and will not be notarised during public beta, so you will most likely experience issues opening it for the first time.

It will be notarised on official release, and no extra steps will be needed.

If you see a message saying "Couldn't verify itself for malware" Open HoN64 by right clicking and pressing open, instead of just double clicking it, and it should give you an option to Open.

It is almost guaranteed you will have issues opening it on Mojave and above, and will usually be a random error such as "Apple couldn't verify this app for malware" or "This application is damaged and cannot be opened" and some others.

If you have any of these, type the following in Terminal:

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Heroes\ of\ Newerth\ x64.app/

No, that does not work. I tried to run a game after decent bot-only match and the DC icon was there. So only spectrate/mentor helps

Please post feedback here! Good and bad!

I want to thank all the people who helped test and fix issues on the HoN64 discord, you're legit legends all of you, this is why we *can* have nice things 🙂

I'd also like to thank all those who donated and helped reach the goal, these funds helped us get Mac developer certs, hardware, etc required to make this port.

---

This port took an absolute mountain of time to make, but I did not make it all on my own and I want to thank all those involved.

Except the people who have macOS and forced me to deal with this stupid cancer ecosystem, you make my life harder, please get windows, no thanks for you.

I'm kidding I'm kidding don't hurt me

I have the latest version of MAC OS (Not my choice, girlfriends laptop) wanted to test this out. Worked perfectly fine, no issues once booted. I had to run the code given in the terminal to actually boot but it worked! which is great. Ill update if there are any issues.

I have not played since June but when i start the game it asks to update and when i press ok it crashes immediately. What can i do? Is it related to the client not being supported anymore on mac?

Please note that patch 4.9.4 will be delayed by at least a few days for the Mac x64 client, as we still need time to modify the pipeline to build this client properly for all future releases (it was done by hand the first time). It is still in beta for a reason, after all.

Just wait dude. It's free to play and have to admit the Mac client is graphically superior any way. Go for a run 🙂 Although it would be convenient considering this game is making a comeback

My constructive criticism is that there was really bad product management when dealing with this patch. I understand Mac users aren't that many in %, but having them shut down for one week is not the best if you want to increase that %. I'm not sure why a new patch that hadn't been ported to all clients is more important than having a % of the userbase barred from the game. I hope it's a security issue, otherwise it's unjustifiable. Best practice would say that you first update clients, then release the new version. If we want the game to grow, well, this would be a nice first step. Thanks for the good work tho!

Technically, MacOS is not officially supported by us anymore & this is a client (still in beta) that we made just for the Mac users. Objectively and constructively, that is my feedback to the criticism.
