played a demo of this few years back ran ok on 7.
very odd not much of a sequel more an arbitrary evolutionary spin off.
the hexen sequel was not very good either but at least was more inline.
all pretty lame heretic was a good fps classic deserves a better lineage.

Works great on Win10 64 bit!

Here's some detailed instructions if you're having trouble.

1. Download the main file and fix file to the desktop. Get the manual file too (good lore in there).

2. These are zip files. They might just unzip when you click on them. If they don't get a unzip program like WINRar. Unzip them to the desktop.

3. In the main file, drill down and you'll see two files, a large mdf file and a small mds file. You need to mount the small mds file. I use Daemon Tools Lite. It's a matter of opening Daemon Tools Lite, and I choose 'Quick Mount', point to the small mds file and click Open. That file is now mounted as a drive in My Computer.

4. Open My Computer and you'll see the Heretic II as a drive. Right Click = Open.

5. Go into the 'setup' folder and you'll see the SETUP (application file). Click on that and the game will install.

6. After installation and before you play the game, install the fix. This comes from the other zip file. It's a single file called quake2.dll. Extract the file and place it in the directory in which you installed the game on your C drive (or wherever). If you chose the default it will probably be
C:Program Files (x86)Heretic II
Windows will ask you if you wish to replace the existing file of the same name Yes

Game runs perfectly.

Game works on windows 10. Just make sure to use the fix and run this in compatibillity mode with windows 98/me also make sure to run this with administration rights.

There is no installer or an .exe file in this huge download, it has just 2 files in a zip folder. These files are .mdf extension and it does not run at all.

Fix doesn't work (windows 8.1). Is it region-specific? Because I'm using my physical disc rather than downloading the disc image.

hi , The fix basically has a quake dll file . I have nowhere to 'replace' any file. and it says it is not compatible with 64 . what to do..?

raj 2015-10-14 1 point Windows version

doesnt it work in windows 10?

Tyreael 2015-10-07 4 points Windows version

Hi, i'm on Seven 64 and it's works perfectly. Don't just run the automatic installer.
Go in Heretic II Setup Setup.exe
And the installation will works.

OUTraged 2015-08-12 -17 points Windows version doesnt even look like Heretic at all. Not to mention its third person and not first person. Why did they butcher the sequels to these? Even Hexen 2 was terribly made. Hexen 2 just looked like a Quake mod, it had the exact same gfx as Quake. So bad....I wouldn't be caught dead playing this disgrace.

Thanks working on W 7 64

If it Crashes on you watch the intro do Not Skip it

ps you might want to change your screen settings on your windows

Does running in Compatibility Mode and, or, with Aministration rights when installing help?

camel 2015-06-08 1 point Windows version

Works perfectly on Windows 8.1 64bit.

You just need to keep in mind that you also need to apply the fix for Windows to play. You can download the fix with the instalation files.

After installing Heretic 2 unpack the folder containing the fix for playing on Windows inside the instalation directory of Heretic 2. When it asks if you want to replace the current files with the new ones press yes and you are good to go.

Heretic 2 is an awesome game. Have fun.
