Elder Scrolls Daggerfall Mac


 Daggerfall Mac Download




I've created a single click executable that allows you to play The Elder Scrolls Daggerfall on the Mac. Download the .zip file and extract. Click on the file inside to play the game, nothing else needed, no configuration, nothing. Just play. It will start in full screen mode, however ALT + ENTER will revert back to windowed mode.

Daggerfall Mac includes all the official Bethesda released (v2.13),  and the CD version of the game that includes the Intro and all the cut scenes. The Save game bug has been fixed, tested to work on Mac OSX 10.9.x Mavericks.

Nice port, how does one save a game though?

Paul Rowland said...

To save use 'ESC' then 'Save Game' button.

If you are trying to save in the starter dungeon, 'Privateer's Hold' it can be quite hard as it's know bug with Daggerfall.

You will get a message similar to 'daggerfall has encountered an internal error at 1000'

Once you're out, it should save if you try, be patient.

More bandwidth added

Leilani said...

I can't get it to save, no matter where I am. Every time, it crashes with the internal error above, saying it can't write to the disk.

Paul Rowland said...

Just tested it, there's a download button you just click, no signup needed.

--Okay I answered my own question, in case anyone runs into the same problem: I trashed the app., then re-downloaded it, and now it works fine. Weird?

is it virus free?

You're making the world a better place to live in
Thanks dude
Awesome game

I CANT SAVE. I got out of the first dungeon like you said and as soon as I got in to the open world I thought "Ok now I should save just in case it crashes". So and went to save and a command prompt comes up and says C:\DAGGER> I desperately need to play this game. How can I fix this? Thanks alot. By the way I love your app called Lander, its the most entertaining app Ive ever downloaded.

PAUL PLEASE HELP US

Paul Rowland said...

I've fixed the problem with saving games and uploaded a new version.

The new version also includes all of the official patches Bethesda released (v2.13) and the CD version of the game that includes the Intro and all of the cut scenes.

This works on OSX 10.9.1 Mavericks.

Enjoy.

This is amazing Thank you so much !

Alec Brady said...

Hey there Paul,

Thanks for the great app.

Now I understand alt + esc is windowed , but how do I revert it to fullscreen? I'm stuck with a small centered window with a black frame.

Any ideas?

Having trouble opening, what should I open it with?

Anonymous said...

It says I should download Xquartz X11. Should I?

Paul Rowland said...

XQuartz is fine, this is the official response from Apple:
X11 is no longer included with OS X, but X11 server and client libraries for OS X are available from the XQuartz project: http://xquartz.macosforge.org. You should use the latest available version of XQuartz.

Paul Rowland said...

Hi Alec,

Thank you for your support, very much appreciated.

ALT + ENTER toggles between windowed and full-screen (back and forth)

Kind regards
Paul

Hi does this work with OS X Yosemite?

Anonymous said...

Nevermind I just opened this using Yosemite, it seems to be working so far. I've unfortunately never played this game before, but now I'm definitely going to. thanks for doing this Paul!

Anonymous said...

It's the guy who asked about Xquarts, hey again. I'm not a big computer guy, but i do love the Elder Scrolls series with all my heart! (Thank you so much for helping me with my dream of playing every TES game!) I don't want to goo through to much to get it to open. I also had a bad experience with a virus I obtained while trying to download applications that were said to help open the game. Is there any real easy way to open it? I have OS X Yosemite and am having lots of trouble with it. I've recently given up and just let it sit on my desktop, but have gained intrest in th game. Everyone else using OS X Yosemite seems to be fine, and that's why I'm wondering why I'm having so much trouble. Thanks, and don't take this the wrong way! I really appreciate what your doing, and Thanks. -Sean
PS I think you should work on Morrowind when it's free to play!

Anonymous said...

Did anyone else have to download Xquarts to play the game?

Anonymous said...

I will get Xquartz, but do I have to type a specific command into Xquartz, or will it just work automatically?

Someone please help me I just want to play this game

Anonymous said...

i'm having a problem in windowed mode where i cant move my cursor, anyone else have this problem? either than that works great and thanks for the port.

Paul Rowland said...

I'm running Yosemite 10.10.3 and have uninstalled XQuarts and the games still plays.

After unzipping the file you should have a single Icon, double click that and it should play. Nothing else to do. Noting else to install, should just work.

I can't seem to open the first door or swing my sword. what's going on?

Anonymous said...

nevermind, needed to click to open the door. and had to hold attack and move mouse to swing. thanks for the game! :P

Keith said...

Hello there. I just downloaded this version of Daggerfall today and it works great for me....on the first time using it. If and when I close it, I go to click the icon again, it takes me to DOSBox 0.73 and needs me to input a directory after Z:\>

What do I need to type in to resume the game? Thank you for reading this post. :)

Anonymous said...

KaganPittman said...

Your "single click executable" is just a picture... I click it and get nothing but an expanded image... What am I doing wrong here?

Anonymous said...

Same problem as the gentleman two comments above. Not getting a confirmation mail. Any tips? I'll try again later today and see if it's fixed itself :)

Anonymous said...

Ignore my previous comment, got the mail. It was just super-super slow. All good, looking forward to test out daggerfall again! :)

Anonymous said...

Same issue as Kagan. The link is just an image.

Paul Rowland said...

Sorry about that guys, have made it a direct download link now, no emails, no messing about, have tested the link. All OK

Unknown said...

I was wondering if it's possible to use save files from the daggerfall save folder from a windows to put it on a daggerfall save folder on mac? I tried and i got an error loading it form the mac. Any ideas?

Anonymous said...

Is there any way to play in windowed mode?

Anonymous said...

Hi, Any chance for reupload? Link is dead.

Caroline said...

^ Sadly it is dead: "File does not exist on this server." I would love to be able to download this! I've been attempting to configure and install Arena via DOSBox for the last...well, while, and was thrilled to find your packages! Oddly, the Arena download link is live and available from the same website; it's just the Daggerfall link that's dead.

Anonymous said...

Paul, the link is dead :( . I'm desperately trying to get daggerfall running on the Mac but your link was my best hope!

Anonymous said...

I know its said before but just to make sure the issue is noticed. The link is dead! Really hope a fix can be made soon!!

Just letting you know the link is dead.

I just found this and I am so excited all six of my nipples are tingling. Thank you for doing this. I will put up some feedback after playing for awhile. Thanks again.

I was very excited, then I discovered that the link is dead. Can you create a new link to the download of the mac version of daggerfall? Thanks.

LINK IS DEAD

Unknown said...

link is dead and I really want to play it please fix

Paul Rowland said...

Sorry guys, have updated link, should work now. Will need to find a more reliable FREE upload service going forwrd

Unknown said...

I open and I just get a DOS prompt saying that I need to run Daggerfall.exe from the hard drive. When I type daggerfall.exe it says there is no CD found

Anonymous said...

Same here, prompts me to run Daggerfall.exe and then says I need to insert CD

Paul Rowland said...

Have re-loaded to a more reliable hosting service, can re-try the new download.

Im using macOS Sierra and downloaded from link. Unzipped and right clicked executable then open (first time only for security purposes)

I did notice that the dos box window appeared briefly, then was gone. (Thought it was the download hence re-uploading)

For me it didn't like running for the first time from the 'download' folder. I moved it out to desktop, right click, open, and worked perfectly.

Try running from desktop for the first time.

Jordan Stalker said...

Thanks for taking the time to make this available. Have you experienced lag issues in macOS High Sierra? Seems to be the new standard for me...
