Nearly everyone knows about Harry Potter, the little child wizard from the books by J.K. Rowling. In this action adventure game, you are Harry Potter and play through the story of the first book (and the movie), Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (aka Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone). You arrive at the Hogwarts School of Wizardry where you will learn how to cast spells, create potions and how to fly the broomstick. Ocarina of time hd download. When you are ready, you'll have to find and retrieve the Sorcerer's Stone which is in danger - 'he-who-must-not-be named' wants it too. (MobyGames)

Download #1 is an image of the installer disc for version 1.0 of the game

Download #2 is the updater to version 1.0.1

Download #3 is a small 'noCD' image, tested works in OS X and should work in OS 9 too. You mount this image to the Mac Desktop before launching the game, you save storage capacity by not having to keep the big original disc image which would also work to launch.

(notes from garden user 'SkyCapt':)
This game is one of the greatest for 3D immersion on PowerPC using OpenGL done extremely well. It's got everything going for it. Not only are the gameplay and story great, but it's great for many technical reasons also.

HP (made 2001 thru 2002) video rendering can be scaled up to high resolutions which push the best PowerPC hardware (made thru 2006) to their edge of ability. Read-on below for more about this.

HP is using what's known as the 'Unreal Tournament' render engine, a particularly good version of UT at that. The advantage is UT had and still does have a large following online, so websearches or joining the UT'ers yields a wealth of information on tricking out or cheating Harry Potter based on just applying the more well known things Unreal Tournament has to offer. Read-on below for more about this.

HP defaults to being limited to no more than 1024 X-axis video resolution, based on the ability of contemporary year 2001/2002 hardware. Most of us who use newer hardware will want to play higher. Here's what I recommend.

You will need to edit a file which doesn't exist at first. If the first thing you do is launch HP without the discless or disc image mounted then HP will create the necessary file 'Harry Potter/HP.ini' and Quit without playing. Now edit this file going to the bottom of it and near the end you'll see this line 'MaxRes=1024'. I recommend changing this to 'MaxRes=2560' a well known and very large resolution. This won't at first affect how HP plays. It might not offer any better resolutions from the HP options menu, that may depend on your particular graphics config. What it does do is lets you additionally input custom resolutions higher than 1024. I missed seeing this text line first, which is why the 'Screenshot 2' here is 1000X1600 resolution when I could have showed off even more and presented 1200X1920 (my display's native res).

Now you can try forcing Harry Potter to any resolution desired. The choices in-game at the options menu might be no good choices, so further edit the 'HP.ini' file to set these two lines 'FullscreenViewportX=' and 'FullscreenViewportY=' to whatever you desire, even if Y>X, called 'Portrait mode video' how seen in Screenshot 2 after I rotated my HDTV hardware ninety degrees and software Tiger System Preferences Displays ninety degrees.
Some desired resolutions you try might not work fully and possess a distorted aspect ratio, ymmv. The game menus and opening movie could play distorted while the actual gameplay is ok in your desired res, so give it some time (as I don't know a way to skip this long intro, other than launching saved games).

The combination of high resolution and ninety degree rotation reveals an interesting thing about my hardware. The portrait video mode does render significantly better and faster (higher frame rate) than the equivalent resolution at standard (landscape aspect ratio) video mode. Nature would have the opposite effect, slightly, due to X-axis computer algorithms being more efficient than Y-axis ones. So I believe the way I get a big difference that opposes the natural order is as follows: my video card natively internally draws with rotation already, and when placed into 'standard' landscape mode it actual internally draws WITH rotation which involves a conversion algorithm is inserted into the video generator execution. Rotated, already, is how my graphics card was built.

Ninety degrees rotation into portrait video mode is giving me a major performance edge over standard video. Individual graphics card drivers and configs could differ for yourself and therefore have standard be the better renderer. Using Harry Potter might be how you gamers will find this out.
