Oids Ever Heard Of It?
« on: November 08, 2005, 08:30:52 PM »
hay, I just found a game that I used to play when I was in kindergarden, think of Astroids where instead of fighting astroids you have to rescue stick figures from the surface of a planet, and along the way there are fixed cannons, missles, gravity wells, fighters, bases, even a mothership trying to destroy you, and you can make your own maps

only problem is, its for Mac, so I cant play it

heres the download
http://www.download.com/OIDS/3000-2276_4-10221054.html

anyway that it would be possible to play this on a PC?

I just hope they don't explode

you could use a emulator for mac.  Most of them that I have tried suck but do get the game working

For the good emulators to work you need some sort of emulation hardware that has an Apple BIOS ROM chip on it to work.

Unfortunatly, emulating an entire OS is not an easy thing to do especially for modern OS's.

So the answer is generally a no.

ummm what are you talking about?
This is a old program for a old operating system that has some awsome emulators. some of the emulators will even work on systems that are lower then a pII 233

pshh. i have a old pIII 933mhz that can emulate classic mac os at around 10+x of the real thing. youl'd be suprised by the capibilty of modern emulators. and a apple bios rom chip? hell no. a rom image is more like it. emulation hw? not needed.

h/o betaray, ill set up a package for you.

Yeah, a program like BasiliskII should be perfectly capable of running it.

I've installed System 7 on that emulator and it works great.
