I downloaded a PPC application from Softpedia. Can I not run it using Rosetta? When I try to run it nothing happens. I have tried right-clicking it and choose Get Info but there is no Run in Rosetta option like there is with some other apps.

99% PPC programs will run like any other app. You don't need to do anything.

If it just doesn't work, then it's probably in the 1% of programs that just won't work on Intel, whatever you do.

I've tried it with lots of apps now but still the same. Maybe I'm doing something wrong . . .

This is a link to a website which lists PowerPC Applications which have Rosetta Compatibility.

http://www.macintouch.com/imacintel/rosettacompat.html

I couldn't see any offerings from Softpedia but the list was a few months old.

It appears that the Game just won't run on Intel Macs, this could explain the absence of the Run In Rosetta option.
