    Classics Replacement For Snow Leopard
    Really all I'm trying to do is run the original Myst game, which I find all the trouble I'm going to pretty stupid, becuase it will probably be way too hard and I'll give up. But, I guess I have to see, cause I've been working on it for a while and I gotta see it through.

    I downloaded Mac OS 1.0 Update from Apple, and want to run it on Classics. I need the disk image so I can run Sheepshaver, but Classics doesn't work and everytime I try to get an OS I run into the problem that Classics doesn't work. So what do us Snow Leopard users do now?

    Ahhh!! This sucks. Thanks for your help!

    I installed Myst 3 on Snow Leopard, there are a few things you have to do to get it to work, like a patch for OSX installation and disabling one of the processors to make sure the audio didnt keep cutting in and out.
    Try this forum: [Mac] Myst III: Exile for Mac OS X - installation - Topic Powered by Social Strata
    read that page, I know its about myst 3 but will help alot, there is also a discussion on the original myst osx installation on that site somewhere.

    Hope this helps

    I wish I could say that does help but I'm trying to run the original game from 1993, which is superior in the music wasn't shortened and so the sound effects are all there.

    If you have Windows installed on your Mac, I'll give you a little tip... with games that old, it can be a nightmare tweaking emulators to get them running. Fortunately, there is an easy solution: GOG.com (Good Old Games). Now, they are specifically set up to be run in the newer versions of Windows, but they are ready to play without any special tweaks - and yes, they have the original Myst:

    I guess only a site named Z0OMGAWSUMGAMES.com would have it =/

    But seriously, I think they made Myst on the xbox iirc. You could probably get one really cheap on craigslist.

    "Classic" mode was a stopgap measure to permit older PowerPC Macs to run "Classic" Mac OS apps that didn't work in OS X. It has since been discontinued now that the Mac shifted over to Intel.

    In 1993, Macs would have likely been running MacOS System 7 - and could have been using a Motorola 680x0-series CPU *or* a PowerPC (which was brand new at the time). I'd be willing to bet that the original MYST was developed for 680x0, which is what the vast majority of Macs used at the time.

    So, to run it on a modern Mac, you'd need a 680x0 emulator and a copy of System 7 (which I believe was released to the Public Domain and was at one time available via Apple's FTP servers - but as I recall, it was released on Floppy Disc images).

    Long story made short, you're going to expend a tremendous amount of effort to get the very first release of MYST running. I don't recall there being much difference between the original release and latter releases for Windows. This is why I recommended looking into GOG.com, which has these software pre-built to run on modern machines with very little fuss. At most, you'd have to install Windows in a virtual machine.

    Thanks, unfortunately there must be a way because there's a torrent of it and people were getting it to work through bassilisk or sheepshaver somehow. I don't have a startup disc so it would be hard. I guess I'll just play RealMyst and enjoy it for what it is. But the problem with the newer myst games was that they didn't provide the full soundtrack and noises that are hints to something don't have a sense of space. These are some of the issues which is why original fans not me were upset at the new versions.
