Well, 128Kbps is good enough for many, but not me. Audio is actually my job, so little computer speakers and anything encoded below 256Kbps is not usually even a consideration. Wink It may take me a little time to get to those MP3s, but you can enjoy the game without them for now.

I got the TIE Fighter .zip file just fine, but when I go to open it, it says that it can't find the CD. Did I miss something?

I would like to see the original Fallout for mac classic uploaded, can't find it anywhere, even to buy. All i can find is the mac os x version, and i KNOW the classic version exists.

It exists. The original was released in 1997 and, although it was PPC only, it was compatible all the way down to Mac OS 7 and only required 16 MB of RAM. MacPlay re-released in 2002 for Puma, with the actual port done by The Omni Group, and the original disappeared from the shelves to never return again.

The Mac OS X version apparently fixed all the glitches Fallout was infamous for, but it still ran on 8-bit mode (256 colors), and when Apple dropped support for 8-bit mode with the 10.5.3 update, it was rendered unplayable. Things changed when Apple restored 8-bit mode with the 10.5.5 update, but it's only a matter of time before they drop it again, probably for good, so the original Fallout is worth keeping around.

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' with 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User

Why is MYST in the "Wanted" list?
I downloaded it from Macgarden long time ago,

Andyman I agree, Fallout for classic Mac would be wonderful. Also superb additions would be:

Mad Dog McCree (loved the arcade machine!)
&
The Sims 1 (for OS classic)

Anyone has any of those?

I've got The Sims. It's not abandonware though, you can still buy it from aspyr.

Oh really? I didn't know. Thought since it's OS 9 and from the 90s it wouldn't be on sale any longer. In that case it might be better to wait until they've sold their stock to avoid problems for the Garden. Thanks anyway...

Now, about Mad Dog McCree.... Smile

I have Mad Dog McCree, hope the browser does fuck over this time. Mega-upload maybe an option here. Looking at about 230MB?

Re: Fallout

Nah, the box has minimum requirements of Mac OSX 10.1.4. Was there an earlier release for OS9 ? I thought it game out the same time as the first iMac G4's. My local Apple Premium Reseller still has it on the shelves.

It's a full CD anyway, 560MB for the app, +10MB for the manual.

Don't think so. The home page is still up and has more than we can put in a single page over here. Maybe we could link to it on the friends list.

Besides what MacWise said, I know Fallout for classic exists due to a demo that works for classic which can be found certain places. In its existence, that demo taunts me so......

hey everyone!
I'm new to this community and LOVE IT!
I've just found so many games of my childhood, this is incredible!! Smile

I would like to see Age of Empires 1 and Starcraft 1 if possible would be really nice!

there was also an old RPG-like game, in which you've played a knight, there were only 7-10 enemies, you could earn gol, buy swords and so on, unfortunally i've forogot the name, anyone has an idea?

thanks

Black and White or Colour ?

Top-down (you mentioned icons) ? or isometric 3D ? or first person ? or text only ?

Compact Mac or Mac II or PPC ?

Rough year you played it, ie. 1995 in which case we'll look at 1997 and earlier.

Answer what you can, if you don't know, say you don't know. If you're unsure, say you're unsure.

Only 7-10 enemies made me immediately think of Majesty.

no, not that complex, it was window-based and most of the gameplay was based on text and clicking buttons.
i've played it on OS 7.5 in (i guess) 1994, but the game was probably built earlier, well i think it's impossible to find if i can't remember the name Sad

Or rip the audio tracks to mp3 and include them. Some of us can learn how to rebuild the full cd from those parts. ... 128kbps is more than enough

Well, 128Kbps is good enough for many, but not me. Audio is actually my job, so little computer speakers and anything encoded below 256Kbps is not usually even a consideration.

Since we're looking to rebuild the CD (and trading everything that big through external sites like Megaupload), why not post the music in a lossless format like FLAC or Apple Lossless?

(I thought Toast could make images of hybrid data/audio CDs, but I guess I've never tried it...)

I'll take a shot in the dark and suggest it was from the Yipe! trilogy.

I don't know why you guys give yourselfs such a hard time with complex solutions to put together
a simple Hybrid data/audio CD's. (I've seen this repeatedly)

Just make an .ISO image of the CD in question and that's it,
(it doesn't have to be .toast all the time) whether in Windows or Mac as long it's out and available
I've done it myself using Alcohol 120% and it works
...just a thought. Tongue

Hmm. Arena Games? Swords, gold, buttons-and-text interface for fighting, a menu with exactly 10 opponents to choose from...

To Alcohol: the cause of, and solution to, 120% of life's problems!

@Ive: Age of Empires would be a nice addition. I've got the sequel and it's a really good game, but I never played the first. Starcraft probably isn't abandonware, Blizzard keeps updating their games for years after they've been released.

Also, does anyone have a copy of Atlas: the gift of Aramai? It's an RPG released by Freeverse back in 2001 or so. It's no longer available on their site, I even e-mailed them about it but they don't have it anymore. I think it was released as a download rather than a boxed version, so it's impossibly hard to find it anywhere.

And another game: the original Alias Underground, released as a freeware game for Mac and PC with several episodes that could be downloaded and prizes you could win. I've looked and can't find it anywhere. If anyone has it, could you upload it? I remember playing it and it was horrible, so it might be more of a curiosity than anything you would want to play but still interesting because it's rare.

WipeOut 2097! I know it was ported to Mac OS; I don't know if there were separate versions for OS9 and OSX, or if there was one Carbon version for both, but I know both systems were supported. I can still find updaters and patches for it online.

It was also known as WipeOut XL on PlayStation One.

Can someone "sticky" this topic for the time being? I had a hard time finding it.

I have original Age of Empires. I've been trying to experiment with getting the Data and Audio tracks off the disc into a format we can use again to burn a single disc. Getting them into a 122MB Data toast image and a 330MB Audio toast image is easy enough, but getting these back into a single CD with Toast 7 is significantly harder than it should be. Toast 6 chokes on this too, but Toast 5 Titanium did it perfectly.

Tried creating bin/cue files, and OSX .dmg files, but it won't touch anythng not in the first session.

I also have WieOut 2097. Didn't rate it at all, not compared to Episode I Pod Racer. Virtual Programming released Wipeout 2097 as a digital download in 2006 (after original launch in 2002) so this might struggle to be called Abadonware.

Atilla - WipeOut 2097,

Sorry, don't have a current link for WipeOut 2097. VP moved all their digital downlaods to Deliver2Mac.com some years ago. It currently includes some titles from as far back as 2002 and before - but no "Gates of Troy", or "WipeOut 2097", but archive.org shows they did sell WO2097 as a download until recently.

Do you think it qualifies as abandonware ? Given the effort we've put in to try and purchase it ? Or will you be content with SW: Pod Racer for now ? Pod Racer gets faster depending on how fast you Mac is. It was aweome fast on my old iMac G3 233MHz. Then crazy on an old PBG4 @500MHz. Then insane on my Dual 1GHz G4 MDD, then poo-your-pants fast on my 1.67GHz PBG4. I'm going to try it on my 8-core Mac Pro @3.2GHz under Sheepshaver today - it boots OS8.6 in about 6 seconds so I'm expecting new lap records.

I don't think it's an either/or situation; they could both be uploaded. (Assuming pod racer is abandonware; I haven't checked.) I'm more interested in WipeOut because I played it as WipeOut XL on the PSOne in 1996 or so, and it had an awesome soundtrack and cool visuals, and it could probably be set up with better controls on Mac than it could on PSOne because Sony's dual analog controller wasn't available when the original was released. Pod racer was a clone that came out much later on newer hardware (PSTwo) and has the dreaded Episode One stigma. Tongue But it did get good reviews and I'm sure lots of people would like it. Smile

Fly Don't Die. Not much I can say bout this game you where a sidescrolling fly accross a black screen and you dropped stuff on creatures down bottom of the screen, collected puzzle pieces which made a image of a caterpillar in order to advance to the next level.

Thanks and good luck tracking this gem!

Checked the Brøderbund webside, and it's not listed. Also it's 13 years old, so I'd say it's clear. Smile

Edit: They're actually called Broderbund? I always thought it was Brøderbund, but people didn't know how to type 'ø'. On their website it's an 'o', though. Puzzled

Brøderbund was sold to The Learning Company, which in turn was bought by Mattel, donated to Gores Technology Group, and then sold to Riverdeep, which kept The Learning Co.'s name and logo but redid Brøderbund's, changing the crown and losing the ø.

Windows users can't easily ø. Option-O for Mac users! Yay!

If anyone would happen to know where one could find Rodney's Funscreen and Storybook Weaver (though I'm not sure if one would actually classify either of these as games or apps--as an example to the system: Kid Pix Studio Deluxe (version 3) is listed under "games" and the predecessor Kid Pix versions are under "Apps").

In any case, I'd really appreciate it. Working on trying to make a disk image for people I used to go to school with, replete with some of the software we used on the Macs back then (circa LC III, LC 5xx).

Speaking of Kid Pix, if anyone would happen to have either the extended version of Kid Pix 1.0 or a version of Kid Pix 2.0 (you cannot access the requisite file from either of the two pages currently up).

Thanks!

I have a copy Green Berets: Powered by Myth II. I was making a port of Green Berets that could be used by modern copies of Myth II, which could also be played on any version of Myth updated past the initial release.

I also have Dragon's Maze 1.0, Star Wars: Droid Works and Return of The Incredible Machine: Contraptions if anyone wants those.

I am wondering on if anyone has these games:
Pippen - A Hypercard Stack that let you decorate an apple, Mr. Potatohead style
Turbo Tom - A education math game.
Hot Dog Stand - A sequel to Lemonade Stand, I think.
Number Maze - An educational maze-math game
SkiFree - Appernetly there was a mac port at some point.
Mazeworld - The prequel to Mazeworld: Catecombs I think.
Water Balloons - An old desktop app that let you toss water balloons onto passing people.

Yeah, although preserving the original install media is nice, ripping out the demos and trailers is common sense.

Wow, Deadfall looks good. I need something to keep me busy until Diablo III is out.

Edit:

Just going through my install media and picked out a new list of possibles for uploading to the site:

Stupid Invaders (4)
American McGees Alice (1)
Command and Conquer (2)
Age of Empires (1)
Age of Empires 2 (1)
Civilization CTP (1) - needs mirrored
Ghost Master (1)
Giants: Citizen Kabuto (2)
Knights and Merchants (1)
Rune (1)
Rune HOV (1)
Tropico (1)
Tropico 2 (2)

I still have to double-check that each is abandonware. The 2 command and conquer discs are first, but are there any requests after that ... ??

ps. I managed to get The Incredibles (which I already owned) and The Incredibles: When Danger Calls yesterday, for Mac, on 3CDs for £0.50 !!

Thanks, it took me like 7ish months to make Deadfall, and a ton of people seems to like it. Smile

Well, the demos folder contains 2 PC demos, and one trailer, so it doesn't seem to be worth it to include, Also on the disk is the PC installer, (mac is drag 'n drop), and a PC patch file. These could also probably be excluded for a little smaller of an image.

When this is done, should it be a .img, .dmg or .toast?

It'll be too big for the site. I'll download it, play it all afternoon and all night Smile and create a page on the site for it tomorrow with your link (unless you really want to do it yourself - it's easy "add game" at the top).

Can't thank you enough.

Edit:
As it's only 187MB, yes it could go on the site too. This would be a REAL find for Macintosh Garden.
