Hehe, yeah I know. Thought I'd put Classic Mac OS behind me for years, but Mac OS seemingly wanted a word in that decision Tongue

That's a mighty claim you got there. Wink

How about the Mac version of WALL-E?

No, it's the regular movie adaption released for both Mac and PC. WinMac.

I believe I have a couple of copies.

could you upload them? I've been looking for that game forever.

Me too.

I grew up with it but eventually ended up losing the disc. (I'm sure many of you can relate.)

I can still remember some of its soundtrack...

Nope.
I always put the discs back in the box when I've finished using them ... same with DVDs, floppy disks, video tapes, cassette tapes, ... I was brought up proper-like to keep my things tidy. Wink

Even when we were little me and my brother were "trained" to put all our toys away properly when we had finished playing with them ... no stray Lego bricks were ever accidentally stood on in our house. Smile

Actually, I got it wrong. I didn't lose the disc, I lost the entire set, box + game. It just got misplaced (as is common in many households with children), and I simply haven't seen it since.

Come to think of it, I did know to put discs back in their boxes, but I didn't necessarily always put them in the right one... Wink

Hi all,

@N2000 and @Ewechan I've got a copy of Wall-E (PC and Mac hybrid DVD-ROM) I wouldn't mind uploading it if @sfp1954 can't or he beats me to it.

@BryMD Would you happen to have Monsters Inc Mike's Monstrous Adventure, I've been looking for that game for years and all I've found online are Windows only ISO's but I know there is a hybrid PC and Mac CD. Even tried my state library interlibrary loan service but they don't allow borrowing of CD-ROMs...

Hi MacGenius.

Had it, donated it. Can't remember ever firing it up though. Do I remember correctly this being a combined Mac/PC CD-ROM? Rummaging through my stuff right now to see if I imaged it before giving it away.

PS: Don't have that much time these days for uploading new stuff just yet. Will though, as it closes in on christmas Wink

PPS: Most of the stuff I know for sure I have that is not available here at the Garden is from around this time (2002) and earlier. More important things temporarily came between me and hoarding Mac software after that point (is there such a thing? Tongue ), though I still have some nuggets of gold in the 10 years that followed Wink

Thanks @BryMD for your time.

Yeah I think there where two releases of the game, the first in 2002 which was a hybrid disc and a re-release in 2005 under a "Disney Classic's" title which was just Windows (I think, from what I've seen on auction sites). Anyway I know there was a hybrid disc as I still have the installer files on my eMacs hard drive. Just don't have the game anymore.

It would be cool to see what you've collected from this time, I'm excited for these "gold nuggets" lol. In my opinion the late 90's to mid 2000's was Apple's best period of evolution of their computers, or maybe I'm just bias as that's what's most nostalgic for me.

That's how technology affected pretty much all of us, nostalgically and each period within its season, MG. I like your handle's initials by the way Wink

And while those before our own time may jeer at what the we, the 'younger folk', were excited about at the time, each generation yearns for what was 'hot' for them at the time A select few manage to break the mold, connecting to a period before their own, be it just the previous generation, perhaps through the stories of their parents or even further, maybe through the influence of their grandparents or other older mentors or other people they admire(d), allowing those interests in the past take them back in time, so to speak.

I know we're all doing that here in some manner or fashion, which is perfect and meaningful for all us to do. It honors the heritage and legacy of our own personal past. Plus it's just fun Smile

TOTALLY with you on that, man!

The time span 1999-2005 (from the time 3D acceleration became the norm until Apple transitioned to Intel) was the peak for Mac gaming as far as I'm concerned! Volumes of high quality native titles released for the Mac either simultaneously or within months (not years) of the PC counterpart. Aaaah, memories Smile

Man, had a whole book shelf in 5 levels filled with Mac software/games at around 2002, but then moved abroad to start university and they were left behind collecting dust. Did a thorough cleanup around 2006 where I collected my most precious software in a crate (yes, a crate Tongue ). All the rest was stupidly donated in 2009 Sad

Will try to do the ground work and make a list of all the software that is not here on the Garden when I get the time. Would really appreciate it if some of you would chip in and help me upload the software when time comes, as the registration of each app/game is quite the laborous chore.

Didn't see this thread before, so I figured I'd chip in my two cents... (It's been a while since I last looked here. Tongue)

One other point I'd like to make is that there apparently are a few software items on MR which are still being published (or some components of which are still being published), not here but in other places - for example, 4x4 Evolution 2. I mean, there's a page for 4x4 Evo 2 here, but there are no direct download links on it - only a link to a download page on a different website (which still requires one to create an account on that site). I can't help but wonder why MR hasn't been issued any takedown notices yet (to my knowledge anyway, correct me if I'm wrong)...

I seem to recall Clasilla working on my side with 8.6.
I always preferred the .6 releases over their siblings. 7.6 and 8.6 were both my favourites.

Yeah, have noticed the same thing myself. The servers might be run from some forgotten country where law is hard to apply?

I rather doubt it, but who knows? All I know is, I didn't find anything on the site about where it's based last time I looked.

To come back to the subject, I just want to list the rules if someone wants to be a new member over there:

By registering, you agree to the following rules. Infringing any of them will result in an account termination.
 
1) Do not use a temporary/disposable email. MR does not share your address or send spam/newsletters.
 
2) Only 1 (ONE) account per member. Do not share your password. Lost your username/password?
 
3) Be nice to everyone when you post anywhere, including in the chat, comments and software pages.
 
4) Do not spam or promote anything of a commercial or political nature anywhere on this site.
 
5) Do not attempt to mirror, hotlink or download all files. Only pick what you need; 20 files per day max.
 
6) Do not use a proxy, an IDM or an IP-changing VPN. If you do, then don't complain your downloads fail.
 
7) Do not attempt to use the site with IE 5 or Netscape as it's not working porperly, use Classilla.
 
8) Guests can download < 100MB files, signed in members < 1GB files, donators: any file.
 
9) Admins are not obligated to help anybody with file/support requests, which are reserved for donators only.
 
10) When an admin sends you a private message (important) you agree to read and reply to it quickly and honestly.
 
11) Deleting any content without first consulting an admin could result in a temporary account suspension.

I hope to NEVER become one of their member!

Well, I wonder if the rule 5 is a joke in reference to the Garden, isn't it ? I know that there is already members from there that are also members here & I know they don't respect some of their disruptive rules, thank goodness. I'm not be here to judge them, as we are doing same thing no more no less. But we are not doing especially a kind of "copy/paste" of another site. They have uploaded a lot of thing we have not, like we just do. But their main source is undoubtedly the Macintosh Garden. That's why I will take softwares from them for uploading here no more no less & without retaliation...

Wow, so they're not even nice about it.

This solidifies the fact that the Macintosh Garden is undoubtedly the superior website. Nicer restraints, nicer people, nicer layout, nicer name, nicer owner, etc...

The watermarked images are a good idea. Catch them red-handed.

Instead of watermarked images, I think we can also, put images with for example registration to the MacintoshGarden... Smile

Both are a very good ideas for sure.. the second 'registration notice' image can be one that we can copy/download directly from the Garden and then upload with our own pics.

Now all we need is a quick-and-dirty [ place online maybe? ] that we can add macintoshgarden.org to our images

Maybe this one? It's the first place I found online was: https://www.watermarquee.com/watermark with no sign-up/sign-in needed. Hmm, I wonder if we can share their 'pro' account, since it looks like they only have one paid offering, a lifetime of an unlimited set of watermarking options for $12, as a one time purchase.. that would likely take care of all of our collective watermarking needs, of course it's hard to beat the free option too, lol! Laughing out loud

https://www.watermark.ws also has a free tier, but you have to get an account to use it, so more trouble for occasional usage.

Real quick-n-dirty: https://www.umarkonline.com Wink

Boy.. who knew? There're a ton of these online, lol! Smile

I prefer the "free" option. Smile Just look at this page I have created yesterday. Pay attention to the screenshots Wink Yes, I have downloaded that from the mirrored site. But, they have put something else in their screenshots. So I have created different screenshots (and better) to taunt them just a little. But, we can do that with future softwares to avoid them copying or see what they should do...
If we use watermarked screenshots, we need to upload them on the page first. What I want to say is we must not upload "not watermarked" screenshots before replacing with watermarked ones. It's really so easy to retrieve original images in that way by navigating through the page.

It was only a joke. Smile Putting that slogan on the images simply gives the fool some free advertising, even if it is "bad publicity" advertising.
