Compatibility
Architecture: PPC

This is a hybrid CD for PC & Mac.

System requirements Mac:

System requirements PC:

Common requirements:

Plays perfectly under Classic on an MDD OSX 10.3.9.
Can also play from the CD (or mounted CD image) but can't save High Scores.

Untried in any emulators, but I'm sure I've heard it plays fine in SheepShaver. Update this with your experiences.

It's been uploaded. You'll need to wait for it to get pushed to S3.

You won't be able to download it by FTP. This is because some people abused the FTP server (used it for their own warez). I have access to the FTP, and will fix it in a few hours.

Tried to download it myself, exactly as you describe. What can I do ?
Upload it again via the Web Page ?

Shall we try a Stuffit v5.5 format this time ? since I've trashed the original .zip file I created.

I see the zip file but when i try to download it the ftp client says ThrillridePinball.zip: No such file or directory.

see below

macintoshgarden.org, I connected as anonymous.

Don't use the Mac OSX "Connect to Server ...", use ftp in Terminal.

by toprak - 2009, August 6 - 3:25pm

what's the ftp address?

I ftp'd the file up to macintoshgarden.org, just checked it's still there.

62C ? My Macbook Pro runs around 80-90 C often with no problems! Smile But yeah, that is hot.

Yep, the first upload crashed, after experimenting with .sit and .zip, cooked my MDD and had a KP - first time in nearly 2 years. At restart the temperature was 62C. Nap mode and 10 minutes rest it was back down to 40C, then I started the HTTP upload again.

Restarting now.

@bertyboy: something failed. You can upload it via FTP to anonymous@macintoshgarden.org and I'll take care of it.

still no download link ? I must have completed the upload about 20 hours ago.
