Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

A classic. If you like role-playing games and haven't played this one yet, here's your chance.

There's also an expansion pack, Tales of the Sword Coast, which adds several new quests, items, spells and some interface improvements as well as a multiplayer option, which does not work in Classic.

Followed by Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn.

There is also a copy-and-play version on Mega and the corresponding torrent to it.

Here are links to the Toast images as external downloads.

Tales of the Sword Coast
Download from Mega.Co.Nz
Compatibility
Architecture: PPC

Doesn't run in Classic mode on versions higher than 10.3.

May be troublesome in SheepShaver.

OK thanks. I removed the old magnet link.

Is the above "Magnet link for torrent of all 6 discs" needed? Was added back in 2013.

I don't think it's required anymore.

Add links to the disc images. I think I originally downloaded these from MCP's online archive before it was removed.

Oh sorry, I probably mixed up the CDs with Baldurs Gate_II.
A pity - all that net traffic for uploading stuff to useless file hosters. Sad

by garigass - 2013, March 21 - 1:07pm

thank you for answer, but unfortunately on the macdomain.org is disk 1 only((

by 24bit - 2013, March 6 - 10:56am

The disk images are on a Hotline server associated with macdomain.org.
An account at Knez´s WWW server is needed and a certain amount of postings in the forum to get access to the HL server.

What happened to links? Please, upload again...

No .dmg please, because this file format doesn't match Mac OS 9 and earlier.
And I think (but not for sure) there is no difference in file format between .toast (as given) and .iso,
except the suffix. You may simply rename the file extension from .toast to .iso to perform a first check, thought.

I am unable to mount any of these files with toast 10 or Virtual DVD-ROM/CD on an os 10.6 macbook, or os 9.2.2 and 10.4 emac booted into either. Could someone please upload dmg or iso images.

by 24bit - 2012, February 8 - 4:36pm

The image was made with Toast10 and it seems to mount with it too.
OSX tells me too, there was an error mounting the image.
Maybe I can try again with IMGBurn to create a ISO file, if there are more problems with Disk1.

Trying to mount Disc 1 on my tiger (10.4) I get the message that the image is not recognized. The four other discs are mounted without any trouble. Please help!

by 24bit - 2012, January 29 - 2:10am

Thundersock, here´s the link to the image of disk 1: http://min.us/mbId1WVe0
Hope it is a valid image file.

It's true that you can't use Roxio Toast to mount this one, but if you can't get around the "Insufficient system resources" error in Virtual CD/DVD Imager, you can try mounting with Roxio, then creating an image in Virtual CD/DVD Imager. Those never give me problems.

Hi Trine29.
No way (at least for me) to mount the CD images in Classic under OS X (10.3.9), same error. But in system OS 9.2.2 "Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility" works perfectly...

Multiple's picture

On iMac, 800 MHz, 512 MB RAM, PPC G4, System 9.2.2.
Baldur's Gate works pretty well... but TOTSC has SERIOUS problems. It crash with "type error 2" at game starting... it is not a memory problem I think, but a software problem. The only way I found is to start a new game in BG 1, then transfer it to TOTSC save folder and load it. This way the game starts and the expansion can be played but remains one (or more..?) big bug: the killers around the land who wants your head for money, after the dialog does not attack... They remains red circled but does not attack... It happens also with others enemies, always when a previous dialog takes place. Strange that this does not happens in BG 1... it's an expansion problem...
So, any ideas? Why the expansion corrupts BG 1 gameplay? A Mac patch for TOTSC doesn't exist... after many, many tries I think the problem is the executable of TOTSC... or something in the Baldur.ini file? Anyone encountered such problems..?
H-E-L-P...

by Trine29 - 2010, December 15 - 3:30am

Game wouldn't recognize the toast files so I tried using the Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility on two machines (one through sheepshaver and another through an ancient mac that still has classic on it) and both gave me an error saying "There are insufficient system resources to mount this image" Any ideas on how to deal with this? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

by RSK - 2010, June 12 - 6:26am

Thanks for the upload! Tales of the Sword Coast doesn't want to load for me, but I suspect it's because my computer doesn't have enough memory (type 1 and 2 errors). And since my G3 is 12 years old and going to be replaced soon, I kinda don't see the point of giving it more memory, especially since I'm curious about all the mods I've been reading about (and they only work in OS X now...meh).

Thank you for uploading it Carl. I always wanted to try it and it works like a charm on my iBook G3 366 Mhz under OS 9.2.2

by Istarian - 2010, January 22 - 3:10am

If you have Windows XP (maybe older versions too) you can download the trial version of TransMac (http://www.asy.com/scrtm.htm) and use that to burn the toast image. At least I know it worked for the cd image of MacOS 9.0.4 on here.

I haven't tried this game myself yet, but assuming you're using Mac OS 9 or earlier, you can try:

http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/virtual-dvd-romcd-utility

I use it in OS 9 to mount Toast images and fool copy protection that checks for CDs. Sometimes mounting with DiskCopy or Toast doesn't fool the copy protection check.

by liutenghou - 2009, October 13 - 4:55pm

hi all, I'm wondering if there's a way to mount these images so that the game will recognize them. I'm using toast to mount it, but the game doesn't see it. txs

I don't think you even need an e-mail address. It's been some weeks since I made my account, though, so I don't remember. Mine is free, but you get a lot of space. I think I've uploaded some 5 gigs so far. Smile

Thanks Carl,

I tried the OSX 10.3 and 10.4 BOMArchiveHelper, and the OSX 10.5 Archive Utility. Both process the file for some time before failing. I suspect perhaps an incomplete upload, which happens to me a few times too when uploading to this site.

I used the built-in "archive" feature in Mac OS X for all the discs, as I do for all my CD uploads. I'll upload TotSC again soon, something probably went wrong.

TotSC is corrupt fpr me too.

Stuffit Expander v7.0.3 crashes out pretty quick,
BOMArchiveHelper uncompresses for a minute or so and then fails with an "Operation not permitted".

Which version of Zip was used to compress it ?

The Tales of the Sword Coast image failed to unzip. I'm assuming it is corrupt. Can anyone verify? I want to make sure it is a problem across the board before I ask that it be re-uploaded.

Doesn't run in classic mode on versions higher than 10.3.

Similar to Monkey Islands 4 - runs best in Classic modes up to 10.2 Jaguar.

Yeah, I'm always awake at this hour, (for some reason, I am more productive at nights)
I go to sleep every day at around 5:00am

Holy shit. That was the fastest reply I've ever seen.

Well they're fixed now, enjoy the game. Smile
