@Katie Cadet: Sometimes the images of older CDs do not mount on modern Mac OSs. I find that this is more common for items dated 1994 and earlier. The main thing is that they DO mount on systems of the vintage they were intended for.

I can't read the ISO on both my MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid-2009) running OS X El Capitan and on my PowerBook G4 (15-inch Early 2005) running OS X Tiger (the latter was burned using Roxio Toast Titanium 6 and throws up a "Disk cannot be read" error after the burning completed). The copy has a working Barry The Bear ISO without the "Little Artiste" game, and I tested that on my Indigo iMac G3 (2000, 350MHz) running Mac OS 9.2.1 and all it does is crash the entire game when you double-click on its icon.

Just to clarify; this ISO contains both 'Barry the Bear' and 'POK The Little Artiste' Smile

Stuffed the ISO and adding to the uploads here.

Thank you so much, you've made things a lot easier for me.

Got this title together with POK The Little “Artiste” from Adventure Legends. Converted to ISO and burned to a CD. Both partitions shows up in respective system and plays/installs. Stuffed the ISO and adding to the uploads here. Smile

Sorry about taking so long to upload and currently not having a Mac-compatible file. I have created images using various programs including UltraISO, ImgBurn and MacImage but the game refuses to work for reasons I don't know. I got help from another user here (who uploaded a game by the same developers) who suggested I make the image using an actual Mac since the other methods weren't working.

I'm not massively familiar with how ISOs work especially since I've always been a Windows user. If you have any other advice it would be greatly appreciated because I hope to upload more games to the site.

  This is a PC-only disc image.

Hmm... going by blurb written on 3rd pic, this should have Mac content, too.

The OP dankeykang, will need to redo the image (hopefully using ImgBurn or UltraIso to do it) and re-upload. Uploading it to the internal server would also be nice.

Thanks for the heads-up, mrdav.

[Edit] Thanks for upping the hybrid, SwedeBear

This is a PC-only disc image. There is no Mac partition and no Mac executable.

  Hopefully I'll be able to create a working file when I have access to an actual Mac.

If you used ImgBurn or UltraISO to create a .ISO image file of the CD, then it will have correctly preserved the Mac HFS side, too. No actual Mac required.

The link I posted probably won't work in Mac emulators but should work fine in Windows 95-XP. Hopefully I'll be able to create a working file when I have access to an actual Mac.
