Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Battlestations Midway transports you back to World War II, as the navies of the United States and the Empire of Japan square off in the Pacific Theater. You follow the story of naval recruit Henry Walker from 1942 onward. You control over 60 warships, aircraft and submarines as you participate in dogfights, artillery attacks and naval battles, jumping between dozens of units, playing alternately as a pilot, gunner, submarine captain or carrier fleet commander. The game also features multiplayer gaming with support for up to eight players. (Macworld, July 28, 2008)

Plays in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish

Downloads 1–7 are the parts of a zipped archive of the game DVD (Version 1.0). To reassemble the complete DVD image, place all the parts in the one folder, then drag the .001 file to The Unarchiver. This will join all the parts and unzip the archive. There are other methods to do this, but this one is as good as any.

Download 8 contains the update to v. 1.0.3. Replace the game application with the one in this download. At present you can also apply the update from within the game but the Feral server for this will eventually cease and then the 1.0.3 update on this page will be required.

Download 9 is a NoDVD for v. 1.0.3.

The NoDVD works for me, but if it does not work for you then you can always burn the game disc to double layer DVD and mount it, after which the game will play. If you do not want to burn a double layer DVD you can achieve the same outcome by burning a trimmed disc image to single layer DVD. To trim the disc image, make a read-write copy and delete all the game files from it retaining the (very large) invisible SafeDisc file that the game looks for to play. Mount the edited disc image and drag the mounted volume to the Toast data window and burn.

Version 1.0.3 does not open in OS10.12.6, the error window states: "Data Folder is missing! This folder is needed for the proper functioning of the game and needs to be along with the executable." Of course, the downloaded game has a folder named "MidwayData" in the main folder, and even copying the folder into the hidden Show Contents>MacOS folder so it is exactly in the folder with the executable game file does not resolve the problem. Edit: The above was written before downloading the NoDVD folder. With the NoDVD now in the game folder, the game starts up by loading the preferences pane, but will not proceed, with the error window: "Please insert the "Battlestations Midway" CD-ROM. This CD-ROM must be present to play." I will try to burn a real DVD of the game, but I do not have a blank DL DVD, nor do I have Toast. Edit 2: Success! The NoDVD [k] will start and run the game without burning a DVD. I first had to start the NoDVD [k} by right clicking it, Show Contents, and navigate to the Executable, wherein it started from the Terminal. Then after quitting the game, I copied the NoDVD [k] file to the desktop, trashed the original in the game folder, and dragged the copy back into the game folder. Now I can start the game from the NoDVD [k] file directly. Thank you to all who uploaded this game.

Ideally all the way up to Mojave's 10.14.6.
Not sure if it actually works there or not...

Any info on the highest Mac OS X version this can be played in?

With this switch, some game developers left, some game developers came to it.

Yeah, I just personally checked. The binary is indeed Intel-only. Pity!

At the time this game has been released I think to remember it was Intel only back then.

G5s could go up to 2.7 GHz, though. I own a Quad 2.5GHz, myself, for all my OS X PPC needs.

With that said, however, it being released in 2008 does make it likely to be Intel-only. I'm currently downloading this just to check that.

I got curious now. Smile

The GHz amount required tells me that this game is Intel only,
because the last G4 I knew was on 1.67 GHz of speed.
