Emulation

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.

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.
