Can anyone help me? I installed the game but when I try to run it it tells me "Can't load RESOURCE.MAP!" I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still no go. Any ideas?

Now available is a new archive with the original install disks, a pre-installed and patched version, and full documentation.

Apparently the game still has date bugs, causing it to hang at the crossword puzzle, and then again at the ending credits. To un-hang it, set the Mac's date to 1992 (you can do it while the game is running, and it will un-hang).

Another thing, save games in the same folder as the program, otherwise it'll get an error after you save.

Download is broken. And also, I remember it crashing just as you finish the word search puzzle.

Been looking for this classic. Played this in 4th grade. If only they had the other Dr. Brain games.
