This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

'You got into New York only to find out that your flight was... More delayed. So, you decided to get a cab and look around. Unfortunately, you chose the wrong cab. Raoul, your cab driver, isn't just your normal sort of cabbie. One look at those blazing red eyes in the rear-view mirror should tell you that. Raoul is going to give you his special tour of New York. There's only one hitch. To survive the trip, you either have to pay Raoul with money... or part of your soul. You only have three lives, and once those are gone, the saying, "To hell with you." is going to have a whole new meaning for you. Not only will you have to survive the modern day menaces on the streets, but in the past as well. Can you make the right choices and survive with your soul intact? Or will you just be another victim of the soulless city?'
From Adventure Legends

The original media is HFS. I have uploaded an image from my copy of the CD.

It is the same as it has been for the last years.

Is the recent uploaded (4shared link), still the same HFS+ archive that had been uploaded previously? Odd that its HFS+ when the Hell Cab executable is 68k native (not PPC as it currently states in the Compatibility area above) although it can run on a PPC. This game came out before Mac OS 8.1, so I'm puzzled as to why it is HFS+ (if its still the same DL, that is).

I mean it turned out a useless piece of plastic not to the Mac's liking.

I downloaded this one to compare to my own, when I open the Toast file (no issues expanding on Stuffit v7.0.3 on OSX 10.3.9) it reports it as HFS+ / Mas OS Extended.

There is a new problem.
When using StuffIt Expander for this .sit the command 'Expand all' works, but 'Extract' doesn't.
I don't even know what the difference in these two is, but the fact that 'Extract' results in an error must be a bad indication.
I used 'Expand all' but the freshly burned CD was garbage.

I wonder if the 'TM' trademark-sign in the file name is causing any trouble, as this is quite out of the ordinary...

It really is. Downloaded and the archive refused any attempt to unstuff. Tried X.5.8, 9.0.4, 8.6 and 7.6; no luck. Can upload a copy of my copy but a copy from the real thing would be nice. Wink

It really seems to be corrupted.

Did you try with an older version of StuffIt Expander?

Tried unstuffing it in both OS X and OS 9. Didn't work. Mac OS 9 questioned the content of the .sit and if it was really what it claimed to be, while OS X flatly decided that the .SIT was corrupted. Any help?
