If anyone needs the Wineskin version of the English version of this game for Mac OS X 10.6->10.10.4 Intel, please let me know... I have tested it, and apart from an invisible cursor issue, which is easily resolved by switching to window and back to fullscreen with keyboard Alt-Enter, it runs perfectly.

Now I have Late-2013 iMac, with Intel Iris Pro graphics, Wineskin stopped working for this game (and most other 2D games). Thanks to a friendly soul on The Porting Team forums, there is a Staging driver for Wineskin now, which gets this game (and probably others) working again!

I have given up hope of finding the hybrid disc of this game. Will continue playing this under Wineskin.

Please note that I have the the PC version of this game, and it runs sweetly under a WineSkin wrapper on Mac OS X 10.6/10.7/10.8/10.9/10.10. This could also be ported using older CX skins to support 10.4/10.5 (Intel only sorry).

I will post my wrapper/app here if there is enough interest shown. It fails to launch about 1 in 50 attempts, but apart from that, it is pretty darn solid (fullscreen, correct mouse button behaviour, etc.)

PS. It is IDENTICAL to the Mac version of the game in gameplay/graphics (but does the Mac version do Fullscreen correctly?)

Angle brackets meaning less-than, greater-than angle brackets?

I used those, and nothing happened, may have used forward slash tho... ahah!

many thanks (too much OSX86 command line) Smile

@themacmeister:

PS. Why can't I use HTML tags? Am I doing something wrong?

The tags you are allowed to use in these comment fields are visible below the comment editing area. To get the "quotemarks" you use blockquote & \blockquote, enclosed in angle brackets.

-- Exactly, plus we're hardly looking for the english version

Please note that any PC version of this game should include the Mac files as well... I am making this assumption based on version 2003 of this game, which is a hybrid CD.
