Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, ScummVM

Indiana Jones is back! The great archaeologist and adventurer has to solve a grand mystery once again, aided by his trusty whip, his sharp wit, and his courage. A man who calls himself Mr. Smith is interested in a certain ancient statue. When the unsuspecting Indy hands it over to the client, he finds out that Mr. Smith is in fact a colonel in the Nazi army! Why was he so interested in that statue? A girl who had once worked together with Indy, the pretty red-haired (and a bit troublesome) Sophia, tells him the whole thing must have a connection with the legendary lost continent Atlantis. Gathering clues from all over the world, Indy and Sophia embark on their greatest journey!

Fate of Atlantis is not a movie spin-off, but an independent adventure with a brand new story. The gameplay utilizes LucasArts' famous SCUMM system, with action verbs the player chooses from a menu; the objects that can be interacted with are highlighted. The game contains many puzzles of various kinds (mostly inventory-based) and dialogues with multiple choices. There are also a couple of hand-to-hand fights against the Nazis. The middle part of the game can be played in three "modes": co-operation (Indy and Sophia), adventure (Indy alone), and action (Indy alone, with less puzzles and more action). In each mode there are different locations to visit, different puzzles to solve, and different characters to meet. (MobyGames)

We're still looking for the 1987 text adventure Indiana Jones in: Revenge of the Ancients. If you have the Macintosh version of that game, please upload it!

 

Fate of Atlantis is also available for Amiga and DOS.

What's the difference between the two files available above?

"Fate_of_Atlantis_CD.toast_.sit" contains a version that has been reprogrammed and optimised by Lucasarts for PPC machines. The other file is just the original 68k release.

From the Read Me...

The first program, Fate of Atlantis, is the original full-voice Macintosh version of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, released sometime in 1993. It was designed to run on machines as low as a 4MB Macintosh LC II and appeared quite some time before the PowerPC became the new Macintosh standard. Unfortunately for Power Macintosh adopters, the original version runs fully in emulation and hardly has time at all to actually take advantage of the PowerPC inside your system.

Something had to be done.

Thus, Fate of Atlantis PowerPC, a fresh take on the original Fate of Atlantis featuring fully native PowerPC code, improved sound reproduction, screen snapshots in save games, and a new interface consistent with LucasArts’ more recent graphic adventures.

So, to sum up which version you should be running:

• if you have a non-PowerPC Macintosh, you should run the original Fate of Atlantis application; the Fate of Atlantis PowerPC will not run on your system.

• Power Macintosh users, however, should certainly run the Fate of Atlantis PowerPC to see the game in all its glory. If you wish you may also experimentally run the original Fate of Atlantis, but be forewarned that save games, IQ points, and preferences are maintained completely separately for the two versions. Thus, you will not be able to load original Fate of Atlantis save games into Fate of Atlantis PowerPC, nor vice-versa.

I've burned both images to CD's and then run them on a 1Ghz 1.5GB RAM Sawtooth G4 under Tiger and they run*. However you'll need to do the following:

1) Start the game, the music will play in the background but the screen will be corrupted.

2) Pause the game and then go to System Preferences and change the resolution to 640x480.

3) Switch back to the game using control-tab.

4) Select "resume game" or "restart game" from the menu bar.

The game will switch to 640x480, 256 colours and then run without any problems. Don't forget to switch back to your correct video resolution afterwards!

This appears to be a general solution for Lucasarts games but it might work with other software. All credit goes to this poster: https://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/mac-os-x/threads/24237/run...

*Some observations: Fate_of_Atlantis_CD.toast_.sit contains a version that's been reprogrammed and optimised for PPC hardware and should be the preferred choice over the 68k original.

For best performance, Fate of Atlantis really needs to be run under Mac OS 9. From my experience, trying it within the Classic Environment on Mac OS X, there's glitching with a constant hour glass, the graphics are jerky and the sprites flicker during "intensive" scenes such as Monte Carlo.

Also, Mavericks will misreport the game files as being corrupted, when I examined them on SL, Panther and Tiger, there was no such issue.

I'm using OSX 10.5.8 on my ibookG4 (12", 1,2Ghz, 768 MB RAM) it seems OS9's stuffit version or whatever was used to pack the file, does something non conformant with packing/ compression, or "the Unarchiever" (latest ppc version for OSX from 2013) or more modern uncompression/ unpacking tools have an issue with these, at least with the *sit it was as I wrote before (same with the dig and fullthrottle).

I just tried the newly added zip above and could unpack it without issues through Unarchiever on OSX 10.5.8 (ppc) and the resulting image is mountable on OSX,... Maybe this could be mentioned in general?

ScummVM seems to blacklist certain "pirated" game versions as it closes when I try to start the game (detection works correctly tho and the game can be added, just not played via ScummVM, I guess it makes sense as for them to stay out of trouble with right holders and keeping it legal for classic adventure gaming itself, I do love these games as well and own most of them).

I do own various versions of the game, but sadly only non-talky ones, or like with Dott only certain language version,... anyway I would have liked to try this, luckily gog.com just added jones and a few other Lucas (now Disney) titles Smile

The actual CD doesn't seem to be compatible with either Basilisk (7.5.5) or Sheepshaver (8.6) under Mac OS 10.6.8 (Intel). Both emulators give me an incompatible message and kick out my personal retail version of the CD. However the Toast file/image mounted and ran fine when added to the list of SheepShaver volumes via SheepShaverPrefs. I had the same problem with Gahan Wilson's Haunted House. The real CD was not readable using emulators.

I just download the file from the internal server, uncompressed it, mounted the image and started up the game OK on my G3 running Mac OS 9.2.2. So the file is OK. Sorry I can't suggest what may be going wrong in your case.

The link on the upper right works but the file is damaged, the data file of the game is not available and thus the game does not work native or via ScummVM. The mega link I could not test as mega downloads just freeze at 99% on webkit for leopard and tenfourfox/ firefox browsers due to a known bug with the way mega handles downloads. But I suspect it might be the same damaged file and thus does not work. Could someone reupload a working image of the game files?

I dont understand, I went to the link to dowload, everything was fine, but when I went to go and play it, it wouldnt work. Is there any software I need in order to play older games?

Sure, I believe you're on an Intel based Macintosh, but the game has been created for 68k Macintoshes which existed 10 years ago. So you would need an emulator to play the game.

I had never play this before, but as soon as I was playing it yesterday for the first time,
it traps you into the Story, very entertaining.

Hands down one of the best adventure games of all time. The story is good, the puzzles are fun, and the voice acting is superb.

The last time I played the talkie version of this game was in 1997. Thank you very much SwedeBear. You just made my week! Party Beer
