MD5: 3ede0320eaef5189b9fa608616fc6197
For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

The hard-to-find and apparently award-winning upgrade to the original Preschool game. Which was then upgraded in horrific and unforgivable ways. I have yet to get this to work on a Mac beyond the start-up screen, but I can only assume there's a way, if 1st Grade 2000 works just fine.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC

The links at the top right (internal and external link) contains a hybrid PC/Mac CD image each.

Yeah, hah-- I hoped it was just me, but... guess not. If only this showed up on eBay more often. Probably if people knew what to call it, it'd help. It runs perfectly on PC on VirtualBox, at any rate!

@HomeStarRunnerTron

Have you had any success in running the application? It just immediately quits after opening for me. I have concluded that it might be best to wait until we have a pristine copy before I make a bin/cue. But thanks again for your efforts in extracting the files off your damaged copy.

EDIT: I see you have already answered my question in the page description Smile

OK. I understand. Thanks for the effort. I will proceed with what we have.

Iiii honestly think this is the best I can do. I spent two weeks just trying to get all the files off the disc successfully-- it's a REALLY scratched-up disc, and Toast refused to do anything with it all at once, so my solution was to drag files off one-by-one at times, resulting in the modified folders. Until another copy of this emerges, I think this is the best I can do. Sometimes, it refuses to even show up on my computer.

I have just noticed that the PC side has been altered too with two folders dated 2015. Can you please recreate the hybrid image? I will await for that before I proceed with the planned bin-cue.

EDIT: And lock the image immediately it is created, please

Oh, shoot. Okay, I'll remember that from now on, I had no idea that I could mess with something after it was already burned!

Thanks for this HomeStarRunnerTron. However can you please lock the disc image first if you intend to look at it in OS X. The iso has OS X artifacts on the image and the desktop view was changed to "list" when it should be "icon view". Unfortunately I only discovered this after I had recreated a mixed mode CD. I will fix the image and remake the disc. But please lock the image in future.

EDIT: BTW the iso you uploaded IS locked, but it was locked after OS X had interfered with the image

Fantastic, I was SO worried-- you would not believe how scratched up the CD was when it came to me, it's a miracle I got anything off of it...

Excellent, the audio CD image is good! I will make a bin/cue shortly.

Here's hoping this works for ya'! : ) I'm about to upload another game with an audio CD in it, hah, so I'm uploading it like this, too.

What's the progress on the sdf2 issue?

I use StuffIt 5.5

EDIT: Any compression that preserves resource forks will be fine. So compression that runs in Mac OS 9 or lower, or OS X up to 10.4 should be OK

I'll give it a shot-- what version do you use for making StuffIt archives?

The Sd2f file seems to be corrupted in transmission. Can you please make a new image of the audio partition, then make a StuffIt archive of it, before uploading.

All righty, I'll see what I can do about that! Also, for me, JumpStart Kindergarten's link is working just fine, but I'll try again in the morning.

EDIT: DONE, WOOO--

If this comes with audio tracks can you please upload a Toast disc of the audio rather than mp3? I can then make a bin/cue of a combined CD
