Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

The game is a first person adventure with a point and click interface, similar to Myst. Set on the mysterious, murky Oregon coast, Lighthouse is the story of a young writer seeking to unravel the mysterious disappearance of her physicist neighbour, Dr. Kirk, and the strange kidnapping of his infant daughter Amanda. Her discoveries take her beyond the realm of the present and into a mystical parallel world, full of strange mechanical gadgets and beings, and terrorised by the Dark Being. As the player explores 6 different locations in the parallel world, the means of capturing the Dark Being, and thus saving Dr. Krick and Amanda, becomes clear. (Adapted from text in the review article and Wikipedia).

I installed Toast Titanium 6 on my System and managed to mount the CD #2 image file.
Obviously, the Finder cannot mount image files of Mac/PC multi-session CDs.

It mounts OK on Mac OS 9. The error you see with OS X 10.4 occasionally occurs for me with CDs that are imaged with Toast 5 (as this is), and occurs for me as well on this occasion with OS X 10.6.8. But you can still burn a CD OK. I could image another copy of the CD2 with a later version of Toast, but I don't see that it is necessary.

My System (Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger PPC) cannot recognize CD #2 (error: not recognized) though CD #1 works.
I decompressed both with Stuff-It Expander 14.0.0.
