Guides on emulating older games

Myst V: End of Ages is the fifth and final instalment in the Myst series. As in previous games in the series, End of Ages‍' gameplay consists of navigating worlds known as "Ages" via the use of special books and items which act as portals. On each Age, the player solves puzzles and discovers story clues hidden in the Ages or written down in diaries and journals. The player's actions in the game decide the fate of the ancient D'ni civilization. (Wikipedia)

This is a PPC game but is playable on an Intel Mac using Rosetta under Mac OS X up to 10.6.8. However the regular install process from the DVD does not work on Intel Macs.

DL #1 contains the (hybrid Mac/PC) DVD image

DL #2 is the official Ubisoft installer for Intel Macs running Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5. It does not work properly with Mac OS X 10.6. The official Intel Mac installer is also restricted to one version of the DVD. It has not been determined yet if the version of the DVD imaged here is the one favoured, because the uploader is missing a suitable Mac/OS combination.

DL #3 is a patched version of the official Ubisoft installer for Intel Macs that works with the Myst V DVD (or disc image) and any compatible version of OS X up to version 10.6.8. This has been tested and it works perfectly on an Intel Mac running Snow Leopard.

DL #4 is a no-DVD application that patches the installed copy of Myst V so that it does not require the original DVD which contains SecuROM copy protection. Works as expected when tried the last time. It leaves a log file in the root directory of your Mac.

DL #5 is required by these instructions, alternative to using the patched installer.
