You can't install from bin/cue (which is a disk image) you have to burn it to a blank CD. The game won't run if it can't find the CD audio tracks.

You can burn a bin/cue in OS X with SimplyBurns.

Thanks for this MCP.

I remember the Pippin version having a similar reliance on the audio tracks.

This one is copy protected and asks for the original disk, and my usual simple tricks don't work on it, so I've preserved it in BIN/CUE format (it's got audio tracks) for others to mess around with and see if they can get it to work. Also I've uploaded the demo that is available elsewhere on the web, and scanned the game's box and manual, which are included in the full archive.
