Guides on emulating older games

It's a concept straight out of a sci-fi 'zine: Deep in the heart of Mars, a hapless miner named Parker slaves away for a dictatorial corporation called Ultor. Suddenly, the miners can't take the abuse any longer, and Parker gets swept up in an armed revolt against his inhumane employer and its legions of corrupt, heavily armed guards. You play as Parker throughout Red Faction, a good-looking first-person shooter that has a wide variety of weapons and some other notable features, as well as a mostly enjoyable single-player game and a complete multiplayer mode (GameSpot).

The disc image is a Hybrid but the PC partition is the same as the Mac one and contains no PC executable.


No-CD Patch for OS X

The second download in the sidebar is a No-CD patch courtesy of artphotodude. It was tested in OS X 10.4, but should work in other PPC versions of OS X. It does not work with the OS 9 version of the game.

The patch opens a dummy disc image containing a fake installer file that the game looks for to boot. The image is then ejected 10 seconds later after the game starts.

Requires that the "Movies" folder on the disc/s be copied from "Data" on the disc to "Data" in the application folder.

Works a bit more reliably if the initial setup dialog is disabled once configured.

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

PPC (G3 or higher)

Mac OS 8.6 ~ Mac OS X 10.5.8 (untested in Rosetta/Snow Leopard)

Installer requires Classic on Mac OS X. But the resulting installation doesn't.

I tested this red Faction on power mac G4 1.25 Ghz mirror door 2003 in mac os 9.2.2 and mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8. It works in all systems I have. The installer only works in mac os 8.6 to mac os 9.22 and classic environment but the installer put in both version of game. In the install game folder is classic version and os x version. If your system is os x only. You can't install this in os x. To play this game you need the classic system to install the game.

@ ExcessiveLipgloss: The installer is a 68k application but it installs a PPC and an OS X version of the game.

Okay, gladly I'm done with the Download.
(Now comes the big 'but') BUT it only seems to be for the classic environment. I'm on a Powerbook G4, OSX 10.5.8 and cannot install it. Unfortunately, so I'd take out the "OSX" in the description.

Awesome game, plus would it be possible to upload a no cd patch?

EDIT: red faction is just a rip off of half life

I have a PPC-based Mac only under Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger, too.
You can use jDownloader (there is a special version that can be run under Java 1.5) or TenFourFox 17 or later.
