If anyone here uses Facebook, come and join the ShadowWraith & Souls in the System fan group I set up. I intend to use it as a hub to discuss both of these games specifically, since I can't find anywhere else to do so. I'm curating lots of links to useful content related to running these games there. Suggestions welcome on the page.

I have an original boxed copy of Shadow-Wraith, which was one of my favourite games on my grandmother's old Performa. The game starts and runs just fine on my Mac OS 9.2.2 G3 Powerbook, except for the glitchy music. The sound effects are all normal, but the music constantly stutters and crowds over itself. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?

I'm not sure, but I think this game crashes on Mac OS 9 when starting a new game. Can anybody confirm this?

It crashes under Mac OS 9.2 when trying to start a new game or load a saved game. Weirdly it worked perfectly under Mac OS X 10.2's Classic a couple of days ago (that's how I got a saved game), but I haven't yet tried to reload that or play it again under OS X yet. It could be clashing with an extension that loads when booting OS 9, but not under OS X's Classic.

ShadowWraith will lockup and crash when you pause the game in mac os 9.1 or mac os 9.2.2.
The game works on power computing towner 225 G3 400 running mac os 8.6 but lockup in mac os 9.1 when you pause the game. The game works on power mac G4 1.25 Ghz mirror door 2003 running in classic environment of mac os x 10.4.11. The game will lockup in mac os 9.2.2 when pause the game.
Do you know this game will lockup and crash in mac os 9 or mac os 9.0.4 when you pause the game ?

For people wanting to play this game, it is absolutely great! Unless you play it in Classic Support. It works, but is very skippy, and almost unusable, unfortunately. It works fairly well under SheepShaver, though. The same goes for Souls in the System, which may be even worse, as either the music files are not included, or they just don't play for some stupid reason.

Well, it worked on my Power Mac booting either 7.5 or 8.6.

Added information: Works on PowerPC, and mentioned the sequel.

This is more like selecting SheepShaver in 'Emulation' rather than ticking 'PPC' in architecture,
which should tell what the game is based on. (if 68k, it often runs fine on PPC as well) .

Thanks for the confirmation, Bolkonskij. I'll remove Mac OS 9 from the list of compatible systems. The game, however, should run fine in Basilisk II with Mac OS 7 installed.

Edit: Changed 'xxx 7' to 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User
