Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective is an adventure game that made use of full-motion-video (FMV). Set in the Victorian Age, you slip into the suits of Sherlock Holmes and his longtime partner Dr. Watson, trying to solve three separate crimes by visiting various locations, listening to the dialogue, reading the newspapers, and, when the player gets enough evidence, answering the judge's questions.

The game came as a collection of three discs.

Added replacement links to the three disks, uploaded the manuals, and two new pics off the jewel case.

I figured it must be 68k if it came out in 1991. I haven't tried native checker but I would be surprised if there was another release.

Me, too.

Anyway, since I don't have the box in my hands I can't tell system requirements. The read-me only stresses that this is SSW 7 savvy and that's it. Maybe someone else has the box and could add the requirements?

Yes, classic mode runs 68k software as well.

The 68k emulation was there all the way up to Mac OS 9.2.2, yes. I for instance was able to play Jewelbox in the Classic environment on my iMac G5.

Pure 68k applications will in most cases run perfectly on a PowerPC Macintosh thanks to the built-in 68k emulation but that doesn't make them 68k / PPC.

Thanks, that's what I want to say. Smile

If I remember correctly, I was able to run 68k games in Classic Environment, but I want not to say for sure.

So the Classic carried the possibility to emu 68k? I thought this was dead as Apple left OS9?

Well aren't there three categories? Pure 68k compilations, universal 68k / PPC versions and pure PPC applications?

if they run under Classic in Tiger, aren´t they PPC too?

Depends on what NativeChecker says.
I don't think, 1991 already PowerPC existed.

All worked ok? Just a thought; if they run under Classic in Tiger, aren´t they PPC too?
Nice pics! Smile
