Guides on emulating older games

World War II combat flight simulator. Fly a P-51, Spitfire, F4U Corsair, and Yak on the Allied side, and the Me-109, Fw-190, Zero, and Macchi on the Axis side. Theaters include England/France, Sicily/Malta, New Georgia Islands, Island World, and Fantasy World.

The classic/OS9 version comes in two versions: Rave and OpenGL. The OpenGL version will also work in Classic mode under OS X. It may work in SheepShaver, too, though I haven't tried it. Despite this, the OS X version is, of course, the recommended version to use on OS X

3rd download is the patch to version 1.03.

Replacement aircraft skins and terrain textures are still available here.

It looks like the forum where the donated license was posted is down. Here it is:

Roger McLaughlin

That's the user name and registration number for the OS X version.

None of the two links work for me. Sad You can use Drop Box for a link. Smile

The creator, Donald A. Hill Jr. , passed away last year.

May he rest peacefully.

If you're handy with OSX Terminal, you can join the files with a simple "cat SF*.00* > SF1945.img.sit"

It's unfortunate that the split program used ended up using the same naming convention as the built-in segmenter in Stuffit.

File corrupt. Is there another link?

Try Split & Concat or BetterZip. They handle segmented files well.

Nope, we're talking about Stuffit trying to join the 3 archives.

How did you split them ? With Stuffit ? or something like MacHacha ?

When I run the .001 file through Stuffit Expander I get an error about 90% of the way through file 1.

Are you talking about the dialogue box in OS X upon mounting which says "The disk image you are opening may be damaged and could damage your system. Are you sure you want to open it?" I believe this happens with every disk image created by Disk Copy 6.3.3 in OS 9, which SF1945.img was. When you mount it in OS 9, the checksum verifies and it works fine, and when you click through the dialogue and mount it in OS X, the image works flawlessly as well. I've never encountered any problems with it.

Just make sure you lock the image in the Get Info window. I created it as read-only in OS 9, but for some reason it's read-write when mounted in OS X.
