Guides on emulating older games

A remake (originally for the Atari Jaguar) of the classic 1981 Atari arcade game by Dave Theurer.

"Tempest 2000 is a remake/upgrade of the popular Atari vector graphics-based shooter.

Blast your way through over 100+ levels, shooting the creatures that come out from the other side of the web to drag you in. Collect power-ups (jump, AI robots and more) to trippy graphics and colorful explosions as a thumping techno-house soundtrack blasts in the background.

Collect enough bonuses, and be subjected to two different types of bonus rounds as you navigate through rings, or try to ride a spiral tube.

Also included in the gameplay is an intense two-player mode to team up with or go head to head against another player, or even play a version of the original arcade game. There are four modes of gameplay in all: Traditional Tempest, Tempest Duel, Tempest Plus and Tempest 2000."

DL #3: is a Bin/Cue rebuild of DL #1's data and MP3 audio files (to data + AIFF) so the game can be burned back to CD and have audio play on Macintosh hardware.

Should the original CD ever get uploaded to this page as a Bin/Cue rip, then this 3rd DL can be replaced and removed.

How do you get the music to play during the game?

@Rick D: You can try the bin/cue 3rd DL.

Great game! I have the Jaguar version (amazing) and this Macintosh port hold up VERY well next to it.

Question: How do you get the music to play during the game? The zip file contains the game and the music in seperate files. Am i missing something? How best to combine? Thanks!

Arashi is an instant classic - It is one of the first games I install on any system.

Tempest2000 is a remake (like arashi is) that has better graphics, sound, music, levels etc.

I actually like Space Giraffe better than both, but it can be a bit psychadelic.

I never knew this was ported to the Mac. I was floored when I tried it and now I really want to find the full version. I would gladly buy it if I could find it. This plays great even on my 6100, but it really needs the music (not present in this demo).
Edit: Whoops! Nevermind that comment. Looks like this IS the full version. So from where on earth did I download the demo a few days ago??? I've not gotten games from anywhere but here in recent times. Hmmm.

Is this the latest version? I ask this, because the author is known for frequent (and useful) updates.
