Emulation
This game works with: Basilisk II,

The year is 2577 and everyone on the Titan colony has suddenly disappeared. The station lies empty and hulking with the exception of a few automated robots which patrol the halls. The sentient computer C.H.A.O.S. is resisting any attempt at interface from the outside. You must take an advanced EVA pod, the Time Pod and shifting through dimensional rifts arrive at the Titan station to determine what went wrong. Use the probe's interfaces to gain access to computers, databanks and whatever else it will take to crack the access codes on the labs and C.H.A.O.S. itself.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

Minimum requirements: Mac II, 256 colours and System 6.0.7.

Thanks, mrdav. It looks fine now in Acrobat version 4 and above. However and this surprised me; The PDF reports itself as being an version 1.2 type PDF [Acrobat 3.0], but it fails to display its contents in Acrobat 3.0 with "bad Color Space" errors and opens to a blank paged document only.

I only have Acrobat 3 on 68k Mac, to test tho' so it might be OK in Acro 3 on PPC. No such errors in Acrobat 4 or newer.

@MikeTomTom: I have replaced the manual. See how that goes.

Yes, I always seem to forget about ensuring backward compatibility of the pdfs. I will do something about the manual soon.

@mrdav: The PDF manual is not compatible on classic Mac systems, as it is a 1.6 version of PDF created in Acrobat 9.5x. It cannot be read in Acrobat 5 and earlier, Acrobat version 3 being the last Acrobat Reader to run on 68k Mac and Acro 4 - 5 the last to run on PPC Classic systems (version 6 - 7 also?).

I was able to view it in Mac OS X Lion and its version of Preview.app. From there I was able to export it to a version 1.3 PDF (Acrobat 4.x compatible) which can be viewed on a PPC mac system OK, but still not compatible for 68k Mac.

Really excellent scans of the manual btw, so it would be good to get this converted into a more backwards compatible format.
