Darwin CD-ROM [CD-ROM] (2nd edition, based on DynaText, a different engine)

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k x86 (Windows)

This is a hybrid CD-ROM for DOS PC & Mac.

Basilisk likes to crash when you quit DiscPassage up to version 1.4.5, but works fine otherwise.
To get the CD-ROM recognized by DiscPassage, you may need to write-protect it, either in your host operating system or within the emulated Mac OS system.

I thought this said Darwinia, and got really excited!

Darwinia was released on CD too.

I would expect some graphics on this CD-ROM, but can't find any.

Okay, the graphics are hidden in the 'Related Items' menu (older versions: 'Document' menu) of the DiscPassage application
(DOS version: Press F9 to see a 'Figures' list, if available. Look the bottom line of the screen for available Fn keys)

Works fine with Mac OS 6 up to 9.2, including Classic Environment, but
Mini vMac may require a separate CD driver software installed, if you plan to mount .cdr images like this one within Mac OS 6 or 7.

Mac OS 7.5, installed within Mini vMac, mounts CD-ROMs fine w/o the need of separate CD driver software.
