This is a Japan-only upgraded version of Typing Of The Dead which was also released on Windows. The upgrades include new minigames and a new feature where you can compete against a clone of yourself. The Mac version also has the characters carrying compact Macs on their backs. One of the very few titles that Sega released specifically for Macs in Japan. Released August 30, 2007.

Unfortunately the Mac version is a very sloppy port job with graphical errors and horrendous framerates on my 1.6Ghz G4. You may want a G5 or Intel Mac for this one.

Mount the DVD and then copy the タイピングラリアット application to your hard drive, then use the application on the included update patch to update. No DVD burning or mounting is required to play.

This has some problems like the Puyo Puyo Fever entry. The patching program seems to have had the filenames for all of its binaries corrupted in the process of packaging, it won't work on Intel or PowerPC Macs because of that.

I'm going to replace the updater in the .zip file because that problem is easy to correct. Done. The update seems to fix fullscreen mode so it's nice to have.

The performance problem noted above is definitely an issue on PowerPC. A 1.5 GHz G4 stutters at seconds per frame once multiple zombies are on screen.

I don't see any problems on Intel Macs though, given a decent GPU. It could be merely a bad port on the PowerPC side.
