Emulation
This game works with: Mini vMac

Let it be known that the Royal Court of Wallachia seeks a champion. His most Royal Highness, King John the Good, enjoins any and all wayfarers to aid the Kingdom in its search for Princess Sabrina, missing now for a fortnight.

Should you travel to the dark forests of Transylvania, be mindful of all that occurs, for you may encounter the Evil that holds Sabrina captive. Return the Princess, and the King, Himself, will honor you as his hero.

The download contains two disk images: the original 400K disk, and an 800K disk with a hacked version that you can copy to a hard disk and play on later systems.

If Venice 14 isn't installed on your system, the game will use Geneva 14 for body text instead (except on 64K ROM Macs, where New York is the default instead of Geneva). The 800K disk includes Venice 14 and Geneva 14 in suitcases for your choice of font.

A note about the downloads available from above:

  1. file in .dsk format ready for use in Mini vMac
  2. file is the original program in a 800K image for Mac OS 7.5 to 9.2
  3. file is for copying files under Mac OS X (.dmg).
    Note: 2nd and 3rd file intended for using directly on a real Mac only.

Followed by The Crimson Crown.

Sorry I was downloading the first link which had dsk files. I did not see they are all difderent. The os9sit worked. Except no way to extract it. But OSX - 10.3 automatically does and then reboot into os 9 and it works great. Except OSX classic mode works but the games does not look the same. A little cut off at the bottom so not playable. But the ibook g3 900 does boot os9 so it work great in os9.

So all is good now. Thanks for all the help.

The archives I uploaded are not in .dsk format... So, they should work with a real Mac ! You have just to decompress & mount them. Not so difficult for anyone. May be this could be helpful for u :

Yes thanks but they only open in mini v mac not a real mac (se or ibook g3 with os9). Maybe a quick video uploaded to youtube or something explaining how to. No details just show downloading it and loading it on a real mac.

Hi there,

I have uploaded two images, one for using under Mac OS 7.5, another for copy under Mac OS X. The first is the original game and the second (folder) is the hacked version...

I got a used ibook g3 900 off ebay for 35 dollars. It works and boots os9. But diskdup+ downloaded from here does not open the dsk either. It downloads as a zip first. And then unzips 2 dks files. Neither open in diskdup+.

anyway to open the disk images in a real mac [...] I have an SE and g5 imac

These are DiskDup+ .dsk images (which can be mounted or written to floppy disk on your SE). Either use DiskDup+ or drag the image onto Disk Copy 6's icon to mount. DiskDup+ needs to be registered to be able to mount disk images - tho' it can write to floppy disk media, registered or unregistered.

If your SE is running a Mac OS prior to Mac OS 7.0 then Disk Copy 6, will not work, but DiskDup+ will be OK.

Caveat: If you have unzipped these images on a newer Mac or PC a good chance the .dsk's will be missing their Creator & File Type codes, these will need to be restored (on the SE) before DiskDup+ can recognize it's own disk images.

In which case; If your SE is running System 6.0.8 or earlier you will need to use ResEdit to change the Creator Type to DDp+ and the File Type to DDim (case is sensitive). If your SE is running Mac OS 7.0 or newer, it gets a bit easier. You can either use a file type changing program such as Creator Changer to quickly set the DiskDup+ file types, or simply drag the .dsk icons over onto a Disk Copy 6 icon (or opened window) to mount these images onto the desktop.

Loved this game as a kid. But how do you use this? Its good for emulation in miniv mac. Works great. But is there anyway to open the disk images in a real mac. I have an SE and g5 imac 2.1ghz. Neither will open the dsk files with any program.

Five seconds to type it into Google and I had an answer: http://www.roemobiledevelopment.com/Site/Transylvania.html

Do you have to have a hacked iPhone to get it to work? Where did you get the new version?

Thanks,
Sean...

Gael_FR, can you post a PDF of that Penguin catalog, or maybe just zip up all your jpegs and upload them somewhere so I can make a PDF for you? It's very handy to have those old software catalogs available.
