Guides on emulating older games

Can't get enough of crossword puzzles? Try X-Words Deluxe, a fun, educational crosswords game that'll test anyone's word knowledge. Best of all, you can play X-Words your way, using a wide variety of boards, vocabulary lists and even languages. A great game for the whole family. (From the Read Me)

The 1st download is version 3.1 for Mac OS X, dated 2005
The 2nd download is version 2.2 carbonised for Mac OS 8.6-9.x/Mac OS X, dated 2003
The 3rd download is version 2.1 carbonised for Mac OS 9.x/Mac OS X, dated 2001

The publisher, Freeverse, is no longer operating and the developer has retired from the shareware business.

To register the v. 3.1 or v. 2.2 of the game do the following:

1) Set the date on your Mac to 1 Oct 2004
2) Enter Name: Santa Claus and Code: S871-5000-1800-0804-U267
3) Register
4) You can now restore the date on your Mac

The above procedure works in Mac OS X. To register v. 2.2 in Mac OS change the date year to 2003 (2004 may also work but I cannot test it as I first registered with the 2003 date)

Earlier versions 1.x can be readily found on Info-Mac and elsewhere.
