Ok, something weird I've noticed. If I were to just take the Abalone 1.6.2 application file and stuffit with StuffIt 7, it would not properly expand with StuffIt Expander 5.5. If I put it in a folder and stuffed the folder, no problems. It's moot now, as the archive now contains a folder with an Abalone 1.4.2 and Abalone 1.6.2 folder inside.

The version I put up, according to the info, is 1.6.2, made in 2000.

Katae comments in revisions:

It seems Abalone doesn't want to play in Basilisk II for whatever reason.

I have a version, 1.4.2, that is a fat app (68K + PPC) and seems to work ok in Basilisk. What version is the one you've put up? (I still can't get the archive to unstuff.)

This entry seems odd. I definitely see an othello-ish Mac game running around call Abalone, also by Peter Tax, but nothing called Abolone. Also, I can't get the archive to unstuff, so I can't see what's in it.

I can't get this archive to unstuff properly.
