Guides on emulating older games

"Airburst Extreme is the followup to our award winning game Airburst and has been re-written from the ground up to include an interactive Story Game, introducing the 10 different characters, each with their own Extreme powers, 32 different game types, most of which are also playable over a network. Watch out too for the new power ups, spectacular OpenGL rendered graphics and great soundtrack from Abdoujaparov, Freekstar and Jaffa Mountain!

Unravel the mystery as you compete for fame in Airburst matches throughout the Solar System!
It's edge-of-your-seat gameplay with 32 Game Modes including Deathmatch, Racing, Sumo and Football.
Unlock the hidden characters, each with their own Extreme Power.
Grab the cool new Power-ups to defeat your opponents in solo, head-to-head or online action!
Amazing OpenGL effects, a hot soundtrack and thrilling gameplay makes Airburst Extreme a worthy successor to the game that Inside Mac Games called, "extraordinarily addictive and fun".

We've also released a downloadable demo of Airburst Extreme that lets you try out a couple of the game types and see just how spectacular Airburst Extreme is!

Note for registered Airburst players:
If you registered the original Airburst (now referred to as Airburst Classic) your registration code unlocks an extra game mode in Airburst Extreme! If your Airburst Classic was registered via Freeverse, Airburst Extreme recognises the code automatically and adds the new game mode on startup, if you registered using our older system, copy the keyfile you were given from your Airburst Classic folder into your Airburst Extreme folder for the game to give you your extra game mode." —description from the official website

Anybody able to run this in a VM? I've tried it on almost every version of OS X in both QEMU and VirtualBox and it always crashes on launch. Console logs something about "invalid pixel format", so I thought it was a 256 color thing, but my latest VM supports that, so I'm stumped. Thanks!

Anyone having a key for the Full v1.01? When I install and start it, it's still in trial mode. I get only one remaining try before trial expires... thanks!

I added screenshot and updater for CD version to 1.01 from entry at Freeverse Software. Unfortunately the link to the updater for the download version to v1.01 is not working any longer. ;(
