they advertised on the box that the disc contained 5 games on the one disc (not that i would make them separate, i'd keep them all on there)...

As I quoted on "The copy that I have came on one CD containing four out of the five programs which used to span five discs in total. It would be redundant to put the separate programs on multiple discs, rather than fitting them on only one of them! Perhaps Brighter Child wanted to reissue Caillou Ready for School, and just put most of the programs on a combined CD just to save the manufacturing costs."

the packaging said there was 5 games on the disc, but it turns out, there only seems to be...4?

@24bit Carbonlib is only needed on OS9 so it can run Carbon apps.

The game works fine with OSX 10.6.
The needed CarbonLib is provided with Rosetta methinks.
As expected, proccedings and screens are equal to those within Windows XP.
Gameplay is in English, Spanish and French.

SheepShaver likes to crash after running the Director MX start thingie, maybe the needed CarbonLib would cure that.

So far, this one made it in the 10 year old rule since Brighter Minds filed for bankruptcy in 2009. BTW, I don't know if this will run on Mac OS 8.6 - 9.1, nor on SheepShaver and Rosetta (on Intel Macs), so if anyone who has real hardware and/or a copy of SheepShaver to test this game on, go right ahead!

I think this should be between Mac OS 8.6 - 10.6.8 or Mac OS 9.0 - 10.6.8 because the official system requirements call for Mac OS 9.2.2 - 10.3.9! Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard were not introduced on the official system requirements because of the company's quality assurance and testing, but Tiger was released in 2005 and Leopard was released in 2007, and the company (Brighter Minds) left it out in their product packaging unedited because of that!

Anyways, this one is uploaded for preservation purposes because of Brighter Minds' bankruptcy in 2009.
