Guides on emulating older games

In Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 hopeless leaders of a doomed Soviet Union travel back in time so that they can change history. A new alternate timeline appears where the Soviets now find themselves as the leading superpower but also discover something else has gone terribly wrong. World War III is raging, the Japanese Empire of the Rising Sun has risen in the east challenging the Soviet bid for world domination. A three-way war now emerges between the Soviet Union, the Allies, and a new Empire of the Rising Sun faction.

The game follows the tradition of the Command & Conquer series where the player must build up bases and produce a massive attack force to destroy all enemies. The player may choose any one of the three factions, each with a different array of infantry, armored vehicles, aircraft, ships to fight with, as well as buildings with new technologies, upgrades, and the all-powerful superweapons. Players do all their building from a sidebar, this allows them to create production queues and deploy structures fast and easily. (Mobygames)

Downloads 1 - 6 are the parts of a zipped archive of the game DVD (version 1.06). To reassemble the complete disc image, place all the parts in one folder, then drag the 0.001 file to The Unarchiver. This will join all the parts and unzip the archive. Other methods exist. but this one is as good as any. Burning the disc image will not produce an exact copy of the DVD because an original DVD has SecuROM copy protection.

Download 7 contains a noDVD/noSN patch for version 1.06. Run the patch to unlock the game for playing. When you load the game it will ask more than once if you want to update it. DO NOT update the game. If you do, then you will be unable to play it.

Download 8 contains all the updates required to convert v. 1.06 to v. 1.12 (latest version). These will be required if we ever find a crack for v. 1.12 and when updates for this game are no longer available on the EA server.

There is a crack for the Windows version 1.12 so we might hope it will work here because EA have just put the Windows game inside a Cider wrapper to make the Mac version of the game. Alas, I cannot get the Windows crack to work for us.

The game application shows up as a universal binary but the game will not run on a PPC Mac. This is an Intel-only game as it says on the box.

I followed steps 1-7 and it loaded once and asked for a key registration and then afterwards it fails to launch

After testing in Snow Leopard, I can confirm that the game behaves much more seamlessly there (as one would probably expect, given the original system requirements).

Ah! I happened to try it again today, and it activated! However, it really doesn't seem to get along with High Sierra. Hopefully, I can transfer the preferences to Snow Leopard and try again.

EDIT: After re-reading the instructions sent to me by the seller, it needs to be played in windowmode in High Sierra, else nothing can be clicked with the cursor. The game defaults to full-screen, but window mode can be accessed by pressing Cmd-Enter. I was able to fiddle around by Cmd-Tabbing and that seemed to get the cursor to work in full-screen, but windowed mode works right away. (The screen went black for me at first, but pressing Enter once more brought things back.)

Works well with the 1.06 patch. No serial or activation needed. Thank you!

I actually tracked down a (used...) physical copy, with a valid serial number and everything, but have had the darnedest time trying to activate it...

A copy of the game is for sale on ebay with an asking price of about USD250. If that truly reflects the market price then physical copies of the Mac version must be quite rare.
