Yep. It seems to work fine on Sheepshaver and VirtualBox (although on the latter, some files don't respond correctly).
Thanks a bundle.

OK I have a copy that looks to be in good shape. Will add it to this page today.

[Edit] Done.

Glad you got it to mount in Windows at least, MTT. I actually burned a CD from the .cdr first and tried to mount that in Windows 7 without success. I then tried with the image (renaming cdr to iso like you did) also without success. I don't know why. There is a Win-only version on archive.org, purporting to be a hybrid Mac/PC as it is supposed to be.

Sounds alright.
I'll have both the .cdr and .dmg images up until you figure something out.

I've DL'd to test (using a Windows box at the mo'). I renamed ".cdr" to ".iso" and used the Win CD/DVD utility "PortableWinCDEmu.exe" to mount the .iso. It mounts OK here and I can see the Windows side of the image. All files appear to be OK everything looks like it should install OK and its not a bin cue type (plain vanilla .iso by the looks of it). Will try on Mac next... back in a tick...

Tested on beige G3 (Mac OS 9.1) the image will not mount on the Mac side. Virtual CD/DVD Utility and Toast cannot mount it, the mac side seems to be fubar.

Given the PC side appears to be OK and the original uploaded .dmg was OK, I could combine the two and re-upload if necessary - if making a hybrid image from the original seems not to be an option.

Strange.
The .dmg image works fine on Sheepshaver (Mac OS 9.0.4).
Both the .cdr image and the physical CD-ROM itself don't work with Sheepshaver nor Windows 2000 (VirtualBox).
I don't have Toast Titanium. Any free way to make a .toast image?

Thanks, TJgamer. I have tried your .cdr image. Toast reports it to be a hybrid Mac/iso image...so far so good. Unfortunately, the disc image is not recognised by either of my old Macs (a 68k Mac and a PPC) running System 7.5.5 and Mac OS 9.2.2, respectively. So something has gone wrong in getting the disc image here. Possibilities I can think of include...something going wrong in the image making process, or an incomplete upload, or maybe there is something strange about the CD itself that Disk Utility can't handle properly. Can you possibly make a Toast image instead? Alternatively, if you have access to a PC and can make a bin/cue image of the CD (perhaps using ImgBurn or UltraIso) that I can access, then I can make an exact physical copy of your CD to work with.

If none of this is possible then I will just reinstate your original upload after converting to a .toast image. We can then hope someone else can provide a complete hybrid disc image eventually.

EDIT: Well, the disc image will not mount in Windows either. So there is something seriously wrong with it. Maybe incomplete upload?

Okay, I'll try.

EDIT: Done. Does it work?

And please don't forget to immediately lock the disc image to stop the Finder writing to it, if you plan to mount it.

Yeah, .toast, then .zip (or .sit) the file. Smile

Thank you very much for this, TJgamer. I have been looking for this for some time, but the only copies I had found "out there" were missing the Mac partition and were only usable on a PC. Alas, your disc image suffers from the opposite problem...it is missing the Win partition and is only usable on a Mac. Now that is certainly better than our previous situation, but it would be good for archival purposes to have both Mac and Win parts of the CD here. So could you please re-image your CD (perhaps using Toast) and re-upload here, so that we have a complete disc image?

As a side note, a dmg file will not be recognised by any system of the day (1994) so it is best not to use a dmg in any case unless the game is intended only for Mac OS X which is not the case here.

EDIT: Instead of Toast you could use Disk Ulility but select the whole device (not just the Mac part contained within it) and then choose DVD/CD master from File/New etc.
