Guides on emulating older games

As Indiana Jones, you'll travel to 1935 China to prevent a powerful artifact from falling into evil hands. This globe-spanning adventure pits you against evil Nazis and the Asian underworld. It'll take more than just a trusty whip and pistol to avoid the perils of the Emperor's Tomb.

You can avoid burning the game to two CDs (downloads #1 &#2), tested in Tiger with Toast v5.2 - Make sure you lock the pair of .toast files before you use them. When the images are mounted using Toast in Tiger, their desktop icons are CD shaped and this will allow installing. When the images are mounted with Apple software their desktop icons are driveunit shaped and will fail the installer's authenticity checking.

Do not run the installer from the disc image, because it is incompatible with Tiger which you most likely want the highest version for Tiger. Begin installation by running the Tiger Updated Installer (download #3).

The serial number is ET6D6C4HCDF43D3H.
The serial number is also included on Back of CD Screenshot.

Don't forget the awesome documentation in the "Manual" link, above.

The following section added by 'SkyCapt':
Urgent trojan malware warning!
Possessing this game on one's system or in one's backup archives behaves similar to trojan malware, on 32-bit hardware at least. Its .app file size is 2.01 GB (from both versions of installers) and this triggers random crashing because of a bug in 32-bit Mac OS X. These 32-bit Macs all had no more than 2.00 GB RAM due to hardware limitation and the 2.01 GB .app size crosses a critical boundary too close for comfort. ClamAV Anti Virus its highest version for Tiger Server flags "" with not an infection, but a warning - the same internal AV engine error message repeated 244 times, hard to ignore.

This game is repairable by trashing 2 files in Contents totalling 21 MB which reduces the size to a manageable 1.99 GB. The 2 files happen to be 2 of the most annoying of the 5 introductory Logos and they won't be missed.

After installing Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb,
Right-click or control-click "", navigate to Show Package Contents > "Contents/Indy/Movies/" and from there, do trash these 2 files "" & "". After that, REBOOT to cleanse any "system damage". Check that the size of is now less than 2 GB. The repaired still brings on 244 warnings from ClamAV, the warnings precede every content ending with ".pin" and ".gin" so are considered unrelated warnings to what was actually wrong. Done.

Architecture: PPC

System Requirements

The game is compatible up to Mac OS X 10.4.11 (using the Indy Tiger Install update to Begin with, otherwise the CD is only compatible to OS X 10.3). It will install in Mac OS X 10.5.8 but will not play there.

This game works on (2x) PowerMac G4 1.25 GHz MDD 2003 running Mac OS X 10.4.11

Tested runs on (Intel) Rosetta in Tiger, but is incompatible with Rosetta on Leopard/Snow Leopard.

See Important Warning, above!

I did scan the game called Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb with Virus Barrier x5. And found no virus or malware on both. I scan installed game and Original CDs called Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Both original CDs are clean of Virus and malware.

Finally tried this in Rosetta. Works for me here, core2Duo ATIx2600 & Tiger.

Intel CPUs are inferior design to PowerPC. They appear to do PPC emulation so well because most software has become a neverending stream of OS library calls that execute native x86 plus GPU loads that execute independent of the CPU.

and yes, this game rocks!

hmm it sayth G4 in supplied system requirements, I took it as word. And 800 MHz is a late arrival G3 (not to mention 800 MHz is a hefty req. for a yr 2003 game, eh?), in PowerMac land where I come from, an 800 MHz G3 is an "upgraded" chip.

This game requires AltiVec hardware (G4/G5 CPU) which might explain why a) it looks better than other 3d games and b) it can't run on intel macs nor leopard. Tongue

I needed "Toast" to install this disclessly - my 1st time using Toast, or what would've been if I hadn't already burned to disc. Locking our R/W images stops any automatic file system edits from modifying the images as they'd become no-longer-original, but often the locking doesn't affect the software's execution.

Was the trick of locking the disc images successful,Or I was only lucky to install the game discless Tongue

Well,this game is designed for OSX,So it is not recommended to work on classic (even through classic environment).

Is there another trick -> for OS9, to get away from real discs?

So I tried Toast v5.2.1 and yes, in OSX 10.4 when a game demands a physical disc and an image mounted with Apple software isn't good enough, Toast tricks it. But not in OS9, Toast 5 also works in OS9 but isn't fooling games there. I know Indiana-Jones isn't an OS9 game; I played "Payback" and could not get around the disc requirement even with using Toast.

Is there another trick -> for OS9, to get away from real discs?
Plastic trees desperately want to know.


The abbreviated runtime image ("NoCD") linked below is good and around only 155KB. I made by own that is even tinier, 21124 bytes in all, here is the code for it:

Indiana Jones ET Install (folder name to become an image)
..Indiana Jones ET Setup (an OSX .app wrapper)
....Contents (a folder)
......MacOS (a folder)
........compressed (a folder)
..........Cinematics.tar.gz (an empty or nearly empty file)

I've added the User Guide to the page, combining the pages from both earlier manuals and have also corrected the orientation of it for viewing. The earlier two can be removed if no longer needed.

@Scott; Many thanks for your CD upload here, it is excellent. Fives stars from me.

Toast 9 is letting u bypass physical disc requirement, excellent. But only Toast 3 thru 6 are on garden

@SkyCapt: I used Toast 5 on OS X 10.4.11 to mount these and install from. So you can use any version from 5x to 9x on Tiger to do this, it makes no difference. Just remember to lock the Toast image files soon after extracting from the zip and before you mount them.

When I upload this game and I used toast 9. Toast 9 is last toast will works in tiger.

No I get it, Toast 9 is letting u bypass physical disc requirement, excellent. But only Toast 3 thru 6 are on garden and judging by how much use they get here plus all the talk about discs required, these versions probably don't imitate and maybe these don't work in Tiger either. I never used Toast yet and I will need a long time to check this out. Also right now I'm trying to play "Payback" and it wants a physical CD so it'd be nice to get this solved.

Hey, I think you did not get it what I said, I said you just have to install Toast 9 Titanium for Mac 10.4.11, Then after installation there will be option of mounting the disc images by right clicking(ctrl+click),I don' t remember if this option was there before Toast was installed.

SkyCapt's picture
by SkyCapt - 2017, March 3 - 8:04pm

right click, what is that? My Apple mouse only has one button... not funny, I know, right-click=control^click. So... I'll bet your Toast 9 is intercepting the image mount action, especially by opening with "context" while these images aren't Apple format. So Disk Utility doesn't emulate a disc perfectly (in this particular game's toast mode, many other games do work), but sounds like your Toast 9 can fake it, interesting...

G4 User's picture
by G4 User - 2017, March 3 - 5:21pm

Just right click on the image, and there is an option of Mount it, I also have toast 9 titanium install. But the main conclusion is you can play the whole game completely discless

If you don't want to keep the disc images after installing the game, you can simply download the No Cd image from, This Link :'s

Hey,I am using Mac OS X 10.4.11, And I successfully installed INDY,
Steps:-1-First lock both the disc images ET Disk 1 and 2,and Mount it.
2-Download the tiger update of INDY and mount it and open the installer, It will ask for serial(ET6D6C4HCDF43D3H)
3-Then select the destination, Then the game will automatically reads the disk which you have mounted and will successfully install the game.

Tried lock and burn the both CDs in Mac OS X 10.3.9 with toast. The installer update for tiger because the original CD don't install in Mac OS X 10.4.11. If you are running Tiger. Use the IndyMac Tiger install update.dmg to install the game in Tiger. It will install in Tiger and play. But not in leopard.

I tried the Pan installer and it still insists upon real CDs, what OS are you using to install discless, and how are you mounting the images to desktop?

SkyCapt's picture
by SkyCapt - 2017, March 2 - 7:53pm

There is actually just one users manual, and the manual download is incomplete (missing random pages) then the so-called supplement has only those previously-missing pages, could some talented PDF person create a single manual file?


There are 2 different installers. The Tiger update is not a patch I don't think, it's a new installer which seeks the discs. To avoid installing 2 CD twice, I ran the Tiger update first and this required physical CDs here. The installer that comes on disc makes a game that won't run in Tiger, limited to Panther OSX 10.3 without update. Maybe u G4 User installed the Panther version without making discs? I'll try again for going discless, help save plastic trees.

It's a great game ! Those who want to install the game without burning the CD/DVD ,Make sure to lock both the disc images, Then mount it and install it, It will work.

I burned these .toast images without Toast software, I've never used Toast because I've never needed to, I'm not anti toast. OSX (Tiger) will normally mount these images, but Disk Utility won't directly (bypassing the Finder) burn toast images unless you change the image file's Creator Code using a utility like "FileType 101".

When you change Creator Code from "CDr3" (Toast) to "ddsk" (Apple Disk Utility and OS9 Disk Copy), which isn't a real edit anyway, it modifies "metadata" only, then you will be able to drag the .toast images to Disk Utility's workspace in its lower left, and burn direct to disc. The Toast image file has to be unlocked to save edited codes, and Type Code should be and stay "GImg", in case the image you downloaded was stripped of codes or accidentally made into a text document I find sometimes.

Oh yeah, some but not all .toast image files modify themselves and or their Date modified, just by mounting them, so lock those kind of .toast files if you want them kept in original condition.

Indy Emperors Tomb eats Lara Croft for breakfast. Too bad it doesn't run in portrait screen mode in Tiger, that'd been too great. I had to burn both CDs, but it was worth it, installer won't install from images. An >image< of CD #1 must be on the desktop to play, and I had no luck in making an abbreviated discless image file, game must be testing device size as well as data size... remember to increase the full screen resolution, at 1920x1200 it only starts dropping a frame or two (on my super hardware) and looks photorealistic, one of the best PPC native 3D FPS games for Tiger!, probably turns crappy under Rosetta.
