Maybe I'm going about this in the wrong way. Is there a way to load Mac OS 10.1.5 on a thumb drive and then boot from that drive and load the game onto the thumb? That way I wouldn't have to deal with any OS 9 inconsistencies.

I did install the CarbonLin 1.6.1 on OS 9.0.4 and the Super Nisqually doesn't do anything when I open it. Everything goes back to the desktop. I'm pretty sure my friend and I played it on some kind of OS 9 machine.

You do have to keep them in separate partitions or image files, whichever you prefer. But have you tried installing CarbonLib 1.6.1 on 9.0.4 first? It might be enough for what you need.

I’m going to try the 8.6 route. Am I able to install 8.6 right next to 9? In other words, do I have to delete all the OS 9 files before installing 8.6?

@macsean3 I have hyperlinked a place within this site where you can get CarbonLib 1.6.1. Here is the actual link: http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/carbonlib

You are right, SheepShaver is stuck with 9.0.4 at highest. You probably won't need 9.2.2 for most things, but it's possible to emulate it with QEMU. SheepShaver is much more practical to most people, though, so I suggest you keep using that instead (but feel free to try any other options anytime).

Since you are using SheepShaver, by default I'd recommend using Mac OS 8.6 on it, instead. The reason is that Mac OS 9.0.x versions are less stable and slower than either 8.6 or 9.2, but since only the former is an option, it will usually be preferred.

Anyway, assuming this app here is Mac-OS-compatible (pre-X), any system between 8.6 and 9.2.2 ought to be fine, as long as CarbonLib is at its highest version (1.6.1) just to be sure. If that also doesn't work, let us know, and we will try looking into it.

Hello Jatoba,

I read online that SheepShaver won't work with 9.2.2. The CarbonLib version I have installed is v1.5. I guess I can search for the update online.

I'm using Mac OS 9.0.4 currently.

Are there other emulators that can handle 9.2.2? Thanks...

@macsean3 Is CarbonLib installed and up-to-date (v1.6.1)?

Also, what machine are you using? Whenever possible, upgrade OS 9 to the final version (9.2.2) for better performance, reliability, stability & compatibility. Or, if you can't (i.e. using SheepShaver), then 8.6 will often be preferred.

I've tried opening this Super Collapse CD image and all I get are "Couldn't locate CarbonLib." It's as if the System Files didn't make it into this app.

My error! Thanks for the heads up.

Open Toast first and use the Toast File menu to select the .iso

But the desired application is in the .iso file. Should I drag it to Toast?

If so, then Drag 'n' Drop the file onto the desired application.
This way, it should work.

When you change it to .iso, how do you then open it? I double-clicked the .iso file and got an error message about not being able to find the app that created the item.

When I create a CD image off of a hybrid CD using Toast, I rename the extension from .toast to .iso, and it still works.

Try to rename the extension from .toast to .iso and it should work.

Newbie question - how do I mount this on DAEMON Tools in Windows? (since it doesn't recognise .toast afaik)
