Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Virtual Physics 2 is part of the unique Virtual Science middle school CD-ROM series. (From the ReadMe File)

The 1st download contains the demo version of Virtual Physics 2 for Macintosh, compressed using Mac OS X. This was taken from the CD-ROM itself since it has both hybrid Mac and PC versions on the same disc, but I am supplying the Mac version only.

The 2nd download is a hybrid Mac/PC disc image.

The 3rd download is a StuffIt version for Classic systems.

Tested on my Indigo iMac G3 (2000, 350MHz) running Mac OS 9.2.1 with QuickTime 6.0.3 and found no issues. This also works with early versions of Mac OS greater than System 7.0 with QuickTime versions starting with 2.5, but I have not tested that. If you have any questions or reviews regarding this game, please comment.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC

25 MHz 68040 Quadra-based Macintosh or higher (including Power Macintosh), System 7.0 up to Mac OS 9.2.2, QuickTime 2.5 up to 6.0.3, 12 MB of RAM, Quad-speed CD-ROM drive (For CD-ROM version).

Runs best with at least Thousands of colors.

Virtual Physics: The Eggs of Time works fine on my PowerBook G4 (15-inch Aluminum, Early 2005) running Mac OS X 10.4.11 with Classic Environment installed. The graphic processing appears to be sluggish when played on OS X Classic, but other than that, no other issues found!

Hi Katie,

I have added a StuffIt version as requested. But, however, the Toast image can be extracted well under Mac OS 9 using ZipIt for example. The only little problem is that "Type" & "Creator" are not the expected ones. Toast can mount it nevertheless. Then, I have tested it with BII & SheepShaver. This demo works well with them, with the exception that it requires thousands of colors at least. It can run with 256 colors, but animations looks weird. FYI, I have also tested it with Mini vMac II & it works too, but with the same limitation (nothing more than 256 colors with it).

Cheers. Smile

The first download is a ZIP file, so only Mac OS X user can extract, and there should be a Classic Mac OS-friendly version of the ZIP in a StuffIt format if someone can do that for me (and some versions of OS X may not preserve the resource forks correctly, but the TOAST image remains intact)! Also, can someone check this under SheepShaver and Basilisk II? I don't have the proper knowledge on emulators. Let me know the results! Thanks!

Could you check that the second upload is a hybrid?

Yes it is. Also, on a classic system; If you use the Virtual CD/DVD Utility to mount the toast image, both parts Mac & Win mount, allowing you to view the Windows content.

Uploaded a Hybrid TOAST Image. This was created in Roxio Toast Titanium 6. I presume that the difference between the standalone Macintosh version and this disc image is that it can play on both System 7.0-Mac OS 9.2.2 and on Windows 3.1-XP. Could you check that the second upload is a hybrid? I think I used the Save as disc image function in Toast to do that! You can edit the description if needed. Thanks! P.S. If the first download link does not work, then the second one will! Laughing out loud
