This game works with: SheepShaver,

1st Download contains a full rip of CD1. That's data track and audio track. This image needs to be written to a CD to be usable. The audio part isn't needed for the game, it's just a fun bonus containing fake ads from YDKJ1+2. The data track contains these audio tracks as mp3 files. (zip file contains .bin and .cue file)
2nd Download contains only the data track of CD1. (zip file contains .bin file)
3rd Download is CD2 (zip file contains .bin and .cue file)

You will need at least the 2nd and the 3rd download file.

Installer is on CD1, CD2 is needed to play the game.
If you want a full install copy the files inside the folder J3Stuff from CD2 into your J3Stuff folder from your installed game. You will be asked if you want to replace QHeaders.srf, click yes (it's actually the same file). Now you can play the game without CD2 inserted.

Other games in this series: Volume 1, Volume 2 (FR, UK, US), Volume 3 (DE, US), The Ride (US), Offline, Louder! Faster! Funnier!, Movies, Sports, Television, Head Rush

Architecture: PPC

Back of the CD says 68040 or PPC is needed. This is wrong! A PPC is needed!

Jau, Deutsch ist Muttersprache.
Der Finder mit dem installierten Spiel sieht bei mir praktisch gleich aus - nur das eben die Exception 1 kommt. CD2 kann SS in 10.6.8 lesen.

CD1 musste ich als "Unix" in SS mounten um die CD überhaupt benutzen zu können.
Ich probiere mal deinen DL2, vielleicht geht das besser. Mac Binary kann im SS GUI als image hinzugefügt werden.

I was not able to run the game with SS, neither with a 10.6.8 host nor with 10.11.5.
Installation from CD1 worked when the CD was mounted as "Unix".
Second CD does mount in SS on 10.6.8.
The Second DL on the page is Mac binary, which SS can mount when its added in the GUI.

Edit: Seems it was my bad and/or something went wrong moving the Jack files from CD2.
Game is running now with install from CD1 (data partition) and CD2 mounted in SS.

Please use ISO/TOAST wherever possible for preserving HFS CDs and only use bin/cue if you must.

Hi 24bit,

do you speak german? If not: The message says you need System 7.1 or later. Which is weird as you are using 8.5.
I'm using a 8GB disk image, created with SheepShaver.
Maybe something went wrong at copying files from CD2? Might try a normal install?

Thanks for your work MetalSnake!
I did burn your bin/cues to CD and managed to install from CD in SheepShaver.
I also copied the stuff over from CD2, as you suggested.
The game does not seem to work here, neither with D-8.5 nor D-7.6.

This is the error I am getting:
(description, optional)

I might try 7.5.2, which is the lowest OS SS can use, but I doubt that will cure it.
Which were your settings for SS when running your game?

Edit: Just saw in your other thread it was 10.11/7.6. I´ll try that.
Maybe the game dislikes my 7GB disk image...
