See my post above yours. Can you say "ASCII"? Still a great game, though! ∞ was a great game too, btw.

I don't know about Marathon, but Starcraft has been Carbonized since early 2002. The latest patch is a free update.

Wow, i gotta pay better attention to these things. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" /> I don't play many games anyway, but unreal and starcraft are my favs. Too bad theres no update for Warcraft II.

Its pathetic but I have never purchased a Game EVER for mac or PC, and the only game I have played on my mac was Chess.

...Thank god, however, in reality I am not as booring as you would assume after reading that quick above splurge. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

Marathon on OSX is made possible by an open source project called <a href="http://source.bungie.org/" target="_blank">Aleph One</a>. It's pretty stable and works with only minor glitches on most of the mods (Evil, Morgana, Red, etc.). Fun Stuff.

nadnerb,

Do you have a good Galaga ROM? I have been looking for one. I'm using MacMame for X(.60a) and the ones that I DL'd and put in the ROM folder don't show up. They come in folders full of disc images and other stuff. What part of the ROM DL do I put in the ROM folder? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'm new to MacMame. Thanks,

Scott

try:

and

<a href="http://www.mame.dk" target="_blank">mame.dk</a>

They're both pretty good.

edit: don't unzip the roms.. put the zip file in the roms folder

Thanks! No wonder they were not working. I was unzipping them. I see a lot of Galagas out there. Which is the best(most original/least bugs)?

i know this thread is mostly over, but could everyone also include the hardware on which they are playing these games? I have an iBook 700 with Radeon Mobility 16mb, and am wondering what my little book can handle.

I've got one too, and it can pretty much handle anything I can throw at it...Deus Ex, Red Faction, Summoner, Rune, FAKK2, DS9 The Fallen, Warcraft III...No One Lives Forever runs almost as bad as it does on my G4/400, though I'm sure that's because I haven't upgraded my RAM yet. I brought it to a LAN Party once and I got a couple of good compliments from people who were amazed to see good Q3 framerates from a laptop.

Just the same, I'd probably stay away from really hardware-intense games like Giants, Sacrifice, Jedi Knight II or Soldier of Fortune II.

Oh, and once I get around to doing it, I'm going to see if Tenebrae Quake is going to work on it as well.

On my To Do:

SimCity 4. WHEN!
Avernum
Unreal Tournament 2003
EV Nova. I just started, looks cool.
Glider X. It appears you still can't make your own houses?

Where do people get N64 ROMs? I'm looking for James Bond, Perfert Dark, Smash Bros, Mario kart, Zelda, Mario tennis, golf, party. I own these but it'd be cool to take them on the road with my iBook and a <a href="http://www.kernel.com/html/products.html" target="_blank">Joyport</a>. Anyone tried a Joyport in OS X.2?

I just play games on Snes9x. I tried playing WC3 on my 667 TiBook, but I think that maybe I need more RAM (I have 256meg) because even at medium settings the game tends to slow down, this was bearable up to a point in the game where one of the campaigns had too many units and it was ass slow.
