it has a few more levels

Thanks! I was aware of the 32X version, was just curious to see the Macintosh one. This game seems to be a pain to get running as I couldn't even find youtube videos about it...

Someone at Emaculation just pointed out that Mace, a relatively new contender, was just updated to work with Warcraft. Or work better, anyway.

Actually, Mini vMac's Mac II emulation is excellent. It's officially beta, but it works really well. I've tried at least Prince of Persia 1 on it, and it ran great.

yep, MAC Mini user here. the new 64 bit O/S is a pain in the back, though. I occasionally over time remember how to install DBGL. but I forgot it again. Part o the reason is each New Update to the Mac O/S, changes everything. what once a month for another update.

a mac is just a big pain in the back!

That's sad to hear, really. 😢

I hoped, that macOS, at least, is a safe harbor, at least.
You know, the big three are Win,Mac, Linux.
Niche OSes like RISCOS, AROS, BSD, Minix 3 and Oberon are cool, but you can't even use them for an 4th grader's homework. 😑

I firstly downloaded mac emulators in 2007 but it was difficult to me to make them work. I did manage to run basilisk but I didn't like the result. I didn't know anything about mac gaming since then and now I am Mac fanatic with 6 retro Macs. Lot of Mac games are technically better than other formats. For instance Blackthorne has greater graphics and music directly from CD. Prince of Persia 1 and 2 have also better graphics with hires resolution. Flashback, Doom, Heretic, Monkey Island, Dark Forces etc. have better graphics and sound. On the other hand there are lot of dos games that support the amazing roland and general midi sound. I feel that it's difficult to have a good result with Mac emulation. The feeling of using a real computer is great.

What didn't you like about it?

There's a thread for those:
games that are better on a Macintosh

For instance Blackthorne has greater graphics and music directly from CD. Prince of Persia 1 and 2 have also better graphics with hires resolution. Flashback, Doom, Heretic, Monkey Island, Dark Forces etc. have better graphics and sound.

Fortunately some of those can be played on other platforms without a full Macintosh emulator.

You are aware future Apple computers will be ARM based, right?
