Yesterday I was playing Oregon Trail II without a problem. I kept the program up when I slept the machine. When I "woke up" the computer I started a new journey (to California). All was fine until I hit the 40 Mile Desert, when the sound got all haywire. I made it across the desert (without anyone dying!) and then visited the little town at the edge of it known as Ragtown, hoping to trade. I talked to a man in the village but when I tried to leave the program hung.
Is sleep mode the problem here? Could it have caused this to happen? (I'm playing on 9.2.2 Classic Mode on an iBook G4 with OS X 10.4.10 and have played it on this machine many times before without a problem).
Man do I miss the MECC forums on AOL...I was a regular there in early 1997 to swap Oregon Trail II tips.
EDIT: I should also note that I have the Oregon Trail II 25th Anniversary Limited Edition, not the regular run of the mill OT2 (which I think is still being sold on Amazon, in fact...I recommend it to anyone who wants a good strategy game with a great hunting sim as well as a lot of good historically accurate information).
ANOTHER EDIT: Here's the Amazon link...

You might also want to check your local Office Max or other store that sells jewel cased stuff, they might have one. It's a shame you can't run it on an Intel Mac...they never Carbonized it.
