  1. I've had several PhoneNet adapters in my collection for many years but never used them since my SE/30 has an Ethernet card. But today I was thinking about multiplayer games like MazeWars which might be fun for myself and my two kids. I have a Mac 512k (64k ROMs) and a PhoneNet adapter for it (including terminating resistor), and I also have two Farallon PhoneNet adapters with round connectors for use with more modern Compact Macs like the SE/30 shown here: I am running System 6.0.8 and System 7.1 and 7.5.5 on my two SE/30's, and I have pre-System6 operating systems on floppies for my Mac512 (again, which has the original 64k ROMs, not the newer 128k ROMs of the Mac 512kE or Plus). Since I've never used PhoneNet before, I have the following questions: 1. Can one even play games like MazeWars across different Macs and operating systems? (A Mac 512k is quite different from an SE/30 in terms of floppy disk drive capacity, ROM, RAM and OS compatibility.) 2. What specific software must I have installed on System 6.0.8, System 7.1 and pre-System6 Macs? And, is there a minimum System version for this to work? (Is use of a 400k boot floppy out of the question?) 3. Can I use regular telephone wire? (The kind of wire you'd use to connect a wired phone to a wall socket?) 4. Say I have my Mac512 and both SE/30's all connected via the PhoneNet adapters, and say I have all the required software installed. Now let's say I sit down at the Mac512. I assume I will see both SE/30's in the Chooser? And do I select both SE/30's in the Chooser to start networking with them? 5. Will this LocalTalk setup work with pretty much any multi-player networked Mac game? Thanks. P.S. Yes, I am aware of the Definitive Guide to Networking, but it doesn't answer my questions specifically. Indeed, answers to my questions above may become the new definitive guide since they don't seem to be answered briefly and specifically elsewhere.
  2. Nasir Gebelli I just noticed these interviews posted recently by Apple Time Warp... http://appletimewarp.libsyn.com/nasir-gebelli-part-1-of-3 http://appletimewarp.libsyn.com/episode-4-nasir-gebelli-part-2-of-3 http://appletimewarp.libsyn.com/episode-5-nasir-gebelli-part-3-of-3
  3. Hi guys, Here's a scenario that only the experienced gurus of the Mac Liberation Army can answer. I'm using a Quad core G5 for games that span the old Mac Classic all the way to Mac OS (10.4-ish) I'm stuck between two setups for the G5: 1 - Mac OS 10.4.11 using Classic mode and playing games that only support up to 10.4 2 - Mac OS 10.5.8 supplemented with Mini V Mac and Sheepsaver to play all games up to Mac OS 9.01 and then OS 10.5.8 for the rest I've been told that OS 10.5.8 has some optimizations for the G5 that 10.4.11 doesn't BUT I've also been told that the universal binary for 10.5.8 runs slower than 10.4.11 which is still PPC oriented There are some issues with Classic mode also: can't mount a CD that Classic Mode games can see, for example If any1 has any experience with this that would be great. BTW, the G5 has - Quad Core 11,2 hardware - 16GB of RAM - SATA III SSD (I understand the G5 doesn't have a SATA II interface though) Please let me know what you guys think.

    Games for Color Classic

    Hi Everyone, A while back (maybe the past few months), there was a thread on games that worked well with the stock resolution on a Color Classic. In that thread was a post with a good 15 to 20 games listed. Can anyone link that thread? I'm having trouble finding it. Also, feel free to add any other games to this list Thanks, just.in.time
  5. Hi guys, So there are some games that I want to run from MacIntosh Garden which need Mac OS 9. (Marathon in particular, anything in color) I've been looking around to see what my options are. There are a few but being so new to Mac I can't figure out which is the best one. So I need your help guys. Any feedback would be appreciated. Here are the options that I can see: 1 - Run SheepShaver on my iBook G4 to get Mac OS 9 going. I'm not sure how well the games will run considering the iBook specs 2 - Run Mac OS natively(?) on this iBook G4 ( not sure if this is even possible with my hardware) 3 - Buy a PowerMac G4 and run MacOS 9 natively. I like this solution but you need a treasure map to navigate the compatibility landmines of G4 hardware and Mac OS 9 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_9 4 - Buy a modern Mac to run SheepShaver upon. This is a very expensive solution I'm sure there are options I haven't thought of and also nuances to these options that I might not understand at this time. Any help on this topic is appreciated.
  6. I went to the Goodwill thrift shop in Columbus, NE when seeing a friend I made at Anime Nebraskon, and my wife and I found several things we wanted. I got several games including Oddworld (PS1 game), and several PC games, but I got a perfect in box (maybe installed once?) Diablo II BattleChest with LOD: Expansion pack and keys and strategy Guide. I also found a CD copy of Sim City 3000 for the Mac. I didn't know it was for Mac OS until I got it home and went to install it on Windows 98 SE. Is this rare? I looked on eBay and can't find a single copy of Sim City 3000 for Mac OS. I only found Windows (and I think playstation or something). The game disc is in perfect condition, has a key code (i think) and the case is in good condition. It wasn't in box but it works. Recently I got a Pentium 4 1.5Ghz with 256MB RAMBUS (I upgraded to 512MB last week) Dell Dimension 8100 which I am turning into a multi-OS system to play old games (Transport Tycoon/Deluxe, Monopoly, Several other games, probably Diablo II as well). So I am working with that for other games. I have yet to haul out my G3 Beige to play either Diablo II (more likely to leave that on the Pentium 4) or Sim City. My back is messed up so I can't lift the desktop to set it into place. Probably sometime over the next month I will do it and let you know what I think. The last time I played Sim City it was Sim City 2000 (which I still have a copy on CD with Urban Renewal Kit) and that was maybe 10 years ago? Whatcha think?
  7. Hi, I am searching for games for the Macintosh 128K and/or 512K that has been released since year 2000. Especially homebrew games I am interested in. Does anyone of you know sources or titles? Thanks! µP
