I read on the site that the guy who programmed these games used zip-it 1.4 to compress the games.
Download zip-it from here: http://www.info-mac.org/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=1266
, install it and use it to unzip your game.
By default Zip-It applies MacBinary encoding to each file, so in theory using Stuffit Expander on the "SimpleText" documents would do the trick too.
Yep, the drive uses SCSI, but the dock port is parallel. There's no way for SheepShaver to interact with the drive, only BasiliskII?
There's no way for the computer to interact with the drive, period. You would need a SCSI interface for your laptop.
I see there are USB to SCSI adapters out there, but they're kind of expensive; another parallel-port Zip drive might be a better idea.
I think you can access Macintosh Zip discs using HFV Explorer or possibly TransMac.
