So this wa...

Re: Struggling to install AOE2 on OS9

Is the disk with the systems folder the one called "Mac OS ROM" or is it "Mac OS9.dsk"? Or is it something/somewhere else.

Re: Struggling to install AOE2 on OS9

The game says it requires quicktime player v.5 to run properly and needs to install it. It says that I need to instal it on a disk with a systems folder. but...

But when i try to run the scripts i get this error message: "“Delete Prefs File.app” (or "Zap PRAM.app") is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash." Not su...

Re: Switching from COI 4.0.1 to SheepShaver

I'm a little confused about step 4. Use the scripts in that folder to delete both the prefs file and the nvram file. (After this you should not launch COI anymore, because that will again create those files with content that is specific to COI.) I don't know where to find the scripts or the prefs/ n...

Re: Struggling to install AOE2 on OS9

So when I copied it into the COI the emulator just saw it as a regular file folder. When I was trying to install I was just clicking on th...

Re: Struggling to install AOE2 on OS9

Hey, Thanks so much for answering so fast. If I left click on the file in question I don't get the option to "show original" so i'm fairly confident that it isn't an alias. But I'm not at all an expert so I wouldn't be surprised if i was wrong. Either way here's a rundown of what i did: - I download...
