Renderer Error in OS 9 Game

Post by riven2000 »

Hi All,

I've been trying to run realMyst in SS under OS 9.0.4, and when launching, it gives the error Renderer Check Failed. Does this have to do with VRAM, or something else? Stumped.... :roll:

I think it has to do with the video acceleration it's expecting from the graphics card, doesn't it?

As written at Macintoshgarden:
System requirements Mac:
Power Mac G3 300 MHz 

Mac OS 8.6 or later/64 MB RAM

Mac OS X 10.1 or later/128 MB RAM 

3D video card

16 MB memory
I would try 10.4 and 10.5 in VMWare, but can´t find the time right now.
