You do not mention which is you host system. I suppose it is OsX or macOS.

Again guessing how you moved the game into the emulator, I suppose you used the shared folder / Unix disk feature. If you did, then you may have kept the game on the Unix volume or you dragged the game directly from Unix to the desktop. If that is what you did, the game will not run and you will get unhelpful error messages.

See the explanation about how to use the the shared folder / Unix disk in the setup manual: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sh ... _unix_disk

If your setup is different, please explain in detail what you did and how you did it.

Oh sorry... ok so

my host is Win 10 64bit and i moved the files making an .iso in win 10 then i mounted it on sheepshaver so when i start i found the "disk" with the file.
The game files was unstuffed directly on the mac.

Thanks for the fast reply :smile:

The game from MacGarden is a sit compressed folder. SIT can only be inflated again on a Mac properly.
As you already did that, could it be the ISO you made?
Usually you would move the sit files to the emulated Macs HDD via "This PC" and unstuff with StuffitExpander.

To get things rolling, feel free to try this zipped .img.

Unzip with your favourite utility in Windows and add the resulting Prince Of Destruction.img to SheepShavers volumes tab in the GUI to mount it.

On a side note, the game also works in Basilisk II and MiniVMac II all the way down to 7.1.
Just in case SheepShaver should be too fast or behave weird otherwise.
