Hi,

Drag the game file onto the Stuff-it expander program inside the Stuffit folder. It will expand the game.

That CDR file should be added to the disk images list as a CD, and not copied into a disk image itself with HVF Exporer. Once it's added to the images list and BII is launched, it'll show up as a CD on the desktop. Then you can copy the game off onto your image, or run the installer if there is one.

Personally, I have a SheepShaver instance set up to run Lode Runner Online, which is in colour, uses a larger screen, and has extra modes.

I do not know exactly what Cat_7 meant when he told to expand the game with Stuffit Expander. In this case, a stuffed disk image, the .sit file should be expanded outside BasiliskII on the host and the resulting .cdr disk image should be added to the volumes list in the GUI.

Cat_7 could not be sure of the contents of the sit file before it was expanded ;-)
