    Sorry.

  • Actually, if 68K processors can run it, you might be able to play it through (url="http://"http://www.hot.ee/macgames/emu.htm")Basalisk(/url). However, I've never actually used Basalisk myself, and I couldn't give you any guarantees on speed/playability.

  • Welcome to the boards, fizbiker :)

    Basilisk II is better than Basilisk, or so I hear. I don't actually have a PC, so I wouldn't know what using an emulator on one is like. But I've heard that with Basilisk II and a pretty decent PC, EV Override runs fairly smoothly. I've heard tha a super-duper PC (an impossible paradox, IMO ;)) using Basilisk II can run EV Nova for Mac, but it's still a little rocky, which is why the PC community demanded a PC version. But considering the age of Cythera, and the fact that I can run it on my 11 year old Performa PowerPC, it should work fine on an emulator.

    Note to fizbiker: If you didn't get my email, the answer to the request you emailed me is no. A definative and resounding no. It goes against every moral fiber of my being to fulfill that particular request.

    An emulator is a program that lets you run software designed for one set of hardware on a different set of hardware. For example, Basilisk lets you run Mac software on a PC.
