    Hmm. I was under the impression that Civ II worked fine under the Classic environment in 10.3 (but not 10.2 or less).

    BTW, did the missile code I gave you help any (or will it down the road)?

      It does, but the newer computers don't come with OS 9.2 preinstalled so you have to track down a copy.

      That's why I want to try and figure out how to carbonize them.

      The missile code will help, I just haven't had any time to use it yet.

        FlameFlash:

        That's odd. Earlier in this thread I was told that Civ II works smoothly in the Classic shell used by 10.3 to run older apps. But 10.2 and lower were rougher ...

          Nope, they still run smoothly here too (in X.2)

          The problem comes from the fact that the newer Macs don't have 9.2 pre-installed so the Classic shell is useless until you find a disk.

            Mine battled in 10.2 but flies in 10.3.

              Good grief. I'm going to a PC ...

              Let's see: 10.3 comes with a shell capable of emulating the 9.x environment, but unless you can find a copy of 9.x to install physically, the shell won't work?

              Gods almighty. Yep, I'm going to a PC or sticking with my ancient iMac 333mhz.

                  Try looking at the Software Install (Restore) disk.

                  One of the options is to install the Classic environment. I just don't think they do it by default.

                    /me shrugs.

                    All I know is that I'll be digging out my ol' OS 9 disk that came with my current system when I get a new one. I still have the 9.2.2 disk images too.

                      Huh. I was over at the MacCentral forums and the folks there said the Classic environment is more than enough to run older apps ... meaning you don't need the actual 9.x OS, the Classic shell is enough.

                        Hang on... there's a Classic 'shell' as well?

                        So theoretically I could uninstall OS 9 and everything would be okay?

                            Well, when/if I get a new comp, I'll try it out prior to installing OS 9

                              Wouldn't it be kind of funny if, all this time, you've been installing OS9.x when it really wasn't needed?
