    It's a fascinating game -- very engrossing and replayable, and great plot. I haven't tried the Mac version, but I run the Windows version under Vista on my MacBook Pro to great effect.

    It's a great RPG, but the Mac version is ancient and is made to run on OS 9, and it's very buggy in OS X, probably won't even work with Leopard. But there is an unofficial homemade Cider port of it that works extremely well. I can't link to it so you'll have to find it yourself.

    It is worth getting to work - it is absolutely in the Top 10 games of all time, and certainly one of the best RPG's ever. I have had it working on Tiger on a 1st gen Macbook Pro, but haven't reinstalled on my current new MBP.

    I play it on a MBP. BGTutu, also. I am running Leopard. It has less issues on Windows, but very much playable in Leopard. There is one major glitch. When you first install and play your first game it will crash when saving. It tries to create a temp folder, but creates a temp file. Just delete the file and create a folder.

    Never Winter Nights is another excellent one.
