    Hey guys, my friend and I are trying to get Escape Velocity working on our Macbook Pro's, for a bit of nostalgia. :) We're not sure where we should start. We want to play the original Escape Velocity, not the new Nova, and we're pretty sure that we have to use an emulator. I found Basilisk II online, and I've had a ROM from one of our old 68k macs from back in the day. (I keep a close eye on it, as the computer has since died and there's no way we'd be able to get another copy of it.) Where should we go from here? I can't figure out how to install an OS, I don't have an old CD or anything like that. I just get the flashing floppy icon with a question mark. (That sure brought back memories. :rolleyes: ) If anybody here has gotten it working, I'd love to know how! Thanks.

    If you buy EV nova you can install plug ins which do a total conversion so it's like the orignal game or override, that's how I play them.
