    I have a brand new Macbook and I recently got a couple of used Macintosh games (Doom II and Myst) but they are not allowing me to play. My computer recognizes that there is a cd-rom in the drive but it has disabled all of the clickable icons for instalation and running the game. Is this because the games are too old for my computer? Or because they were already installed on someone elses computer? Does anyone know if there is something i can do about this problem?

    Desparate to shoot hell-beast aliens.

    Not sure about Doom II, but the original Myst is a Classic application, which is not supported on Intel Macs. Aside from not OS-X native, it's actually 68K code (Motorola 68xxx CPU).

    Sorry....

    edit: looks like Doom II came out in 1994, so it would be Classic also.

    edit: here's some info one a couple of projects aimed at running Classic on Intel Macs. The VNC idea would use a separate, networked, PPC machine. http://www.zisman.ca/Articles/2006/LEM-Classic-on-Intel.html
