    I'm trying to run Dark Castle on Mini vMac running System6. I made a 20MB disk image and have a .hqx file of the game and extracted it with Stuffit. Inside is just a folder with 0kb files with no extensions (same with tetris) instead of a .sea file I was expecting. Could this be because I'm running XP or what?

    Yes. You can't use XP (as far as I know, because I've had issues with that in the past) to do anything with old Mac programs. You have to use a Mac with Mac OS X or earlier. It's because XP can't use resource forks, if you want to know.

    Well I've heard of people using XP to run this particular game on this particular emulator with that particular operating system, but I'm just having trouble with the extracting part.
