    Just found an old copy of lemmings, is there any way to run it under Leopard on an Alu iMac.

    Loved that game and would like to play it again.

    Sheepshaver seems to be a pretty popular solution... however it's a bit complicated to get running and some versions of OS9 simply don't work on it.

    By the way you need a copy of OSX8/9 and a valid rom.

    I know that you can use Scumm for the old LucasArts games. Does anyone know where I can buy a copy of them still? I have wanted to play Grimm Fandango and Day Of The Tentacle for so long on my mac but I can't find the discs anywhere.

    Still stuck

    Thanks for your replies. I tried DOSBox, but it didn't recognize the game as dos (?) and sheepshaver blows my mind. I'm not geek enough for it. Am I stuck? Thanks again.
