    Hi,
    Now that steam is out I added all my games in steam.
    Though I can't seem to add black & white :S
    It doesn't show up in the list of games, when I do "Add non-steam game" and neither when I do "browse" to browse to it's location.
    As you can see here, it is an "Application" and it's in the map "Black & White Data"

    But it isn't showing when browsing in steam:

    Anyone has this problem and/or knows how to solve it ?
    (I also tried to make an alias to the B&W app but alliasses don't show up either when browsing with steam)

    Thanks !

    Black & White 1 is a PPC native game (although it plays fine in Rosetta) this means the application does not end with ".app". Steam does not appear to look for applications just files with .app on the end of the file name. This would have to be fixed by Valve.

    However I have a possible workaround, if you get info on the BW1 application and change the name to end with .app it should appear in Steam. I don't think this will cause any problems to the game but I have not tested it in steam to see if this works.

    Best of luck!

    Haha, I just came here to say that I fixed it :p
    And I indeed just had to add .app at the end, and it still runs.
    Well, even though I also just fixed it myself, thanks a lot for your reply !

    Thanks !
