    Is there a way to install old "classic environment" games on OSX? Specifically 'Marathon', but I assume it would be the same for all if it is for one. Any advice out there?

    Try installing Rosetta on your Mac. It should be on your installation DVD, or perhaps downloaded from Apple.

    AlephOne did start it up, but every time I tried to start a "new game" it just kicked me out.

    I am sorry it's a bit vague, but I've never done it myself. There are several emulators out there that you could use. Not sure of any good ones, though, but I've never done it. I only know this because one of my friends got an emulator for his computer so he could play PS1 games on Windows XP, so I'm sure there's some emulators for Mac OS X as well.

    Could you be a little more specific?

    Did you download the M1A1 scenario for the Aleph One website?

    Within 2 minutes of downloading Aleph one and M1A1, I was playing the original Marathon.
