    I think Carmageddon is OS 9 only, so it won't work on Intel Macs, since they do not support Classic at all.

    You can definitely run it in Windows XP SP2; you might even be able to play it while in OS X using VMWare Fusion (given the recent improvements in Direct X support), so it's not much of a bigger stretch than playing the Mac version in classic mode on a PPC system.

    This article details what you need to do to get it to run in XP:

    If all else fails, just play it in Bootcamp. It's worth it, C2 was a great game!

    Carmageddon 1, 2, 3

    There's a DOXBox version of the first version of Carmageddon, so you can play the (PC) version on OS X.

    Carmageddon 2 I can still play on my old Power Computing / OS 9.. with voodoo2 card :p Yes, it must be 12 years old by now.. Wonder how long it will stay alive.

    Carmageddon 3 (Carmageddon TDR 2000) was never ported to Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X, so I tried to install it on a Boot Camp Windows XP partition, but no luck.. any tips?

    Re: Carmageddon II

    It works, with cider. I used to play the game, it was my favorite a few years 5 or 6 years ago, and I tried it out on Mac OS X a while ago. It works, but the graphics are buggy... Anyways, try it out. Mac has plenty of Windows resources available ;).

    I thought I had made another post yesterday, but I don't see it anymore so here's another attempt:

    All I know after *extensive* searching for answers on how to get Carmageddon 2 running on a Mac Pro with XP sp2, is that the people I spoke all use a 'genuine' old PC.

    Until macosxisdabest brought up the ciderized version. I have no experience with ciderized versions of any software.

    I found the ciderized version of C2. Too bad I can't find a ciderized C3. How are the chances for an attempt to make a ciderized Carmageddon 3?

    Carmageddon TDR 2000 is terrible :( It's basically racing around laps, they took out all the fun stuff. And most importantly, you can only control the car with the arrow keys. It's not possible to remap to the numpad!!!

    I have the original CD and would actually be interested in giving it a try. Is Cider free to download?

    No; using it with any games other than those which are licensed for use is probably illegal.

    Anyway, you could always get Flatout 2, which runs natively in OS X and is rather Carmageddon-like.

    That's too bad, but I'm so curious by now, I want to try it anyway.

    I bought it on Amazon, 2nd hand!

    Ciderized versions can be made with CrossOver. They even have a FAQ about it. Just install CrossOver and insert the CD of C3 and it will likely already ask you if you want to ciderize it.

    Keep us posted, will you?!

    Yeah, Flat Out 2 is a great game, with great graphics :D, and there is a trial version on the apple's website...
