    I recently purchased an oldie but a goodie, "Titanic: Adventure Out of Time." I ran it on my Powerbook G4 (not Intel based) and it opened Classic, but said I need a system folder for Mac OS 9.1 (or later).
    I do not have the installation discs that may have supposed to have come with the computer.

    How do I get this old school (1997) game to work on my PowerBook?

    the error message was telling you the truth, you need an OS 9 installation disk so you can install OS 9 to use in classic. No way around it.

    Actually, the best way to install Classic is to use your system discs (which have Classic and everything it needs on them); no need for an OS 9 disc. Although you don't seem to have your system discs. Try to get a replacement off eBay or something.

    The exception is if you have a Mac that can boot directly into Mac OS 9, then you need to have a copy of Mac OS 9 to install to be able to boot directly into Mac OS 9.
