    Hi there,

    I have bought a "new" Macintosh Classic (from 1990 :eek:) I want to play old games (Shufflepuck Café, Flight Simulator etc.) , and download it. I copy the .sit file(s) to the floppy, but the problem is: how expand i the .sit files on the Macintosh Classic? I have tried Stuffit Lite 3.6 and many other programs on the Macintosh but it doesn't expand the sit files.

    Some specs:

    -Macintosh Classic from 1990
    -System 6.0.7
    -1.44mb Disk drive



    PS. Sorry for my bad english! :(

    Goodness! Now we are traveling back in time :) Are you using Stuffit Expander? I can't remember if that was part of the Stuffit Lite suite. You will definitely need Expander to open those files.

    For interest' sake, I suggest you download (on a modern Mac) the application Mactracker, which gives the specs, history etc of every Mac ever made. Also http://lowendmac.com/compact/macintosh-classic.html.

    Hello Berrie,

    Where do you downloaded the games Flight Simulator and Shufflepuck Café for your Mac?

    Please let me know.

    Happy New Year from Mexico City!

    Gotta tell you... with the thread being five months old and there being only one post, I don't think he'll be back... ever.

    And we're not going to tell you THAT, anyway.
