    I found my old Halo disk for Mac, but the problem is the program was meant to run on PowerPC architecture. Is there a good emulator that will allow me to run this program? PLEASE PROVIDE A LINK!!!! :D

    Install it and download the Universal Binary update.

    Errr... How? Software update doesn't show anything. (I'm noob at this PPC to Intel stuff)

    Because Software Update doesn't do anything not made by Apple. Go to the Apple site and download the update (It'll be under games).

    Have you tried Halo on your Intel Mac (without any updates--just the original PPC version)?

    Most PPC software runs just fine on Intel Macs, thanks to the built-in Rosetta PPC emulation.

    Games, in my experience, run better (by better, I mean more usably) than other PPC applications. This is because of their dependence on graphics cards, rather than CPUs, which require no emulation.

    That said, the Intel update would certainly be worth the $5.

    You don't need a separate emulator to run PPC software.

    Just run it like normal.

    It just opened, then fuzzed a bunch of colors, and then closed. And I would rather find a free solution... :)

    You need the 2.0 update to play with most people nowadays anyway, the only free way would be stealing. Just go buy the 2.0 update for $5 and be done with it.
