    I'm not that knowledgeable on software , but I have a MacBook that runs on OS X and I want to know how to play games that run on OS. Do I need an emulator? If so, what kind? Any other info would be appreciated!

    If so, you can, but only with Sheepshaver...

    Oh sorry! I have Treasure Cove (is that classic OS?) and I have a DOSBox Emulator. When I just click on the Treasure Cove icon, it says:

    "You cannot open the application "Treasure Cover" because it is not supported on this system." I also downloaded Basilisk II but unfortunately my head's spinning reading their website because I don't know what they're talking about.

    Have you used SheepShaver before? I just downloaded it and I think I'm reading the guide but I'm at a loss. I'm so analog :( If you know what to do, may I IM you on MSN or AIM?

    No I have not used it - I have no classic apps. But there are plenty of users here that have. You may want to change the thread title to say "Need help with SheepShaver and classic apps"

    You should just edit this thread's title.
