    I'm new to Mac and these forums, so sorry if this topic has already been discussed.

    I'm using a Mac with OS X El Capitan.

    I wanted to install and play an older game called "Dungeon Siege" that I've played before on PC. I found a used MacSoft copy of the game that indicated that it was for Mac OS X (10.1.5 or higher). But when trying to install the game there's an error:

    "You can't open the application "Dungeon Siege Installer" because PowerPC applications are no longer supported"

    Based on my internet searches, it seems like there isn't a work around for this. But I wanted to post the question here to see if anyone had some useful information.

    Thanks in advance.

    Might work if you install Windows on the Mac.
