    Put the "Software Restore" disk into your PB, there should be an option to only restore games.

    it appears the the vesion of TH4 that comes preinstalled on the iBooks will only run on the iBooks... i already tried it.

    My friend found a way to do it at one point. It requires getting some sort of receipt hidden file on the software restore disk and putting it in the right place on the computer. PM Bobindashadows and he can tell you what to do.

    I managed this too. It would probably be easier to move the file right from your iBook to the Powerbook, so you don't have to hunt through invisible files and packages. I believe the file is "Oplist install log" I could be wrong though, I deleted my copy of TH from my Powerbook and I'm away from home so I can't mess around on my iMac to make sure.

    So, once you copy the game folder over, copy the file "Oplist install log" from <iBook>/Library/Receipts to <Powerbook>/Library/Receipts and that should do the trick.

    Hi! Ive got an awesomely good pBook, but I dont know if it came with Tony Hawk already installed? :confused: Is it on a software install disk?

    If not why do iBooks get it free, but the more expensive pBooks dont?

    Can you say Chi-City??
    I'm also a bit ticked off at the fact that Powerbooks come with minimal pre-installed applications. I see that Powerbooks are meant for "Power" users, but there should at least be an option for some games. I would have even paid something to get them preinstalled if that's what it would take. I love Tony Hawk (Pro Skater, not the ACTUAL Tony Hawk), and as the days go by I am more and more tempted to buy it for my Powerbook, despite the fact I have it for PS2. Oh the temptations...Apple could (should) have solved this for me. (searching for shaking fist emoticon)
