    Hi

    Don't normally use my mac for gaming, (save it for my game consoles!) So I know very little about mac games, but I am hankering after playing the old Classic: Moo (master of orion).

    Anyone no where I can download a version or even buy one?

    Will it run in OSX or will i need something to make it run (like dosbox for the PC)

    ...or is by best option just to get a version for windows and run via parallels (would like to avoid this if poss)

    Also wouldnt mind moo2 if anyone knows where i could get that?

    Any help appreciated...thanks

    Many thanks Hansr, I have parallels so will run in that, was hoping for a version that run in mac, ahh well will have to slum it on windows!

    *edit* tried running that version under parallels on windows 7, pretty buggy and keeps crashing :(

    I had luck with e-bay.

    Granted there are times it cost more than when it was new. Still I would tend towards running ALL MOO games (1,2, and 3) under Windows as mods/fixes are best there.

    Thanks for all the replies, cant get moo to work very well under parallels and win 7 at all.

    managed to get moo going in dos box, minus the sound which i can live without.....is there any way to make the dos box bigger? mines stuck in a box 3 inches by 2 :(

    on a happy note found a java version of rebelstar rebelstar 2 and laser squad!
