    I am trying to play an old mac game called warlords on my intel mac laptop running leopard. I have yet to find a version of the game created for something other than mac os classic or windows. Is there any way around this? If I used boot camp and dual booted into tiger would that fix my problem cause tiger has the classic environment but I dont have a ppc. If that would work I am wondering if there was the potential for some of my stuff on my 100 gb hard drive to get deleted in the process because I only have 30 gb left and no external hard drive to back stuff up on. Any help would be appreciated

    I dont think you can install Tiger with Boot Camp, but I have been wrong before ;)

    You might want to try SheepShaver
    It might do what you want

    I tried SheepShaver but it kept giving me an error message saying cannot open ROM file. I just downloaded it not really knowing how to use it tho.

    Sheepshaver is a bit of work. I recommend you run the game on Windows. Apple isn't interested in the past.
