KQ has history with mac? you mean to say there are actually games out there for those who dont use their macs as radios/dvd players/paper weights ?

I'm being serious! >:   Don't be a well...  Jerks about this.

Opps it was IBM-PC, but I they might have came out on the macs anyhow I misread...  Still... you should think about making this into a zip file so Mac users can play with the AGS MAC runtime.  I was wondering if AGDI would allow this sort of thing.

I believe people have gotten the game to run on Linux using the Linux AGS program. It may be possible to get it running on Macs as well, though I haven't heard of anyone doing it yet.

If there is an AGS platform for Macs then a knowledgable indivdual should have no problem getting it working.

This is the thread that has the AGS Mac files in it over at the AGS forums. You might inquire over there how one would get it running. However, we won't support the game on any system other than a PC. You are likely to experience a lot of bugs when using a version of AGS that they game wasn't designed and tested for.

My next question will be do you mind if I host where a zipfile containing the game data and the mac runtime.  The reason I ask because at your website your installtion file is a exe.

I actually found that VPC running WIN95 on an older Mac actually worked PERFECTLY for Maniac Mansion Deluxe and King's Quest 2. King's Quest 1 ran slowly though.

Well True there is virtual PC.  Only problem is with that it's expensive and taxing on system hardware and some people refuse to even emulate that very stuff. |I

Now now, be nice... Macs aren't THAT bad.  XP

unkwon, why not get a PC and a MAC, then you can experience both of best worlds? Hehe. Most hassle free solution, alongside the VirtualPC one. What type of Mac do you have?
