    Thanks again Xzit,

    This time for all of those links. I just downloaded all of them, even though I think I had some of them already downloaded on another computer.

    I am on my 17" 1.67GHz G4 PowerBook at the moment, and this is the computer that I run MorphOS on most often over the last 5 months (using 3.0 beta of course).

    I do want to begin using my G4 PowerMac more soon, because I have new components to install in my MDD PowerMac (including my re-flashed Radeon 8500 & single 1.25GHz G4 CPU module w/Copper heat sink that I want to overclock to 1.5GHz), and want to test them under MorphOS2.7 ASAP.

    I will try some of these games out later today/tonight and tomorrow.

    Great suggestions! I also want to play more games in future, but there were so many offers available on various sites that I had no clue what I should buy. This is really helpful! It's like finding the best flower delivery. If you've found a reliable service you should stay with it and use it often and take the advantages!

    Much appreciated list. Anyone know if there's more recent ports of UFO AI and Wesnoth out there?

    They've both advanced a few versions since the ones here. For Wesnoth its not really a big deal, but with UFO AI, there's quite a bit of usability added with each new version.


    Pleasantly surprised to see Gish and Aquaria here. I'll have to get my humble bundle downloads again, and extract the game data.

    There are some very good suggestions here. How many are playable without hardware acceleration, however? I was a bit surprised to find that even ScummVM wouldn't start on my Powerbook. So far I've found AmiChess, BoxIkon and FPSE that work. Any suggestions for games that will keep me going till 3D is supported on the Powerbooks?

    Is there a more recent port, latest is 2.4. Would like to give it a try eventhough I doubt it will work on Macmini with 512mb of ram and 32mb videomem

    I'm hijacking this thread to ask a few games related questions.

    First, I'm trying to install Wipeout 2097 (Amiga version) on my G5, but the installer doesn't work. So how do I install it manually?

    Second, I'm trying to get Quake 1 or 2 to work, but no matter how I try the game just keeps crashing after load. I have tried both Yamagi port and the other, older one I can find on MorphOS files (I also use 32 bit to make sure it works). I have tried several ways to copy the game files, including installing it on Windows first (which you have to do to get Homeworld working).

    Halp! :D

    Does the G5 use R300 cards? I think I'm using a Radeon 9600. Does that use R300?

    @bash64

    For me it just freezes after loading it. I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong.

    @Yasu:
    I have a problem with Quake 1 with high res textures on Pmac MDD wich load, allows to start but when you try to select a level, freezes. The same game on a PMac G5 works flawless. The G4 has ATI Radeon 9250 128 MB graphic card and G5 Ati Radeon 9650 256 MB. In my case could be graphic card memory due to high res graphic (it worked on G4 before and even on the Pegasos with same g card) but maybe not. I will test Quake II and I will report. With Quake III I hadn't any problem.

    Thanks! The problem I seem to have is that it tries to load files that aren't in the right place. But (as usual) the manual isn't helpful here when I try to figure out what stuff I actually need installed and where. I installed the game on Windows and copyied the extracted version to MOS. Guess I'm doing it wrong again :)

    Isn't Quake abandonware? If so, wouldn't it be a good idea to include the needed files with the launchers? Or at least the demo version?

    I guess Quake is abandonware but I'm not sure though I found this:
    http://abandongames.com/games.php?gameid=2763
    and many more. I purchased the Amiga conversion some years ago and I installed from cd and when I copied the game on the Pegasos I used FuhQuake to start the game because original starter crashed system. Unfortunately now I'm not at home and so I can't say wich directories and files are inside my Quake installation... I will be able to report this tomorrow.
    Just in case you need FuhQuake:

    Sadly, I have never been able to get Gish to work on no Mos nor AROS system. Well, at least not the demo. Which is very sad since I really want this game.

    Is there any legal problems when creating fully working versions of abandonware games that makes it necessary to only release the MOS executables? I'm having a really hard time to get Quake (any of them), RtCF and other patched PC games. I would love to see a torrent of all these (abandonware/non-commercial) games mentioned ready to be runned out of the box. But only if it's not technically illegal.

    Yes, there is. Abandonware is a concept that doesn't exist in legal terms. See:

    I thought that ID software indeed released some of there games for free eventually. Like Doom and Quake. How about those situations?
