Raider III - The Lost Artifact on a Mac ?
Before this expansion came out for the
Mac, the only way to play it was to haxx0r a pc version of the
expansion. Here are my observations on the rather peculiar experience
Ok..well, I followed Jamaica's instructions,
and this is what I came up with. The game works amazingly well,
actually, if you don't mind all the wierd sounds. When Lara fell
and broke her neck, to me it sounded like she'd fallen in the water,
and when you drop into the water it sounds like you're hitting
the ground. Her voice also seems to have dropped an octave or two
in some instances, like when she pulled a lever. Most of her walking
sounds were still fine, as were her gun sounds. Most of the animal
sounds were alright as well, although so far that's really only
been tested with the crows.
The music worked
perfectly, although it does still sound as if you are in India.
The 'event' music (such as when something scary is about to happen,
etc) was still perfectly in place, so the sound doesn't completele
spoil the whole thing. You can turn the sound off, but it's rather
unnerving not being able to hear when the bad guys are nears
you, even if they sound more like baboons than guys in uniforms
in this case.
I would recommend
keeping a spare version of the JUNGLE.TR2 file around, just to
save you reinstalling the entire game when you wanted to revert
to the proper levels. I haven't reached the end of the level
yet, so I have no idea what will happen there, but to my great
surprise there was absolutely no problem saving or loading games
in the level whatsoever - no crashes or anything ! Until further
updates, enjoy the screenshots from my mac, and look forward
to hopefully having some Peculiar Screenshots from this little
experiment. Keep an eye on the news for more details.
