    I know this has been discussed elsewhere on the forum but I cannot complete the instructions because I seem to be missing a file. I know the DVD runs because I've run it on a windows computer, but want to be able to play it on my own Mac. I've been trying to follow Heimdall's instructions (thank you) but when it comes to copying the following:
    *If you are running Mac OS 8.x or 9.x, "Myst III Exile for Mac OS 8-9"
    ................*If you are running Mac OS 10.x, "Myst III Exile for Mac OS X"

    I don't seem to have one of those files.

    Please help me!!!

    I am running a MacBook - Mac OS X v10.5.6 with the following hardware
    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.1 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 800 MHz
    Sudden Motion Sensor:
    State: Enabled

    and my version of Myst is the 2001 original one.

    I have coped the following files into the Myst III folder:
    Readme Mac UK

    I already have Quicktime and adobe. I'm not sure what else to do - when I put the DVD in the drive it still comes up with the error message about access, and if I click on the file you sent me (which I presume I'm supposed to use to open the game from the hard drive???) it just opens a text box with lots of characters in it.

    I'm sure I'm being stupid but I don't know what else to do!

    Thanks again

    1. Delete the following files:
    M3.exe -> That's for the PC version
    m3patch122_mac.sit -> that's for the os9 version

    2. Decompress the M3OSX1.sit file

    thank you! Now I can get the game to open but when I try to start a new game it says "insert the Myst III: Exile DVD", even when I have the DVD in the drive already, or if I put it in at that point. Sorry for being so helpless....

    - rename the "Data" folder to "data"
    - create a folder named "Exile DVD" and put the "data" folder in it.

    The updated Myst III: Exile for Mac OS X was designed to run on a PowerPC under Panther and Tiger. Are you sure it will run under Leopard?
