The game has some flying car in a Cyberpunk-like future in a dark alleyway. [..] this sleek looking car landed at night near an alleyway next to some tall buildings. I think the door opens and you either get out or get in.

You can watch the beginning of Spaceship Warlock and Jump Raven on YouTube-- that might help you remember. The alley sounds more like Warlock, but I don't think the game shows you the car landing. That sounds more like Jump Raven. (Maybe you are remembering parts of both?)

Also note that it's easy to put the iTunes and iPhoto media libraries on an external disk. It's a configuration setting so you don't need to symlink.

Just remember to include that external in backups.

My Mac Pro 2008 is (holds up both hands with fingers extended) THIS many years old. I upgraded the video card twice. So I'm holding out for the next Mac Pro, and if it lasts 8-10 years it will have been well worth the expense. But if it is ARM or starts at $5000 then I'll probably get a Mini with eGPU instead.

I like the idea of making a Hackintosh, but I just don't have the patience at this time of life.

Unfortunately only 32-bit.

Thanks for the tip. I guess I'll add it to my list of 32-bit games I'm trying to play/replay in the next 6 months.

Introversion yes? I'm a big fan of Darwinia and Uplink, though better hacker style games exist today, I lost countless hours to that one.
Yep. I never played Uplink, oddly enough.. Introversion isn't completely folded the way Ambrosia seems to be, but they are getting there.

GoG has a decent Mac selection, but many things remain PC only despite having Mac versions in the past.
Yes, and unless a 64-bit DOS wrapper comes along, the pickings are going to be even slimmer once Mac goes 64-bit only.
