Some games like "sin" have way more issues in classic, but beside my sin-version there exists an OSX-Version that I don't have yet and should run fine with 10.3.9

I already knew that page and tested "macglide", but I am not fully satisfied.
The Videos do not play correct and the game is not as smooth as it is on a OS9 machine,
but it's OK. What settings should be tweaked?

I said some years ago "LinuxGaming is DEAD" and moved from Linux to the Mac.
Now "actual MacGaming is near DEAD" but I changed my setup to the old and
glorious Apple2(gs)/68K and PPC days...now have more stuff to play then I could
(for YEARS!)

Macintosh Retro-Gaming is PRETTY-NICE!

I did some further testing. Currently I am using a dual setup with MorphOS beside 10.3.9 (G4-MINI/32MB).
So I can watch a lot of Amiga-PPC-Demos that do not need special "gfx-chip-calls".

I did some further testing:

- JediKnight II
- JediKnight III

Both games rune fine in 1024x768@32Bit. I installed the "ultimate-bloodpatch" to JK2 and the "dismemberment-patch" to JK3.
These games have fantastic textures. I am able to go for "high", "extra" seems to be for 64MB-Vram and more. If I can get an
silent update g4 with 64MB Vram I will test this option.

I am not quite sure how to play they best. Updating to the last PPC Version and then no-cd upgrade, or using the latest UB with
no-cd upgrade. I have the originals here, but I HATE changing the CD-Roms in order to play if there is nothing read from the CD
beside the copy-protection. But that's another story.

Doomsday Engine also runs quite well (Doom1, Doom2, Heretic1, Hexen1). I have the upgrades for the textures, the music and the models,
but it looks better in original to me.

Another fantastic game is RedFaction. It's an OS9 title, but Version 1.2 has the OSX binary. It looks great and runs perfect on the G4 mini.

AVP1 runs quite well on the G4-Mini, AVP2 does not start on 10.4. I'll have to check out, why it refuses to start.
