GameRanger To End Mac OS 9 Support
9:57 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story
In a move that seems long overdue, GameRanger has announced the end of booting the GameRanger client on Mac OS 9 systems sometime later this year. On the other hand, GameRanger will continue to support games running under Mac OS X's Classic emulation environment. Furthermore, remaining Mac OS 9 users who wish to continue with GameRanger are urged to update to Mac OS X.

Mac OS 9 Support to be DiscontinuedPlease click on the links below to learn more information.
Mar 2001: Apple released the first version of Mac OS X.
Dec 2001: Apple released the last version of Mac OS 9.
May 2002: Apple announced that Mac OS 9 development had ended.
Four years later in 2006, GameRanger will end support for booting in Mac OS 9.
Games will continue to be supported in the Classic environment, but GameRanger itself will only run natively in Mac OS X. This is an essential and necessary step in moving forward to support the Intel-based Macintoshes.
The exact date has not yet been set, but this notice serves as a warning to any remaining Mac OS 9 users that they will need to upgrade to Mac OS X to continue using GameRanger.
