I saw mention in another post that one could use the game files from the Mac port on Windows. I have the opposite issue, and was wondering if anyone could help.
I purchased the Windows version of Darwinia a while back, and now I want to play it on my Mac. Now, I know I could just run it in Windows mode (it's an Intel Mac), but where's the fun in that?
I tried copying "main.dat" and "sounds.dat" from the PC CD-ROM into the Mac Darwinia package, replacing the Mac files. When I try to launch the Mac app, I get the following error: "Failed to open mouse cursor resource icons/mouse_selection.bmp"
Is this something I can work around? Is what I'm trying to do even possible? Will the Mac version recognize this as the full version of the game, or will the lack of an Ambrosia registration prevent the game from running?
Thanks for your help.
