Re: Disappointing: Oxyd 1 under MacOS X 10.4. "Tiger"
I have tried the same thing. Under Mac OS 10.3.9 everything works
just fine in Classic. All Oxyd games run perfectly. But with 10.4
and classic Oxyd 1 runs very slow... The marble is nearly
uncontrollable. I have no problems with the game freezing - just
that it runs so slow.
The 10.3.9 computer is a QS2002 800MHz - Oxyd works 100%
The 10.4 computer is a brand new Mac Mini 1.42GHz - big problems
