  1. If there are Mac gamers out there who don't already have a disk copy (since the Steam version is PC only for some reason), there is a new release for the Mac App Store for $9.99. Naturally I bought it (5th time) and wrote about it at Gear Diary. Hope all my old friends are doing well.
  2. I think you'd be better running Parallels and then grabbing Jedi Academy while Steam has the LucasArts mega-sale this week ...
  3. You can try to copy the disc to am image, which will tell you if it is a bad disc or not.
  4. I am assuming you are installing on Mac OS X (as opposed to Windows in Bootcamp)? Have you installed it before? While there is a universal binary patch that is for *after* the install ...
  5. Personally I just grabbed it on Steam so I no longer need to worry about the CD. Works great on my Win7-64 Alienware m11x R2.
  6. Well ... I ended up playing and my retro netbook review is up now at GearDiary.
  7. Have one of these coming in the mail very soon ... ... and if you are a rock music fan I definitely recommend this: ... especially since it is $5 for a limited time ...
  8. Oh sure, so do I ... but who wants to bother with DISKS anymore ?!?! What's next, pulling out your original floppy disk version of Dark Forces?!?
  9. The funny thing is that I am a sucker for replaying those games myself ... when I got the Alienware m11x one of the first things I did was re-install the whole Jedi Knight series from Steam ...
  10. Wow ... hard to believe you didn't play it ... I remember talking about it here and at Exchonetwork ... leXX, Stormie, etc ...
  11. Yep ... I checked all of my Mac and PC DD sites and none of them have it ... so I had to grab my CD's and reinstall it, and use a CD image ... The GOOD news? It runs *great* on the netbook - went to medium settings and it is smooth as silk! w00t!
  12. Does anyone know if there was ever a Digital Download release? Prefer gaming on my Alienware m11x ... no DVD drive ...
  13. As I noted here: Over at GearDiary.com I have a series called 'The Netbook Gamer'. Recently I stepped through the entire Kyle Katarn series on my Lenovo s10 netbook to review for the series: Dark Forces Jedi Knight Mysteries of the Sith Jedi Knight II Jedi Academy The articles look at the games through a historical lens, serving as content reviews, retrospectives, as well as technical reviews regarding running on a low-end netbook. Enjoy!
  14. Absolutely ... don't know if anyone has caught any of my Netbook gamer series for Gear Diary (if not, here is Jedi Knight, Mysteries of the Sith and JKII ... with both Jedi Academy and Dark Forces coming soon ) ... but I love portable gaming and look to the m11x to expand that even further ...
