Default Hello! First Post And I Need Help - 03-11-2009, 02:56 AM

I am trying to get alice 2.0.7 to work on my PPC iMac G5 Tiger 10.4.11 OSX desktop computer. It was working a while ago, maybe last week, now the icon is stationary instead of bouncing around, but after that nothing happens. How can I fix this, please I need help

Also is there a magic carpet object for alice? I could really use one

And yes in case you were wondering it does work on an Intel Mac but I am not allowed to use it. I need it on my PPC

I'm afraid that reflects the very small number of people actually successfully running Alice on OSX with a PPC. I'd try appealing the ruling that you can't use an "Intel Mac" on the basis that you can't find anyone to help with the Power PC version (I assume that is what you mean by PPC).

I'm not a Mac person myself - but I believe the latest OSX version was released after Apple made the switch to Intel hardware - so the fact that there are problems with it on a PPC isn't all that surprising.

Default 2.2 / 2.0 on OSX - 09-01-2010, 08:37 AM

I've successfully run Alice 2.0 with few probs on the PPC laptops for my class. I have been trying to get the latest build of 2.2 running on them. It "runs" but is so slow that it's basically unresponsive. It's a bit strange in that I've got 40 identical laptops and I load the same disk image on all 40. Some run ok - semi-usable and some are simply unresponsive. Never could figure that out.

2.0 is ok except for the occasional red screen of death.
