I am trying to play Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 on my PowerPC. I have both the original disc, and the expansion pack disc. I have looked around for ports for it, but none of them work on my computer, because they weren't made for the PPC architecture. Is there any hope for me playing this game on my mac?

My Mac OS X Version:
OSX Leopard (10.5.8)

My Mac Model, GPU & CPU:
Processor: PowerPC G4
Graphics: GeForce4 MX

There is no PPC version of the game.

There are version of railroad tycoon I and II for PPC.

Oh. Should I take this to porting requests, or is there no chance for me playing this game on my PPC?

Actually, I recently found out about Q, which is a Windows virtual machine for PowerPC. Maybe I can play RCT throught that.

OK. I got it to work properly using a program called Virtual PC. If anyone is reading this and is trying to found out how to play old windows games on their PPC, just make a reply and I'll tell you how.
