Got a new computer... an iMac desktop. I've never had a Mac before. Anything unusual I need to know before installing and playing ET on it? I hope it's straightforward and no biggie...

Original ET won't work on your new iMac.

 

You will need to use et-legacy, to bad I couldn't find a working download link. Maybe they will fix it soon, check this forum for info on a download link:

The second option you have is to run Wineskin, install the et-windows version, and play that. Good is compatibility, bad is probably performance - but it could be all fine.

Third option, is to install windows itself .. lol. Which honestly I recommend, get some external harddisk, get some windows 8, install and use it only to play ET or some other special windows games.

Someone replied with some links..

 

This should be the one you need:

http://mirror.etlega...71a-osx-x86.dmg

 

Apart of that, you still need to install it; I don't know if there is some automatic installer bundled..

In any case the thing is, original ET cannot be bundled with et legacy (legal issues). So you will still have to download and "install/extract" original et, and put that thing on top; maybe there is some kind of installer doing that for you.

 

I suggest you ask them directly, either in that topic I linked from splashdamage, or find there IRC.
