Default old mac game

(I copied this from the PC Gaming forums cause I wasn't sure in which forum it'd be more likely to get a response..it's about gaming, but its more of a technical question, so I can see it going here too)

Not that long ago I was looking through some old cds and found an old, old mac game ('93) that I never could figure out as a kid, and I was thinking I'd like to give it another try, but we only have PCs in my house now...is there any way for me to get around both the platform and the too-new-software issue? Currently my Windows XP system doesn't even recognize that theres anything on the cd..

thanks,
Alugarde

I have an Mac/Apple Emulator

This is a floppy given to me by my High School Teacher. It's a self extracting exe file that will burn an "image" to a empty floppy in a rar file.


Apple II / Apple II+

It's a cd game, though...if I make an image of the cd, will the program be able to run it, or will it be way too big?

download the file and put it on a floppy

you now have a virtual OS which you can run your cd from.
