About Architecture

  • PowerPC (PPC)
The game has been coded for a PowerPC processor. If no Universal Binary patch is available, it is still usually possible to run the game on a Mac with an Intel Processor through Rosetta but as with other means of emulation, performance is usually reduced. The higher clock speeds of the newer Intel processors can offset this lost of performance. Consult the Rosetta Performance column in the table to know how the game performs through Rosetta.
  • Universal Binary (UB)
The game has either been coded as a Universal Binary or a patch can been made available to update the game to a Universal Binary. A Universal binary game will normally run at native speed on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.
  • Intel
The game has been coded for a Intel processor. It will run at native speed on Intel processor equipped Macs but won't run at all on a PowerPC Mac.
