The above says it all. Can I install my windows packs on my Mac system? I have six computers here, but the mac I own is now my primary (It's a Mac Pro with a 30 screen). I wanted to see what it looks like in 2560x1600. Can I get my windows board packs as Mac versions?

Well, you can actually do this yourself, if you can transfer files from your PC to your Mac.

Install the Rival Ball Mac Demo. Since it's an old game meant for OS 9, it's not a package like modern OS X apps, it's just a .sit file that decompresses to a folder with the game inside as well all the data files.

Now, if you copy the Boards folder from C:\Program Files\LDA Games\DX-Ball 2 from a Windows machine to the Rival Ball folder on your Mac, the game should recognize it.

Ok, I'm good with that. I just didn't think of that because I know you can't do it between windows computers. Thanks.
