'PowerPC application no longer supported' error

With the release of OSX 10.7, Apple discontinued support of a program called Rosetta.  Rosetta allowed for older PowerPC processor developed games to run on newer Intel Macs.  Running their respective installers on newer Macs will display the 'PowerPC application no longer supported' error or will result in crashing.


Since Aspyr has been around for quite a long time, we have released a bunch of games in the past that we no longer have the licensing rights to update.  This also applies to all of our .dmg digital distribution titles:

The list below is most of the titles that are not supported on OSX 10.7 or newer:
