I have a mid-2010 (Intel) MacBook Pro, and I’m nostalgic for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, which was released in the early 2000s (!). At some point there was a freely-downloadable Carbon version to allow people who already owned the game to play it under then-current versions of Mac OS X, but as far as I know there hasn’t been any development recently. Can anyone think of some way I might be able to get the game running again?
The Multiplayer is playable on Intel Macs with this binary: http://thilo.kickchat.com/efport-progress/bin/macosx/
Unfortunately I can't find something for the Single Player.
Edit: It is also just 32 bit and won't run on macOS 10.15 Catalina or later.
I was able to make the single player version of the game work on a Core Duo MacBook running Mac OS 10.4.11. The problem is if you try to save the game the entire computer would crash. The game crashes immediately when using the same computer on Mac OS 10.5. On a Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro running Mac OS 10.6 the game will load but crashes the entire system if you try to save a game.
I have two theories on how to play this game on a modern Mac.
- Download the playstation 2 version of the game and play it in an emulator.
- Buy the good old games version and try to play it using WINE.
