    Are you running it under OS 10? If so which version. There were some issues with the elpha engine.

    Try going to macintoshgarden.org and downloading all the marathons. Also check out the prequal of pathways into darkness. As far as I know this is a legal site. They have emulators and downloads for dead games.
