  Thank you, Jesus :-) (I know its Hesus, but for the sake of all Christians, it sounds good :-)
 
  While its interesting to see titles that have "not make it to Amiga era" (as MacOS Classic continued to live on some more), my own excuse for Fusion is early productivity software otherwise unvail to AmigaOS - such as PhotoShop 4, Illustrator etc. Bringing fast emulation of MacOS 9 could bump it to very satisfactory Photoshop 7.

Os9 would be interesting, having said that that, it is fully ppc. The last 68k MacOS was 8.1 (and if you count 8.5 that has a 68k booter, and the rest ppc being written only for ppc accelerator cards in 68k machines)
Unfortunately MacOS 8.1-68k missed out on the cool features of 8.1-ppc eg ufs and hfs+ .
I hope I can run fusion/MacOS on v4 and take advantage of larger resolution and video speed, better sound etc..... Willing to pay for updated fusion drivers etc.
Nothing beats 68k Amiga with fs support, USB, and power+speed. :)

Which videomode do you use in Fusion? p96directXL does not work here. Thanks

I'm trying to get this running with a similar setup but the game crashes with a Type 3 error (sometimes it says "Numeric Overflow") as soon I use the mouse or try to turn left or right with the keyboard at the start of the game. Any ideas?

Try using Shapeshifter instead AFAIK Fusion is no longer directly supported by team as it has been pulled from the internet and is no longer available for purchase or download. I still have my disk copy that I have used all these years.
