HELP - "Sound Error 2" on Launch of Avernum 5 Demo in Tech Support

No audio on a .avi playback is most likely due to a missing codec, not a sound problem. I don't know how to fix your Spiderweb games problem, but Perian should solve your video playback issue.

Edit: I don't think this helps you any, but I have the exact same system that you do (with the exception of the OS. I'm running 10.5.1), and I haven't had any problems.

Actually transferring between two computers with the same OS is quite easy. In Windows, just copy the whole game. In OS X, just copy the Preferences file in your user library.

I've done some more looking into this problem on my MacBook Pro, and it turns out that whatever Apple did to Rosetta that enables the older Spidweb games to run at full speed also affected the older PPC only apps in BoA, A4, G4, and N:R. So, you can run the games just fine with the older app instead of the universal binary. It seems sort of backwards, but it works just fine, since it is only the Intel apps that have the weird lines.

Hero of old spell in Nethergate

Back in the day, Hero of Old was probably the most powerful and useful spell in Nethergate. It's so disappointing how much Jeff nerfed it in N:R.

It happens in N:R and BoA too. It appears to be a problem only for Intel apps though. The original Avernum games run fine. In fact, they run better than they have since the 10.4.9 update made them run slowly.

I just tested the link myself. It works. If you don't have an AIM client installed, then you probably would get a 404. If you're on a Mac, I would suggest Adium. On a Windows or Linux box, use Pidgin.
