So I downloaded Avernum 3 and it's really cool, but 1 and 2 are for classic only!
any chance these are going to be carbonized?

Almost certainly not. Jeff is generally more interested in making new games than maintaining old ones.

Besides, I think A1 and A2 run better in Classic than A3 does in OS X. When he made A3 OS X native, it ran at about a third its previous speed on my machine.

A3 uses a different game engine. It also runs a good deal slower on Windows. :/

A2 runs at a steady pace on my (very ancient) Compaq Presario 1230. A3 takes about ten seconds for the blood-spatter animation to play when you hit someone.

i agree, a3 definately is slower.
however, if you quit everything else, close all windows and use the suggested monitor settings, it works quite well.
