    "Very well done."

    Version: Riven X 0.9.8

    Pros

    Worked flawlessly after finding a disk torrent, already hours into the fun.

    Cons

    Did not take my disks. Installation quit on disk 2. I was forced to get a torrent that worked without a problem.

    Summary

    Running Snow Leopard 1O.6.8. Disks didn't work, but after torrent it works flawlessly.

    "Thank you Tito Dal Canton, et al."

    Version: Riven X 0.9.8

    Pros

    Effortless installation. Works nearly without flaw on Mac OS 10.7 Lion. No sound glitches whatsoever.

    Cons

    The setup is problematic for those of us who do not have access to contrast adjustments, but I really did not need access to one with my iMac monitor. No menu available on full screen setting. On full screen the only keyboard shortcut that works, which I could find, is command Q to quit. Otherwise F3 or F4. I've only been using it for two days; I can't remember how I saved yesterday's game, but it's do able.

    Summary

    Rivin is a beautiful and often under-rated piece de resistance of the late 90's gaming era. Each frame is a work of art. More of a puzzle than an arcade game its images stuck with me for years. I was nevertheless reluctant to resurrect it on on any platform due to its labor intensive, nuanced installation protocols -- not to mention the glitches. Well, after years of absence I thought I'd give it a go once again only to find a sound error insurmountable. Thankfully, after hours spent surfing for an answer, I stumbled across this update on CNET. What a blessing it has been to rekindle this old work of art. I can only hope the original stills are intact, so that one day the the resolution may be upgraded as well. Well done Tito Dal Canton, et al. Well done.

    I don't know if the Debug did it, but I now have full keyboard shortcut access. Still no Mac menu, but you don't need it, and you might not want it interfering with the graphics. If I could increase my rating to five stars, I would. Tito is onto something here.

    Pros

    works very well on a macmini core2duo

    Cons

    no cons to mention

    Summary

    I was very surprised but and happy that Riven X accepts PC disks.
    For all PC folks who switched to Mac, know that you can use your PC disk for this hack and play the game on a mac now. Amazing!
