Links Pro for MacOS iBook and Mac OS 8 or 9 – Golf

September 1, 2018

I’ve been playing LinksPro on my Performa 6214CD Mac (OS 8.50 for some time. That version is from 3.5″ disks. I just recently loaded, via a CD version, LinksPro on to my Clamshell iBook (OS 9.2.2). It runs great.

Here are some pictures. Plus some peculiarities I’ve run into. Here’s link to all courses for Links Pro and LinksLS plus games themselves.

Added these 5 courses no problem. Each has it’s own installer.

Recently acquired the Firestone course. It came on 3.5″ disks and the iBook would not recognize the 2nd 3.5 Disk. I tried 3 different usb 3.5 external drives. None worked. However, there was no issue installing on my Performa 6214CD Mac running MacOS 8.5.

So, what I did was copy the installed Firestone course file and the Firestone Links Extra file from the Performa to 1.44 HD 3.5 disks. Then I copied these to the respective folders on the iBook. BINGO! Firestone now runs on my iBook.
