PoP Macintosh Total Pack

POP MAC Total Pack for PC - contains PoP1, PoP2, tools, editors and other games with Basilisk II system (8.0).

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/7u3dia2003ln2tq/macintosh_package.rar (80.51 MB)


1) Download;
2) Extract;
3) Open up the Macintosh Package folder;
4) Open up "BasiliskIIGUI.exe" (** Notice the file name it is NOT "BasiliskII.exe"**);
5) Click on the "RUN[F1]" button in the bottom right hand corner;
6) Click ok on the cd rom error (if you get an error);
7) The emulator should start.
8) The icon for the HD is in the top right hand corner

Regarding PopMap: You have to double click on popmap and then go to file-open and navigate to the pop1 folder where you will find the prince icon. Click on open and it will bring up a list of levels in the game to chose from where you can then edit the level. I guess you should make a copy of the game first so you can preserve the original levels. And PopMap works fine: when you double click on popmac it will look like it disappears, but in reality what happens is the File/Edit etc.. menu items at the top change to be used with the popmap program and that is when you go to file open. and select the pop icon. It does this for many mac applications, I think that is just the way that system 8 works, but I assure you it is there. The same thing happens when you double click on stuffit expander, everything disappears and you have to go to file/ expand.

PoP OverAll

Written by hbzlmx (forum topic) : PoP OverAll is a tool to hack DOSBox to change or modify the output of PoP1 and PoP2 games with all their versions. Screenshots PoP1 - PoP2. Version 1.1 should include background effects.

Download (version 1.0 - August 2013): This is the first release where I tried to change the angle of view inside the games, in other words making a horizontal flipping to the game outputs. The key controls are also adjusted to play perfectly the games. The main bug is that texts inside cutscenes are also horizontally flipped (not lower texts inside games themselves) : PoP_Overall.exe

PoP1 Studio

PoP1 Studio contains a library/database for different resources of Original Prince of Persia (PoP1) in addition to compose a game set from variable resources and play it.

Full midis can be found here: http://poplegacy.planets.gamespy.com/PoP1MusicSNES.php. However, a few which are missing from the list here (the little ditties you hear when you drink the small/big potions, defeat an enemy, complete the level, find your sword, etc.) can be downloaded from here: http://www.soundupload.com/search.php?tag=prince+of+persia.

If you want to extract the midis: First use SNES9x to grab each spc file from the sound test (hold start, press select). Then through Audio Overload, export them to wav files. You can try to get all the sound effects too, but it's more involved than that. Also, SNESGT emulator can dump the music in .spc format. You can use a special plugin to listen to SNES tracks in Winamp. It's called SPCAmp. There is a special spc player too (good alternative).

EDIT: FULL SNES MIDIS .spc files can be found on a site called http://www.snesmusic.org.
