Macintosh OS 10.13.

Apple decided to exclude 32-bit programs in their latest system and only recognizes 64-bit.

The Fool and his Money was programmed using Director and Flash, which are 32-bit, and the game is 32-bit as well. And long story short, I cannot upgrade the game. Perhaps, someday, Mini vMac will make an emulator to run it once again.

Macintosh OS 10.12.

A mighty thank you to true believer, Russell Finn, who discovered this workaround.

“After pondering the situation, it occurred to me that your use of Director XTRAs in a side folder might be encountering a new security feature in Sierra called App Translocation. Basically the system quietly relocates the app before launch to avoid a potential problem as in the case of someone replacing one of your XTRAs with a piece of malware.

“One of the circumstances in which this feature is not activated is if the user has explicitly moves the application to a new location using the Finder.

“Hence I tried the following: after following your installation instructions, I dragged the The Fool and His Money application to the Desktop (holding down the Command key, to avoid making an alias), then dragged it back into the original folder.  After that I was able to double-click the application and have it run successfully.”

This step is now included in the Installation instructions.

Can I transfer saved games from The Teaser to The Game?

My MAC blocks the download because TFaHM is not “by a trusted developer.”

Hold down the CONTROL key when you download.

Then it asks if you are sure you want to open it. Press Yes.

I open the Game and get a series of errors. Or it won’t save my PassWord or my games.

Save your TFaHM folder in the correct location.

Put TFaHM-3-Mac folder into the Applications folder.

Put TFaHM-3-Win folder into the Program Files folder.

Keep The Fool and his Money.app/exe inside the TFaHM-3-Mac/Win folder.

Create a desktop Alias or Shortcut to the Game instead.

Also, keep the Saved Games folder & Xtras folder inside the TFaHM-3-Mac/Win folder.

PASSWORD is not accepted.

Your receipt e-mail contains a PassKey.zip attachment.

Copy this into your TFaHM-3-Mac/Win folder.

Then double-click it to unzip your PassKey.txt.

Do not open the PassKey.txt. This file must be closed during Installation.

Once in a blue moon, the PassKey.zip is corrupted in transmission.

HOTMAIL — My PassKey.zip doesn’t not work.

Hotmail shows the file as an attachment with Download underneath.

Below that there is a link that says Download as Zip — do not select it.

Select the Download option only.

I’m having difficulty downloading or unzipping the TFaHM-3-Mac/Win.zip.

Certain browsers want to automatically unzip a zip file as they download it — bad idea.

To prevent this, Control-Click the browser link (MAC) or Right-Click the browser link (WIN).

Then select “Save Link As...” from the pop-up menu.

Doing this will download the TFaHM-3-Mac/Win.zip without unzipping it.

Once downloaded, then unzip the file.

See Installation.

I’m down to two pieces out of place in ZACHARIAH and I can’t solve it.
