So I downloaded Cave Story, and I have to say that I absolutely love the game. That said, I have one major problem with it--it keeps crashing on me! This usually happens after I die or I go through a door, but occasionally it's happened while I'm just walking through a level or on the start screen. It doesn't seem to be affecting anything else, and as long as I save frequently I can continue playing. Is there something simple I'm overlooking that could fix this? I've got a Mac with an Intel chip.

Thank you!

No, the version for the PowerPC Processor, not the Intel one.
They're different in some aspects, it's like x81 tech vs. x69 tech or something like that. i dunno ^^;

Oh. I didn't realize there was a difference... especially since there's nothing in the download that says "If you're using an Intel machine this isn't going to work right." ^^; Is the patch you mentioned on the tribute site? And will it affect my current game?

You need to download the Universal Binary in the link I provided up there with the word "DONGS". Dunno if the patch works for it. You'll lose your save, but gain a no-crash version.

And who's to say it's a bad thing to be forced to play the game again? ;)

Is that what that was? I wondered. ^_^ Thank you!
