Hacks for Prince of Persia 1 (Mac version)
Here are some hacks for the Mac version of POP1 (saving/potion level/etc) - by Emma Kane.
Prince of Persia 1.0 on OS X
There are two ways to run PoP on OSX - one is to use Basilisk II, which will run in colour, the other is to use Minivmac - which has sound and is more stable, but uses a mac plus rom only so everything is in black and white.
Prince of Persia is a superb game. Its a lot like tombraider in terms of controls, it was well ahead of its time (1992), and is very playable today.
However, it was commercial software and as such is copy protected. In order to progress through the game you have to go to a room and pick one of 24 potions (a-z) to drink. Pick the wrong one and you're dead. The code to pick the right one comes up on the screen and you need the manual to figure out the fight potion. With me so far? So you need a copy of the manual to play much of the game. Or you need this image.
Or you need a copy of Resedit and the ability to use it to hack into your copy of POP as follows:
(the first one definitely works) The Potion Level never appears
patch for 1.0
CODE 2, offset 1F70
The Potion Level is passed over
patch for 1.0
1. delete existing Potion Level (level 12? 15?)
2. copy LEVL 1 to clipboard
3. change the ID and name of the existing LEVL 1 to that of Potion Level
4. paste back in LEVL 1
Get unlimited chances to find the right potion patch for 1.0
CODE 3, offset 55A6
allow editing of saved files
CODE 2, offset 15AC
The save file is in the following format, two bytes each:
1. minutes left
2. fraction of a minute out of $2D0 (max is $2CF)
â—¦ $F is potion level
â—¦ $E is last level or princess level
â—¦ $C and $D are level 12 part 1 and part 2 Jaffer level
â—¦ $1-$B is level 1 to 11
â—¦ $0 is the demo level
6. prizes (people killed, items obtained, big potions etc.)
7. how many times prince died
8. checksum (= $1B39 - min*$B - frac - level*$11 - potions*$25 - unknown*$C1 - prize*$17 - died*$D)

* Good Luck and let me know if you find any other games that work with the package. Stuffit expander is in one of the folders.
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.
