Many Macintosh titles are compatible with Pippin consoles, which run a modified version of Mac OS. Pippin authentication was initially a barrier to running third party games not distributed by Bandai. A shell such as PEASE or Macintosh on Pippin could be used to launch unauthenticated applications from another drive. Developer consoles and dongles do not check for authentication, but are rare. With the discovery of Apple's private key, a boot disc called Pippin Kickstart was devised to allow unauthenticated discs to be launched.
However, not all Macintosh games will run as-is on a Pippin console, and some are known to cause it to crash.
