Okay, so I am not completely new to Mac's, but have been using them for around 3-4 years (but only in a graphic arts environment). So, I got a little nostalgic for some games that I grew up for, and when I bought them off of e-bay, and tried to load them on my 12" Powerbook G4 (1.33ghz, 1gig ram), it loads up the classic "window", and the game kinda starts, but all I then get is a distorted view of the window, the colour seems very off, and I can't really see the game, it is the shadows of it, and I see my OS X desktop in the background. It is really weird... so the games that I am trying to load are, "Sam & Max, Hit the Road", "Day of the Tentacle", and "Full Throttle".. Lol, I know they are horrid games, but I really want to be able to play these, and I don't know if they will even work on my Powerbook since they are super old, and they were originally designed for OS 8.X. I have played with colour and resolution settings, and still no go.. So, any help would seriously be appreciated..

It's possible that they simply won't work in Classic. If other Classic apps work just fine, I'd say this is likely the root of your problem. How to fix? You cannot, sadly.
