Hey. I've recently set up SheepShaver in an attempt to play Ferazel's Wand and am having some framerate issues. I've read up on the gamma fade issues and also FerazelX's problems mentioned earlier in this thread. I'm not having any issues with the fades, but in-game the frame rate is discouragingly slow. Everything in the startup screen and menus runs fine, but in actual gameplay it's choppy.
I'm running SheepShaver in Mountain Lion with OS 8.1 installed. QuickTime 4.1.2 is installed. I've allowed 512MB of RAM for SheepShaver and use all the same settings mentioned here:
Graphics: High Detail
Resolution Switching, Reuse saved game files, Reduce frame rate, and Allow background tasks are all unchecked.
InputSprocket is enabled under controls.
Sound Effects and Music are both checked.
