I am glad to announce that I finished the first beta of my preferences editor I decided to call Medusa (lots of snakes... basilisk... =D Ah forget it).
It is meant to work with Basilisk II only, but I am developing a similar behaviour to allow it to work with Sheepshaver in a near future.
Some of the features:
- User-friendly, easy-to-use interface;
- Allows to manage more than one virtual machine (VM);
- Allows to manage different disk images and combine in any VM;
- Allows to manage different ROM files and change in the VMs;
- Works with any version of Basilisk II, given its path;
- 100% cocoa.
It was compiled in a Snow Leopard System 10.6.8, XCode 4.2, to both 32-bit and 64-bit.
It was tested in the same environment, mainly 64-bit.
Remember: this is a beta and it can misbehave and is not complete. I decided to work with the basics only (by now), but I intend to increase the functionality with the time.
Back-up your preferences file before venturing forth, Medusa will change it every time a virtual machine starts.
- The beta can be downloaded here:https://github.com/downloads/sentient06 ... %201b1.zip
Note: It is recommended to be installed in the applications folder to be used as any other application.
- Delete the application file.
- Go to ~/Library/ and delete the folder called "Medusa".
Note: if you want to keep the preferences, do not delete the last one. It is Medusa's database.

I would be glad with feedbacks and suggestions. This is only the beginning.
Hope you enjoy.
