SheepShaver UB build 06-11-2010 for MacOSX 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6.
In Snow Leopard it can run in 64-bit mode on 64-bit capable Intel Macs.
Compiled from CVS 06-11-2010.http://www.xs4all.nl/~ronaldpr/sheepsha ... 101106.zip
If you have an existing SheepShaver setup, you can simply replace the application with the new application.
If you set up SheepShaver for the first time, follow the instruction in the Setup Guide (link also included in the download):http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/she ... os_x_setup
This build supports self contained SheepShaver virtual machine bundles with extension .sheepvm. The manual does not yet contain information about how to setup and use the virtual machines. You can read about the virtual machines and about the development of the related SheepShaverLauncher in this thread:viewtopic.php?t=5754
After setting up SheepShaver successfully, please also study the remaining chapters of the setup manual. Many support questions in the forum are already answered there:http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/she ... heepshaver
When you run SheepShaver in full-screen mode in standard setup, the built-in preferences editor cannot be used. See this section of the setup manual about how you can return to window mode:http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/she ... creen_mode
There are a a number of issues with SheepShaver running in 64-bit mode:
- The 'hardware cursor' is not supported, only the 'software cursor' is used. As a result, you will see the MacOS cursor stay at the border of the SheepShaver window when you move the MacOSX cursor outside the window. Make sure you use the setting "Dynamic" for the refresh rate in Audio/Video tab of SheepShaver preferences for smooth movements of the software cursor inside SheepShaver.
- Copying text between the emulated machine and the host system does not work.
- SheepShaver may crash using some applications. (On my system SheepShaver in 64-bit mode will consistently crash when iCab is launched in the emulated machine.)
- After minimizing and again maximizing the SheepShaver window, colors will not be displayed correctly. You can force the MacOS screen to be redrawn by switching color depths in Monitors control panel in MacOS.
If you encounter problems while running SheepShaver in 64-bit mode, set SheepShaver to run in 32-bit mode using the checkbox in Finder Info on SheepShaver.
