E-Maculation: All About Macintosh Emulation

(Site updated May 1, 2023)


E-Maculation is dedicated to emulation of the classic Macintosh computer in MacOSX/macOS, Windows and Linux. This is possible through the use of emulators such as SheepShaver, Basilisk II, Mini vMac, Qemu and PearPC.


We host a number of setup guides:

  • To emulate a G4 PowerPC-processor based Macintosh and install up to Mac OS 9.0.4, read about setting up SheepShaver for Windows, MacOSX/macOS, or Linux.
  • To read about emulating an older Apple machine with an 68xxx processor, try our guides to setting up Basilisk II.
  • To emulate an even older Macintosh (a Mac Plus running System 6), check out our guide to setting up Mini vMac.
  • To run Mac OS 7.1 to 8.1, 9.0.4 to 10.5 or A/UX 3.0.1 to 3.1 in Windows or MacOS, see our guides about running Qemu.

We also host a number of guides dealing with specific issues.
