Please help! QtEMU on Windows 10 (64-bit) to run Mac OS 9.2.

Hello everyone, long time no post! Background: I'm making somewhat of a return to the Mac emulation scene, after more than a decade (give or take a few years). Would like to use QEMU to see how my new custom gaming PC would handle emulating Mac OS 9.2.2. I have mostly given up on Sheepshaver, since ...

Re: Requires System Version 7.5.5 or Later

How large is your "OS 9" volume? I'm betting that the game is trying to create that "scratch file" onto your "OS 9" volume by default... I doubt there's any way to change this behavior. Also, can you verify if the newly mounted "Star Wars Droidworks" image is ...

NOTE: I don't have this game, so I've never actually tried it in SheepShaver. However, i've adapted the following instructions provided by a certain Macintosh "abandonware" site. So, follow it at your own risk... (I claim no responsibility) . If you have the original CD-ROM of that game, ...

Ah, i see. Well, if it isn't meant to be in the official source code, then what about the bundled SheepShaverGUI? I can't recall who wrote that handy little "front-end", but couldn't that executable be modified/re-written to play a user-defined sound file in the background (without the nee...

Re: SheepShaver for Windows

Hey Ashlee, I think these 7 questions ought to get you sufficiently oriented and on your way to getting Sheepshaver on your computer, i think. 1) What kind of computer do you use currently? Mac or a Windows PC? 2) If it's a Mac, is it an Intel-based Mac? (Did you buy it after 2006?) 3) If it's a Win...

Re: 256 color, but Greyscale?

Depending on your version of the installed Mac OS, go into your Control Panels, select either "Monitors" or "Monitors and Sound", and there should be a radio button (circular button) that lets you pick grayscale or color.

Re: Darling Project: Run OS X Binaries in Linux

Interesting.

I'm assuming they REALLY meant Intel-OSX binaries on an Intel-Linux host. I wish they made that distinction/clarification....... because what I was *really* hoping for was to run OSX/PPC binaries on a Linux/PPC host.

I don't know if you're old enough to remember the old "Star Trek project" from the very early 1990's... and while it's already been done, it was ultimately cancelled.

Re: Adjusting Processor Speed

Without getting too technical, there is simply no way to make SS (SheepShaver) run faster unless somebody gets down, into the source code to make more optimizations or unless the end-user (you) runs SS on faster hardware. And even if you run SheepShaver on faster hardware, it will actually run faste...

You might be able to add in a USB card (PCI) and then just transfer everything to a high-capacity USB stick (thumb drive).

This is going to sound a bit dumb... but, by any chance, is there a build of SheepShaver for PPC distros of Linux out there somewhere? I, for one, would jump at the idea of being able to use SheepShaver on my iMac G3, running MintPPC 11.
