Re: Working on bin/cue support in SheepShaver

This is getting close to a pull request: Most CD audio features are implemented and work in Apple's CD Audio Player (except Shuffle) Most mixed-mode games seem to recognize both the data and play their audio Cases of No-CD, Multiple-CD, or anywhere in-between will work. If you have multiple audio c...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina

The issue appears solved. I posted the 26 July build as recommended build: https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=7360 I confirm that this latest build resolves the issue as reported in my initial post. I have tested it on all my systems and in Mojave and Catalina. Works perfect...

Re: Mac Wrapper Application

This is something that would be VERY useful. I've written AppleScript wrappers for SheepShaver and BasiliskII, but QEMU is beyond my abilities. We would be very glad to have a wrapped QEMU! I’ll second that. QEMU has a steep learning curve, so anything to make it a more user-friendly experience wou...

I don't know if the problem can be solved because it doesn't reproduce in my environment, but try the following code. https://github.com/kanjitalk755/macemu/tree/unlock_test I have not had time to try it in safe mode for a full crash report, but I am experiencing the same results as noted in my pre...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina

Just a thought. Did you try to launch SheepShaver full-screen after safe restart and/or safe login on the host? I tried that, and the freeze up occurred again. I used the key command to force quit SheepShaver and this time I got a dialog box with a crash report. The output is saved here: https://ww...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina

Could we be looking at a security model change on Apple's part, that doesn't show up for some of us due to how we've got our Gatekeeper preferences and extended attributes set? If that would be the cause, wouldn't it happen always for those who experience the issue? Users either see the issue never...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina

It has definitely crossed my mind that it is security related, as those were the predominant changes that affected app launching starting in Mojave and carrying forward into Catalina. Also, I mentioned earlier that this issue does not affect High Sierra or earlier. To recap, this is what I have in m...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina

On my 2019 iMac (with Mojave 10.14.6) it unfortunately still black screens and pinwheels as soon as I launch in full screen mode. Windowed mode works normally. When launching in full screen mode, if I am extremely quick to press control-return, it bypasses the freeze/pinwheel and takes it into windo...

I should note that a couple games I've tested work, but Warcraft I still refuses to play CD audio. I thought having playthrough enabled would change that. There must be something else going on, maybe in the way it's recognizing the disc. If anyone is able to download and test some mixed-mode use ca...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

I no longer think it is related specifically to the type of graphics card. This is based on the testing I conducted on my 2013 and 2019 iMacs, one being Nvidia and the other AMD. Your tests now show it occurs on Intel graphics as well. It is also not tied to whether it is a desktop or laptop, as it ...

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

Yes, it is very strange, because when it happened on my older iMac I just assumed it was bugs introduced by Apple in their Nvidia graphics card drivers. It is well known that Apple does not like Nvidia and has gone out of their way to ensure their cards are not properly supported anymore. However, I...

I should add, when the freeze up occurs, there is absolutely nothing showing up in the console logs. It is as if the process is not running at all. I only see the resulting console log entry when I force quit SheepShaver.
