Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

I assume that the MPFR library is needed for building.
Cannot MPFR for arm64 simply be copied from an arm64 machine to an Intel machine?

(BTW: In 5 to 6 weeks I expect to receive the M1 iMac I ordered.)

Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

At this stage I think it is better not to post new builds yet.

I will add to my latest BasiliskII build the warning to use it on Apple Silicon with

Code: Select all

cpu 3
fpu false

Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

As the FPU issue is with BasiliskII only in the current master, would it be OK to post a BasiliskII build with this solution?

Re: No sound when playing Puppet Motel

Yes, better not downgrade QuickTime. QT versions should be backward compatible. You can upgrade QT if needed for some software, but note that QT 4.1.2 is the latest version that is compatible with SheepShaver.

Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

What will be the properties of the resulting builds, SheepShaver and BasiliskII, x86_64 and arm64? FPU working in all four? BasiliskII: No JIT compiler in both x86_64 and arm64? SheepShaver: JIT compiler available in both x86_64 and arm64? Edit: Do I understand correctly that only BasiliskII changed...

Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

But, frankly, I think that the JIT compiler is not needed on any modern Mac, whether Intel or Apple Silicon.

Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

When BasiliskII works fine natively on arm64 there is no reason for the user to try and run it with Rosetta. And BasiliskII will run so fast on any arm64 machine that JIT is not needed. Is it possible to to make it so that a universal build uses different solutions for FPU and JIT for the two archit...

Re: Sheepshaver/BasiliskII development and supported platforms

I myself disabled JIT in BasiliskII in the past because of stability issues and I never again enabled it since. On my late 2013 iMac I do not miss it. And in our BasiliskII setup guide we (still) advise to not enable JIT. I do not know how others feel about removing JIT from BasiliskII for macOS per...

Yes, I saw it a while ago and I tried it. It is nice work, based on BasiliskII. But features and performance are very limited compared to the BasiliskII and SheepShaver versions we support here.

Re: SheepShaver fatal error! ID=2718

1. If you did not yet do that, best check the CDROM checkbox for DUST.img (which is a CD image file) in the volumes list in preferences. 2. Read the readme! The game will not run from the CD (image). You will need to first install the game by dragging the Install folder to your hard drive (MacOSHD)....

Re: Is the preference file of SheepShaver capable of comments like those preceded by '#'?

I do not know for sure, but I very much doubt it.

What would you want to use commenting out for? You can delete a line if you wish. The next time you save settings in the GUI prefs editor, the line will re-appear.

Re: How to display Chinese correctly on UNIX disk when Chinese MacOSX 10.9 runs sheepshaver Chinese version macos9.0?

How can I apply this code to the sheepshaver of "0301.zip"? You cannot. The "name_encoding" feature is new in the 16 April and 21 April test builds. yes. It can display Chinese correctly. Good! So this new feature works as intended. But the mouse feel off the frame, not smooth. ...
