Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

It appears difficult to make myself understandable. I'l try again. 1. A BasiliskII build compiled with SDL2 will generate SDL2 scancodes. 2. Builds from kanjitalk755 contain features that are not available on builds from other sources, some of which (like the possibility to re-map modifier keys) may...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

The existing keycodes files are not yet edited for use with SDL2 builds. We need the header that should be used for Linux/X11 SDL2 builds. The existing Linux/X11 headers are not for SDL2. The content of the keycodes file will be ignored without the needed header. SDL 2.0.14 should be fine for compil...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

I studied the picture of your keyboard better. It will be difficult, to use your keyboard in BasiliskII. At least you need more modifier keys. If we can assign both Option and Command to keys on your keyboard (will depend on the BasiliskII build), there is still the issue of the missing compatible k...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

I do not know which keycodes files you use or tried. In the newer versions, I added scancode to keycode translations for SDL2 SheepShaver and BasiliskII builds on macOS and Windows hosts. For Linux and X11 those translations are not yet available. Adding those translations may only need a new header...

Re: Opens fine, but only after dozens of launch crashes

My iMac monitor is set (as is default): 27-inch (5120 x 2880) SheepShaver window size is set to 1024x768 So magnification rate x2 should not be a problem! It looks more like magnification x5, which would be 5120x3840, except that then the window would be WIDER than my monitor, & it's considerab...

Re: Script Error: Handler not defined #fileName

The preferred way to mount a disk image in SheepShaver is to add it to the volumes list in preferences. (Not copying through the Unix/shared folder.) You can then install from the mounted disk. System 7.5.3 does not have an Applications folder, but you can create one if you wish. QuickTime files are...

Re: Opens fine, but only after dozens of launch crashes

I would start by removing this line from your prefs file:

Code: Select all

mag_rate 2
Then you can probably launch SheepShaver normally.

If you want to use mag_rate 2, first make sure that the window width and height are such that the window occupies less than half of your actual screen width and height.

Yes, it will if you do not set it up as described in the setup manual. Without at least a compatible rom file, SheepShaver will crash on launch.

Re: SheepShaver in Big Sur?

With a regular migration, from the old Mac or from a backup, all of SheepShaver will be carried over and will be functional. If you go for a M1 Mac, your current SheepShaver build will run with Rosetta2. You can upgrade to the latest universal SheepShaver build that will run natively on Apple Silicon.
