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

OK that will do, that is SheepShaver version 2.5, creation date 1 March 2021, or possibly 2 March when you are in China. (You will find version number and creation date when you select the application icon and hit command-I (which which show the Finder Info panel for the selected file). For the test...

Thanks for the prefs content. You did not yet answer question 1:

Which SheepShaver build do you use now? (Version number and creation date)

We may have a solution. kanjitalk755 added a new prefs item "name_encoding". As Apple does not provide documentation about the used file name encoding or the apparent backward compatibility for reading old (classic MacOS) filenames in MacOSX, finding the correct encoding keyword will be a ...

Which is your OSX or macOS host system? Creating disk images in this way is not possible in macOS 10.15 (Catalina) and later.

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

OK, now I think I understand. 1. When the external file system feature in SheepShaver for Windows is used (My Computer icon), Chinese characters in file names are displayed correctly on the SheepShaver side, but classic Mac file attributes are lost. As far as I can imagine, there is no solution for ...

It is strange that sheepshaver under windows can mount NTFS disk correctly and display Chinese characters. I am quite sure that NTFS disks cannot be "mounted" in SheepShaver for Windows. I suppose a NTFS disk can be accessed through "My Computer". The Unix/shared folder in Sheep...

Maybe you should explain more about your setup. What has a NTFS disk to do with the Unix/shared folder feature in OSX?

Do you use a NTFS disk that is mounted in OSX (or folder on it) as shared folder for SheepShaver OSX?

Re: Booting Mac OS 9 in Qemu for 10.6 Snow Leopard

If the same backward compatibility policy was used in 2017, the earliest OSX version that version 2.7 could be used with would be OSX 10.10 (Yosemite).
September 2017 macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) was released.

The best way will be to create a new empty disk image of sufficient size. If this works with files names intact, it can be used to move files between SheepShaver guest and OSX host. - Start Disk Utility (in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder) - From the File menu, choose New Image > Blank Image... ...

Information may get lost on the "Unix" drive which is not a HFS or HFS+ volume. You can see that when you select "Unix" and check Finder Info for the volume. The format is seen by the Finder as "Unix Directory Tree". I am trying to find out if it is the Unix/shared fold...

Now the problem is that there is no need to copy. In the Chinese simplified macosx10.9, the file names in the folder are all Chinese characters. After the folder is mounted as UNIX and displayed on the macos9 desktop, finder opens the UNIX folder, and the file displayed in simplified Chinese is gar...

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

There are different possible encodings for languages like Chinese. I suppose UTF-8 is normally used in OSX. I am not sure which encoding was used in Classic MacOS.
