Re: Use build date as version number?

It is; all that needs to change is the Version Info strings in the Resource section: specifically the File Version and Product Version strings. They can be modified after the fact with various tools if needed. Open the exe in Visual Studio, use Edit, Add Resource, New, Version. You're limited to fo...

That seems like a very good idea, worth reviving.

Use build date as version number?

Another thread points out that the builds here are all numbered 2.4, and the way to distinguish them is by the build date. Is there any reason not to use the build date as the version number, so that a build made today would be version 2022.07.29 ?? That would save some trouble and confusion in the ...

Re: sharing

My build doesn't create hidden files (unlike standard SheepShaver, which does), but my app puts its prefs, NVRAM, ROM and few other files into the folder ~/Library/Application Support/MacOS9. Delete that MacOS9 folder and you've completely cleaned out the system. You can do the same thing by holding...

Re: sharing

Ah, I see. Yes, I updated the app with the latest SheepShaver code, and I made the mistake of using the rdp-filesharing prefs as the default instead of the prefs without file sharing . Try using the method described on my download page for changing back to the "nosharing" prefs file as the...

Maybe something is wrong with your system. No one else has reported any problem with M1 Macs and the current version.

Re: Standalone SheepShaver for OS X (add ROM and OS 8.5-9.0.4)

The SheepShaver Wrapper is now updated to the latest version from kanjitalk755.

I've also updated my standalone MacOS9 and System761 apps for the Mac, and the corresponding apps for Windows. No direct links allowed here, but they're easy to find through a web search.

Re: Windows BasiliskIIGUI doesn't show disks, etc. until clicked

And the answer to my font question was this. On my old system, the font used by the app was Deja Vu Sans. When I deleted that font from the system, the app looked like the one in Cat_7's screenshot, which is much better.

Re: Windows BasiliskIIGUI doesn't show disks, etc. until clicked

When I create a build I copy the dll's from C:\msys32\mingw32\bin into the folder where I keep the executable. Most dll's are actually needed for the GUI, not the SheepShaver executable itself. That fixed it. Thank you! It gave the GUI the old-X-system-style fonts instead of the current Windows fon...

Re: Has Anyone Seen Paul C. Pratt Online in the Last Year?

The Gryphon site may have been set to auto-renew at the hosting company. So it's possible that the November renewal doesn't signify anything more than that. But if no one is paying for the site, then eventually it will probably disappear.

Re: Has Anyone Seen Paul C. Pratt Online in the Last Year?

I decided to try the phone number listed for Paul C. Pratt in Ithaca NY. Last week, when I tried it, I got a prompt to leave a message (but I didn't leave one). Today I tried it again, and got a "This number is not in service" message. I assume this is very bad news.
