Gryphel wrote me a working Egret/Caboose/Cuda dumper (he's awesome, if nobody's mentioned it lately) and we're now collecting dumps of the various versions of each of those chips (I think there's only one Caboose version). This will enable emulation of the remaining 68030 desktop Macs as well as th...

Re: Having trouble with an "enhanced" CD

I used ImgBurn to make a .bin/.cue of the file but can't find any 7.5.5 utilities that will mount .bin/.cue. I can't make an .iso because it is enhanced and ImgBurn doesn't like that for .iso files. I can't find any windows utilities that were made for ripping just the data "track". Are there any s...

Wow! VirusTotal is a fantastic resource!

Macintosh virus infections were found on each of the four disk images as I had ex...

Make sure the System Folder of the copied system is "blessed", shows its proper System Folder icon. If it does not, you need to bless the folder by opening and closing the folder. If the icon still does not show, open the folder, drag the Finder and System files out of the folder, close the folder,...

The problem is that it didn't flag the files as containing a virus, rather it flagged them as a virus. Hi MarkS, When scanning one of the A-Max disk images I mentioned, the Avast! program provided the malware name MacOS:Nvir-B and type Virus/Worm (the VPS version was 090520-0, 20/05/2009). This see...

This is interesting. In my experience, Avast! Windows version is also capable of detecting viruses in A-Max disk images. A-Max is a Macintosh Plus emulator for Amiga computers, and it uses a proprietary 800K format for floppy disks which can be read in the Amiga's floppy disk drive whilst storing Ma...

Re: ROM identification and compatibility

Hi gwsmithgw, Open your ROM images in a binary file editor and note the first four hex bytes. This is the ROM checksum. Then compare your ROM size (64K, 128K, 256K, 512K, 1MB, 2MB or 4MB) and checksum with the data given in any of the ROM tables at the following URLs to identify the Macintosh model ...

I haven't heard of that emulator before. Thanks for the link, ClockWise!

Mini vMac doesn't boot some Macintosh System disk images I have found, and I can't submit a bug report because I don't own a Mac Plus. It will be useful to try them in another currently-developed emulator.
