Out of curiosity, has anyone gotten OS 8 to run successfully on Sheepshaver?

Although interestingly, that SIGSEGV string is present when I check the Console log. It probably is that bug, guess I'm one of the rare cases.

Switching to the old world rom got me slightly farther (no error message), but when it says Welcome To Mac OS and begins to boot up off the OS 8 disc, suddenly Sheepshaver quits. Any idea why this might be happening?

Startup disk difficulty

Hi all. I'm running Sheepshaver 10/25/09 build on a MacBook w/ Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.3), using the New World Rom. It runs smoothly when I booted from an OS 9 startup CD, but I recently got an OS 8 startup CD (it's definitely legit), and when Sheepshaver tries to boot from it I get the following erro...

1. The only disk image I could successfully make of the Mummy CD was a CD/DVD master .cdr file which I know doesn't work in SS. I unsuccessfully tried to make .dmg read-only files (I tried extended and compressed) with Disk Utility, but both times said the disk was corrupt, so I've just been using t...

Different versions of QT don't seem to help any! Very odd...could it have to do with SS trying to read off of a CD?

I'm using QT 4.1.2 currently. I'll try other versions mentioned and see if there's any luck. Thanks for the quick reply!

Video issue

I'm running the fullscreen build of SS w/ OS 9.0.4 on an Intel MacBook under Leopard. I'm playing "Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh" off the original game disc in SheepShaver, because Disk Utility won't let me make an image of it for some reason (says the image is corrupt even though the CD's in perfect c...

Sorry, I'm running the fullscreen build from March '09.
EDIT:
I adjusted the settings accordingly, and though my mouse cursor is still somewhat followed by its shadow, it's a noticeable improvement with Dynamic refresh rate (JIT was already enabled). Thanks for the tip!

Mouse lag in OS 7.5.5

Basilisk loads promptly and seems fine, but there's heavy mouse lag in the emulated window. Is this just part of OS 7.5.5 that I've forgotten, or is there a way to rectify it?

As a first-time Basilisk user, I'm wondering if this should be used instead of the GUI, or if I have it all wrong? If so, which file do I add as the disk image, the NetworkAccess one, the MacROM one, or OS 7.5? Sorry if this is a silly question, haven't gotten Basilisk up and running yet :oops:

Extraordinarily kind of you to test it as well, thanks! Gonna give that a try right now! Xeper, I got the exact same problems using SheepShaver (black screens on start up mostly) when using both OS 8 and OS 9. HOWEVER... it seems to work just fine in Basilisk II with Mac OS 7.5.5. You should give th...

Thanks for the reply. What's interesting is that I get varied errors when opening the game. Sometimes it crashes, or the latest is "error type 10, please restart". It sometimes varies if I'm in 256 colors versus thousands of colors, oddly enough. There's always the possibility that it's a corrupt ga...

I'm having a similar problem with another game, Dungeon Master II: The Legend of Skullkeep. When I open the game, it crashes SheepShaver immediately, even though I've allocated more than enough memory to the application. I'm running the latest build of SS (disk image from an OS 9.0.4 system CD) on a...
