Re: A Perfect Mac OS 7.6.1 Computer

I'd recommend some changes. Basilisk II actually emulates a Quadra 900 for the most part. So if you set it to use the Quadra 800 ROM and the 68040 CPU, you'll be in better shape. ROM info here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wB2HnysPp63fezUzfgpk0JX_b7bXvmAg6-Dk7QDyKPY Everything else looks...

Re: A Perfect Mac OS 7.6.1 Computer

I am trying to create a Chromebook/Mac OS 7.6.1 machine (Basilisk II) for casual generic work and was wondering if these are the best choices: ROM: Macintosh LC III ROM (1MB) RAM: 128MB CPU: 68030 with FPU HDD: 800MB word processor: Word 6.0.1 (from Office 4.2.1) <Word 5.1a doesn't install, and v6 ...

Re: Speedometer: Disk Test Problem

Did you try assigning more RAM to Speedometer already? The RAM setting can be edited via "Get Info" from the File menu. 1. I never thought about this since it ran fine out-of-the-box in Mini vMac on a Mac Plus with only 4MB of RAM. 2. I didn't know about this "assign more RAM" t...

Re: Game Recommendations Needed!

During the '90s the only reason I went to my sister's Macintosh II was to play Maelstrom ! That was an amazing fluid game. I was a PC convert at that time. Your sister obviously didn't have the entire set of AmbrosiaSW games installed; you missed out on Barrack and Escape Velocity. Same fluidity, b...

Hi, What you would be looking for is usb pass-through into your guest. -device usb-audio only presents an usb audio device to the guest, and that is not what you want.

Rebooting doesn't always fix it, for some strange reason.
That's because sometimes something else loads at memory address 0 after boot. It's Russian Roulette every time.

Using the SDL build you can modify the keycodes file to map to your soft keyboard... but I'm not sure what mappings you'd need. It would be easier to use a wired or bluetooth keyboard with your Droid device that has the keypad on it.
