Re: SheepShaver version 2.5 for MacOSX/macOS for testing

This version seems to have great promise except the CAPS LOCK does not work. Has anyone else run into that problem? Thanks! Great effort. You're right. Caps Lock isn't working as expected with 2.5. Caps Lock works like the Shift key. If you hold Caps Lock down, then you'll get capital letters. Caps...

Re: SheepShaver version 2.5 for MacOSX/macOS for testing

I am surprised it runs in 10.6 at all. The application is configured to run in 10.7 and up. In 10.6.8, #3 has slower drawing than #1 and #2 and in full screen mode there is artifacts in the top right corner when moving the mouse (black rectangle/triangles in the menu bar). You do not mention the an...

Re: SheepShaver version 2.5 for MacOSX/macOS for testing

It seems to work in Lion just fine (didn't work with my first Lion partition). It also seems to work in Snow Leopard. Tests: Start Sheep Shaver. Test full screen with Control-Return. Switch to Windowed mode. Shut Down from Mac OS 9 Finder. Versions: #1 2.4 20140201 (full screen is scaled but not edg...

Any application can be scaled arbitrarily but only if they are purposefully made resolution independent which SheepShaver is not :-( http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20110322011218363 http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/HiDPIOverview/Introductio...

On that note, does anyone here know if it's possible to have multiple partitions with different partition formats in the same disk image? (for Sheepshaver or for any other non-emulation purpose) Disk Utility.app lets you create a read/write disk image with a single partition. You can then use Disk ...

The error is not 3d graphics related. I've gotten the same error message while trying to run MPW from the Unix drive. Moving MPW to the boot image works. I'm using SheepSaver 2009-10-25 on Snow Leopard. It's probably a bug in the extfs code. The bug may or may not be related to the issue where MPW r...

AppleTalk/LocalTalk is not supported on Keyspan devices even on old Macs that can run Mac OS 9 natively so it won't work in SheepShaver either. LocalTalk does weird things to the Serial Communications Controller (SCC) on old Macs to select special modes that differ from the standard asynchronous ser...
