Re: Working on bin/cue support in SheepShaver

I'm honestly not sure. I don't think I've gotten a successful bin/cue file using the cdrdao & toc2cue method myself. Perhaps relevant: the toc2cue man page has a note about static noise from audio CDs for recording. Would you be willing to share one of your bin/cue files? I could try to reproduc...

Re: Working on bin/cue support in SheepShaver

Is this the Beethoven CD: Beethoven and Beyond ? I downloaded it from Mac Garden and am unable to reproduce the issue of static. If you try Mac Garden's version, does it work for you? For your CD copies, I can only guess as to what's happening, but it is interesting they all played on your older ver...

Re: SheepShaver doesn´t work

From your video, I also noticed that you're clicking "Reopen" on the prompt to restore Sheepshaver to its previous state. It may not have anything do with your issue, but Sheepshaver will likely fail to restore. If you click "Don't reopen", does it still immediately close, or do ...

Re: Working on bin/cue support in SheepShaver

Hi, dom, It sounds like you're building from source for Mac OS with CoreAudio. In that case, you would hear static since the CoreAudio API has slightly changed, and I'm not sure the exact fix needed. However, rather than troubleshoot CoreAudio, if you're using code from kanjitalk's repo , you can bu...

Re: SheepShaver on Apple M1

I've been experimenting with this on and off for a few days, and kanjitalk's fork does build, although you have to build a universal or native SDL2.framework to embed. However , in a bizarre set of errors I've not really encountered before, arm64 SheepShaver currently refuses to launch. I've tried a...

Re: Higher your monitor's resolution, tinier Basillisk's screen.

What exactly is this gammaramp supposed to achieve or solve? Upon further thought, the prefs item might more accurately be called `gammapassthrough`.

Re: Scrutiny in the Great Round

I tried this game in Sheepshaver, and it may be a Quicktime version issue. They include Quicktime 2 in the installer.

If you have older Mac OS systems, adespoton is right that you might consider BasiliskII for this. Using BasiliskII and Mac OS 8.1, the game seems to run as expected.

I tested Oxyd on my setup, and it seems to run, if a little jittery when using the mouse control. I'm trying to think what could be causing different behavior between the January build and the latest one. Zapping the NVRAM is worthwhile since it occurs to me the latest build may try to load the nati...

Re: Working on bin/cue support in SheepShaver

I've not tested the Alone in the Dark games, but I'd like to try them out to see if audio can be played. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of these games, but I'll check the Mac Garden versions for CD audio.

Re: My new 26 July 2020 build crashes often at shut down

From the crash log, it's the sys_unix bindings for getting CD volume that caused the crash.

Which OS version do you use? Do you have any CD ROMs mounted, either as disk, cdrom, or bincues? It's odd that there's a call to get CD audio volume when the system is shutting down.

Re: My new 26 July 2020 build crashes often at shut down

I'm glad it's been isolated to something that came in with bin/cue support; that's at least some direction, but I'll keep trying to reproduce it and see if there's some small fix that can be put in.

Do you get any output in the Console after the crash or a crash report?

Not that I'm aware of, but Mojave is still my daily driver. What I have done ever since testing with Catalina or Big Sur is set Full Disk Access and leave it that way after having any permission issues.

Re: Permissions or sandbox issue in Catalina 10.15.6

Not sure if it'll help with your problem, but whenever I test on Catalina, I always have to be careful to add the SheepShaver executable to System Preferences -> Privacy -> Full Disk Access.
