Re: Tips for a more stable Basilisk

I think your right, it is the emulated computer. The program Basilisk itself doesn't seem to be unresponsive on my computer's end but I can't interact with whatever I was doing on it. I have been playing "Pax Imperia" and it seems to freeze up more with 7.6.1. than with 7.5.5. The same can...

Re: Tips for a more stable Basilisk

My Host Operating System is windows 10, Basilisk just seems to freeze and I can't interact with it. Is that called crashing? I see the guide and it has some good information for 8.1, what settings should I use for 7.5.5 or 7.6.1? If you say I can find out what the error is in windows by searching it...

Tips for a more stable Basilisk

Are there any tips or ideas one can do to make Basilisk less prone to Freezing up? My Basilisk freezes up occasionally, is that what crashing is because I thought crashing was when the program ceases? I emulate a system 7.6.1 but I also have 7.5.5 and I use a quadra650 rom. Is there a link for recom...

I do set my Basilisk to 1024x768. I reset it and it did work better thank you. Is there a way to tell what a game is set to or is it just trial and error?

Re: BasiliskII sound quits, then freezes

That would be very great, the window's key activates my start menu and gets in the way of any programs running.

Re: BasiliskII sound quits, then freezes

So replacing the BasiliskII_keycodes file doesn't stop BasiliskII from losing sound and freezing up. The old 2010 version still works so I simply replaced the newer version with that and the newer keycodes with the older one. Which key on a PC mimics the mac [option] key? Alt=command and ctrl=ctrl a...

Re: video tutorial for mini vmac

That worked perfectly, thank you. It doesn't seem to work for the mini vmac that emulates macII but so far the only game I got is Shanghai but that's not too important.

EDIT: Nevermind I figured it out. In macII it's alt and not ctrl, at least mine is.

Re: Can't replace "QuickTime," it's in use

That worked, at least the basilisk issue is solved. The quicktime gladly copied over to the system folder. The game still isn't letting me turn on background music but I will try to figure that out tomorrow. As for the pc version I will look at that. I kind of want the original mac version.

BasiliskII version (30-09-2019) for windows does the same thing to me as version (30-04-2020), sounds quits and then freezes if I try to either restart or shut down the program.
