An emulator focusing on accurate Mac emulation?

I'm looking forward to an emulator that emulates oldworld Macs accurately. Both SheepShaver and Basilisk II are good. But they lack precise cpu speed emulation and scsi, which are supported by pce-macplus. Also, they both lack an emulated MMU. Pce-macplus is great except for its emulating 68000 Macs...

Also, you can create an ISO image and put your file into it. Then mount it on PearPC.

Hi Cat_7, could you tell me which source or patches you used on the experimental builds?
I'd like to compile one on Linux.

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

Tested with a clean Qemu 2.9 build on my desktop PC running 64-bit Linux.
It really depends on the speed of the host machine. It runs faster on a i3-7100(@3.9GHz) CPU.
Still, FPU performance hits a plateau.

Re: Strange Fusion issue

You'd better quit to DOS and run FUSION. Check config.sys and don't load EMM386.exe.
If you're using PCI sound card that emulates a SoundBlaster card, load the driver first.
Here's two universal device driver: OAKCDROM for IDE CDROMs and CTMOUSE for PS/2 and Serial mouses.

Re: T22 the "Macintosh"

Thanks for sharing your pictures! I always liked the way FusionPC does handle the MacOS. Compatible hardware is becoming somewhat rare meanwhile. Yes, I like that too. Also, I heard that some Mac apps and games can only been emulated correctly under FUSHION or SoftMac. As most of modern PCs are sti...

T22 the "Macintosh"

I got an old IBM ThinkPad T22 laptop with Pentium III 900 that was able to use sound card on DOS... So I got FUSION run on that machine. To my surprise, it runs pretty fast. :eek: https://s14.postimg.org/xinwb7s9p/IMG_20170324_141127.jpg https://s14.postimg.org/4uay7zq3h/IMG_20170324_141434.jpg

Re: Why PearPC is SO slow?!

Well, it works pretty fast(at least faster than Qemu). It took me one hour or so to install the same os, further more, the disk image was NTFS compressed. My laptop uses an Ivy Bridge i3 processor.

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

The Pi Zero might run Mac OS 9 slightly less than OK (in comparison to the Power Mac G3/300), though you might have to set the memory to 128 MB at most. OS X might run, but it would be very slow. You can compile from 2.7's branch onward. As for OpenBIOS, can't help you much there. Thanks for your a...

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

While installing Mac OS 9.2 or other softwares, some disk errors occurred or the installer just hung there. I tried them on both raw and qed images.
