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

Great news! I made a patch that implements the Screamer sound chip into QEMU. This one sounds better than the older Screamer implementation. Also I am trying to commit these patches into QEMU so we will no longer need a custom made version of QEMU to play sound. - Mac OS 9.0.4 plays MP3's perfectly....

I used the USB audio device that comes with QEMU. I have experiemented with using a real USB sound card in QEMU. The results were not good.

I suggest using the tigerbrew package manager.

From the directions from this page: https://github.com/mistydemeo/tigerbrew

Install Tigerbrew:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL raw.github.com/mistydemeo/tigerbrew/go/install)"

Re: Supported media formats

Also the qemu-img program that comes with QEMU does support converting a lot of other formats that could be turned into a format usabl...

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

I just tested Mac OS 10.2.8 with Mark's screamer version of QEMU. It was terrible. There is only a fraction of a second of sound heard every second. This is way worse than Mac OS 10.4.

Re: The Quadra 800 coming to Qemu

According to its wikipedia entry Executor is open sourced. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executor_(software). It is an interesting idea to use Executor's ROM in QEMU. I won't personally. An authentic ROM would probably be superior to Executor's ROM. Finding them is pretty easy. This page has the...

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

To add to this puzzle, I've now verified that OS X 10.1 hangs at a similar place during boot... 10.0 and 10.2+ don't. Oddly, I had to go all the way back to the August 2016 build to get 10.1 booting again. This includes my install CDs for 10.1.0, 10.1.3 and 10.1.5, not just the pre-installed OS. My...

How do MP3's sound in your 9.2 VM?

What Mac OS ROM version are you using? I am using version 8.4.

When I boot without the packaged openbios file I am able to boot up. Sound doesn't work though.

Maybe I need to try reinstalling Mac OS 9.
