Qemu 4.2 Launch Issue

When I try to open Qemu 4.2, I get this:

The file “qemu.command” could not be executed because you do not have appropriate access privileges.

Tried changing the permissions for the command file but no luck.

Re: Aliens vs Predator Gold Crashing at Launch

Ah. Makes sense. And while we're on the subject, since there don't seem to be any pre-built Qemu VMs out there, has anyone written some Qemu instructions that are easy to understand for a non-programmer? I really have a hard time setting that up, and I want to try it.

Aliens vs Predator Gold Crashing at Launch

I am trying to run the OS 9 version of AvP Gold from 2000 in a pre-built SS wrapper. When I launch the game, the whole system freezes. I'm hoping it can be fixed in the VM preferences. The virtual drive is 8-9 GB. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Renderer Error in OS 9 Game

Hi All,

I've been trying to run realMyst in SS under OS 9.0.4, and when launching, it gives the error Renderer Check Failed. Does this have to do with VRAM, or something else? Stumped.... :roll:

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

When I originally installed AMBER, it wasn't a fresh install, it was a copy from another machine. And the Quicktime I was using for it was 2.5 (the game is from 1996). I don't know if the fix came just from reinstalling the game, or the automatic QT 2.1 that was installed with it, or both. Anyway th...

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

Ok, this just keeps getting better and better...I was finally able to get AMBER to work in SSW, _BUT_ when I set the screen res to 800x600 and go to full screen, the screen goes black but the desktop window stays the same size. Tried setting it to another resolution and back - no go. :shock:

Sounds good. I just tried replacing SS in SSW with an older version - no change.

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

Aha! Maybe that will do it. I really like SSW and the whole all-in-one thing. If I can just replace the SS in it, sounds great. Trying that out now. Thanks!

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

I did just try opening SSW in my admin account, which I normally never go into and has nothing but OS X stuff in Library - still crashing.

Maybe I should ask emendelson if he still has his earlier version I used to use on Snow Leopard - from 2016?

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

Hmmm. I'll have to try as emendelson said, using SS and not SSW. Funny you mention about the brightness in AMBER - I once tried the Windoze version, and it has no brightness control at all for some bizarre reason. You're stuck at the brightest setting, which looks awful. Did you mean you'd upload AM...

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

I looked there too - nothing that rings a bell. I suppose there could be some Home/Library stuff elsewhere that's causing trouble. I did move some of those things from 10.6. Resetting prefs is a dreadful bore, as they say. I'll try copying the folder on the Desktop, emptying the one in the Home fold...

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

Well, I looked at the System/Library/Extensions folder, and it all seems to be general OS X stuff. Nothing with a name suggesting I installed it later. I should mention though that SSW did work a lot better in 10.6.8 Snow Leopard before I upgraded. This is on an early 2008 Mac Pro.

Re: AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

In OS 9? The only thing different is Quicktime 2.5.1 which I installed after. AMBER's graphics are better with it than a later version.

AMBER: Journeys Beyond Crashes in Sheepshaver Wrapper

Hi All, I got Sheepshaver Wrapper working with OS 9.0.4 from an earlier post, but am now getting EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) and EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT) errors when starting the game AMBER: Journeys Beyond. It either freezes SSW with a black screen, or crashes it. Here is the SIGSEGV data: Process: SheepSh...

Re: Error Installing OS 9 in Sheepshaver Wrapper

I tried yet another different generic installer image, and it works great - until I try to launch a particular game I like, AMBER: Journeys Beyond - it crashes SSW and gives me an EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) error. Now what? :shock: :roll: (I'll set up a different post for this.)

Re: Pre-Built OS 9 VMs?

Just for the record, the QEMU build I mentioned to Cat-7 has a ReadMe that says:

System Requirements:
64-bit x86 processor
Mac OS 10.6 or higher

Maybe at the end of the day it won't work, but it's worth a shot.

Pre-Built OS 9 VMs?

Hi All, I have a question about QEMU VMs for OS 9 - I'm not a programmer, and so far have had a lot of trouble understanding how to use QEMU in Snow Leopard. I noticed that GitHub has QEMU VMs for several different OSes, but none for 9.2.2. Does anyone know of a site that has pre-built VMs for OS 9 ...

I tried the keystroke and it works - BUT - now the OS 9 screen doesn't fill the monitor from top to bottom. I have it set for 640x400, which is right for the aspect ratio, but OS 9 is a bit squished in the middle. Looks fine just as a window. If I run in 640x480, it fills the monitor but everything ...

OS 9 Fullscreen Issue

I'm having an issue with SS not running in fullscreen (OS 9.0.4 in OS X Snow Leopard). I've tried to get it to run in fullscreen at 800x500, but the preference is forced back into Window mode each time. Not sure what to do. :roll:
