Re: Any emulator that has 3D accelerator?

Thanks so much!! I have never used virtualbox before, but will try to learn how to do it. I own the actual CD rom for the game, thankfully. I own a MacBook Pro without a built-in disc drive, but I have an external one I plug in through USB, so if I put the game in that, will it work? Do I install th...

Re: Any emulator that has 3D accelerator?

Hi everyone, sorry it's been a while since my last post - I went back to university and got very busy! If someone could help me run M&Ms: The Lost Formulas in Wineskin, I would greatly appreciate it. I am not very familiar with Wine and have not found great videos online to help. My problem is t...

Re: Any emulator that has 3D accelerator?

Thank you all for the help. I have never done a virtual machine before, so I may look into that. I’ve tried mounting the hybrid disk image on my host machine, it gets listed as a drive in wineskin and crossover and I put the type as CD rom, but I still get the Insert Disc error; however, I think I k...

Re: Any emulator that has 3D accelerator?

Thank you so much, that info was very helpful. I found the hybrid image on mac garden and downloaded it, along with wineskin. The game installed completely, but then gave me an error saying "Insert game disc" when I chose to play it. I tried it on Crossover with the same error. I feel like...

Any emulator that has 3D accelerator?

Hi again, first of all, thank you so much to all those who helped me change the processing speed reported in Sheepshaver recently. The new build allowed my game to work and I am so happy. I was trying to play a game (M&Ms: The Lost Formulas), which runs on Mac OS 9 but needed a 3D Accelerator ca...

Re: Processor Speed too low for game - Sheepshaver

Update: I stupidly didn't see the new build posted in the Sheepshaver forum that Mr. Regensburg built that addresses my issue! I downloaded it and replaced my old version of the app. I saw on the updated setup manual that I need to edit the sheepshaver prefs file myself, but I can't seem to find it....

Re: Processor Speed too low for game - Sheepshaver

Thank you so, SO much to both of you. I also suspected that it had something to do with the coded value of 100 mHz throwing off the game, because in reality, SS is actually running much faster due to my fast MacBook pro intel machine. Please forgive me because I have never played with the SS code di...

Processor Speed too low for game - Sheepshaver

Hello, please forgive me for lack of knowledge as I am not computer-savvy. I have had lots of fun playing old games on Sheepshaver, without any problems. One game I really want to play is "Math Missions: Grades 3-5 Adventures." The ISO file I tried never worked, so I instead used my CD rom...
