Basilisk II suddenly not working (Windows)

A few months ago I set up Basilisk II on my Windows 10 machine with relatively little trouble. I spent a couple of weeks playing through some old games and everything worked smoothly. Fast forward to today, I try to open Basilisk II for the first time in months and it just won't open. I tried launch...

Re: Uncompressed Files?

The idea of Macintoshgarden is preserving anything for Mac in the first place. I´m no gamer, so sorting out things is terra incognita for me. :) As for the Storymaker files, please feel free to try this DL. https://www.magentacloud.de/lnk/w44sJZ6r Its a DisKCopy 6 image compressed in macOS, hope it...

Re: Uncompressed Files?

Ahhh gotcha! So if I run MacOS 8 in Basilisk, I should be able to mount the ISO? And from there I need to be able to compress the files?

Re: Uncompressed Files?

For StoryMaker, I just want to be able to run the application and play the saved game that's in there. Totally happy to let you add the Ryan Dow stuff - but I'm confused - what might other people be able to do with those files that we can't? Sounds like they're just unusable.

Re: Uncompressed Files?

.zip of the .ISO https://www.dropbox.com/s/uqs2108ydqecc ... k.zip?dl=0

The files in question are in Classic > WB Games > ANYTHING "Ryan Dow" folder or in Game Design > Story Maker.

Re: Uncompressed Files?

Other quick question - don't I need DropStuff to create a .SIT? Or is StuffIt Expander capable?

Re: Uncompressed Files?

A Mac HFS CD did never mount in Windows, as the file system is unknown in Windows. The same is true for ISO images of Mac HFS CDs. If your CD is not HFS but ISO 9660, Windows, MacOS and Unix should read it. Hard to tell what the creator of the CD has had in mind when burning the files to CD. ;) If ...

Re: Uncompressed Files?

Two other questions in case I can't figure this out:
A) is there any other recourse other than this whole disc image thing?
B) If I put these files on a machine running OS X would I be able to compress it into a format Basilisk could use?

Re: Uncompressed Files?

I made a separate .ISO with ImgBurn and got the same result. Both .ISOs mount just fine to Windows. :sad:

Re: Uncompressed Files?

Yeah I don't have a 32-bit machine laying around, I'm afraid. I tried making an .ISO and adding it to the prefs file - it mounted okay but it seemed to think it was an audio CD with one track? It's definitely a data disc. Looks like the disc was originally burned in OSX - not sure if that makes any ...

Uncompressed Files?

Hi there! Pretty new to Mac emulation, but I managed to get Basilisk II up and running and a bunch of old games installed. However, in addition to the abandonware I've been able to dig up online, I also have a disc filled with old games and software I'd like to be able to access... however, it's all...
