Re: Having an issue with a game and it's CD

So could I run an older version of sheepshaver on a Windows, and that would stand a better chance of working?

Re: Having an issue with a game and it's CD

Yeah it’s so weird that it used to work but not anymore. I have not tried virtual cd yet, I will give that a try.

Thanks!

Having an issue with a game and it's CD

In 2019, I successfully got a version of Sheepshaver to run a game called Lode Runner 2. It was very simple, I used the download available on MyAbandonware I think, but it seems like it's the same one found on MacRepo and MacGarden. I'd like to start streaming this game on Twitch and maybe one day g...

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

Just out of curiosity, is there a maximum amount of resources I can allocate to Sheepshaver?

For example, if I give it 16GB of RAM, will OS 9 know what to do with that much memory?

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

Looks like I can just tell it to skip that part actually, seems to be working now.

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

I know, I meant check the CD Rom box on the installation media and set it to Boot from: CD Rom. I left it on to install last night, but it's been stuck at Updating Hard Disk Drivers since then. It now says 14 hours remaining, even though it started last night at 3 hours remaining. I remember OS 9 co...

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

Okay, that's what did it. I didn't have both CD-ROMs checked.

Thanks!

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

Thanks for all your help. So Ronald, are you saying that I can use Mac OS 9.0.4 International download from Macintosh Garden and it will work simply by adding it to Sheepshaver, or do I have to convert it to a .CDR? Currently on startup, it knows there's an OS there, but sends an error that says &qu...

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

Ah okay, I think my issue is that I can't mount the installation media in Big Sur to create a .cdr. So I'm looking for a .cdr file I think.

Re: Sheepshaver Problems

I did follow the instructions, but for some reason this time around I'm having issues getting a functioning OS. The host OS is Big Sur. I've tried various install images. Only one has worked, but it did not include any kind of applications or utilities, so it couldn't open a lot of disk images for s...

Sheepshaver Problems

I’ve set up Sheepshaver correctly a few times, but for some reason I’m having issues this time around. I’ve been putting in different operating systems, but the only one that will run has no applications or utilities, so I can’t open any .iso files or .img files. When I installed Toast on this copy,...
