Re: Help getting BII running on Ubuntu

I'd recommend some changes. Basilisk II actually emulates a Quadra 900 for the most part. So if you set it to use the Quadra 800 ROM and the 68040 CPU, you'll be in better shape. ROM info here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... -Dk7QDyKPY

BII using SDL2 without X11 stuck 640x480

I compiled SDL2 version 2.0.14 from source without X11 and BII ran fine except that it starts in 640x480 mode and I can’t seem to find how to change to a higher resolution. Control Panel -> Monitors only have 640x480 at 75MHz as an option. Since SDL2 doesn’t have the framebuffer option, configuring ...

Re: A Perfect Mac OS 7.6.1 Computer

The neat thing about including MPW is that you can then compile all of Apple's sample code, and you can run ToolServer, which lets you script and interact with Mac OS in a very UNIX-y way. There's even a third party app written that turns it into a telnet server so you can log in remotely and contr...

A Perfect Mac OS 7.6.1 Computer

I am trying to create a Chromebook/Mac OS 7.6.1 machine (Basilisk II) for casual generic work and was wondering if these are the best choices: ROM: Macintosh Quadra 800 ROM (1MB) RAM: 136MB CPU: 68040 HDD: 800MB word processor: Word 6.0.1 (from Office 4.2.1) <Word 5.1a doesn't install, and v6 should...

Re: Speedometer: Disk Test Problem

Did you try assigning more RAM to Speedometer already? The RAM setting can be edited via "Get Info" from the File menu. 1. I never thought about this since it ran fine out-of-the-box in Mini vMac on a Mac Plus with only 4MB of RAM. 2. I didn't know about this "assign more RAM" t...

Re: Game Recommendations Needed!

During the '90s the only reason I went to my sister's Macintosh II was to play Maelstrom! That was an amazing fluid game. I was a PC convert at that time.

Speedometer: Disk Test Problem

First of all, a big thanks for this wonderful emulator! Running Mac OS 7.6.1 on a cheap $200 Chromebook makes my eyes water with joy! I like to boast that Chrome OS has been eradicated like the virus that it is... and replace it with Debian Linux that automatically boots into Basilisk II. Being a pe...
