Re: Cannot open my childhood game :(

For future reference, here is one way this could have been done in Mini vMac: * Launch Mini vMac, drag in a bootable disk image, such as Sys6Util.dsk . * Drag in a blank disk image , the 5M one is fine. (The emulated disk "Untitled" should show up in Mini vMac.) * Run ImportFl , drag "...

Re: Where can I get "Mini vMac IIx"?

I'm wanting Mini vMac with FPU emulation (68851) A Macintosh II has a Motorola 68881 floating point unit, which is probably what you mean. Mini vMac attempts to emulate it, but its accuracy should not be relied on. (This is the main way in which the Macintosh II emulation of Mini vMac is incomplete...

Re: Interesting things to do with the Variations Service (v3

And interestingly enough, it can run offline and even sends me a "Your request has been sent" message." The policy of the script for the Variation Service is that, if it detects the form has been hacked, it will claim success and then discard the request. If it doesn't detect a hacke...

Mini vMac varserv is PAID now? By the way, Mini vMac variations are not for sale, instead they can be sponsored with a donation. The distinction is that the value of the variation is considered to be very small compared to the required donation. Anyone can make their own for free with a bit of time...

Re: Mini vMac varserv is PAID now?

Why not just use 3.5 beta? It's pretty stable and provides way more features than 3.4 stable. Yes, as mentioned in June 11, 2017 news , the main reason for the change is to encourage more people to test the Beta. As far as I know (from months of daily use), it is currently working perfectly, except...

Re: Mini vMac varserv is PAID now?

I think that if you pay at least $2 to the Gryphel Project, you should be able to use the Stable Variations Service for free like it was before, because if you must use multiple builds for emulating different machines then you must sponsor every one of them, and you pay even more. Just my opinion o...

Re: Mini vMac Linux ARM Custom Res

Thanks for the bug report. To narrow down the issue, could you try Variation 8254, which is compiled for black and white. I remember having some trouble with color output on the Raspberry Pi, but when I updated Raspbian the problem went away. So unfortunately I can't now debug what Mini vMac is doin...

Re: Mini vMac Linux ARM Custom Res

By the way, for anyone using Mini vMac with a touch screen in full screen mode, you will probably want to use the "Mouse Emulation Accuracy : Less" option. The more accurate mouse emulation usually used in full screen mode is designed for devices that can give relative motion, like mice.

Re: Mini vMac Linux ARM Custom Res

I have added the 480x320 resolution to the Mini vMac 3.5 Beta Variations Service.

Since that is smaller than the Macintosh Plus screen, there are likely to be various compatibility issues.

Perhaps there is a problem with your Enter key? You can also run commands in MPW by clicking on the box in the wi...

You could try compiling without the assembly language file, using -no-asm in the build system.

I have merged these changes into Mini vMac 3.4, and made additional changes, which are available in the latest Mini vMac Development snapshot (see the Mini vMac News).

Re: Building minivmac outside minivmac

the building process that's on the official minivmac page involves building inside the emulator itself, but it uses GCC after all so it should be possible to somehow build outside, with a normal make/gcc/Makefile process as with any other Linux program. To clarify, the "Build" application...
