Re: mpw for OS X !?!

Oh yes, and gryphel, have you looked at this project? It looks interesting. I've added mpw to my Mini vMac Alternatives page. Naturally, I personally prefer running MPW tools in MPW in Mini vMac, since I'm more familiar with MPW than the OS X command line. A main reason Mini vMac exists is so that ...

Re: Sticky system settings

I wonder why my MiniMac does not remember the system settings after a restart. Specifically, I'd like to turn down the system beep volume and it always comes back up full blast. The same goes for other settings, although they don't bother me so much. From the FAQ : "A real Macintosh has a smal...

Re: ImportFL problem

would it be possible to add auto-binhex into ImportFL so that people wouldn't have to worry about losing the resource fork? Or is this not done as the only platforms that would be able to handle this are Classic and OS X (and they handle it differently)? It is not possible to do this by just adding...

Re: ImportFL problem

Beats me how this works... I thought the MacPlus couldn't draw more pixels that it does in its box. A Macintosh Plus can't. For one thing, the size of the screen, and its position in memory is written into the ROM in several places. To get a larger screen size, Mini vMac emulates a hacked Macintosh...

Re: ImportFL problem

Above is MiniVMac but MiniVMacII can do pretty much everything MiniVMac can do and more. Some of oldest Macintosh software may run better on a Macintosh Plus, or better yet on the original Macintosh, than on a Macintosh II. Further, Mini vMac's emulation of a Macintosh II is incomplete and buggy. I...

Re: ImportFL problem

These options do not include the MacPlus, correct? At least I can't find one. Any variation without an "-m" option emulates the MacPlus, since that is the default. For example, number 2427, as pointed out by 24bit. You can also just request your own variation from the Variations Service ....

Re: donating money towards development of sound in Mini vMac

However, I can't figure out where I heard that from now, so it's possible I'm thinking of someone else. He does read these forums ...

No, there is no easy way to determine the compile options used given a Mini vMac binary.

One difficulty with Stuffit Expander in System 6 is getting it to operate on files which don't have the right Macintosh file type. But there is a trick to make it work. If you hold down the command key before ...

Re: Building Mini vMac on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot 64bit
