Indeed, SheepShaver does have its button numbers mixed up, resulting in the middle and right buttons being reversed. I have a fix for this, which I will seek to have delivered into the source tree. The bug is actually in BasiliskII code and affects both applications.

I don't know if it has anything to do with your crash, but it is immediately noticeable that you have a plethora of input managers and the like installed: 0x22000 - 0x2dfff +com.rogueamoeba.audio_hijack_server.hermes 2.0.3 (2.0.3) <d2d1065eb5d1d904d1ba2146ed3b4a93> /usr/local/hermes/modules/Instant ...

Seeing the lack of response of such things as USB Overdrive or TheMouse2B on OS 9.0.4 running under SheepShaver for OS X, ... I just tried TheMouse2B in Mac OS 8.6 under SheepShaver, and it appears to work, except that it is responding to the middle mouse-button rather than to the right button. Whe...

I'm happy to report that fellow forum member and developer Myrd has delivered all of my SheepShaver code changes into the official CVS repository. I have made one final set of builds, available at http://www.nomicro.com/SheepShaver.html . These builds are right from CVS today, 28 June 2008, and ther...

Re: Which Compiler do I use?

Ah, thank you Ronald, that tells me that Sheepshaver must be locking up before very much of any code is run. I am now trying to compile the downloaded source code, would you happen to know which compiler it is written for? I see no makefile for gcc, nor a project file for xCode. Thank you for all y...

Where is the sheepshaver_pref file?
The file is in your home directory and is named ".sheepshaver_prefs". The leading "." renders it invisible to the usual tools, but you can open it with (e.g.) TextWrangler's "Open Hidden" menu item.

The b/w cursors are in CURS resources, the color cursors are in crsr resources, but the Finder only has the CURS resource, so how could this particular problem be a problem with a color cursor?

With command-click-and-hold, a 'hand' icon appears (in the "S" version, not in the "H" version) that can scroll the window in all directions. I just had a look at the SheepShaver video driver's SetHardwareCursor support, and it clearly does not do the right thing when passed a c...

It would be great if you somehow managed to achieve normal behaviour for the Command key (isn't Command supposed to work for multiple selections and for moving files or folders from one volume to another?) and for mice with three buttons. While command/option-clicks should work normally with my jus...

Hm, why would SheepShaver emulate a 3-button mouse for a emulated machine that does not by itself use a 3-button mouse as such? Or does it? The multi-button mouse is inherited from SDL and Basilisk II. The emulated mouse is a 3-button ADB mouse, and I've traced the code all the way down to the leve...

The SDL library used by SheepShaver eats command-clicks and option-clicks, turning them into right-clicks and middle-clicks of the emulated 3-button mouse. I don't yet know why real right-clicks, or command-click-emulated right-clicks, don't actually seem to work in the hosted Mac OS. Of course, I o...

OK, I decided to try Basilisk II. What I observe is that when I move the cursor outside the BII window, the "real" cursor appears; the BII cursor continues to track around the outside edge of the BII window as I move the mouse around, as long as BII is in the foreground. When some other ap...

Interesting! Would this be a solution that is worth to add to cvs? I think it's worth considering. Being a heuristic approach, it is not ideal, but a better solution would probably have to involve devising a ROM patch. That would require a great deal more effort, by a developer with access to all o...
