Hi, i'm trying to build vMac on my own, but i see from your post that you are using some compilation options which are not present in vMac build guide ... Do you have a doc explaining all the new switches and the new available machine types ( the -m switch). Have a look at the Mini vMac Variations ...

Re: Creating mountable disk images

I have a CD with some installer software on it. The software installer points to Disc 2 and Disc 3 and Disc 4, which are folders on the CD. What happens when installing is that the CD ejects and asks for the next floppy to be inserted. There must be a way of making a mountable disk image... I proba...

both the original .sit.hqx file and the intermediate .sit file will be preserved. This is a lie. No, the part you have quoted is absolutely true. They are the only files which will be correctly preserved in a Windows environment. Because they are archives, they do not require resource forks in orde...

No. It's a DOS-based command line driven utility to make disk images from floppy disks. The registered version is required to read 400/800K Mac disks, and the images are Apple Disk Copy 4.2 compatible, but with no resource fork. Disk2FDI has no write-back capability. The images are not compatible wi...

I actually got it to work. My roommate brought up a computer from ~1999 that had a SCSI port on the motherboard.

I've tried it, and the resulting "ROM file" won't run in any other emulator, even if you change the first four bytes to match a checksum that the emulators will recognize. :(

Yes, that's right. The Macintosh Classic is the only Macintosh with a boot disk in ROM (a cut-down version of System 6.0.3, as you will have seen).

It's not a hack. It's accurate emulation of a unique design feature of the Macintosh Classic.

Mini vMac is the only Macintosh emulator able to do this. That's why it requires the full 512K ROM image, whereas other emulators do not.

I read the other day that apparently DSK2FDI can be used with old Apple floppies. It was originally written to copy Amiga floppies (which are similarly incompatible with PC floppy hardware); the catch is that you need to have two floppy drives installed in your PC in order to use it. Although you c...

If you decide to follow kikkoman's suggestion and upgrade to Mac OS 8, make sure to keep a copy of your 7.5.5 installation (if you have one) handy, for occasions when you come across an application which will not run in 8.0+.

Re: Mini vMac Variations Update

I'll vote for Mac II, of course! I'll vote for Mac II when I get the MacII.ROM :wink: But also for the older variations. As I build the "System 6 Hell" section of this site, I often find good use for a slowed down emulation... Yes. Try running MacPlaymate without a slowed down emulation :!:

Once you have succeeded in booting to the ROM disk, you can then use Startup Device to select the ROM disk for the next time. 8) That does not work, because once the emulator (same as the real Mac Classic) is restarted, the ROM disk is no longer available to the Mac (unless you press Cmd+Option+X+O...

It is with the full 512K Classic ROM -- just press Command+Option+X+O in the raster screen. The screen is fast and the combination does not work on the flashing question mark screen, so you must be fast. http://xs140.xs.to/xs140/09244/2003-08-30_012024802.png Once you have succeeded in booting to t...
