Re: Program in MacOS 9.0.4 in SheepShaver doesn't open

I see. That SheepShaver build is useless for you anyway on Windows. I did not try the game with SheepShaver / Windows, but I´ll have a look. Qemu PPC / OSX 9.2 seems to run the game too, but the mouse is misbehaving on my side. The game is loading the sample file with SheepShaver / Windows 10 just t...

Re: Program in MacOS 9.0.4 in SheepShaver doesn't open

I don´t know about the Japanese version, but Yoot Tower.toast from Macintoshgarden is running on my side with SheepShaver 2.5 for macOS Catalina. Host is i5-2540m , macOS Mojave. Guest is MacOS 8.6. The game was expanded from .toast to 2GB HFS+ disk image within SheepShaver. Actually, I only opened ...

Re: Run Mac OS 7 or 8 in BasiliskII directly in the WEB BROW

Dont want to debase the work of the makers of the Java Script Basilisk II build. I just feel that the .js based emulator has very limited options and it is slow. As posted over at Macintoshgarden, you may easily see the difference on an old Windows rig: https://macintoshgarden.org/forum/in-the-news-...

Exactly. You may use the System 6.img (or the MacOS7.5.3.dsk) as you wish. __MACOSX is a left over of the default OSX/maOS Zip app, which should be deleted. The file is invisible with OSX btw.

Re: QEMU Mouse Not Responding

Rosetta was part of OSX up to 10.6 Snow Leopard. I did try with 10.5 as I have a running instance anyway. To install 10.5 or 10.6 on a modern Mac, you want a virtualisation engine like VirtualBox or VMWare Fusion. To install OSX, the Server version is needed. https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/mac-os-...

I would not know where to start either with Strata. No manual, no models... 32bit Quickdraw was needed for the early colour capable Macs, like the Mac II. I think it was on a separate floppy for installation. If you want to stick with System 6, feel free to look here: https://macintoshgarden.org/app...

Yes. No dice with MacOS 7.5.3 and SheepSaver.
BlankLadder3 can be opened via 3DMF Viewer after installing QT3D, but that was not the question.;)
Looks like QemuPPC is the only way to run the app. The pict above is from MacOS 9.2.
