Re: Help me choose the best emulator

Your dad or you do have the choice. Both apps run fine with MiniVMac II, Basilisk II and SheepShaver. If you should need Mac HD floppy support, Basilisk II Build 142 may be worth considering. Build 142 would also allow using the PPC 7100/80 HDD, given you could add a SCSI HBA to the W10 rig. Setting...

Re: New to Mini vMac

Usually I am creating disk images for the use in MinVMac.
Which games do you miss, especially?
I feel that disk images with the games could be added to the matching pages, if needed.

Re: Emulator Consultant needed

Good point Jorpho, that breakout box. I did connect two PCs with built in COM1 ports via null-modem cable. Mac side: Optiplex 755, Windows 10, Basilisk II B142. PC side: Portégé 7010CT, Windows 98SE.

Re: What is the best Mac ROM to use?

FPU is the Floating Point Unit, once on a separate chip like the Motorola 68881. The Motorola 680X0 could load off math calculations to a dedicated number cruncher that way. As for the ROM, I never saw an advantage in emulation using different ROMs like Performa or Quadra ROM. Basilisk II does heavy...

Fired up my old T60 with Windows 10, as it still has a COM port at the dock. That way I could talk to another Windows 10 rig via ZTerm from Basilisk II Build 142, the one Cat_7 kindly made available. From SheepShaver, ZTerm could not open a COM port. My guess is that COM ports were depreciated over ...

Re: Copying files to Windows

Thats weird, never had hidden Mac files on the Windows side.
Could it be that certain file types are hidden from user land in the Windows folder settings?
Maybe move over something Windows knows like a .doc, .txt, .jpg file to see what happens.

This branch of Putty has ZModem capabilties incorporated.

Re: Full Screen in videogames with Basilisk II

Games like PoP were designed to run on small Mac CRT monitors. Sadly there is no way to make the game run with a higher resolution. Some games do upscale in Basilisk II when switching to full screen, but some don´t. What you might try, is setting your monitor to a supported VESA mode like 800x600. I...

Re: Get data and apps, everything, off Mac Classic

There are HFS utils for GNU/Linux, but I had little luck with them. For file transfer of apps over foreign file systems you want to make .sit files of your apps beforehand. As you have a PC with SCSI HBA, Basilisk II Build 142 may be worth a try. BII 142 does handle Mac SCSI drives fine, the biggest...

Re: Relaunching the same app after quitting it causes a cras

I do recall such behaviour - from real Macs and emulated ones. My guess is that some apps do not free the system resources upon quitting as they should, lazy programming may be one reason. At second start there are remains in RAM the app wants to allocate again - dang. There is a small app to flush ...

Re: Classic 9.2.2 / Pinball Big Race USA - QEMU - OS X Catal

Exactly. My guess would be missing GPU support. ;)
No way around that, except with an old Mac booting MacOS9 it seems.
Maybe Classic emulation in Tiger or lower would work too.
