Re: Ways SheepShaver's performance could be improved?

As far as injection method... no need to create an OS 9 extension. Just inject a few hooks into the ROM handling routine so that the instructions hit the hooks before being passed to the OS -- I believe Mini vMac already does this kind of thing for a few operations.

Re: Announcing Enhanced File Catalogs for Mac GUI Vault

Looking good... my how time flies. I can remember when that project was in the design stages, and now it's 5 years later.... One suggestion: in the display code, would 8-bit and higher characters be able to use their HTML markup equivalent, or enforce the MacRoman character encoding? all the bullets...

Re: Unable to launch Sheepshaver: This call is deprecated (.

Just so you know, I don't think that camera will even work under Classic -- you're going to have to run OS 9 on the bare metal to get it working. Of course, this is an excellent project for writing a serial <-> USB shim for SheepShaver that will let you connect a USB device and loop it through /dev/...

Re: Finder: Close parent folder by default?

There was a Google Summer of Code on integrating it a few years back, but it was never finished then. Now it...

Re: System 6 in Basilisk II?

Your best bet is the custom Mac II build of Mini vMac. Basilisk II doesn't emulate based on the ROM you use, and so may glitch for some ROMs that expect different hardware/etc. than BII emulates. Even in its beta state, Mini vMac is the second most stable Mac II emulator I've found (the first, if I ...

Re: Classic Wrapper

I am not sure how that is for SheepShaver on Windows, ROM files from 8.5/8.6 CD's may work, but ROM files copied from system install CD's, any version, do not work with SheepShaver for MacOSX.

Re: macromedia director 6.5 projectors crash with SS

Might be worth installing Macsbug so that you have the possibility of hitting the OS9 debugger when things die (no guarantees, but if it doesn't stop the crash, you'll know it's a bug in SS/BII code, not an issue in the runtime setup).
