Hi,

That could very well be, as SheepShaver patches the rom. The rom you are trying to use might not have the bits that need patching in the same place as other roms that do work.

So best to stick to the known-to-work roms.

In that case, did you make sure to actually select (click on) the built-in option in the sound control panel?

You'd need to upload your screen shot to some image/file sharing site and then link to it to have it show up here.

From https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... =840977089 :
1995-08-01 96CD923D dfebb8fdad4124e02608429d98bf349b Power Macintosh 7200, Power Macintosh 7500, Power Macintosh 8500, Power Macintosh 9500 (v1) 7.5.2(SE701)-9.1 512M-1.5G 4M PowerPC 601 Tsunami, Nitro, TNT, Catalyst This ROM is unstable when used with SheepShaver. Try turning on the 'ignoresegv' option and/or disabling JIT if you run into problems.
Let me know if I need to update this note. It makes sense that there may be audio issues with this ROM, as it's already known to be unstable with SS.

I'd be interested to know what the experts here make of the Sheepshaver 'Deluxe' pack that is up on the Internet Archive.

Well, it is obviously a "enhanced" download of a build I created for our forum. And a bad one at that, as it contains the preferences from the uploader's running system and a now obsolete gtk development package that was once needed to run the GUI ;-)
6Gb for a lot of Apple commercials and some software is steep....

The build date corresponds to an older build I created, and the readme about the keycodes was added by me.
While there is a referral to the website from which the included rom was taken, there is no such referral to our site. Oh well, no-one is prohibited to download and redistribute.
