2 CD / ISO-games on SheepShaver

Sat Apr 06, 2019 8:37 pm

So I managed to install Mac OS X 9 on SheepShaver. I also managed to create disk images of the CD Roms of the 1997 game, "Backpacker 2" I want to play. I even managed to install and play the game.

But: This is a two CD game, and I need to switch CD (or disk image) in the middle of the game.
Is it possible to do this in SheepShaver?

I have created a volume of the disk images of both CDs in the preferences. How do I get the program to realize the other CD is already mounted?

I understand that you added both image files to the volumes list in preferences and that for both you checked the "CDROM" box. Then they will both be mounted on the SheepShaver desktop as a CD.

If this does not work, the only alternative I can think of is using the old workaround with the Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility to mount images as CD-ROM from within the emulated machine while it is running. The procedure is described in the old setup manual: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sh ... isk_images
