Installation and setup (All builds/versions)
If you have an existing SheepShaver setup, you can simply replace the application with the new application.
If you set up SheepShaver for the first time, you will also need a compatible ROM file and a retail MacOS install CD (or a install CD disk image).
For other than US English keyboard layouts the included keycodes file is needed.
The included SheepShaver Scripts can be used to delete the prefs and nvram files to be able to start a new setup from scratch.

Setup manual
See the setup manual for more information.

February 2014 build for PPC Macs: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sh ... _setup_old


Some new features and improvements in the July 2018 builds:

Mount images as CD-ROM
It is now possible to specify in SheepShaver Preferences (the settings window) which disk images in the volumes list will be mounted as CD-ROM. No need anymore to lock the disk image file, no need to perform a workaround with the Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility.

Issue with this new feature:
Unintended behavior when you try to remove/eject a virtual CD-ROM from within SheepShaver which under some circumstances can only be resolved by quitting SheepShaver. This issue can be avoided by only adding and removing disk images as CD-ROM in preferences (the settings window).
(As always: After a change in settings quit SheepShaver and launch it again for the change to take effect.)

Display improvements
False color issues after hiding or minimizing SheepShaver window solved.

Better behavior with window/full-screen toggle (Control-Return). Especially in the 2.5 version the improvements are spectacular with SheepShaver in full-screen mode compatible with Mission Control and swiping between spaces.
