Why can SheepShaver only open so many apps?

Post by Temporary Joe »

This happened with Basilisk too, but generally, SheepShaver can only open one or two applications, like if you quit something and reopen it, or open a different application, you tend to get a Bomb with Error 7 or Error 11 or undefined. I'm sure I'm not the only one that notices this, and it's not a huge thing, but why does this happen with emulators? Is it just the way the virtual RAM and hard disk are accessed?
