Our member munkymajic developed a brand new basilisk II GUI. The development process and testing could be followed in another topic. Now a public beta version is available to use and test.

It should work in OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) through macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
Note: The app is not yet signed or notarized, so one must use the Finder contextual menu (right-click or control-click) to open it the first time.

Download: https://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/Basilisk%20II%20GUI%200.14f.zip

The developer asked me to add the md5 checksum: 88a817a333206cd99bb0e5738ed15b94
He also would appreciate it if you clicked the "BETA" button to read the EULA.

Is the "Create" button supposed to be greyed out? When will that functionality be available?

This is a first beta, not yet even version 1.0, not all planned features are available yet.

If you want to add a new empty volume, you can use Disk Utility to create an empty HFS+ read/write image and add that file to the volumes list in the GUI. When you then launch BasiliskII, you will be asked to initialize the new volume. When you do that, it will be formatted Standard HFS.

This is great. It even helped me figure out what was wrong with the high CPU usage/temperature problem on Catalina (See my thread for details).

I only have one suggestion and I don't think it'll be too difficult to implement.
There's at the moment no way to re-order disk images, so if you want to change your boot volume (which I used to do in the old Carbon app by dragging things around in the list) you still have to edit the config file manually in TextEdit.
Apart from that, it's perfect. No glitches to report.

Yes, that would be a nice future feature.

In the meantime, our member emendelson created the "Basilisk II Disk Image Chooser", a nice little script utility for managing the volumes list.

Is there a Catalina version of this? I just tossed my copy because it's cursed with the (\) overlay.

I suppose this is about the Disk Image Chooser?
It is an AppleScript application. You could try opening it in Script Editor and Saving it again.

Yes, it is... I guess I should prod emendelson on this one; I seem to recall we had a chat about some of the other applescript tools he and I have done in the past. I just wanted to ensure that the one he's currently providing is Catalina-proof, as the version I had was not. I don't actually use it, just had it for testing.

Here's a notarized version. I haven't tested it under Catalina because I don't have a standard BasiliskII setup running in Catalina, but I suppose it should work. Can't hurt to try:

Ronald, if we hear that this works under Catalina, could you host it here?

No one tried the notarized "Basilisk II Disk Image Chooser" in Catalina yet?

There is a new Basilisk II GUI beta build, now with the possibility to re-arrange the disk images in the volumes list by dragging!

The link got broken by the forum software. This should work:

https://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/Basilisk%20II%20GUI%200.14f.zip

And the program looks very, very fine! Well done.

Edit (by Ronald): Not the forum software, but my mistake. I forgot that the file name contains spaces. I corrected the links. Thanks.

I don't know if I am stupid or what, I have managed to emulate a mac on an Amiga back in the 1990's, but this seems a bit difficult.

-basilisk ii folder is in my home folder, and inside that is a Shared folder (with the .smi and .part files)
-I have created the hfs+ image as suggested, and followed the basilisk ii guides.

-I have the quadra rom file added

-I have added the mascsartupos7.img file in the volumes, as well as the hfs+ .dmg image
-i have disabled sound just to be safe
-resolution is 800x600
-68040 selected and 16 mb ram

-The "start" button is grayed out
-If I start basiliskii independently, the emulation starts with a question mark appearing on a picture of disk, like it would like to have a disk inserted.

-Not quite sure what to do next. Please educate me? I would really like to make this work!

-my macOs is 10.14.5 mojave ,retina macbook air 2018 version

Thank you,

Ilkka, from Finland

Your issues are not about the new BasiliskII GUI, but about how to set up BasiliskII.
Apparently, you did not follow our setup guide: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/ba ... _osx_setup

If you had,
- you would have downloaded the "DiskTools_MacOS8" image as startup disk
- you would not have created a hfs+ volume (System 7.5.3 will not run on hfs+) but you would have created a volume using the GUi app.
- you would also have created an Installer Parts volume using the GUI.

Follow our setup guide.
- The new GUI looks different, but all the same settings are there.
- The Start button is not yet available in this beta GUI. Instead Save the settings, quit the GUI, and Launch BasiliskII itself.
- You can ignore the JIT Compiler settings. JIT is not available in current BasiliskII builds.
