Run Mac OS 7 or 8 in BasiliskII directly in the WEB BROWSER!

Post by that-ben »

Run BasiliskII directly in your web browser thanks to the BasiliskII.js port by James Friend. You can play Sim City 2000 under Mac OS 7.5.3 here: https://www.macintoshrepository.org/emu ... 000URK.dsk or under Mac OS 8.1 here: https://www.macintoshrepository.org/emu ... 000URK.dsk

Emulated machine in the two links above is a Quadra 650 but more Mac models will be added to the page soon.

Quite a nifty way to instantly get your nostalgia vibe if you ask me!

So That-Ben... are you planning to integrate the JS version into your website?

Dont want to debase the work of the makers of the Java Script Basilisk II build.
I just feel that the .js based emulator has very limited options and it is slow.
As posted over at Macintoshgarden, you may easily see the difference on an old Windows rig:
