System 6

Post by WizKid »

Is it possible to install System 6.0.8 in Basilisk II using the IIci system type?

If so, is there something like a ".b2vm" bundle like there's ".sheepvm" for SheepShaver?

You need to recompile BII to run System 6. When you do, a number of things break, but you can run System 6 in 24-bit mode with a B&W screen. I believe you can now use the IIci system type (and 68020 CPU), but the screen is still limited in dimension and bit depth. I think audio may also be broken, but can't remember.

I do my app bundles for BII by embedding everything in a shell script and dropping the components in a bundle. Not quite as elegant as .sheepvm, but pretty close.

I recently improved BII virtual screen by stealing ROM hack from mini vMac. You could have a bigger virtual real estate in System 6.

But the sound has not patched yet.

There is an App for that!

I shared my configuration. It works for System 6.0.8 with Mac SE ROM (md5sum : 9fb38bdcc0d53d9d380897ee53dc1322)

I bumped up the screen size to 1280x500. You can set an arbitrary one assuming you pull the source code from cebix Github.

Code: Select all
