Hello all,

I just installed Basilisk II for my Windows 10. It opens fine and runs. I have no idea how to put game software onto this emulator. Perhaps it is very simple but it is not immediately apparent to me specifically. If anyone could help me on this matter, it would be most appreciated. I have the game .sit file downloaded.

Thanks

Good wording "immediately apparent". :)
On Windows hosts, .sit files are best inflated with Stuffit Expander on the Macs emulated "hard drive".
There are a fewStuffit versions hosted at MacintoshGarden, IIRC version 5 was the last 68k one matching Basilisk II.

The free Stuffit Expander will serve the same purpose. Third DL here: http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/stuffit-expander-55

If you come across a sit file that refuses to open with Stuffit 5, let me know.
I did add zipped img game files for emulators at MacintoshGarden from time to time.

Ok, I see where stuffit is on the Mac emulator while it's running. How do I get my .sit file onto the mac 'hardrive'?

Using either the shared folder which should show up as a separate drive on the desktop, or via network connectivity after enabling that in BII. Note that BII won't show the shared folder if you're using 7.1 or earlier; if you use 7.5.3, it should show up if you've got it configured.

[edit] you can also use HFV Explorer to create and open a disk image, copy stuff onto that, and then add the disk image to your disk list for the emulator.

This probably ins't the correct thread, but I see you're very knowledgeable and helpful and I was wondering if you can help me to install a game on my MacOS. I setup the emulator just fine and downloaded the 2 .sit files for Titanic: Adventure in Time and put them in my shared folder, along with Stuffit. I moved Stuffit and Titanic1.sit onto the other hard drive (MacOS753), installed Stuffit, but Titanic2.sit is too large to fit with those files as I set the MacOS753 to a max of 1000mb per instructions. I tried unpacking Titanic1.sit for now but clicking on it or dropping in on top of Stuffit, yields no results. Got any ideas?

You can probably get away with a much larger virtual disk; 13GB should be enough for anything. Smaller disk sizes are just for when people are having problems with the larger ones -- but the problem is usually with the way the disk is formatted, not its size (unless you're doing terabytes).
