Now that kanjitalk755's BasiliskII code runs in 64-bit mode, I've put together a preliminary version of a complete System 7.6.1 setup like my earlier SheepShaver-based Mac OS 9 app. As with my Mac OS 9 app, you can print from the System761 app to your default macOS printer or any other macOS printer, and you can create a PDF file on the host desktop from a document running in the System761 app. If you drop a file on the System761 icon, the file will be copied to the System761 desktop.

Forum rules forbid direct links to prebuilt systems, so do this search in Google:

and look for the note on System 7.6.1. If you've visited that page recently, you may need to refresh your browser.

I just wanted to say thanks for this!

I'm using it for FreeHand, SuperPaint and more.

There's still a lot of WordPerfect stuff on the included drive.

yes of course, just thought you might want to prune OT to be more generic given you do a separate WP appliance.

Thank you for this System761 app. It works fine for me with MacOS Sierra and I could open many old Mac files and export in pdf. Very useful.

Just a question: is it possible to increase the size of the Mac68k HD ?? I would need more than the ca 338MB. Thanks for your answer.

You can't increase the disk size, but you can create another disk in the system, copy the first disk to the second while running Basilisk II and then delete the first disk. But this won't be easy because of the way the system works. The file that you'll need to modify to get this done is the .sh file deep inside the BasiliskII app inside the System761.app.

I'll probably replace the existing system with one with a larger disk in the next few weeks, though, and I'll announce it here.

Question for the forum: what is the largest disk size usable with System 7.6.1? Because this system uses a sparsebundle, a larger disk won't cause a much larger download.

Im usually going with 2GB disk images for BII and SS.
Not because thats a limit, but for ease of exchange on different host OS.
I had 30GB images mounted with the emulators too - HFS, not HFS+ but most users will never need more than 10GB presumably.
Here are some disk images collected, but you will prefer your own ones likely.

I just now replaced the original image with a 1GB image. If I had read your message before I started, I would have made it 2GB, and I'll get around to replacing it with a 2GB image sooner or later. Meanwhile, the current upload has a 1GB disk image, and is only a slightly larger download than the previous one.

With the sparsebundle format, there's almost no downside to using a larger image, and the script I use to run BII compacts the sparsebundle after each run.

I've been using 1GB sparsebundles in my own wrappers, but like 24bit, I tend not to go above 2gb. 4gb *should* work, but may cause issues in edge cases -- 2gb should always be safe.

Thank you for this improvement. I did install the new version (18-11-29 @ 14:14) and could load now up to ca 900MB in the main HD without problem. Have a nice WE. GC
