Build kanjitalk755 code under Windows?

Post by emendelson »

Before I spend a lot of time re-inventing the wheel, here's a question:

Has anyone built kanjitalk755's macemu code (for SS and BII) under Windows? If so, is there any hope that you might post a tutorial?

Thank you!

Well, that turned out to be a lot easier than I expected. Essentially, the wiki gives the method, but it's a lot simpler with kanjitalk755's code than the original code.

SheepShaver seems very slow (even with JIT turned on), compared to the download on this site, but I'll try to experiment.

If anyone wants a building guide, I'll try to write one.

Certainly, our building guide needs an update!

Best,

My SheepShaver build for Windows does not support JIT compiler.
If making JIT enabled forcibly, it will crash.
But JIT version can be downloaded from this forum.
I'd be pleased to know which source (Git commit ID) is used for the JIT version.

OK - Thank you for explaining that. I'll make it clear when I prepare a compiling guide.

I spoke too soon. When I built kanjitalk755's BasiliskII code in Windows, I wasn't able to make a static-build version. It only ran because C:\MinGW\bin was in my PATH.

I'll continue to work on this, but I'm not sure I'll be able to solve it.

I have changed BII/SS build for Windows to static linked.
The size will increase, but it will be more convenient.

Thank you, kanjitalk755. That worked perfectly. I'll post a building guide in the BasiliskII forum.
