BasiliskII builds for Mac OS X, links and downloads

Post by Ronald P. Regensburg »

Currently recommended BasiliskII builds for MacOSX/OSX/macOS:

SDL2 port, 22 September 2020, 64-bit, notarized from github.com/kanjitalk755/macemu source
For macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) through 10.15 (Catalina)
Download: https://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/Ba ... 200922.zip

This build:
Adds two advanced features:
- Option to enlarge the window while preserving guest screen resolution
- Option to pass on guest gamma settings to the host
See SheepShaver setup manual for information about advanced features here: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sh ... uilds_only
With the exception of "hardwarecursor" and "cpuclock", these features are also available in BasiliskII SDL2 builds.

If you have an existing BasiliskII setup, you can simply replace the application with the new application.
If you use an older BasiliskII_keycodes file, you will also need to replace that file with this new one: http://ronaldpr.home.xs4all.nl/basilisk ... ycodes.zip

For a new setup a BasiliskIIGUI application is needed.
BasiliskIIGUI is 32-bit only. It can be used up to macOS 10.14 (Mojave).
Download: https://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/BasiliskIIGUI.zip
A public beta version of a 64-bit Basilisk II GUI application is available. It can be used in macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and later.
See this forum topic: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10454
For creating HFS disk image files, see also HFSUtilsGUI below.

SDL2 port, 4 May 2019, 64-bit only from github.com/kanjitalk755/macemu source
For Intel Mac, MacOSX 10.7 (Lion) through macOS 10.12 (Sierra)
Download: http://ronaldpr.home.xs4all.nl/basilisk ... 190504.zip

If you have an existing BasiliskII setup, you can simply replace the application with the new application.
If you use an older BasiliskII_keycodes file, you will also need to replace that file with this new one: http://ronaldpr.home.xs4all.nl/basilisk ... ycodes.zip

Older builds
A variety of older builds can be found in the post below.

BasiliskII Disk Image Chooser (with thanks to our member "emendelson")
Selecting and managing disk image files can be done in the volumes list in the old BasiliskIIGUI, but this AppleScript application is easier to use for that purpose.
Originally introduced in this topic: http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewto ... f=6&t=5455
Download: http://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/Bas ... hooser.zip

HFSUtilsGUI (with thanks to our member "sentient06")
Creates HFS (and HFS+) disk image files. Still works in macOS 10.15 Catalina.

When I posted my March 2014 build I hoped to bring some order in all the various BasiliskII builds floating around. But it appeared that some games suffer from extreme stuttering in that build. Those games do run smoothly in builds by vasi, though.

Discussion in this topic: http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewto ... f=6&t=8297

Here are all the builds made available publicly between 2009 and 2014:

1. Compiled from cebix/macemu source:

October 2009 UB build by me (10.4 and up), with PPC-only GUI included:
http://www.xs4all.nl/~ronaldpr/basilisk ... 091004.zip

October 2011 builds by vasi (10.6 and up, 32-bit):
BasiliskII: https://github.com/downloads/vasi/b2gui ... I-10.6.zip
BasiliskIIGUI: https://github.com/downloads/vasi/b2gui ... I-10.6.zip

March 2013 builds by vasi (10.6 and up, 32-bit, with sparsebundle support):
BasiliskII: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/krq4jq9dsrem ... II.app.zip
BasiliskIIGUI: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/krq4jq9dsrem ... UI.app.zip

March 2014 build by me (10.6 and up, 32-bit, with sparsebundle, cursor grabbing toggle, and window-fullscreen toggle support) now with October 2011 GUI included.
http://www.xs4all.nl/~ronaldpr/basilisk ... 140301.zip


2. Compiled from dsumorok/macemu source:

July 2013 builds by Cat_7 with with special support for simplified AppleTalk setup on wired networks. These builds are for 10.8 and up, are 64-bit, and have sparsebundle, cursor grabbing toggle, window-fullscreen toggle support. See topic: http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewto ... f=6&t=8067
Cat_7 notes: These builds do not stem from the official source code repository and will most likely not be updated when the official source code changes.

01-03-2014: Posted the new March 1, 2014 build.
02-03-2014: Replaced the included GUI in the download. (The originally included March 2013 GUI erroneously depends on external X11-related files.)
02-03-2014: Added list of all publicly available builds since 2009.
03-03-2014: Added link to current discussion.
10-08-2016: Removed outdated comment that the 2013 GUI build will only run with X11/XQuartz installed.

Posted a new notarized SDL2 port build, built with SDL2 2.0.9. The previous notarized build was created with SDL2 2.0.10 and appeared to have a serious CapsLock issue.
