Re: SheepShaver not respecting window size

Ah, yes, emendelson is right. I forgot that one. If the resolution in Monitors (or equivalent) control panel is set to one of the preset lower resolutions, the window will return to that size during startup.

Re: SheepShaver not respecting window size

- What is your MBP's screen resolution? - Do you set Maximum x Maximum with window or fullscreen? - After changing settings, do you save and shut down SheepShaver? - Do you have scale_nearest true scale_integer true set in the prefs file? As far as I know windowmodes and screenmodes in prefs do noth...

Re: Full screen scaling

Setting the resolution in the GUI to exactly half your screen resolution (1280 x 720) will get you in fullscreen mode scaling twice that will fill all of your screen.

Not really. It will get you 2560 x 1440 without scaling.

Re: SheepShaver performance ?.

You do mention your host processor but not the host OS, nor the SheepShaver build you are using (downloaded from here or compiled yourself).

Re: problems installing game-file not found

Always give detailed information about your setup. Otherwise it is impossible to give a proper answer. From your other posts I understand that you have SheepShaver running on a Mac with macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) and that you own games on "disks". I suppose that you mean CD-ROMs. From the S...

Re: Full screen scaling

Well, yes, but the question is not clear. @centris610 There are two possibilities available in BasiliskII: 1. In the GUI set Width x Height to Maximum x Maximum. That will provide fullscreen display without enlargement. 2. In the prefs file add the lines: scale_nearest true scale_integer true On a h...

I am not sure what you are asking for. Do you want to run BasiliskII not filling the screen, at the size of the window, but with large black borders around it?

Re: Option request - window title

Then it would be nice if the VMs name would be used for the window title, without the need to edit the prefs file. But I doubt that is possible. That would probably be the best possible solution, IMHO. Let the virtual disk's name determine the name of the SheepShaver window running the relevant ver...

Re: Sheepshaver crash booting fullscreen

You turned fullscreen on while playing Simcity 2000? Does that mean that you used control-return to switch from window mode to fullscreen mode? That should not change the setting to startup SheepShaver in window mode, so I see no connection with problems at startup. If you changed settings to start ...

Re: Odd full screen behavior in version 2.5 (7 Feb '21)

Expected behaviour with SDL2 2.0.16 on a non-Metal Mac, any Mac that was introduced earlier than late 2012. As this issue is really minor, a cosmetic issue that will last no longer than one second, during full-screen launch only, and only on Macs that are at least 8 years old, I think this change ca...

Re: Sheepshaver and Big Sur

One should always disable the default 'Open "safe" files after downloading' in Safari preferences. The setting is probably intended for convenience but many consider it to be not safe.

If you do not have backups of your virtual harddrive, I think there is not much else you can do than starting over again.

Please tell us which which BasiliskII build (build date!) you use. I followed the tutorial to install a Sys 7.5.3 and some games a month ago. Which tutorial did you follow? Several vitally important settings are not as described in our setup manual: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/basiliskii_os...

This is from the original request by adespoton (bold accentuation by me): Reason for the request is that I used to hack the binary to replace SheepShaver with the OS version being run, so I could easily tell between two different instances running at the same time in Mission Control. But now that we...
