Re: SheepShaver on macOS Big Sur

You can put the SheepShaver folder anywhere you like, any place that is convenient for you.

Re: Opens fine, but only after dozens of launch crashes

The Unix "volume" is not a real disk or volume. It is a special feature that connects to your shared folder. Finder Info about capacity and used/available space are fixed values that have no relation to the actual capacity etc. The Desktop folder in your shared folder is invisible in "...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

About Option versus Command: Your assumption cannot be correct. You can check this in Key Caps: With the key with keycode 58 pressed, you should get many more alternative characters you can type. Then that is the Option key With the key with keycode 55 pressed, the letter keys should not change. The...

And here about Portuguese and Brazilian ABNT/ABNT2 keyboards: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portugues ... ard_layout
Your Chromebook keyboard differs in that it is missing the Logo keys on a regular ABNT/ABNT2 keyboard.

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

Also, there is a mistake in your BasiliskII_keycodes file. In the SDL2 for X11: (1) the keycode for COMMAND and OPTION are inverted. Should be OPTION=55 and COMMAND=58. No, the Mac keycode for Option is 58 and the Mac keycode for Command is 55. Maybe you mixed up the names for the Mac modifier keys...

Re: Opens fine, but only after dozens of launch crashes

Well, you can see from the preferences which is which. Session 1.cdr 724.2Mb is a CD image file, possibly created by yourself, that is currently not used. OS9.img is probably downloaded at first setup from Redundant Robot, judging by the name and the small size. If it is that file, it contains only ...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

In Key Caps Mac dead keys are indicated with a grey or dotted border around the key. For instance the tilde to the right of the ç. That key followed by the n will produce ñ. And that same key with the shift key followed by a i will produce î.

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

The Brazilian keyboard layout I provided is for a Brazilian Portugese keyboard. It may differ from a European Portugese keyboard, like there are differences between US English, British English, Canadian English, and Australian English keyboards.

Have you tried this yourself in Catalina or Big Sur and used the images with SheepShaver or BasiliskII? For imaging the HFS volume, sudo dd works fine. I posted that here earlier: https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10709 (I also linked to that post from the SheepShaver setup m...

Re: Opens fine, but only after dozens of launch crashes

There are many reasons why SheepShaver can, or even will always, crash on launch or during startup. These have been discussed here again and again over the years in various topics. But none apply to what you experience. Restarting should work normally. It can be used for instance after making change...

OK. I read back in the thread and noticed that you used the 4 May 2019 build. I missed the upgrade to the latest build for Intel. So far, I really have no idea what could be the issue with your setup. I am involved with SheepShaver since 2006 and I never before heard of anything like this. It is sim...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

The keycodes file works fine for all standard ISO and ANSI keyboards for any language. The problem is that the ChromeBook has its own non-standard keyboard. Which keyboard layout do you use now in BasiliskII? I will see if I can suggest a few changes, but not all will work. I doubt that the Chrome S...

Re: Opens fine, but only after dozens of launch crashes

1. You have both scale_integer and scale_nearest set to true, so I suppose you use a Retina screen. Right?

2. Try upgrading to the 21 April 2021 build, which is recommended for OSX 10.9 through macOS 11.

Will hdiutil in sudo mode work to create a CD image file in Catalina and later?

I am not very knowledgeable with Terminal commands.
Exactly which would be the commands to use?

Re: SheepShaver Wrapper on macOS Big Sur

The way to create a disk image with Disk Utility is described in the SheepShaver setup manual: Choose format DVD/CD master (or read/write not encrypted). The interesting part here is that apparently one can create a working disk image from a HFS (not HFS+) CD-ROM in Disk Utility in Big Sur when logg...

In the keycodes file in the download, remove the sdl x11 header from these lines: # sdl x11 sdl dga The X.Org Foundation change to # sdl dga The X.Org Foundation Then the keycodes file should provide the correct translations for a SDL2 build. (Both SDL1 and SDL2 translations were in the file with th...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

It appears difficult to make myself understandable. I'l try again. 1. A BasiliskII build compiled with SDL2 will generate SDL2 scancodes. 2. Builds from kanjitalk755 contain features that are not available on builds from other sources, some of which (like the possibility to re-map modifier keys) may...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

The existing keycodes files are not yet edited for use with SDL2 builds. We need the header that should be used for Linux/X11 SDL2 builds. The existing Linux/X11 headers are not for SDL2. The content of the keycodes file will be ignored without the needed header. SDL 2.0.14 should be fine for compil...

Re: Keycodes file for Windows with latest code?

I studied the picture of your keyboard better. It will be difficult, to use your keyboard in BasiliskII. At least you need more modifier keys. If we can assign both Option and Command to keys on your keyboard (will depend on the BasiliskII build), there is still the issue of the missing compatible k...

I do not know which keycodes files you use or tried. In the newer versions, I added scancode to keycode translations for SDL2 SheepShaver and BasiliskII builds on macOS and Windows hosts. For Linux and X11 those translations are not yet available. Adding those translations may only need a new header...
