Re: Using Mac OS 9.app

I would like to know what is the safest way to store personal files used by Classic. I managed to transfer a file from OSX to Classic, but I would like to know where this file used by Classic is stored, for a backup strategy . In addition, I created a volume "MyVolume" usable by Classic thanks to t...

And, as you know (but other people might not), that "Windows Support Alert" message is a total scam.

Re: Getting Files from my MacII si to my Basillisk System 7

But how can the original poster get the extension into his Basilisk system if he can't use the shared folder? (I'm not being difficult - it just isn't clear to me how it can be done.)

Cutomized forum?

I don't want to add to the burdens of the admins, who already have more than enough to keep them busy, but is there any hope of a customized bulletin board, like the old one? It was one of the best-looking forums on the net.

Re: ROM to ISO for 64 Windows

If you want something easier, search the web for (using quotation marks): "a similar system that runs system 7.6.1" This will lead you a page where you can download a one-click BasiliskII setup for Windows. Forum rules rightly forbid a direct link to anything that contains an Apple OS. If your antiv...

ResEdit, but Resorcerer doesn't seem to make it any easier. Your idea sounds excellent - anything you can do to help put it into effect will be gratefully received.

Re: No sound in SheepShaver (Mac OS 9 for Windows)

emendelson, since you're pre-loading the OS into your app anyway, would it make sense to go in with ResEdit and remove the Restart menu line from the Finder? That way, people can't restart, and many SS issues will be avoided. You could also rename "Shut Down" to "Quit and Save Settings" if you want...

Re: No sound in SheepShaver (Mac OS 9 for Windows)

I changed the path to the alias to the same path as indicated in the WinPath.txt file with :Transfer appended to it (I used the set new original button in the Get Info dialog) and the problem was solved. That is the same change I made to the last installation. That tells me exactly what I needed to...

Re: No sound in SheepShaver (Mac OS 9 for Windows)

You're right about the name of the script; similar scripts have different names in my different systems. I think "background" is in the name of the script in the Mac version of this. I have three or four separate systems that use this kind of background script; they've been working on other people's...

I'd be very happy to deal with it if I knew what I was dealing with. When you wrote your message where you reported that you had no more errors, I was in fact writing a message suggesting that you might want to debug the background script to find exactly where it failed. (The simplest way would be t...

Re: No sound in SheepShaver (Mac OS 9 for Windows)

The alias in the System Folder is simply there for my convenience when I want to open the script itself in the editor. It has no other function, and doesn't need to be there at all. The script is called something like "Background Actions Script" to indicate that it is supposed to run in the backgrou...

Re: No sound in SheepShaver (Mac OS 9 for Windows)

I can't reproduce the problems, so I'm afraid I can do nothing to help. You should probably find another way to run SheepShaver. No one is forcing you to use this one, and there's probably no reason why you should waste your time with a system that doesn't work for you. I strongly urge you to use so...

Well, that's my setup, and I can't reproduce the problem with the startup items folder.

Re: No sound in SheepShaver/Mac OS 9

I think the post to which you're responding may refer to my Mac OS 9 for Windows system. I got an email today about a similar problem with the startup script in that system, a problem that I can't reproduce. If this is in fact my system, then the SheepShaver build in it is one that I made with MinGW...

Re: SheepShaver Won't Start on 10.15.6, Even With "Mac OS RO

The SheepShaver Wrapper issue has nothing to do with SheepShaver, but about the AppleScript wrapper. You might try moving the application to another folder (like your desktop) or using a different ROM file. In fact, both the issues that you describe could result from having the wrong ROM file (or a ...

Re: Sound option greyed out with SimpleText 7.6.1

Open the Extensions Manager control panel. Add a check mark next to Sound. Click Restart. You will now see the Sound control panel, but it won't enable sound in SimpleText. I have no idea of how to enable sound in SimpleText in that system. If anyone else knows, could you post the method here? EDIT:...
