Re: SheepShaver not respecting window size

Inside SheepShaver, running Mac OS 9 or whatever you're using, check the setting in the Screen or Monitor or similarly-named Control Panel.

Re: Claris Translator

Create a new larger disk; copy everything from the existing smaller disk into it. Remove the existing smaller disk from the system, and the system will boot from the new larger disk.

Re: Full screen scaling

Ah, yes! Interestingly, the smaller 800 x 600 still scales (though, much cleaner) while 1024 x 768 is 1:1. Regardless, much better than before. Thank you! 800x600 scales because it can be integer-scaled (exactly 2x 800 x 600 fits into your screen), while 1024x768 won't scale because it can't scale ...

Re: Cannot boot System 7.5.3 Not enough memory was available while using

Quick question: Is there a reason to run 7.5.3 rather than 7.5.5? You can find a pre-built, self-contained, reliable (I think) system running 7.5.5 under BII, by searching Google for system761 The first page in the search results (which I can't link to here because of forum policy) includes a refere...

Re: Option request - window title

I would use this simply as a reminder that I'm running System 7.5.3 or 7.6.1. Again, I think the point is that you need to have only one build of the application, and multiple VMs, each with a different title bar. They don't need to be running at the same time. With some DOS emulators, the title bar...

Yes, but adespoton's suggestion would let you use the same build for multiple configurations, but each configuration could have a different string in the title bar.

Re: HFV Explorer and file type mapping

You don't need HFS+ (HFS Extended) volumes for SheepShaver. SheepShaver works perfectly well with HFS volumes.

Re: HFV Explorer and file type mapping

That is the error message you get when you try to access an HFS+ volume (not original HFS, but HFS+) from Mac OS 8.0 or earlier versions; files on the HFS+ volume will only be visible from Mac OS 8.1 or later. Does this make sense in your situation?

Re: BasiliskII for Windows

Another point: I hope you'll consider adding a link to the fix that I described in the preceding post. The instructions in the wiki won't work for a new installation unless that fix is applied. Maybe this will be sorted out in the next version of the installer, but until then, the fix is necessary.

Thank you for that - and I should have found it myself. My mistake seems to have been to have believed what it says on the MSYS2 site and downloaded and installed the 64-bit version. Will remove and start over. Thank you again!

This seems to be a problem with SimpleText, not with SimpleText files.
