Build universal BasiliskII on an Intel Mac

Thanks to kanjitalk755's superb work, it is now possible to create a universal build of BasiliskII on an Intel Mac. The basic instructions are here, under "How to Build" https://github.com/kanjitalk755/macemu but I didn't understand how to make the instructions work correctly until kanjita...

Re: Standalone SheepShaver/OS 9 for Windows and OS X/macOS

In response to a post on the forum a few weeks ago, I've updated the Windows version of this system so you can drop a disk image file on the application, and MacOS9 will start up with the dropped disk image mounted (during this one session only). The macOS version of this system already had this abi...

Re: Standalone SheepShaver for OS X (add ROM and OS 8.5-9.0.4)

Updated today with kanjitalk755's CapsLock fix and mabam's improved GetResolutions routine. I've also updated the SheepShaver Wrapper and my System761 app.

Re: Mac OS 9 Connections CD Images Won't Mount

You might check where the entry in your start menu is actually pointing to. Is it pointing to the GUI in a old SheepShaver folder? I have no recollection of any SheepShaver package containing an installer that would put an entry in the start menu. Did you put it there yourself? If I remember correc...

Re: Standalone SheepShaver for OS X (add ROM and OS 8.5-9.0.4)

I'll add that to the code for the next update. Since my own AppleScript is totally amateurish and redundant and spaghetti-like, it's good to have some parts of it that work efficiently. Thank you!

I had the same issue on my iMac 5k and have somewhat solved it. I am no expert on this and have never played with applescript but looking through the code it looks like it tries to get the resolution of your monitors from the system report accessed from the about this mac dialogue. I think the way ...

Re: SheepShaver Wrapper on macOS Big Sur

I'm the person who wrote the SheepShaver Wrapper, which is written in AppleScript. The internets tell me that you can't run an AppleScript as root. So, if you insist on trying this, you'll need a standalone SheepShaver setup, not the SheepShaver Wrapper. Anyway, as Adespoton says, you'll be a lot be...

Re: Standalone SheepShaver for OS X (add ROM and OS 8.5-9.0.4)

That means that the "Retina" error is produced by the AppleScript that launches Mac OS 9, not by SheepShaver itself. The SheepShaver application inside the Mac OS 9 application will not launch from the taskbar; that's exactly the way it's supposed to work. The two error messages that you s...

A complete puzzle. The word "Retina" isn't anywhere in the AppleScript launcher or, apparently, in the SheepShaver code.

Please download the current version of the Mac OS 9 application and let us know whether it shows the same error. You can keep the one you have in a different folder in case you want to preserve it.

Re: Standalone SheepShaver for OS X (add ROM and OS 8.5-9.0.4)

Possibly, but I can't figure out where "Retina" comes from. It's not in the AppleScript and it doesn't seem to be returned from any of the shell scripts run by the AppleScript. To the original poster: Are you trying to run SheepShaver full-screen, or (the default) in a window. The more det...
