Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

I'm using the self-contained virtual machine setup. How about everyone else experiencing this symptom?

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

There was discussion about this possibly being related to NVIDIA GPUs. My MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) and Mac mini (Late 2012) have Intel integrated graphics, Intel Iris Graphics 550 and Intel HD Graphics 4000, respectively.

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

Not a developer and can't even pretend to be one, a quick google search on how to debug a Mac app suggested running sudo dtruss -n SheepShaver in Terminal.

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

Editing pref file to dga/1400/840 has no effect. SheepShaver still stops responding immediately upon launch. Changing it to win/1440/900 will result in a successful launch and I can use Control Return to toggle between Window and Fullscreen mode.

Re: Full screen problems in Mojave 10.14.6

Tested on a Mac mini (Late 2012) and experienced the same symptom. I will note that this was not a clean setup, but a copy of the same setup from my MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) which is also experiencing this symptom.

...cannot open files in the "SheepShaverVM" format.

First, I'd like to say thank you for the time and effort you spend on SheepShaver and the assistance you offer on this forum. I have two SheepShaver virtual machines. One is named System 7.sheepvm and the other is named Mac OS 9.sheepvm. I receive the attached error when attempting to open System 7....
