Re: Test Post

Since we're on a modern phpBB now, any chance we can add "like" or "thanks" or "solved" buttons to posts? I think that the current consensus among the mod team is that "like" and "thanks" buttons might not add much to the forum. I think you should only add those if you also add “dislike” buttons to...

Re: This disk (CD-ROM) is unreadable by this Macintosh

Well it doesn't appear that KryoFlux has the floppy drive for sale. At least I could not find it. But I suppose if I did, it would probably be expensive. The category “Floppy Drives” on their website is empty. The floppy controller mentioned by Ronald is available though: https://webstore.kryoflux....

Ronald, As always, your guide is very clear and detailed.

Re: Pce/macplus for windows and hfs drive initialization

Where did you create the disk image? If you have created/formatted it in Mac OS 9, the volume’s drivers might be too new for System 6 to properly read from/write to it. You might try formatting it in System 6 and see whether it can still be properly handled there after writing files to it in Mac OS ...

Re: New icons for BasiliskII for Windows

Every size is provided as 72 dpi and 144 dpi (for retina displays). So ‘icon_512x512@2x.png’, for example, is actually 1024×1024 px, but at 144 dpi. Not quite. All images are 72 dpi. So ‘icon_16x16@2x.png’ and ‘icon_32x32.png’ are both 32x32 at 72 dpi. And I miss a separate 64x64 image (apart from ...

Re: System 7 coexisting with macOS X

I just compiled the new code and it is also working fine here!

In my opinion, at the present state rootless mode works great and I would love to see this option merged into the master branch/standard build of Basilisk II.

What do others here think about that?
