Re: does anyone use Eureka the database enclopedia?

Nice finding adespoton! As archangelista already found Eureka working with Snow Leopard, it may be an option to run the app in a virtual machine, e.g. Tiger Server to Leopard Server with VMWare Fusion. Leopard Server with VMWare runs fine with my i5-2520m on a Mojave host, I did not try Catalina so ...

Re: Installing a MacOS 9 hard disk game how to proceed ?

The procedure as posted at MG seems to be this: Move the .SIT file via "This PC" to your Macs HDD - not to the desktop. Unstuff the .SIT with StuffitExpander. Mount the resulting .IMG with DiskCopy 6. DiskCopy 6 is not included with MacOS but you can find it at Macintoshgarden. Run DiskCop...

Re: Trying to read a hard drive from Performa 630

While you are with Windows, you might also give Basilisk II Build 142 a whirl. If you can manage to assign your Performa HDD a drive letter, BII might see the device. Alas, I´d agree that Leo Server is the most promising way. If you should have trouble setting up 10.5, there must be a working instan...

Re: Trying to read a hard drive from Performa 630

Maybe try to use the "Unix" folder to point to the device as seen by DiskUtility. More promising will be to try to assign the device to a virtual machine running Leopard Server. Leopard was the last OS with read/write ability for HFS formatted volumes, as you will know. See here for some d...

Re: How to hard shutdown on SheepShaver with Windows?

Ctrl-Shift-Escape should bring up Task Manager.
From there kill the SheepShaver task or anything else.

Depending on your virtualisation machine, there should also be a menu entry to shut down a guest VM.

Re: .DSK-Compatibility vMac and Basilisk, HFVExplorer, SCSI2

I know that MiniVMac does write to .dsk images of RAW type. I used that procedure some time ago to write physical floppies from Terminal with dd in OSX. Maybe RAW is the key here too - dd does not like any headers for sure. Maybe this is still of use for you: https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewto...

A usual error. The .sit files must be moved to the emulated HDD and expanded there. The reason for the odd behaviour is that in MacOS every volume has its own Desktop folder. If you move something from "This PC" to the Desktop, the file actually is still on "This PC" which has a ...

To my knowledge, nobody published a SheepShaver build for ARM cpu so far.
