Sheepshaver updating apple hard disk drives
With time, I hope to slowly complete this list to have a convenient reference on this matter. If no preferences file is present, Sheep Shaver will create one with the default settings upon startup.
I'll copy here the information I got from Sheep Shaver's source code and cross-reference with Basilisk II's counterparts when applicable.
The “Appleworks problem” turned out to be fairly easily stated. Installing and setting up either of the two major Mac OS emulators presently available is a bit of a chore.
If you have an older Appleworks based document that you need to regain access to, how do you do this if you don’t have an older Mac to facilitate that access? Run a Mac OS 9 emulator on your modern Mac, install Appleworks into the emulator and then use it to recover full access to the document of interest. The curiously named Sheepshaver application is the best supported Mac emulator currently out there.
My first hands-on experience with the Mac was in high school, during my junior year, which began in 1986.
They have created several year’s worth of data in Appleworks 6.x and wonder what they should do so they can continue to use this data.If no "rom" line is given, the ROM file has to be named "Mac OS ROM" and put in the same directory as the Sheep Shaver executable.Allocate "bytes" bytes of RAM for Mac OS system and application memory.But I’ve always been interested in hardware emulation, if for no other reason than I needed first Virtual PC and now Parallels in order to test software I’ve written with File Maker and REALbasic on the Windows platform.I remembered a few programs out there that emulate old Mac processors, and decided to check them out. This is the brain of the computer, where all of the computation takes place.
For each keyword, the meaning of the "value" string may vary across platforms.
