to use those Applescripts I cobbled together. The latest version (same
link -but from the DMG file, not the ZIP now) is much improved.
You'll be able to clean up the code in a hundred ways.
I also put the ROM and keyboard file in the Resources of Basilisk II
for a cleaner installation; this should of course be possible with
The current version of the system includes a few extensions and
control panels that might come in handy. I uploaded a new version
My only question: is there any benefit to using SheepShaver rather
than Basilisk II? Basilisk II is a lot faster, and WP doesn't include any
features that require a PowerPC computer instead of the 680x0
machine emulated by Basilisk II. On my machine, Basilisk II boots
in three seconds; SheepShaver takes fifteen. I'm not sure I see
what the real-world benefit is of using SheepShaver instead, but
maybe I'm missing something obvious.
We'll all be very grateful for version 2.0!
