Whelp today I was bored and decided to try to run System 0.85 in Mini vMac, as I remember emulating System 1.1d on it a long time ago (~1 year ago). However, when I use an illegal Mac Plus ROM and then insert the System 0.85 .IMG I just get a black screen. I don't have any real Macintosh's to try it on nor extract the ROM from, nor have I been able to find any program that can emulate early Macs other than Mini vMac. Edit: And a different Mac Plus ROM I tried? Stuck on Welcome to Macintosh screen. Any ideas?
And search in your browser for any variations with the "-m 128" setting. The -t setting indicates platform.
You will, of course, need a 128k ROM file. Get one from an original Macintosh or Google around for one.
However, be warned, if you're trying to run 0.85 (standalone, without the guided tour), it won't work with any of the ROMs we have available. If you want to emulate 0.85, you'll have to use the Guided Tour version.
