[REQ] Windows Emulators of 68k Macintosh

Post by Frozenport »

Does anybody have any of these emulators? Does anybody have the serials for them?

I suppose this shouldn't be a problem because not only is PPC Mac dying but 68k should be something like 15 years old by now...

You don't need any serials, though you will need an image of the ROM from the Mac that you want to emulate (these are technically only legal to have if you own the corresponding Mac but can be found online). Basilisk II emulates a 68k and can run up to OS 8.1, while if you want to emulate a PowerPC Mac and run Mac OS 9 try SheepShaver.

Read this page for good instructions for emulating the 68k.

I think I made a typ-o in the title...

I wanted to get x86 emulators for 68k

Sorry for that confusion

I've downloaded SoftWindows for 68k before but don't remember ever getting it to work right. I don't think Virtual PC was ever available for 68k - 68ks are too slow really for emulating a PC.

I've read somewhere (dont remember) that someone installed Debian on their 68k then PearPC, which took a week to boot OS X Panther

Yes, That was danamania (female) who did this. A link for this project is here http://mactalk.com.au/articles/68kpanther/

I saw somewhere that it never actually worked, it thrashed away for a week and got to the grey Apple screen but then the old hard disk that was in the machine died. I think they ran the 68k version of Debian directly on the Mac though, not in an x86 emulator.

I sware there was once a commercial emulator that did i386, If I remember correctly it did Windows 3.1

I think it was available on one of the classic Mac sites. Yet, I can't find it now...

That's probably SoftWindows, I think that came with 3.1 (there was a version with 95 too but that might have been a PPC-only one).

I found these but I don't know if they work:

3200-0012-5172-5661
3200-5013-6610-1112

What's the performance like running an emulator inside an emulator.

I expect it would be very good, as Basilisk II on a modern PC runs 68k Mac OS much faster than any real 68k Mac ever did, so it should be faster than it was when used on a real Mac.
