Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

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. :D

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

I wanted to get x86 emulators for 68k

Sorry for that confusion 8-)

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 :P

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 :D

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.
