SheepShaver crashes whenever system plays a sound

Post by WinXPFan »

I wanted to check out the TTS voices in Mac OS 9, but when I selected my desired one, and clicked Play, instead of playing a promo, my emulator (SheepShaver) crashed. How do I fix that?

In the Sheepshaver GUI, Memory/Misc Tab, did you select “Ignore Illegal Memory Accesses”? This can prevent some programs from crashing SheepShaver.

Nope, Ticking that option freezes up the emulator when sound is tried to play (Guest Mac OS won't respond to clicks, Windows 10 Host, Mac OS 9.0.4).

I don't know how to resolve the problem in Sheepshaver, but it does work in QEMU on Windows 10, using the Qemu-Win64-5.2-Screamer-09-12-2020 build, with Mac OS 9.2.1.

Maybe there's a setting to change..
PS QEMU's PPC emulation won't start..

I tested it in Qemu-Win64-5.2-Screamer-09-12-2020, with Mac OS 9.2.1 using this command:

qemu-system-ppc-screamer-fpu.exe -L pc-bios -boot d -m 512 -M mac99 -prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -prom-env "boot-args" -prom-env "vga-ndrv?=true" -drive file=MacOS9.2.1.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom -drive file=MacOS9.2.1.img,format=raw,media=disk -sdl -netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01

In Sheepshaver, with OS 9.0.4, use an old world rom with 128 MB of memory, not a new world rom. That worked for me.

Which old world ROM should I choose? If I choose random, SheepShaver might say that ROM is unreadable.

Google redundant robot sheepshaver, you may find what you're looking for.
Rename the rom to Mac OS.ROM

What ROM should I choose? 4MB Old World or New World?
EDIT: Figured out, Old world 4MB.
But the sound is clicking.
