Hmmm..

I installed MagiC under shape shifter, but when I launch it, it says something in German about 030/040 FPU and PPC.

I took a photo and was going to translate it but forgot to bring the photo with me.

You can translate it your self (once it is installed) through a hex editor.

PC version is underwhelming btw. Best ran on a Quadra.

I'd be curious to see how well this performs on OS X, though I only own Amigas so ShapeShifter it is...

...assuming I can get it to work.

Without knowing ANY German? I think not.

PC version is the only one that really interests me.

Google translate is your friend! :)

Here is the error I get on my A600 with ACA 030 board...

Lauft nur mit CPU 68030, 68040, 68020/68851 oder PowerPC.

Translated:

Run only with CPU 68030, 68040, 68020 / 68851 or PowerPC.

Something tells me MagiCMac does not recognize what ShapeShifter is running on top of. ;)

I don't think you can full MagiC Mac using Shape Shifter. It would certainly seem it needs to be run on real hardware.

The upside is that it appears that MagiCMac does support PPC processors so maybe, just maybe I can get it to work on my of my eMacs running on OS9.

If that does not work, maybe I can install OS X and give the OS X version a go.

It's really a wonder they never ported this OS to the Amiga.

The Atari version of MagiC runs on Aranym.

You guys rock!  I have been trying to find MagiC for my ST for years.  Could never find a place to buy it.  

Even after I had found large collections of Atari ST software, not a single one had the latest English version of MagiC.

Hmm, now maybe it'll be worth it to get my Atari Mega STe and Atari TT030 up and running again.

Though my Amiga 4000 is currently way better than either of them :D

68851 hints that it needs a working MMU which probraly isn't available under shapeshifter (even if the host-system has one).
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Not the first time that i ask, just i wonder how hard might be to do a port of AROS for mac classic and other 68k/PPC old world non/amiga machines based on 68k Amiga port, and how good might perform...

I've thought about that too, but then realized that in the end all that we would have would be a Mac that could run Amiga software that never makes direct calls to the chip set...

...but only much slower than such software would run under MorphOS on a cheap eMac, thus making such a venture pointless.

On the other hand it would be nice to see AROS more fully developed for classic Amiga. Then we would be able to at least make free Emergency disks without the use of Work Bench files.
