This site might be of interest to those of you who get this working...

...I've still not gotten around to messing with it yet, so I dunno if these files are ShapeShifter friendly yet or not.

Anyone?


I couldn't get Basilisk to work and I'm an advanced Amiga user. I think Shapeshifter is the best 68k emulation. Fusion works well and has some advantages (file transfer is easier) but it also has more bugs and quirks. Fusion might be a little faster for low end Amigas but the speed is pretty similar on high end Amigas.

Ok, so I finally got the happy mac face to come up, but loading the 7.6.1 OS file posted takes minutes upon minutes of hard drive spinning action.  Is there something I can do to improve performance?

Well, I cannot put a 120 meg file in ram with 16 meg max :D

Have to wait for a good accelerator with some onboard ram or a zoram

otherwise it does seem to load ok... perhaps a bit zippier...

maybe I need to install it to its own partition...

IIRC, Shapeshifter recommends the user giving the Mac side its own small hard drive to improve loading time.  This is how I did it years ago with A3000 and PIV (no 060 at the time).  I remember the emulation being faster than a real Mac with equiv CPU.  It didn't like the 060 when it arrived (I didn't try too hard) so I gave it up.

shapeshifter's prepareemul locks up my system when I double click it! :/

Without that I can't use Shapeshifter at all can I?

Please try replacing PrepareEmul with these:

MuEVD - http://aminet.net/package/misc/emu/MuEVD
MuFastZero - http://aminet.net/package/util/boot/MuFastZero

Your Startup-Sequence after C:SetPatch QUIET should have these lines added:

C:MuMove4k PrepareEmul A1200
C:MuFastZero On

Making sure you have installed all the files to C: and Libs:
A1200 030@28Mhz/2MB+32MB/RTC/KS3.1/IDE-CF+4GB/4-Way Clockport Expander/IndivisionAGA/PCMCIA NIC
A1200 020@14Mhz/2MB+8MB/FPU/RTC/KS3.0/IDE-CF+2GB/S-Video
CD32 020@14Mhz/2MB+8MB/RTC/KS3.1/IDE-CF+4GB
A600 030@30Mhz/2MB+64MB/RTC/IDE-CF+4GB/Subway USB/S-Video/PCMCIA NIC/USB Numeric Keypad+Hub+Mouse+Control Pad
A500 000@7Mhz/512kB+512kB/ROM Switcher/KS3.1+1.3/S-Video

MuFastZero On - came back with an error, but I forgot to write it down and bring it with me. Doe! :/

Oh and Shape Shifter says that the ShapeShifter rom is not present or is corrupt. Yippy! :)

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

Tell me about it, I've been offering to come over and arrange her under garment  drawers for months now. Is it just the pretty Amiga girl effect, or am I sincerely a nice guy deep down inside? We may never know. ;)

OK I resolved my issue with MRFastZero, but now when ever the Mac first shows the little Mac Computer Icon to let me know it is booting...

...my Amiga crashes. :(
