Well I got fusionPPC set up many years ago on my a4000 604e just to run warlords II... sadly I was quite disappointed on what they'd done to such great potential...

Thing is I think you'll find most of these games will work on dosbox... not that I've tried them...

Fusion PPC actually released?

Anyhow, DOSBox is not to friendly with PPC machines. The most one can play on my eMac are low end 386 titles.

It was called iFusion, works just with CSPPC/CGX.

XDelusion, have you tried booting up MacOS without extensions? If you hold down the shift key when you see the little smiling Mac icon, next it should open a picture saying Mac OS - Extensions Disabled. Hopefully this might help you boot into the OS without crashes, and you can remove the extension that's causing it to crash. Extensions are sort of like your WBStartup drawer, you just remove items from it that you don't want starting at boot time.

Other than that I'm not sure what could be causing the crashes. Do you have the hardfiles on a SFS, PFS or FAT partition? If you have it on a FFS partition it could be very slow, although I doubt it would cause crashes. You could also try the command "Addbuffers" to speed up the drive the hardfile is on, like this for example if the hard file was on a CF or SD card in the PCMCIA slot - "Addbuffers CF0: 1000" and you;ll have plenty of buffers and faster disk access. To be honest I'm not sure what the perfect amount of buffers is, but this works for me.

I think I had 1000 buffers for my UWSCSI Hd, too.

Cammy can you recommend how to get a speed increase in colour? I have an A1200 030@40 but no MMU

Yes Ifusion PPC finally came out after years of Jim drew and co stalling...and then it only kind of worked it emulated an imac.. it was cool but almost alpha or early beta status and sold commercially.

@cammy

nice thread one more project for my a1200.. u see my spec so it should run fairly fast right?

BooBoo, you should definitely try the AGA Boost 030 driver: http://aminet.net/package/misc/emu/agaboost030ec

I hope it's speedy enough to get things done, I haven't tried it myself yet, I hoped there would be a 020 version to use with my 10MB A1200.

Magnetic, as long as your Apollo is a model with a 030 and not a EC030 it should be very nice to run Shapeshifter, even faster than my own A1200, unless you have no MMU and you'll have to use the video driver I recommended to BooBoo.

I found another driver for 030/MMU/ECS machines which I will have to try on my A600 and compare it to the MuEVD driver I'm currently using, which seems very quick considering this is on slow ECS.

Cammy, if I hold Shift, my system locks, no reboot. I have to power down to get back to the OS.

Does Shapeshifter need an FPU or something? Or I am wondering...

since RAD will not use my Apollo 060's Fast RAM, maybe some other programs like Shape Shifter are having issue with it too?


Also can I just use the Addbuffers command in my user-startup?

I'm really sorry but I'm stumped as to why Shapeshifter is crashing while it starts up on your 060. :( I know other people have definitely run it on them though, so don't give up. Perhaps there's an option somewhere that needs to be selected, or perhaps you need to try a different boot image or ROM file.

Shapeshifter doesn't need a FPU. My A1200 and A600 don't have them.

You can definitely add the AddBuffers command to the User-Startup, but I think you can also effectively do the same thing by increasing the buffers for each partition in HDToolBox as well, which might be more efficient than adding extra commands to the boot sequence.
