Package : BasiliskII

Package details

Summary: A free, portable Mac 68k emulator

Description:
Basilisk II is an Open Source 68k Macintosh emulator. That is, it enables
you to run 68k MacOS software on you computer, even if you are using a
different operating system. However, you still need a copy of MacOS and
a Macintosh ROM image to use Basilisk II (of course MacOS and Mac ROM
are not included in this package).

Some features of Basilisk II:
- Emulates either a Mac Classic (which runs MacOS 0.x thru 7.5)
or a Mac II series machine (which runs MacOS 7.x, 8.0 and 8.1),
depending on the ROM being used
- Color video display
- CD quality sound output
- Floppy disk driver (only 1.44MB disks supported)
- Driver for HFS partitions and hardfiles
- CD-ROM driver with basic audio functions
- Easy file exchange with the host OS via a "Host Directory Tree" icon
on the Mac desktop
- Copy and paste text between MacOS and the host OS (X11 clipboard)
- Ethernet driver
- Serial drivers
- SCSI Manager (old-style) emulation
- Emulates extended ADB keyboard and 3-button mouse

This version also features a JIT ("Just In Time") compiler, which
speeds up the emulator by a factor of 10-15x with respect to the plain
version.
