Package details

Summary: A free, portable Mac 68k emulator

are not included in this package).

Some features of Basilisk II:

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
