Emulators for Mac OS 9
« on: August 31, 2021, 12:44:34 PM »
There have been quite many emulators for Mac OS 9, here is some information of some of them:

I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.

I've been recently dabbling with emulation on OS9 and much to my surprise, there's quite a lot of very capable emulators out there. Problem these days is rather finding a page that has ROMs and is accessible from Classilla ... (read: we need a ROMs page for low-end systems :-) )

That's a cool link, teroyk! It's a good starting point, though the list misses a lot of excellent emulators like iNes, DGen, Mac Spectacle (Spectrum), IIe, GUS_GS and many many more ...

I think there is still working files to those emus:

I didn't check them yet, but filenames matching...if you tested come here to tell.

it is funny how this page (first post) does not list windows and atari emulators, which are probably the most "important" ones (unless you´re into mame roms)

but what i actually sometimes wish to have is an "OSX enviroment".
insert arbitrary signature here

I just thought that everybody knows them already :)

but what i actually sometimes wish to have is an "OSX enviroment".

I just think it in another thread month ago:
How far Power MachTen compatibility is from Darwin OS? Could it be use as compatibility layer to compile Darwin 1-5 apps to Mac OS 9 with MachTen?
from wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_(operating_system)):
"Up to Darwin 8.0.1, Apple released a binary installer (as an ISO image) after each major Mac OS X release that allowed one to install Darwin on PowerPC and Intel x86 systems as a standalone operating system.[10] Minor updates were released as packages that were installed separately. Darwin is now only available as source code."

I think it is possible to make at least OSX Jaguar terminal enviroment for Mac OS 9 with those source codes and Power Machten.
Is there anybody who is good with those GCC-compilers?

I used to play a few of these emulators in high school. We found a way to disable the security system and install iNes and either snes9x or bsnes. Those were some good ol' days in class. I wonder if the netplay functions in those emulators still work.
