  1. Hey Duckie! I'm really glad that Timan pays to keep the lights on over here. This is a slice of history that I hope doesn't disappear anytime soon. I'll swing by every five or six months. Another reason that this place is slow might be that forums themselves are a pretty antiquated idea. People communicate and share stuff in entirely different ways. My own forum is still kicking, meanwhile. Do stop by: http://emaculation.com/forum/
  2. Afraid not. I visit once every three or four months, though!
  3. All forums dry up and blow away eventually. This one is almost 13 years old. So it goes, so it goes.
  4. This site needs... ah... some fresh content!
  5. Another source of classic emulation is an old build of Basilisk II. Here's the last version of Basilisk II for Windows that supports classic emulation: http://www.emaculation.com/basilisk/Build9...in32_031099.zip
  6. I just did some building, testing and reading and have discovered that the Mac II emulation that provides mini vmac with color does NOT support sound. Indeed, trying to play a sound will crash the emulator.
  7. Annnnd, I meant to post that in the thread about sound. Whoops.
  8. Sound is a compile-time option... and I didn't bother to check that option when I compiled the build you are using! I'll compile one for you with sound when I have a bit of free time. Meanwhile, you can try yourself if you like. Here's the build instructions: http://minivmac.sourceforge.net/doc/build.html In addition to what you see there, the build option for Macintosh II emulation is '-m II' Also, the desired color depth is chosen with "-depth". "-depth 0" is black and white (the default for now), "-depth 1" is 2 bit color (4 colors), "-depth 2" is 4 bit color (16 colors), "-depth 3" i
  9. Hey, for what it's worth, the Mini vMac snapshot released today now emulates a Mac II (with color)! This all works in the Windows port... previously, the color emulation only worked in the OS X port. Here's the executable: http://www.emaculation.com/minivmac/minivmac081204.zip It requires a Mac IIx rom file called "MacIIx.ROM" There is possibly some discussion of this release over here: http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5458
  10. Have any forum members had experiences building a site using a wiki software... like Media Wiki or whatever? I've spent a few weeks building my site using DokuWiki, and I really dig it, but I'm wondering what everyone else has used. I've found that Wiki's can be shit for navigation and clarity of organization, so I'd love to hear what sort of organizational strategies you guys might be using. DokuWiki: http://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki
  11. I'm going back for year number five at the undergraduate level. Yeah, I know, it is supposed to be a four year thing. I'm going to write a thesis!
  12. Keith, I'm not sure what you mean in the last part of your post, but the screenshot suggests that you are installing alright. You can just exit the installation after that part, when it asks for the second CD.
  13. Using the example of say, Basilisk II, that seems likely, juno. Those 1999 releases were pretty basic. And slow...
  14. The JIT enhanced version is noted as being about 40:1.
  15. Swear to God, this is the last time I link to my own site, but if anyone wants a step-by-step guide to setting up PearPC in Windows, this one is really helpful: http://www.emaculation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=934 Particularly useful is info on using Darek Mihocka's Gemulator to create CD images from your OS X cds.
  16. Jackalo has appeared at Aqua Soft! The end is nigh!!
  17. Maconlinux is not very helpful, since it doesn't emulate a CPU - it only runs on PPC machines. Sheepshaver (official, setup guide) is the best substitute, it runs 8.6 in Linux very nicely. Anyways, I wrote a few more words about PearPC: [snip] "Meanwhile, Mike "Jackalo" Kolassa contributes a screenshot (http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?show...5entry2086784), and gives this frank assessment of the emulator: 'Can't do: 1) Anything under MacOS 10.3 2) Sound 3) Networking (on Windows) 4) Go faster than 10MHz Can do: 1) Install PPC OS's 2) Crash after OS 10.3 loads with a kernel panic'
  18. Hey: a new emulator called PearPC seems to be able to run OS X on x86 machines: http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/index.html Check out the screenshots: http://pearpc.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html As always, some scoopage is over on this crappy site all the time: http://www.emaculation.com/
  19. Swisher, check out "Mother Night," based on the Kurt Vonneguy novel of the same name. It is very honest! It's got Alan Arkin!! Also, the dreamy Sheryl Lee: http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0117093/Ss/...y=Lee,%20Sheryl Linky: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117093/
  20. I knew that we weren't going to get a film out of the "I, Robot" collection, since it is merely a bunch of shorts, all of which are not the sort of thing that can be put on film. But when I read a bit about the premise, I thought we might be getting an adaption of Asimov's "Caves of Steel," which IS something that can be made into a movie without a whole lot of corruption. What with the whole detective investigating a robot murder and all... I figured the name thing was just to sell tickets. "I, Robot" is cool name, while "The Caves of Steel," is not a cool name. But it doesn't look like
  21. Phil Harris and his Orchestra - "That's What I like about the South" crackle-crackle-pop... "...Here comes that guy with all the news Box back coat and button shoes He's paid up with his union dues And that's what I like about the south..." crackle... crackle... "...Did I tell you about the place called Doo Wah Diddy? It ain't no town and it ain't no city It's just awful small and awful pretty Well Doo Wah Diddy..."
  22. I just scored like 50 78s!! Now playing... Doris Day and Frankie Lane singing "How Lovely Cooks the Meat." Man: Oh, how lovely cooks the meat Oh, how lovely cooks the meat When I get back home to eat Oh, how lovely cooks the meat I smell it far away And I thought of it all day She cookin' meat for me What a meal it's gonna be Woman: Oh, I cooked a lovely meal To my man it will appeal When he comes in through the door He will love me even more Man: Oh, how lovely cooks the meat Oh, how lovely cooks the meat When I get back home to eat Oh, how lovely cooks the meat I smell it far away And
