      "Awesome 680x0 Macintosh Emulator!"

      May 29, 2011   |   By Masmer32

      Version: Basilisk II 19b

      Pros

      Run almost all 68k-based Mac software
      Ethernet and AppleTalk networking
      Runs up to Mac OS 8.1
      Full screen or in a window
      Ports for Windows/Linux/Mac OS/BeOS/AmigaOS
      20+ faster than a real 68k Mac
      Built-in host file system access from within guest OS

      Cons

      Need a 68030 or 68040 ROM dump
      Need an appropriate Mac OS
      Somewhat difficult for a n00b to setup, but there are a number of websites for assistance.
      Does not run PowerMac OSes or software. Check out SheepShaver or PearPC for that.

      Summary

      I have been using Basilisk II since 1999. It is truly magic to see a Mac OS boot up with all my favorite extensions/control panels and to run my older Mac software and games. Others and I have supported and encouraged people new to Basilisk II with tutorials and by answering questions. Basilisk II was my obsession for quite a while.

      "Couldn't get it working"

      July 12, 2009   |   By OJB

      Version: Basilisk II 19b

      Pros

      Cannot tell at this point.

      Cons

      Doesn't launch.

      Summary

      I couldn't get this to launch. I did get an alternative program, Sheepshaver, set up and running with a bit of configuration. Not sure what I did wrong with Basilisk but since I have SS running now I have no need to persist with it.
