Mini vMac emulates a Macintosh Plus, one of the earliest of Macintosh computers. It can run old Macintosh software that otherwise couldn't be used on recent machines. Mini vMac requires a ROM image file to run, and so can be legally used only by those who own a Macintosh Plus.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I'm not sure why I downloaded this; I have a fully-functional Mac SE/30 stashed away in my basement! :-)
But I wanted to see what the old Plus looked like, so I downloaded this emulator, fired it up, and began the upgrade to 7.5.5. I found I can use Disk Utility under OS X to create hard disks that I can use to boot the emulator and to install software.
I -knew- there was a reason I kept my old Mac floppies all these years (I still have a System 1.0 boot disk!). Crystal Quest. HyperCard. My old FileMaker databases...
Fun stuff. Good work, and hats off to the developers!
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Nice emu pretty much same as real thing and is pretty neat little app.
Also since its all disk images It took like 30 seconds to install system 7.
Very easy use with drag and drop.
You just drag the disk image you want to mount onto the(emulated) screen and it mounts it.
To toggle settings you just hold down ctrl(control) and use keys like m for magnify, f for full screen and things like that.
Very nice app great work.
