Basilisk II is an open source emulator of 68xxx-based Mac computers for Windows, OS X and Linux. With Basilisk II, one can boot Mac OS versions 7.x through 8.1. Versions are also available for Linux and Windows.

What's New

Version 1.0.20091004:
  • New version build from source 4 October 2009, but without the "SDL audio patch" change that was applied 19 February 2009. The "SDL audio patch" caused poor sound performance, apparent in all BasiliskII for MacOSX builds in the past months.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.0 or later

The info here is a bit old. Newer versions solve some of the problems mentioned in these comments.

This version is compiled as a Universal Binary, but on my Intel iMac it quits suddenly and unceremoniously part way through booting from my OS 8 CD. I have tried several different ROM files from Performas and Quadras, and consistently get the same poor results. Once-upon-a-time I had a version of Basilisk running on an old PowerPC machine. It was pretty crashy, but at least it ran a bit.

Did you remember to set RAM to 4 MB or 8 MB on Basilisk 19b, for OS 8.0, make sure your host computer have enough RAM to run on

Mine was doing that too. Try setting the CPU to 68030 (NOT 68040) and uncheck "with FPU".

It works almost great, the thing is that in tiger (10.4.2 ) , when I try to add another volume to mount, the application closes unexpectedly. I hope this is fixed soon

i also had the mouse issue, and the keyboard doesn't work either. this only happens in full screen mode - windowed mode works okay, albeit slow. other than that, a great emulator!

I made a version of Basilisk II with sound support, it's currently available at http://vasi.webhop.org.nyud.net:8090/files/BasiliskII-audio.zip

If enough people like it, maybe I can eventually convince the main authors to include my sound support code.

i like it. it emulates 68k like i had it connected directly to my monitor. and i like being able to start it off with many OSes. But your emulator could realy use sound. That is the only flaw. otherwise Pretty good.
