I am currently attempting to run Mac OS 6.0 on the NewtonOS 2.0, I made a Mac OS 6.0 Emulator for my NeXT Box,and this is my new project and was wandering if anyone wanted to help. I don't want to here that this is not possible. I have a freind that used to work at Apple and is writing a Onscreenkey program for 6.0 and I am working on adapting Mac OS 6.0 to use the touchscreen. Any positive input would be helpfull.

Do you have screenshots or a binary for the Mac OS emulator for NeXTSTEP? I have a NeXT slab and would like to take a look at it.

Thanks.

The version I made is buggy it barley works BUT www.vmac.org has a Mac OS 6.0 emulator for NeXTSTEP it works well, you will need a Macintosh ROM but that is next to nothing to get.

Just for the novelty of it (I assume you did not circulate the emulator?) I would not mind having a screenshot to add to my collection of interesting finds. Could you provide?

Thanks.

Hiya, Spock.

I was running a search for Mac emulators for the Newt, and this forum popped up. Pretty much the only thing that did...:(

Anyway, I've been wanting to see a Mac emulator for the Newt ever since I found that fake one a few years ago - you may have seen it, simulates a MacOS boot, then gives you some error message until you figure out that that's all it really does.

Anyway, I see that it's been about four years since you talked about this here, and I was wondering if you've had any luck. Me, I'd love to be able to run the MacOS on my Newt.

So, anyway - how's that been going for you?

Thanks.

BTW, if you're interested, a guy I know of finally worked the bugs out of his Apple Lisa emulator. Here's a link to the site.

And one for a forum where they tell you where and how to get the ROMs and disks and such.
