The Apple Macintosh, later renamed the Macintosh 128K, was a personal computer released in 1984.


Emulator Rom Folder Extension BIOS Controller Config
BasiliskII macintosh .img .rom mac.rom, disk.img hardcoded
MinivMac macintosh .dsk vMac.ROM hardcoded

Emulators: BasiliskII, MinivMac

Mini vMac emulates the 68K processor macs (older software) e.g. Macintosh Plus, BasiliskII also emulates 68K but supports newer hardware as well e.g. Macintosh Classic, Macintosh II.

BasiliskII

ROMS

Accepted File Extensions: .img .rom (.dsk?, .sit?)

Place your Macintosh ROMs in

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh

BIOS

To start up your mac you need two main files:

mac.rom (can be renamed from PERFORMA.ROM)

disk.img (can be renamed from MacStartup.img)

You will also place these files in

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh

For more details see the forum post at http://blog.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/installing-basiliskii-an-early-macintosh-emulator/ and the links therein for detailed instructions about how to set up Basilisk II.

If your disk.img file (from MacStartup.img) only has a few MB of free space on it while running the emulator, you must create a new larger one if you want more free space. Since the disk setup GUI is not included in RetroPie's version of Basilisk, you must install Basilisk on your PC to create a larger image and copy your disk.img file to it. Similar instructions can be found at http://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8068

Once you have a working disk image large enough to install other software on, you can access other install disk images from the "Unix" icon on the Mac desktop which can access the file system of the Raspberry Pi.

Controls

a keyboard and a mouse

Ctrl + Escape will exit the emulator

Mini vMac (Macintosh Plus)

Place your Macintosh Plus ROMs in

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh

ROMS

Place your Macintosh Plus disks in

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh

at minimum you'll need to include a Macintosh operating system file named System Tools.dsk as when choosing any dsk the launch script launches into the OS first by default.

BIOS

Place your vMac.ROM (Macintosh Plus Firmware) in

/home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS

Controls

You'll want to shutdown from within the emulator to make sure to not corrupt your dsk and then you can use Ctrl+Q to exit the emulator.
