Doesn't want to work
As many ASW games don't work in Classic on my 10.4 machine, and rebooting into OS 9 isn't a good option at all, I thought that SheepShaver might be worth trying. SheepShaver is a PPC emulator, like PearPC; however, unlike PearPC it is only compatible with OS 7 through OS 9, and it doesn't emulate the processor on PPC hosts - achieving near-native speeds.
I sucessfully installed both OS 8.6 and OS 9.0.4 (the newest OS supported) on SheepShaver, along with a couple of games. Ares, for one, ran pretty well; much better than in Classic. Freazel, however, eludes me. Version 1.0.3 installed fine from my CD, but when I try to run it, it opens for about 3 seconds and then quits with no error message. The result is the same in both 8.6 and 9.0.4.
Any ideas? Is this a known issue with Freazel, or is it simply seemingly incompatible with SheepShaver (darn)? Thanks.
(PS: If anyone wants setup instructions for SheepShaver, please ask. All you need is a PPC Mac with Classic (Classic only for the inital setup), an old system install disk, and a bit of harddrive space.)
