Hi folks,
I would like to run some old stacks using Sheepshaver on my OSX version 10.9.2 macbook pro. Unfortunately, The OS9 image that I use has a capacity limited to 120 MB, so that it has 3MB left with HC and 0S9 on it. Hypercard stacks only work when located on the system partition. I have try increasing its size with no success up to now.
AI’m sure you have an answer !
Have a nice day
Bernard

If you use the Chubby Bunny preconfigured SheepShaver here:

http://www.macwindows.com/OS9_on_Intel_Mac.html

you can directly see the contents of Users/Shared. You can also mount extraDMGs, it comes with a 400MB and 1200MB DMGs. HyperCard cant read Home w
hen running from the Users/Shared folder, but it does work fine running from the 400 MB DMG.

I hope this doesn't just work in Mini vMac, but I think you can just create/take a file of the right size in OS X and specify it as a secondary hard disk and SheepShaver will see it as an unformatted disk and ask you to format it. If that fails, try using Disk Utility to create a disk image of the desired size. Make sure it has the right properties (Read/Write, HFS+, not bundle) and you should be able to register that as the second hard disk.

Once you have an image that works, you can simply copy the system folder over, then change the configuration to only use that image and on next launch of Sheep Shaver you'll have a bigger boot volume.

If all that fails, let me know and I could make a copy of a 1GB image I have and format that and send you a zipped copy. Hopefully an empty image compresses well.

For SheepShaver help, go to
http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sheepshaver

When I was going through a lot of agony trying to get SheepShaver to
work, I got a **HUGE** amount of help here. I couldn't find a topic
that matched my problem, so I started a new one. That same day (as
best I remember -- it was over a year ago) an expert posted a
suggestion. That didn't quite fix my problem, and we ended up
communicating a dozen or more times till all was well.

And it's free!

The URL above takes you to the top level. The support forum is in the
second line under "Getting Started".

Good luck!

The thing I linked to is a simple installer, with no configuring to do. I did do SheepShaver on its own long ago, but the Chubby Bunny thing makes it all very easy.

Would Basilisk be a better option? I don't know how HyperCard performance
varies between them, but I have good luck using Basilisk overall. One issue
though are very slow animated card transitions under emulation.

I don't get any B/W transitions in HyperCard under SheepShaver at all. Might be different with AddColor transitions, not sure.
