The title says it all . . . it's about Macs, Linux & Windows in all flavors, internet security, whatever -- and we love emulation too! It is not a place to chat about the weather or the social scene :-)
Ah, the good old days
Might have been less "Evita" and more this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butch_Cassidy_and_the_Sundance_Kid
I have seen both of these motion pictures and they were very, very good ... except the obvious Hollywood clichés and imagination, I can live with that :)
And actually I cannot deny it, those small dramatizations only made the story enjoyable ...
But still, I am always much more interested in real-life stories :) People have seen so much, and so many stories are left untold ...
In my experience, people seem to think that their own stories are "boring" -- and that is one of the many reasons they hesitate to tell what happened. But I think that the stories seem to be boring only because they know them already! In the ears of the other people, who knows how interesting they might be!
Ok, enough of that ...
Speaking of emulation, here's a project you might be interested in: https://sourceforge.net/projects/cockatrice/
Someone is porting Christian's original Basilisk II version (.8) over to modern systems, including Windows, and adding features along the way. Basically what you did 22 years ago!
I noticed this Cockatrice project years ago and I read his blog. Which was interesting! But it seemed to me that he put the project on hold. And now after following the link you provided, it looks like he or someone else is actively continuing the project ?!?! Thanks for that information, made my day! I don't have the energy to look into what they are currently doing, I mean the details. No doubt I'll do that sooner or later.
I think he updates it periodically. Once I get a few updates finished on the E-Maculation wiki I will check it out. Maybe write a few basic instructions on how to set it up, since it doesn't come with a GUI.
It is likely more stable than the current Basilisk II JIT that we use for Windows (that's the one Gwenole developed).
Aha! I found it. It's the year 2014. His blog:
To quote him:
"The harder part was Windows, as the system code written by Lauri Pesonen who did an excellent job of porting BasiliskII to Windows, but to say their code took 100% advantage of the Win32 API would be an understatement.."
... and he was right, in my quest to make the port as good as I could, I missed all the aspects of portability to other platforms etc. It was a trade-off that had downsides, too.
