Great news for vintage Mac computing!

Recommended Posts

Since a few days, the well known MC680X0 Mac emulator BasiliskII, originally developed by Christian Bauer et.al decades ago for GNU/Linux has been ported to Android.

Developer Lubomyr is kind enough to offer the working apk on his DropBox for free. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/47797448/basilisk2/basilisk2-sdl-android-arm-02.12.2014.apk

Just as on other host OS, sound output from BII does work well, as far as I can tell.

The Android port does not come with a GUI to configure BasiliskII, but Lubomyr´s download comes with a basiliskii_prefs file, which can be edited to ones demands easily enough.

As usual a ROM file is needed and a bootable volume, of course.

Have fun!

Edit:

Seems I spoke too soon. Though BII is running fine on a Huawei Y300, it can´t get things rolling, neither on 4.0.4 nor on a 4.2.2 tablet. arrrgh.

My guess are the weird mount points for (external) SD volumes, every device seems to follow its own rules.

I specified the path in the SDL screen correctly methinks, but no dice.

Maybe someone is willing to try and to report back?

New version is working!

Look here for an updated BII port with GUI and some fixes in the backend obviously:

GUI looks like this:

The version submitted on 2015-01-04 looks almost perfect and Mac files may reside in any given volume, even on a external SD.

Many features to be configured via the SDL settings, go figure! :)

Yet another version: http://anddev.at.ua/load/emulators/basilisk_ii/2-1-0-24
