    Emulation: Infinite Mac

    BeOS requires a MMU to run so it won't work in SheepShaver. And that specific error message Phipli gets is what happens when you try loading BeOS inside SheepShaver on BeOS. BeOS Launcher/OS Chooser didn't get upgraded after 4.5.

    BeOS PowerPC Software and GoBe Productive

    Archive deleted my bespecific page and sent me a virustotal report about compsysbe6.zip claiming it has a worm inside... Obviously a mistake but heh, what can you do. I'll upload the 7zipped iso images again on separate pages later this week.

    There are links to the author or publisher websites usually, sometimes files are also present on those. There was a big BeOS community in Japan, many books were published, a few conferences, BeOS was sold with a PC from Hitachi, and also been used for years on a line of Roland/Edirol video...

    BeOS PowerPC Software and GoBe Productive

    Beshare is chat and filesharing programs, there might still be a working server or two for it. Quake 1, 2 and 3 are x86 only. There's also Abuse, Worms Armageddon, Heretic, Descent. A port of Unreal Tournament also exists.

    Put SheepShaver in fullscreen in the Monitors&Sound control panel, it's only sluggish in windowed mode.

    First one is a special issue of PCWave. I don't know if there are more issues of BeFun existing, probably not.

    A confused 9500, also one of those Pulse apps is not like the other ;) Hehe, I see a button, I click!

    BeOS PowerPC Software and GoBe Productive

    Sure, I can make an .iso later. You could transfer the files via ftp to BeOS in the meantime, it usually works! Corum III is x86 and PPC compatible, I always forget, contrary to other official retail games for BeOS like Civ CTP and Hopkins FBI.

    BeOS PowerPC Software and GoBe Productive

    Only a single hfs track, unusual for BeOS software. You can run apps in direct fullscreen mode with that ixMicro card I think, like Doom for example. Not the case with a Mach64, from the quick tests I did some time ago.

    BeOS PowerPC Software and GoBe Productive

    For studioBuilder, I uploaded only the contents of the disc, it has an hfs track, weirdly enough... There's a "large" archive for PPC, a small one for Intel and a zipped directory of media samples. Added some screenshots too on the archive page. You're welcome! A dual 604e 9600, nice!

    No serial needed, it's only for the registration card. i did upload the contents of each track as well as the 7zipped cue/bin, for ease of use.

    Yes it has two bfs tracks, a 100MB little endian and a 25MB big endian, the disc is mostly empty. https://archive.org/details/gobeproductive201 I uploaded this as well: https://archive.org/details/01-studio-builder-1/03-studioBuilder1.jpg

    BeOS PowerPC Software and GoBe Productive

    I have the boxed last version of Gobe Productive, 2.0something, I'll dump the disc this week. I have almost all the BeSpecific freeware and shareware discs published by Adamation, older ones have software for DR7 and DR8, last one is up to R3 or R4, but the most interesting thing they contain...
