Help setting up Basilisk II for System 6 (Macintosh Plus)


New member
I'm getting lost in terms of finding the necessary files needed to set up the emulator, and then configuring it correctly. Can someone help?

For system 6 use mini vMac. Basilisk cant run in 24 bit. Only sys 7 and 8 are working in Basilisk.

Helpful link, but Basilisk can run 7, as noted above.
You're right but, in my opinion, Mini vMac works better for System 7 up to 7.1.1. With 7.5.3 and later it's better Basilisk II, which allows also to modify the screen resolution.
