    7.1 vs 7.5.3 on a Color Classic

    That's a pretty pragmatic set of rules. Usually I like to go with the system version it came in the box with just for authenticity. I put these rules in my Apple Notes for reference, Thanks!

    How about this: old hard drive sounds emulator?

    You could use a 2 or 3 second sample and play the full sample for each disk access, even it it were just a split second. If the files were a couple hundred Megs and it took say 10 seconds, you could play the sample 3 times or as many times as would fill the transfer time.I don't think the sound would have to match the disk access time precisely to bring pleasure to the user.

    7.1 vs 7.5.3 on a Color Classic

    I just went with 7 pro (7.1.1). That's what the cc came with anyway. If I can find a logic board I'll make it a mystic. 640x 480 sounds pretty enticing and will allow me to play better games on it.

    7.1 vs 7.5.3 on a Color Classic

    Yea, I went with 7.1. I'm searching for a copy of 7 Pro (7.1.1) Can't find it anywhere. 7.1.1 has AppleScript so I can run Dragthing.

    Several findings on computerpartsgalore.com

    Some of the prices aren't bad really. I looked at the SuperMac video cards but there's no way to tell what card it really is. The part numbers mean nothing and not "Google-able"

    7.1 vs 7.5.3 on a Color Classic

    Hi all, I'm setting up my new Color Classic and it came with 7.1 on it so I copied 7.5.3 to my SCSI2SD and replaced the OS with the newer one. I immediately noticed a significant slow down in boot time and general response. Is 7.5.3 that much slower than 7.1? or is there something I'm missing? I have it on a 350MB spindle drive with 10MB of RAM, 32bit is on, 256k disk cache, virtual memory at 20M, no RAM disk, monitor at 256 colors.

    Color Classic doesn't boot off external HD

    I just followed the Savage Taylor guide on a Mac and it worked fine. I understand you're on Windows though. I'm on Mojave running Basilisk II. I imaged my Basilisk drive to with Disk Copy 4.2 and saved it to my shared Basilisk drive. I then used dd in the terminal to copy it to my SD card.

    SCSI2SD and se/30

    They are SCSI devices so they would use a 25 pin SCSI cable and a power supply, just like a hard drive.

    It's a RetroPie. Raspberry Pie with emulators for just about every retro system that ever was. Really inexpensive to build and fairly easy to learn the basics. The convenience of having almost every console game of the 70s, 80s and 90s in one unit is priceless! The CC is from ebay. I picked it up for 203 bucks, a steal! It looks and works great. It has a whiney 350MB hard drive that I'll end up replacing with a SCSI2SD. I'm thinking of getting a Raspberry Pie Zero and configuring it to be a router so I can place it inside the CC and hook up to the network wireless. Anyone done that?

    Got it running, it was the fact I was using a NeXT keyboard and the switch is wired different. I hooked up an Apple ADB keyboard, hit the power switch and Voila!

    I pulled the MB out and heard the fan come on when power turned on. So it's something on the MB I guess. I'm using a NeXT ADB keyboard and mouse. Do I have to have a Mac keyboard plugged in and use the keyboard power button? I also tried booting with no ADB device at all, same issue. I removed the RAM and VRAM but no change. I don't see a CUDA chip but then again I don't know what it looks like.
  15. I just received my new color classic and plugged it in and no power, no led, no nothing. I pulled the MB and saw that the battery had been taken out. Will a CC boot with no battery at all? Could that be the problem? What else should I look at? The pics on ebay showed the computer running with a nice bright screen.
