Prince of Persia 2 is not too slow to play with music when you use latest Macintosh II Variation of Mini vMac

Prince of Persia 2 cutscenes are being displayed properly when used with slightly modified horizontal rezolutions. I enclose a build I made that works properly.

I have noticed that cause of some reason Prince of Persia 2 demo has got two right most vertical lines removed making intro doesn't look nice. That was somewhat changed in full version where it is removing two vertical lines from the middle of the screen (line 17 and 18 from the right) so that it is less visible.

Nevertheless cause of some reason both versions have horizontal resolution lowered from 512 to 510 lines.

Mac gaming is damn fun because most games aren't just ports from PC versions. Several offer unique features. If only setting up an emulator could be easier...

Just download some already ready package and just modify it to your needs.
HFVExplorer for managing hdd so you can add some games there.

When did Mini vMac start supporting colour, and is there any reason to use it over Basilisk II?

October 13, 2008

Today's Development source snapshot adds color to the Mac II emulation. So far this only works in OS X, with other platforms to be implemented later.

The desired color depth is chosen at compile time, with the "-depth" option in the build system. "-depth 0" is black and white (the default for now), "-depth 1" is 2 bit color (4 colors), "-depth 2" is 4 bit color (16 colors), "-depth 3" is 8 bit color (256 colors), "-depth 4" is 16 bit color (thousands), and "-depth 5" is 32 bit color (millions). These options only work with the Macintosh II emulation ('-m II'). Color depth is a compile time option, instead of run time option, to help keep Mini vMac simple and small. However, regardless of the chosen color depth, Black and White is also available, and can be selected from the "Monitors" control panel. (In fact, you may not see color until selecting it from the "Monitors" control panel.)

The FPU and ASC are still not implemented, which sharply limits what programs will work without crashing (which I may not have made clear enough before). Two programs that will work nicely, in color, are "Slime Invaders 2.0.7" by Ingemar Ragnemalm and "Glider 4.10" by John Calhoun, which are both listed in the Arcade Games page.

Besides adding color, this snapshot also patches out the RAM checking at start up code from the Macintosh II ROM (as is already done for other models), and initializes the PRAM more suitably for a Macintosh II. Together, these allow the Macintosh II emulation to start up much faster.

Basilisk II has got too slow music and cutscenes

Music also plays weird with Sheepshaver.

It looks I have found the solution:

Nevertheless I wonder If anyone could check how demo version behaves on real hardware in both 512x and 640x resolutions.
