I want to play Super Wing Commander. It runs too fast on SheepShaver. Is there a better emulator for speed control or is there a speed reduction app that doesn't cause insta-crashes with SheepShaver?

Actually it will likely be even faster in Basilisk. The emulation overhead of a PPC vs a 68k is a lot higher, so emulating a PPC Mac is not as fast.

Those emulators unfortunately don't have any sort of speed control. You might want to look into MESS's Mac emulation, which is still in its infancy but actually sticks to the proper CPU speed. It might work, it might not.

If Wing Commander runs in any 68k CPU, try choosing the 68020 or the 68030 for emulation in Basilisk II. This will certainly slow the game down if still too fast with the 68040.

CPU arch does not determine CPU speed
