You are looking for SheepShaver (PPC) and/or Basilisk (68k).

That's a terrible attempt at a troll.

Executor also does Mac m68k machine level emulation. PearPC does Mac PPC. Qemu does both. I can't comment on how they stand with respect to performance or compatibility at this point.

Are we talking Motorola 68k? power pc? x86 OS X?

Mac could mean anything from 1984 to the apple store right now!

I'm gathering that thread is a troll though, in that case I would say it's better to emulate windows from a mac and then run mac within the windows emulator. So buy a macbook pro --> install windows 10 in a vm --> install virtualbox in the win10 VM--> install osx. :confused: :lol:
Sup. I like computers. Are you a computer?

The first iMacs had Rages and there are Mac versions of Voodoo3s out there. i'd think it's more likely for a Sheeps Haver to get v3 emulation than ahything else it supported

though the state of mac emulators these days seems to be generally dead-for-years + frontend maintenance on a forum so not optimistic

I played around with Sheep Shaver a couple of years ago and it was very unstable with constant crashes. Unusable. Was I doing something wrong or is this normal?

Sheepshaver can be very unstable with certain configurations. It will work best using Mac OS 8.5 and a newworld ROM file. Exiting and starting apps without restarting the emulator is also very buggy under Sheepshaver. If you check the emaculation forums there is another emulator which is capable of running Mac OS 9.x and seems to be more stable and is up-to-date compared to sheepshaver. I still need to set it up as my old Mac seems to be dead...

Older 68k sound has always been absent in those emulators.
