Can you emulate Mac on Windows?

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. 😕 🤣

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...

That is why Mini vMac exists for.

Something is working, but dont except too much, unless something big changed in last year.

68k is probably best and there are even good emulators for Amiga, which are working in Amiga emulators.

PowerPC no sound and no 3D untill there would be some QEMU virtual devices for IT.

I bought last PowerPC iMac instead of emulation for $80, its much better, if you have a bit of space for it.. You can install Classic MacOS 8/9 beside of OS10.

It depends on what you want to emulate. Mini vMac is good if you want to emulate System 6-style games, while I've found SheepShaver to be good for everything else (just be sure to check the "68k" checkbox for SheepShaver). There are a few quirks SheepShaver has that Basilisk II (a 68k emulator) doesn't, like keycode mapping (better hope that a game doesn't require the control, command, AND option key, unless you want to get rid of the Windows key) and ADB emulation (this is almost never needed but you will need it for a few games, like Apeiron).
