Virtual ][ Emulator for Mac

The Virtual ][ emulator for Mac saw an update late last month. It now sits at version 6.4.1. You can download this and many other emulators in the Box File Widget located on the right hand side of this blog or from their website. Let’s scope out the changes.

What’s new in version 6.4

  • Dropped support for Mac OS X 10.5 and the PowerPC processor. The program now requires an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or better.
  • Added a feature to change the write protection and volume number of disk images.
  • It is now possible to configure a 65C02 processor in an Apple ][ or ][+ virtual machine.
  • When choosing “Copy as Text” from the Edit menu, international characters on the screen are now correctly copied to the Mac clipboard.
  • Improved the quality of the QuickLook preview and thumbnail of a saved state file.
  • Some custom character sets were not accepted by the virtual machine – this has been fixed.
  • Fixed a number of minor issues, thereby improving the overall stability of the program.

What’s new in version 6.4.1

Corrected some minor issues that were introduced in version 6.4:

  • Double-clicking a disk in the Finder didn’t work anymore when Virtual ][ did not run – this has been fixed.
  • All pictures in the Inspector Help were missing – this has been corrected.

About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.
