Fusion might be a little faster for low end Amigas but the speed is pretty similar on high end Amigas.

Well, I cannot put a 120 meg file in ram with 16 meg max

Have to wait for a good accelerator with some onboard ram or a zoram

otherwise it does seem to load ok... perhaps a bit zippier...

maybe I need to install it to its own partition...

IIRC, Shapeshifter recommends the user giving the Mac side its own small hard drive to improve loading time. This is how I did it years ago with A3000 and PIV (no 060 at the time). I remember the emulation being faster than a real Mac with equiv CPU. It didn't like the 060 when it arrived (I didn't try too hard) so I gave it up.

shapeshifter's prepareemul locks up my system when I double click it! :/

Without that I can't use Shapeshifter at all can I?

Please try replacing PrepareEmul with these:

MuEVD - http://aminet.net/package/misc/emu/MuEVD
MuFastZero - http://aminet.net/package/util/boot/MuFastZero

Your Startup-Sequence after C:SetPatch QUIET should have these lines added:

C:MuMove4k PrepareEmul A1200
C:MuFastZero On

Making sure you have installed all the files to C: and Libs:

MuFastZero On - came back with an error, but I forgot to write it down and bring it with me. Doe! :/

Oh and Shape Shifter says that the ShapeShifter rom is not present or is corrupt. Yippy!

Tell me about it, I've been offering to come over and arrange her under garment drawers for months now. Is it just the pretty Amiga girl effect, or am I sincerely a nice guy deep down inside? We may never know.

OK I resolved my issue with MRFastZero, but now when ever the Mac first shows the little Mac Computer Icon to let me know it is booting...

...my Amiga crashes.

Well I got fusionPPC set up many years ago on my a4000 604e just to run warlords II... sadly I was quite disappointed on what they'd done to such great potential...

Thing is I think you'll find most of these games will work on dosbox... not that I've tried them...

Fusion PPC actually released?

Anyhow, DOSBox is not to friendly with PPC machines. The most one can play on my eMac are low end 386 titles.

XDelusion, have you tried booting up MacOS without extensions? If you hold down the shift key when you see the little smiling Mac icon, next it should open a picture saying Mac OS - Extensions Disabled. Hopefully this might help you boot into the OS without crashes, and you can remove the extension that's causing it to crash. Extensions are sort of like your WBStartup drawer, you just remove items from it that you don't want starting at boot time.

Other than that I'm not sure what could be causing the crashes. Do you have the hardfiles on a SFS, PFS or FAT partition? If you have it on a FFS partition it could be very slow, although I doubt it would cause crashes. You could also try the command "Addbuffers" to speed up the drive the hardfile is on, like this for example if the hard file was on a CF or SD card in the PCMCIA slot - "Addbuffers CF0: 1000" and you;ll have plenty of buffers and faster disk access. To be honest I'm not sure what the perfect amount of buffers is, but this works for me.

Yes Ifusion PPC finally came out after years of Jim drew and co stalling...and then it only kind of worked it emulated an imac.. it was cool but almost alpha or early beta status and sold commercially.

@cammy
