On my Touchpad it didn't seem to slow down too much, just slightly.
Anywho, I made a 8 MB disk. Works very nicely! Thanks Jim

You have to install Mini vMac on your computer, boot it with the system.dsk file, take a blank one, load that one in as well, and then just copy. (that worked for me, at least)

I thought I saw jim say that it only runs 68k programs. Quoting (tnx dxl) "look for 68k stuff / the 68000 is emulated / so higher or powerpc will not work".

Why is the screen resolution wrong for me?

Edit: Also when I try to launch a file it says: The document "name" could not be  opened, because the application program that created it could not be found.

Edit2: Turns out it's just the messages

Also I can't use drop down menus because I can't move the mouse enough. Solutions?

Edit3: Also the window size default is too big

OS7, and in turn the original emu, was written with a larger screen in mind.
actual size of screen

E: for the drop-down menus, you could enable mouse keys by pressing tab and hold the 5 key while using the touchpad.

Ok, so can this be changed?

Please explain more, what do you mean by "using the touchpad" do you mean holding click.

What keys are the mouse keys?

And "pressing tab" does that mean I am supposed to press it but not hold it?

Hi, I tried to use the following disk : http://www.mediafire.com/?nmymty24z5t
Not only didn't it work, but also the file can't be deleted anymore.

Might help to read the readme ;)
Quote from: readme
you can use the number keys to control the mouse. If you press TAB, Mini vMac will send Command-Shift-Clear to the emulator and Mac OS will enable number key mouse control. Use 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9 to move the mouse and 5 to click
Update everyone, there is a new version that has touchpad support
So, to use the menus, enable number key mouse control, put the mouse over the menu, hold 5 (mouse click) and move the mouse with either the touchpad or the keys. Releasing 5 selects whatever the mouse is above.

Few problems I have encountered:
Figuring out how to use drop down menus is a hassle.
There is no "controls" section of the help.
Rebooting/shutting down and turning back on causes the system to be unable to locate/read/initialize it's disk image. So rebooting is a nono.

There are no save states, and instead of control, I suggest using a button like docs to pull up the emulator controls.
I was thinking of porting Mac 9 to the calcs after GNesis (spelled it that way on purpose) is at least stable. :) This is so cool
Keep trying.
