With Basilisk and every emulator that I've used games run way too fast! I assume this is because they (the emulators) were designed on PCs with Pentium 2 (or its AMD equivalent or maybe even Cyrix) CPU's or even slower. I have a 2.08 GHZ AMD CPU. Any Ideas on how to slow down emulation or is ther an emulator that was made in the last 2 years?
That depends on your platform.
As far as the last two years, SheepShaver can now emulate a PPC running up to OS 9.0.4 (with AltiVec), but only on Linux. Not sure what speed you should expect playing a game, but SheepShaver is pretty fast. You need a specific ROM image to run SheepShaver on the x86 platform.
PearPC can emulate a slow G4 and run OS X 10.x on Linux and Windows, but can't run in Mac Classic mode yet (to run your games). No ROM required.
I assume you already know about the Fusion PC, SoftMac, Executor and (mini) vMac 68k emulators that may also run your game slower then Basilisk II does?
Oh yeah noticed that too, Basilisk runs games from the 80's way too fast. So better play B&W games on Mini vMac
