I've added a disk image of the original install floppy.

Good grief what a complicated messy performance, not helped by the USB drive refusing to mount when plugged into the Mac, but did when plugged into the USB hub (the opposite of how the USB DVD drive works). Sad

I lost track a bit of exactly what eventually worked mucking around in SheepShaver (OS9), Basilisk (System 7.5), and Mini vMac (System 6 and 7), but I think it's a StuffIt 3 archive of a ShrinkWrap 2 disk image. It certainly mounts happily in everything from System 6 through to macOS X High Sierra!

Wouldn't be a bad thing to have an image of the original disk uploaded as well!

I had one of the simpler Gravis Gamepads with my old PowerMac G3 right through to MacOS 9. It was a great little joystick that I used for many games. It was also handy whenever my mouse button broke - I could still use the mouse to move the cursor and the gamepad to click the buttons. Smile

The Gamepad went to hardware heaven along with the PowerMac, but I have still got the original installer floppy disk (just checked it and it's the same 1.0.6 version as in the screenshot above).
