I guess SoftwareFPU's usefulness must be exclusive to 68k machines (real or emulated) lacking an FPU

Yes, as PowerFPU is PPC only, there is no choice otherwise (AFAIK SoftwareFPU is the only FPU emulator for 68k Macs lacking an FPU).

@MTT Oh, I thought SheepShaver would freak out with PowerFPU somehow (considering it freaks out even with anything MMU-related, though that's a separate issue). But if it won't, then definitely that's far more recommended, as you stated. Smile

I guess SoftwareFPU's usefulness must be exclusive to 68k machines (real or emulated) lacking an FPU, then.

There's also PowerFPU, but I think that wouldn't work on SheepShaver.

Actually, PowerFPU is the FPU emulator to use in preference to SoftwareFPU on PPC & SheepShaver, being more than 10x faster in emulated 68k FPU performance.

@24bit I figure SoftwareFPU would probably make it work under SheepShaver. (There's also PowerFPU, but I think that wouldn't work on SheepShaver).

According to NativeChecker, the version here is 68k only.
The application does indeed look for a FPU, so a default SheepShaver setup will not work, but Basilisk II does fulfil the FPU request when FPU is enabled in the Basilisk II preferences.

I think that this is the first FAT version of Infini-D for Mac 68K with FPU and native PowerPC support

I don't have a machine with an FPU, so anyone else who would like to get a screenshot of this and post it is more than welcome to.
