Guides on emulating older applications

This is a 2-CD-ROM collection of scientific, medical, design, OS, and development application demos that was bundled with Power Macintosh computers sold in Japan.

The PLEASE_READ file contains a text file with an English translation of the text file named "OYOMI KUDASAI" ("Please read") included on both disc volumes.

I posted too soon. The formatting gets messed up on Windows, but looks fine on Mac. Hooray!

Ugh! Zipping the text file really jacked-up the formatting in the PLEASE READ. Any ideas?

I just uploaded a zipped ISO image of the Volume 1 disc. Enjoy.

I will upload a partial translation of the README file that's included with both volumes. In addition to the portion I've translated, the original file also lists all the demo applications with contact information and a brief description. I'll continue translating and replace the file when I'm done.

(I had never seen anyone differentiate "discs" and "disks" before the previous set of changes to this page. It looks like Apple decided to use the "c' word for optical media and the "k" word for magnetic. Since we're all Mac fans here, I won't complain about following Apple's lead. Wink )

@Fortuna_Wave I don't but I will ask the benefactor who gave me my Mac if he's got a set.

Not very well. I tend to use online translators a lot these days.

@Protocol 7: I just with the seller had put the 2 CDs up as a set and saved me a buck and change in postage. So you read Japanese?

I spotted it yesterday when I was having a look through the auctions. Didn't want to say anything in case it looked pushy, but I'm glad to hear you snapped it up Smile

It'll be nice to have the complete set. I'm curious to see what it holds.

Hello papa. Thank you for sharing this, I like it. Do you have Macintosh system discs in Japanese?

The Volume 1 disk was just put on auction and I've snapped it up, too. Stay tuned.
