Curiously, the DL file named "gomac_2.1.1.hqx_.hqx" is not a ".hqx" file at all.

- It is actually a StuffIt 5x type ".sit" file.

You can simply rename this file to "gomac_211.sit" or similar and it will unstuff just fine.

Aha now the screenshots are there. Very nice shots, too.

Thanks for locating this version. It works the best on Mac OS 9.x.

Strange, I typed serial in SheepShaver without Ctrl+V and it accepted it.

I've found with Sheepshaver, sometimes it will not accept pasted-in serial numbers. Not always, but sometimes - and then, what normally should be upper-case, you need to use lower-case. If you can't do a normal cut-n-paste 1st up, then you need to try typing in by hand, and if it still doesn't accept, try changing the upper-lower case parts. It "may" then work.

It appears that you tried to get in a few screenshots with the upload too, but they also didn't take?
