For System 7.0 - 7.6
Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

This is a Mac emulator of the BBC Micro Computer from Acorn. There are both 68k and PPC versions inside the archive. For running this properly, you must drag 2 ROM files (MOS and BASIC) into the ROMs folder and rename them "OSROM" and "BASIC". ROM files can be found on the web.

From the User Guide file:

The BBC Micro was a computer built by a British company called Acorn Computers who now build the RISC-based Archimedes. It appeared in the early '80s and was backed by the British Broadcasting Company; hence the BBC tag. The BBC even produced a series of TV programmes to help beginners new to computing. Primarily designed for schools and home use, the BBC Micro was certainly one of the most versatile machines of its day, sporting a host of expansion ports and buses and equipped with an excellent, structured BASIC which even today is still being sold commercially. And, of course, it was the launching pad for one of the most endearing games of all time, Elite.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC

At least a 68030 processor (68040 @ 25 MHz processor or better recommended) for the 68k version.
A PowerPC processor for the other application version.
SSW 7 or later for all the versions.

I have not tested it with BII or Mini vMac but it could works. It works with SheepShaver, however. But I have not succeeded to use it with ROM archives provided from Internet. Sad
