MacWorks XL 3.0 will run up to System 3.2/Finder 5.3, IIGC (If I Googled Correctly).

MacWorks Plus 1.0.18 or 1.1h will run up to System 6.0.2 (6.0.3 will run, but some features are not fully implemented).

I believe the emulator currently supports MacWorks XL 3.0 and earlier, but perhaps MacWorks Plus will also work.

MacWorks Plus II will run up to System 7.5. However, I suspect that MW+II won't run properly on the current emulator (since MW+II included extra hardware).

>how do I make images of mac oses for use with macworks? thanks! :-)

I would expect the simplest thing is to look for the Mac System Install disk images read-to-use (eg. in the DiskCopy 4.2 image format)

Or, use DiskCopy 4.2 or DART to make an image from a (real) floppy disk.

This may be a hallucination, but I recall an image mounter program that could mount a disk image as a writable volume; with that, you could drag installer files from a CD to build the image.

Those alternatives presuppose that you can run 68k software, which may NOT be the case if your only Mac is intel. If that is your situation, then look around for one of the many good deals on an old Mac with a floppy drive!

HTH, James
