Wrapped Lunar Phantom

Recipe for Mini vMac


Quick Summary

Install the game "Lunar Phantom" into a bootable disk image with "AutoQuit". This "wraps" the application, so that it can be used more as you would a native application.

Ingredients

The "Sys6Util.dsk" disk image file, from the "System 6 utility disk recipe".

The "Blanks" collection.

The "AutoQuit" disk image.

The "Lunar Phantom" disk image.

Start

Launch Mini vMac

Mount the image file "Sys6Util"

Unzip the file "1440K.zip" from the Blanks collection.

Mount the resulting "1440K.dsk" image in Mini vMac.

Open the "Untitled" disk, such as by double clicking on its icon.

...

Make the "Untitled" window larger.

...

...

Drag the "Untitled" window lower.

...

...

Drag the "System Folder" icon onto the "Untitled" disk icon.

(This copies the "System Folder" to the "Untitled" disk image, and automatically places the icon in a good place in the "Untitled" window.)

...

...

...

Mount "AutoQuit" disk image.

Drag the "AutoQuit" application icon onto the Untitled disk icon.

...

...

Start renaming the duplicate "AutoQuit" application by clicking on the icon name.

...

Type the new name exactly - "Finder". (Six characters, don't type the quotes.)

Type the "return" key to finish renaming.

Drag this "Finder" icon onto the "System Folder" icon.

This will replace the "Finder" that is already in the "System Folder". You will be asked if you really want to do this. (If you are not asked, then you didn't name the replacement exactly to "Finder".)

...

...

Click the "OK" button.

...

Drag the "AutoQuit" disk icon to the trash to eject the disk image.

...

...

Mount "Lunar Phantom" disk image.

Drag the "Lunar Phantom 1.0" application icon onto the Untitled disk icon.

...

...

Drag the "Lunar_Phantom" disk icon to the trash to eject the disk image.

...

...

Click in "Page Left" area.

...

...

Start renaming the "Lunar Phantom 1.0" application by clicking on the icon name.

This is needed because the name is too long for the "Set Startup..." command.

...

Type the Right Arrow key to put the insertion point at the end of the name.

Type the Backspace (Delete) key four times to rename the application to "Lunar Phantom".

Type the "return" key to finish renaming.

Choose "Copy" from the "Edit" menu.

Start renaming the "Untitled" disk image by clicking on the icon name.

...

Choose "Paste" from the "Edit" menu.

...

Click on the "Lunar Phantom" application icon to select it.

Choose "Set Startup..." from the "Special" menu.

...

Click the "OK" button.

...

Choose "Restart" from the "Special" menu.

...

Mount the image file "1440K.dsk" again

The Lunar Phantom application should launch, if the "Set Startup..." command worked.

Choose "Quit" from the "File" menu.

The Mini vMac application should quit by itself, if AutoQuit is working.

Rename the disk image "1440K.dsk" to "disk1.dsk", and place it in the same folder as a copy of Mini vMac (and a ROM image file). Then when this copy of Mini vMac is launched, it will immediately launch Lunar Phantom.

Further, you can rename this copy of Mini vMac to "Lunar Phantom". For most platforms (such as Mac and Windows), this will cause the Mini vMac window to be named "Lunar Phantom".

Done!
