[...] Anyway, thanks a lot for your work, it was really fun to be able to play with my children to Lode Runner in all its glory!

Hi, I’ve been a user of Mini vMac for about 9-10 years now, and enjoyed every moment of using it. [...]

mini vMac is really amazing. I am one of the original developers of After Dark, and I was able to run After Dark, and THINK C 5.0 inside Mini vMac on a modern Retina MBP with very little fuss. It's fast!

I can't express enough to you how nice it has been to be able to take a step into the past and relive the old Mac operating system. There's a staggering level of nostalgia hitting me that I can't describe every time I use your emulator, so I just wanted to thank you for taking care of such an important part of my past. :-)

[...] a word of thanks to you for your continued work on Mini vMac. It is without question the best emulator I have ever seen.

I was so amazed to find that mini vmac ran under Lion and so does (apparently) my Mac program that I wrote in 1991!!
Thanks so much for allowing me to retain this part of my life (and useful functionality).

I was touched when, accompanied by the well known ~SBeep~T, the old familiar screen of my Fat Mac appeared on my PC. It works beautifully. Even the scientific programmes I wrote in the programming language Basic on the Fat Mac perform very well in the mini Vmac. The Mini VMac is fast, reliable and good.

I just wanted to say thanks for keeping the fires burning on this project. These days, since I have moved to 64-bit Windows 7 as my primary OS, Mini vMac is the ONLY Mac emulator I've been to run at any level of stability on my Win7 systems. So, your effort is much appreciated, because I have to have my Mac fix now and then!

[...] love the program ... it has been INVALUABLE to me ... have been able to update edit & update files I've had stored for 20+ years

I tried Mini vMac on Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, it works well and it's so cute! I can show my kids how my first ever computer, a Mac Plus of course, looked like with its 9 inches black and white screen... memories!
Thanks for this great job,

This emulator is incredible. I had reduced expectations from prior experience with emulators, but this one is amazing. I was up and running and playing games I haven't seen in decades in no time at all. Great job!

I wanted to let you know that I've submitted a payment at Kagi. I've been doing custom builds of Mini vMac for some time, so I am not really in need of keys for your builds. However, I am incredibly pleased with how nicely Mini vMac works. Most impressive is the video/audio/mouse. Generally, emulators tend to feel a bit laggy/sluggish when it comes to input and they tend to not scale very well to the host screen resolution (not all, but a good portion). Mini vMac, however, is superbly done and full screen is just awesome.
Thank you for the work on this, I am enjoying using an SE again :)

[...] And thanks again for the great program. I spent a lot of time messing around with those little black and white computers when I was little, and it means a lot to be able to go back and relive some of that again. :)

MiniVMAC is great! Playing Dark Castle is just awesome, and it's a nive, light and fast emulator, ver well optimized too. [...]

Your program is a miracle! I thought I was never going to see my MindWrite word processor ever again. My 1992 PowerBook 180 has just expired, and I doubt I will be able to revive it.
I have donated $25 to keep your spirits up! MiniVMac really has been a miracle for me. I am now able to look at all my old correspondence again, back to 1984. Wonderful.
I would very much like to 'break faith' with the 512 x 342 screen size, though. The last time I did any serious work with my old software I had a Mac II, with a 1620 x 1260 black and white screen, plus a colour monitor, at times. I could fit a 100 lines of code, top to bottom, and have 8 or 9 different windows open in Think Pascal. Do you have any intention of extending the interface of the MacPlus? [A hack for larger screen sizes is now a compile time option.]
Once again, thank you very much indeed -- I have gone all around my college where I am studying computer software, showing off my old Mac, running on my new Mac! It really is wonderful.

What a great discovery. I run it on my Windows XP notebook. Some of the old classic games and apps, back again! And I have rediscovered many of my old documents. Very cool.
Thanks a bunch!
