Mini vMac has no preference settings, which helps to keep it small, simple, and reliable. Instead, options can be chosen at compile time. You can compile a variation of Mini vMac with options you desire following the instructions on the Build page.
Or, I can compile variations for you.
With a donation to the Gryphel Project of ten dollars or more, you will receive a “Sponsor Code” that can be used to request custom variations, as many as you could reasonably want for a period of a year. You can make as many copies of these variations as you want, and give them to anyone, under GPL license.
Without a Sponsor Code, you can request Demo versions, that are identical to the regular version, except that the word “Demo” floats around the emulated screen.
Select the options you desire from the Mini vMac Variations Service page, including your Sponsor Code if you have one, then press the “Request custom variation” button at top. (The link in each option’s name leads to documentation for that option.)
A page will appear saying that it is “Compiling”. This page will periodically reload until the compile is finished, usually within a few minutes. A download link will appear. Click on the link to download your compiled variation. (You should probably also save the page, to record the options chosen and other details.)
To prevent taking too much space on my hosting provider’s computers, older custom variations will eventually be removed. So please download your variation promptly.
After you download the variation, extract the application from the archive, and place the appropriate ROM image file into the same folder, just as is done for the standard compile of Mini vMac. Mini vMac does not create preference files or change registry settings or make any other changes to your computer. So there is no problem in having multiple variations of Mini vMac installed.
The Variations Service only promises to build variations accurately from the public Mini vMac source. No guarantee is made that the built variations are suitable for any purpose. (Please report any bugs.) It is possible that some variations can not be built at all due to bugs in the Mini vMac source. Otherwise, requested variations will be built eventually, but there is no guarantee of how long it will take, due to hardware failures and such issues.
