    It works great though I do have one request. Would it be possible to make it so that if you switch the mouse mode (or get any other vmac message) you can use the L shoulder button to dismiss the message rather than having to press "c" on the emulated keyboard? It is kind of annoying having to dig my stylus out just because I hit the A button by accident.

    Which would you rather have first?
    Sound or a Macintosh II variant with colour?

    Benchmarking shows that the o3ds runs at roughy ~1.5x and the new3ds at ~4.5x.
    It's unclear if either will run fullspeed with Macintosh II emulation because the emulated CPU is 2x faster and the framebuffer conversion is slower*

    *Goddamnit DMP WHERE ARE THE INDEXED COLOUR MODES?!

    Sound then color. Also a bigger keyboard for those with big fingers (like me)

    So is this project dead? I would have loved sound and color support.

    Work is still being done off and on, IRL issues came up for a bit but recently it's been better.

    New github repo here:
    https://github.com/TaraHoleInIt/minivmac-3ds

    I haven't done a release yet because I never feel like I've "done enough" so there's always one more thing to add/ect.
    That being said colour support is going to be in the next release and I'm hoping to get around to sound in the next few days.

    It's actually in a buildable state even and works as is, I just wanted to get a bit more work done before saying anything.

    Stay tuned :)

    Doesn't concern you.
    This is turning out quite nicely @TarableCode!
    Love the new colours!

    There was an issue with the earlier released builds, please re download from my github linked in the first page.
    I set the clear colour to lime green for testing and forgot to put it back XD

    Copy the 3ds folder to the root of your SD card, and copy Macintosh ROM files into /3ds/vmac/
    For Macintosh Plus emulation you need vMac.ROM and for Macintosh II emulation you need MacII.ROM.

    You also need bootable disk images which I recommend setting up using the desktop version of Mini vMac before copying them over to your 3DS.
    Lots of documentation is available at the author's site: http://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/

    Those can be installed to the home menu using FBI.

    Do you have a list of md5/sha1 checksums for said rom files? Also on the macII version how much RAM is emulated and is the MMU emulated?
