RPCemu sounds good, but only in Alpha puts me off. So I have to use native apps on the Mac, none of which are anything like as versatile as good old RO apps!

I am using RPCEmu v0.8.9 for a long time on a Mac without to much trouble. Found (or adapted) a monitor file so am using 1680x1040, the max on my monitor. Never saw the screen problem. 

Did gave up on the network but not a great problem. Share the Mac disc and a old RiscPC can access the HostFS dir.

One point of warning. When you got it up and running, don't use the 'HardDisc4' for anything else than booting.  I write all the files to the HostFS dir.

Good luck,

Peter
