my solution should be different.
i want use only 1 device such as 50 MB MacOS system with games installed here.
when i double click, gamebase must load basilisk2 and launch the game like with vmac or fusion via dosbox.

Yup, i noticed that for a few games as well. (not all)
maybe it's a newer OS version or config problem.
If it is, will just need to make boot disks with OS7, OS7.53, OS7.55, OS8.
I still get a message warning me that cdenable.sys could not be found even though it is copied to the system32\drivers dir?
Found this Info...

64-bit Windows compatibility

Both the cdenable.sys driver and the basilisk ethernet driver will not work in 64-bit Windows versions. Therefore you can't access cd-roms and can't make appletalk work on these windows versions. You can, however, make .iso images of your cd roms and add them to the volumes list in the BasiliskII GUI. For internet access you can use the “slirp” option. You can place the cdenable.sys driver in the \Windows\SysWOW64\drivers folder to get rid of the (faulty) error reported about not being able to find the driver in the \windows\system32\drivers folder.

The currently available experimental 64-bit GTK package has not been tested with BasiliskII.

Thanks .mad.

It's an interesting project this one and I'm sure there's a hell of a lot more 68k games out there to add.

YES, you must uncompress the SIT file first.

Sorry, i don't have your SIT version of Final Doom.

This is the Installer CDR version, so the current script won't work.
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/final-doom

I installed the game to the OS 7.5.5 HD.
and it seems to work ok.

sometimes it crashes, after quitting TNT Evilution then loading the Plutonium Experiment.
you must quit the emulator and reboot the mac.

ahhhhh
you don't have extract sit archives. you have compressed my dsk files.

however don't works to me.
i note that if i delete basiliskII.prefs and i re-set again, emulator works, but when i start it from gamebase i have only a crash windows.
If i start again basiliskII from icon, i have the same crash windows.

So i have to delete the prefs anytimes..
i think there are no way to find a solution for my systems..

i tried excatly like in your video, but i have only a crash errors..
on windows XP, emulator don't start..
maybe all this problems i could avoid with 32bit systems
i'll continue with vmac and fusion..
