All right, confirmed the Mystery App that I’ve been writing about also doesn’t run on PowerPC Mac OS 9 on real hardware. So, thus far:

✅ 68000 Quadra running 7.5 (but crashy)
❌ 68000 emulators running 7.x
❌ PowerPC emulators running 8.x and 9.x
❌ PowerPC Mac running 9.x

@misty I still think you need to try it on an 030 tbh, though (my eBay alert for one of those extremely rare Mac Plus accelerators notwithstanding) I don't have any local leads and I think Se/30s and performas are expensive now
