New VAS Archive goes Live

The vMac Application Site Archive is now online and available to all users.  the site features all of the downloads from the original site and includes links to a few new sites that are currently serving the void left when Geocities shut down.

If we have misses anything or if there is something you thing should be here on the site, then feel free to let us know through the contact form on the website.

About this site

Over the past 8 years or so, the vMac  Applications Site has gone largely unchanged and neglected, becoming archive fodder multiple times.   This is an attempt to re-produce the vMac Applications Site and bring it in line with the efforts that are being made with Mini vMac.

We have included all of the applications and news from the old archived websites and have added a few links and items that are for items available now that Apple has changed some of its licensing.

If you find anything that is missing from this site that should be included, feel free to use the contact form to let us know.

Wow! Almost a month without updating! Here's some news on the Babya-OS front (see links page) There;s been an update. There's now a version 9.1! Check it out!

Also, I've been in contact with the creator of the original VAS. I might have a surprise from him shortly (he mentioned in a e-mail a while ago about a VAS2 that never got launched...)

Today I've replaced the WebTrends Live tracker with an even better one by Nedstat. And you can view the stats on this one!

Wednesday, February 13, 2002

Now we have a new main address because we have aquired two mirror sites in addition to the main sites. Our new home (if you haven't found it already) is at We have also adopted a new tracker, called 'WebTrends Live'. It is far more intense than our old one and you can't view my stats. Sorry :(

Today, I got a new host, Prohosting. They're awesome (for a free service) with 50 megs of space, CGI scripting, FTP, the works. The only problem is the banner ad. However, they tell me that if I reccommend the full Prohoisting services (you know the deal- everything you can possibly think of with an added fee, including , I believe, a .com domain), they'll remove my banner! So if you want to support the removal of our banner and are indifferent about where you host your own site, just check out, then e-mail them and tell them that vamcapps ( reffered you.

Our new address is:

Today, Eric Jones, aka Jonese, created the first official, working VAS Mirror at Please bookmark it as it will soon have full functionality (it doesn't have most packages as of yet), but when it does it will be smokin', with more hosting space than the primary site, no pop up ads and greater reliablity (ie: it won't close because of too much bandwidth). Bookmark it. NOW!

Today I have added a link to Babya System 9 OS. The developer's description: " The Babya System 9 operating system is already famous for innovations such as a Installer, Finder and control panels. Babya System 9.0 is the result of the developer listening to user requests and making improvements and new features, many of which aren't available anywhere else, or on any other platform. It features a clean interface, a powerful control panel, a built-in file server and a system information window, full drag-and-drop capabilities, support for file sharing with BabyaShare, and more." Sounds good to me:) You can find the link at the bottom of the Links Page.

Also, yesterday, after uploading those files I used up officially 98.2% of my space at Geocities. There won't be anymore new files until I can get another host. The VAS will still operate at it's full functionality, however. So keep on coming and keep on downloading! We won't close like the original VAS did!

Today I've added two new disk images. The first one is entitled "Applications #4" and can be found in the applications section. The second one is entitled "System 7.1" and is a spartan boot disk for all Macintosh computers that run System 7.1. It will work on vMac (or else I wouldn't have posted it up on this site. Duh!). It can be found in the booters section.

Today I added a links page that also contains contact information. This comes after sites have requested to link to me and I just wish to return the favor. I also add sites when I see that somebody has added a link to me, doesn't tell me about it, and it generates substancial traffic. You don't have to ask permission to link to me, just tell me so I can link to you. Thanx.

Today I've fixed It is one of my favorite packages, containing only a copy of David Alan Smith's "The Colony", the first game of it's type ever. It is in total 3D and you can explore everything. Try it out.

I have added frames. If there are any problems, let me know by e-mailing me here.

Finally, I added copies of System 6.0.8 and System 7.0.1 to the Booters section. Check them out!

I have been notified by VAS fan "Stiletto" that I am missing files. I am missing Games3.DSK, which contains "Colony". I'm posting it up soon. Also, when I stop being lazy, I'll update the descriptions for the games packages.

I would also like to take the time to welcome Morro to the Mac emulation community. His general emulation site can be found right here.

Also, If anybody is looking for more great software then check out our sister site Macintroid (link on the menu bar at the top of the screen), but also check out the System 6 Heaven because it has a HUGE archive of both games and apps, which ere System 6 and System 7 compatable. Yes, that means that most of them will work with the vMac Boot Disk available in our Booters section.

Finally, wanna taste of the original (and now defunct) VAS? Then check it out right here fresh from the Wayback machiene at, which periodically takes a snapshot of the whole internet (well, most of it). Most of the graphics are broken and the downloads aren't there, but you can get a feel for it.

Welcome to the new vMac Applications Site!

The VAS was originally the essential companion to vMac, the world's first free Macintosh Emulator. It included disk images and boot disks for System 5, System 6, System 7 and MacOS 7.5. Unfortunately, the company that hosted the VAS couldn't support the bandwidth that VAS generated and closed it down. However, BASICman, a Mac emulation enthusiast and Web Master of Macintroid had downloaded most of the disk images from the VAS, and decided to post a new VAS as a way to give back to the Mac emulation community.

VAS is an Archive recovery.  The site is largely the same as the original but with links  and information updated.
