I'm sorry but neither myself or starwindz are still attached to the project, starwindz who is the programming genius behind the gamepack is an incredibly busy guy in South Korea with an very demanding job so its unlikely there will be any updates in the future.

 

Sorry...You may want to look at the Gamebases forum incase anyone has ported them..

 

http://www.gamebase64.com/

 

There's also a much bigger Windows based gamebase which covers a huge number of titles

Mega has a 4-6 gig at one time limit, so you can either if you have a floating IP reconnect your internet connection and return with a new IP or just wait 4 hours and return..

 

Its a wonderful gamebase with a hell of a lot of hard work in it, obviously ours is better ;)

 

Seriously Mark the guy who made it is a friend and I've helped a tiny bit bit on his (and I do mean tiny), he's put 112- 15 years into maintaining it, if you 

 

There's also a small update with a hundred plus new games and extras her

Have fun,

 

Paul

 

Oh, just incase, if your games are in the gamebase and you want them out just let me know..

Just get a lockup on Wine on MacOS X.The initial dialog box does come up and says I have three options which are Update & Start Game pack, Cancel and Official Forum. When I select Update & Start Game Pack I just get a sand timer and it locks.

I'm sorry but the programmer no longer updates the program and rarely ever visits the forums due to a very  very busy job.

 

I wish I could help but he was the brains, I did all the Altirra related stuff..

 

Just thought of one possible fix..

 

Go to gamepack\ini\baseinforall.ini and delete that ini file, re run the gamepack exe and it will rebuild that ini file and hopefully work?

I wen't ahead and disconnected my internet connection. It got past the update dialog but then it crashes on the Mac. I tried the same thing on an old Windows XP laptop and it did the same lockup when trying to update. I suspect my firewall is blocking and the app can not handle that gracefully? With no internet connection on the XP box, I got the program to come up and run.It is a shame the program is not being updated, you can see it is a real labor of love.

It was but life for me and Starwindz changed in very different ways, we both became very busy for reason mentioned in the thread...

 

There's also a thing called Gamebase Atari by Mark Hardnman which is a bigger thing with all sorts of titles on it where ours was a best of.

There's a post from me about 5 previous to this with much more details..
