So my crappy work computer, a dell, doesn't have a CD burner.  My MacBook pro at home, though 5 years old, with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel, does.

 

Does anyone on here burn homebrew games on a Macintosh, and if so how do you go about it?  A step by step would be helpful, as my computer literacy these days extends to Microsoft office suite.

 

I've had some community members offer to burn me a few games and send them my way (and I offered to remunerate for expenses of course) but nothing ever came to fruition.  I'm at the point where I'm ready to get off my butt and do it myself so any help would be much appreciated.

 

I do have protector SE and a B&C bypass cart if either of those are necessary to boot (encrypted?) games..

I would think putting an EEPROM in the disc tray would not work.

Sorry I can't help, I don't have an Atari Jaguar.

Is Toast still a product? That's how I burned ISOs on 10.4

Hi,

I burned almost all my CD Jag homebrews on an iMac Intel.
At the beginning I installed Windows with Bootcamp but it is nolonger the only choice to run Discjuggler: you can use Wine to run it directly from Mac OS X.
Wine is a freeware you will easily find on internet.

I found some months ago a discussion about how to burn homebrew games for Sega Saturn using LiquidCD on a Mac but for the Jag it failed: burned CD-R were only recognized as audio CD :(

I forgot to mention than Wine allows Jiffi to work as well directly under Mac OS so no need of Windows at all.

I put considerable effort into finding a solution for this last year.

I have not tried again since I replaced the failed HDD. I will have to go through my stuff and see where I left off with this.

Yes, Toast exists for Mac. I have Toast 15 Titanium. The most recent advanced version is 16 Pro. I use it on MacOS Sierra. :)
