With Atari800MacX not fully functional with macOS Sierra and with no guarantees that it ever will be, I decided to make a Wine port of Altirra 2.80.  It seems to function just fine.  The sound works, USB joysticks work, and the frame rate seems fine so I'm going to start to use it.

 

I tried to attach the file here on AtariAge, but it is over the 50mb limit.  I created a DropBox and placed it there: https://www.dropbox....ltirra.zip?dl=0

 

Hopefully Phaeron is ok with that.  If not, please let me know and I will take it down immediately.

 

I hope this helps my fellow Mac users until a native solution appears.

 

-Pete

I've used Altirra under Wine for about a year. Everything works just fine. I know it doesn't have a native OS X interface but, in this case, that's ok for me with how often Avery updates it.

Thanks, downloading.  I have both Mac and Windows so it will be nice to have Altirra on Mac as well.  Never really been much of a fan of Atari800MacX.

I've updated the Wine port to Altirra 2.9.  Seems to work ok for me.  Let me know if you have any issues.

I´ve installed Altirra without bottling it, because I use it in combination with eclipse (WUDSN). But for me, Debugging doesn´t work.

You´re package looks good, also debugging works, but how can I call it from eclipse? My method using a shell-file doesn´t work with your package.

Got it working, simpply had to place my shell-script in altirra.app/Contents/Resources/wineprefix/drive_c/winebottler/ and point to it in Eclipse. Thanks for your work. :)
