Hello,

since the last OS X update I don´t have sound with Atari800MacX. It is disabled bei default, but at the moment I enable sound, it crashes. This true for both my MacBook Pros. One was just set up from the scratch and I´ve downloaded the installer for Atari800MacX, but it crashes.
If I leave sound disabled, everything runs fine without crashes. But also without sound.

Any idea or alternative Emulator for OS X?

Atari800MacX uses some deprecated audio API (I'm generalising) which is no longer reliable in Sierra. I believe the emulator's author has an interest in fixing it or releasing source code. In the meantime, one may run Altirra under WINE with very few issues, or compile Atari++ to run natively.

I don't think this will help but there is source code. Last updated time is 2014 (news is older than that) 

https://sourceforge....atari800/3.1.0/

The GPL atari800 runs fine with sound in 10.12, it's only Atari800MacX that doesn't.

Gozar is making reference to this one: http://atari800.sour....net/index.html

 

Try it.

Thanks.

Altirra.exe (not Altirra64.exe) does the job with Wine. I´ve tried to compile Atari 800, but failed. It complains about missing SDL 1.2.0. Downloaded it but make failed due to missing carbon.h
Also got SDL 1.2.15, but still complains about missing 1.2.0

Any hint? Any compiled binary for Sierra?

Thanks gozar, homebrew did the job! Now atari800 is running from terminal, but I have to figure out how to link to the ROMs etc.
