I'm sure someone else has bottled this already, but if not here is an Altirra 3.0 Wine port for macOS.

 

Note that it is the 32-bit version and you might get a notification about 32 bit apps if you are on High Sierra.

 

Let me know if you have any issues as I only did a very quick test.

Hi Fletch,

 

Thanks, but here:

http://atariage.com/...a/#entry4019809

is a version around 100 MB less in size with full credits to Avery Lee.

Complete open with a picture on how to do it on your own.

A 64 Bit version is also finished, please give me some time.

Why is this referred to as a port? It's the original binary provided as part of a bundle.

Its a bottle, I'm sorry for choosing the wrong the term.  I'm not a programmer, just ran it through Wine Bottler.  Sorry for the confusion.

No confusion here, but an actual macOS port of Altirra would be a historically significant event. :)

Be cool, I am just a wannabe padawan, 1st year...

 

Did discover this over the great work of others, so the credits go to them.

 

To my mind, we are very close to that goal. Up to now, we have a running Altirra 32 Bit on macOS up to 10.12.x

 

And last weekend, I received a 64 Bit version running under 10.13.x

 

Yes, we are on the edge of that breakpoint. The main problem is: who can host the shrinked file?

How big is the file? Too big to upload here in a dedicated thread? If so, why not post it to a GitHub account?

Hope not too many are downloading this...

 

Please put in applications folder and don't alter the name. If Avery brings out a new version, just open the package (right click) and replace Altirra.exe

 

Have fun.

Last time I checked, you can upload files on AtariAge up to 50 MB.

Thank you Mr.Fish, great :-)

 

Problem is solved.

;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)

 

Please see attachment and remove

 

.txt

 

from the file.

 

This version should run up to macOS 10.12.x, but not on 10.13.x

 

When a new version of Altirra comes out, go to:

 

/Applications/Altirra.app/Contents/Resources/wineprefix/drive_c/winebottler/Altirra.exe

 

and just replace

 

Altirra.exe

 

with the new version from Avery. That's all. :-)

Sadly, I am Mac-less (unMac'ed? Sans Mac? :) ) for over a year now. My ancient MacBook Pro suffered a graphics card failure and when I was looking to replace it, the then-new 2016 MBP line was decidedly underwhelming, even before the $500 price bump as compared to comparable models from prior years. I had no choice but to replace it with a Win-box.

Sad to hear. But since 2012, what Apple has done with fixed RAM and SSD in the MacBook (Pro), I really don't like...

 

Anyway thanks for the like. :-)

Altirra 3.0 in 64 Bit for macOS >= 10.13.x:

 

Please see the attachment and remove

 

.txt

 

from the file.

 

Please un7z the file and put the app into the applications folder and don't alter the name. If Avery brings out a new version, just open the app-package (mouse right click on the app) and replace Altirra64.exe only:

 

/Applications/Altirra.app/Contents/Resources/wineprefix/drive_c/winebottler/Altirra64.exe

 

Have fun.

 

Mega thanks to:

Avery Lee

skr

 

without them, nothing would run here and I wouldn't even know how spell Altirra!

 

The community is deep in your debt! Please go ahead with your outstanding work and let us know your PayPal me-address. :-)

Thanks to the bottlers!

Indeed. Got myself a 2015 model when the new touchbar/Keyboard design appeared and hope it will last for a couple of years....
