So they cancelled my order. I have one already anyways and I'm pretty sure Brad and Bruce have plenty of new ones.

Yep, and you can get it cheapest buying the Bookkeeper kit.

#4177266 Altirra on macOS (Update Thread)

Posted by Ripdubski on Fri Dec 14, 2018 8:18 PM

Since most of us Mac users like single clicky launch thingies, I thought it might be a good idea to have a single thread for macOS Altirra to make it easier to find all relevant information and files for each release. 

 

Altirra 2.8

Lets start with Peters original thread for a Wine bottled Altirra 2.8 (32 bit):

http://atariage.com/....9#entry4081583

 

 

Altirra 3.0

Then move to the his Wine bottled Altirra 3.0 thread:

http://atariage.com/...-mac-wine-port/

 

I polluted that thread (my bad) with an update for 3.1, including all the instructions for what it took to get it both 3.0 and 3.1 running under macOS 10.14 Mojave.  Instructions that were cobbled together from the threads:

 

1) Take Peters original 2.8 download (bottle) and extract it.

2) Move the "altirra.app" (from extraction) to Applications folder.  I also renamed it to "Altirra" from "altirra".
3) Take the download from post #15 (in the 2.8 thread above) for MacOS >= 10.13, and extract it.
4) Open Applications folder, and choose "Show Package Contents" from the context menu (right click) of "Altirra".
5) Open folder where post #15 (2.8 thread) was extracted, and choose "Show Package Contents" from the context menu of "Altirra.app".
6) In both windows navigate to the Resources folder.
7) Copy the following files from the post #15 Altirra.app Resources folder into the Altirra.app Resources folder from Petes bottle:
     - File: Wine.bundle
     - Folder: wineprefix
8) Close Finder windows.
 
Launch Altirra, run through setup.  You'll need to navigate to your ROMS and CARTs folders using the / folder and then the tree where its stored.  Seems the Wine stuff doesn't respect any aliases.
 

I zipped the 3.0 release Wine/Altirra Application (package) in a zip that can be extracted and run as is, without having to go through all those steps.  Here:

https://www.dropbox....Mojave.zip?dl=0

 

 

Altirra 3.1

I then updated the package for the 3.1 release by performing these steps:

To get this, I took the 3.10 binaries from the Altirra site, and copied them to the folder "Altirra.app/Contents/Resources/wineprefix/drive_c/winebottler".  Files:
   - Additions.atr
   - Altirra.chm
   - Copying
   - Altirra.exe
   - Altirra64.exe
 
Just replacing the files still launched the 3.0 version.  I did some additional thread digging and found that I also had to remove the following (one or more of these had cached data).  Your install may vary in name:
~/Library/Application Support/Wine
~/Library/Application Support/Avery Lee_152528885525251
~/Library/Application Support/com.altirra_15264834116685   (current bundle identifier)

 

I then zipped the 3.1 release Wine/Altirra Application (package) in a zip file that can be extracted and run as is, without having to perform the additional steps.  Here:

https://www.dropbox....Mojave.zip?dl=0

 

 

Alternate location in 7z format with smaller size (thanks Roland).  Remove the .txt after downloading.  See post #12 for details on extraction:

Attached File  Altirra31_Mojave.7z.txt   38.84MB   39 downloads

 

 

Status

2018.12.14: This was working fine before the 10.14.2 update.  With 10.14.2, it still works but will generate a warning about application compatibility in a future macOS release.

2018.12.14: Updated the 3.1 zip after editing the package metadata.  Altirra in macOS application title now shows as proper case.  Package version info also shows as 3.1 instead of 3.0, and Avery is credited.

2018.12.20: Added 7z version of Altirra 3.1, served directly from AtariAge.

#4099764 Scarborough Systems' Your Personal Net Worth

Posted by Ripdubski on Sun Aug 26, 2018 7:48 PM

I was just flipping through a September '85 issue of Family Computing when I came across this ad. Something I flipped right past 33 years ago, being a 17 year old who didn't give a damn about my net worth at the time, but this time it caught my eye, and then I became very interested when I noticed at the bottom of the picture of the box that it's for Atari 8-bits too!

 

Has anyone ever come across this in the wild? How about an ATR. of it on-line? I checked Atarimania, no luck, then thought I'd ask here...

 

Late to reply, but I have a copy in my bookshelf.  It was intended to be covered in an upcoming Inverse ATASCII episode.

#4022446 Atari800MacX macOS Sierra sound not working

Posted by Ripdubski on Sun May 6, 2018 7:39 PM

I've been playing around with getting Atari800MacX compiled and working under current OS and using SDL 2.  I've cleared up a great many compilation errors, and there is still a lot of code adaption required for SDL2.  I've been slowly working through these.  Anyone interested in helping?  I did try to get Atari800 emulator to compile but it has its own fair share of fixes needed.
