  1. I've fixed the ordering on the web page. @Ripdubski, I'm not seeing the issue with the Inverse button on my machine, but it might be ROM or some other differences. PM or email me at [email protected] and let me know your setup. The TouchBar idea is a great one, guess I never thought of it as I'm not blessed to have a Mac with one on it. (My daughter the Architecture student has one, but she's headed back to school). I've done some preliminary research, shouldn't be an issue putting it in 5.3. Let's talk about that more offline as well. (And other's can chime in as well).
  2. All I released Atari800MacX version 5.2.1 today. It is just a small bug fix, it turns out when I added the ATASCII printer I inadvertently broke the other emulated printers. I found that while testing the upcoming 5.3 release, but that is still a week or two off so thought I would release this bug fix. Mark
  3. Hi all, A new version of Atari800MacX, the Atari XL/XE/5200 emulator for MacOS is available now. Here are the full release notes: New Features/Bug Fixes (in version 5.2.0): Added a new printer emulation which is able to print ATASCII graphics characters, which is very useful for printing a program listing to a PDF. Added Austin Franklin 80 Column card emulation Added Bit3 Full View 80 Column card emulation. Added a feaure to automatically switch between the normal Atari display and the 80 column display.</li> Bugs Fixed: Fixed issue where XEP80 display was not cleared on system reset. Download it here: https://github.com/atarimacosx/Atari800MacX/releases/tag/Release_5.2.0 The 80 column emulation is a bit rough in this release, in that it uses a separate window with a different aspect ration for the 80 column cards. This will be cleaned up in version 5.3.0, which will be coming out in the next month. It's also going to include some other features, including native Mac fullscreen, instead of the libSDL version now used. Not on the ATASCII printer emulation, it now includes the ability to use another font, such as the ones that Mr. Robot mentioned in a previous post: https://atari8bit.net/atari-fonts/ . Mark
  4. All, the Release version of Atari800MacX should be available in a week or so. I took Mr Robot's suggestion, and although the Alpha version didn't have it, the release version will all the user to pick an installed truetype font from the computer. It just needs to have the Atari character set mapped to the correct unicode values as Mr. Robot's fonts do. (Also, 5.2 is going to include Bit3 and Austin Franklin 80 column display emulation).
  5. Bob is correct. Since my time to work on the emulator is very sporadic due to work commitments, I no longer feel comfortable taking donations personally. The Internet Archive does a lot of work to preserve these old systems, so for those who feel the need to donate, I believe it should go there. I changed the program link and program help links, but forgot to update the web page which I've now done. Mark
  6. @slx, The issues with hotplug should be solved with the 5.0.4 release. The polling the number of joysticks seems to work, and I was also able to the get the gamepad removal/insertion is detected even when Preferences are open, by causing the polling to happen on the main thread then too.

  9. @slx, That is not an intended feature. I've long tried to get Joystick/Gamepad hotplug to work correctly with the SDL Framework. The Events do not seem to work for new or removed devices, and I also tried to use the native Mac OSX notifications instead. I've looked at it again tonight, and found that polling the number of joysticks from the SDL Library may be able to be used for detection of insertion and removal. That shows promise, but there are some things that still do not work for dynamic insertion. Hopefully I will find the rest of the issues soon, and can release a new version to fix it. @slx, That is not an intended feature.

  13. There isn't currently a way to do key mapping in the emulator, and it would be fairly involved to add, I won't say never, but not soon. Have you tried Karabiner? https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/ . I think it can do some sophisticated key remapping, but not sure if that will help or not.
  14. All, I've received several emails about my donation link being down, and several people asked me to post a PayPal link in a separate thread. The service I used to use for donations (kagi.com) went bankrupt several years ago. Donations are by no means required, if you want I do have a PayPal account, and if you have one, you could donate via http://paypal.me/markgrebe/ Thanks, Mark
  15. All, I've released a new version of Atari800MacX, 5.0.1. It can be downloaded from https://github.com/atarimacosx/Atari800MacX/releases or http://www.atarimac.com/downloads.php . Many thanks to Paulo Garcia for all his hard work on the new Media Status Panel images!!! Added support for macOS Mojave Dark Mode - including new Media Status Panel images.* Added Inverse Key to Function Key Window. Bugs Fixed: Fix spelling errors in Preferences panel. Patched keyboard issues caused by libSDL 2.0 - International keyboard translation is always enabled now Mark
