  1. I did a podcast on it some time ago: https://inverseatascii.info/2015/11/10/s2e04-atari-home-filing-manager/
  2. Good to know. Maybe daily if I do them all at once.
  3. It has taken me WAAAAAAY too long to complete this. The first installment of Podfolio is ready for consumption. This podcast is dedicated to worlds first palm top computer - the Atari Portfolio. 13 installments total. I'm releasing the first one now to gauge reception. The rest will either be released weekly or all at once near the beginning of July. The podcast itself will be published through the Inverse ATASCII distribution channels, namely iTunes (Apple Podcasts) and the Inverse ATASCII website. There will be associated supplementary content embedded in the Inverse ATASCII web site, a post for each installment which will include images, screen shots, etc. Podfolio 01 The Overview: https://inverseatascii.info/2019/06/08/podfolio-01-the-overview-supplement/ Thanks for listening.
  4. Yep, and you can get it cheapest buying the Bookkeeper kit.
  5. Tried removing the 850 handler from boot. Still not making progress. I do not get an OK response from AT.
  6. I can't seem to connect to a BBS using Atari800MacX 5.0.1 on MacOS 10.14.3, though I think I have everything configured right. Atari800MacX Settings: R: patch enabled R: path port 8888 (incoming, so doesn't matter I think) Load 850 handler via outrun.sys (not sure if this step required) Run terminal software Issue ATDI site.address port (ATDI per the Atari800MacX instructions - ATDT doesn't work either) but I'm getting nothing back What am I doing wrong? Thanx
  7. I can't seem to get the cursor keys to work in 501 on my MacBook Pro. Is there a special config I need to set? I checked the preferences and tried both ctrl and without ctrl. I also checked that Mission Control wasn't using the keys. (edit) Nevermind. Joystick emulation was turned on for stick 1 as left keyboard. Leaving post intact in case someone searches on this in future.
  8. Woohoo! Thanks and congratulations! Oh, and feature request: -Addition of INVERSE keys to system console key menu.
  9. Thanks Mark! As I did before, I'm happy to beta test again in the future.
  10. Trying to keep the MacOS versions in one thread. Try here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/286036-altirra-on-macos-update-thread/?p=4177266
  11. Added 7z version of the Altirra 3.1 macOS package. Thanks Roland for the repackage. This one is smaller and hosted directly from AtariAge. You will need to do the rename at the command prompt: mv Altirra31_Mojave.7z.txt Altirra31_Mojove.7z Then you need something that will extract 7z on macOS. Unarchiver is free, in the app store, and does a good job without any annoyance.

  14. Noted and noted. I don't particularly care about double clicking to launch an XEX any more. I generally play games on real hardware. I did this ONLY so there was an easy way for Mac users to just unzip the emulator application and be able to launch it (and have sound). It's working for me now and I don't have Wine installed or any bottler. Thats really all I care about. If you don't like this, don't use it. I looked at PlayOnMac, guess what, its Wine too. Maybe they have magic voodoo that lets it work now and in the future on Mac despite Wine itself not being in the same state.
  15. 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/forums/topic/256928-altirra-28-wine-port-for-macos-sierra/?hl=%2Baltirra+%2B2.9&do=findComment&comment=4081583 Altirra 3.0 Then move to the his Wine bottled Altirra 3.0 thread: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/278822-altirra-30-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 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.com/s/n8q30oexq5ymrju/Altirra30_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.com/s/xhsvfxs38y3z1vi/Altirra31_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: Altirra31_Mojave.7z.txt 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.
