Altirra 3.0 Mac Wine Port

Recommended Posts

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.

Cool. Nice work!

 

 

Hi Fletch,

 

Thanks, but here:

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/256928-altirra-28-wine-port-for-macos-sierra/?do=findComment&comment=4019809

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.

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?

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. :-)

DrVenkman does it run on your Mac?

 

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

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....

Many thanks to everyone who has worked hard to make it easy for us to run Altirra on macOS!

 

Has anyone else had trouble with the 64-bit version? I tried to run it on High Sierra 10.13.4. The icon just bounces in the dock and then goes away; the program doesn't launch. Also the icon file doesn't seem to be working.

@electronizer:

Post #11 is for 32 Bit and post #15 is for 64 Bit. Sorry, for being unclear.

Please try again.

 

 

Thanks! I was trying the file from post #15 (38.49MB). It's that file that I'm having trouble getting to work.

Post #11 for macOS <= 10.12.x

Post #15 for macOS >= 10.13.x

It only works, when in the application folder and no name altering, same with TURBAN.

I know this is a long shot , but I just got a MB Pro with the touch bar and I'm trying to get BetterTouchTool to work with Altirra in Wine for Start/Select/etc. So far I can only get the reset and help to work. The others are setup exactly the same way, but are not responsive in Altirra. Anybody else tried to get this to work?

Hi jc13, the Mac isn't important, the system is. What are you running? Sierra, High Sierra or even Mojave, which isn't running with Altirra as far as I know.

Running High Sierra - Wine and Altirra 3.0. Using BetterTouchTool which is a 3rd party OSX app that lets you create touch bar customizations for apps that don't support it natively. The Reset and Help keys will work in Altirra - the others seem to work maybe one out of 20 times. I think it may be a bug or just the way BTT works, but it seems like the sent keystroke is too fast for Altirra to see it. Changing the key from "Select" to say "q" works fine, so it's some weird interaction that's going on... Just thought I'd ask in case someone had tried to do this before.

I know I started this off with Altirra, but to rule out Wine, I migrated over to testing with the Mac port of Stella.

 

Tried this AppleScript to send F1 (Select) and it does not work:

tell application "Stella" to activate

tell application "System Events" to key code 122

Tried this AppleScript to send F3 (Select) and it does work:

tell application "Stella" to activate

tell application "System Events" to key code 99

Both Stella and Altirra seem to have problems processing the keystrokes for Start and Select (and Option), but the other keys seem to work. No big deal - just trying to do something useful with the Touch Bar and not having any luck. Sorry to drag this off topic.

I guess I'm missing something. Got the file from post #15, copied it to Applications.

Started, a little popup said Wine had to update which disappeared and that was it.

Now pretty much nothing happens.
