Opcode 4.22 68k Fatbinary install - 'type 1 error on launch'
« on: October 30, 2017, 02:16:29 AM »
hi,

i installed the 'fat' version of StudioVision and it started up the once but never again.  Now i keep getting 'type error 1' when i try to launch and it seems to crash at the point it checks out 'quicktime'.  I have trashed the install and OMS but it makes no difference and neither does removing quicktime.

Any ideas?

840av, studio 5lx and audiomedia ii.

*SOLVED*

Go to preferences and trash the opcode preferences file

/systems folder/preferences/Studio Vision 4.2 Prefs

nicely done  8)
what was the advantage, i wonder, of using FAT filesystem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Allocation_Table
instead of HFS/Mac format https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HFS_Plus

or have i misunderstood?? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fat_binary

Apple's fat binary
A fat-binary scheme smoothed the Apple Macintosh's transition, beginning in 1994, from 68k microprocessors to PowerPC microprocessors. Many applications for the old platform ran transparently on the new platform under an evolving emulation scheme, but emulated code generally runs slower than native code. Applications released as "fat binaries" took up more storage space, but they ran at full speed on either platform. This was achieved by packaging both a 68000-compiled version and a PowerPC-compiled version of the same program into their executable files. The older 68K code (CFM-68K or classic 68K) continued to be stored in the resource fork, while the newer PowerPC code was contained in the data fork, in PEF format.[1]

Fat binaries were larger than programs supporting only the PowerPC or 68k, which led to the creation of a number of utilities that would strip out the unneeded version. In the era of small hard drives, when 80 MB hard drives were a common size, these utilities were sometimes useful as program code was generally a large percentage of overall drive usage.

nice retro rig you have there! sound-tools capable

As for my rig i'm getting there.  I recapped my 840av the other day and improved the grounding.

Fat binary is an Application format. FAT is windows file system less capable than Macintosh HFS.
