I've been reading about The Monte Method in MusicWorks' thread of the same name.

Here's what I got out of it:

1. Use FWB Hard Disk Toolkit to make a 750MB partition.

2. The second (larger) partition should contain all non-authorized content.

3. Subtract 1 from the beginning of the second partition to get size of first partition.

EX: Partition 1 from 0-844415; partition 2 from 844416 until end.

4. Deauthorize all software before loading image.

My Questions:

1. If the drive isn't partitioned, could making another partition mess with the authorizations, even if the drive has space for a partition?

2. Do I even need to partition? If I make an image of the whole drive, starting from bit 0 until end, it should work, right?

3. If I were to clone the drive, would it make a difference if I cloned it in a later-generation system with a different OS? Or, should I use a multi-connector SCSI cable with the PowerMac 7100 internal bus to do it in the native system?

4. Does the recipient drive have to be the same model as the donor drive, so that it's possible to specify that the information ends up in the same sectors between the two drives? Wouldn't that make a difference with some authorizations that check for exact location in the hard drive?

The drive that was sent to me has a lot of Nubus plugins on it that I can't replace. The (great) guy who sold it to me said that he had specific directions for The Monte method and cloning, but that they were in storage. I'm trying to get as much info as possible before attempting to backup. I might just wait until he gets back to me with directions.

MusicWorks' uploaded a file that supposedly copies key disks. The last user in the thread, Syntho, said the patcher worked. Can anyone else confirm if PT floppy images were successfully created? I'd love to be able to make images of the key disks without AppleSauce or Greaseweasle and upload them.

There you go. But, IMO, OS9 will be too heavy for NuBus.

Thanks for the file, ssp3! I have a G3 accelerator.

You're welcome!

Do you know if Pro Tools 4.2 authorization disks will work for Pro Tools 4.3? I've got a CD-ROM of  4.2 and 4.3, but authorizer floppies only for the former.

I think they will. Better ask Knezzen or someone who still uses that system. I've forgotten almost everything about ProTools compatibility  ;D

BUT! Unless you plan to run 'collector grade' PT4.x.x, you don't need authorizer floppies. Almost every version of 4.x.x up to 4.3.2 have been <redacted> in one way or the other.
(The only tricky part was getting 4.0.1 authorized on 68k using that elegant snap** method).

I'm not in a position where I can set up the system yet. I'm asking a lot of questions because I plan on archiving this software and getting it into the downloads probably early next year.

Half a year to copy and upload two CD-ROMs?!  :o

My computer with a CD-ROM died a couple years ago. The Power Mac 7100 isn't set up yet because I'm supposed to be packing stuff for a move... lol.

im all down to applesauce pro tools 1-4 and cubase 1-4 floppy disks
finding ones with authorisations is a heavy task and all resources will need to be combined to hunt down the last ones

we need to start with a google sheet overview of all floppy disks and then applesauce them and upload the images. this way, if you have the hardware you can install fresh.

Does Applesauce work with Pro Tools authorizers? I've never tried it and always wondered if it does. This was something that I planned to do, but didn't want to get an Applesauce only to find out that it can't copy the keydisks.

Does this mean 888/24 will work in a Nubus setup?;D I've got three 888/24 interfaces, but no original 16-bit 888s. Shouldn't the Pro Tools 888/24 be able to dither to accommodate the 16-bit Nubus card? Have you ever tried to use an 888/24 in a Nubus system? If so, what were the results? What exactly causes it to not work?

Yeah, they should work in 16bit mode. They are switchable between 16bit and 24bit using the Hardware Setup dialog on a 24|MIX system, but should "just work" in 16bit mode on a PTIII system.

Cool! That's great to know. :)

The MD5 algorithm got improved and now the title of this thread is wrong:

It's not 5x times. Now it is 6.5x faster! :)

Can't you or any other of the programmers here compile something better than 1.1.1 for OS9?

EDIT. I've dug up 1.0 source, maybe it can be improved further :D

We can try. The first step would be to try to compile that 1.0.0 version you just located as a starting point (thank you for finding and sharing it!). Sometimes there's no real secret to it, especially if a project file is included, which normally means opening it and clicking on "Make" or "Compile" or "Build" or whatever. If we had 1.1.1 beta, and its source, we could use it as a "stepping stone" to try to reach 2.x heights, but without it, it will be a greater leap (and effort, and higher chances of needing to fix up whatever is not working on Mac OS).

Personally, I'd not mind at least trying, but this is my "compile todo list" right now:
- latest source code of "MacZip";
- "Bochs", any version (yikes);

And my "Mac coding todo list":
- C game;
- Try to add useful things to md5classic (the new program by the Garden's legendary cracker "siddhartha77");
- REALbasic app related to Mini vMac;

Part of the REALBasic app work also entails digging up / documenting all compiler options for Mini vMac 3.4.1, which I need to assemble into a nice text document (as I did for version 3.5.8 ), and comparing the changes between that and the 3.5.8 document. For reference, there are 85 or so compiler options for version 3.5.8.

So, maybe I can add "Audacity 1.x -> 2.x" to the list, but I'm already very slow to complete any project, so maybe someone else more skilled / less unavailable can do it? Else I can try to get to it over time.

Are there some cool benefits to Audacity 2.x that no other audio player app has in Mac OS 9? That could definitely attract potential developers to look into it, especially if it's a very cool feature.

"The Pro Tools III (PCI or Nubus) will allow you to pass 24 bit audio through the digital inputs and outputs only. This does not require an 888/24, an original 888 will work for this. If the analog inputs/outputs are used the file bit depth will be 16 bit (actually up to 18 bit) but for arguments sake, 16 bit.

However, these systems will NOT write 24 bit files to disk. They will only write 16 bit files to disk.

This is a super convenient way to get a digital audio via spdif into a os9 environment

Hi.
Someone from Europe is willing to sell a PCI graphics card for my B&W G3 Tower?
Preferably with DVI. 3D acceleration is not important to me as this is used as software synth.
