I am still looking for as many TDM Plugins I can find. I have the DAE Gold folder and "The Goods" but would like to see what else is out there. If needed I have quite a few files from the old forum I could post as well.

An entire maxed out Pro Tools TDM setup. 10 interface cables, 4 Y Cables, 4x ADAT Bridge 24's with one 888/24 for a total of 72 I/O. Soon to have 8 Mix Cards and 2 Sample Cell Cards in my Expansion Chassis.

multiple files were corrupted and had to be replaced, and nobody ever noticed it - that is the truth about people downloading 25 years old music software from us. :)

yeah, today everything is web based.

but it is much easier to download files from ftp/hotline/firstclass/whatever compared to the usual download forums, websites or sharehosters.

for example you can now download images and burn them directly under windows, you can continue broken downloads, and you can also upload without hassle, which is the prerequisite for new contributions.

that might sound ignorant but i think that if someone does not get hotline or FTP to work he will also not need quark express preflight extensions, a surround mixing enviroment or a collab SATA driver in alpha version.

btw. can you refind the forum post with the generic SATA driver attachment? have fun searching. :)

[...] and you can be sure that those who do will also understand how to operate some form of ftp client even if it is new to them, so that cant be the reason.

I wouldn't be so sure of that... A lot of very IT-casual people would freak out at the sight of anything as "complex" like FTP that their browser (likely) no longer supports... Yet such people will want to resurrect their old Mac, or their father's Mac, or grandfather's Mac... And/or seek other software.

that shoud have been done 2 weeks ago but as it seems it was my fault that it didnt, it seems i never sent the text proposal to knez.^^

will do that later when i am on my mac.
 
 
the "hotline" category will be renamed to "downloads" because that word seems to magically attract people.

Perhaps the main issue is the ability of finding the link itself?

having active links for that kind of stuff is always cool and we will do that, but it does not solve the issue that newbies might not be able to use it the way it is intended.

those who do not know hotline and those who use windows to browse the net will most likely also not know how to add helper apps for alien protocols to their brower.

i did that in IE 5 mac times for various apps, but in a modern FF i do not even find where i could do that setting.

...

regarding the reason why people do not visit the new system... i actually think that there are not so many people who are looking for rare multimedia apps or system extensions (which would not also be on garden/repository) for a 25 years old system.

and you can be sure that those who do will also understand how to operate some form of ftp client even if it is new to them, so that cant be the reason. if oyu can operate photoshop or nuendo you will also be able to cliick an icon, enter an adress, and drag a file.

extending the library and prodiving better sharing options is a project inside a very, very small filterbubble.

during the last 8 years about 250,000 people were downloading files, about 8 or 9 were uploading files, and the majority of downloads is the macos9 images.
nobody ever noticed that we did not not have NI plug-ins for TDM or that there are only 3 drivers in the "drivers" section.

but who really expected it to be different. :)

Thank you for the guide aBc!

I was able to quickly secure a power supply that actually matches the specifications required for the interface. This solved my powering on issues, and I can now reliably use the MIDI features over FireWire!

However, it did not solve the issues with audio over FireWire. Frequent dropouts, sometimes no computer audio at all. Further research indicates bad caps are the likely culprit. A common problem with the Tascam FireWire interfaces it seems... It quite literally can’t warm up enough for the clock to run reliably. I guess this is why higher end Antelope stuff has literal ovens inside.

So, not ideal, but the ability to use it for MIDI was what I needed most, so I can’t complain. My FW-1804 lives to sequence another day.

No.
Example of garbled can be seen in attachment to this post:

Apologies, for some reason that hadn't registered with me. I have looked at the images, and it seems to me to be the same here. The horizontal lines all seem present for what I can see, it's an issue with the vertical ones. Maybe not every other vertical line, but sets of them.

What I've noticed now is that if I use two adapters (Mac Mini DVI > DVI/VGA Splitter > DVI/HDMI Converter) I get the garbled display. Just the converter, I get no display. Must be some part in that splitter then which the converter likes. I'll see if I can find some different adapters (passive and/or active) to test.

Most people on Mac OS 9 can simply [url = gopher://gopher.macos9lives.com/1/downloads]click on a hyperlink[/url] to browse and download the files transparently from their browsers. As you can see from my message just now, though, using forum BBCode doesn't work (it changes "gopher://" to "http://gopher//" if you try), instead of HTML:

Code: [Select]
<a href="gopher://gopher.macos9lives.com/1/downloads">Mac OS 9 Lives! Downloads Section</a>
But that is not a problem outside the forum pages, as gopher links work the same as http ones.

Perhaps the main issue is the ability of finding the link itself? And making it look clickable? And next to the link, a note between parenthesis to say "Classilla, Gophie or another Gopher browser required"? Like this:

Mac OS 9 Lives! Downloads Section (Classilla, Gophie or another Gopher browser required)

Maybe that can be put inside the http "Downloads" page we can go to from the menu on the left side, under "Forum Menu"?

What do you think, @aBc and @knez? Would that be good enough?
