Using Nostalgia on Mojave, so bad it doesn't work. Placing it here as attachment.

when i saw that name i suspected a file broken from a formerly broken harddrive, becaue that is how such files look.

but it is obviously the trademark symbol which didnt went through and has something to do with either you or the hotline server.

i "simplify" all names and versionnumbers the way i do because i think that trademark symbols and other werd stuff is not very friendly to the eyes - and to save characters where possible bc of classic MacOS.

as it seems there are more reasons.  :o
 
 
will replace 260 with 262 later.

btw. does v200 have any relevance? we shall only list relevant releases.

I agree; on the historical side, we must obtain all the versions we can.

"all" will definetly not happen, not even for major applications. :)

but 2.6, 3, and 4 are literally different programs with different options, just like soundmaker 1&2,  orange vocoder 1.5 and 2, quark 4 and quark 5, you name it.

Just make sure that no software version is further lost by backing up anything "not relevant" in the Macintosh Garden first. Then Mac OS 9 Lives can focus on "the top stuff".

No, there's a functional reason for it: check out this Garden thread about someone asking what's the point of archiving all versions of a given software, and see my specific reply to it there.

In short, we must never underestimate the utility of older software. Sometimes it's discovered 20+ years later that an older version we thought was "useless" or "obsolete" or "irrelevant" had something of value that no one knew about, such as the case with Disk Copy 6.3.1 and earlier (as opposed to the wildly more popular Disk Copy 6.5b13 and 6.3.3).

This is just one example. As a matter of principle, we archive everything.

Also, no, that doesn't mean you "need to sort, test and upload 100,000s of files". Well, except for the "upload" bit, of course: rather than making 100,000 pages, and doing 100,000 tests, you can simply dump it all in one place and deem it done. Worst case scenario, you make it a single file and dump it all. Like this ginormous page I created here (of someone else's vast archive). From there, other people can "dismantle" the download, test things and make individual pages, as is often the case with magazine CDs and whatnot.

Rather than testing anything directly yourself, you can simply see if the MD5 checksum of the single file you made matches the MD5 checksum that is automatically generated by the Garden. Then you will know it is good (else we reupload, but this is usually not needed). You can use the crazy-fast, ultra-new md5classic app (version 1.0b4) to check it directly from Mac OS 9.2.2 (or even from System 1, or Mac OS X 10.4.11) even, although if the file is bigger than 2 GB, another program from another OS will be needed (although I wouldn't be surprised if md5classic gets updated for large file support sometime soon), such as HashMyFiles on Windows or WINE.

I think it might be the ™ character that messes up something. Need to look into other Hotline client options for Intel Macs. Thanks for informing :)

I can't get Nostalgia to work on Catalina either. It loads and runs but never makes a connection.

You did this megapost? Youre a hero to retro audio. Without this post a lot of K’s would have been lost.

Iio, im sure you have got a vast archive and im sure from your point of view we are youngsters/unexperienced imbicels but every contribution counts, if there were 100000 daily posts in this retro
World sure we would need to have harsh rules but at this point every share is welcome

This isnt exactly racing 0day in the year 2000
