I have been using  ELN's new ROM for a couple of weeks now, but I'm afraid to say that the mouse still freezes occasionally at a startup. It may now freeze less often, say one in ten instead of one in five. I must have now started up my mini 50 times or more, and definitely remember a few times of freeze.

regarding nato, that piece of artwork didnt really have "versions". it is one distribution and few later add-ons. and it requires OS9 and a PPC.

oh for sure, i was just throwing that out there as stuff im looking for (basically weird and early stuff that hasnt been archived yet).  i came into using a mac around the time the drama around nato was unfolding (at least i have dim memories of it) and have been unable to find it since then (probably wiped for legal reasons?)

who would have thought that... that v4 wasnt the first version. :)

Cycling 74 has a download page with this information posted. And yes they have the OS9 version too (4.1).

max had been around for 12 or 15 years by the time of 4.1 (which is a few centuries in computer music time) and passed from Ircam to Opcode to C74.  what i'm looking for is documentation for the earliest incarnations of max on mac (as well as stuff like the first version of MSP and nato) - mostly for archival purposes.

hey community,

got a problem here that I'm stuck on. I do want to use my Kyocera FS-1370DN printer for printing in OS9.2.2. It's a postscript-compatible printer. I can confirm the printer to work fine in OSX. The printer connects to my PowerMac G4 via USB.

I did pick the LaserWriter 8 (for postscript printing) in the Chooser. However, upon printing in e.g. Apple Works the finder reports the following error immediately:



So how do I make OS9 recognize that there is a printer listening? printer doesn't show up in the list postscript printers but I'm not sure if I need to search for it elsewhere first.

Anyone able to help me out? Thanks in advance!

might not work with all monitors and might not be centered 100%, but generally works for some people i know.

mb off topic, but

ive recently learned that there are actually adapters to hook up led flat screens to an atari - and that this will even work with executables which require a monchrome monitor.

eventually i go that route next year as i also still have a certain atari app which needs to be revived.

yes, "hi-res" most likely means monochrome. (cubase, notator, geerdes editors.. all wanted the later screens from STE times)

interesting enough, such apps usually still work under TOS emulators.

Alright, alright :)
I'm testing the MIDI In & Out in NoSTalgia,
KCS seems to freeze up every once in a while (this iBook had/has the bad GPU problem so it might not be up for the task, but it is a model from a very specific window in time; it's a G3, it boots OS 9 natively, it has FireWire and USB plus it's a 12" = pretty neat! -too bad about the GPU problem though. My coworker is waiting for a hot-air station, I'm gonna try and heat up the joints and see if it'll work better...)

Anyways, I've managed to get this far (OMS is available in this NoSTalgia version) but I'm not getting any MIDI Out (might be KCS Omega II) -but then again I've only spent a small amount of time with the HDD finally working. I am getting MIDI In from the interface into NoSTalgia into KCS...
I'm getting MIDI Out from OMS inside OS 9...

I'll report back in if it's worth the hassle (I think actually getting a 1040ST or something that runs KCS natively might be best hehe)
