Mac CPU Upgrades / Re: MDD 866 Mods
« Last post by Protools5LEGuy on September 18, 2020, 11:49:08 AM »
Last sunday I went 30 Km away from my city to pick a broken MDD. It was a Uni 1.25 GHz MDD with SAMSUNG PSU (broken I guess) and a Radeon 9000 and a Sonnet Allegro FW400 ( probably with onboard broken firewire ).

I went to everymac and compared geekbench 2 results of 867 Dual Vs Uni 1.25 and were the same! For Mac OS X there is no advantage one machine vs the other. But on Mac OS 9 M.A.R.L. and other cultist would choose the 1.25.

So I decided to put the 166 and 1.25 on the 867 dual box that has a working AcBel PSU.

Notice the colour greener on 133 and bluer on 166
Photo/Image/Graphics Viewing & Editing / Re: Photo Editing with Live Picture 2.6.2

I very vaguely recall that ages ago, I was able to get Live Picture 2.6.2 up and running, but it didn't do anything. I could not open/import/view anything with it. I never understood what it was suppposed to do.

I also seem to remember that the program that was able to convert between various font formats was called "FontMonger"

I'm attaching what I found, and be interested in knowing if it worked for anybody.

i keep getting error -32 when trying to launch the version 2.6.2 updater, but the 2.6.1 updater works fine, thanks. If anybody is looking for a serial code message me  ;) really wonderful photo editing and vector design application, I highly recommend.

slightly unrelated but is anyone familiar with using custom .otf & .ttf fonts in os9? I have searched for any info on converting those formats to suitcases but couldn't come up with anything. I've read that those formats should be compatible but whenever I drag into the font folder they are still unreadable. I will download fontdoctor and see if it can diagnose for missing postscripts or bitmaps, but they seem to work fine in osx fontbook so I doubt that's the issue.

I am interested Motu Unisyn 2.1.0 installer CD Image
How can I get the image file?

Browsers, FTP, & Remote Control / Wake On LAN app?

Does there exist a WOL application for OS9? Or an app that has that feature in it? Sometimes my NAS is turned off and Id like to wake it remotely.
Community Marketplace / [FREE] MacOS X release boxes (10.1 to 10.4) and few game boxes

Hi everybody,

While doing some cleaning in my things, I came across some boxes of MacOS X and a few mac games. There is no content nor the cardboard reinforcement (and all but one are not in English).

But I am posting it here in case someone would like to add that to their collection of memorabilia (you just pay shipping from 02453).

If nobody is interested, they will reincarnate into something else through recycling.
Browsers, FTP, & Remote Control / Classilla does not save any changes
« Last post by PowerMac-User on September 16, 2020, 04:52:53 AM »
Hello all,

I have a problem since I installed classilla on my Power Macintosh 9600/350 with Mac OS 9.2:

Classilla doesn't save changes.
For example, if I set up the Classilla E-Mail client and close Classilla after that, then open it again and want to check my e-mails - I have to do the whole setup again. The preferences, received/send messages, everything is gone... The same thing is for dialogue boxes,  ("Are you sure you want to go from an unencrypted to an encrypted page?" etc.) which I have to click every time I open the program again.
But for some reason it does save things like bookmarks or visited pages.
Did I do something wrong or does someone know how to fix it?
that is how apple called these updates, because they delivered the 1.5 and 1.33 mostly in the 1.4 and 1.25 packages. :)

the 1.5 also has 64 VRAM and a bluetooth 2
what kind of silent upgrades? Would be interested to know what you have changed.. thanks
I have the following system:
     Mac Mini G4:  1.5 GHz (with the silent upgrades)
     RAM:  1GB
     HD:  Original stock drive (I think 80GB, partitioned into two equal pieces). 

I loaded the v8 disk on to it with great success at the end of 2019.  Then loaded all my files from a Wallstreet that I had so that I could pass that PowerBook G3 to someone else.

Just this past weekend, I used RossDarker's .sit v9 updater file to update from v8 to v9.  I can now get 1920x1080@60Hz just fine with correct looking graphics over VGA (DVI/VGA adapter).  Not tried using the DVI yet.  Will do that and report back later.

Couple of questions:

(1)  I saw a recent post here of someone looking for the latest ROM version (?).  Is that taken care of when loading v9 either from the CD installation or from the .sit updater file?

(2)  I am not sure what "accelerated graphics" means.  I also do not know what the feature selections mean in the ATI drop down menu.  Is there information explaining the menu options within this topic?
