Re: Alpha Editor 6.5 for 68k/PPC

Hey Dirk,
Just curious why such a specific request? What about 6.5 do you need that isn't in previous or later versions?

Re: Time Machine Backup File Not Opening

Is there any particular error message you are seeing when you try to open any of the files? Can you share a screenshot or a screen recording please.

Re: location of preferences in shell filesystem - esp voiceover

Well for starters, it's not /Library (root folder) but rather ~/Library (your user folder)

So from terminal, type cd ~/Library/Preferences and in there you'll find com.apple.Accessibility.plist — is this not what you're looking for?

Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

Just to be clear, there is no such thing as a PowerPC MacBook. These would be PowerBooks. After re-reading the OP's post several times, it sounds like he's saying he installed 9.2.1 or 9.2.2, but specifically needs 9.2(.0) for some reason. I'm not sure this is going to be possible, but you can downl...

Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

It is not possible to dual boot any MacBook with Mac OS 9, this is only possible on earlier PowerBooks with PowerPC chips. Are you by chance using a PowerBook as opposed to a MacBook?

Re: mac pro to power 6 display long video?

ArraySync would do it, but it's a 32-bit app and will not run on macOS Catalina. I am working on a new 64-bit update, however I can only work on it in my spare time. I hope to have that out as soon as possible. I will be posting updates here and also on social media once we have the new version read...

Re: problems not working keyboard and mouse

There’s nothing in Mac OS that would cause that, so you’ve got a hardware problem going on somewhere. I’d suggest trying a different keyboard and mouse.

Re: problems not working keyboard and mouse

That's very unusual. Are these Apple brand keyboard and mouse, or a third party? When you say restarting gets it working again, do you mean you restart the keyboard and mouse or the computer?

Do you mean to say that iTunes on your PC says the ringtones are on your phone? Can you post screenshots of both iTunes and your Sounds -> Ringtones settings panel?

Re: Bootcamp alternative?

Already downloaded the Windows 10 ISO and used Bootcamp to make it bootable but failed. I wouldn’t say it failed — it’s working exactly as expected. BootCamp’s sole purpose is to partition your startup disk and install Windows natively on your Mac with proprietary Apple drivers to support Apple har...

Re: Bootcamp alternative?

If you're trying to create Windows installation media for another PC, you can download a Windows 10 ISO directly from Microsoft and simply burn it using your DVD burner (if you have one).

Boot Camp requires a Windows partition on your Mac to work.

Re: Bootcamp alternative?

And how much free space is currently available on your Mac's startup disk? This is probably a sign that your storage is too full to be efficiently used with Boot Camp, which must have its own partition for Windows and of course, install a completely copy of Windows 10 onto it.

Re: Bootcamp alternative?

There really isn't any alternative to Boot Camp, which directly boots your Mac into Winodws. What are the errors you receive?

If you prefer, you can use virtualization solutions like Parallels or VirtualBox, however they're very slow. You're better off just picking up an inexpensive PC IMHO.

Re: write caching

I couldn't say for sure, this is a very specific technical question that I think you might find the answer in Apple's private developer forums (but you need a dev account to access those).

Re: write caching

I believe it is when a user logs out (and/or power off). Typically one doesn't have to think much about this very obscure setting, especially with SSDs. Are you experience a particular problem you are trying to solve?

Re: cd rw the big floppy

I don't think this is possible. Macs haven't shipped wit optical drives in many years since the USB stick has become cheap and ubiquitous. I would recommend just buying a USB stick. You can get a 32gb on Amazon for $7.

Re: ArraySync de-activating every time I run it

I'm not sure why that would work before but, definitely the changing network configs is what was causing the issue. The good news is I am finally at long last writing ArraySync's replacement which addresses many issues, and will also not have this serial activation system anymore. I'm making up a li...
