Subject: [*] BOOM 1.3 (final release)

What is BOOM?
BOOM is an arcade game in the grand tradition, bringing the
playability and feel of the glorious 8-bit consoles on the
Macintosh. It can be described as "Bomberman meets Doom".
Actually, I took the basic Bomberman idea and dropped it in a
"Super-Deformed Doom" scenario (whatever this means).
As a space marine your mission is to penetrate 8 alien infested
areas, each one divided in 10 sub-zones, eliminate all enemies
using your bombs and finally kick the Big Alien Boss back to
where he came from.

System Requirements
PowerPC processor.
Mac OS 8.6 or later.
640x480 or larger monitor supporting 256 colors.
For Mac OS 8.6 and 9.x only:
9 MBytes free memory.
CarbonLib 1.1 or later.
Sound Manager 3.0 or later.

Recommended Configuration
For Mac OS 8.6 and 9.x only:
InputSprocket 1.1 or later (not supported under Mac OS X).
QuickTime¼ 4 or later with 'QuickTime Authoring' component installed.

What's new in BOOM 1.3?
* A few small bug fixes and code adjustments.
* Updated the documentation as usual.

Distribution
BOOM is 15$ shareware.
You can distribute BOOM freely, provided that you leave the software and
the accompanying documentation unchanged. You can include BOOM in CD-ROMs
and other software collections only by previous agreement.

| | Calculator 1.0 Abstract | |
+===================================================================+
|_Version_| 1.0 for HyperCard 2.4 or later |
|_Creator_| Scott Garrett |
|__CInfo__| This is a very simple calculator program I wrote with |
| HyperCard 2.4b16. It is mouse-controlled and I also added a |
| feature that will allow you to remember a number for later use. |
| Since this version is my first, it has some bugs in it. |
| Here are ones that I know of right now: |
+{ Bugs } +
| Calculator canát calculate problems that contain multiple signs. |
| (In other words, it canát, yet, figure out what 12x12-3+14ò2 is.) |
| The workarond to this is to do the first part (like 12x12) then |
| press the ‘=Ö button. Then you would start doing somthing like |
| this: 144-3 {equals} 141+14 {equals} 155ò2 {equals} 77.5. 77.5 |
| would be your answer. (If you donát get this, ask me to send you |
| an GIF animation of me doing this.) |
|...................................................................|
| The data field does not clear after you have done a calculation |
| and pressed the ‘=Ö button. Instead it adds on to the answer. |
| This may be good or bad, so Iám taking a servey on this: If you |
| think I should keep this ‘featureÖ, email me with ‘Calculator = |
| YesÖ in the subject. Otherwise email me with ‘Calculator = NoÖ in |
| the subject. :) |
++
| Well, anyway, if you have any questions, other bugs, or |
| comments about the Calculator, email me at [email protected] |
| Then, while I come out with another version of it, I will try to |
| remove as many bugs as possible (excpet for the Equals button |
| thing -- that depends on your votes.) :) |

Subject: [*] DockDisks

DockDisks is a hack that causes disks to auto-mount in the Dock. This
can be handy if you want to put your dock on the right side of the
screen but want to avoid the conflict for space with the disk icons on
the desktop. It can also help avoid the problem of desktop icons
becoming covered up by open windows.

DockDisks is a hack, and as such it is obviously not perfect. The main
caveat is that the Dock is quit and relaunched when the list of disks is
refreshed, because the Dock has no API for adding/removing items, and
thus has to be relaunched to refresh its settings. However, DockDisks
does do its job, which is to put your disks in the dock.

Current features:

- Preference pane interface
- Can be set to automatically launch at login
- Automatically mounts disks when they are inserted
- Automatically unmounts disks when they are ejected
- Automatically ejects removable disks and servers when they are
dragged off of the dock
- Allows the user to choose whether to display fixed disks, removable
disks, servers, or any combination thereof in the dock.
- Allows the user to choose the area of the dock in which the disks
will appear

Subject: [*] Icon Machine 3.0b19J - Japanese version


This is the Japanese version of the Icon Machine package.

Icon Machine is a Macintosh icon editor designed to take advantage of
the great features of the Mac OS to give you the power to make the icons
you want.

Now updated and redesigned for editing all icon sizes from 16x12 Mini to
Mac OS X's 128x128 Thumbnail, and Carbonized for Mac OS X, Icon Machine
is a great tool for creating icons for applications, customized folders,
eye-catching documents, and everything else.

"The Photoshop of icon editors!"
- Andrew Miller

"Icon Machine has a way of making a little square of 1024 pixels feel
like an expansive painter's canvas."
- Eric Prentice, MacTips

Changes in version 3.0b19

- Fixed a bug where saving an icon onto a file that had no resource fork
would change the file type and replace the data fork's contents
- Fixed a crash that happened in Mac OS 8 and 9 when displaying certain
error dialogs, such as when an incorrect registration code was entered
- The Apply Icon command now works properly with multiple selections
- Implemented a new method for putting images on the clipboard, to avoid
QuickTime bugs that were causing incorrect masking
- In OS X, clicking the close box of an inactive editing window will
close the window instead of bringing it to the front
- The Fix Image and Fix Mask commands are no longer in the editing
window's contextual menu, because they're seldom used and the menu was
too long
- Fixed an assertion dialog that would appear sometimes when editing a
32-bit icon
- Fixed alignment of the background pattern in 2x and 6x magnification
- Added available memory checks before attempting to open an editing
window

Keyboard Maestro Description
----------------------------

For anybody who works on their Mac, Keyboard Maestro is an essential utility
that allows you to perform many different tasks simply by pressing a few
keys. Keyboard Maestro enables you to spend more time working and less time
mousing, clicking, and typing to get your work done. Keyboard Maestro has
three core features built into it that make working on the Mac much simpler:
Hot Keys, Program Switcher, and Clipboard Switcher.

The Hot Key feature enables you to perform any number of user configurable
actions simply by pressing a keystroke. Hot Key actions include quitting,
hiding, or activating applications, inserting text, executing an Apple
Script or a UNIX script, opening files or folders, moving and clicking the
mouse, and much more. All hot keys can optionally be targeted to specific
applications, allowing the hot key to be active only when you find it
useful. Furthermore, any hot key can contain more than one action, enabling
you to create macros for any application.

Keyboard Maestro incorporates the wildly popular Classic MacOS application
switching utility, Program Switcher. In fact, Keyboard Maestro was written
by the author of Program Switcher. With the Program Switcher feature, you
are able to launch, switch, hide, and quit applications with a simple
keystroke. Keyboard Maestro brings to MacOS X what Classic Mac users have
been enjoying since 1994 - the most refined application switching utility
there is!

Keyboard Maestro also has the extremely useful clipboard utility, Clipboard
Switcher, built in. Clipboard Switcher allows you to define any number of
clipboards which you can use to Øcopy toÛ and Øpaste fromÛ simply by
pressing a keystroke. Clipboards are automatically saved through system
restart, user logout, and are always available when you need them.

What's New In This Release
--------------------------

- Improved compatibility with Mac OS X 10.2
- Fixed application targeting bug that manifested when multiple copies of
a targeted application was on the hard drive
- Fixed a bug which prevented the 'A' key from being the value for a "Type
Keystroke" action
- Hot key editor will now create an appropriate action for the type of
file dragged onto it from the Finder

Actually, the link is
.
XPostFacto is the mod to make OS X work on pre Beige G3 (Old World)
Macs. This link is buried in the discussion on XPF.

The XLR8YourMac site page has some warnings to be considered when
trying to install 9.2.x on unsupported Macs. But, the bottom line is
"if it ain't broken, don't fix it!" YMMV.

I'm still running 9.1 on my older Macs when I run OS 9 standalone.
Everything works fine. But, most of the time, I'm running 10.1.5 on
my 8600 with a Powerlogix G4/450 using XPF.

Loath as I am to junk some expensive peripherals, I need a Firewire-Scsi hub. Such a thing appears to be rather expensive, and I really don't know where to turn. Any recommendations for or against much appreciated!

You want REALBasic.

Subject: Avi on Mac

I did many experimentations with .AVI from the PC world on Mac System 9.1.
You need some plug-ins from Intel which are now placed DIRECTLY in the
System. You get them now with Quicktime. I have the PRO version and if you
select the options, you will see the one for playing .AVI.

Indeo½ Video
Indeo½ Video 4
Indeo½ Video5

Previously, I downloaded the plug-ins from the Intel site, after some
searching.

You need many plug-ins because there are many types of .AVI, depending of
the age of the .AVI you want to play.

With this new Quicktime setup, you should be able to play most .AVI; but not
all as I have seen recently.
