    Retro68 Codelite setup

    I've been trying to setup Retro68 for quite a while on my Macbook. Initially, I was unable to compile the project, but after trying it enough times, I at least got far enough in the compilation process to have a working 68K toolchain. It was mentioned in some other posts, as well as in this blog post, that it is possible to setup Retro68 to work with the Codelite IDE. I have however not been able to setup Codelite in such a way as to have code completion and building from the IDE. I was hoping, that there is maybe someone in the community who can maybe write a tutorial or something on how to setup Codelite to use the Retro68 toolchain? I am sure a tutorial like this would be beneficial to all the aspiring retro-programmers among us Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! CM

    Compiling scientific software

    Hey guys, I have been a silent reader for some time and with a lot of reading here and sweaty hands while reparing hardware stuff (two transistors were gone and, well, SCSI2SD after I had tried everything I could find to rescue the old HDD) I finally managed to get my Classic II which I originally planned to use as a SoC enclosure back to life again! I'm excited to do some stuff with it. The SoC enclosure is still an idea but that's shelved for now. Now I am a mathematician by training and I love me some Python. I have already seen that I can use Python 1.5.2 on Mac OS 7.5.3 (which I currently have, 7.6 didn't seem to be worth it...). One thing that would be nice is to plot some things. That can be taxing on such a device but I'm interested in seeing how usable the whole device still can be. Now I know that matplotlib is much too heavy. There's a very basic library called turtle which I think interfaces with Tkinter on some very basic level. Considering the age and the focus on portability of the project, I thought I might have an actual chance to get gnuplot working. However, my experience with the system itself is limited and I couldn't really find people that had tried that before. I also couldn't find precompiled packages on macintoshrepository.org etc. So, two questions: Now in these modern times, we neglect the seemingly basic requirements that plotting seem to have. But can the Mac handle this? Is that feasible at all? I saw the other day that someone even managed to get a spotify client working so my hopes are really high on this one! If yes, do you guys know how? Looking forward for input!
  3. Hi all! Again, it's been a billion years or so since I've posted. Life is absolutely insane at the moment so I have virtually no time for anything I'm interested in. There's some games on my Performa that I had as a toddler, and for the life of me I cannot find them anywhere. They're pretty stupid games, but not remembering their names is really bothering me. So I was wondering if y'all had any suggestions on software that can list and/or recover files that have been deleted or lost due to reformatting the drive they're on. The drive has been reformatted several times since I last played those games so I'm not holding my breath on being able to find them, but at this point I'm feeling like that's my last hope. It'd also be interesting to see what else a recovery program would drag up, in the past I had plenty of files of my own but I've passed the Performa on to my kids (though I reserved the right to use it from time to time) so most of my stuff is gone. The games I lost are an I Dream of Jeannie coloring and dress up game, a princess coloring and makeup game, and a really weird one where there's a bull in front of you and you have to feed him random stuff by dragging it to him. He would say "For me?" and then gobble the thing up with a rude and funny noise. Again, I'm not holding my breath, but if anybody has any idea about the names of those games or any other identifying information I'd appreciate it. Thank you all! I've really missed coming on here, hopefully someday things will calm down so I can be a regular again.

    G3 to SE/30

    Hi: I'm looking at the best way to download legacy Mac software from the Internet to use on my Compact Mac (eg SE/30, CC etc..). In the past, I used my old WinXP computer and it was tedious, but it worked. Now that I have Win10, it does not work any longer. So, what is best way to do this ? I'm thinking of perhaps buying a PowerPC G3, with Zip drive (I have an external SCSI Zip that I can use on the SE/30). Would the software downloaded by it be compatible with compact Macs ? What OS should be used on the G3 that would be Internet-friendly, as well as compatible ? I read that a dual boot (9.x and 10.x) was necessary. Is this true ? Thanks in advance.
