  1. @10001001sos can you remind me of your OS version and how much RAM you have? I'll then try testing from my end.
  2. I use Windows 10. Getting Networking alive in Basilisk II on Windows is a piece of cake. Unfortunately I know next to nothing about Linux sorry.

    Fun with colour on my SE/30

    I have a Colour Classic so yeah it would be possible for me to make a cast of the CRT. But I'm curious why you'd want to replace the Trinitron screen with a TFT? It will undoubtedly not look as good. The LCD I sourced for my SE/30 project was pretty good, but still nowhere near as good as the output on my Colour Classic CRT. Hypothetically if an OLED panel could be sourced, then that would be a worthwhile upgrade, but I don't think anything like that exists.

    Sure - PM me and we can sort something out.

    Fun with colour on my SE/30

    Hi all, thanks for your ongoing interest - however, I've decided not to continue with this project. As cool as it was to see a colour screen in an SE/30 - for me personally I feel the original B&W CRT is a big part of what makes these old machines so special. Staring at an LCD in a SE/30 just felt wrong, which is why I haven't been motivated to keep going with it. I also own a Mac Colour Classic - it's Trinitron CRT is wonderful and this machine was always made for colour.
  7. Thanks @Crutch and great work on releasing your screensaver. I'm using Retro68 which is a gcc cross compiler on my Windows 10 laptop. It's using C++ 11, which I believe the full library is over 10mb - so I think it's already only including the bits it needs. It just shows how software gets more bloated as the years go by! I've got some ideas on how to reduce the file size, but failing that I'll definitely look into Codewarrior.
  8. The simplest thing would be to rewrite it in C - that'd probably get it down to about 200k...
  9. That's the problem. The extension itself is over 2mb in size, and it's memory requirement is set to 4mb. On a SE/30 with 128mb of RAM that's of course not an issue, but I didn't realise the SE's maximum memory was so low! The reason the extension is so big is due to a combination of factors: It's written in C++. The C++ library is almost 1mb in size. I could rewrite it in C, but that's a big job and I'm not much of a C programmer. The extension relies on a number of other libraries. The biggest on is iconv at almost 1mb which is used to convert UTF-8 text to MacRoman - however this is only required if you plan to use the Spotify app I wrote. Attached is a version of MacWifi with a reduced memory requirement of 1.5mb. I've removed the iconv library from this build, but I've kept the logging code in for now. Give it a go, but unfortunately it's not going to leave you with much free RAM for other applications. MacWifi.APPL.sit
  10. How much RAM is in your SE?
  11. @Michael_b Attached is a version of the extension with some logging added. Before installing, please rename your primary disk to "Mac HD (68K)" (without the quotes). Solely because I was too lazy to write the code to find the primary drive... Then after rebooting, wait a few minutes and you should see wifi.txt in the root of Mac HD (68K). Please post the contents of this file. If there's no file we're really in trouble! MacWifi.APPL.sit
  12. eBay. This is the exact one I bought, but there might be cheaper sellers around: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GL-AR300M16-Ext-mini-router-300Mbps-WiFi-OpenWrt-Repeater-OpenVPN/223044703527
  13. @just.in.time thanks for the information. To make myself feel a little better, I've updated the Readme on the GitHub page with this information: https://github.com/antscode/MacWifi
  14. @Michael_b @10001001sos I finally had some spare time and I believe I've figured out the issue with System 7. The issue was not MacTCP as I originally thought, but simply that you need to install the Thread Manager extension. I had previously only tested the extension on System 7.5, which has Thread Manager included - but it's not included with earlier OSes. Here's the MacWifi extension running on System 7.1: I've updated the Readme on the MacWifi GitHub page to include information about Thread Manager: https://github.com/antscode/MacWifi
  15. @just.in.time sorry, if I had of known the packages were different I would have made this clear on my GitHub readme I also found this on the OpenWRT site: https://openwrt.org/unsupported/nand_flash Note the table at the bottom: It says must be forced into booting from NOR flash - but the link goes to an empty page! Perhaps there info elsewhere on the web that explains how to boot your device from the NOR flash. Then, I assume the standard system upgrade would work. Sorry
