  1. Just in case you want to look up some more MacTutor articles there's a CD with all the example code and every article in Think Reference format (pictures included!) https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/mactech-vol-1-12 Thanks for all your detailed posting. It's quite fun to follow along a new program being written.
  2. I can confirm it runs perfectly on a Classic II. Seems to get the same FPS that your SE/30 does. Also tested it on my LC475 and, after setting to B&W it runs great. Super cool project! Can you describe the file format you've developed?
  3. Very cool stuff! I will give this a try on my Classic II this weekend, curious how it will run vs the SE/30.
  4. HA! This is a great and mad project, well done. I can't really think of a use for me at the moment, but I'll bookmark it in case something comes up.
  5. The Classic and Classic II use the same right? I found this on page 18 of the Classic 1 dev note: https://cdn.preterhuman.net/texts/computing/apple_hardware_devnotes/Mac Classic.pdf Pin number Signal Signal Description 1 +12V +12 volts 2 +5V +5 volts 3 +5V +5 volts 4 /VSYNC Vertical synchronization 5 /HSYNC Horizontal synchronization 6 VIDOUT Video output 7 SND
  6. I can't find the assembler software around, but i was able to find some discussions and example code. The devnote for the Quadra AV has an overview https://cdn.preterhuman.net/texts/computing/apple_hardware_devnotes/Centris 660AV-Quadra 840AV.pdf There's some example code here https://macgui.com/downloads/?file_id=13576 And there's a minifaq here that talks about the software needed to program it http://ftp.vim.org/pub/ftp/ftp/infomac/info/hdwr/av-dsp-faq-101.txt Finally there are some old forum posts of people looking for software, you might try
  7. Oh that's great news! I will look for the issue on my board too. I haven't worked on my broken 180 much recently, excited to see if i have the same problem.
  8. I have a 180 that is doing the same thing. However, I don't think it's the screen that's bad. When i turn it on i get the screen with the horizontal lines, and no sound. If i press the reset button then the lines will change and i can also hear the hard drive spin up and seek. I tried powering it on and off for a while then just as i was about to give up I heard a loud BONG and the computer started up fine!! I started copying my cousins old files off it, but after about an hour it froze and went back to the screen with lines. My first suspicion was a power adapter not providing eno
  9. Macintosh Garden does! https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/mactech-vol-1-12 DissBits fade sounds a lot like the one the Wolfenstein 3D does when you get a game over. There's a nice write up about how it works with some simple sample code here https://fabiensanglard.net/fizzlefade/index.php
  10. I've been teaching myself Mac programming on a Classic II and in Mini vMac for the past few months and having a blast with it. Both THINK C and THINK Pascal are great and pretty easy to use. THINK Pascal's built in text and graphics windows make for very easy experimenting with QuickDraw and the like without having to learn how to initialize the toolbox and create windows. But it's also easy to turn your experiments into real applications once you start getting the hang of things For tutorials and reference, there's a great collection of scanned books at https://vintageapple.org/ma
  11. I am also interested in a board if there are any left unclaimed. Thanks!
