Nox Archaist released

10 January 2021 - 10:29 PM

8-bit Apple II-style RPG Nox Archaist has been shipped by those cool guys at 6502 Workshop.

System requirements are:

Apple IIe/IIc/IIgs (I popsnizzle you not)
128 K RAM
Color monitor
2 x 5.25" floppy drives

(It'll also run on macOS High Sierra + with the bundled IIe emulator)

Update: it also has two very cool, era-appropriate, fully authorised NPC guest stars, but I don't know how to use the spoiler tags on this board, so I'll leave them unspoiled for now.

Behold the magnificence...

Windows ARM64 virtualised on M1 Mac

27 November 2020 - 04:30 PM

Story courtesy of MacRumors - Alexander Graf has virtualised the ARM64 version of Windows (which can run x86 code) on an M1 Mac using QEMU. Money quote -
"Windows ARM64 can run x86 applications really well. It's not as fast as Rosetta 2, but close."

It belongs in a museum

So I rescued this from the IT dumpster at work today.

It feels like it has a battery, but no juice (obviously), so I'll try and find a power supply to hook it up to.

But holy crap it's heavy. I just carried it up the stairs and I need to sit down.

So this may be the most essential website you visit today.

MacOS 8 virtualised in an Electron app.

29 July 2020 - 09:33 AM

Felix Rieseberg has developed an Electron app that virtualises a Mac Quadra running Mac OS 8 (which was one of my favourite versions of the classic OS). It comes with a bunch of stuff installed, and apparently disk images can be dragged onto it. Enjoy, if you like that sort of thing.
