Thanks Goochman for the pin...


Starwindz is a really nice guy, so get your suggestions in to here, don't forget he does the frontend, any emulation queries to the respected emulation authors.

I'm hoping that Altirra will be able to load cheat files from a command line, there's loads of cht files out there and I'll be happy to make more, so you easily add an option to run the game with cheats active IF it can be done.


Down to Phaeron if its built in already or he feels like adding it?

1.03a seems to work fine on Mac OS/Mavericks using the commercial wine-derivative called Crossover. Options to install Jet and MDAC are built-in to the Crossover application. Make a new "bottle", install Jet and MDAC, copy the unarchived folder somewhere and run it. Sound can sometimes get a bit stuttery on my early Mac mini but it runs just fine on my 12 month old iMac.

A quick question regarding the updates (1.03, 1.03a, 1.03b, etc.).


Are the updates incremental? i.e. Do I just download the 1.1GB 1.03 file, then apply 1.03b or do I need to apply 1.03a first?


Does 1.03b contain everything from the 1.03a update?


Is the 1.1GB file updated to the latest version as newer updates appear, or is the main file left at 1.03?


It would be really cool to have a "check for updates" button in the application at a future revision, which could then go off and download the incremental updates automatically.
