+bhall408 Posted May 22, 2021 Share Posted May 22, 2021 I struck gold last weekend and found a 3.5" floppy disk containing the sources for all the Atari ST projects I had done back in the day. Earlier in the month, I thought the disk had gone bad, as my newly acquired 1040ST wouldn't read it, but then I popped in in a Mac -- lo and behold, it was Mac formatted. I must have made it as a backup when I transitioned from working on the 1040ST to going to a Mac Plus. A few projects were missing the .RSC files, but I have the app binaries, so worst case I could re-create them. The big kahuna/find is the Atari ST version of BBS software I'd worked on in the 80s called Plexus (myself and the other auther have also been working on getting the 8-bit version to compile). All the other projects were various MIDI utilities I'd written for myself, as I was in a band at the time, and we used the ST in live performance. Coming back to today... I currently use a Mac as my desktop/development machine. I converted all my old Atari 8-bit projects to ca65 and cc65 and have been *really* happy with that method. While I could try and run Laser C under Hatari, if there is an equivalent to cc65 for ST/68K projects that will run command line on Mac OS, I'd prefer that. I've seen some references to the 80 easy steps to use GCC for Jaguar development. I'm hoping it doesn't come down to that. Or if so, maybe I will try running Laser C under Hatari. Thoughts?
