Re: DOSBox-X branch

As I've been banging heads with Jmarsh against the ARM64 code, there is also a big problem with Apple's tightened security on the M1. While the compiled binary will work nicely on your own machine, an actual app bundle needs entitlements and codesigning with a developer account to make it work on …

Re: Apple's T2: Vulnerable and Unfixable

That this vulnerability makes the whole mac less secure than if the chip didn't exist, just adds insult to injury. My concern with this kind of system design is that it ends up crippling the end user's control instead of improving security. Yes, definitely a big concern ever since the TPM chip ;(

First I apologized to the op for missing the link, and my critique of a missing link was at least meant to be tongue in cheek, playful. Second, I may be a moderator but that doesn't mean I don't have the right to criticize anyone. I'm a member first with the right to speak my mind and THEN I am a …

Re: What are the *unmissable* MT-32 experiences?

Ultima Underworld is one of my go-to games for showing the MT-32 off, even though it doesn't use any custom patches. The difference between OPL and MT-32 is like night and day. Ultima Underworld is one of the rare cases that is even better with a CM32 (or CM64) as it makes use of some water sfx …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

in Milliways
well, you attach the floppy drive to the kryoflux and the kryoflux via USB to the computer, so it is already some kind of floppy drive 😀 Looking at it like this I have a dual floppy drive for 3.5" and 5.25" floppies 😀
