Re: Bad timing

You could run macOS inside Virtualbox, but that doesn't help if all you have is an iPad Pro. Failing that, this appears to be a way to rent a Mac Mini. I hear you can screen share to it with an iPad Pro... See https://www.macstadium.com/mac-mini/ and https://tyler.io/coding-on-my-ipad-pro/ And it lo...

Re: The Secret History of Mac Gaming

Looks like it is a display resolution problem, perhaps not using one my Mac supports. Figured I can run it in windowed mode fine like this (through Terminal) Marathon.app/Contents/MacOS/Marathon --windowed Then I can set a different resolution, and I can use command-enter to fullscreen it. No problem!

Update: So, the good news is that we’ve heard from Joe. He’ll be making an announcement soon (or in Delta Tao-ese, “soon”). We’ve also in talks with some skilled people who are willing to undertake the account portal project. We’ll provide more information as news develops.
Yay!

The Secret History of Mac Gaming

The v1042 discussion reminded me I preordered/backed this book about the history of mac games which some may be interested in.
Joe features in it I believe.

Check it out:

Re: v1042 discussion

People play for different reasons, we don't need to get personal over this. The notional game referred to as 'CL2' is entirely possible, and can happen without any impact on CL at all. So perhaps we can leave that as a different discussion, as this is about the future (or lack of) of CL as it is now.

Re: v1042 discussion

+1 for what Lori, Geo, Killian, Hoggle said. I also agree with Mac, except that I disagree with Mac's comment on fighters - Even after all this time, my main still sucks and I still can't do anything I want :lol:

Re: v1042 discussion

Hi Guys, I want to put an offer on the table to preserve this very important piece of history for me. Before the offer, I want to first explain why: ... said some stuff.... I can relate to your feelings of the early days of Clan Lord. I was probably around the same age, and I really enjoyed those e...

Re: v1042 discussion

I don't know. Also there is the requirement for it to be multiplatform, and I don't know what Maz used. Perhaps mac only? I think we need to wait to see what Joe's response is, if any. He may or may not be Keen for any of this. If anyone wanted to see the web client proof of concept in action here a...

The best actual platform for CL is probably the Switch except it's owned by Nintendo which til last year has been rather closed to the spirit that made CL. By the way Osito provide me with my password but now I have the hurdle of the macros.
The switch is awesome

Re: v1042 discussion

If anyone wanted to see the web client proof of concept in action here are a couple of gifs. The gifs might be a bit slow to load at first. Also there's some obvious things missing, like character shadows, among many other things. Normal viewport - down in the myrm caves: https://giphy.com/gifs/xT0x...
