Hatari on OSX PPC?

I was not able to get 2.2.1 to run on my G4 1.2ghz laptop.

What is the last binary that does? Would assume this machine would be able to run it pretty well.

It appears that 1.7 is the last version with a PPC binary. There were no longer Mac users with an Xcode old enough to build for PPC. In addition, the default SDL supported is 2.x which only supports Intel Macs.

As the emulation has improved, the system requirements have increased. Therefore, you might not be happy with the performance of 2.2.1 on a PPC Mac if you have an Xcode old enough to do the compile.

Was just a thought Bob, I really love this laptop .. I am using it right now to login. I think the keyboard is one of the best ever made and its small clean and works really well.. and what can I say.. I love my retro computers. I just thought it might be cool to run on this to try it .. My only Intel mac is a Hackintosh.. which most likely will run it.. but since it is not portable.. I could then just run it on my PC and be done with it.

Thanks for the response.. SO all I need to do is find an Xcode that works with PPC and I could compile it huh? that might be a fun search.

If you compiled 1.8 or 1.9, it might work with a simple compile if you have a copy of SDL 1.x for PPC. At this point, there may be code changes that are not compatible with PPC.

If you do get a later version compiled for PPC, there may still be other Mac PPC who would be interested in it.

There is many people that only Mac they had is PPC Mac. And they like them.

Some hints how to make for OSX 10.5 PPC (and even OSX 10.4 PPC) even with with OSX 10.6 Intel:

You find Xcode from every OSX installation DVDs and even OSX 10.2-10.3 installation CDs.

How to make PPC support for Intel Xcode 4:

Some official hints for compiling:

And please if make new PPC version, make it for OSX 10.4 (Tiger), because most of PPC people like it more than OSX 10.5 (Leopard).

Btw, there're a MorphOS version of HATARI 2.1.0 and MorphOS runs in an Apple PowerPC machine.
