Re: GUI Problems On OSX 10.5.8

The UI requires at least Java 1.6 update 10. Can you open a terminal, and type: java -version By the looks of that error, you probably somehow have an older one activated. Perhaps Java 5, if you have all the updates, since Apple installs all the last major versions, and then stick their own version ...

Re: GUI key

Just to add to Mr. Vince's reply.

Having more in-depth information about track issues when not green is a planned feature, though I can't promise when we will get to it.

As to renaming presets, you should be able to do that already. Just select it, and change the name in the right panel.

KryoFlux Track Data Visualisation

Over the last few months, aside from the work on writing support for KryoFlux, we have been working on providing more insight into disk data by means of data visualisation, since this is often helpful in identifying the cause of errors and provides useful information about the disk encoding. Since t...

Re: IPF and Openness

I know what you mean, but I personally quite like the idea of an emulator telling you the origin of an IPF and you knowing by the signature being validated. When it comes to preservation, being able to securely verify the origin I think it is quite a compelling feature. But anyway, we already decide...

Re: IPF and Openness

I'm not sure I understand quite what you mean. The hard coded hashes in the library would only be for the current set of IPF files that do not have a signature The library call to verify origin would check against that list if no signature was present in the IPF itself (and so transparent to library...

Re: IPF and Openness

The hashes would indicate it was from us, that is all. I can't see why people would want to edit them, and it saves having a file having to be placed somewhere. The only other way is to re-issue all the current IPF's... but that would be annoying for everyone, not least that there are 3600 of them. ...

Re: IPF and Openness

It's 12:30am here, so I will be quick: Thanks for all the extra info on GPL balrog. I'll look over that more deeply tomorrow. I wouldn't say JNA is lousy... JNI is certainly lousy, but I think JNA, as a technology, is very cool. I use it at work to call into legacy apps. Having to call native stuff ...

Re: IPF and Openness

Balrog: Thanks for the heads up on that, especially the GPL3. That is certainly something to look into. We have a lot to think about, both for the near and longer term. This is all a bit new for us as a group, and this discussion has been very useful. Let that not be a sign of it ending though!

Re: IPF and Openness

phi2x: I don't think there is much stopping a Java emulator from using the current library, made easier using JNA. I guess C# and Delphi would have alternative mechanisms. Of course, it is far from ideal. Apart from what IFW said, something hasn't been said enough in this thread: What we are talking...
