Spoiled Apples

HyperCard under Windows

An application, programmed in HyperCard
and using XCMD and XFCN resources themself programmed in C,
working fine on a SheepShaver virtual machine under Windows.

This is a long journey, started in 1991 when Reto Kromer began emulating Z80 and 6202 architectures on 860x0 architectures. Today the emulation of many 6502, 680x0 and PowerPC-based Apple computers on modern x86_64 architectures under Linux, macOS and Windows is a reality.

For the benefit of the future generations, the source code will become freely available, as soon as the biggest legal issues are resolved. To publish the ROM’s content and the BIOS firmware is indeed a problematic endeavour… We are working on a «fair use» solution, in order to make preservation of computer and media history possible. In the meantime the PDF of the current man page is publicly available, which contains additional information about the implementation.

Alpha Release

Our research partners can currently install and test an alpha release by running the following command in the Terminal:

brew install avpres/formulae/spoiledapples

The Homebrew formula has been successfully tested on x86_64 architectures running on the following operating systems:

  • Linux: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and 16.04.6 LTS, and Slackware 14.2
  • Macintosh: macOS 10.14.4 and 10.13.6
  • Windows 10: running Debian 9.8 or Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, or cross-compilation from Linux

Note

The example in the illustration is taken from Indice ragionato della rivista Quaderni grigionitaliani 1931–1998.
