For the people who want to try the WP43S on the Mac:

Hi hoverbeek,

Did you try this on a clean Mac?

Many months ago I tried the executable, and it didn't work due to dynamic linking that requires you to install the complete dev system any way, in which case you can compile it. I have been wanting to do a static link, and tried it once, but there are so many dependent packages underneath which also are dynamically linked, that that doesn't work. I also tried to WineBottle the doze executable, but that also needs you to set up GTK on Wine, which is also not trivial, so I gave up on that too.

I cannot test, because I cannot undo my dev system from the Mac, i.e. don't have a clean Mac, and I suppose for the same reason you cannot test it either

Any testers who can confirm if the executable works nowadays?

I test the app on my development Mac, so I don't have a clean Mac either.

The app needs GTK. I have not tested it, but this could be the runtime version of GTK:
https://www.gtk.org/docs/installations/macos/

If this runtime works I will put that in a document on how to run the emulator on the Mac.

Anybody willing to test this?

Alpha functions are implemented and running AFAICS. Thanks, Martin!

For everybody wanting to test the new features on the simulator, I've built and uploaded a new wp43S.exe. You find it here, as usual: https://gitlab.com/Over_score/wp43s/-/t ... 20binaries

Enjoy!

### Re: 43S News

I am running linux mint so I tried to install in windows 7 64 bit in a VM.
Followed the instructions, installed GTK-3 from the link and all the files as instructed.
When running I receive an error that the program is not compatible with my windows version.
Does it need windows 10 or is there another problem ?.

It is working for me on real hardware and 64-bit Windows 7, so I believe there is another problem.

Ok thanks maybe it has to do with settings in he VM, all other emulators such as V41 work well.

Why trying to use Windows in a VM? It's a lot easier to run it with Linux!
You have to install the standard development tools, git, gtk+ 3 dev, and libgmp dev packages.
Then, the first time, simply run:

Code: Select all

git clone https://gitlab.com/Over_score/wp43s.git
cd wp43s
make
./wp43s
After that, to update and rebuild the program:

Code: Select all

cd wp43s
git pull
make rebuild
./wp43s

Thanks, I imagined it was windows only, I actually only use windows when there is no alternative

It runs under Linux, Windows, and Mac OS (but don't ask me about the latter).

I dual boot Manjaro and Windows. Whenever I use windows, I just have this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that my computer is recording everything I do and sending it off to advertisers and/or the highest bidder.

In Linux, I don't feel like I'm constantly being spied on and I feel secure even if I go to dodgy websites since most viruses are made for Windows.

I hope Linus Torvalds doesn't give in to the big companies, but some of his actions recently make me worried for the future of Linux. But for now, Linux is still the best option.

Worst case scenario, we can move over too TempleOS ! (Kidding ofc).
