FYI for Stardot readers, all of these are being discussed in various issue reports in the GitHub tracker. The original author of the macOS patches has returned and is helping :) I've added links below.
THANK YOU! :D

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Yes, what's happened to this thread? Are you there, VincentVega? Why's everything gone so quiet, and how come the links are down?

I'm finding RPCEmu 0.9.0 on the Mac extremely useful, but there's a least one major bug in HostFS that wasn't there in the previous version, and a fix would be lovely…

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

If anyone else has views on my use of "Application Support", then please let me know - if the prevailing view is that people would rather me use something else, then I'll change the patch. The Windows/Linux versions of RPCEmu will load the support files from the same directory as the executable. On...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

I'd like to report an important problem. It's a trivial but actually very important thing: I can no longer put spaces in filenames. Regardless of what you may think to this, I've always been a pretty heavy user of Alt-Space to put hard spaces in filenames. Especially in a long filenames context, it'...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Cue thinking out loud/flight of fantasy mode: it sounds like you'd like to be able to have different profiles for different versions of RISC OS and be able to define and switch between them from the UI, and maybe have an option to display a dialogue at start-up that lets you choose what profile to ...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Here's a sneak preview of an additional patch I've been working on Looking good! Thanks for all your efforts; it's really great to see RPCEmu advancing on the Mac again. What would be really nice is if the HostFS filer menu in the RISC OS Desktop had an "Open host folder" (or some such) item that w...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

There's something I'd like to mention, just as general information about all versions of RPCEmu running on the Mac, which is particularly useful to know given the current lack of support for networking. As Mac users are aware, the Mac supports alias files – as described in some messages earlier in t...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Thanks very much for patch 3. It's GREAT to finally have the emulator suppress those irritating /DS_Store files — that's a surprisingly helpful improvement in its own right! Regarding the mouse lag that I'm experiencing, I've limited time to really investigate this in detail right now, but I'll cert...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Thanks so much for the update and extra info. Mac users haven't been troubled with the difference between Recompiler and Interpreter versions of RPCEmu in the past, so quite honestly I'd forgotten that there was the choice. (I wonder why the much slower one is the default, given that I've never expe...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Just as a quick follow-up to my previous message… I gave timings for a real-world task (redraw of an ArtWorks file), but I forgot to quote the relative timings from the software itself. So, just to give an idea of the relative difference, when I've got RPCEmu just sitting with its window open and th...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

I've just built version 0.9.0 on my Retina iMac — THANKS for the instructions and patch, which are MUCH appreciated. I've been very much looking forward to seeing 0.9.0 on the Mac, because having continued use of RPCEmu is important to me, so I was concerned about upgrading beyond Sierra. Now that t...
