OSX help needed - where do I put the Software Archive folder?

Post by AVR2 » Fri Dec 02, 2016 11:58 am

Hi guys,

I've just discovered the Atom Software Archive and can't wait to get stuck into the nostalgia (I had an Atom from 1980-83), but I can't work out where to put the folder so it can be read by Atomulator on OSX.

I've been told that all the folders inside the archive zipfile need to go into a folder called "mmc", so I've done that, but where does that folder then go? I've tried Application Support and I've also opened the Atomulator package file and put it inside the Resources folder, but when I hit shift-break I get the "file not found" error.

TIA!

Hi there again,

Nice to see you on stardot!

Try here:
/Users/<your user name>/Documents/Atomulator/mmc

If this doesn't work, maybe Roland will answer, as he uses OSX.
