GoatTracker 2.75 MacOS 64bit

Hi!

I spent some time to update the GoatTracker 2.72_MacOS branch to compile for 64 bit binary which is required in the newest MacOS Catalina. I also upgraded sources to 2.75 version.

As I had to fix some deprecated functions and especially the main event loop, thus it would be good to test the binary if all events (keyboard, mouse, menus, ...) work as expected before proper release upgrade. It seems it is working, but I am not skilled at goat-tracking, thus I would appreciate it if someone can confirm that all is working well.

Here's a link to the v2.75-test1 64-bit MacOS binary:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FfH1kiOktSGE96s-hCgj6VyT_JBqx..

The binary is not notarized by Apple yet, so you'll get a warning that Apple can't check it, just right-click on the application and skip the check, although the app is signed by my developer's certificate.

Thanks in advance!

Has there been any updates to this since? Or does anyone know of any other version of GT (even older is fine), that works in Catalina? Unfortunately the keyboard mappings are a bit fudged (at least on MBP): As others have said, adding or deleting rows decreases the pattern number, until we're at pattern 00. Also inserting a pattern in the orderlist adds it to the first position, not to the cursor position, and at the same time this resets the loop marks to the first position as well.

I made a HUGE mistake of updating my SID-composing MBP from Yosemite to Catalina, not realising that the "official" v2.73 will stop working. :(

2.75-test3 is the one that works for me in Catalina. I'm also facepalming here after the upgrade.

The keymapping issues make it precarious to do any heavy lifting, it's so easy to make a mistake, especially since there's no Undo (at least none that I found).

My shortlist of bugs:

- Insert/delete pattern rows
- Insert order list (as Jojeli mentioned)
- Running fullscreen makes error sound with every keystroke


My feature wish list:

- Remember last working directory (I now have to type in my path every time)
- Some undo would be sweeeet
- Replace empty 00 00 values with -- -- for readability

Any news? =)

Mojave won't cut it for much longer.

Linus, at one point I literally thought that a junior SID genius will be making his/her first SID tune on here, but since I am a former Windows-turn Linux noob with zero Mac experience, I guess you were talking about your operating system. ;)

Oh well, it was just a wild guess.

I have it built and running on Big Sur if you wanna try that. Posted in the EOTB chat.

Apologies, I overlooked this topic completely :)

I am focused recently on Retro Debugger, which is going to be a totally revamped C64 Debugger (+Atari 8bit, +NES). As I am also creating plugins system I added Goat Tracker v2.75 sometime ago as a plugin for testing and it seems it's working. I totally removed underlying GT2's SDL code and replaced by Retro Debugger, SDL2 and ImGui APIs.

If someone is willing to test this very early unstable alpha, please PM me. I have builds for macOS and Windows, Linux is still in progress... this is not released yet, hoping to have most important features done by around end of this year.

Note, I've included GoatTracker as a plugin in Retro Debugger. This works also on macOS.
