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!

After some testing I have added a fix for a bug in v2.75 that when config was written previously by v2.73 the app would not start after migration due to a bad window parameter:

The problem is described here in comments: GoatTracker V2.75

I also added an option in the config file to select your own path to player.s assembly code.

Excellent! Btw. you could apply general fixes like that also to trunk branch directly, as they benefit the whole project.

I tried to compose something in GT 2.75 on MacOS 10.14.6 and the editor messes up badly when I reduce the amount of pattern steps within the pattern editor. It randomly cuts or extends pattern lengths when I just open an .sng file and hit F1 to play it, too.

Is it meant to work on 10.15.x _only_ (can't update my production machines at this point as several third-party AU plugins I rely on won't work anymore) or did nobody else test it, just yet? =)

Adding anything to track 2 or 3 seems to add the same thing to both.

These are interesting problems, I will have to check the diff patch maybe something was omitted, thanks for spotting:)

Good stuff, been enjoying it for a while now.

Same problem here with adding or removing rows to patterns - every time I remove a row, the pattern reverts to the previous numbered pattern and so on - until you reach pattern 0, which has no problems adding or removing rows.

Also, running ./Goattracker.app --args -X1 runs it full screen, but every keystroke gives the MacOS error "bump" sound.

Also 2: clicking the GT2 app icon will run it in full screen again, unless I do ./Goattracker.app --args X0 again. I now have to do this all the time to run it windowed.

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
