Re: [hatari-devel] Issue with macOS version of Hatari 2.2

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


Based on your comments, it does sound like it is more complicated than simply a Retina-based problem with SDL 2.0.7. 

Unfortunately, I don’t have a dynamic library for SDL 2.0.9 so I couldn’t do a simple replacement to the released binary. I only have the SDL framework. 

Please let me know if there’s any way I can help.

Thanks Bob,

What happened yesterday is that I saw this on my main Macbook Pro (Retina, 2012, Mojave). I then verified that the same issue existed on previous nightly builds - but I have had no feedback that there's an issue with them..

Today I tested it on my brand new 2018 work-Macbook Pro (Retina, Mojave) that had never had Hatari installed before and it worked just fine.

Based on that I judged the issue was at least not obvious, and that I could patch it later if it turned out to happen to more people. Now you have confirmed that it does and I'll sort out what the solution is. I agree SDL is likely, but I haven't changed SDL for quite some time so I do believe it has something to do with a specific Mac/macOS combo as well.

Thanks for the report.

I moved my hatari.cfg file to make sure it was not the result of an invalid configuration file. The same behavior existed in windowed and full-screen mode. I was able to compile my own version of Hatari using the SDL 2.09 framework. That version appears to work successfully. In full screen mode, I did have garbage appear on the left-hand and right-hand sides of the Mac screen outside of the ST desktop area. However, it appeared to disappear after toggling Hatari a couple of times between windowed and full-screen mode.
