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


I assume it to mean that MacOS doesn't just 2x the window, but
creates it in the size requested by the application.

Maybe that's somehow related?

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

What about the one here:

	- Eero

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.

Based on what I saw, I am assuming the problem will be with Macs with a
Retina (HiDPI) display. I doubt the problem is related to Mojave. I just
wanted to provide as much information as possible. I assume that simply
replacing SDL 2.0.7 with SDL 2.0.9 will probably resolve the problem.

When I attempt to start Hatari 2.2 on my MacBook Pro (macOS Mojave
10.14.3, Retina display), it only shows the lower right hand corner of the
ST desktop and the indicators were far too large as well. 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
Since I have a very plain Mac, I am assuming other Mac users
(probably with Retina displays) will have problems with this release.
Everyone else,
I was unable to generate an Xcode project using CMake 3.13. I had to
downgrade to CMake 3.12 in order to generate the Xcode project. After that,
my old compilation instructions worked perfectly. I am assuming there were
major changes to CMake in 3.13.

Troed built the macOS version and he told me he tested it successfully
on Mojave too. But maybe there're some differences to take into account,
Troed might comment on this.
