Re: [hatari-devel] Can't build Hatari on Mac if PortMidi is not installed

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I was thinking of trying to implement direct file access in the Mac GUI myself. I have a couple of questions:

- What precisely is it that is needed here? Is it just porting the "read mifi input from file" / "write midi output to file" UI from the SDK GUI to the Mac GUI?
- What's the best way to test this? I'd ideally like to test it with an Atari app that outputs real MIDI events but I confess I never used MIDI back when I had a real ST and I'm not sure what would be the easiest application to use for testing purposes. Or would it be enough to just output a .cfg file and verify that the contents look ok?

I've added that to bugs.txt.
