Awesome! Thanks Andreas :D
I just read this and installed it a couple of days ago on OSX 10.9.5 (Mavericks).

For those who find the download/installation a little confusing, here's a quick start (as I found it confusing myself):

1) go to the download page as mentioned earlier, click on the "Download" button, then select "Download ZIP" as shown in this screenshot:

2) Unzip the downloaded file, open its folder and locate the "release" subfolder. You'll find "AtariX.app.zip" which you need to double-click to unzip on your Mac

3) Move (or copy) the "AtariX" app over to your Mac's "Applications" folder

4) Now start AtariX as you would any Mac app

5) A message window will pop up saying the following:

6) Within AtariX, go to File - Choose RootFS... where you select folder named MAGIC_C (spelt exactly like that in all upper-case) which you need to create and put anywhere you like on your Mac hard drive (i.e. ~/Documents/AtariX/MAGIC_C)

7) Next, go to File - Revert RootFS... and press the "Create or revert" button.
The needed files will now be created inside that folder.

8) You're done and can now run the emulator by going to File - Run.
If things don't look quite right (resolution etc.) you can change this by going to AtariX - Preferences...
You might need to quit AtariX, then start it again in order for the changes to take effect

9) Some other useful preference changes (in my opinion):
- "Emulator bei programmstart starten" (makes the Atari desktop appear immediately (so you don't have to select File-Run each time you run AtariX)
- "Atari bildschirm" (select the Atari desktop resolution here -personally I want to fill my entire Mac screen with the Atari desktop, so I've chosen my Mac display resolution of 1920x1200 pixels)
- "Atari sprache" (I assumed this would be for selecting the AtariX menu language, or the Atari desktop menu language, but it doesn't change anything so I have no idea what it does -anyone know?)

10) Installing an additional Atari drive:
The Atari boot drive (C) is now already set, but in case you want to add another drive (i.e. "D", "E", "F" etc.), do as follows:

a) Create a new folder on your Mac hard drive with a descriptive name of your choice (i.e. "Atari drive D" or "MAGIC_D" etc.)
b) In AtariX, go to AtariX - Preferences... then click on the "Laufwerke" tab
c) select a drive you want to add (i.e. "D" as shown in the screenshot below) by clicking on it
d) click on "Pfad..." (path) and select the folder you just created on your Mac hard drive (i.e. "Atari drive D" or "MAGIC_D" etc.)
atarix_laufwerke.png

e) quit AtariX, then restart it
f) While in AtariX, within the Atari desktop go to Options - Install drives which will make a new drive icon appear.
To save the setup go to Options - Save options (within the Atari desktop, otherwise known as "MagxDesk" in this configuration) in order to save your new settings

The new drive can be useful for testing out downloaded Atari ST software by moving them over while on the Mac OSX side without accidently deleting/moving/renaming the existing Atari-related files which are on the C drive :wink:

Hell yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D


Kernel sources not there yet though

For the interested audience: AES kernel sources have been uploaded a few hours ago. A nice feature -- they are all UTF-8 now so no problem to recompile on modern platforms.

Funny trivia: VDI had been provided by Behne&Behne (NVDI!) so if Andreas find sources (as opposed to binaries only) we will have NVDI (kernel) source code as a bonus. :)

That would be great !!! :D
But if it's like the AES it's probably in ASM. :(

This will be extremely useful in many ways.

We will see, but my information is that the Behne&Behne make only the Falcon part from the MagiC VDI.

The DOS is definitely in ASM.

Large parts of NVDI are 68k assembler, yes.

You're most welcome. Glad it helped getting it to work :D
I agree it's amazing -especially to have an Atari ST with a huge high resolution desktop in colour!

Hey, AtariX is very cool indeed! Just installed it and have been playing with it.

Any way to change key bindings? My "y" key produces a "z", and vice versa... 8O
