Topics I've Started

Red Box project? (Possibly a project by Apple to run Win software)

25 October 2005 - 06:10 AM

I just pulled this up, it seems there is speculation about an old (rumored, as far as I know) project called Red Box, the attempt to run Windows Apps on Macs!

Now it seems some speculate it may be back in action as Apple is going Intel!

Whether or not it's true, I'd like to know about the Red Box project and whether it's real or not! :P

NEED GOOD JAVASCRIPT OR VB6.0 PROGRAMMERS!

22 October 2005 - 07:23 AM

I figured some people here may be of interest.
I finnaly decided to get this project together, it's one I thought of a long time back.

My feat is to make a program that will take VB6.0 source code files and convert them into HTML.
It sounds crazy, but I think I can pull it off...so far, I'm about halway making a suitable window frame in JavaScript, it works in FF and IE and functions like a normal window...it's just, well, fake...only an image.

As you can tell I am in the early stage of this, actually getting the framework made...but I expect to be quit far pretty soon!
Have you seen flyakiteosx.com?
Well, this takes that to the next level.
Raises the bar on how functional the windows are, and actually makes apps portable to a web interface.

So here's my current to-do list:
- change the variables into arrays to allow a multiple window environment
- rename and edit the focus, click, and exit functions to resemble VB6.0 framework
- put the window settings into editable variables
- add icon support
- add title support
- make an app that converts VB syntax into a JS syntax

Windows Boot Screens!!! (Replacements)

20 October 2005 - 08:59 PM

Yeah, I've finally got to working on some ideas I've had for boot screens, well...
Most of the happen to be complete, I just need to package them to make it easier to install.
Preferably, I will be packaginf them in BootSkin format, for those that don't know, BootSkin is a free app for Stardock that lets you replace the windows boot screen with ease.

As you can see, I have attached a preview for the skins I already completed...
They may not look super fancy, what I mean by that is it is very tough to make a nice looking bootskin.
EACH IMAGE CONTAINS 16 COLORS OR LESS, so yeah, it's tough to make them look that nice.

You may be thinking, their not packaged for download yet, why make the topic?
Well, I made this topic to accept requests!
While I'm working on these, people can post ideas and such for more screens!

Works on Chaintech VNF4! (Somewhat)

19 October 2005 - 01:02 AM

Here's more info on the problems I'm having:
http://forum.osx86pr...?showtopic=3631

Pretty much here's my setup:
1GB DDR400
939pin Athlon 64 3000+ (OC'ed .5ghz, very cool and stable)
Chaintech nForce4 Motherboard
Integrated nForce Gigabit LAN
Integrated nVidia 7.1 Sound (Realtek AC'97)
SATA (Old IDE HD used instead for OS X)
Toshiba Dual-Layer DVD+RW
PCIe Chaintech NIVIDIA GeForce 6200
PS2 Wireless Keyboard & Optical Mouse
and some cheap wireless card (Forgot the actual model, but the generic Realtek RTL8180 WLAN drivers work)

It runs real smooth and fast, even considering the HD is 3GB from 96'!!!
Anyways, there is no sound, burn support, lan, wlan, and 1024x768 is the only shown resolution.

So it works...its just pretty much useless right now.
Just thought I'd let you guys know.

*I'll keep you guys updated on my progress w/ compatability w/ the VNF4!

-----Update-----
Sounds works (only stereo, no surround) after editing the device ID in AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext of AppleAC97Audio.kext

Trouble with Chaintech VNF4 Motherboard

19 October 2005 - 12:57 AM

Here's a link to start off with:
http://www.chaintech...No=13&PISNo=318

Ok, I've got a fairly nice setup (if you consider the fact that its a value PC, yes...it is NICE)
1GB DDR400
939pin Athlon 64 3000+ (OC'ed .5ghz, very cool and stable)
Chaintech nForce4 Motherboard
Integrated nForce Gigabit LAN
Integrated nVidia 7.1 Sound (Realtek AC'97)
SATA
Toshiba Dual-Layer DVD+RW
PCIe Chaintech NIVIDIA GeForce 6200
PS2 Wireless Keyboard & Optical Mouse
and some cheap wireless card (Forgot the actual model, but the generic Realtek RTL8180 WLAN drivers work)


Well, I've looked up alot of this stuff...it took me forever to get a good patch too...well, its now installed.
BUT, as I said, thats just the beginning!
ALMOST NONE OF MY HARDWARE WORKS!
Wiki says:
- SATA on nForce are out of question...don't work.
- Many AC'97 Chipsets don't work...many have been reported fixed with changing driver stuff around. (Card not detected, but still says Built-in Audio)
- My wireless card doesn't work, which is wierd, because I've managed to get it working somewhat in linux.
- My DVD Burner is detected and such, but the "About this Mac" profile says "Burning Support: Yes (unsupported)"
- No LAN card detected at all!
- No 1280x1024 Resolution, not even 800x600...only shows 1024x768.


Now you guys know about what works w/ the Chaintech VNF4 and what doesn't...
So...Can anyone help me out?


Oh, yeah...forgot to tell you guys something...
Check out this cool site (warning, Broadband highly reccomended)
