It was quite a journey getting it to run.
Is there a decent HyperCard player (vintage 1991) that runs on M1 Macs? I tried HyperCardPreview and while it can display the cards, it can only do so in order: clicking links doesn't work.
Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
That is seriously cool!
were you able to load the stack into hypercardonline.com?
I thought that was what https://infinitemac.org/ was for?
Oh that’s good to know.
I have a HyperCard cookbook app, with recipes from my great aunt, that I wrote. I’d love to extract everything from it.
I'm duly impressed you were able to run this. For Hypercard I generally just move the files on to a virtual disk image running under Sheepshaver (the emulator). I'd love to get a copy of the disk or the files on it, if you're willing to share.
Oh I just realized that Sheepshaver doesn't run on the M1 processor. Oof. It seems a bit meta to run a virtual machine that emulates intel on your M1 just to run a Motorola emulator
*makes note to bring diskmags to next goth show*
Used to go to Death Guild occasionally when I still lived in the Bay Area. Kind of sad to miss it now.
I'm sure your google-fu got you this, but just in case it didn't: https://jamesfriend.com.au/running-hypercard-stack-2021
SheepShaver is intel, not M1.
Looks like there might be a fork (that may work?)
Sheepshaver runs just fine on M1 macs. I use it daily on an M1 MacBook Air and it also worked fine on my M1 Mac Mini. Mini VMac and Basilisk II seem to work fine, too. You won't even notice that it's emulation running in emulation.
I'm duly impressed you were able to run this. For Hypercard, when I'm not running them on original hardware, I generally just move the files on to a virtual disk image running under Sheepshaver (the Mac OS emulator, https://sheepshaver.cebix.net/). I'd love to get a copy of the disk (disk image) or the files on it, if you're willing to share.
You can get a copy of the disk image here
Others can run this hypercard stack on archive.org here
(Looks like they use Mini vMac, which doesn't seem to have the native M1 build that JWZ was asking for)
Apparently, "Ono-Sendai" is Japanese for "Office Depot."
The launch party for that Neuroblast zine was just a week or so ago. May 10th, at the Cat Club a few blocks away from you. More info in the announcement here.
You have a difficult choice ahead of you, when your next Cyberdelia party rolls around...
Small world department: Years(?) ago on here, I said that I gave up on finding a workable web site for buying comics and instead emailed a guy to maintain a pull list. That guy is this hypercard stack's author.
Mini vMac has an Apple Silicon version in beta - https://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/index.html
It needs a Mac Plus ROM image, but those are not hard to locate.
One thing that sucks is that the author of Mini vMac, Paul C. Pratt, disappeared over a year ago.
this is dope
I share this dream
This is awesome. I'd be stoked if someone just handed me something like that.
In the past the future was nicer.
Oh! The guy who produced this runs my local funny book store: James at Isotope Comics, on Fell street in Hayes Valley. He had a stack of those diskettes on the checkout counter when I went in this weekend and gave me one. If anyone is interested (or just wants to browse some comics) he might still have some left. He told me he's also working on a cyberpunk film project.
I use this setup on my M2 https://cancel.fm/hyperjam/ with Mini vMac, this will also allow you to import files to the vMac.
And you say you're hard to shop for!
- Holy FUCK: just LOOK at all of these responses. I had no idea there were that many, um, "Hyperheads" out there still!!!
#apple #hypercard #oldschool
and I don't know what all of this is? Can someone explain it to me, please?
devote some of your Friday to this fun. Google search: “HyperCard, Apple”.
It’s an old database program that was popular on early #appleii #computers
Does this work with #ecosia #mojeek #duckduckgo or other search engines, too, or is #google required for this?
Just kidding :P only a friendly reminder that there are other search engines except of the one of a multi-billion-dollar-company.
I am a little bit biased, because the technology is from #apple but I will take a look at it, because this thread is just really interesting and I am curious how the image is connected to the db and how it works?
I've watched the official introduction to HyperCard (https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=tx_WCIAM4bA) and it reminds me of #obsidian (https://obsidian.md/).
Impressive that someone has created something with a technology which is around 35 years old and even put it on a floppy disk and created a sticker for it.
Hah! And totally fair! I myself use startpage, but – for the sake of convenience – I tend to use the name of the billion dollar company as a verb sometimes.
This web-based Hypercard simulator seems to work
Glad you like my DiskZine! It is awesome to see how much people are enjoying it! NEUROBLAST is cyberpunk and San Francisco-centric, built and written on my old Mac earlier this year, and was designed to run on vintage Macs as well as online.
Run it via the in-browser emulated virtual Mac on Archive.org.
But it is *better* running on an emulator on your home computer (the encoding broke a couple minor things). I run it on my 2022 iMac M1 via SheepShaver. Get it here:
Download the 95mb Zip File containing the SheepShaver classic Mac emulator bundled with Mac OS 9 and Hypercard that James Friend has on that page.
NEUROBLAST includes an original cyberpunk cocktail recipe from mixologist Kirsten Baldock, an AKIRA-inspired tech-noir comic, my “2023 dispatch from the cyberpunk city,” interviews with San Francisco synthesizer musicians and a tabletop game designer who did a game inspired by Junji Ito comics and the movie ANNIHILATION, sci-fi dither / pixel art, a tribute to 90s floppy disk zine creator Jaime Levy, an agri-tech body-horror RPG adventure, the 2090 Tourist Guide to nu-Fresno, and other cool nerdy stuff along those lines. I’m pretty amazed at how much content I was able to cram onto a single Floppy Disk!
It is a free zine but you can also buy physical copies on 3.5” Floppy Disk (and also a delightfully bad sounding 2-song floppy disk album from my sleazy industrial band) at my store here in San Francisco, Isotope Comics on Fell @ Gough, for 5 bucks.
You did a great job on this! And the treasure hunt of trying to figure out how to run the actual bits from the disk was part of the fun.
Ah, that’s perfect! Let me know when your next Cyberdelia party is coming, it would be rad to put out a new NEUROBLAST floppy disk issue for that & have you be one of the guest star collaborators on it!
