    Hi,

    I've been excited about the mac release now for a couple of months--especially since the "coming soon" advertisement.  Any news on the release date for either the itunes port or the jack release?

    Thanks,
    P

     
    • Sigh...

      Trust me- I'd love to get the mac port in the shape I intended it to be. Alas, my company macbook has crapped the bed. I'm in the process of waiting for another macbook or buying one used if I can find a good deal.

      There is still a chance that Alistair makes another release soon, however.

    • One more thing:

      For the ambitious apple users, I could probably step them through how to compile the projectM / JackOSX port. Perhaps I'll add a wiki entry for it.

      I, for one, am willing to go through the whole compilation process. I am not too familiar with the internals of mac, however, I know enough about Linux to compile from source.

      Lemme know when a Wiki page is made!

      I tried compiling from SVN src on my MBP-- Didn't work out too well.

      I'm not too savvy but I used MacPorts to install cmake and the following happened below:

      NB: I turned of libvisual because I don't know if I need that, and it wasn't in MacPorts.

      Mac OS X 10.5.5 (Leopard). Intel MacBook Pro 17" Laptop (Feb 08).

       
    • Turn off USE_OPENMP in cmake and keep trudging along from there.

      Hi, I thought I should let everyone know that I'm currently working on a new mac build of projectM.  It's an iTunes plug-in based on the new release of projectM, and when I'm done I hope to have pixel shaders working, as well as a user interface for configuring the plug-in.  So far, I have the basic plug-in working great, but no pixel shader support and no UI just yet.  Hopefully it won't take too long to finish it!

    Hey!

    I am a developer who has the following to offer:

    - I lurve the milkdrop in winamp, and it is the only thing that makes me want windows
    - I have done basic open GL coding (followed NeHe's tutorials)
    - I have written code in an assortment of languages for 12 years
    - I really want to help make this project better than it already is

    You have anything I can do?

    6 month bump - still itching for an itunes plugin in os x. Any status updates? Has the project been abandoned?

    XBMC projectmanager here. I understand 2.0 doesn't work on OSX, and before it does, we won't bother making 2.0 an xbmc visualizer, so it would be great if some projectm devs could make it work

    Thanks in advance

    Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. 2 years later and I'm still looking forward to projectm coming out for the Mac. Hope it's coming along- I see some previous posters have offered their programming skills for the Mac port, has this had any breakthroughs in the code? Or rather Is there a specific technological wall that is preventing further  development (ie is it impossible to continue development?)
    Cheers

      Hey pinkpanther, if you're still around and waiting for a projectM 2.1 OSX build, I have a fully packaged .dmg for you to try. It works for me on Lion and for at least two other people.. Download it here.
