As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a big fan of the SID tracker GoatTracker. I’ve been running the OSX/PowerPC port of 2.25 (which no longer seems to be on the covertbitops page) since I discovered it at Notacon/Blockparty earlier this year. But 2.25 has its quirks – I’ll be damned if I can figure out how to make something more complicated than a single loop.
I then tried the unofficial port of 2.61 for OS X – I could edit the orderlist, but it was still a PPC binary and seemed kinda slow.
Today I took matters into my own hands. I downloaded 2.65 and built my own OS X/Intel port. You can download it here. It’s not a complicated port – just some modifications to the makefiles, really.
It’s kind of raw still – all the executables are in ./bin, and there’s no fancy .app wrapper for the binary – just run ./bin/goattrk2.
(FWIW, I did try to build as a Universal Binary, but the executable is still only i386 arch. Not sure why yet.)
Update(1/13/2008) - I think the problems people were having should be fixed now. It was previously dynamically linked to fink’s version of libSDL rather than the framework-ized version. The download should now be statically linked to the fink libSDL, and dynamically linked to only standard system libraries/frameworks.
