is that possible?
dosbox is an ms dos emulator for macosx.

I tried running the exe on dosbox but "this program cannot be run in dos mode " message appear.

does anyone know any way to play noctis on a machintosh?

thank you very much for your help.

What .exe did you try, Mello?

The "GO!.exe" file is infact a 'shortcut exe' to NOCTIS.exe in the 'modules' folder, so instead of trying go!.exe, try noctis.exe inside your modules folder..

However, as far as I know, DosBox and Noctis equals SLOW. Not sure about macs, but maybe you can try DosEmu if you have an Intel-based mac?
a title is a curious thing...

I will either get a Mac or Linux soon. What about Linux? Does it work?

Noctis apparantly works fine under Linux and Dosemu....

...but Bensel is the one who knows about that more than I do..

Is that due to UNIX and DOS being so similar?
written by Xenomorph on Jun 03, 2007 22:59
Where did you get that idea?

Unix and DOS are totally different.

err.. similar? dos and unix? dos and unix are similar like a "covered by dense clouds" planet and a "felisian type" planet (being unix the felisian one). : P

Why do they say you can run simple UNIX programs in DOS then?

Don't believe "them"!!!!

"They" are part of a conspiracy trying to do things that conspiracies do according to conspiracy theory.

Anyway, you cannot say i didn't warn you.

thank you, I managed to get it to work but....

as expected is more than slow,

neither noctis nor noctis CE work oon machintosh? in any version?

Why is that so? I feel so bad : (

you can find some libraries which let you use Unix software on Windows systems. It's called cygwin. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cygwin)
Anyway this software is not exactly the same, it's recompiled to get it to work on cygwin.
(and by the way cygwin is just a workaround for particular purposes. if you want to use unix stuff it's always better to use it on its own system, of course. : P )

On the opposite side, you can have some DOS (or windows) stuff to works on Unix using some DOS emulators (or Wine for Windows software -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_%28software%29).
Same note goes also for this case: the result is probably different from what you can expect. Some softwares work good, some others can give you troubles...

sadly noctis IV was developed to work on DOS. : /

Granpire viking man said also: «*sigh*, I'm probably the stupidest person on these forums.»

naw. don't say this. don't fall into drama. this things are probably new for you. that's all. you have all the time to learn.
(and Peterpaul is just joking.. : P)

EDIT: oh, and by the way, I forgot to say hello to Mello! Welcome to the forums dude. : )

Ok, sorry for bumping, but I can't read any real answer here.

Macs are no more uising IBM/Motorola chips and have switched to Intel since some time.

Being now Intel based you can install Windows on a Mac. When booting you're deciding which OS to run.

There's another option (of course I'm always talking of INTEL Macs).
There's a software (which name I can't remember, maybe I'll update this later) that lets you run Windows programs direclty on OSX, but I think that for Noctis it should be safer run in a native environment.

All you need is you have to find (buy...) a copy of Windows.

I'm quite new at Noctis, and I'm surfing the forums to avoid making useless questions....but reading about Lino's main features (fast + portability) I thought I could easily find compilers for several platforms.

How's that? I'm a java developer, I "cross-platform" even compiled files.
Please, do not read as polemics. I'm a lazy guy, but I'm curious and I'm looking forward to learn Lino, but its portability is what I'm interested in the most.

Anyway, since no one said "Hello" to me in the Introduce Yourself forums, I 'm at least writing again my sincere compliments to Alex and his crew.

don't worry about being welcomed late. It's just because we're having some troubles with the site during the last 2-3 days. It's often off-line.
And I hope it's a solved issue now. It's not nice to watch it going up and down all the time! >: P

The software used to run windows apps on mac is probably named Parallel desktop, or Boot Camp...
But I have no idea if it works with noctis. : ?

I'm afraid that the Lino portability is still a working-on feature. The only RTMs available are for Windows and GNU/Linux. But we expect this feature to be improved in future.. : P

And btw, Alex hasn't a crew. Just this community. He does anything by himself. : P
