It's common nowadays for DMG LCD retrofit kits (from various manufacturers) to come with a replacement PCB. If nothing else, almost out of necessity. Examples are RIPS, Funny-playing's IPS kit. The last link is a comparison between different kits to help you make an informed decision. … 9947761725

Thank you Nitro! I did do a little bit of looking into IPS mods but clearly not enough. Deffo something I'm going to look into if just to have a few more DMGs running rather than gathering dust.

I remember reading a few years back about how someone was working on a complete replacement for the front LCD board (including screen) and was wondering if these ever went into production. I can't seem to find anything about it in any of the usual places (here, kitsch etc) and at this point in wondering if I'm misremembering / colating memories.

I have quite a few working back panels, but only like 1.5 working fronts, just trying to make some use out of the contents of my to-be-repaired box

idk if you still need one, but ill part with mine for £30 + postage if youre game

i believe you could get ubuntu running on that machine (maybe do it as a dual-boot in case you want to use old mac software too), which might let you use the linux version of piggy tracker on it

thats a shout, its not my mac, but the owner is looking for new uses for it so this might go down well, thanks

Yeah your wheelhouse on that thing is going to be old PPC Mac  audio software. Of which there are myriad. I'm sure there's still stuff around on torrent sites and shit. I only advocate that for legacy software.

currently got some things to test along these lines, a couple trackers on woolyss seemed like they'd work, or at least worth a shot.

The things thats kinda stumping me is that on the piggy homepage it even says;

Rah, well thats somewhat disappointing, its one of the semicircle macs with the protruding screen face thing so i dont think it can run any versions of OSX higher than the one its already on;

If i cant use it to do piggy compositions, are there any other trackers that would run on such minimal specs? id preferably not have to emulate anything, writing for any console/system/whatever is cool, id just like to do something

Ran both the versions of lgpt in the rarchive on my mac but neither of them worked, they opened and closed instantly. Its a p old mac, running OSX 10.3.smth I think snow leopard? The mac install is basically clean so maybe there are libraries in missing, I tried looking through some support threads and searching but couldn't find anything. Any help would be much appreciated, trynna work on my old psp/canoo stuff but both of them are very inactive

decent, galaxy wolf x abo-chan when?
