Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

Music visualizer & programmable rendering demo. Plugin to iTunes, or run as a standalone app visualizing audio Line In or internal CD.

1st dL is version 2.7.1 , perhaps among the best version for PowerPC OS X. It's missing the original wrapper and the documentation, so until that gets fixed you can copy in the documentation from the 2nd or 3rd download (which are here to see if you don't agree that v2.7.1 is best).

2nd dL is v2.6.5 exactly as it appears on Macworld cover CD 21.09 September 2004. iTunes and standalone.

3rd dL is v2.8.1 exactly as it appears on Macworld cover CD 22.07 July 2005. For iTunes only; the standalone app is no longer included in this Trial version, purchasing G-Force Gold edition had become required to obtain the app.

The "G-Force" folder in the 1st dL can run standalone if placed anywhere, BUT to run in iTunes place the entire G-Force folder in your "Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-ins" and then make an alias of its standalone app. Copy this alias to your Applications folder and launch the alias to run as standalone.

The author recommends a G3 processor or better.
G-Force v2.7.1 while the "standalone" app runs great without iTunes, its Visualizer plugin requires iTunes v6 or less.

Making programming changes to "boot.txt", sometimes Quitting and relaunching G-Force/iTunes is not enough to receive changes, and then I must erase all Library/Preferences/G-Force files after Quitting before relaunching.

Background pictures ("sprites") in G-Force v2.7.1 (outerspace themed) appear too often and stay on the screen too long. These timings are adjustable within "boot.txt"
