Mac 550 and Fat Frog

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I use a Fat Frog - still on 10.4 - have downloaded 10.9 - what do I do now? Do I format floppy in my PC - if so what format?

 

Also need to use Mac 550s - downloaded gft18_00.zip - has Mac 550 in the gft18_00.txt file what do I do next?

 

I need to be doing by Saturday AM - any ideas?

Hi Bill

 

To install 10.9, first format the floppy disk in the desk (choosing Format Disk from Super User/Floppy Disk)

 

Then unzip the file on your PC and copy the .osf file onto the floppy disk

 

Then boot the desk up with the floppy disk in it - the desk will detect the operating system and will ask (on the Main LCD) if you want to install it. Press ENTER and the new OS will be installed. Note that this will wipe your show file, so please take a backup if you have anything you want to keep.

 

 

 

To use the gft file, unzip it onto a floppy disk (again, formatted in the desk is ideal).

 

On the desk go to Super User / Desk Setup / Assign Fixtures and select <Select Fixture from Floppy Disk> - at this point you should be able to choose from the whole library.

 

Hope this helps,

 

 

Peter
