OSX flashcart tool for NEO PCE Cart with a GUI.. beta 1

OSX flashcart tool for NEO PCE Cart with a GUI.. beta 1 
by mr.spiv

Right.. I am getting bored with this project and the enthusiast volunteers of beta testers (pun intended..).

more info: http://www.neoflash.com/forum/index.php/topic,5941.0.html

It is for Intel based Macs.. no PPC support, sorry. Also, I have myself used SnowLeopard (OSX 10.6.2) as a development environment and have not tested this in anything earlier than that. Support for TG-16 should also be in place.. obviously I have not managed to test it. There is no support for save ram as I don't own adequate hardware.

So, give it a try. I am not interested in hints to improve the functionality or GUI layout. However, I am very interested in TG-16 testers and experiences on OSX 10.5 or earlier. If you push the cancel button during the flash writing, it takes a while before process actually stops. It is supposed to do so…

Keep in mind that this is just the first public beta, which happens to work for me pretty well. When you report bugs etc anomalies remember to state your Mac type, OSX version, R0mz you were flashing, current setting in the GUI, flash cart size/type, and PC-Engine flavor.

Any TG-16 users there? I would really need some testers.. Also, currently there is no any rom detection logic. Would one be needed? At the moment the stuff is crafted to work from PCE point of view, which might be confusing some times…
