RenderCity Server Network Upgrade

Postby Mike Wheeler » Thu Apr 21, 2005 6:54 pm

We are pleased to announce the network for the RenderCity server has been recently upgraded. The upgrade should make the rendering process somewhat faster, and significantly more reliable.

Best wishes,

Speaking of Upgrades....

Any other "upgrades" you can talk about Artifice :?: Something on the software side? It would be nice to get a sense of progress. Macs now ship without Classic. Isn't it about time to ship an OSX version that runs natively? Not being critical...just being curious.

Macs now ship without Classic.

Actually, new Macs do ship with the Classic Environment, though it is not pre-installed. Perhaps that's what you meant?

The Classic Environment is even supported with Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4) and looks to be included with new Macs that ship with Tiger (though still not pre-installed). Admittedly, Apple hasn't gone out of its way to make this information really obvious.

But for example, if you read through the Tech Specs page for any current Mac product line, you should notice a table detailing the current available product configurations. And in either the Software or in the System Software row (it's inconsistent, sadly) you'll find the "Classic Environment" listed.

As an example, take a look at the Tech Spec page for the Power Mac G5, at:

The location of the Classic Environment installer may vary, depending on the exact model and version of Mac you own.

For example, the Classic installer is located on the third grey software restore DVD that comes with the new G5 iMac and is called simply "Additional Software" on the disc label.

That disc includes basic installation instructions for the Classic Environment. In some cases, I've noticed that Apple refers to the Classic Environment as "Classic Support", which might also be a point of confusion.

With pretty much any default Classic Environment isntalltion, DesignWorkshop should run really well. Nonetheless, we currently recommend using DW with the latest versions of both Mac OS 10.3 and 9.2 installed.

If you have difficulty using DesignWorkshop in the OS X Classic Environment, or any other supported platform, please contact <a href="">Artifice Support</a>. We'll be glad to help!
