Well...

I've used Apples for my desktops since I pulled a PowerPC out of a dumpster in the late '90s, then upgraded to a eMac then the first iMac which, being purchased in 2008 certainly outlived expectations before croaking right before my last class ended with a capstone paper on it. It was that paper and the need to transfer it that caused me to put out the $1700+ for this machine.

Now "Raphtalia" is a perfectly serviceable piece of kit that does its job, but...

Today, for the first time in the 5 and a half months since I got the new machine, I began seriously poking around my old files seeing what still worked. I knew that my Windows partition did not speak to Mojave but now that Windows 7 doesn't exist anymore, an upgrade is out of the question (unless I purchase Windows 10) so my iMac's virtual machine is no longer viable.

My old copy of MMDAI won't run on Mojave and it seems that the program is no longer supported at all, so I can't get Miku Miku Dance to work on my iMac in any capacity. My old files are likely just lost. Likewise, the Ren'Py files are all unreadable, though the associated word files are saved. A good swath of my music did not survive the transfer, but it was mostly the swath that I'd....paid for. (Way to discourage piracy DRM!)

While MMD doesn't support iMac in any way, I note that (if I read this right), that there is actually a fork for MMD that claims to work on a Rasberry Pi. 



UPDATE: Good grief! There's Rasberry Pi support for Ren'Py too!

1 If you still have a working and bootable windows 7 install on that partition, the free windows 10 upgrade technically still exists

I suspect MSFT really wants people off of 7 to avoid the bad press of botnets and stuff.
