here are the OSX step-by-step instructions:


* install MacPython 2.5
* open Terminal and type: which python

Welcome to Darwin!
Hyde:~ Hyde$ which python
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/python
Hyde:~ Hyde$

* copy the whole path: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/python

* go to your g2ools-1.0 folder and open the 'nm2g2.py' file WITH IDLE

* change the first line (red text above the '# Copyright (c) 2006,2007 Matt Gerassimoff') to:

#!(your path)

mine looked like:

#!/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/python

* hit 'Apple-S' to Save

* close IDLE

---

* open Terminal and type: cd Desktop/g2ools (if that's where it is) and then: chmod u+x nm2g2.py

mine looked like: cd Desktop/g2ools chmod u+x nm2g2.py

(hit Enter)

* then type ./nm2g2.py (patch name) for each patch you want converted like this:

./nm2g2.py Chaos001.pch

(hit Enter)

you're all done - the NM1 patch will be converted Smile thanks to qfingers, Stefan, 3phase, and everyone else who helped make this possible on OSX!


And then

I would just like to point out to other people that before you edit nm2g2.py as in Hyde's instructions, try skipping ahead to the part where you open a terminal and write cd and stuff, because I didn't have do this (you still need to update to Python 2.5). If you don't get it to work, try again from the start.

Very Happy IT WORKS!!!

Although I had to do the following -

In terminal, type ./nm2g2.py patchname (leave .pch off the end)

then manually put .pch2 on the end of the new file

Thanks to everyone involved for this great free software and advice (particualy qfingers, 3phase and cappy) - sterling effort!

True to my word, i will make a donation to the forum (although I will have to wait for pay day).

Thanks a million!

What's the terminal...?
I've downloaded Mac Python and all I can open is the IDLE and Python Launcher. Where is the terminal??

The terminal is a Mac OS program. When you can't find how to open a terminal window a mac head wil have to help you out, as I never used a Mac.

Try entering "Terminal" in the little magnifying glass text box (it's called Sherlock, I think?). You should get a "Program" hit called Terminal.

You should also be able to find it in a folder in Programs/Utilities or something similar.
