Oh, and a lot of these just display nag screens anyway, I know Espresso lets you still use it, it's just that it makes you painfully wait to save your pages.

PS: Bugdom and Nanosaur 1 cam with my iMac the time they were shipped, added Cro-Mag Rally later from the install disks of my PowerMac G4.

PPS: you can ad SGRAM SO-Dimm (sometimes called VRAM = Video-RAM) to Rev. A models, if you haven't done that. It normally comes with 2MB (soldered), but you can go up to 6MB total.

Thanks for sharing that link. Glad I was able to snatch it before it went offline (if it ever does).

Adding two more rendering apps, and they're both currently free (!!!) and work nice on my G5. In case they disappear, I'll keep the zips, and they already have the serials with them, so all is good.

And you can laugh because Bryce currently works on Intel, but hasn't been updated for neither Lion or Mountain Lion and it looks like it won't for at least another year. And that's probably my favorite program, so it sucks because I'd have to boot camp my Intel Mac to even use it on it.

The setup files might freeze/look like it force closed on you for some reason (all their software is buggy though), but if you leave it for 5 minutes, it'll be okay.

Oh, and OS X 10.2 support in Hexagon...

Hexagon 2.5
Requirements: Power PC G4 Processor® (G5 or greater recommended), 1 GHz (1.8 GHz or faster recommended), OpenGL compatible graphics card with at least 128 MB RAM (256 MB+ recommended), OS X 10.2 or above, 512 MB RAM (1 GB+ recommended)

Hexagon 2.5 is a modeling application that allows artists to create their own 3D objects from scratch using a freehand brush-style set of tools. These freehand brush modeling tools let artists sculpt 3D models by pulling, pushing, pinching, inflating and smoothing the geometry. The speed at which you can create a complete model is astounding. With support for graphics tablets, users can design their own creations with precision and flexibility. Through the new 3D paint and UV-mapping tools, users can quickly apply textures using brushes, imported textures or choose from a large choice of predefined textures.

http://cdn-sw.daz3d.com/hexagon/Hexa...c32_bundle.zip

Bryce 7 Pro
Requirements: 700 MHz (1 GHz or faster recommended), OpenGL compatible graphics card with at least 128 MB RAM (Drivers supporting OpenGL 1.1 recommended), OS X 10.4 or above (Not currently compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion), 512 MB RAM (1GB recommended)

For more than a decade, artists of all mediums have known Bryce as the affordable 3D software for achieving breathtaking realistic imagery. Bryce 7 gives you ability to work faster and create more realistic environments than ever before.

http://cdn-sw.daz3d.com/bryce/Bryce_...c32_bundle.zip

Ill give a few words of advice (as someone who runs a similar server - except mine is all abandonware)

If your gonna post links here i would make sure everything your posting is free software, if it isn't your liable to get the thread deleted (you probably will not get banned for this, but you'll get a warning) at least that is what happend to me

Also keep good backups! i nearly lost everything about a year ago (had ~110gb at this point) when my raid fell apart, in the one week my backup wasn't running and had been deleted due to moving server hw

And i hope you have allot of HDD space, mine now eats up around 320Gb of space, and thats all old stuff, so you'll need way more than that (and rember i have a tiny proportion of the files out there)

But this looks like a really good project, great to see PPC OSX software is being preserved

Adding this since I'm currently self-teaching myself. .

Unity
Requirements: Mac OS X 10.4+

Unity delivers a stable and scalable platform for creating captivating content. Content that is efficient to create, and that works on low as well as high-end hardware.

Unity is the only Mac-based high-end game development tool sporting a stylish pro-app GUI, no-friction workflow and top-of-the-line technical features such as extensible graphics, great particle effects, highly optimized scripting, the Ageia physX Engine, skinned character animation and ragdolls, and making standalone games for Mac and Windows (and Dashboard Widgets and web-plugins).

Editor: http://download.unity3d.com/download...nity-2.6.1.dmg

It comes with the web player. This is the kind of stuff made with it: http://unity3d.com/gallery/made-with-unity/game-list Completely useless for iOS, but good for all the other options. You can get the free license.

Aside from potential legal stuff in terms of hosting "free" or otherwise licensed software that the original manufacturer has taken down, thanks, I've been trying to find archives of various programs for a while and you often get punted to the Intel version. Will get downloading when I get home!

I have the same issue with being forwarded to Intel versions too. Even got a message on Google in Safari asking me to install Chrome, which is of course Intel only.

A lot of it is still on the original servers, it's just a matter of finding it.

For those that just bought the MacHeist 4 bundle, there are a couple that work on PowerPC surprisingly!

Scrivener
Requirements: Mac OS X Tiger & Leopard

Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on helping you get to the end of that awkward first draft.

http://scrivener.s3.amazonaws.com/Scrivener-Legacy.dmg

DiskTools Pro
Requirements: Compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 and higher

DiskTools Pro is a total system utility for the Mac, and the only one that allows you to schedule when to perform important tasks such as file defragmentation, backup and bad sector repair. With DiskTools Pro there is also no need to boot from a DVD, CD or separate volume in order to find and repair bad sectors, defragment files and perform many other tasks on the startup volume.

http://www.macwareinc.com/products/D.../overview.html

Literally just a couple, But just so you know. Scrivener is very, very good!

How is this coming along?

Since I now have a loose quad not doing anything I could probably help as a mirror or some such thing.

**edit** even better I have a Celeron hackintosh that'll hold 8 drives and sip power..

I've been doing something similar for a while, but with a simpler concept: only stuff that runs on an iMac G3 with Tiger. I'll list anything that (at one point) was freely available to download, even if that 'free' product went on to become a paid product in newer versions (Senuti, iStats Menu).

The only recommendation I have is that you don't host downloads for iTunes. Apple really don't like that, and sites like OldApps just show "no longer downloadable from this site" when you try to download iTunes.

I list iTunes on my page, but only because Apple removed the 'Download iTunes 8.2.1 for G3 Macs' link from the iTunes download page. I think it might be wise if I remove it from my page too.

Nicely done. Don't remove it! Apple will slowly remove everything OS 9-Tiger (like they're already beginning to) and we'll need those for legacy. I don't think at this point they mind, but it takes resources on their servers that could be put into some other use.

Also, I'm organizing all programs into folders as such:

Processor---->OS Version Requirement---->Program

For example, let's say a program requires a G4/G5 processor and only runs on Leopard. I'll organize the folders as such:

G4/G5---->Leopard---->"Example Program"

If you're interested in providing some links, feel free to contribute.
I'd love to help out hosting this - send me a PM if you're interested. I could even buy a domain name for this project, and host it on my 1&1 hosted server.



PS - this was my 100th post!

It seems as though Taylor has disappeared- both from MMC and Macrumors. I could keep this going. I plan to use Joomla and JDownloads. spyguy, I'll PM you about your generous hosting offer, as I don't have the cash.

As for organization, I will use a different organization scheme-
I'm thinking about having it like this: If you wanted iTunes for OS9, you would go the Music category, go on the alphabetical list to iTunes, and would be presented with a list of all versions of iTunes on the server. In the short description (or possibly the title) you would see the last OS it works with and all of the requirements.

If anyone has any ideas for categories (note: we can also put categories within categories, eg music>music composition>...), please post them here and hopefully we will get this off the ground again!

No, but in the G3 world, it's the best alternative available (900MHz processor, which is the fastest, and 640MB RAM, which is the max).

We could build this in iWeb in 10 minutes, actually.
