As the title states.. so, I have finally the long awaited ONYX PB G4 Software disc software which for some reason is missing on the garden. I tried to upload it, but it doesn't seem to work and malfunctions - Can someone guide me on how to upload this, as many have asked for this software disc set which was a PIA to find, but i finally found it and now want to make it available on the Garden.

This is for WickNix since he is a moderator I believe on that site and knows a lot about how to upload apps there ?

Thanks,

Thanks man ! The Garden has been looking for this for awhile. Though no one uses Puma anymore, I thought it my assistance to help get this over to them. This is the 4 disc set for ONYX G4 Titanium 550/667 mhz.

You're welcome. :) It's very thoughtful of you and there's bound to be someone at some stage who'll want to play around with Puma and they'll appreciate its availability.

I don't have anything to do with the garden unfortunately. I'm just a user of the site that occasionally uploads a few things for safe keeping. There might be a file size limit which is causing your uploads to fail. The best i can suggest is contact FogWraith on IRC #macgarden as i believe he is one of the main site maintainers.

Cheers

I've tried recently and uploads just conk out. The progress bar doesn't move at all, which is a longstanding bug. The suggestion is to force http rather than https on the upload and it might improve matters. It didn't help for me and I've given up for now. There are one or two threads on the forum there if you want to read all about it.

I haven't had any issues uploading things to the Garden as of late. Though I am always using the HTTP version, as @weckart mentions.

Unlike Macintosh Repository, the Garden does not work in a top-down fashion, it functions from the bottom-up. Anyone with an account (which is free and requires minimal information to create) can add any software entry, edit any piece of information on said entry, and upload and remove archived software, in addition to post a comment anywhere, or make a thread on the forums.

Once you've made an account, creating an entry is a relatively straightforward process. Depending on the nature of the content to be uploaded, all you have to do is select the 'Add Game' or 'Add App' button in the top-right of the site (in your case it would be an app), upload the software with pictures or screenshots, and simply enter the relevant information into the fields. Once everything is in, just hit 'Save' at the bottom of the page. Afterward, anyone with an account can rate the software, comment on it, or further edit the page themselves.

EDIT: I can confirm that file uploads are functioning normally for me on the site's HTTP version.

I can confirm that the mirror that hosts the downloads is down, but uploads work fine after I delete and upload again. Had my upload of Mupen64 on the first attempt show up as 0 in size.

My uploads just show no progress after several hours and just crash with an error message. Tried on different computers and OSes. Same result every time.

Ok, is there another way to get this over ? I am sure someone there will want to get the original ONYX disc package who has a titanium ONYX version ?

Mmm, when clicking 'select file' in the form, followed by upload to the right, the bar will indeed show up though not do much else than say that the upload is starting. It sort of broke itself when support for secure http was added. I believe it has to do with Drupal.

Creating the input fields and selecting the files, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking save usually yields better results. The lack of progress bars (that work) can be a bit annoying.

We do however have other options, one such mundane option can be found stickied in the general forum, and has to do with large file submissions. I'm all for assisting to the best of my efforts, provided I get contacted in some way.

Just my experience but I’ve used ancient Safari 1.3-5.x, latest Firefox, and Chrome (the latter two on multiple OSes) just fine when updating my uploads.

Can I upload it to the via IRC channel ? I need to get this uploaded, so it can be available for those who need them.
