Video: C Programming on System 6 - Message List Fixes

posted on oct 12th, 2020 with tags mac, retrocomputing, and video
part of C Programming on System 6 series

In this video, I get the list of messages displaying again and fix a bug that occurred when closing a mailbox. I provide a quick summary of creating LDEF procedures in THINK C for drawing custom list cells, which I will expand upon on in a future video.

Meta notes:

  • I received feedback that a recent change to video encoding made them unplayable in certain older browsers. I’m still not sure what the incompatibility was, but I’ve re-encoded with slightly different ffmpeg parameters and confirmed that they can now be played properly.
