Old Processing version for Mac OS9?

Hi all, I am relatively new to Processing, but see evidence that early versions ran on MacOS9 but I could not find binaries anywhere on the web and some threads that say it’s not on archive.org - anyone know if the binaries still exist and can be made available for experimental and archival purposes? Thank you!

Hi! Welcome to the forum!

Sounds like an exciting project! I’m not sure about processing but I found Design By Numbers is still downloadable here

Hi @micuat,

Nice discovery, is Design By Numbers the ancestor of Processing from the MIT? :yum:

Yes Design By Numbers - Wikipedia

Quite an interesting story behind it that John Maeda didn’t encourage Ben and Casey to develop a tool on their own, but that turned into what we use :slight_smile:

Yeah but it seems they gave up on supporting it quite early https://forum.processing.org/alpha/board_Collaboration_action_display_num_1059169532.html. Back in those day P3D was not emulated not OpenGL.
