The server was revoked some time ago, after I decided to back down from maintaining the project. I'm surprised this listing is even still here, but because it's lasted for so long i'll turn a copy of 2.3.3 over to MacUpdate for hosting.

LeopardAssist doesn't normally have a problem with CPU upgrades, but since most of the CPU upgrades available on the market push the system past the required 867MHz barrier anyway, there's simply no need for this tool on those systems.

The software was and still is only a frontend to compile and execute a shell script to be deployed into the system NVRAM at boot time, and considering just how little there is to work with in the way of faking a CPU clock speed, it's been developed to the best of my abilities. Now with the release of Snow Leopard, there's not much more that can be done to push LeopardAssist into the future.

Just fitted a Realtek RTL8139 card to one of my old QuickSilver Server G4's. Fitted the card, installed this driver. Despite the driver being written for Mac OS X Jaguar, it still works without a hiccup under Mac OS X Tiger. Fantastic.

I picked up an eMac G4 and decided to do a bit of extra work on LeopardAssist. Did away with boot.txt as requested by beta testers, now writing the 867mhz script directly into the Parameter RAM. This should correct problems on many systems which previously had issues finding boot.txt on restart (a majority of cases).

Leopard sure won't speed on these older machines, although some of them have been upgraded, particularly those with aftermarket graphics cards which will allow Leopard's video acceleration.

Cheers to everyone who showed support, I really do wish I could have continued working on this but unfortunately my G4, my only testing machine had a logic board failure which severely damaged the progress of the project.

LeopardAssist's parent development group has ceased development of its entire product line, but LeopardAssist in its entirety has been open sourced and relocated to SourceForge.

Full details at the former website. http://mac.profusehost.net

The code base of this application is unable to be ported to newer releases of the RB Compiler, meaning it can not be adapted to run on Intel or even take advantage of the velocity engines in G4 or G5 microprocessors, that coupled with lack of development time or resources means unfortunately the development of this application will be halted.

In response to ghostwriter's reply regarding servers, the link WAS fixed but was later broken again due to server issues.

Download link fixed. Unfortunately the app is somewhat of a black hole at the core and the attempts to resolve bugs aren't going well. Development is not dead though, I assure that.

It seems to be a compiler issue as it compiles fine under an older version of the compiler. However the older one only compiles for PowerPC, not Intel.

May need to wait for a compiler update.

1.0 has run more efficiently and more stable on our test machines, and has a few last minute changes to improve it a little.

Source Code has been posted on the CrossWire site.

Last post for the night (1:36 AM here)... so here's a quoted text for all to read:

Currently the core is migrated to a more Acquisition style (Frostwire/Limewire) system which we plan to have fully operational with Xcode by 1.0. The UI will be receiving a major lift if all goes according to plan. Both visual and code wise. Connection code, controllers, graphics, etc will be rewritten in progression.

2 builds we have compiled, "2G96" which is the Cabos based majorly used version, and "6G72" which is a more internal code-from-scratch version. 2696 will be made fully open sourced ASAP, but 6G72 will remain closed due to it's very low/no dependence on Cabos code or architectures.

Both have the same UI, but may change during development.
[Version 1.0b4]
