    Exclamation Help find backup/mirror of oldest Sega ftp from about 1994.

    Please let me know of any backup/mirror to Sega's developer ftp from about 1994. It's the oldest ftp with Mars developer software and other related tools and it was freely available by manual redirection. Think this had the older non-version 3deditor, mapeditor and sound tools programs for Macintosh, and gnu software (possibly the same gnu assembler to build the same Mars Doom catalogue with the shared Atari Jaguar code).

    Apple appears to have a very strong coincidence with Sega during late 1990s with PowerPc. For example, this three gigabyte "Apple Macintosh Programmers Workshop" ftp is very similar to the old Sega ftp and has lots of useful tools for core 68000 and other supplements (for both 68000 & PowerPc) https://staticky.com/dl/ftp.apple.com/developer/. Possibly setup by the same team which did the Sega ftp with the developer network, as well as the NeXtstep O.S. and marketing campaign "Welcome to the NeXt Level". Supposedly NeXstep developer teams might've outsourced to Apple and or Microsoft during 1996; same time Mars dissipated from the market and MacOS for PowerPC being marketed. Unfortunately no Mars stuff here but might be placed elsewhere with pre-y2k Apple developer tools. Still very useful stuff here for Mars CD development.

    Thanks for any help!

    edit:
    Previous link I posted to Apple's M.P.W. has the last updates from August 2001 for MacOS 9 users. I recommend for MacOS 9 users. Lots of examples for hardware extensions including firewire, usb and communicating with C.D. hardware.

    Some details regarding Segas ftp from 1994

    The new Q3  '95 GNU Manual is now available
    for downloading from the Sega FTP site at:
    ftp://ftp.segaoa.com/pub/gnutools
    Code:
    32X
    32X.FAQ (updated from previous version)
    7/25/95
    GT950822.ZIP (new GNU tools) 8/22/95
    ICD_MARS.ZIP (initial 32x code) 7/24/95
    These are some examples of what files were on the ftp. It appears a BBS account would've been necessary but heard the ftp was freely accessible through manual redirection.

    Your best bet is to contact Nemesis over at spritesmind, who has been trying to archive and catalogue everything he finds on this subject. There's already a good chunk of DTS disc rips and other stuff on his site: http://techdocs.exodusemulator.com/

    Thanks i'll probably join spritesmind when I get a chance since Assemblergames is done.

    Updated main post with some details regarding the ftp. Nothing found yet but some examples might help find it, and there was an alias.
