  2. Thank you for an excellent plugin. I’ve wanted something like this for quite some time now. I have however found what I believe to be two bugs:

    1. If the Finder’s “Show icon preview” is activated, the icons for files with the .d64 extension will change to what D64QLPlugin allows you to see with Quick Look.

    2. If Quick Look is used in full screen mode, D64QLPlugin will not correctly display the contents of the file with the .d64 extension. In some cases, scroll bars make it impossible to read what is being displayed.

    I can elaborate and possibly present screenshots if it would help you track down and quash these bugs.

  6. Thank you for the plugin. However, I only get the .d64 listing in the popup when hitting the space bar. I do not see a bunch of listings in cover flow mode as you show in your image above. I have not rebooted since adding your plugin, could that be the cause?

  7. OSX 10.6.7
    Tried checking/unchecking both of the following without change:
    – Show Icon Preview
    – Always open in cover flow

    Cover flow always shows the black 5-1/4″ disk icon with the “COMMODORE FLOPPY” label.
    Popup still works great! However, when going full screen with the popup, the font size does not scale, so the tiny text is displayed at the same tiny size up in the top-left corner with the entire screen blue-ish purple.

  8. Thanks for this wonderful plugin. I have been using it for a while, and soon my OS X Lion will get it installed aswell.

  9. Thanks a million… this is how emulation and filehandling should be done on a Mac (or any computer that has GUI). Would it be possible to generate a script that outputs these directories as a graphic file (PNG, JPG, e.g.) and name it the same as the d64 file? Would be just perfect for cataloging stuff that goes to all those out there that don’t have a bight shiny apple on their desk. This would help alot.

    Keep it up!
