A SCSI Hard Drive in Virtual ][.
This is a 2mg image I created in Virtual ][. It boots to Super Selector v3.22 which is a text based Program Selector. It works with a mouse or keyboard. I’ve also installed System Utilities v3.1, MouseWrite v2.6.8 and MouseCalc. I’ve already set the default startup subdirectories for MouseWrite, including Accessory and Speller (which you get to via Accessory). I have some Christmas greetings docs you can open for starters.
I have Super Selector on an actual scsi drive connected to my real lle.
The original 32 MB image supplied by the group.
Per Facebook Apple ll Enthusiasts forum. I have a question. Virtual II on my Macbook Pro has trouble with a 32Mb .po disk image (unrecognized format, it says). I imagine I will be able to use it with the Apple II emulator on Win, but I wanted to ask if anyone knows how to make Virtual II open such files. After all, I bought this software… Thanks!!!
Courtesy of Mark Pilgrim who illustrated how to do this. You need to convert it to a .2mg image with CiderPress, then go to Virtual II configuration and set up a SCSI II Card with an OmniDisk. Then you can “Insert OmniDisk Image…” (under Media menu) to mount the .2mg image.

Tough game, even with a joystick. I asked about cheats. I’m going to try them.
I never did get theses cheats to actually work. I tried 3 different versions of Sea Dragon (different cracks) and none restarted the game from the monitor * prompt. I’m attaching the 3 version startup screens…note cracker names.
The control-J does get you 9999 units of air instead of the default 6000.

A drive I picked up. It actually works. Now a lot of external and maybe some internal cleaning is in order.
If you look closely there’s a PublishIt Symbols and Slogans disk inside it. The disk read fine. I was able to catalog and import images to PublishIt 4.

Apple ll DOS based game. Select from different historical teams and stadiums. It has a self play mode which is fun to watch. If you have Apple disks for this please drop me a note. Only a couple exist on the standard archive sites.
