ProDOS versions Apple ][

I was going through a bunch of disks and decided to see what versions were present. If you have others please post.

Thanks to Steve N. from Facebook. 1.3 had quite a bug and didn’t last long in the wild.

CiderPress on macOS 10.nn via Wine (see link below)

March 17, 2017

I’ve been a long time user of CiderPress for Windows to manage images for my Apple II computers. But, it required me to run Parallels for macOS.  [ since I haven’t permitted Windows computers among family members since 2005; I got tired of fixing everyone’s issues ]. So, when this popped up I jumped at it. Straight download, app lands on desktop and off you go. So far, it’s down everything I’ve needed. I’m running macOS Sierra in case you need that for reference.

Advantage Computing Top 100 for Apple II

March 14, 2017

Six disks of early Apple II productivity tools, utilities and games. The Wheel of Fortune was interesting. Very functional but no graphics. See picture. Double sided disks. I don’t know if they’re on Asimov or Internet Archive sites. I’ll check and report. https://archive.org/search.php?query=Advantage&and%5B%5D=mediatype%3A%22software%22

Beagle Brothers TimeOut Accessory





Double-Take | Beagle Brothers | 

March 5, 2017

Was recently looking at some of the Beagle Brothers tools and noted Double-Take. It has 2-way scroll. Nice for program listings and catalog pause and up down scrolling, among many other tools. Boot it’ control-F for prompt and select 1,2, or 3 for variations.

Note: this is version 2.1 which is ProDOS. This version is available on the Asimov and Internet archives. However, that file is a .po file. From it I made a .do file which will run in the Virtual ][ Emulator…which rejects most .po types including this one. If you need the .do version just Private Message me.
