More MouseDesk 2 – Apple IIGS this time

November 26, 2018

My previous post for MouseDesk 2 dealt with the IIe and Laser. This post has some pictures and details on my experience on the Apple IIGS. The previous post was on April 1, 2018.

The IIGS is a Rom01 with a TransWarpGS, and for this experience a 3.5 with a FloppyEmu attached. In the final couple pictures I boot GSOS from the SCSI Drive and then invoke MouseDesk 2. [ It’s really rather redundant, but fun to see ].

Above I tried to run AppleWorks with Pinpoint Accessories but pathname was too long for AppleWorks / Pinpoint to deal with.


Here I started PublishIT4 and ran with no issues.

Below, I booted from the SCSI Drive. It’s partitions are Geek1 and Geek2.

The FloppyEmu partitions are all the other disk icons. Note, they are represented by 3.5″ floppy images. I suppose since the FloppyEmu boots off the SmartPort.

From the desktop I drilled down in GSharddrive and started up the GSOS App called Write Away. When I exited Write Away back to the GSOS Desktop. I was able to SAVE the document I created in Write Away.


Super Selector for Apple II ProDos – Quick Keys

December 17, 2017

I’ve been working with the Super Selector v3.2.2 on the Hard Drive (Virtual and Real) on the Apple IIe. I wanted to change some of the “Quick-Keys” which startup  programs you assign to them.  It turns out the entry of the information is easy. However, the saving  your entry process is has an extra step not noted in the screens process. Quick-Key Setup.

1) You use the Open-Apple-Q to bring up the Menu of Quick-Keys.

2) From there you select the Quick-Key you’d like to change by scrolling to it
and hitting the Return Key. This brings up the edit menu for that item.

3) You change the Title of the Quick-Key on the top line and the path on the
second line.

4) Then you select Open-Apple-A to Accept.
[ the Accept box disappears ]

5) Lastly, you a) hit esc to go back to the Main Menu b) Then type Open-
Apple-O to go to the Options Screen and then c) you save permanently with Open-Apple-S. You’ll see the box blink a little.

On the Save screen there are other configuration options. See below:

[ Super Selector 3.2.2 ].

Not only are you saving the Quick-Key you just Setup, but also the location. In my case I run from a Hard Drive (OmniDisk in the Emulator as well as SCSI Drive in real lle) so Slot 7 Drive 1 is the selection. When you use Open-Apple-S to Save the Config you’ll see the Box with “Save Copy” change to semi-solid background until save is completed.
