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). My updated version has AppleWorks 2,3,4 and 5, plus copyllplus9 and PublishIT4.
I have Super Selector on an actual scsi drive connected to my real lle.
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.
I created a 32MB Hard Drive image of AppleWorks II w/PinPoint installed in Virtual IIe Emulator . It boots directly to AppleWorks. There’s nothing exotic. Just AppleWorks and Pinpoint. I was working through the Spell Checker, for the most part.
I finally upgraded from Virtual II v7.4 to 8.6. It seemed to reach that critical mass of new features and fixes. I downloaded the new app, moved the old app version out of its directory and copied the new app in its place. http://virtualii.com/
For earlier versions, some that run on G4’s, see link at bottom of this page.
From there I just began starting my saved Virtual II sessions. Here are a few in the list:
Prodos32 ✔️, OmniDisk Hard Drive versions of AppleWorks, Copy II+
Fishies ✔️, AleClock, ✔️ MouseDesk2 ✔️, GEOWrite ✔️, GEOPublish, ✔️ pfs:Write, ✔️PublishIT4, and many others.
There were some instances of crashing but once I rebooted the session everything thereafter was fine.
Here are some pictures:

The screen below illustrates the variety of saved sessions I play with.
One significant difference I noticed was in the increase print quality of GeoWrite and GeoPublish apps. Here are the afters and before pictures:
This is the whole 1st page which I just updated. I did NOT bold the entry of August 11, 2018 so you can see difference.
For earlier versions that run on Mac OS 10.4 on G4s Check here. I have an earlier version running on my iMac G4 “flower pot” computer.
