Brother SuperNoteBook Graphic – Runs GEOSĀ 

April 21, 2017

I bought this because it runs GEOS and was curious on the implementation. It runs GEOS over MS-DOS. It runs quite smoothly. It came with all the manuals, disks, etc. I ordered a battery for it. Shipping from Asia as far as I can make out. Keeping fingers crossed. It’s very quiet.  Keyboard feel is terrific. You’ll see Apple GEOS entries throughout this blog; geoPublish, geoWrite, geoCalc and more.



GEOCalc on OmniDisk on Virtual ][ Apple IIe Emulator

January 12, 2017

GEOCalc is quite fluid in the Emulator at 2x or 3x speed. It must have been terribly slow at 1 MHz with disk drive access too. It reprints whole screen quite often.

Pretty nice once you understand the functioning.

OmniDisk SCSI Hard Drive Image in Virtual ][

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.
