MultiScribe 3.01c for Apple II ProDOS 8

September 7, 2017

Here is the MultiScribe program that became BeagleWrite. I didn’t have a MultiScribe Desk Accessory disk image so I just inserted the BeagleWrite Desk Accessory version and worked like a charm.

Some of the programs on the 32MB OmniDisk.Selecting file.inserted fonts disk.selecting fonts with spacebar.The GRIMM font.Using the BeagleWrite Desk Accessory disk BBW.Catalog of the subdirectory.

Lots of fun font play and different justifications. The justifications are controlled by inserting rulers.


BeagleWrite for Apple II – ProDOS 8

September 6, 2017

BeagleWrite was formerly MultiScribe. I’m giving this version 3.3 a try out. I downloaded the zip file (see link below) and started playing with it here in Virtual II Emulator. I tested the actual program disk, etc and then copied it to a subdirectory on the OmniDisk 32MB .2mg drive which I use as home base for many programs. [ note: I convert the .po files to .2mg and .do so they’ll run in the Emulator. I use the Wine version of CiderPress to do that on my MacBook ]. I have AppleWorks v2,3,4,5, PublishIt4, Copy II+ v9.1, Apple System Utilities 2.1 and 3 plus others (picture of them at bottom). 

BeagleWrite ran fine from the OmniDisk “hard drive”. But I had to put the Accessories.dsk in the Floppy drive for them to work. I couldn’t find a option to change the path to the hard drive for them. Data disk path change was relatively straight forward. Enough here…more notes with the screen shots.

About 8 fonts. You adjust pretty readily.

There are rulers you can use which allow you to change justification.
Accessories 

Running the Spell Check accessory.

Setting the pathnames for the dictionaries.
Spell Checking

When spell checking it doesn’t give you intuitive corrections for misspelled words. Example: I spelled Spetember and it began making suggestions at “Sp”. Once you realize this things went very well. Nice Dictionary. 
Calendar.

For some reason it starts the calendar at September 1918. You can quickly correct by grabbing the scroll down button.

Italicised date tells you it has a note.

Entered a note.
Clock good.

Calculator good.

Printer options. I always use ImageWriter and Super serial while using the Virtual II emulator.

This is an actual screen shot on my MacBook of the PDF Virtual II creates.

Programs on the OmniDisk. 

This is before I added BeagleWrite and MultiScribe.


Beagle Brothers 3.5″ Disk Collection – TimeOut Disks

September 2, 2017

Picked up a batch of the Beagle Brothers 3.5″ disks to go with some others. This batch had one Demo and one Beagle Buddy disk. These aren’t listed anywhere online among all the sites. But I’m still researching. 

Two Beagle Brothers disks Disk Demo and Beagle Buddy seem pretty rare. They verify and copy just fine as you can see below in the pictures of the desktop. [there are some duplicates here, but in some cases there two different version by checking creation dates ]

1) I couldn’t find their disk images online anywhere so I’ll upload to Asimov and/or Internet Archive (unless someone can point me to an image).

2) the Beagle Buddy is Disk #2. Anyone have Disk #1 and able to upload an image.

3) Anyone know of any other Demo Disks?


These are the 3.5″ disks I’ve collected along the way. Only one is non-readable. It’s marked with an X on tape attached to side of disk.

RamWorks8M from A2Heaven.com for Apple IIe

August 13, 2017

I bought this 8 MB RamWorks8M card from A2Heaven.com to max out the memory in my IIe. My IIe was using both a RamWorks 1 and an Apple 1 MB cards taking up the Aux Slot and another Slot. With the RamWorks8M card I could eliminate the Apple 1MB card and open a slot, as well as reducing electrical draw. The following pictures include shots from both my actual IIe and the Virtual II Emulator. The Emulator provides better clarity of image since I need to reduce resolution so much with real pictures to save space.

The card is little bigger than a credit card. Note the pointing finger and keyboard image on the card to illustrate direction of Install.
