Scart Adapter and RGB Cable to IIGS w/8″ Eyoyo LCD HDMI

February 25, 2018

I’ve been using the adapter for HDMI connection from my IIGS to my Toshiba TV. [ Pictures of Scart Adapter and RGB Cable are in earlier post ]

I tried it on my Eyoyo 8″ LCD connected to HDMI Port. Here are some pictures. First picture is from Amazon.

Just a quick start to this entry. More details later. This is my Toshiba TV. The presentation is very very good and the text display is the best yet.

Cable order site in Spain. These are made to order…not a stock item. Took about 2 1/2 weeks from order date to receive it here in the states from Spain. Delighted.

GEOS GEOPublish GEOWrite – Drivers Apple II, IIGS, LASER128EX

January 29, 2018

This is just a variety of screen shots I pulled from my library of pictures associated with GEOS applications. They are running on IIGS or Apple IIe, or Laser128EX.

One note: after you select drivers to add they are saved to the GEOS application disk. You’ll see a screen shot of this below. The drivers to be selected.

This is the screen where you select the location for the drivers to be saved.


Recent and not so Recent Accessory Acquisitions

These are just a few of the accessories I have in my collection.


Fishies for the Apple II – ScreenSaver

January 7, 2018

Here’s a nifty little program to lighten your day. Nice to have it running to “sea” something bright. This is running on my IIGS with ManilaGear VGA Adapter to Samsung SyncMaster 710n. It runs nicely in Virtual II Emulator. Then I used ADTPro to write a 5.25 Floppy disk.

TimeTrax II for Apple IIe [ Time-Trax II ]

January 1, 2018

I’ll outline Setup process. Then there are a series of pictures on step by step. It’s running in Virtual II Emulator. Below is the location of the TimeTrax.dsk.

[ To Setup: the key thing is you need to have a workable Data Disk created for this program. So, 1) put a disk in drive 2 and format it with the Utilities part of the TimeTrax program, then 2) you have to make an actual Data File. The program does not create one on the fly like AppleWorks. The funny thing is you need to Save the Data File before you can Add it to the Desktop, and then you can Work it. You Save it from the Main Menu. You’re essentially creating a blank database file which can then work with. If you use the Catalog function from the disk activities option you’ll note the new blank file is 4k or 5k in size. ]

Boot Screen

ProDOS 2.4.1 : I replaced the original ProDOS to allow for better date/time control, I think. I also renamed the default clock.system file so it would not be used and allow ProDOS to read date/time from ThunderClock card in the configuration. See picture below. I’m not sure why the program chose 1996. The Monday January 1st works, but it’s a leap year and 2018 is not.

After you have created a data disk and working file, as mentioned above, you can set it to pull a default schedule. Here it’s looking for A2018 but the data disk is in D6S2 and I needed to change current disk to read S6D2 in this screen shot.

Changing the current disk.

Marking the file I want.

Selecting Work with Schedule.

Schedule is displayed with today’s entries.

Looking at individual appointments.

Print Menu process.

You can print a number of days.

Types of entries to print.

Adding a Personal Holiday. It does not show up on the calendar with the Apple icon like an appointment.

Searching.

Catalog of Disk with new ProDOS 2.4.1 and clock.system renamed. Clock.system tries to read the Computer Peripherals clock. It’s not an option in Virtual II.

I tried using No-Slot-Clock but carries forward today’s date/time from the MacBook but as 1918, not 2018. So I went to using the Thunderclock. Works well. It reads Jan 1, 1996 which has January 1st as a Monday. Only issue is 1996 is a leap year so I lose continuity next month. I have no idea why 1996 is being used.

Here’s the original catalog.

Here’s the configuration.
