  1. The IIgs will give you the most flexibility. That's what I'd keep if I had to keep only one machine.
  2. Very cool - thanks for porting this! If you really want to go old-school, I've made this available as a download in my Basic Files section on my BBS (telnet://cqbbs.ddns.net:6502). Download directly to your Apple II hard drive!
  3. I think the only way to do it is with an Applesauce unit, and it looks like that only writes to 3.5" disks.
  4. And don't forget the soon-to-be-released Nox Archaist!
  5. The games themselves will look fine in 4:3, but the game selection screen will not look very good as it is designed for widescreen. Adding roms is easy via a USB thumb drive or wifi.
  6. The $1 shipping is a deal-breaker for me...
  7. It should only take a few seconds to init. Try this copy. PT3.1.zip
  8. Were you able to get to this screen? If so, just go to Online and try your AT commands with different baud settings. If not, I'd try another copy of ProTERM 3.1 - there are a lot of bad ones out there...
  9. I'd use a one of the Hayes modem drivers, and make the init string blank. Once you get in, hit option-t (closed apple-t) to get into terminal mode and see if you can issue some at commands. Make sure that your baud rate in your Online Parameters match your modem settings.
  10. Here's the latest version: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tvu5w7fzw0v45tf/ufb25.zip?dl=0
  11. I first saw a IIe in a computer store while on a family trip when I was in about 8th grade. I begged my parents to stop there and remember playing a demo that had a rabbit moving around a maze to get a carrot. I begged my parents incessantly to get one and eventually they caved, buying one from a local Team Electronics store. I had a few games, but couldn't afford much so I played around with BASIC programming. Once I got my 300 baud Hayes MicroModem II and discovered pirate BBS's and AE Lines, my game library increased exponentially! We also got IIe's in our high school and traded a ton of games there. For me, the IIe was all about getting and playing games, and Broderbund games were my favorite - Karateka, Prince of Persia, and Wings of Fury. AutoDuel by Origin Systems was also a favorite. For two player games, I liked Hardball and Mario Bros, which of course my friend and I only played in deathmatch mode! I ran a BBS / AE Line of my own on and off for several years and revived it a couple of years ago, so I'm having a blast reliving my Apple II days. And it's so cool that all these great games are now being converted to ProDOS by qkumba so we can play massive collections of games, like Total Replay, right from our hard drives!
  12. Not me - way too hard... Super Pro Tennis is much more fun.
  13. ProTerm 3.1 is the way to go. You'll have to hit Option-T to get into the terminal where you can enter AT commands. And make sure your terminal and modem are set to the same baud rate under the options. Spectrum is another option but it's slow if you don't have an accelerator. Hope to see you on CQ!
