  1. It is not present in any released firmware, official or JB.
  2. Is the woz1 format supposed to be huge? AppleWin complains that the file sizes are too big, and these images run 916KB or so. The woz-a-day releases rarely are larger than 230KB.
  3. This video explains why classical music by composers who have been dead for centuries can sometimes be copyrighted :
  4. The full version works just fine with the Mega Sg, as I demonstrate here :
  5. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that board to be released, that guy rarely finishes anything.
  6. If anyone wants to know in technical terms why Risky Rick fails in certain emulators, dumpers, flash carts and modded consoles, the answer can be found here: http://blog.kevtris.org/?p=175
  7. Actually, I found a Mockingboard version which behaves like the pirate crack but doesn't have the pirate skull animation. So there may be four versions of this game, unless the pirate version is just a crippled hack of this Mockingboard version. I am inclined to think that the pirate version is because the scenario disk used by it is interchangeable with the scenario disk used by the Mockingboard version which behaves like it (non-skippable intro, 100 starting stats). A handy program is called Exodus Construction Set, which can edit maps and characters and such. It identifies two versions of Ultima III, and if the game starts you off with 100 stats, its Version 1 and if 150 stats, its version 2. The 100 stats version may have faster monster spawning rates on the Sosaria map. So in short, there may never have been a non-Mockingboard version of this game. Moreover, AppleWin has a bug where .dsk and .woz/.nib images do not work well with each other. The trilogy version is only in .dsk format and the later Mockingboard version is only in .nib/.woz format, so their incompatibility may be solely due to an emulator and they may be just two dumps of the same version. Finally, there is no joystick support in any version of Ultima III for the Apple II. My information was mistaken.
  8. Ultima III was supposedly released in three versions for the Apple II. The first was without Mockingboard support, the second added Mockingboard support and the third was released with the Ultima Trilogy and weirdly adds joystick support. Ultima III requires you to save characters to a scenario disk, a copy of the Player Master disk. None of the Player Master disks are compatible which each other. The only available disk image for the Non-Mockingboard version, from Asimov or elsewhere, is a pirated version with an animated skull on the title screen : This version has a few differences from the Mockingboard versions. First, you cannot bypass any part of the four title screen animations by pressing a key. Second, once the animation is over, the pirate version displays a "Insert Game Disk-1,2" message. The Mockingboard versions display "Insert Scenario Disk". The available scan Players Reference Card, https://www.mocagh.org/loadpage.php?getgame=u3, identifies the behavior of the Mockingboard version. But the box and its scans are not the earliest as shown by the references to the Apple //c, a computer from 1984. This game was released in 1983. One thing I noticed is that with this pirated version, characters start out with 100/100/100 HP/Food/Gold whereas Mockingboard and Trilogy and all versions for other systems give you 150/150/150 HP/Food/Gold. Was this something Origin changed early on to slightly ease the starting difficulty or was this a byproduct of the crack or some damage to the disk?
  9. The switches determine which drive is effectively going to be drive A, drive B and drive C. Make sure one of them is set to 0 and the other is set to 1 unless you're booting from an external drive. There is another switch for that on the side of the computer. If you are booting externally, then neither drive should be 0 and one of them has to be 2.
  10. They are all 1, it is a bug in the latest firmware where the serial number is not reported properly.
  11. No, it does not on an Nt Mini. Proof is attached. vcs.zip
  12. A demonstration of several homebrew games working in the Mega Sg :
  13. Those have been noted in the Unofficial Supplement that accompanies the jailbreak firmware. Three buttons should be recognized in passthrough mode.
  14. Thanks for the kind words, but my GBC list contains only games that will work on an original Game Boy, Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Light or Super Game Boy. There are more games that support GB and GBC than those, but those are the ones I recommend.
