  1. The CFFA3000 is a good choice, but it is something of a jack-of-all-trades solution. The Micro Drive Turbo is faster when it comes to data transfer and FloppyEmu supports .woz files. I wish all copy protected Apple II software was available in the .woz format, and while that may never be the case, at least most of the important games are. And if not, then at least there should be a clean crack available for most of the rest.

  3. A fine looking system, could you tell us how you cleaned and relubricated the bearings on the drive sled stepper motor?
  4. It is best to access Oldskool.org files via FTP, as Google dropped support for in-brower FTP support and and it was fairly lousy when it did work for the past several years.
  5. Start with the built-in diagnostics, which can test the memory. I believe you hold open and closed apple and turn on the power.
  6. New and updated information included in the attached spreadsheet Mockingboard Software Audit 05-26-21.zip
  7. Ape Escape appears to be looking for a Mockingboard with an SC-01 speech chip, otherwise it hangs unless the Mockingboard is removed.
  8. The Ape Escape .woz image boots on my //e, but it does not get past the title screen if my Phasor is in the system. The game runs correctly when the card is removed. The .woz image and the pirate file-based cracks also behave identically in AppleWin.
  9. Disk images for Lancaster's Mockingboard version were made available outside Asimov, as my spreadsheet indicated. That version found its way, without the compromises that the .dsk dump had, in the A-Woz-A-Day collection.
  10. That is an excellent question, I see no reason for Champions of Krynn to require a 65C02 CPU. The previous Gold Box games released for the Apple II, Pool of Radiance and Curse of the Azure Bonds, do not require one. My suggestion is that whomever SSI got to do the port was working with a 65C02 compiler and the issue was not discovered until it was too late to add compatibility for 6502s.
  11. I found the Apple II Reference card for the game and it specifically states at the end "Note: This game requires that your computer have a 65C02 processor." Of course it does not say so on the box itself, so I bet SSI or the stores had to process a few returns and deal with a few angry customers. Champions of Krynn - Command Card.pdf
  12. The word is sufficiently promising for me to take a chance on it. I did find one game that does require an Enhanced IIe by accident. AD&D Champions of Krynn will crash at the title screen if an unenhanced //e is used. It does not say it requires an Enhanced //e on the box, but both 1.0 and 1.1 will play only on an Enhanced //e.
  13. I asked the author about it in the comments section here and he said he would look into why it runs on an enhanced IIe and not an unenhanced IIe : What about Nox Archaist? There is a suggestion that it requires an enhanced IIe : https://nox-archaist.myshopify.com/collections/nox-archaist/products/nox-archaist-digital-edition
  14. Mockingboard is only employed for music, speech comes from the internal speaker. Also, this homebrew only supports an Enhanced //e or better (or just a 65C02 CPU), so those of us without are left out in the cold.
