  5. Hi, I'm relatively new to c128 and I'm wondering what sort of file browsers and what capabilities are out there. I've been using dc1280 on my c128d for file browsing, copying, disk imaging, etc... I found it to be kinda buggy (Even dc64 in c64 mode and indeed on my c64 breadbin). Here are some of the issues I found w/ dc1280: -when creating a directory, you get prompted, but after typing name (and no error given), the directory simply doesn't appear. -when making a disk from a d64 or d81... You can wait for the entire process to complete, then afterwards? The disk seems to have been untouched (nothing on it). -Disk format chokes and errors out. -When doing a multiple file copy that involves more than one screen fulls worth of selections... It simply copies the first file. Anybody else have similar results? Anybody using a different program with similar feeatures?

All in good shape, pics on request... -Apple IIc Plus -Apple IIc carry case -Apple Mouse -Apple mouse pad -Apple 3.5" external drive -VGA interface (http://www.a2heaven.com/webshop/index.php?rt=product/product&path=73&product_id=135) -Assembly Lines: The Complete Book (https://www.amazon.com/Assembly-Lines-Complete-Roger-Wagner/dp/1312089407/ref=pd_bxgy_14_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1312089407&pd_rd_r=7edf3ada-f9d1-11e8-983a-1d3d78e30f53&pd_rd_w=imO8x&pd_rd_wg=LMRWw&pf_rd_p=6725dbd6-9917-451d-beba-16af7874e407&pf_rd_r=AMDXEP2CH6RQPVZ4RANH&psc=1&refRID=AMDXEP2CH6RQPVZ4RANH) -Sophistication & Simplicity: The Life and Times of the Apple II Computer (https://www.amazon.com/Sophistication-Simplicity-Times-Apple-Computer/dp/0986832278/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544153809&sr=8-1&keywords=apple+II) -The New Apple II User's Guide (https://www.amazon.com/New-Apple-II-Users-Guide/dp/0615639879/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544153871&sr=8-1&keywords=apple+II+users) (Mine is the original cover) -The Applesoft Basic Programmer's Reference Manual (https://www.amazon.com/Applesoft-Programmers-Reference-Manual-1987-07-03/dp/B01FIZ9O3K/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1544154297&sr=1-5&keywords=applesoft+programmers) -Sun Enterprise 2: This machine doesn't boot and is very heavy. That being said, it has a 50-pin SCSI optical drive. one processor card and 4xram simms. The case isn't pristine, so it's really just good for some parts. All the internals look very good. Assuming the PS is shot. - Floppy-EMU (rev2in a clear case) What do I want in trade: -Mac PDS IIe card -SE/30 ethernet card -AppleCDSC or CD150 -128MB RAM (for SE/30)30-pin 16mb x 8 SIMMs -scsi2sd v5 -Compact Mac travel bag Mostly into: -Commodore computer oddities -C64 boxed games -Amiga Boxed games -PET or B-series stuff -Ultimate 1541 II+ -RRnet
  7. The IIc plus may be gone. Working on a swap .
  8. Just an update, the only items left are: -Apple IIc Plus. Works perfect but top of case is cracked. -High-Speed SCSI Card (Clone) -Mockingboard (Reactive clone)
  9. Bummer I dont Facebook. Suckerberg and his lot are destroying western civilization.
  10. Howdy, For my own sanity and marital bliss I decided to limit my old retro computing to Commodore stuff. As such I figured I'd throw my stuff up here and see if there is any interest. As most of this stuff was acquired in the last 2-3 years I would prefer to trade for interesting C= stuff as, most folks may not feel like paying the prices I did. Oh course selling is an option. Here's the list: IIgs rom1: -8mb ram card -Reactive Micro drive -High-Speed SCSI Card (Clone) -Mockingboard (Reactive clone) -Uthernet II IIgs rom3: -Apple ram card fully populated to 1mb -Apple high-speed scsi card -Uthernet II Accessory stuff: -IIgs rom1 motherboard (working) -SystemSaver IIgs (Weather stripping foam on the bottom could use restoration) -2x3.5" drives -1x5.25" drive -RGB Monitor, great picture -Apple ADB keyboard -2xApple desktop mice (Ergo style) -Kensington ADB trackball -Alps ADB trackpad Flawed: -Apple RGB monitor (sometimes perfect, sometimes blurry, sometimes skewed. Haven't yet (or probably ever at this point have time to take a look at it:) ) -Apple IIc Plus. Works perfect but top of case is cracked. -Platinum 5.25" drive (works perfect but case has couple of cracks) -Joystick IIe (orange buttons) works perfect, but cable is worn and taped) Here is a list of stuff I would like to aquire: -Commodore C128D -Commodore 1581 -1541 Ultimate II cartridge -Pet 2001 and/or accessories -Amiga 1000 and/or accessories -Amiga 3000 -Amiga 1200 keyboard/case -C= Datasette -Rare or oddball CBM stuff -IIe PDS card (For my uncle's Color Classic) Who knows? Perhaps something else?
  11. Keep hoping buddy. :/ (God knows, I'm right there with you). A year or so ago there was a TranswarpGS clone made (like 10 boards) up on Reactive Micro, but they were selling at $777.77. I could not justify that much cash just for decent speeds on my IIgs. If it adds any bit of hope, I emailed Reactive not too long ago and was told the project had not been canceled, but no word since.
  12. I've had many, many older Apple machines... What machines have I kept? My Apple IIgs stuff. (Currently cleaning out my other Apple II stuff as my Commodore things have sort of taken all of my available space). That being said, the classic Black and white Mac offers a unique gaming experience, not quite as wide in scope as a IIgs, but 'those' mac games are very appealing to me. Here is a small list of games that were coded specifically for mac, not ports and as such are very good: -Rogue (Epyx): I maintain this is the best version of Rogue ever written. I am a huge Rogue fan too. This game crashes on any old Mac with ROMs never than an original SE. -Shufflepuck cafe: I think this is the best version of Shufflepuck written. It's not that the action is better than any other color version, I guess it's the 1-bit graphics that holds it's charm. -Pools of Radiance: I think the best version of this game. It's certainly the only version I would bother to replay. (It's successive sequels were crappt DOS ports that look and play tragically bad compared to this title) -Arkaniod: The black and white graphics and certain charm of the old Mac lends itself surprizingly well to this game. -Might and Magic: Another RPG coded for the mac. Again, it's sequels were ports, but the original was GREAT! -Airborne: Another arcade. Great game. -Quarterstaff: Another RPG. The closed thing to actual Dungeons and Dragons [probably] ever. However, it has an unfortunate bug that makes the game impossible to win. In my opinion the greatest infocom game written. -Thexder: Amazing this game could be pulled off well in black and white. Couple other games of note: -Dark Castle -Apache strike -Ultima III -Bard's Tale -Wizardy That being said, I still keep my Apple IIgs. I wanted one back in the day, but was too poor (I was a Commodore Kid). I love the sound chip and all in all the IIgs is better capable of arcade games. PLUS, you have access to pretty much ALL the 8-bit apple II stuff. These games will seem primitive compared to the 16-bit machines and even primative to those who had a C64 or Atari 800, but they are novel and a bit more impressive than say a CBM PET or Tandy Model 1-4. Here are a few impressive IIgs games: -Captain Blood: Very well executed on the IIgs platform -Arkanoid: A+ maybe my favorite version even over the Amiga. -Rastan: WOW! The IIgs could do this? -Bard's Tale: Looks and sounds great! -Zany Golf: Really gives the Amiga version a run for it's money. -Thexder: Maybe my favorite version. -Silpheed: Very cool arcade game. -The Immortal: Plays too slow really w/o an accelerator, but a great game with one! -Tower of Myraglen: Rogue-like game with much a charm of it's own. -LemmingsGS: Plays great, but you'll need 1.5meg RAM. Kind of a big deal back in the days, but cheap enough to obtain now. Some 'Me too' games programmed to show the IIgs could do what was selling well on Macs (Even color Macs): -Solarian -Crystal Quest -Shufflepuck cafe Some 'Why bother' stinkers (If I had bought these I would have felt SO ripped off, both games bested by C64 versions) -Paperboy -Gauntlet All said and done, most games that actually made it to a IIgs version are good games, but Apple crippling this machine with a SLOW CPU is a real drag. It's a neat machine, but accelerators are made of unobtanium and getting a very unable machine is harder than picking up a Mac Plus and a second floppy. I myself would still rather (and still do) have an Apple IIgs, but back in the day? I'm glad I was stuck with a C64 until I got my hands on an Amiga 500. My vote between the two: If you onl;y have room for one, have the time and want/can build an Apple IIgs, go for the IIgs. If not, get a Mac Plus or Mac SE with a second floppy, hard drive, or Floppy-EMU (bigmessowires.com) and call it good. Feel free to PM me if you are interested in what is really needed for a minimal IIgs setup, perhaps I can save you some research time. An old Mac and a Floppy-EMU and you are ready to go. After the way Apple treated this machine and the customers that bought it? If I had bought an Apple IIgs new, I would have never bought another Apple product again.
  13. "Cool Commodore Stuff" (Defined) Anything with the Chicken on it. Some things I could use: -1541 drive -1011 drive (Or any amiga drive including internals for A2000) -A1200 keyboard and case -Zorro ethernet card -Plipbox -C64 carts -Wico joysticks -A1000 (and/or RAM expansions, upgrades...) -1084, 1950, 1960, 1942, 2002 monitor(s) If you have something, hit me up. I may have other Apple II stuff I may trade outside of the IIe.
  14. Just puting in a good word for Stephena. I bought the C= 1942, it arrived in great shape in Utah, USA. Very great packing job!
  15. The Atari STe has been traded away... Apple IIe is still up for trade... Also, a partially functioning IIc.
