Is the original Questron compatible with the IIgs in IIe mode? I tried the TOSEC images on my CFFA3k and it freezes at "Your adventure is about to begin". I checked them with kegs, and I get the same result, along with every other set of Questron images. Load them in AppleWin and they start right up. Any tips to get this to run on my hardware?
I've been experimenting with Apple II emulation lately both on my computer and my modded Xbox, particularly because I'm a big Sierra fan. The Apple II versions of the original AGI (typing) games (King's Quest 1-3, Space Quest 1-2, Police Quest 1, Leisure Suit Larry, etc.) had the superior sound. The only trouble I've run into is the emulation, particularly on my Xbox which is where I would prefer to play, is quite slow and disk load times are killer. I've experimented with building virtual hard drives with some limited success. What I'd like to do is play those games in ScummVM for Xbox. Apparently ScummVM will play Apple II games and it will emulate the Apple II sound chip. Where I've run into trouble is the only versions I have of those games are disk images (*.2mg) and ScummVM will only recognize a folder with the Apple II files in it. Where I'm running into trouble is finding a way to extract the game files from the disk images and then getting ScummVM to recognize them. Anybody out there have any experience with this?
So, i've just obtained a nice tested and repaired base model apple IIgs on ebay for $55.00 free shipping (haven't gotten it yet). I did some research on converting RGB to VGA which lead me to this site http://carnationsoftware.com/carnation/RSS/Apple_II/Apple_IIgs_Monitor.html. Now I only need a keyboard, mouse, and a way to load data. I've came across some modern hard drive replacements. But they're very expensive. I've also came across some ADT-PRO adaptors like this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/232006005066?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT on ebay. I've also happened to stumble upon a scsi2sd adaptor. Not sure if it'll work or not though. Are there any other options i'm not aware of? Do i have just about everything i need?
